For prizes over twenty-five ($25) dollars in value, the winner (and anyone in the winner’s household) must wait sixty (60) days before they can win any prize (tickets, etc) again.

Satisfactory proof of identification and age must be presented when claiming a prize. Special considerations can arranged, if needed and requested.
A person cannot enter on behalf of another person (unless otherwise specified)
