Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Grand Prize winner acknowledges that the Event has no monetary value, and in the event that the Event is delayed, canceled or postponed for any reason, and/or the Grand Prize winner and/or guest do not attend or participate in the Event for any reason, such portion of the Grand Prize shall be forfeited and no substitution or additional compensation shall be provided. Any portion of the Grand Prize not accepted by the winner will be forfeited. If the Grand Prize is forfeited in its entirety, and there is sufficient time to determine, notify and verify an alternate winner, the Grand Prize may be awarded to an alternate Winner.
A potential winner is not a recipient of a Prize until he/she has been verified as a winner by FanDuel. Upon finalizing all Grand Prize arrangements for winner and his/her guest, FanDuel will be deemed to have awarded the Grand Prize to the winner, and winner assumes full responsibility for the Grand Prize. If for any reason whatsoever, winner is unable to utilize any services or portions of the Grand Prize after all arrangements have been made and paid, FanDuel shall have no further obligation to him/her. Any details related to the Grand Prize not specified herein shall be determined by FanDuel in its sole discretion.
