Sweepstakes Winners. Sponsor will select one hundred (100) winners by random drawing from all valid entries by July 12, 2011. No later than August 1, 2011, Sponsor will hold a random drawing for alternative entries received, using the same odds as applied for the Achievements based Sweepstakes drawing (determined by the number of Achievement entries). Sponsor will award prizes to the alternative entry winners, if any. Sponsor will contact each winner via email to the address registered to the winning Steam account. The decision of the Sponsor will be final and binding in all matters.

Sweepstakes Prizes. The Sweepstakes winners will each receive the top ten (10) games on their Steam Wishlist at the time of the drawing. Unreleased games will be delivered to the winner at the time of their release. Prize value is the purchase price of those games at the time of the drawing. Prizes are not assignable or transferable. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. The winner is solely responsible for any taxes applicable to the prizes.
