Contest Results: For Contest results and/or a copy of these Official Rules, send a hand-printed, self-addressed, stamped envelope to Resort Collection Win A Panama City Beach Vacation For Life Contest, 11212 Front Beach Rd.

[1]           The value of the Grand Cash Price is the amount thereof, $10,000.  The value of the Grand Accommodations Prize depends on how long the Grand Accommodations Prize Winner survives after Contest conclusion, how often and in which years he/she exercises the Grand Accommodations Prize, and the discount rate to be applied to the value in future years to arrive at a net present value. Using the current retail value of a 7-night stay in one of the Sponsor’s owned or managed Panama City Beach resorts or hotels, and assuming 25 years of claims in alternating years 1 through 49 beginning at Contest conclusion yields an approximate retail value of the Grand Accommodations Prize of $60,000. Because the cost to the Sponsor is not the same as the retail value, the net present value of the cost to the Sponsor, again assuming 25 years of claims in alternating years 1 through 49 beginning at Contest conclusion yields an approximate cost to Sponsor of the Grand Accommodations Prize of $28,250.

[2]           The approximate cost to Sponsor of each Interim Prize is $900.
