2. Each random draw will take place either on the day immediately following the named draw date or at a date immediately following this one in the event that the day following is not a working day. For example, “Monday’s draw” will ordinarily take place on the Tuesday and “Friday’s draw” will ordinarily take place on the Monday providing that such date is a working day. Gorilla do reserve the right to bring a draw date forward but only when this will not cause any detriment to Entrants.

5. Should there be no eligible Entrants for any particular draw then all eligible Entrants from all previous draws, who have not yet won a prize, will have their Tickets entered into the draw for that day. For example, if there are no new sign ups eligible for the Tuesday 10 December 2019 draw, then all Tickets which did not win a prize from Monday 2 December 2019 until Monday 9 December 2019. There is no limit on the number of draw’s that a Ticket can be entered in this way however once an Entrant wins a prize they are no longer eligible for their Ticket to be entered in any future draw.
6. There is no obligation on Gorilla to publicly reveal occasions in which clauses E4 or E5 have been triggered.
7. Gorilla reserves its right but is not obligated to publicise the random draw including transmitting the same on Social media. Entrants are reminded that should the same be published then the winner’s name (but no other details) will be announced.
