Just some questions I'm sure you'll be asked. ;)

 

 

Midnight for what timezone?

 

What are the prizes?

 

If the 1st place winnder does not claim the prize, does the 2nd place winner get that or is a new 1st place winner drawn? If so, does this mean all prizes must be claimed before they are shipped out?

 

Who created the contest?

I'm a little confused... I already passed the 100k mark BEFORE the contest started... Does that mean I need to reach 250K to get a ticket? :huh:

you know it would probably be best to just start over. it would allow you to get more tickets. i mean if im lucky i will get 2 but if i started over i might get 4-5. however i think this would be cheating and a lack of integrity so i won't do it. i just thought of it so i decided to post it.
