Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.

2. Contest Period – The Contest begins at 4:00 PM Central Time (“CT”) and ends at 6:00 PM CT on Saturday, March 14, 2020 (the “Contest Period”).

How to Play – To enter, visit on of the following Participating Locations in Chicago during the Contest Period: Downing’s located at 431 S Milwaukee Ave, Libertyville, IL, Island Tap located at 112 E Cook Ave, Libertyville, IL , Morgan’s Bar & Grill located at 112 E Cook Ave, Libertyville, IL, Timothy O’Toole’s located at 412 N Milwaukee Ave, Libertyville, IL and Tommy’s Pizza & Sport Bar located at 137 Lake St, Libertyville, IL (collectively, “Participating Locations”). Once you arrive at a Participating Location during the Contest Period, look for the WDRV Drive table/booth at the Participating Location and ask to participate in the Contest by picking up one (1) FREE specially-marked playing card. Participants can go to each of the five (5) Participating Locations to pick up one (1) specially-marked FREE playing card per Participating Location. PLEASE NOTE: a participant may obtain ALL five (5) specially-marked FREE playing cards from a single Participating Location if he/she wishes to do so, upon request. Each Participating Location will have ONLY 12 decks of cards that are specially-marked by Sponsor. Cards are only available while supplies last, per Participating Location, and in order to be eligible to win, the cards must be the specially-marked cards obtained at each Participating Location.

Once a participant has obtained five (5) FREE playing cards, he/she may give their cards to any other eligible participant, or trade his/her cards with any other eligible participant, as many times as the participant wishes to do so during the Contest Period. To be deemed a winner in this Contest, the participant at each Participating Location who turns in the “best” poker hand (as set forth in Official Rule #4 below) AND that hand must also spell out the word “DRIVE” on the back, no later than 6:00 PM CT on March 14, 2020 at the WDRV booth/table will be deemed the Grand Prize winner of that Participating Location. Any hand submitted that does NOT also spell out the word “DRIVE” on the back will not be deemed a winner. There will be one (1) winner per Participating Location, for a total of five (5) Grand Prize winners. Each participant may only submit one (1) “best” poker hand during the entire Contest Period. Any person submitting more than one (1) “best” poker hand may be disqualified at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid or misdirected entries, which may be disqualified at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Any attempt by any participant to enter using multiple/different identities, or submitting his/her “best” hand at multiple Participating Locations, tamper with the contest in any manner, or use any other methods not specifically allowed per these Official Rules may be disqualified from winning any prize, at the sole discretion of Sponsor.

4. Poker Hands/How the Winners are Determined: Hands will be ranked from highest suit to lowest;

Spades beats Hearts beats Diamonds beats Clubs;
Ace is the highest card; two is the lowest card. (a key will be available on display at WDRV table/booth at each Participating Location for reference)

Poker hands in the following order from “best” poker hand to worst poker hand:

Five of a Kind (highest rank or number wins – “best” hand);
Royal Straight Flush (10, J, Q, K, A, all one suit);
Straight Flush (5 cards in numerical order, all in one suit; ranking between straights is determined by the value of the high end of the straight);
Four of a Kind (highest rank or number wins);
Full House (2 of a kind and 3 of a kind; ties on a full house are broken by the three of a kind);
Flush (5 cards of one suit, no numerical order; high card determines the winner);
Straight (5 cards in numerical order, any suit; straight cannot wrap);
Three of a Kind
Two pair
One pair

In addition to holding the “best” poker hand, the cards MUST spell out the entire word “DRIVE,” but the word does NOT have to be in order (i.e., the cards just have to obtain the letters “D” “R” “I” “V” and “E” on the back). The participant handing in the “best” 5-card poker hand that also contains the letters in the word “DRIVE” at each Participating Location, as determined by the Sponsor’s representative in his or her sole discretion, will be named the Grand Prize winner for that Participating Location. Grand Prize winners will be announced at each Participating Location at approximately 6:00 pm CT, upon confirmation of participant’s eligibility.

In the event of a tie of 2 or more participants’ “best” 5-card poker hand at a particular Participating Location, a Sponsor representative will allow the tying participants to draw one (1) card from a full deck. The participant who draws the highest card (Ace is high) will be the Grand Prize Winner among the tying participants at that particular Participating Location. Odds of winning a Grand Prize depend on the number of eligible participants participating at each Participating Location and the ability for each participant to obtain the cards they need.

5. Prizes and Approximate Retail Values (“ARV’s”) – Five (5) Grand Prizes (one (1) per Participating Location) – $100 each in the form of a VISA Gift Card. ARV: $100.00 each. The total ARV for all Prizes is $500.00.

Winners must meet the eligibility requirements as set forth in Paragraph 1 of these Official Rules. Winners are responsible for paying all applicable income taxes associated with accepting the Prize. Winners may be required to sign liability and/or publicity release (“Prize Release”) prior to issuance of a prize, at Sponsor’s sole discretion. A 1099 form may be submitted to all appropriate taxing authorities, and by signing a Prize Release, the winner accepts the Prize, and even if the winner does not use the Prize, he/she will be responsible for the applicable taxes. Sponsor may substitute any prize, or portion thereof, for one of equal or greater value for any or no reason at Sponsor’s sole discretion.

6. Claiming the Prize – The winner will claim his/her Grand Prize in person at the Participating Location where and when they are deemed that Participating Location’s Grand Prize winner.
