St Pete Vacay Giveaway Rules
🏆 Gold Sponsors:
How to Win: It's now easier to Qualify, with better chances to win and a shorter time frame to get a Vacay Giveaway!
✅ Qualify in just one easy step: Follow the local small businesses sponsors below. You are already following many - tap here to view the qualifiers to see which profiles you have left to follow. You will get your lucky number once this step is completed.
🎰 Better Odds. Previous Vacay Giveaways had 10,000+ entries. This time Qualifiers have a much better chance at Prize Milestones. If you get in early, then you can win with just 333 entries!
🏆 Prize #1: 333 Qualifiers
🏆 Prize #2: 555 Qualifiers
🏆 Prize #3: 777 Qualifiers
🏆 Prize #4: 999 Qualifiers
🎖 Prize #5, Grand Prize: December 29th
📅 Win Earlier - and often. Now you do not have to wait four months to win. The first Vacay Giveaway will probably be in the first week! We now giveaway a full prize pacakge the Sunday after a Prize Milestone is met.
🔍 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.
Timing: Starts September 13th, Ends December 29th

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 Sunday following the Prize 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 Sunday, then 433 Qualifiers will have a chance to win Prize #1. If two milestones are met in the same week, then the subsequent Sunday will roll the most recent milestone's prize. That is, no single Sunday will award more than one winner as a result of the total Qualifiers.
🎲 If the lucky number of our profile, sponosor profiles, business profiles or any @stpetebeach Vacay Giveaway winner in the past six months is rolled, then there will be a re-roll.
🎲 The first 100 Qualifiers may DM us their choice of lucky number 0 - 333. Those after 100 will be assigned a lucky number sequentilly in chronologicaly order vis-a-vis their qualification. Tap here to view the qualifiers.
🎲 If you win a Vacation Giveaway prize, then you pick prizes from those that are remaining [e.g. Grand Prize will get the Hotel/Restaurant Package that is remaining after the first four have won].
🎲 If you win a Vacation Giveaway prize, then you cannot win on the next contest [i.e. you must wait ~four months].
🎲 If you win both Prize 1 - 4 and the Grand Prize, then we will re-roll for Prize 1 - 4 [i.e. you cannot win both, but you can win the Grand Prize]
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.
Other Rules: 🧐
🎇 All scoring relates to the @stpetebeach Insta profile AND all of our Gold Sponsors. EVERY post published during the Duration of Vacay Giveaway is eligible for points - even if there is not an explicit notation.
❌ Posts may be deleted at any time, for any reason. Those that have already scored on those posts will NOT lose their points. We recommend setting a notification on your phone when our profile [or Gold sponsor] publishes a new post so that you do not miss out on an opportunity.

To be clear, your complaining will not benefit you nor will it punish others. Work constructively with us, and we might give you a bonus point or two.

👪 You must be accompanied by someone 25 or older in order to reserve a room.
🎲 Contact each business for rules pertaining to their prize item [e.g. blackout dates on room stays, gift card expiration]
