In the spirit of our new “$10,000 Taxes Paid” and“$100,000 Taxes Paid” Instant Tickets, the Massachusetts State Lottery is giving social media followers the chance to win a $1,000 cash prize, Taxes Paid*, in our “Taxes Paid”Sweepstakes.

Two $1,000 Taxes Paid prize winners will be selected, one from each of two five-day periods.  From Monday, February 8 through Friday, February 12, and again from Monday, February 15 through Friday, February 19, one finalist will be selected each day fromFacebook, Instagram and Twitter.  All finalists will receive a 3-month PowerballSeason Ticket ($50 value).  At the end of each five-day period, one of the 15 finalists for that period will be selected to receive a $1,000 cash prize, Taxes Paid.  To enter, all you have to do is respond to one of the calls to action that we post on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Each day at approximately 9 a.m., the Lottery will make a post on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter about the “Taxes Paid” Sweepstakes.  On Facebook and Instagram, you will be directed to comment on the post with “I want my Taxes Paid.”  On Twitter, you will be directed to Tweet @MAStateLottery with“#TaxesPaidPlease” in the Tweet.  It’s that simple.

You may enter once on all three social media channels each day.  Entries will close at 11:59 p.m. each day.

For each of the 10 days of the Sweepstakes, a total of three (3) finalists will be randomly selected – one each from Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  Finalists from each day will be selected the first business day following each of the 10 days of the Sweepstakes period.  The $1,000 Taxes Paid prize winners will be selected the Tuesday following each of the two five-day periods.  All finalists/prize winners will be announced on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and will also be posted on this page.  Finalists/prize winners will be notified via the social media channel through which they won their prize.  To claim the $1,000 Taxes Paid prizes and the 3-month Powerball Season Ticket prizes, winners must go to Mass. Lottery headquarters in Braintree or a regional office (Boston, New Bedford, Springfield, Woburn, Worcester) and complete a claim form.  Prizes will be mailed to winners after a claim form is submitted.
