These Official Rules are to be read in conjunction with the Terms and Conditions found at Galaxy Fortunes (the “Ts & Cs”). All sweepstakes offered by the Sponsor are in no way affiliated with Apple Inc. or Google Inc.

  • 1. Duration. The Galaxy Fortunes Sweepstakes (the "Sweepstakes") begins on May 1st at 12:00 am Pacific Standard Time and continues until such time as the Sponsor determines to terminate the availability of the Sweepstakes , which determination may be made without further notice to participants and in the Sponsor’s sole discretion ("Sweepstakes Period").
  • 2. Eligibility. The Sweepstakes is open only to legal permanent residents of the United States (including the District of Columbia but excluding the outlying territories and the state of Washington) and Canada (excluding Quebec) playing from within the United States excluding the outlying territories and the state of Washington) or Canada (excluding Quebec), who are at least 18 years of age or the age of majority in their jurisdiction of permanent residence, whichever is older, as of the date of entry.

By participating, you agree to comply with and be bound by these Official Rules, the Ts & Cs and the decisions of the Sponsor, which are final and binding in all respects. The Sweepstakes is void in any jurisdiction not included in the above and where prohibited by law, rule or regulation.
  • 3. How to Enter. In order to enter the Sweepstakes, you must create and maintain an active account (a “Player Account”) at Galaxy Fortunes and access the Sweepstakes by logging into that Player Account. Upon logging into a Player Account, there are four possible ways for a player to enter the Sweepstakes by collecting Sweeps Tokens:
  • a) When entering Sweeps Tokens no-cost giveaway contests on the Sponsor’s social media pages, found at [insert URLs/links] (the “Social Media Sites”). The Sponsor regularly holds Sweeps Token no-cost giveaway contests which can be entered by following the instructions provided at the Social Media Sites. The amount of Sweeps Tokens given away will be stated on the applicable Social Media Sites and will be credited to players’ Player Accounts where appropriate.
  • b) By logging into your Player Account and obtaining the Daily Bonus. Players can receive free Sweeps Tokens once per day by logging into their Player Accounts and, when prompted by a pop-up screen, clicking on the claim button indicated.
  • c) The Sponsor offers free-to-play online social casino games to the public that are separate and apart from the Sweepstakes (the “Social Games”). In order to play the Social Games, players receive free credits (“Game Tokens”) at the time of sign-up and can also obtain free distributions of Game Tokens during the course of play. Game Tokens can only be used to play and extend play of Social Games; they are non-transferable by players, and cannot be exchanged for anything of marketable value. Players can also purchase additional Game Tokens for monetary consideration, and those who choose to do so will receive Sweeps Tokens as a free bonus upon the purchase of Game Tokens, or any other items offered for sale by the Sponsor for monetary consideration within the context of the Social Games. The number of Sweeps Tokens a participant will receive as a bonus for each eligible purchase will be stated on the Website.
  • d) By postal request: Players can receive free Sweeps Tokens by sending a standard post card or piece of white paper which must be 4” x 6”, unfolded, blank and unlined (a “Request Card”) and placed inside a stamped #10 envelope (limit one (1) Request Card per envelope) addressed in handwriting and satisfying the requirements set out below:

If the handwriting on a Request Card is not legible (as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion), it will be void and Sweeps Tokens will not be credited to the sender’s Player Account. Each Request Card must only be made and sent by the individual indicated thereon and must be posted from the same state or province as the verified residential address of the said individual, failing which the Request Card will be declared invalid and Sweeps Tokens will not be credited to the individual’s Player Account. Tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes, including but not limited to the use of any device to automate the request/entry process, is prohibited and any Request Cards deemed by Sponsor to have been submitted in this manner will be void. All decisions concerning the validity of a Request Card shall be determined by the Sponsor in the exercise of its sole discretion, and all such decisions shall be final.
    • c. Incomplete Entries and Entries with Errors Sponsor is not responsible for Sweeps Token requests or allocations that are incomplete, corrupted, false, lost, late, misdirected, deceptive, or are otherwise not in compliance with these Official Rules. The validity of Sweeps Tokens may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes at Sponsor's sole and absolute discretion. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who submitted a Sweeps Token request or allocation cannot be resolved to the Sponsor's satisfaction, the affected request or allocation will be deemed invalid.
    • d. Owner of Player Account. In the event of a dispute as to any registration of a Player Account, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register the Player Account will be deemed to be the individual eligible to participate in the Sweepstakes. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned the email address by an internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address.
    • e. Automated Play. Use of any automated or other system(s) to participate in the Sweepstakes, to acquire Sweeps Tokens or play the games is prohibited and will result in disqualification and loss of eligibility to participate in the Sweepstakes or to redeem Sweeps Tokens.
    • f. Validity of Sweeps Tokens.In the event that there is no activity within a Player Account for 60 consecutive days, the Sponsor reserves the right to deem any or all of the Sweeps Tokens in that Player Account to have automatically expired. Sweeps Tokens may also be forfeited if a Player Account is terminated, closed or suspended for any reason, or otherwise at the Sponsor’s discretion.
  • 4. Prizes. Players with Sweeps Tokens obtained in the manner set forth in Section 3 of these Official Rules can use those Sweeps Tokens to play games for a chance to win additional Sweeps Tokens. It is only Sweeps Tokens won through game play that can be redeemed for real prizes. Game Tokens can never be redeemed for real prizes.

