4. PRIZES. Each potential Contestant will each receive the opportunity to shoot a puck to win $444,444.00 during a Chicago Blackhawks regular-season home game designated by the Chicago Blackhawks; four (4) 100-level non-prime tickets to the home game at which the Contestant shoots the puck; and one (1) Chicago Blackhawks replica jersey.

The $444,444.00 will be paid, if shot is successful and if the Contestant complies with the Official Rules, via a twenty (20) year annuity.

5. CONDITIONS: The total number of Contestants will not exceed four (4) (one attempt per date). Contestants will not be permitted any practice, warm-up, or qualifying shots at any time after notification of participation in the Contest until the actual prize attempt, nor will any person be selected to participate on more than one occasion. The Contestant, using a National Hockey League regulation hockey stick, must strike one National Hockey League regulation hockey puck (or one of equivalent specifications) causing it to pass completely through the opening in the target template. From the moment control of the puck is released to the Contestant until the Contestant’s hockey stick last touches the puck, both the puck and the Contestant must remain at least ninety (90) feet from the opening in the target template. The Contestant will have only one attempt to successfully make the shot from behind the center-ice line (minimum of ninety (90) feet from the opening in the target template). An attempt has occurred when the Contestant’s hockey stick touches the puck, or when the Contestant or puck comes within ninety (90) feet of the opening in the target template. The opening in the target template will measure no more than 1.5 x 3.5 inches across, will be stationary, and will be firmly attached to a board or other solid structure (plywood, plexiglass, etc.) in such a manner that the hole remains immediately adjacent to the ice and directly in front of the goal. The Contestant must stand on the ice. The Contestant may not stand on any form of artificial surface (carpet, rubber flooring, etc.). Nothing may be done to the surface of the ice to enhance the chances of scoring a goal (grooving, brushing, etc.). No blocking or grooving of the ice will be permitted.
