  5. To be eligible to enter, entrants must purchase the “Monopoly - The Block edition” board game from any participating retailer subject to stock availability. Inside each board game is an entry ticket with a unique entry code printed on it (“Code”). A ‘participating retailer’ is any authorised retailer that stocks the “Monopoly – The Block edition” board game as listed at www.9Now.com.au/theblock. Entrants are advised that they may be required to provide their receipt of purchase or gift receipt from a participating retailer to confirm their eligibility to win as per clause 7. The “Monopoly – The Block edition” board game must not be resold or offered for resale at a premium (including via online auction sites). If a board game is sold in breach of this condition, the Promoter may, in its absolute discretion, withdraw the corresponding entry ticket from this promotion and the person who has purchased the board game or otherwise bears that ticket will be ineligible to win the Prize.
  6. To enter, eligible entrants must, during the Promotional Period, visit www.9Now.com.au/theblock, locate the promotional entry form, complete all requested details including full name, contact number, a valid and current email address, residential address, and the Code, and submit the fully completed entry form.
  7. The Promoter reserves the right, at any time, to verify the validity of entries and entrants (including an entrant’s identity, age and place of residence) and reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual who the Promoter has reason to believe has breached any of these Terms and Conditions, tampered with the entry process or engaged in any unlawful or other improper misconduct calculated to jeopardise fair and proper conduct of the promotion. The Promoter may decide in its sole discretion which documents are considered suitable for establishing eligibility to enter or win. Errors and omissions may be accepted at the Promoter’s discretion. Failure by the Promoter to enforce any of its rights at any stage does not constitute a waiver of those rights. The Promoter’s legal rights to recover damages or other compensation from such an offender are reserved.
  8. Entrants may enter the promotion multiple times during the Promotion Period, provided that each entry code submitted is unique.
  9. Entrants must retain their original or a copy of their purchase receipt or gift receipt as proof of purchase. Failure to produce the proof of purchase for their entry when requested may, in the absolute discretion of the Promoter, result in invalidation of an entrant’s entry and forfeiture of any right to a prize. Purchase receipt or gift receipt must clearly specify the store or online vendor of purchase and that the purchase was made prior to the conclusion of the Promotional Period.
  10. If there is a dispute as to the identity of an entrant, the Promoter reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine the identity of the entrant.
