YOTTA SWEEPSTAKES OFFICIAL RULES
NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT IS NECESSARY TO ENTER. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.
Apple does not sponsor and is not involved in this promotion or any other Yotta promotion.
Yotta allows individuals to deposit and save money. For each $25 on deposit with Yotta up to the first $10k of balance, an individual will earn one Ticket. Thereafter on incremental balances above $10k, for each $150 on deposit, an individual will earn one Ticket. A Ticket allows an individual to select one set of numbers. A set of numbers consists of six regular numbers and one Yotta Ball. If an individual has a Ticket but does not select numbers, the individual will be assigned random numbers (six numbers and one Yotta Ball). As detailed below when the numbers on an individual’s Ticket match the randomly drawn numbers the individual will win cash.
The Yotta Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”) is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States (and the District of Columbia), who are at least eighteen (18) years old at the time of entry.

4. How to Get a Ticket
There are two ways to get a Ticket.
- Have Funds on Deposit with Yotta App. For every $25 you have on deposit up to $10,000, you will receive one (1) Ticket. For every $150 above $10,000, you will receive one (1) ticket. For every paycheck direct deposited into Yotta, you will receive 5% of the amount of the paycheck in tickets one time for the following week's contest. On your very first paycheck deposited, you get 20% of the amount in tickets for the following week's contest. For each Ticket you will be able to select seven numbers (six numbers and one Yotta Ball). At any time, you can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and request a re-assessment of your ticket ratios. Tickets received after 1:30pm EST on Monday are NOT eligible to win the Grand Prize (6 numbers matching plus matching YottaBall) for that week, but are eligible to win smaller prizes. If you receive a Ticket after Monday at 1 1:30pm EST you will have the opportunity to select numbers from the set of numbers that have not yet been drawn that week. For example, if you receive a Ticket on Thursday and the numbers 4, 20, and 30 were selected, you will not be able to select those numbers.
- Mailing In. You can receive one (1) Ticket by sending a handwritten sheet of paper with your name, address, e-mail, and phone number to: Yotta Technologies Inc. 2261 Market Street #4313 San Francisco, CA 94114. For each completed sheet of paper, you will receive one (1) Ticket. If you want to select your own numbers you should include those numbers on the sheet of paper. If you do not provide numbers, they will be randomly provided. Limit of one request per envelope. The entry will award a Ticket for the drawing that starts on the next Monday, after the mail in was received (not postmarked).
Use of any automated system to enter is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible or misdirected entries all of which will be ineligible to win a prize. In the event of a dispute as to any entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant. Potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder to be awarded the prize. Limit of 100,000 Tickets per person per week, regardless of method of obtaining a Ticket.
5. Number Selection
Seven numbers (six regular numbers and one Yotta Ball) will randomly be selected on the following schedule:
- First Number – Monday at 9pm Eastern
- Second Number – Tuesday at 9pm Eastern
- Third Number – Wednesday at 9pm Eastern
- Fourth Number – Thursday at 9pm Eastern
- Fifth Number – Friday at 9pm Eastern
- Sixth Number – Saturday at 9pm Eastern
- Yotta Ball – Sunday at 9pm Eastern
The numbers will be drawn within the Yotta App. As stated below if the numbers on your Ticket match the randomly selected numbers you will receive cash prizes.
6. Prizes and Odds
*If the prize does not say “per ticket” then the prize listed will be split equally amongst all individuals at that level. For example, if there are 3 matches with the same number of numbers (including the Yotta Ball) the prize will be equally split amongst those three individuals.
**The grand prize will be paid either as a one-time, lump sum payment of $4,000,000 or as 40 graduated payments over 40 years that amount to $10,000,000 in total. The annual payments increase by 10% until the 40th and final payment.
***If there are multiple winners, the winners will split evenly, which will be paid to relevant winners over 12 equal monthly installments.
Prizes will be awarded to your Yotta Account once you have $25 on deposit in your account. If you do not have a Yotta Account you will be mailed a check. Prize is non-transferable and no substitution will be made except as provided herein at the Sponsor’s sole discretion.
