Looking into the fine print, we thought it necessary to call out a couple of things that could trip you up. For starters, you should know that you can only win one Steam Deck per household, which is standard for this sort of stuff.
But one weird caveat in Valve’s official rules is that “your entry in the giveaway must have been made in good faith, as determined by Valve in its sole discretion.” We’re not exactly sure what that means, and it leaves the door wide open for interpretation on what’s considered “good faith,” as well as how the company goes about determining that. We imagine it’s covering the bases to deter cheating, duplicate entrants, or attempts to enter the giveaway from an ineligible region, so just enter the giveaway like normal to stay on the safe side.
Also, check your email as often and as soon as you can. If you’re a winner and you don’t claim your prize by December 16 (for digital entrants), Valve will select an alternative winner. Good luck!
