Rules

Fantasy 5® Football Draft Day Experience Promotion Official Rules

  1. Beginning Monday, February 25, 2013, through Wednesday, April 3, 2013, the Florida Lottery will conduct the FANTASY 5® Football Draft Day Experience Promotion (or "Promotion"). Players who purchase a single $5.00 or more FANTASY 5 ticket at a Florida Lottery (or "Lottery") retailer location will receive an entry voucher with a unique number that can be entered into a drawing in one of three participating professional football team experiences for a chance to win professional football team prizes. The team experiences are: the Jaguars FANTASY 5 Football Draft Day Experience, the Buccaneers FANTASY 5 Football Draft Day Experience, and the Dolphins FANTASY 5 Football Draft Day Experience. The purchase price of an EZmatch™ play will not count towards the $5.00 FANTASY 5 purchase requirement.
  2. To enter a voucher number into a team experience drawing, players must enter on the Lottery's website at www.flalottery.com. On the home page of the Lottery's website, players can click on the FANTASY 5® Football Draft Day Experience Promotion banner and follow the directions. Players can also access the Lottery's website to enter a voucher number via a link located on each of the three professional football teams' websites
  3. The entry voucher will be attached to the bottom of the FANTASY 5 ticket. The voucher entry number is located at the bottom on the front of the voucher. Players are to enter the first 13-digits of the 19-digit voucher entry number. Qualifying FANTASY 5 ticket purchases will produce entry vouchers from the beginning of the promotion period until close of game for FANTASY 5 at 10:40 p.m. on April 3, 2013. A player will be able to enter his or her voucher entry numbers beginning at the top of the hour after the FANTASY 5 ticket is purchased. A player entering a voucher entry number prior to the top of the hour after purchase will be directed to return at a later time to enter his or her voucher entry number into the drawing. FANTASY 5 tickets cannot be used for entry into the drawings. The odds of winning are dependent upon the number of entries received. Entry vouchers should not be mailed to the Lottery unless players are contacted by the Florida Lottery and requested to do so. Entry vouchers or tickets received in the mail by the Florida Lottery will not be entered into the drawing and will not be returned. Cancellation of a qualifying FANTASY 5 ticket will also cancel the associated entry voucher and the voucher entry number will be ineligible for entry into a drawing. Voucher entry numbers associated with a cancelled FANTASY 5 ticket that are entered into a drawing will be disqualified.

  4. In each of the three team experiences, one computerized drawing will be held on two separate drawing dates and will include entries submitted during the corresponding entry period, for a grand total of six drawings. The drawing dates and entry periods are as follows:

A nonresident alien claimant who is selected as a winner of a prize for which tax withholding is not paid by the Florida Lottery will be required to pay the withholding tax or forfeit the prize.
