GCI & Alaska Airlines Send AK to Vegas


September 30 – November 30, 2013



The promotion is open to all Alaska residents, 21 years or older on the date of the contest, except the employees and immediate families (spouses and parents, siblings, and children and their spouses) of GCI and Alaska Airlines, their affiliates or subsidiaries, their advertising agencies, and any other company involved with the design, production, execution, or distribution of promotion materials. For this promotion, an Alaska resident is defined as an individual having either a valid Alaska Driver’s License, proof of receipt of either a 2011 or later Alaska Permanent Fund dividend check, or a valid Alaska Voter Registration Card.  This promotion is open to Alaska residents only.  No purchase of goods or services is necessary for eligibility.


How to Participate

Alaska residents may enter to win the promotion prizes through the www.gci.com/vegas website.  Once on the site customers will fill out a form which requests First Name, Last Name, Email Address, Contact Phone number and Mailing Address.  Once that form is completed a prize wheel will appear on the screen and the customer will “spin the wheel.”  Different prizes are assigned to different slices of the wheel.  Once the customer has won, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address they provided.  The email will confirm that they have been entered to win the grand prize as well as any smaller prize they have won.  Customers can then bring that email in to any GCI store or call customer service to redeem for prizes or services.  One month of free service prizes include Simply Share mobile data, GCI TV and internet plans.  Credit will be applied for new services after 60 days of active service.

No purchase necessary to play the Spin To Win game.

Only one spin per email address will be accepted. Multiple entries by any individual will be eliminated by comparing name, contact phone number and mailing addresses provided. Online entries will be accepted dated through November 29, 2013 at 11:59pm.



Two winners will be selected by random drawing from all entries entered from September 30th through November 16th, 2013.  The first drawing will take place at the Sullivan Arena at the Alaska Aces vs. Las Vegas Wranglers hockey game which starts at 7:15pm.

The remaining winners will be selected by random drawing from all entries entered from September 30th through November 30th, 2013 on December 1st at the GCI offices at 5151 Fairbanks Street Anchorage, Alaska.

  • Award is:
    • 2 Round trip tickets on the inaugural Alaska Airlines flight from Anchorage to Las Vegas which departs on December 19th and returns on December 22nd, 2013.  Estimated value of $1,250 times two tickets for a total of $2,500.
    • One room for 3 nights at the Bellagio Casino in Las Vegas.  Estimated value of $159 per night for a total of $477.00

Odds of being awarded the trip depend upon the number of valid entries received. The drawing will be conducted by individuals whose decisions in all matters relating to it are final. GCI reserves the right to change the start date, end date, and duration of the promotion at any time.  Entrants are only eligible to win the grand prize one time.  Should their entry be selected by random in both the first and second grand prize drawing, only one grand prize will be awarded and another entrant’s name will be drawn.

The winner will be contacted by phone and email within 24 hours of the date of the drawings.  Should the winner not be reached by phone within two (2) days, a new winner will be selected from all qualified entrants.  Changes will be posted on this GCI website at www.gci.com/contests/vegas.
