2. How to Enter. To enter, go to, completely fill out the online registration form (the “Form”) during the Entry Period, and submit the Form.

3. Random Drawing and Prizes. One (1) Sweepstakes Prize winner will be randomly selected each time the Miami HEAT wins a game during the Entry Period AND scores one hundred (100) points or more in the same game. Each random drawing will occur after the conclusion of the relevant game, from among all eligible entries received during the Entry Period before the relevant random drawing. A prior winner in the Sweepstakes is ineligible to win a second Prize. Only one (1) Prize per person. The drawing(s) will be conducted by the Sponsor, whose decisions are final in all matters relating to the Sweepstakes. The Prize winner(s) will each be awarded a $1,500 Carnival Gift Card (the “Gift Card”) to be used towards the purchase of any Carnival Cruise (North American and European itineraries only), as well as onboard incidentals that are made available by Carnival Cruise Line for purchase with the Gift Card (each, a “Prize”). The total Approximate Retail Value (“ARV’) of each Prize is one thousand five hundred dollars ($1,500). Cost of the relevant cruise over $1,500 is the responsibility solely of the relevant Prize winner. All unspecified travel-related expenses are the responsibility solely of the relevant Prize winner. Travel to and from the port from which the cruise departs is not included within the Prize, and is the responsibility solely of the Prize winner(s). The Gift Card and/or any unused portion thereof has no cash value. There is no guaranteed availability on the exact sailing or travel dates and times requested by winner. Other limitations and restrictions may apply. Travel booked using the Gift Card must be booked through Carnival Cruise Line. The Gift Card is subject to the terms and conditions set forth in these Official Rules and those set forth and detailed in Carnival Cruise Line’s passenger Ticket Contract found here: Neither Carnival Cruise Line nor Sponsor will replace any lost, mutilated, or stolen Gift Card, tickets or travel vouchers, and neither is responsible if cruise is delayed or postponed for any reason. The Prize is non-transferable and no substitution will be made except as provided herein at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. The Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize for one of equal or greater value if the designated Prize or any portion thereof should become unavailable for any reason. Odds of winning the Prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Entry Period prior to the drawing(s). The Sweepstakes winner(s) will be notified by email or telephone. Each Prize winner will be required to respond to the phone call and/or email notification within forty-eight (48) hours indicating whether he/she can accept the Prize. The winner(s) may be required to complete, sign, and return an affidavit of eligibility, and/or a liability and publicity release, within seventy-two (72) hours of Prize notification. Any Prize notification or Prize returned to the Sponsor as undeliverable will result in disqualification. In the event of Prize winner non-responsiveness, forfeiture, or other disqualification, the Sponsor will only select an alternate winner once. In the event the Miami HEAT do not win a game and score one hundred (100) points or more in the same game during the Entry Period, Sponsor will not give away any Prize.
