    I don’t get how it works. I don’t see a “shotgun tab”. After I clicked “like’ a photo with a car covered in red squares came up and notice saying someone else had already called shotgun. When I hovered my mouse over some of the red squares it would show a name, I didn’t see my name. How do I play this? Don’t see any options to play it again, either. Help!

    • As you hover over the car and see other people’s names, click (left-click) and you should see a small rectangular box with your name and TAG or CANCEL. Click TAG and it will tell you if you were one of the gift card winners. The 1st person to TAG a car gets a $20 gift card and an entry in the car drawing. Others can still win an instant win prize of a $20 gift card. There’s supposed to be 5 different images each day, so TAG each car one time. At the end of the game there will be a drawing among the 50 Shotgun winners for the grand prize…so the idea here is to keep refreshing your page to win Shotgun and have a 1:50 chance at the car and money. Good luck!

        How does my name get added to a car? I saw it on one last night after hovering over many little red boxes. But when I left clicked, nothing happened. Today on another image it worked, but I didn’t win. So I just have to keep watching the State Farm page throught the day and click on “shotgun” on the left side of the page and that will add my name? Sigh, I do wish the folks who dream up this stuff would keep it simple. LOL

        • You might need to move your cursor around. If the cursor is too high on the image, you won’t see the rectangular box behind the words “Call SHOTGUN.” I just did it…left-clicked, clicked on “TAG,” but still didn’t win a gift card. I’ll keep trying.


  6. Haven’t won Shotgun but did win a $20 gift card. Was tired of the Time To Play Mag Easter egg hunt, so went over to the State Farm page and won. Yay! Thank you, Sweetie.

  7. WHOOOHOOO!!! Won the $20 dollar gift card!!! AWESOME!!!

  8. Hubby won a gift card, too.
