Decisions of Contest Administrator in the selection and designation of eligible contestants and participation in the contest are final.

NOTE:  NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.  Purchase of admission or entry ticket is not required to participate.  Eligible contestants without an admission ticket may visit main entrance, and request to visit the contest area to submit their guess per the requirements below.

How to Play:  The predetermined winning (5) digit number for this contest will be randomly pre-selected by an independent promotions company (Million Dollar Media, LLC) and placed in a sealed security envelope.  The winning number will be programmed into the key pad and locking mechanism of the “bank vault” that will be used for all contest attempts.  Each eligible contestant will each be given one opportunity to attempt the contest.

In order to be a valid attempt, each eligible contestant must complete the following in the presence of the contest administrator:

1. Print and sign their full name, along with their (5) digit number guess on the first unoccupied line of the provided registration sign-in binder.

2. After completing the registration binder, the contestant must enter their (5) digit number guess exactly as recorded on the registration form into the digital key pad on the bank vault, followed by the * key on the key pad.  (Example – if the contestant’s number guess is recorded as 1-2-3-4-5 on the registration form, then they must enter 1-2-3-4-5-* on the bank vault key pad.  The *-key acts as an ‘enter’ button.)

Contestants are solely responsible for correctly entering their (5) digit number guess into the key pad exactly as recorded in the registration binder.  No prize will be awarded for any attempt that is incorrectly entered into the key pad.  Any attempt initiated without the presence of the contest administrator will be void.

Claiming the Bank Vault Contest Grand Prize: In order to claim the Bank Vault contest grand prize, an eligible contestant must record the winning (5) digit number (as contained in the sealed security envelope) in the registration binder, then unlock and open the bank vault only be means of entering that winning number into the keypad.

1. The act of opening the bank vault door does not constitute a winning attempt.  The prize will not be awarded as a result of opening the bank vault door or lock due to tampering, malfunction, damage, physical force or any means other than by entering the winning number into the key pad.

2. The (5) digit number recorded by the contestant in the official registration binder and entered by that contestant into the key pad on the bank vault must exactly match the predetermined winning (5) digit number that was randomly pre-selected for this Contest, and that is contained in the sealed security envelope.  The grand prize will not be awarded as a result of any of the following reasons including, but not limited to:

a. Any number recorded by the contestant on the registration form and entered into the digital key pad that does not match the predetermined winning number contained in the sealed security envelope;

b. Any tampering, malfunction, damage, or use of physical force that causes the bank vault to unlock or open;

c. A contestant who records the winning number on the registration form, but fails to correctly enter that number into the key pad.

A maximum of one (1) grand prize will be awarded to the first contestant who successfully completes the contest requirements.  The contest is immediately concluded following the first successful attempt, regardless of the number of completed attempts – and no additional contestants will be allowed to participate.  In the event there is no grand prize winning attempt, then the grand prize will not be awarded.
