Trip Prize Details:

  1. The Trip Prize consists of a four (4)-day, three (3)-night VIP trip for the Trip Winner and one (1) guest to New York City, NY ("NYC"), from approximately Thursday, December 29, 2022, to Sunday, January 1, 2023, to participate in a drawing for a prize in the amount of One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) ("$1 Million Prize") to be conducted shortly after midnight on January 1, 2023, during the live television broadcast of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve on ABC ("Program"). The Trip Prize shall include the following elements:
    1. Round-trip, coach-class airline transportation for two (2) people from the major airport nearest Winner's city to NYC (if within 250 miles of NYC, rail or ground transportation to be substituted);
    2. Three (3) nights' hotel accommodations at a Times Square hotel (selected by Prize Provider in its sole discretion) in NYC (double occupancy, room and tax only);
    3. Two (2) tickets to a welcome dinner at a venue to be selected by DCP Rights, LLC ("Producer") on December 29, 2022;
    4. Two (2) tickets for an exclusive entertainment experience to be determined by Producer (e.g., Broadway show, holiday dinner cruise on the Hudson River, etc.) on December 30, 2022;
    5. Two (2) tickets for an exclusive New Year's Eve dinner and entertainment with other Trip Prize winners and their guests;
    6. Two (2) gift bags, each with a retail value of at least Three Hundred Fifty Dollars ($350);
    7. All meals while in NYC, including the Welcome Dinner on December 29, 2022, and the NYE dinner on December 30, 2022;
    8. Spending money in the amount of One Thousand Dollars ($1,000); and
    9. Ground transportation to and from airports, hotel, and activities in NYC.
  2. Trip Winner shall not be required to travel to NYC to participate in the drawing for, and to remain eligible to win, the $1 Million Prize. Trip Winner may appoint a proxy to take the trip instead, subject to the Trip Prize Terms and Conditions, but Trip Winner will still remain eligible to win the $1 Million Prize.
  3. Trip Winner (or Trip Winner's proxy) may also have the opportunity to participate in the recording and production of the Program and/or appear in the broadcast of the Program, provided that Trip Winner completes and signs all required releases and forms and consents to a background check. If Trip Winner appoints a proxy, the proxy must complete and sign all required releases and clear the background check in order to take the trip. In the event that Trip Winner's designated proxy does not clear the background check, Prize Provider reserves the right, in its sole discretion, either to (i) allow Trip Winner to appoint another proxy to take the trip (subject to background clearance and Prize Provider deadlines); or (ii) allow proxy to travel and to appoint a second proxy (selected by Prize Provider) to participate in the Program.  
  4. For the avoidance of doubt, Trip Winner's eligibility to participate in the Program and/or the drawing for the $1 Million Prize is not affected by Trip Winner's failure to satisfy the Production Requirements and/or by any information obtained pursuant to a background check, but those failures may affect the nature of Trip Winner's appearance and/or degree of participation in the Program. While Trip Winner's eligibility to participate in the drawing for the $1 Million Prize is an element of the Prize, the opportunity to participate in the recording and production of the Program and/or appear in the broadcast of the Program is expressly not an element of the Prize and is determined by Prize Provider in its sole discretion. Prize Provider reserves the right to appoint a proxy to appear and participate in the Program for Trip Winner for any reason as it may determine in its sole discretion. The appointment of any proxy shall not affect Trip Winner's eligibility for the $1 Million Prize.
  5. For tax withholding valuation purposes, the Trip Prize is valued at twenty-seven thousand, five hundred ninety dollars ($27,590) including state taxes in the amount of twelve hundred seventy-four dollars ($1,274) and federal taxes in the amount of six thousand, three hundred sixteen dollars ($6,316).  The Rhode Island Lottery will submit specified tax amounts on behalf of the Trip Winner.
  6. Trip Winner may be responsible for additional taxes resulting from the claimed Prize, above and beyond those taxes withheld, reported and paid on the Trip Winner's behalf by the Rhode Island Lottery to the appropriate agencies.
