This Promotion Rules apply generally to all in-venue text-to-win Promotion (“Promotion”) that occur within Live Nation owned and/or operated venues. However, certain Promotion in such venues may have rules written specifically for a particular game, which may differ. In case of conflict with these general rules, rules written specifically for a game will govern.


SPONSOR and ADMINISTRATOR: The Sponsor of the Promotion is Ohio Lottery (“Sponsor”). The administrator of the Promotion is Live Nation Marketing, Inc. (“Administrator”).  Sponsor and Administrator are collectively referred to herein as “Promotion Entities.” Administrator will conduct the Promotion substantially as described in these Official Rules. By participating in the Promotion each entrant agrees as follows:

ENTRY PERIOD: The Promotion will occur during the period indicated in the Promotion announcement on the venue screen and/or monitor, and running on public event dates only from 12:00 PM ET to 7:30 PM ET.  Although entry attempts to enter outside the periods indicated may be received, entries will not be eligible.

You may be charged text and data rates for the text messages sent and received from your handset according to the terms in your Wireless Calling Plan. Text Messaging and wireless service are not available in all areas.  Text "STOP" to 404040 to opt out or "HELP" to 404040 for more information. Sponsor reserves the right to transmit one (1) winner and one (1) non-winner message to each entrant at the conclusion of the Promotion.  Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any text message entry at any time that, in Sponsor’s opinion, does not comply with these Official Rules.

No third party entry or entry through Promotion service permitted. All entries become the property of the Administrator and none will be acknowledged or returned. Any individual who attempts or otherwise encourages, directly or indirectly, the entry of multiple or false contact information under multiple identities, or uses any device or artifice to enter or encourage, directly or indirectly, multiple or false entries, as determined by the Administrator, will be disqualified.  

If, in the Administrator’s opinion, there is any suspected or actual evidence of electronic or non-electronic tampering with any portion of the Promotion, or if a computer virus, bug, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical difficulties, or failures compromise or corrupt or affect the administration, integrity, security, fairness, or proper conduct of the Promotion, and/or the Promotion is not capable of being conducted as described in these Official Rules, Promotion Entities shall have the right, at their sole discretion, to disqualify any individual who tampers with the entry process and to void any entries submitted fraudulently, and/or to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend this Promotion, and conduct a random drawing to select the prize winners from all non-suspect entries received prior to action taken, or as otherwise deemed fair and appropriate by Promotion Entities. Promotion Entities reserve the right to prosecute any fraudulent entries to the fullest extent of the law.

ELIGIBILITY: The Promotion is open only to natural persons who are legal residents of the State of Ohio and who are at least eighteen (18) years of age at the time of entry.

In the event of a dispute as to the identity of an entrant, entry will be declared made by the registered account holder submitted at the time of entry.   The registered account holder is deemed to be the natural person who is (i) assigned the submitted mobile telephone number by a telephone company or wireless service provider that is responsible for assigning wireless phone numbers for the telephone exchange associated with the submitted telephone number, or (ii) assigned the submitted e-mail address by the relevant Internet service provider, online access provider or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. With respect to any winning entry, the winner may be required to provide Administrator with proof that the person is the registered account holder of the mobile telephone number, Twitter account, Facebook account or e-mail address, as applicable, associated with the winning entry.

Failure to comply with these Official Rules may result in disqualification from the Promotion.

Parking, travel and accommodations not included.  Promotion Entities reserve the right to not award any prize to, or to revoke full or partial prize from, any winner or winner’s guest who Promotion Entities and/or venue personnel deem may, in their sole discretion, be intoxicated, be a safety risk,  have violated any venue policy or law, and/or may bring Promotion Entities into disrepute.  The prize is non-transferable and resale of tickets is prohibited. Approximate Retail Value of each Grand Prize is: Seventy-Five Dollars ($75).

There will be only one prize per winner. Lost or stolen prizes will not be replaced. Prize does not include any other item or expense not specifically described in these Official Rules, and all additional expenses including, without limitation, travel expenses, if any, are the sole responsibility of winner. Prizes may not be transferred or assigned except to a surviving spouse living in the same household. Only listed prizes will be awarded and no substitutions or cash equivalents or redemption will be made, except that Administrator reserves the right to award a prize of equal or greater financial value if any advertised prize (or any component thereof) becomes unavailable. Prize cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion or offer. Winners agree to accept the prize “as is”, and entrants hereby acknowledge that Promotion Entities have neither made nor are in any manner responsible or liable for any warranty, representation, or guarantee, express or implied, in fact or in law, relative to the prize, including express warranties (if any) provided exclusively by a prize supplier that are sent along with the prize.

