Welcome to the Sweepstakes!
WELCOME TO THE GOLD RUSH CITY SWEEPSTAKES!
This sweepstakes is an opportunity open to all. No purchase is necessary, but there are some rules. Please keep in mind that this sweepstakes is not sponsored or supported by any external platform provider such as Apple or Google.
The sweepstakes is designed to promote and advertise online video games made available by Gold Rush City via its website at www.GoldRushCity.com. No purchase, payment, entry fee or proof of purchase is required as a condition of entering the sweepstakes or receiving a prize. A purchase will not improve the chances of winning.
The sweepstakes is only open to legal residents of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia who are eighteen years of age or older. Void where prohibited by law. The sweepstakes is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Employees of Gold Rush City and its affiliates are not eligible to win. The purchase of game credits from Gold Rush City does not automatically enter the purchaser in the sweepstakes.
HOW TO ENTER WITH PURCHASE OF ECREDITS
Free promotional entries accompany the purchase of a gift certificate which may be applied toward the purchase of online video game credits sold by Gold Rush City. You cannot purchase entries directly. The gift certificate and the associated sweepstakes entries are dispensed by the sweepstakes terminal. Entries also may be obtained without a purchase as described below. The sweepstakes does not differentiate between entries received in connection with a purchase of any eCredits and those received without a purchase.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY METHOD OF ENTRY
You can always enter the sweepstakes for free! When you create a free account on one of our kiosks, you will have access to request a free entry every single day. Just log in, and select 'No Purchase Necessary'.
PRIZES, GAMES AND ODDS OF WINNING
Only cash prizes are available. Not every entry will win a prize. You will play a fun game to see if you have won a prize. Each sweepstakes entry has several different games to play and each game may be played at various levels. Please refer to the rules screen in each game regarding the details of the game and total amount of prizes and winners available in a fully-loaded game. The odds of winning will depend on the game selected and the level selected.

Cash prizes must be redeemed at the retail location where the sweepstakes terminal is located. All prize winnings are subject to verification. Prizes are not transferable and no substitution of prizes is permitted. Prizes awarded from malfunction are not valid.
