In the event the Winner does not accept the prize for any reason, is deemed ineligible by WLRN, or fails to comply with these Official Rules, the prize will be awarded to a substitute winner selected in a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. This process will be repeated, if necessary, until a winner is determined.
