Great question! A “restricted area” is a state, province, or country that restricts or potentially restricts - as some laws are ambiguous - competing for cash prizes online.

When visiting tradeoff.com, if you see a “restricted area” message, your IP address originates from an area that restricts or potentially restricts participation on competition websites like TradeOff™. It is the responsibility of each user to make sure that your local laws allow you to participate on TradeOff™. Please refer to the TradeOff™ Terms of Use for more information about restricted areas.

The following states are currently under the restricted list:
(*Updated as of May 24th, 2019)

Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Montana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont and Washington.
