Default New York, Florida, and Quebec Not Eligible for Contests?

I'd heard that some states were not eligible for Ganz contests, so I had to go look it up. Official rules state that if you live in NY, FL or Quebec you are not eligible for prizes from Ganz contests.

WHAT??!??

Now, I'm glad I don't live in those states, and it may be a state law and not Ganz' fault for this restriction. However, that means that unless a winner sells their code on eBay or something, residents of FL, NY, and Quebec will never even have a chance to win a Sparkling Pegasus. That just seems WRONG to me. I can't believe Ganz would run contests with a prize that some people have no hopes of winning.

Did you know about this?

Yes I definitely know about this because I live in NY. It makes steam come out of my ears it makes me so angry.
From all of the info that I've found on the web, NY (not sure if Florida and Quebec are the same) requires extra paperwork to be done by the contest holder (Ganz) in order for an online contest to be legal. On some sites it even stated that the company would have to pay a fee, but that seems to only be for prizes over a certain dollar amount (approx $500.)
I can't imagine that it is so much extra work to legalize the contests in these areas. So, apparently, it is OK for Ganz to accept our money for virtual items, we just can't win them. AAArghhh!!

This rule affects me because I live in Florida. Now, I am about a 1 hour drive away from states like Alabama, Mississippi, a few hours from Louisiana.

Remember that math question they always have?

If that wasn't present, there would be more places that could not enter.

It changes what the contest is categorized as.

All in the local laws.

Yes, being from NY I am ineligible to "win" the sparkling Pegasus. This is why I am so furious over the fact that they secretly decided to not offer it as an eStore pet. I consider it to be blatant false advertising that several months ago they officially announced it as an eStore pet on their own official news site. They have since announced only via twitter, which not everyone has access to, that it will never ne available for purchase but only awarded as a prize. So I am out of luck to obtain a pet that I was looking forward to. It just plain stinks and I wish there was something that could be done for the thousands of us who had every intention of spending our hard earned money on this virtual pet.

Default Re: New York, Florida, and Quebec Not Eligible for Contests?

I knew about Florida, but Quebec and New York? I agree, that's just wrong. New York , the whole country of Quebec and Florida all has a huge population, and I'm sure many WI Members live there. Also, WW Members. That is so disappointing, and I feel that Ganz need to try to let those places compete in the contests. It's so unfair!!!
