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. 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/gSL9wK6n (the “Site”), and complete the typeform located there with the following information: full name, 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, as of the start date and time of this Sweepstakes, 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. Upon successful completion of both of the steps noted hereunder, you do not need to fund your Jackpocket Account in order to enter the Sweepstakes during the Entry Period and registering for a Jackpocket Account is free.
Limitations on Entries. LIMIT OF ONE HUNDRED (100) ENTRIES PER PERSON PER DAY DURING THE ENTRY PERIOD, REGARDLESS OF METHOD OF ENTRY, INCLUDING ANY COMBINATION OF ENTRIES GENERATED BY EITHER OR BOTH OF THE METHODS DESCRIBED ABOVE.

Sponsor will not replace any lost or stolen Prizes or Prize components. Only the number of Prizes stated in these Official Rules are available to be won in the Sweepstakes. Taxes on Prizes are sole responsibility of confirmed First Prize Winner and Second Prize Winner (each, a “Winner” and, collectively, the “Winners”), as applicable. Sponsor shall not be held responsible for any delays in awarding the Prizes or any component thereof for any reason. Winner(s) acknowledge that upon acceptance of the Prize, Winner agrees the tickets awarded as the Prize are subject to the terms, conditions, and policies, including, but not limited to those relating to health and safety, applicable to the ticket and Sponsor has no liability to award an alternate component if such terms, conditions and policies are not met. Sponsor is not responsible for any damage, loss, or mutilation of event tickets awarded to Winner(s), or for any occurrences beyond its control. Entry into this Sweepstakes constitutes entrant’s agreement to be bound by the terms of these Official Rules and by the decisions of Sponsor, which are final and binding on all matters pertaining to this Sweepstakes. Potential Prize winner may be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility/Liability & Publicity Release within seventy-two (72) hours following the date of first attempted notification. Failure to comply within this time period may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate winner. In the event that any prize notification message is returned as undeliverable or if no response to the prize notification message is received within the time period stated or if the potential winner is found ineligible or does not comply with these Official Rules, the Prize may, in the Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion, be forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner selected at random from among remaining eligible entries. If the confirmed winner forfeits the Prize for any reason after confirmation, no alternate winner will be selected. In no event will more than two (2) Prize(s) be awarded. If, for any reason, more than one (1) prize notification is sent (or more than one (1) claim is received) per prize, Sponsor reserves the right to award the prize through a random drawing from among all eligible prize claims received. Prize winner(s) are responsible for any transportation, food, beverage, and/or incidental costs associated with event attendance. As a condition of entry, entrants agree that (1) the Sweepstakes is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter; and (2) any questions, comments or complaints regarding the Sweepstakes will be directed to Sponsor, not to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. Failure by the Sponsor to enforce any provision of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. Each potential winner may be subject to a background check before the Prize is awarded. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify a potential winner based on the results of such background check if Sponsor determines in its sole discretion that awarding the Prize to any such individual might reflect negatively on the Sponsor. Prize winner is responsible for any and all travel and/or costs required to attend the game other than the tickets provided as the Prize by the Sponsor. Use of any Major League Baseball game/event/exhibition ticket is subject to the standard terms, conditions, and health and safety policies applicable to the ticket. Each Winner’s guest(s) must be of legal age of majority in his/her(their) jurisdiction(s) of residence unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Major League Baseball game/event/exhibition dates and times are determined in the sole discretion of the BOC, the Red Sox and/or the MLB Entities and may be subject to change. The terms and conditions of the tickets awarded as part of any prize will govern in the event a legal game/event/exhibition, as defined by Major League Baseball, is not played or held due to weather conditions, an act of God, an act of terrorism, civil disturbance, or any other reason. Each Winner and his/her guest agree to comply with all applicable ballpark and venue regulations in connection with the Prize. The Red Sox and the other MLB Entities reserve the right to remove or to deny entry to any winner and/or his/her guest(s) who engage in a non-sportsmanlike or disruptive manner or with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten, or harass any other person at the game/event/exhibition. The Red Sox and the other MLB Entities will not be responsible for weather conditions; acts of God; acts of terrorism; civil disturbances; local, state, or federal regulation, order, or policy; work stoppage; epidemic, pandemic, or any other issue concerning public health or safety; or any other event outside of their control that may cause the cancellation or postponement of any Major League Baseball game/event/exhibition.
In the event of delays or cancellation of the 2023 Major League Baseball regular season schedule, or any applicable game, due to natural disaster, epidemic, work stoppage, strike, riot, act of terrorism, governmental action, civil commotion, directly or indirectly caused by unexpected travel advisories and restrictions as to health, including quarantines, as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), or other event beyond the control of Sponsor that would result in Sponsor’s inability to award the Prize, no prize will be awarded to Winner with Sponsor having no liability under any legal theory. Notice of such action by Sponsor will be posted on the Sweepstakes website.

Drawing. Winners will be selected in a random drawing from among all eligible entries collected during the Entry Period taking place on or about September 14, 2023 at 11:00 AM ET. 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. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entrant or Winner and may refuse to award a prize to a person who is not eligible or has violated a rule, gained unfair advantage in the Sweepstakes, or obtained winner status using fraudulent means. If there is a dispute about the identity of an entrant, prize will be awarded to the natural person associated with the account or provided by email. If a Winner is found to be ineligible or not in compliance with Sweepstakes rules, such Winner will be disqualified and an alternate Winner will be awarded the Prize in a separate random drawing. Winner will be notified by phone and/or email associated with their Jackpocket account or Free Entry. Inability of selected Winner to respond/contact Sponsor by telephone and/or email within twenty-four (24) hours after selection may result in disqualification of such Winner and an alternate winner may be selected in a random drawing at Sponsor’s sole discretion. The Prize will be sent to the Winner by email within twenty-four (24) hours after Winner has been notified and accepted the Prize. If any Prize is returned as undeliverable, then such Prize will be forfeited and another winner may be randomly drawn.