  7. Trip Winner and Trip Winner's guest ("Guest") must travel on same itinerary. 
  8. If Trip Winner is under the age of twenty-one (21), Guest must be at least the age of majority in Guest's state of residence.  If Trip Winner is twenty-one (21) or older, Guest may be under the age of eighteen (18) but must be at least thirteen (13) years old (as of the first date of travel), and if Guest is a minor in Trip Winner's state, Trip Winner must be the parent or legal guardian of Guest.
  9. All other costs and expenses involved with or related to acceptance and/or participation in the Trip Prize not specifically included in the description of the Trip Prize, including, without limitation, ground transportation, transfers, additional hotel amenities (i.e., spa services, internet access, phone calls, laundry services), fees and gratuities, airline change fees, airline premium seat fees, airline baggage fees (both checked and carry on), and personal expenses such as laundry, valet service, photos, souvenirs, and other incidentals, are the sole responsibility of Trip Winner and Guest. Trip Winner will be required to submit a valid major credit card to the hotel to cover all expenses not specifically awarded as part of the Trip Prize.  Travel and hotel accommodations are subject to availability. 
  10. The date and location of any of the events or activities included in the Trip Prize (individually/collectively, "Event(s)") may be subject to change.  Prize Provider is not responsible if any Event is delayed, postponed, or cancelled for any reason, in whole or in part, and in such event, Prize Provider's only obligation is to award the other elements of the Trip Prize.  No compensation will be paid in lieu of any cancelled Event or any other element of the Trip Prize.
  11. In order to participate in the Trip Prize, Trip Winner must execute all releases and forms required by Prize Provider, including, without limitation, an Appearance and Liability Release, Background Investigation Consent Form, Emergency Medical Release, and Finalist Information Form, and agree to comply with all then-current federal, state, and/or local government and/or agency, network, or Prize Provider laws, regulations, restrictions, guidelines, and/or protocols (collectively, "Production Requirements").  Trip Winner may appoint a proxy (or have a proxy appointed) to participate in the Trip Prize and/or appear in the broadcast of the Program, subject to the proxy's satisfying the Production Requirements.  Trip Winner must execute and return all required documentation within five (5) days of Trip Winner's receipt (or such shorter period as Prize Provider's production exigencies may require).  Failure to respond and/or execute and return such documentation by the specified deadline(s) may result in forfeiture of the Trip Prize.  If Trip Winner elects to appoint a proxy, Trip Winner must do so on or before November 18, 2022.
    1. If Trip Winner appoints a proxy, the proxy must satisfy the Production Requirements in order to participate in the Trip Prize and/or participate in the broadcast of the Program.  In the event that Trip Winner's designated proxy does not satisfy the Production Requirements, Prize Provider reserves the right, in its sole discretion, either to (i) allow Trip Winner to appoint another proxy to participate in the Trip Prize and/or appear in the Program in Trip Winner's place (subject to Prize Provider's production schedule and deadlines and satisfying the Production Requirements); or (ii) appoint another proxy (selected by Prize Provider) to appear in the Program in Trip Winner's (or proxy's) place. 
    2. If Trip Winner appoints a proxy (or has a proxy appointed), Trip Winner will still remain eligible to win the $1 Million Prize.  Trip Winner may only transfer the Trip Prize (excluding eligibility for the $1 Million Prize drawing) in its entirety one (1) time to a proxy.
    3. Prize Provider reserves the right to appoint a proxy to appear and participate in the broadcast of the Program for Trip Winner for any reason as it may determine in its sole discretion.  The appointment of any proxy shall not affect Trip Winner's eligibility for the $1 Million Prize or receipt of the Trip Prize.
  12. Guest must also execute all releases and forms required by Prize Provider and comply with all applicable federal, state, and local government and/or agency laws, rules, orders, and regulations as well as Prize Provider's rules, regulations, and/or safety guidelines.
  13. Trip Winner and Guest must also comply with all of the rules and regulations of the venues where the Events are held. Trip Winner acknowledges that if Trip Winner and/or Guest behaves in a disorderly or disruptive manner or with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten, or harass any other person at any Event, Trip Winner and/or Guest may be removed from the venue or denied entry (as determined by Prize Provider or its designee(s) in their sole and absolute discretion). By accepting any ticketed portion of the Trip Prize, Trip Winner agrees to abide by any terms, conditions, and restrictions provided by the ticket.  Lost, mutilated, or stolen tickets, vouchers, certificates, or pre-paid gift cards will not be replaced.
