Promotional Rules & Guidelines

The Forty-Niner Shops host a variety of promotional acitivities such as opportunity drawings, contests, and sweepstakes. These activites allow students and faculty members of CSULB to feel a sense of campus inclusion. Below, we have defined these promotional activites as well as provided The Forty-Niner Shops' general guidelines.

  • Opportunity drawings: An opportunity drawing involves a general and indiscriminate distributing of the tickets that does not require any of the participants to pay for a chance to win.  This fact is clearly advertised within the promotion. (State of California Department of Justice) 
  • Contests: A contest involves skills or a combination of chance or skill in order to win the prize, and may be conditioned wholly or partly on a payment of some value. (California Department of Consumer Affairs)
  • Sweepstakes: A sweepstakes is a game of chance requiring no purchase or any other payment in order to participate in the game. (California Department of Consumer Affairs)
