Big news, everyone. You know how much the PhoneDog crew likes to give stuff away, and we here at DroidDog are known for handing out a phone now and then as well. PhoneDog’s One-Pawed Bandit game alone is responsible for over 120 gadgets given to fans. That’s pretty impressive, but what we’ve got in store for you over the next two months is bigger. Much bigger.
We’re giving away up to 100 iPads, and one lucky person will get a trip for two (including airfare, hotel, and game tickets) to the Super Bowl.
All of the terms and conditions are embedded below, but here’s a simple explanation of how this will work:
To enter, all you have to do is like a PhoneDog Facebook page and fill out an entry form by clicking the green “Enter Sweepstakes” button cleary posted on each page. You can only enter once per Facebook page, but we will be unveiling several pages in the coming weeks where you can submit more entires.
For starters, register for the facebook.com/PhoneDog page by clicking here.
Grab a second entry at facebook.com/WinFreePrizes by clicking here.
For every 10,000 entires we get, PhoneDog will give away 1 iPad. So telling your friends doesn’t hurt your chances here. On the contrary; if we get 1 million entries, we will give away 100 16GB iPads! Your odds for an iPad are roughly 1 in 10,000 no matter how many people enter, and you’ll be given more chances to enter in the near future. Odds for the Super Bowl depend on the total entries received.
The Super Bowl (Grand Prize) winner will be randomly chosen on January 17th on PhoneDog’s Facebook page. iPad drawings begin January 17th at 8pm ET via live broadcast on the same page. 10 will be given away that night, and every subsequent night, starting at 8pm Eastern. The number of iPads given away is dependent on the number of entries: 1 iPad per 10,000 entries. If we get 1 million entries, we’ll be giving away 10 iPads a night for 10 nights (100 total).
Got it? Good. if not, check out the terms and conditions below. Good luck. The contest is LIVE. Let’s get started!
