4. HOW TO ENTER.
There are three (3) ways to enter (each occurrence an “Entry”):
4.1. DEBIT CARD USE: Entrants making a purchase with their Mythia Mastercard® Debit Card (“Card”) issued by Piermont Bank, Member FDIC, (the “Issuing Bank”) and marketed by the Sponsor receive one (1) Entry into the Sweepstakes in the form of a Reward Box for each purchase. The size of the reward box is determined by the size of the transaction:
The Sweepstakes Mechanics automatically award the Reward Boxes within a reasonable time after each purchase. The Entrant can view and open the Reward Box on the Website and in the Mythia App by accessing their account. Eligible Cards can be applied for via the Mythia App. Mythia’s terms and conditions apply.
4.2. ACCOUNT BALANCE: For each fifty U.S. dollars (US $50) Entrants deposit into their Issuing Bank-established deposit account associated with their Card (“Deposit Account”), exceeding the total of all withdrawals made from such Deposit Account (each an “Eligible Deposit”), Entrants receive one (1) Entry into the Sweepstakes in the form of a Small Reward Box. The Sweepstakes Mechanics automatically award the Reward Boxes within a reasonable time after such Eligible Deposit. Deposit Accounts can be applied for via the Mythia App. Mythia’s terms and conditions apply. To clarify, in order for a deposit to be considered an Eligible Deposit, such deposit must exceed any withdrawal amount from the Deposit Account by $50 in order to qualify as an Entry. For example, if a user withdraws $50, they would need to deposit $100 to qualify for their next Small Reward Box.
4.3. MAIL-IN: Entrants can request to enter the Sweepstakes by sending a legibly handwritten letter, including the Entrant’s handwritten complete name, mailing address, email address, phone number and date of birth together with a legibly handwritten, self- addressed, and stamped envelope with sufficient postage (the “Mail-In-Request’) to the following address: Mythia Inc, 584 Castro Street #3054, San Francisco, CA, 94114. Mail- In -Requests must contain all entry fields outlined above; otherwise, they are void and will not be eligible to win. Each Mail-In-Request must be postmarked no sooner than thebeginning of the initial Sweepstakes Period and no later than the end of the last Sweepstakes Period as announced on the Website and must be received within 14 calendar days of the end of the last Sweepstakes Period. Requests that are sent in business reply envelopes, that utilize address labels or stickers (for any address), that are photocopied, hand-stamped, computer-generated or otherwise mechanically or digitally produced or reproduced, that are not mailed in separate outer stamped mailing envelopes, or that otherwise fail to comply with the Official Rules, will NOT be honored, acknowledged or returned, and the persons submitting such requests will forfeit any corresponding postage and unused envelopes.
Upon receipt of an eligible Mail-In-Request, Sponsor will process such request as soon as reasonably possible and create a Mythia account within the Sweepstakes Mechanics for the Entrant, unless the Entrant already has such an account. For each Mail-In- Request, Entrant will then receive one (1) Entry into the Sweepstakes in the form of a Reward Box in their account for the then current Sweepstakes Period which will automatically be opened by the Sweepstakes Mechanics to reveal the prizes therein. The entrant will receive a return envelope, containing a confirmation of Entry, as well as their account’s email address, which can be used to log into their Mythia account. The Entrant can access their account and view their prizes on the Website and in the Mythia App or by contacting the Sponsor by email at email@example.com.
Mythia Inc.’s Issuing Bank are not responsible for any Entry that is lost, late, illegible, stolen, mutilated, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, postage-due, misdirected or undeliverable, whether due to system errors, omissions, interruption, deletions, defects, delay in operations or transmissions, theft or destruction or failures, faulty transmissions or other telecommunications malfunctions, human error, entries not received resulting from any hardware or software failures of any kind, lost or unavailable network connections, failed, incomplete or garbled computer or telephone transmissions, typographical or system errors and failures, faulty transmissions, technical malfunctions, or otherwise. Only fully completed entries are eligible. Proof of submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor.
5. DRAWING/ODDSOF REWARD BOXES.
Each time an Entry occurs, the size of a Reward Box is determined by a random number generator, unless the size of a Reward Box is pre-determined as set forth in these Official Rules. The odds of receiving a small Reward Box are 140 in 200, the odds of receiving a medium Reward Box are 45 in 200, and the odds or receiving a large Reward Box are 15 in 200.
When an Entrant opens a Reward Box, or a Reward Box resulting from a Mail-In- Request is awarded and automatically opened, a random number generator is used to determine what prize is received from that Reward Box. Each prize that is received is removed from the Prize Pool, until all prizes from such Prize Pool have been claimed. Once all prizes from a Prize Pool are claimed, the Prize Pool is reset. The Prize Pool and the odds of receiving each of the Prizes are set forth in Sections 6 and 7 of the Official Rules.
