How does each jackpot work for the 2023 season?

50/50 Jackpots are split into two categories for the 2023 season:

Homestand Jackpots: From May to August, you’ll have the chance to win during every Blue Jays homestand. All ticket sales are combined over the course of each homestand, with the winning ticket being awarded at the end of the final home game. The more tickets you buy, the better your chances!

Mega Jackpots: To celebrate both the start and end of the regular season, Jays Care has introduced its Amazing April and Super September Jackpots. Rather than awarding a winner at the end of each homestand, these mega jackpots combine sales from the entire month. During last season’s Super September jackpot, one lucky fan walked away with a grand prize of more than $3.9 million, the largest jackpot total in MLB history!
