We now have updates on the London sweepstakes competition. And the verdict? Unfortunately, only some Americans are eligible to enter. But if you reside in certain counties of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, California, Florida, Texas, or Illinois, here are the rules and regulations (see if you’re in an area of your state that makes you eligible for this sweepstakes!)
