The DRAWING consists of one (1) drawing to be held on Thursday, January 3, 2019. The DRAWING date may be changed by the Lottery Administrator to meet the operational needs of the Lottery.
All prizes will be awarded but are limited to one (1) per person. Once an eligible DRAWING entry has been drawn for a person, any subsequent entries drawn for that same person will be disqualified.
In the DRAWING, there will be four (4) eligible entries drawn at random, with the order in which the entries are drawn being documented. The first eligible entry drawn shall win a $500 Visa Gift Card. Each of the next three (3) eligible entries drawn shall win a $100 Visa Gift Card. (See section D for prize details.)

If an entry for the DRAWING is disqualified or a prize is forfeited, an Alternate will be awarded the applicable prize. The order in which the Alternates are drawn shall determine the order in which an Alternate will be awarded a forfeited prize or a prize from a disqualified entry.
