  • If your NBA Team’s home game is not played (for any reason) during the Entry Period in which it was scheduled AND your NBA Team DOES play another game during that Entry Period, any Code you entered during that Entry Period will follow the original rule that “If your NBA Team wins one or more home games corresponding to the Entry Period in which your Code was entered, you will receive one (1) entry for each Code entered during that Entry Period into the corresponding random drawing for a chance to win a prize in the National Promotion Prize Pool.
