How to Play – Online Game: After completing the online registration page (first time visitors) or logging in with your registered email address (for return visitors), visit the game play page on the contest website. The game play page will display three (3) images of Founders beer cans. To determine if you are a potential prize winner, use the bottle cap icon to scratch the label on any one of the available Founders beer can images on the game play page (you must scratch a beer can image that you have not already previously scratched that day).

After scratching a non-winning Founders beer can image, participants shall have the opportunity to answer a Founders Trivia question, in order to play again and scratch any remaining unscratched Founders beer can images on their game play page for that day. Participants may play again regardless if they have correctly or incorrectly answered the Founders trivia question, provided they have any remaining unscratched beer can images on their game play page.

Eligible participants will have the opportunity to scratch each of the three (3) beer can images on their game play page for that day. After scratching all three (3) Founders beer can images, their contest attempt is completed for that day. Participants may not re-attempt to scratch previously scratched images that have already previously been attempted that day. Participants may return to the contest website to play the online game up to one time per day. Each 'day' shall be defined as occurring between 12:00:00am ET to 11:59:59pm ET, and the Contest Administrator's time clock shall be the sole determinant of the eligible time period.

After scratching a Founders beer can image on the game play screen, the website will determine if the participant is a potential prize winner, and the participant shall receive an online message verifying if they are a potential winner, or if they have scratched a non-winning image. If the participant scratched a winning beer can image and is determined as a potential prize winner, the participant will receive a winner confirmation message, and an associated unique prize claim code on their results page. If the participant does not scratch a winning beer can image, receives the non-winning results message, or has not received a valid unique prize claim code for any reason, then that participant will not be a prize winner for that game play attempt. (Note: residents of New Jersey shall not receive an online winner confirmation message, and shall receive an entry into the random chance prize drawing for each daily game play participation attempt per below.)

Potential prize winners and their associated prize award will be randomly determined and assigned by Sponsor throughout the Sweepstakes Period. A maximum total of two hundred fifty one (251) winners will be randomly determined during the Sweepstakes period, based upon randomly selected and predetermined winning dates and times. The first eligible participant who scratches the designated winning Founders beer can image at or following a scheduled winning date and time, shall receive a winning prize message, and shall be eligible to claim the associated prize award for that attempt as solely designated and determined by Sponsor (see below). At the conclusion of the Sweepstakes Period, on or about 6/17/19, a random drawing shall be held from among all eligible entries/participation received from residents of New Jersey to award a maximum total of five (5) prize awards. All prize awards shall be randomly determined and assigned from the available merchandise prize awards as outlined below.

Claiming a prize award: Eligible contestants receiving an online winner confirmation message, must print or record their unique prize claim code, and must follow the online instructions provided. All eligible prize winners will receive a prize claim form including their designated prize award via email within 2 – 4 weeks from their online notification of a winning attempt or determination of being a prize winner.
