Grand Prize Contest: In order for the grand prize to be awarded to an eligible contestant, the contestant must first print and sign their full name on the first unoccupied line of the provided official contestant registration form prior to their dice roll attempt.

The winning symbols for this contest are: S-U-P-E-R
Eligible dice roll attempt requirements
All dice roll attempts must occur in the presence of the contest administrator(s), and must be recorded on video tape in its entirety. Any dice roll attempt not in the presence of the contest administrator, or that is not videotaped for any reason will be disqualified and is not eligible for the grand prize;
Contestants will not be permitted to take any practice or warm-up tosses prior to their attempt. Once a die has been rolled, their attempt is considered to be started.
Each eligible contestant must roll all 5 dice all at one time. Contestants may not attempt to change the outcome of any rolled die, by hitting the die with a subsequent roll attempt;
All (5) dice must be rolled on each individual contest attempt. The winning outcome must occur during a single roll attempt – i.e. contestants may not combine sides during multiple roll attempts. Each roll is its own unique contest attempt and the (5) winning sides must all land face-up on a single roll.
Each die must be tossed in a completely random manner that does not allow the contestant to “set” or “slide” the dice, alter or influence the random outcome of the roll;
Each die must be rolled a minimum of 2-feet in distance from the contestant, in order to prevent the contestant from altering, affecting, influencing, or enhancing the random outcome of any roll. The contest administrator will designate the demarcation line that each die must cross during the roll;
All dice must come to rest lying flat;
All dice must land on and remain on the designated dice rolling surface;
No rolled die may come in contact with any person or object other than the designated rolling surfaces or walls.
If any die comes in contact with another person or object (other than the dice roll surface or designated walls or backstop) for any reason; or if any person or object in any way interferes, alters, changes, influences or affects the random outcome of the roll, then the entire attempt is disqualified and the contestant may not receive another attempt.
The following will result in the contestant being required to re-roll their entire dice roll attempt:
If any of the following outcomes occur, that dice roll attempt is disqualified and the contestant will be granted a maximum of one re-roll attempt (the contestant must re-roll all 5 dice):
If the contest administrator deems that any die has failed to cross the dice roll demarcation line;
If any die is leaning in any manner;
If any die leaves the designated dice roll playing surface;
If any contestant inadvertently drops a die as they are preparing to roll, and the dropped die does not meet the eligible dice roll requirements as stated in the contest rules.
In all circumstances, an eligible contestant may have a maximum of one re-roll attempt. In the event of a second ineligible dice roll, their entire dice roll attempt will be disqualified and the contestant will not be eligible for any prize claim regardless of the outcome of their roll.
