Entries are welcome through February 11, at .
The giveaway's rules remain the same as years past. A grand prize winner will be announced during halftime of Super Bowl LVI and at the end of the game – each winning $500,000. Rocket Mortgage will also award $50,000 for each scoring play during the Super Bowl. That's every score change whether it's a touchdown, extra point, two-point conversion, field goal or safety.
"Watching the Super Bowl has been a staple of American culture for the last 55 years and introducing the Rocket Mortgage Super Bowl Squares in 2020 has elevated that experience for millions of viewers across the country," said Bob Walters, CEO of Rocket Mortgage. "We love adding another exciting element for people through our squares sweepstakes – one of the largest giveaways in any sport. Past winners have had their lives transformed and we are eager to give more Americans that opportunity again this year."
For the past two years, millions of Americans – hardcore football fans and casual observers alike – have watched The Big Game more intently than usual, crossing their fingers for the chance to score big every time a team on the field scores during the game. Since the inaugural giveaway in 2020, Rocket Mortgage has awarded a total of $3.3 million in prize money to 29 fans across the country.
"Entering the Rocket Mortgage Super Bowl Squares Sweepstakes and winning $500,000 was a bright spot in a difficult year," said Derrick Collins, a Pennsylvania resident who was one of two grand prize winners in 2021. "When I entered the giveaway for fun, I let my mind wander to 'what if I won the grand prize?' but I never thought it would be me. I hope my story inspires others who are thinking about entering – it just might change your life."
Those hoping to win big can enter for free at RocketMortgageSquares.com. Sign up is easy. Participants select one of the 100 squares on a 10-by-10 grid. After the entry period closes, each row and column will be assigned a random number between zero and nine.
