We’re making a slight change in the way you can enter our social media contests. Starting next month, you’ll be able to enter our contests from four platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
Google+ will not be one of the platforms involved. Please don’t think we’re picking on that service or you if you’re a Google+ fan! We’re making the change because we’re doing our best to comply with Google+ policies.
In its terms for regulated goods and services, Google+ states that it does not allow content to be posted that facilitates the sale of a list of items, including gambling products. We work hard to follow rules and policies, and because we give away lottery tickets in our monthly contests, that may cross a line within Google+ definitions.
We’ve therefore removed Google+ as an option for entering our social media contests. But you’ll still have four other popular platforms to choose from, so not to worry. (As a reminder, our next contest starts at 10 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 12. Click here for the full details!)
