If your employer is offering more than one day off and you buy more than one ticket then you have the chance to win more than one day off! You are not automatically excluded from the remaining days off available after winning one.

No you can’t. The Big Day Off is designed to give you the chance to do anything you want for a day, not to make a few extra dollars.

Winners are decided by random using the Big Day Off website. No person has any influence over who wins.

On the first weekday in July the computer will do its thing and select the winners for each day off on offer. After this has happened we’ll send you an email to let you know. We’ll also send an email to your boss with the names of the winners, just to keep you honest!
