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. Lottery ticket orders made for scratch games (e.g., scratchers) will not provide any entries in the Sweepstakes for the amounts of such lottery ticket orders made for scratch games.
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/ufmGlRnR (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 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. No third party entry or entry through any Sweepstakes service is permitted. Any person who attempts or otherwise encourages the entry of multiple or false contact information under multiple identities or uses any device or artifice to enter or encourage multiple or false entries, as determined by Sponsor, will be disqualified. Use of robotic entry devices is strictly prohibited.

Drawing. Winners will be selected in a random drawing from among all eligible entries collected during the Entry Period, taking place on or about November 27, 2023 at 9:00 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, to be determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion. 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 the Sweepstakes rules, such winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner will be awarded the prize in a separate random drawing at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Winner will be notified by phone and/or email associated with their Jackpocket account or Free Entry. Inability of Sponsor to contact winner by telephone and/or email within forty-eight (48) 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. Prize will be sent to each winner by email within forty-eight (48) hours after such winner has been notified and accepted the prize. If a prize is returned as undeliverable, then such prize will be forfeited and another winner may be randomly drawn. Each potential winner may be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and (where legal) a Publicity Release; failure to comply when requested may result in disqualification and award of prize to an alternate winner.
Odds. The odds of winning will depend on the number of eligible participants, according to the eligibility requirements in the Sweepstakes.
