3. HOW TO ENTER THE GAME. There is No Purchase Necessary to participate in the Game. To redeem an Offer and/or participate in the Game, an eligible Participant will need a Digital Device (defined below) and a valid email address. Any such eligible Participant must first download and install the McDonald’s App on their qualifying iOS or Android Device (e.g., an iPhone, Android phone or iPad, Android Galaxy Tab, etc.) (each a “Digital Device”) if they do not already have the McDonald’s App installed. Data rates may apply. The McDonald’s App is free, but only available in the Apple App Store or Google Play (for iOS/Android). In the App Store, compatibility requires iOS 8.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. In Google Play, compatibility requires Android 4.4 or later. Use of the McDonald’s App is subject to the Terms & Conditions for the McDonald’s App, which can be found in the “About, Contact & Legal” tab in the App menu.

Once you have downloaded the McDonald’s App, complete the registration process using a valid email address (if you have not done so already). You will need to enable “Location Services ” in your app settings in order to obtain available Offers at the restaurant you are visiting. For the Game, participating restaurants do not include any McDonald’s in a Walmart® store, contained in or as part of a retail gasoline or fuel station, or in any shopping or other retail mall, in a food court or in or at any of the following sites: a casino, an amusement park, a hospital, a transportation terminal (airport, subway or rail), a toll road stop, a school, a public park, a stadium/sports complex, a zoo, a museum, or in any building that includes a grouping of food outlets and/or shops or at a limited-time venue such as a festival.

To participate in the Game, Participants must use their McDonald’s app at a participating restaurant to redeem the Free Soft Serve Cone Offer during the Game’s Entry Period. One randomly selected participating restaurant will serve the winning Golden Arches cone to the first Participant to redeem the Free Soft Serve Cone Offer at or after the randomly selected winning time (“Winning Time”). The Participant who is served the winning cone will be announced as the potential winner, subject to verification and compliance with these Official Rules. The potential winner will be given instructions to redeem the prize as well as prize claim documents that he/she must complete to be verified as the official winner. 

4. One (1) Prize/ODDS OF WINNING. The prize is McDonald’s soft serve cones for the winner for “life.” The prize will be awarded as a McDonald’s® Arch Card® for $312 and a check for $4,680, total approximate retail value: $4,992. “Life” is defined as one cone each week for 50 years.

ODDS OF WINNING: There are approximately 14,000 participating McDonald’s locations of which one (1) will be randomly selected to award the prize. The odds of visiting the selected McDonald’s restaurant location are approximately 1 in 13,938; the odds of winning the prize in the selected restaurant location will be determined by the time a Participant redeems the Free Soft Serve Cone Offer and the selected winning time for the prize to be awarded.

5. Winner Notification. The potential winner must complete prize claim documents that will include an affidavit of eligibility/release of liability/prize acceptance and publicity release (where permitted by law), and any other documentation reasonably requested by Sponsor. If the potential winner is an eligible Minor, the prize may be awarded to or in the name of winner’s parent/legal guardian, who must execute all prize claim documents and agree to all obligations and undertakings of a winner, both on behalf of himself/herself and the Minor winner, or the prize may be forfeited in its entirety. Potential winner (or his/her parent/legal guardian) will also receive a prepaid overnight envelope for use in returning the documents to the Sponsor for verification. All Prize claim documents must be completed, notarized and received within seven (7) business days. Prize claim documents received after the deadline shall be deemed VOID and the potential winner may be disqualified. Prize claim documents that are complete and duly submitted to the Redemption Center within the required period will be verified within four (4) weeks after the documents are received or as soon thereafter as reasonably practical, and once verified, the prize will be shipped to the winner (or his/her parent/legal guardian if winner is a Minor).

If the potential prize winner (or such Minor winner's parent or legal guardian) cannot be reached after Sponsor or its representative has made a reasonable effort to contact him or her, declines a prize for any reason, or fails or refuses to properly sign and return all prize claim documents by the redemption deadline or if the prize claim documents or any portion of a prize is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to the potential winner, or if it is discovered that the winner made any false statement in any prize claim document, or if the potential prize winner is at any time found to be ineligible or otherwise in violation of these Official Rules (including, without limitation, by using multiple sets of contact information or any other method in an attempt to circumvent the above-stated Entry limitations), or if any potential winner declines a prize, or fails to comply with these Official Rules, such potential winner will be disqualified and will forfeit the prize and all rights to the prize they otherwise might have received. The submission of prize claim documents is solely the responsibility of the potential winner or their parent/legal guardian if the potential winner is a Minor. When sending prize claim documents to the Redemption Center, it is strongly recommended that Participants retain a photocopy of all prize claim documents submitted, and send the submission using the envelope provided.

6. PRIZE/PARTICIPATION CONDITIONS/RESTRICTIONS. All details and other restrictions of prizes not set forth in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. If Sponsor so elects, a potential prize winner may be required to submit to, and cooperate in, a confidential background check to confirm eligibility and security requirements set by the Sponsor to help ensure that the use of any such person in advertising or publicity for the Game will not bring Sponsor into public disrepute, contempt, scandal or ridicule or reflect unfavorably on the Game or the Sponsor as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to refrain from conducting any advertising or publicity associated with a winner for any reason. There is no substitution or cash equivalent for any prize, except that Sponsor in its sole discretion can substitute a prize for a prize of equal or greater value if a prize is not available for any reason. All income taxes (including, without limitation, federal, state and/or local income taxes) on or connected with any prize, and the reporting consequences thereof, are solely the responsibility of the winner. If required by law, Sponsor reserves the right to withhold and remit to the appropriate taxing authorities the amount of any taxes due.

Any person attempting to forge Prize claim documents or defraud Sponsor or any of the Game Entities (defined below) in any way in connection with this Game may be prosecuted to the fullest extent permitted under the law. In the event of a dispute concerning the identity of a Participant, the Participant will be declared to be the registered account holder of the email address associated with the disputed Offer redemption, but only if that person meets all other eligibility criteria. Otherwise, the potential winner may be disqualified and any potential prize won will be forfeited in Sponsor’s sole discretion. A registered account holder is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the applicable email address.

In addition, if the Participant is able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Sponsor will pay as much of the Participant’s fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive; and (8) with the exception of subpart (6) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures established by JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (6) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither Sponsor nor Participant shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. Finally, this arbitration provision is reciprocally binding on all parties, such that both Participant and Sponsor are required to arbitrate their claims against one another.