    The amount of Sweeps Tokens required to play each game will be detailed next to the game. A player may be able to increase the amount of Sweeps Tokens they play the game with so as to increase the value of their potential win in the game. The prize that can be won while playing a game will be shown by clicking the “Win Table” or “Pay Table” button, denominated as “Sweeps Tokens”.

    Each Sweeps Token that has been won through game play (rather than collected using one of the methods described in Section 3 above) can be redeemed for a prize with value being equivalent to US$1.

    Sponsor’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes, the games and the amount of winnings are final and binding.

    Unless Sponsor requires otherwise, any Sweeps Tokens allocated to a player are required to be played at least once before they are eligible to be redeemed for prizes. Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, require that any Sweeps Tokens allocated to a player must be played a greater number of times in any combination of Sweeps Tokens games before they are eligible to be redeemed for prizes.

    Sponsor reserves the right to change the prize win rates and odds of any of the Sweepstakes at any time. A player can see the actual and any amended details by clicking on the “Win Table” or “Pay Table” button. It is a player’s responsibility to check the prize win rate on each occasion before they participate.

    A player’s Sweeps Token balance is shown in their Player Account, including the amount of Sweeps Tokens available to be redeemed for prizes. Where a player elects to redeem Sweeps Tokens or prizes for cash value, the cash payment will be paid in the currency of the player’s place of residence as indicated in their Player Account, either Canadian Dollars or U.S. Dollars, to the financial account or online wallet from which the player purchased Game Tokens, where applicable. Alternatively, and subject to the discretion of the Sponsor to require a specific payment method, cash payments may be made to an alternative account nominated by the player. Sponsor is not responsible for any foreign exchange transaction fees, charges, losses due to fluctuations or other costs that may be incurred as a result of, or in relation to, a prize redemption.

    Where a player elects to redeem Sweeps Tokens for prizes that include travel, third-party goods, or third-party services, such prizes will be awarded as vouchers, gift cards, or certificates. For such prizes, Sponsor's sole obligation is to award and deliver to eligible winners such vouchers, gift cards, or certificates. Where a player has chosen to redeem prizes that are to be awarded as vouchers, gift cards or certificates, the said vouchers, gift cards or certificates will be allocated to the email address that the player has registered in their Player Account.

    Sponsor will only process a redemption of eligible Sweeps Tokens if the player has requested the redemption of a minimum of [100] eligible Sweeps Tokens, and as such a Player Account must have a balance of at least [100] eligible Sweeps Tokens before requesting a prize redemption. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to limit the number of Sweeps Tokens a player may redeem to [10,000] per day.

    To be eligible to redeem Sweeps Tokens, a player must be in full compliance with these Official Rules, including without limitation the requirement that the player must be a legal permanent resident of the United States (including the District of Columbia but excluding the outlying territories and the state of Washington) or Canada (excluding Quebec) and must be physically present in the United States (excluding the outlying territories and the state of Washington) or Canada (excluding Quebec) at the time the request to redeem is made, and the player’s details must match the information provided in setting up that player’s Player Account.

    Sweeps Tokens are not transferable and no substitution will be made except as provided herein at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any listed prize for one of equal or greater value for any reason.

  • 5. Prize Restrictions. Potential Sweepstakes winners are subject to verification by Sponsor (in any manner it may choose) and the decisions of Sponsor are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. A player is not a winner of any prize, even if an online screen indicates they are, unless and until the player’s eligibility and the potential winning play has been verified and the player has fully complied with these Official Rules and been notified that verification is complete. Sponsor will not accept screen shots or other purported evidence of winning in lieu of its validation process.

    If a potential Sweepstakes winner resides in or is physically present in New York and Florida, the maximum redemption value of a prize that potential winner may win through the redemption of Sweeps Tokens on any one spin or play is US$4,999. Any attempted redemption of a prize valued in excess of US$4,999 will not be allocated or paid.

    Potential prize winners must comply with these Official Rules and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements.

    A potential prize winner may be required to sign and return to Sponsor documentation in a form provided by the Sponsor whereby the potential prize winner (i) consents to the use of his/her rights of publicity, (ii) assumes all tax liabilities, (iii) waives all claims against Sponsor and Sweepstakes Parties, and (iv) confirms and/or provides verification of his/her eligibility to participate in the Sweepstakes (collectively "Affidavits and Waivers"). In addition, in the case of a Canadian eligible potential winner, he/she will be required to correctly answer a mathematical skill-testing question without mechanical or other aid to be administered at a pre-arranged mutually convenient time by a method to be determined by the Sponsor in its sole discretion.

    If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to properly execute and return the affidavit/declaration of eligibility and liability/publicity release within the required time period (if applicable), fails to comply with these Official Rules (including, but not limited to, the requirement to correctly answer the mathematical skill-testing question in the case of a Canadian eligible potential winner), or if the prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, that potential winner forfeits the prize.

  • 6. Notification. Potential winners shall be notified by e-mail, SMS message, MMS message or RCS message using the contact information indicated in the individual’s Player Account.