  14. No prize element substitution, cash substitution, assignment, or transfer of the Trip Prize or any elements thereof is permitted.  Any unused elements of the Trip Prize will be forfeited, will not be redeemable for cash, and may not reduce the prize value awarded for tax purposes.  Notwithstanding the foregoing:
    1. If Trip Winner misses Trip Winner's flight for any reason, reasonable efforts will be used to reschedule the flight at Trip Winner's expense.  If the flight is not able to be rescheduled in a reasonable time for Trip Winner's participation in the Events, (i) Trip Winner shall forfeit and not participate in the travel portion of the Trip Prize, including the Events; (ii) Trip Winner will still receive the One Thousand Dollars ($1,000) of spending money portion of the Trip Prize and the two (2) Gift Bags (less any tax withholdings and any outstanding debt setoff, if applicable); and (iii) Trip Winner will remain eligible for the $1 Million Prize drawing.
    2. If Trip Winner is unable to travel in connection with the Trip Prize for any reason after tickets have been booked, (i) Trip Winner shall forfeit and not participate in the travel portion of the Trip Prize, including the Events; (ii) Trip Winner will still receive the One Thousand Dollars ($1,000) of spending money portion of the Trip Prize and the two (2) Gift Bags (less any tax withholdings and any outstanding debt setoff, if applicable); and (iii) Trip Winner will remain eligible for the $1 Million Prize drawing.
    3. If Trip Winner fails to attend the Event at which the $1 Million Prize drawing occurs, Trip Winner will remain eligible for the $1 Million Prize drawing. 
  15. In any of the foregoing events, a proxy may be appointed to accept the $1 Million Prize on Trip Winner's behalf at the time of the drawing; however, in such event, Trip Winner will still receive the $1 Million Prize (less any tax withholdings and outstanding debt setoff, if applicable).
  16. Trip Winners who do not elect to take a guest, or whose guest, for any reason, does not actually take the trip, are still subject to the full amount of any taxes due on the total value of the Trip Prize. 
  17. Failure to respond and/or execute and return required releases, forms, and other documentation and/or failure to collect, properly claim, respond, and/or cooperate in the acceptance, receipt, delivery, and/or fulfillment of any element of the Trip Prize may result in forfeiture of the Trip Prize or the applicable element thereof, as Prize Provider may determine in its sole discretion.  If forfeited for any reason, Trip Winner will not receive any other prize substitution or compensation of any kind, and Prize Provider may award the Trip Prize to an alternate recipient as it may determine in its sole discretion.  If the Trip Prize cannot be fulfilled due to any federal, state, and/or local government and/or agency, network, or Prize Provider restrictions, regulations, guidelines, or risk assessments, Prize Provider reserves the right, in its sole and complete discretion, to substitute an alternate or substitute prize of reasonably comparable value as determined by Prize Provider in its sole discretion. 
  18. PROMOTION PARTIES ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE, IN ANY WAY, FOR ANY PERSONAL INJURIES, DEATH, PROPERTY DAMAGE, OR OTHER DAMAGES OR EXPENSES RESULTING FROM OR ARISING OUT OF ANY ACCEPTANCE, FULFILLMENT, LOSS, USE, OR MISUSE OF THE TRIP PRIZE, ANY ELEMENT THEREOF, AND/OR THE $1 MILLION PRIZE.  PROMOTION PARTIES MAKE NO, AND ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE IN ANY MANNER FOR ANY, WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS, OR GUARANTEES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN FACT OR LAW, RELATING TO ANY ELEMENTS OF THE TRIP PRIZE, REGARDING THE USE, VALUE, OR ENJOYMENT OF ANY ELEMENTS OF THE TRIP PRIZE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ITS QUALITY, MERCHANTABILITY, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ALL SUCH WARRANTIES ARE HEREBY DISCLAIMED.
