** Unless you live in California
Alcoholic beverage companies often sponsor sweepstakes and contests with prizes ranging from elaborate vacations to concert tickets to spa days. Do you know who can enter these contests and sweepstakes? Anyone in the U.S except a Californian.
California is the only state to specifically prohibit alcoholic beverage companies from sponsoring sweepstakes and contests with exciting prizes. Seriously, the only one. Adding insult to injury, companies that do not sell alcoholic beverages are welcome to offer contests and sweepstakes to Californians.
