The promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Facebook.
Access the official mike’s® Hard Lemonade Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/mikeshardlemonade/ and follow the on-screen instructions.
First, comment on Sponsor’s Watermelon bottle post directly on the mike’s® Hard Lemonade Facebook page preferably with a watermelon emoji. You may include other emojis when commenting provided that Sponsor determines that such additional emojis are appropriate and in good taste. You will receive an automated message from the mike’s® Hard Lemonade Facebook page within the next few minutes.
Receipt of automated message does not constitute any representation of eligibility for the Giveaway nor is it otherwise binding upon Sponsor.
If comment is posted anywhere on Facebook OTHER THAN in response to Sponsor’s Watermelon bottle post on the mike’s® Hard Lemonade Facebook page, such comment will not be accepted.
Then, in response to the automated message, submit your guess as to the number of seeds in the image of Sponsor’s Watermelon bottle.
To be acceptable, your guess must be a whole number. Use of modifying or conditional language (such as, “about,” “approximately,” “around,” “up to,” or “no more than”) will result in automatic disqualification even if your guess is correct.
If guess is submitted anywhere on Facebook OTHER THAN in response to the automated message from the mike’s® Hard Lemonade Facebook page, such guess will not be accepted.
If and only if your guess is correct, will you be entered in the Giveaway. (Prior to the commencement of the Giveaway, Sponsor has determined the number of seeds in the image of Sponsor’s Watermelon bottle.)
Receipt of guess may be acknowledged (including via comment posted by Sponsor in response to same) but such acknowledgment does not constitute any representation of eligibility for the Giveaway nor is it otherwise binding upon Sponsor. For the avoidance of doubt, any such acknowledgment will NOT indicate whether (or not) a person’s guess was correct and/or whether (or not) he/she has been entered in the random drawing.
Additional Submission Guidelines: Should you choose to include content in addition to the watermelon emoji in your comment, your comment will not result in receipt of automated message (and you will not be able to make a guess as to the number of sees in the image of Sponsor’s Watermelon bottle) if such additional content is determined by Sponsor not to be in compliance with the following Content Restrictions.

But, Sponsor reserves the right to void all guesses (and disqualify participant from the Giveaway altogether as well as to prohibit such person from participating in future promotions offered by Sponsor) if Sponsor determines in its sole discretion that a given person has engaged in egregious, blatant or repeated violations of the preceding limit.
