Default Spirit Sweepstakes

Hey all,

Just a friendly FYI that Spirit (on Facebook) is doing a $100 gift card sweepstakes, with three instant winners each day. Good luck!

Relatedly, I noticed the following paragraph in their "Rules:"

"In the case of a selected winner who is a Canadian resident, s/he must also answer, without assistance of any kind, whether mechanical or otherwise, a mathematical skill testing question posed by telephone or email."



Does anyone have any clue why Canadian residents would be required to do a math test? I mean really, that just seems cruel!

Cheers!

It's part of the anti-gambling law in Canada for a sweepstakes to be legal, as in, not considered a game of chance:

I always wondered about that one, too
