3. Agreement to Official Rules
Participation in the Arcade Contest constitutes entrants full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor, which are final and binding. Winning a prize is contingent upon being compliant with these Official Rules and fulfilling all other requirements set forth herein.

Submissions will be accepted for the duration of the Contest using any of the following methods: "online via the contest page(s) only"
5. How to Enter
Method of entry for our Arcade Contests is to play any game(s) featured as "Prized Games" found in the Arcade section of our site; members finishing in First Place position upon completion of the contest(s) are declared the winners, unless otherwise stated in the contest listing.
Limit one (1) Prize per person (clan members excluded), per email address, and per household for the duration of the contest period. Entries received from any person, e-mail address, or household in excess of the stated limitation will be void. If a member does happen to win 2 or more prizes within the contest period, that member will choose the prize they prefer and the other(s) will be void and re-listed in a future contest
6. Prize Verification
On or about Nov 1-3 the Sponsor will verify all potential winners. The odds of winning a Prize depend on the total number of game plays and total number of games played. Winners are determined from High Scores and Leader Board information stored in our Database. The Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential winners via private message on or about Nov 1-3 2012, if the potential winner cannot be contacted within three (3) days after the date of the first attempt to contact him/her, the Sponsor may select an alternate potential winner in his/her place, or re-list the prize in a future Contest. If you've selected to NOT receive private messages from our site, then you won't receive your winning notifications either and could possibly forfeit your prize if we can't contact you through our private messaging system.
7. Winner Notification
The potential winners will be notified by private message within 3 days of contest completion. If a potential winner cannot be contacted or fails to reply to a contest notification message sent via the private messaging system of VETERANS-GAMING, or any failure to reply within the required time period, the potential winner(s) forfeit the prize(s) if they cannot be contacted. Potential winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements in the Contest Rules. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will re-list the applicable prize in an alternative contest. All remaining eligible site members are free to compete again for the re-listed prize. Alternate contests will be held indefinitely until all prizes are awarded. Prizes that require shipping will be fulfilled approximately 2-4 weeks after the conclusion of the Arcade Contest(s). Electronic prizes are normally delivered within 72 hours of contest completion. VETERANS-GAMING reserves the right and WILL NOT send any items (prizes) to foreign nations, or countries unfriendly to the United States or our Allies!
