    Good morning friends,

    When you enter a Meretz drawing, how do you know if you won?

    Please let me know.

    Best,
    Ephraim Erb

    You get a prompt in the app and you get an email.
    Please note that the prompt in the app gives you a link to a legalize waiver (no liability for meretz etc) which you need to fill in before they notify Portalarium.
    So if you missed the prompt or block apps linkage then the only way to get said waiver is to email them back and ask for a new copy sent to your email.

    Note that the legalize waiver contains things not listed in the FAQ nor Terms etc in the app, like that you need to agree that they can publish your name, city and image etc.

    The legalize is typical that in the US when you hire a lawyer to write the stuff, then they usually overdo it to show value for the cost, which can actually hurt the legality claims in it. Which is a weird but culturally typical thing over yonder since the point seems to be to hinder litigation but not necessary win it.
    For instance the non-liability stuff waiver and the local tax stuff is proper and needs to be in it, but the non-attached rules compliance (try using the app to find the referred "official rules" for sweepstakes, they are not there) and there being no mention in the app when entering sweepstakes of the publication of your name and city of residence in the rules/terms but rather only in the waiver is not exactly kosher.


    If there is no "click to expand" in the quote above then refresh the page - mine took two refreshes before showing.

    You need to request Meretz to disclose that information in writing, since it is Meretz (NOT Portalarium!) that is sponsoring the drawings.

    Yes. I’ve won one of the houses.
    Hence why I have access to that legalize stuff which isn’t otherwise publicly available.
    Port is informed as well since they are the ones handing out the prize.
    In the setup you can see that Meretz assume that the game makes the announcement hence the legalize.
    Where the first winners were indeed announced by Berek at that time, mostly on twitter though and less so in the forums.

    I won a house back in 2018. I received an email a few weeks after the period of the contest (don't remember any notification in the app but I might have missed it). Then they sent me a declaration of compliance and release which I signed and mailed back. And that was it.

    The funny thing is: when I wrote this I also won and didn't know it, as you can read here ;)
