The West Virginia Lottery’s “Wear Your Blue & Gold” Facebook Promotion

WEST VIRGINIA LOTTERY “WEAR YOUR BLUE & GOLD” PROMOTION
West Virginia Lottery Facebook Promotion 3/16/2016


The West Virginia Lottery is showing its support for the West Virginia University men’s basketball team by encouraging our Facebook fans to post pictures where they are wearing their Blue & Gold throughout the team’s post season run. The Lottery will randomly choose one fan who enters their photo to receive 100 promotional lottery tickets. If the Mountaineers advance, the Lottery will randomly pick someone to win 200 promotional lottery tickets. If the Mountaineers advance to the third round, an entrant will receive 300 tickets and one lucky entrant will be chosen to win 400 tickets when the team makes it to the following round and so on. Should West Virginia make its way to the National Championship game – we will randomly select one of our Blue & Gold entrants to win 1,000 promotional lottery tickets!

2. Players enter and agree to theses rules by posting a selfie where they are wearing the colors of blue and gold in the comment section of the actual promotional post on the West Virginia Lottery’s Facebook page (other posts to page that are not directly in the contests post’s comments will not be considered). The West Virginia Lottery will randomly select one entrant to win a prize per round.
