If the Prize is not claimed by the new Claim Date, the procedures in the preceding sentence will be repeated until an eligible entrant properly claims the Prize in the proper manner and within the proper time constraints.

DETERMINATION OF OFFICIAL WINNER(S):  Sponsor shall have the sole discretion to determine whether the Potential Winner is an official winner of the Prize (an "Official Winner").

If for any reason whatsoever all of the foregoing requirements are not satisfied with respect to a particular Potential Winner, or if Sponsor is unable for any reason to identify the holder of a winning Raffle Ticket or to contact a Potential Winner, then that Potential Winner's Prize will be deemed forfeited and, at Sponsor's sole discretion, an alternate Potential Winner and Official Winner of that Prize will be selected, through another random drawing from the remaining pool of eligible Entries in accordance with the procedures noted in "Notification of Potential Winners" above.
