Chipotle is getting in on the NBA Finals fun.

The chain announced on Wednesday that it will be giving away up to $1 million worth of free burritos — which is about 130,000 burritos — during the NBA Finals games by hiding a different keyword in their TV commercials during each game. 

Fans who catch the keyword can text it to 888-222 in order to get their free burrito, according to the announcement.

However, if the final three games are not played, Chipotle said it won’t give away more burritos, per the giveaway rules.

"The final games of the basketball season are arguably some of the most entertaining moments of the year," Chris Brandt, Chipotle’s chief marketing officer, said in a statement. "Along with the high-profile player matchups, off-court storylines, and fan interactions, our hidden code giveaway creates another 'game within the game' and elevates the viewing experience for our fans during breaks in the action."

Fans who want to get their own free burrito have to make sure they text the hidden code before the live telecast of the game ends or before Chipotle runs out of free burritos, the giveaway rules say.

According to the rules, the giveaway is open to residents of all 50 U.S. states and Washington, D.C., who are at least 13 years old or older. However, the giveaway is limited to one entry per person.
