A list of Retail Locations is available at Participation in each local scratch card instant win promotion is separate.

A local scratch card instant win promotion may end earlier if all Game Pieces for that Retail Location have been distributed before the end of the Promotion Period.  The Sponsor’s database computer is the official time-keeper for the Game.   If any local scratch card instant win promotion ends early, notice will be posted at the Retail Location and online at
