Louisiana Lottery's Jingle Bells in July Promotion
Louisiana residents who are at least 21 years of age are invited to help the Lottery choose its 2013 holiday scratch-off collection by voting in the Jingle Bells in July promotion on Facebook.
Votes will be accepted only through the Lottery’s designated application on Facebook July 22-24, 2013. Five lucky winners will be randomly selected from those eligible participants to receive a summer prize package including $25 worth of scratch-offs and a Lottery crawfish tray.
The collection of scratch-offs to be sold during the 2013 holiday season will be announced by the Lottery in October. At that time, five additional winners will be randomly selected from the participants who voted for the winning collection to receive a holiday gift pack featuring those scratch-offs and other promotional items.

Beginning Monday, July 22, eligible participants can cast a vote for their favorite of the three holiday scratch-off collections presented by the Lottery. Votes must be submitted electronically through the Lottery’s designated application on Facebook by midnight July 24 to be considered.
Participation requires the user to “Like” the Louisiana Lottery on its Facebook page and to accept the contest terms and conditions. No votes will be accepted in person, by mail or through any method other than the Lottery’s designated Facebook application.
All required information on the contest entry form must be completed in full, and votes may not be changed or altered once submitted. Each participant may vote only once.
