As a result, the odds of an online listener becoming a qualifier may be diminished.
Odds of becoming a qualifier through the registration methods (Methods 2-5) depend upon the number of eligible entries received.
Odds of a Qualifier becoming the Grand Prize Winner depend upon the number of qualifiers who attend the giveaway event.