Any valuation of the prize(s) stated above is based on available information provided to Administrator and the value of any prize awarded to a winner may be reported for tax purposes as required by law. Each winner is solely responsible for reporting and paying any and all applicable taxes. Each winner must provide Administrator with a valid taxpayer identification number or social security number before any prize will be awarded. A Form 1099 will be issued to the winner for value of prize $600 or more. Prizes are not transferable, redeemable for cash or exchangeable for any other prize.

SELECTION OF WINNERS: Winners will be selected on or about 7:30 PM ET the day each Promotion is announced, in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received. The drawing will be conducted by Administrator, whose decisions and interpretations on all matters relating to the Promotion and these Official Rules are final and binding in all respects. Administrator reserves the right to disqualify any participant or winner and may refuse to award any prize to a person who is ineligible or has violated any rule, gained unfair advantage in participating in the Promotion, or obtained winner status using fraudulent means.   All potential winners are subject to verification by Administrator.  An entrant is not a winner of any prize, even if the Promotion should so indicate, unless and until entrant’s eligibility has been verified and entrant has been notified that verification is complete.  Administrator will not accept screen shots or other evidence of winning in lieu of its validation process.  Any play that occurs after the system has failed for any reason is deemed a defective play and is void and will not be honored.

Odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible entries received. Potential winners will be notified by telephone and/or e-mail and must meet all eligibility requirements. Return of a prize or prize notification as undeliverable, or inability of Administrator to contact a potential winner by telephone or e-mail within twenty (20) minutes of selection, may result in disqualification of such potential winner, and an alternate winner may be selected by random drawing at Administrator’s discretion. In the event a winner declines a prize, Administrator may, at its discretion, select an alternate winner by random drawing.  In such case, up to three (3) alternate drawings may be held, time permitting, after which the applicable prize will remain unawarded.

PUBLICITY, PRIVACY & PRIZE NOTIFICATION: Except where prohibited by law or regulation, by submitting an entry, entrant grants the Administrator a perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free license to use his/her name, character, photograph, voice, and likeness in connection with the promotion of this and other Promotion, and entrants waive any and all claims and/or rights to receive any royalties or other compensation for the Administrator’s use thereof, unless prohibited by law. Entry into this Promotion may require entrant to enter its email address and certain other personal information.  Entrants are informed that the personal data collection in connection with this Promotion will be collected by Administrator’s servers and computer systems, which are based in the United States and such collection will therefore be subject to applicable United States laws.  You may withdraw your personal data upon request; however, you will be disqualified as an entrant in this Promotion if you withdraw your personal data prior to the determination of the winner(s) and fulfillment of the prize(s).  If entrant opts in, entrant agrees that Administrator may use and disclose to third parties personal information obtained from entrants for marketing purposes. Winners may be required to complete, sign, notarize and return an affidavit of eligibility/liability release and a publicity release, which must be returned, properly executed, within three (3) days of issuance of prize notification. If these documents are not returned properly executed, or are returned to Administrator as undeliverable, or if any given prize winner does not otherwise comply with the Officials Rules, the prize will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner.

GENERAL CONDITIONS/RELEASE: The Promotion is void where prohibited by law and is governed by the laws of the United States of America. The submission of an entry is solely the responsibility of the entrant. Only eligible entries actually received during each specified Promotion entry period, will be included in the prize drawing.

CAUTION: ANY ATTEMPT BY AN ENTRANT OR ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE ANY WEBSITE, TAMPER WITH THE ENTRY PROCESS, OR OTHERWISE UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE PROMOTION MAY BE A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO COOPERATE IN THE PROSECUTION OF ANY SUCH INDIVIDUAL(S) AND TO PURSUE ALL REMEDIES TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. Promotion Entities’ failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. If for any reason the Promotion is not capable of being executed as planned, or infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, action of entrants, technical failures or any other causes which in the opinion of and/or Promotion Entities, corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity, or proper conduct of this Promotion, Promotion Entities reserve the right at their sole discretion to disqualify any suspect entry or entrant and to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Promotion.
