Key Search Game: Help the BUTTERFINGER® Defense League find the key that unlocks the door through all 5 rounds until you find the secret room where the BUTTERFINGER® bars are stashed. Upon entering your Game Code, you will be presented with five (5) keys to play round ONE of the Key Search. Only one (1) key in each round will open the door. Select one key to see if you can open the door to move to the next round. If the door does not open with the key you have selected, the game is over and you are not a winner. If the door opens, you will move on to round TWO, and will be presented with ten (10) keys. Play continues as long as you select the correct key to open the door through round THREE (20 keys); FOUR (50 keys); and FIVE (100 keys). If you select the correct key to open the final door in round FIVE, you will be notified on-screen with "CONGRATULATIONS you are the potential winner," pending verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. If no participant correctly selects all five keys and successfully opens the door in round five, the One Million Dollars will not be awarded. If more than one entrant successfully selects all five keys and makes it past round five and is notified he/she is a potential winner, each verified winner will equally share the prize as specified below. Keys are randomized and shuffled after each player's selection and each time a new Game is started.
Instant Win Game: Upon completion of the Key Search portion of your game play and regardless of whether you open any doors, you will be prompted to play the Instant Win Game.
