1) Promotion Code Uber Trip: During the Sweepstakes Period, complete one (1) Uber trip via the Uber app to any eligible MGM Resorts International property in Las Vegas, NV, originating from within Uber’s Las Vegas service market, using the Promotion Code, as defined herein, to automatically receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes. The promotion code to be used is UBERTOMGM (“Promotion Code”). The Promotion Code is available while supplies last. Limit four (4) Uber Trips per person using the Promotion Code during the Sweepstakes Period. To be eligible for a given prize, riders must request an eligible Uber trip using the Promotion Code during the applicable Entry Period.

To be eligible for a given prize, your email entry must be received by Sponsor during the applicable Entry Period.
Limit of one (1) entry per person, per email address and/or account per Sweepstakes Period, regardless of method of entry. Entries received in excess of this stated limitation will be void.
All entries must be received by no later than the end of the Sweepstakes Period, regardless of method of entry. When submitting an entry, Entrant is required to provide complete and truthful information. Entries that are incomplete, illegible, corrupted, false, lost, late or misdirected, deceptive or otherwise not in compliance with the Official Rules may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes at Uber’s sole and absolute discretion. Entries submitted by persons who do not meet the eligibility requirements (including all requirements with respect to age, residence, and receipt of the Sweepstakes email from Uber) are void. The use of any scripts, computer programs, robotic repetitive, macro, automatic, programmed or similar automated entry methods or agents to submit entries will void all entries submitted by that person or that person’s agents. Uber will disqualify any entry from individuals who do not meet the eligibility requirements. All entries submitted in compliance with these Official Rules and not disqualified or void are considered “Eligible Entries.” All entries are the property of Uber and will not be acknowledged or returned.

Winning the prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth in these Official Rules.
4. Winner Selection and Notification: At the end of each Entry Period, one (1) potential winner will be selected in a random drawing by Uber from all Eligible Entries during the applicable Entry Period. Each potential winner will be notified by phone or email (at the phone number or email provided with the entry or associated with each potential winner’s Uber account), and will be required to confirm his/her email address and/or phone number. Details will follow via email. Odds of winning a particular prize depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the applicable Entry Period.
Uber shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by a potential winner for any reason. If a potential winner cannot be reached after a reasonable effort has been exerted and/or fails to respond to confirm his/her email address within twenty-four (24) hours (or such other time specified by Uber) from when the initial notification email is sent, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner forfeits the prize, and an alternate potential winner will be selected. Uber, in its sole discretion and time permitting, will attempt to contact up to three (3) potential winners of each prize in accordance with the above procedure, after which the prize in question may go unawarded if it remains unclaimed. If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the prize for any reason prior to award, such potential prize winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential winner may be selected. The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.
