What do we mean by 'up to' ?
We've been doing this a long time (since 2000 to be exact), so we know your ticket will be dismissed. But, in the unlikely event that it isn't, we'd like to contribute some cash toward it, up to a value of $250. Basically, if your ticket is $250 or less, we'll give you the full value of your ticket, if it's more than that, we'll give you $250. It's really that simple.View the full terms and conditions
