The snow has melted away from this month's surprise snow storm! So, let's celebrate in a Mega way with a Facebook contest! You can enter for a chance to win free plays in Mega Millions® and some lottery swag, too!
You can enter May's Facebook contest beginning at 11 a.m. Monday (May 20) through 11 a.m. Tuesday (May 21). We'll be asking you a lottery-related question on the Iowa Lottery's Facebook page under the "Lottery Contests" tab. Enter for your chance to win one of three sets of $10 in Mega Millions coupons and lottery swag!
Visit our Facebook page beginning at 11 a.m. Monday through 11 a.m. Tuesday where we'll pose our question on the Lottery Contests tab located under our cover photo. When the man on the Lottery Contests tab turns green and says "Enter Now!" that's your cue to enter. Click the tab, read the question, fill in the entry form and your answer and click "submit" during the 24-hour window and you'll be entered. Limit one entry per person. It’s just that easy!
Important Note: The question will NOT appear on our Facebook "Wall." You'll need to visit our Facebook page and click the Lottery Contests tab to see it! Also, if you’re viewing our Facebook page on a smart phone, you will need to use the Desktop view in order to see the Lottery Contests tab. It does not appear in the mobile application view.
We’ll select three winners from the correct eligible answers submitted, so be sure to double-check your answer before you hit the submit button. Winners will be announced in our May Facebook contest results blog, on the Lottery Contests tab on our Facebook page and we'll link to the blog entry on Twitter.
We'll notify the winners by email to claim their prize. If you’re one of the winners, we'll need to verify your information to award your prize pack!
Winners will have until 4 p.m. on Tuesday, May 28, to verify their information with us. We'll also select alternates in case any of the winners are ineligible.
A few other details:
• You must currently be residing in Iowa to participate.
• You must be at least 21 years old to enter.
• There's no purchase necessary to enter or win.
• The Mega Millions coupons are only redeemable for tickets, not for cash.
• You can only enter once. If you try to enter more than once, only your first entry will be accepted.
