Early Birds: 1:33 to become a Finalist. If all 999 Qualify in the first week of the contest, then everyone gets a 1:33 chance! We will roll nine times on the same day!
Lazy Bones: 1:999 to become a Finalist [i.e. if you wait until the end and only qualify for the last contest]
🏆 Tip #1: Qualify early. If you are in the first wave of Finalists, then you get the best chance to win
🏆 Tip #2: Help others Qualify. We will give away the prize after we get 999 Qualified. Tap the link in our bio and use the color-coding to see who is close to Qualifying - encourage them to finish Qualification via DM or comment
🔍 Transparent. As always, we do not randomly pick a winner like a lot of other contests. Each Qualifier gets one lucky number. We then roll dice [broadcast on Instagram Live], and the lucky number that comes up indicates the winner.

How You Win 🎲
🎲 Via a Live video, 10-sided dice are rolled to determine which dice combination is the winner. First roll determines the leftmost number, second roll the second, up to the last roll which determines the rightmost number.
🎲 Dice rolls are conducted the Monday following the Milestone. Those beyond the Milestone will be included as well. For example, if the 333 Milestone is reached on Wednesday, and 100 more Qualifiers receive their lucky number before the following Monday, then 433 Qualifiers will have a chance for the Milestone
🎲 If the lucky number of our profile, sponosor profiles, business profiles or any @johnspass Vacay Giveaway winner in the past six months is rolled, then there will be a re-roll.
🎲 If you win a Vacation Giveaway Grand prize [i.e. includes Lodging], then you cannot win on the next contest [i.e. you must wait ~four months].
Prizes will be mailed out at the end of the entire contest - logistically it's not feasible to collect prizes every week.
⏰ Allow 4 - 6 weeks for physical gift cards and prizes to arrive at your home.
