How ironic. You win a prize pack that's focus is to make you healthy, from the most unhealthy burger chain in the country.

So lets see... there are 24 hours in a day but you can only order the whopper between 10 AM - 12AM. So roughly 15 hours. 60 mins an hour = 9000 mins in 15 hours. 9000/15 = 600 chances to win a day. That seems like a lot but they don't say if there's only ONE WINNER AN HOUR. If that's the case, not many will win.
