Odds of winning

The odds of winning will depend on the number of valid bug/regressions reports received by Unity during the Sweepstakes Period.


Each prize is a voucher for $100 in Asset Store credit (one maximum per individual). Unity will distribute 100 vouchers total.

There will be no substitutions or cash redemptions, provided that Unity reserves the right to substitute a prize in whole or in part for a prize of equal or greater value in the event that any component of the original prize is unavailable for any reason. Prizes may not be sold, bartered or transferred. Prizes do not include any additional expenses, including but not limited to federal, state, provincial and local sales or other taxes and surcharges, which are the responsibility of each winner. The approximate retail value of the prizes represents Unity’s good faith determination. That determination is final and binding and cannot be appealed. If the actual value of the prize turns out to be less than the stated approximate retail value, the difference will not be awarded in cash.

Payments of all federal, state and local taxes related to the award of a prize are solely the responsibility of the winner of the prize. The winner will be required to complete and submit an IRS Form W-9 with the winner’s full Social Security Number or the equivalent for receipt of any prize valued at US$600 or more or for any prizes awarded by Unity in a calendar year with an aggregate value of $600 or more, and such winnings will be reported to the IRS.  Failure to submit a complete W-9 or equivalent will result in forfeiture of the prize.
