Attempts made by a participant to submit entries in excess of any limit or otherwise in violation of these Official Rules by using multiple or false contact information or otherwise may be disqualified. Purported entries that are forged, altered, incomplete, late, misdirected, illegitimate, unintelligible, or generated by a macro, bot, or other automated means will not be accepted and will be void.

Entries that comply with the Official Rules and all instructions of MrBeast and are received during the Sweepstakes Period (“Eligible Entries”) will be gathered into a database at the end of the Sweepstakes Period. MrBeast will select twenty (20) potential winner(s) by Monday January 30, 2023, subject to verification. The odds of winning depend on the number of Eligible Entries received.
The decisions of the Sweepstakes Parties with respect to all aspects of the Sweepstakes, including, without limitation, the drawing results, are final and binding on all entrants without right of appeal, including, without limitation, any decisions regarding the eligibility and/or disqualification of entries and/or entrants.
The selected potential winner(s) will be notified Direct Message (DM) in their Twitter account on or before Tuesday, January 31, 2023. The selected potential winner(s) will be required to acknowledge receipt of notification of eligibility for prize, and, if a potential winner is a resident of Canada, to arrange for the administration of the mathematical skill-testing question, which must be answered without aid (mechanical or otherwise) or assistance. Failure to correctly answer the skill-testing question will result in forfeiture of any rights to the prize, and an alternate winner will be randomly selected from the remaining eligible entries. Potential winner(s) may also be required to execute and return Winner Documents as described below or to otherwise acknowledge acceptance of the prize. If no response is obtained within forty-eight (48) hours of notification, or such other period of time as prescribed by applicable law, the prize(s) will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate winner(s) from the remaining eligible entries.
To the extent permitted by the applicable law, potential winners may, in MrBeast’s sole discretion, be required to complete, sign, notarize (if applicable), and return, without alteration and in the form presented by MrBeast, an affidavit/declaration of eligibility and liability/publicity release and tax forms (as applicable) (collectively, the “Winner Documents”) according to MrBeast’s instructions in conjunction with responding to MrBeast’s winner notification as described above or other time frame as specified by MrBeast or its representative. The Winner Documents, if required, are each subject to verification by MrBeast and may require the participant to provide his or her taxpayer identification number and/or a copy of government-issued identification card or number therefrom. For UK entrants, the provisions of the Winner Documents will (unless otherwise stated in these Official Rules) do no more than repeat and/or confirm one or more provisions of these Official Rules.
If any prize, prize notification, or Sweepstakes-related communication is rejected, faulty, or undeliverable; if potential winner does not respond according to the notification’s or MrBeast’s instructions; or if winner or potential winner fails to comply with these Official Rules, the prize may, in MrBeast’s sole discretion, be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected (time permitting) in a random draw selected by computer from the remaining eligible entries, if any. MrBeast is not obligated to pursue more than three (3) alternate winners for any prize for any reason, in which case such prize may go unawarded. In all jurisdictions, MrBeast reserves the right to modify the notification procedures and applicable deadlines for responding in connection with the selection of any alternate potential winner, if any. If a prize is legitimately claimed, it will be awarded. Upon prize forfeiture or inability to use a prize or portion thereof, no compensation will be given and MrBeast will have no responsibility or liability to that participant. To claim a prize, winner must follow the directions in his or her notification.
Prize(s) will be delivered (meaning that MrBeast will make the purchase from the prize winner’s online store) by no later than Friday, February 3, 2023 (unless an earlier timeframe is required by applicable law.) subject to verification of eligibility, receipt of a signed waiver (if required) or completion of another prize-acceptance procedure, and – if the potential winner is a resident of Canada – of correctly answering the mathematical skill-testing question.
There are twenty (20) prize(s) in this Sweepstakes, each consisting of: a purchase to be made by MrBeast from product(s) sold on the prize winner’s store in an amount up to $5,000.00USD (each a “Prize”). The value of each Prize: up to approximately $5,000.00 USD in total. Total value of all Prizes is up to approximately $100,000.00 USD in total. Prize’s may not be redeemed for cash.

For all winners, MrBeast is not responsible for and will not replace any Prize that is undeliverable or does not reach a winner because of incorrect or changed contact information. If winner does not accept or use the entire Prize, the unaccepted or unused part of the Prize will be forfeited and MrBeast will have no further obligation with respect to that Prize or portion of the Prize. MrBeast is not responsible for any inability of a winner to accept or use the Prize (or portion thereof) for any reason. MrBeast reserves the right to substitute the stated Prize or portion thereof with another prize or portion thereof of equal or greater value for any reason, including, without limitation, Prize unavailability. No more than the stated Prize will be awarded. To the full extent permitted by the mandatory provisions of the applicable law, participants waive the right to assert as a cost of winning any Prize, any and all costs of verification and redemption to claim the prize and any liability and publicity which might arise from claiming or seeking to claim a prize.
To the full extent permitted by the mandatory provisions of the applicable law, any Prize must be accepted as is and may not be exchanged, substituted or refunded for an amount of money, sold or transferred, except in MrBeast’s sole discretion. To the greatest extent permissible under applicable laws, each winner agrees that the Sweepstakes Parties do not make any representations, warranties, or guarantees, express or implied, in fact or in law, whether now known or hereinafter enacted, relative to the use or enjoyment of the Prize, including, without limitation, its quality, condition, fitness for a particular purpose, or merchantability.

In such event, MrBeast may award the Prize from non-suspect Eligible Entries received prior to termination, amendment, or suspension (if any) or as otherwise deemed fair and appropriate by MrBeast. In the event of improper play, tampering or unauthorized intervention in the Sweepstakes, the Sweepstakes Parties reserve the right to void any suspect entries. Entrants agree to not damage or cause interruption of the Sweepstakes and/or prevent others from using the Sweepstakes. MrBeast reserves the right to restrict or void online entries or participation from any IP address or other identifiable source if any suspicious entry and/or participation are detected.

If any person supplies false information, obtains entries by fraudulent means, or is otherwise determined to be in violation of these Official Rules in an attempt to obtain any prize, MrBeast may disqualify that person and seek damages from him or her and that person may be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
