How to Enter. There are two ways to enter during the Entry Period:    

·       Entry with Purchase Via App: First, download or open the Jackpocket mobile application (the “App”) and navigate to the Giveaway Page in the App; second, tap ‘Activate’ for this Sweepstakes; and third, place an official state lottery ticket order on the App from the state lottery where you are physically located in one of the Participating Jurisdictions. Every $1.00 spent on such ticket orders in the same account during the Entry Period after this Sweepstakes has been activated in that account is equal to one (1) entry in this Sweepstakes without need to activate again. Tapping ‘Activate’ does not provide a discount to purchase and is used only to trigger and keep track of entries. For new users, placing an order will require downloading the App, opening and registering an account (“Account”), and funding the Account prior to placing the order. All use of the App is subject to its general terms and conditions at jackpocket.com/tos. Lottery ticket orders made using promotional credits and/or promotional funds will not provide any entries in the Sweepstakes for the amounts of such promotional credits and/or promotional funds. 

In order to enter with purchase via the App, you must have the following versions of iOS or Android, as applicable, installed:

Jackpocket Android Version 2.13.7 or higher
Jackpocket iOS Version 2.13.8 or higher   

·       Free Entry via Website: You may also enter for free, without any purchase, by doing the following (the “Free Entry”): First, download the App and open and register an Account, which is free to do; and second, after creating your Account, during the Entry Period, go to https://jackpocket.typeform.com/to/V5GwubNb (the “Site”), and complete the Typeform located there with the following information: full name, phone number, mailing address and the email address you used to register your Jackpocket Account. Each time you properly complete and submit the Typeform on the Site, you receive ten (10) entries, which is equal or greater than the average number of dollars currently spent per day by users of the App to purchase state lottery tickets. IMPORTANT: The email address that you enter in the Typeform MUST match the email address that you used to register your Jackpocket Account. If the email addresses do not match, then you will not receive any entries for the Typeform on which the email addresses did not match.

Drawing.  Winner will be selected in a random drawing from among all eligible entries collected during the Entry Period, taking place on or about five (5) days after the end of the Entry Period. The drawing will be conducted by Sponsor, whose decisions and interpretations on all matters relating to the Sweepstakes and these Official Rules are final and binding in all respects.
