    a) one (1) entry per Shareholder (“Standard Entry”); and
    b) if the Shareholder is ordering the Promotional Products for the first time after 28 February 2017 a further one (1) entry (“Bonus Entry”).
  4. The number of entries per Shareholder is determined by the number of Eligible Purchases made and whether or not the Shareholder is purchasing the Promotional Products for the first time after 28 February 2017. For example, the purchase of 4.5 tonnes of Ballance fertiliser during the Promotional Period (and invoiced and uplifted in the required time frame) would be eligible for a minimum of 4 Standard Entries and a maximum of 8 entries (comprising 4 Standard Entries and 4 Bonus Entries) into the Major Prize Draw.

  6. The five eligible entrants’ names drawn from the Draw will be deemed the Major Prize Winners (“the Winners”). No eligible entrant can win more than once and if their name is drawn more than once the second winning draw shall be repeated until a new winner is found.
  7. The Winners will be contacted using their details held on the Farmlands Shareholder database. Each Major Prize Draw prize consists of a trip for 2 to Fieldays, Mystery Creek (see details in clause 10. below) and, whilst there, participation in the “Find Your Fortune” experience (the “Game Show”) where each Winner has the chance to win $1million or win a prize of $5,000 cash or win 10 tonnes of Ballance fertiliser (up to a maximum value of $7,500). A Game Show will be staged for each of the 5 Winners at Fieldays, which takes place from 12-15 June 2019. Winners will be advised of the exact times, day and on-site location for their Game Show experiences and the events will be publicised at Fieldays and posted on the promotional website as soon as details have been confirmed.
  8. If a Winner or Winners cannot be contacted for any reason within 48 hours to allow the Promoter’s agents to confirm travel and related arrangements for the Winner(s) to get to Fieldays to participate in the Game Show, then that Winner(s) will be disqualified and replacement Winner(s) drawn on the same terms and conditions of the original Major Prize Draw.
  9. Should a Winner or Winners be contactable but unable to participate in their Game Show slot, then, depending upon the circumstances, the Promoter has sole discretion to either:
    a. permit that Winner(s) to appoint a proxy and furnish that proxy with written, witnessed draw instructions with which to represent them on the Game Show; or
    b. disqualify that particular Winner(s) and redraw a replacement winner.
  10. Each of the 5 Major Prize Draw prizes include return flights for 2 from the NZ airport closest to the Winners’ primary address to Auckland, 3 nights’ accommodation with breakfast daily, a pair of Fieldays 3-Day Passes and transfers between accommodation and Mystery Creek venue.

Each panel will contain one randomly hidden prize symbol. The quantity and prize symbols will be:
    a two only (2) “$1Million Cash Winner/Find Your Fortune” symbols;
    b. nine only (9) “10T of Ballance” symbols; and
    c. nine only (9) “$5000 cash prize” symbols.
  15. To play the Game Show, a Winner will select two (2) panel numbers in any order they choose. Each panel will be turned around to reveal a single prize symbol affixed to the back of it. The Game Show compere will be the only person authorised to flip the numbered panels around to reveal the hidden prize symbol. A tally of symbols will be kept. The panel number they select will reveal a prize symbol corresponding to one of the relevant prizes. Should a Winner select 2 identical matching prize symbols the Game Show concludes and the prize corresponding to the 2 identical matching prize symbols will be awarded to the Winner. To win the $1Million cash prize, the two $1Million Cash Winner/Find Your Fortune” symbols must be revealed on the first two panels selected.
    Should the Winner not select two (2) panels with identical matching prize symbols on the first two panels revealed, an additional one (1) panel will be selected and revealed for the chance to win Game Show Prize B or Game Show Prize C and this process will be repeated until two (2) identical matching prize symbols for Game Show Prize B or Game Show Prize C have been revealed.
