Questions about twitter contests and how do they work

Im kind of new to twitter and I have some questions. Lets say ea has a contest where you tweet something to win something. Do you have to tweet in these contests on your own timeline or reply to their tweet via the reply command? Meaning can you just press write and mention @ea vs replying and having it done automatically or does it even matter? And lets say you win, do they tweet you the promo codes or message them to you privately? Is there a way for them to even tweet them to your tweeter or timeline only without others stealing the codes or seeimg it on the mainea twitter timeline?

You don't need to use the reply command, just write and mention @ea. They may privately tweet you the promo code, or ask for email, etc.
