The raffle is void where prohibited by law.
  • Releases: By purchasing a ticket, each Ticket Holder releases Buckhorn, its directors, officers, employees and agents from any and all liability with respect to the raffle, including but not limited to the selection process and the interpretation and application of the rules, and from any and all liability for injuries, loss, or damages of any kind caused by any prize or resulting from acceptance, possession, use or misuse of any prize. Each ticket holder agrees that their name, likeness, and any statements made by them regarding the prize may be disclosed to and used by the news media and may otherwise be used by Buckhorn for advertising or publicity purposes without compensation.
