It took me so long to figure out the rules that I figure this must have really good odds for winning. You can play both by getting game piece on the product or by mail, or by playing online There are two sets of prizes for each portion of the game. The total prizes to be won is over 10,000. The odds of winning through the game pieces/mail is much better than online but it will cost you 88 cent in stamps to request one game piece. It’s probably cheaper to buy the food product. That way you have food to show for your money.
