7.5 The prizes are not negotiable or transferable.
8.1 The winner of each prize will be drawn at random during the first two weeks of each month following the Closing Date for that draw (the “Winning Draw”). Reserve winners will be drawn at the same time to allow for the possibility that a prize may go unclaimed and needs to be redrawn.

To comply with this obligation, we will publish the surname and county of major prize-winners on our website extra.utilita.co.uk/jackpot within 10 days of the Winning Draw (the "Announcement Date").
