NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT NECESSARY TO ENTER OR TO WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCE OF WINNING. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED.
ELIGIBILITY: The Jackpocket Winner of the Year Contest (the “Contest”) is a contest of skill open to legal residents of the 50 United States and D.C., 18 years of age or older. Employees, officers, or directors of Jackpocket Inc. (“Sponsor”), or any of its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, or any advertising or promotion agencies involved in this Contest (collectively, the “Contest Entities”), as well as the immediate family (children, siblings, and parents) and household members of each such person (whether related or not), are not eligible to enter. Void where prohibited.
CONTEST PERIOD: The Contest begins on December 8, 2022, at 9:00:01 a.m. Pacific Time (“PT”), and ends on December 15, 2022, at 11:59:59 p.m. PT (the “Contest Period”). The Sponsor’s database computer is the official time-keeping device for the Contest.
HOW TO ENTER: There are two (2) ways to Enter during the Contest Period:
1. Log in to any of Instagram, Twitter, or TikTok (each, a “Social Media Platform”), follow @jackpocket, and post a video, photo(s) (with caption), or short story sharing your “most wonderful win of the year” (“Win”) with the hashtag #My2022WinContest and tag @jackpocket (“Post”). The Win can be any interpretation of winning and does not need to involve a lottery or other financial gain, but also can be in any other aspect of your life. The Win can be big or small, as long as it made you feel like a winner (the “Theme”).

b. If you choose Instagram, your Post can be a Feed post or Reel and then to complete your entry, you must also “like” the first announcement Jackpocket posts about the Contest on December 8, 2022. Alternatively, you can enter on Instagram by commenting your win with the hashtag #My2022WinContest under Jackpocket’s first announcement post on December 8, 2022 and “liking” the first announcement Jackpocket posts about the Contest on December 8, 2022.

All spoken or written content must be in English.
Any photo submission must include a written caption describing your Win. Omission of written content will mean the Submission cannot be judged as a potential winner.
All written content (story, caption, etc.) should be 250 words or less.
In addition, all Submissions must: (a) be the exclusive original work of the entrant; (b) be in keeping with the Sponsor’s image; (c) not defame or invade publicity rights or privacy of any person, living or deceased, or otherwise infringe upon the rights of any person or entity, including but not limited to copyright, trademark, privacy or publicity; (d) not contain any commercial/corporate advertising, including but not limited to corporate logos, brand names, and slogans other than the Sponsor’s; (e) not depict any conduct or content that is unsafe, immoral, obscene, or otherwise inappropriate; and (f) not have been submitted in any other Contest or won any prize.
Each entrant represents and warrants that he/she has obtained permission from any and all recognizable persons other than the entrant depicted in a Submission, that all such persons are 18 years of age or older and agrees, upon request, to furnish written proof of such permission. Failure to meet any of the requirements above, or to otherwise comply with these Official Rules, may result in disqualification. Sponsor reserves the right to delete or blur any inappropriate content from a Submission without disqualifying the entry where such change does not materially alter the submission and the entrant has otherwise attempted in good faith to comply with these Official Rules.
JUDGING/WINNER SELECTION: Judging: All eligible Submissions will be judged initially by a panel of judges using the following criteria: creativity and originality, best representation of the Theme, quality of spoken/written expression, and public appeal. For photo Submissions, judging will be based on the accompanying written caption/content. Judges’ decisions are final and binding on all matters relating to the Contest. At the close of the Contest Period, the judges will select a maximum of three (3) finalists based on the criteria specified above (“Finalists”). Fewer Finalists may be selected if an insufficient number of Submissions are received of adequate quality, as determined by the judges.
Public Voting: Submissions of the Finalists will be posted at each Social Media Platform as a pin on the top of each respective @jackpocket Social Media Platform page from approximately December 16, 2022 to December 18, 2022 (“Voting Period”), to allow the public the opportunity to cast a vote for their favorite by “liking” their favorite Finalist. Voting instructions will be available on the voting page. Limit one (1) vote per person per Social Media Platform. Use of script, macro, or any device to automate voting, hiring outsourced vote-farming services, paying for votes, or engaging in any other conduct deemed inappropriate, disruptive, or unsportsmanlike as determined by the Sponsor in its discretion is prohibited, and any entries or votes received through such means will be void. Any attempt by any voter or entrant to submit or solicit more than the stated number of votes by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, or any other method will void that person’s votes and entry (if any), and he/she may be disqualified from further voting or other participation in the Contest.
Winner Selection: At the close of the Voting Period, the judges will select the potential Contest winner based on the criteria specified above. Results of Public Voting may be considered by the judges, in their discretion, as one factor in assessing the public-appeal criterion, and do not directly determine the winner.
The potential Contest winner will be notified on or about December 19, 2022, via Direct Message on the relevant Social Media Platform or by email in the case of a VideoAsk Submission. No liability is assumed for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted, or not received by a potential winner for any reason not attributable to the Sponsor. If a potential winner does not respond within two (2) days after the first notification attempt, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. Each potential winner may be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and a Publicity Release (“Prize Claim Documents”). If any potential winner is deemed a minor in his/her place of residence, a parent or legal guardian must sign all required Prize Claim Documents.
PRIZE: One (1) Grand Prize is available: A $500 digital VISA gift card (“Prize”). The Prize is non-transferable. No cash equivalent or substitution of the Prize is offered, except at the sole discretion of the Sponsor. If the Prize becomes unavailable for reasons beyond the Sponsor’s control, the Sponsor may provide a prize of comparable or greater value. The winner is responsible for all federal, state, and/or local taxes that may be due as a result of accepting a Prize. The Prize may be delivered digitally to the winner. VISA is a registered trademark of VISA, Inc., which is not a sponsor of or affiliated in any way with this Contest.
