Winning and Non-Winning Prize Certificates
The single finalist will be presented with 60 money bags, each containing a sealed contest envelope identical in shape, size and color with the exception of the number printed on the outside of each envelope to encompass the range from 1 to 60.
Each sealed contest envelope will contain one prize certificate. There will be one (1) Grand Prize winning prize certificate randomly seeded within the set of sealed contest envelopes. The winning prize certificate will be printed with the ($) or other predetermined text or symbol which clearly distinguishes it as a winning certificate. Each of the remaining (59) sealed envelopes will contain a non-winning prize certificate. Each of the non-winning prize certificates will be printed with “Sorry. Not a Grand Prize Winner” or other predetermined text or symbol which clearly distinguishes it as a non-winning certificate.
One Master Envelope will contain the corresponding number of the sealed contest envelope that contains the winning prize certificate. The Master Envelope must remain sealed. In the event of a winning attempt, the Master Envelope and each of the remaining (59) sealed contest envelopes must be returned to Million Dollar Media, LLC in their original sealed and unopened condition. If the Master Envelope or any of the remaining (59) contest envelopes are damaged, tampered with or opened under any circumstance, all prize claims for the contest attempt will be void.
The eligible contestant will select any one (1) of the 60 money bags, and remove the sealed contest envelope contained inside the bag. In the event that the money bag contains more than one contest envelope, the contestant must pick one of the envelopes as their selection. The contestant will then open their one selected contest envelope and reveal the enclosed prize certificate contained inside. The contestant must reveal the text or symbol printed on their selected prize certificate to the appointed contest administrator, who will confirm if the contestant has selected a money bag and prize envelope containing a “winning” or “non-winning” prize certificate. Any contestant who opens more than the designated number of sealed contest envelopes for any reason will be disqualified.
In the event that the one sealed contest envelope selected and opened by the eligible contestant contains the Grand Prize “winning” prize certificate, that contestant will be eligible for the grand prize, and the master envelope and all remaining sealed prize envelopes must not be opened. Opening the master envelope or any additional sealed prize envelopes will void any prize claim.

If the contestant opens any sealed contest envelope that contains a “non-winning” prize certificate, their contest attempt is over and there will be no further opportunity for a prize claim. The contestant will receive $1,000. The contest administrator may then open the master envelope and reveal the number on the sealed contest envelope that contained the winning prize certificate. The contest administrator may then open the corresponding sealed contest envelope to reveal the winning prize certificate.
