2. How to Play
Buy X Get Y Promotions: With a designated dollar-amount or Lottery-ticket purchase, (“Qualifying Purchase”) during one or more retail events at the location of Lottery offices or participating retailer(s), the purchaser will be considered to be a Qualifying Purchaser. For each Qualifying Purchase, the Qualifying Purchaser may receive a gift or gifts or may receive the opportunity to spin a prize wheel to win a prize or prizes.
Second Chance Draw Promotions: The player may be asked to submit a specific type of a non-winning ticket into a drawing at a designated location. A winner or winners will be randomly drawn to receive a prize or prizes.
Media Promotions: The player may be asked through social media, radio, or other broadcasting media to take some type of action, such as driving to the Phoenix or Tucson Lottery office or to a specified retailer, in order to be qualified to win a prize or prizes (“Qualifying Action”). For social media contests or promotions, the following rules apply:
- Any player found to use multiple accounts to enter will be ineligible to win a prize or prizes;
- Multiple entries, unless otherwise noted, will not be accepted during a single promotion;
- Inaccurate creation of tag content or use of hashtags to unrelated updates is prohibited;
- Any player who violates the terms or rules of a social media site will be disqualified;
- No SNAP promotion is sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or associated with the social media platform provider. All releases stated in these Official Rules apply to all social media platform providers that the Lottery uses to administer its SNAP promotion;
- Personal timelines and friend connections will not be used to administer SNAP promotions; SNAP promotions will only be administered on Lottery or co-sponsor pages or in Lottery or co-sponsor promotional applications;
- A player’s entry into a SNAP promotion on a social media platform serves as that player’s consent to the Lottery’s collection of information from that player and the use of information for later advertising and promotions.
Entertainment Event Promotions. A player maybe asked to join in a contest at a public event, concert, exhibition or sports game (an “Entertainment Event”) for a chance to win a prize or prizes.
There is no limit on the total amount of Lottery tickets that can be purchased at any time, but there may be a limit of the number of SNAP Prizes that will be made available during a SNAP, regardless of the number of Qualifying Purchases or drawing entries made. All SNAP Prizes are first-come-first-served, subject to availability, and conditional upon supplies lasting and the limitations set by the Lottery or the participating retailer in their sole discretion for any individual SNAP under these Official Rules. Such limitations may or may not be posted prior to any individual SNAP.
All SNAP promotional entries shall become the property of the Arizona Lottery and may be used for marketing and solicitation purposes.
3. Retail Event Duration and Location
The ability of the Lottery to create a SNAP under these Official Rules will continue until these Official Rules are revoked. The date, time, duration and location of any event under these Official Rules are subject to the sole discretion of the Lottery, the co-sponsor, and the participating retailer, may or may not be announced or posted prior to any individual SNAP, and are subject to change.
Up-to-date information on the details of a SNAP may be available by social media or at www.ArizonaLottery.com, or both. Any SNAP Prizes not redeemed during a SNAP event may be used for subsequent promotions, if applicable.
Random drawings will be conducted in Second Chance Draw events, and may be conducted in Media Promotions and Entertainment Event Promotions. The drawings will be conducted by a representative of the Lottery, a representative of a designated retailer, or an advertising co-sponsor.
SNAP Prizes may differ from but may include such items as professional sports game tickets, concert or event tickets (collectively, “Tickets”), Lottery tickets, gift cards, or autographed or branded promotional items, which may be provided by the Lottery, advertising co-sponsors, or Lottery retailers.
Tickets are to be used for personal use only and may not be resold or redistributed for profit. Any such resale may result in disqualification and prize forfeiture, and may invalidate any license granted by the Tickets. There will be no guarantee as to Ticket seat locations. The terms and conditions of any Tickets awarded as SNAP Prizes will govern if a Promotion or an Entertainment Event is not held due to a Force Majeure event, as defined below. Otherwise, if a Promotion or an Entertainment Event is delayed, postponed or cancelled for any reason or a player, winner or guest cannot attend, the player, winner or guest will not be reimbursed.
6. Taxes and Expenses
The winners are responsible for any local, state and federal taxes. A Form W2-G and/or Form 1099-MISC may be issued based on the value of a prize.
Any additional expenses incident to any prize or the SNAP are the responsibility of the players/winners and are not included. For example, travel, lodging, food and beverages related to the SNAP or attendance at an Entertainment Event are not included, unless indicated otherwise in writing in the individual SNAP announcement.
7. Odds of Winning
Winning SNAP Prizes is guaranteed in a Buy X, Get Y or Media promotion, provided Qualifying Purchases or Actions are completed, prize limits have not been reached, and supplies last. The odds of winning SNAP prizes during a Retailer Second Chance Drawing depend on the number of entries received. Winning SNAP prizes during an Entertainment Event promotion is guaranteed, if the player has the skill and ability to win the contest, prize limits have not been reached, and supplies last, subject to contest limitations. The odds of winning on any Lottery tickets that are purchased or won during a SNAP event are the same as are listed on the official game profile for the relevant game.
8. Notification/Forfeiture of Prizes
Winners of SNAP Prizes will be notified of winning and/or will receive any prizes won during the applicable SNAP event.
9. General Terms
Participants of a SNAP agree to be bound by these Official Rules. All entrants and winners are solely responsible for the actions of any guests who accompany them to a SNAP event or to any Entertainment Event. No prize substitution, cash equivalent, or transfer of prize by any winner in violation of these rules and regulations is permitted. The Parties reserve the right to substitute prizes of equal or greater value.

The Parties reserve the right, in their sole discretion, to modify these Official Rules without materially affecting the terms and conditions of the SNAP. No modification or amplification, oral or written, with respect to the covenants, conditions and terms herein shall be binding upon the Parties unless it is in writing and mutually approved by the Parties.

The Parties’ failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.

The Parties are not responsible for any printing or technical error which may occur in processing, printing or distribution of SNAP materials.
