FAQs

  1. Why do I receive a different link when I text for raffle tickets?

With the integrated payment system, participants will receive a text with a custom link for their phone number. This link will bring participants to a secure URL, where they can select the number of tickets they would like to buy and can enter their credit card information.

  1. Why don’t I receive ticket numbers for my purchased tickets?

Since the raffle is done digitally no ticket numbers are generated. The number of tickets you purchase indicates how many times your name is entered into the raffle drawing. The winner will be announced by name, city and state.

  1. Are ticket purchases verified by text or email or both? Does it differ depending on whether or not it was purchased by text or online?

Guests will receive an email regardless of how their purchase was made. If the guest purchased via text, they will also receive a text confirmation.

  1. How is the raffle winner selected?

One (1) Winner Raffle Ticket will be drawn randomly under the supervision of the licensed game manager, on Friday, March 5, 2021 between 1:00-1:30 PM (MST) on a Facebook live feed on the official SME Facebook page. Winner need not be present to win.

  1. Can I purchase raffle tickets for someone other than myself?

Yes, however, the tickets must be in their name before the date of the drawing. Also, the transferee must be aware of the following conditions: (a) the transferee would have otherwise been eligible to enter the Raffle (age eighteen (18) or older); (b) the transferee shall be responsible for all taxes and costs described in these Official Rules; and (c) the transferee shall be bound by all terms and conditions of the Official Rules that are applicable to the winner.

  1. Are my raffle ticket purchases tax-deductible?

For the purpose of determining your personal federal income tax, the cost of a raffle ticket is not deductible as a charitable contribution. It may be deductible as a gambling loss, but only up to the amount of any gambling winnings from that tax year.

  1. I won’t be able to watch the live raffle – can I still win?

Yes! While we’d love to have you join us on Facebook Live, you do not need to be present to win. We will contact the winner with the contact information provided during the ticket purchase process.

  1. If I win, what do I do next?
