Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why does flapanthers5050.com require my location and/or why am I receiving the prompt to allow the website to use my current location?"
Your current location is required to confirm eligibility. The Raffle will be offered to individuals located within a 75 mile radius of the BB&T Center (the "Raffle Area") at the time of entry. Online entry is void outside the Raffle Area and where prohibited by law, rule, or regulation.
Q. What if I already selected "Don't Allow"?
Reloading the page should cause you to be prompted to share your location again. If you have specified that you never want to share your location, you will need to go into your settings to allow. See below for instructions.
Q. What if I receive the following prompt: "You must allow your browser to share you location to participate, Please click "OK" to reload this page, then be sure to allow your browser to share your location to share your location when prompted"?
The browser should reload the page and ask you to share location upon loading. Note: In some browsers, the popup may say "close" instead of "OK"
Q. What happens if I did not receive my tickets or I entered the incorrect email and did not print my tickets? How can I get my tickets resent?
