3. HOW TO PLAY THE GAMES?

3.1 To enter a Game, you must:

3.1.1 log in to your Account on the Platform;

3.1.2 find the next Game in the ‘Lobby’ when logged in;

3.1.3 enter your correct score prediction for each Match for the applicable Game (the “Picks”); and

3.1.4 confirm and submit your entry before the specified closing time and date which will be an hour before the scheduled start of the first Match, unless stated otherwise. In the event we advertise a maximum cap on the total number of entries, the closing time and date will be the earlier of (1) the maximum cap on entries being reached; or (2) an hour before the scheduled start of the first Match.

3.2 After you have submitted your Picks you may not edit them, even if the first Match in the Game has not begun. It is your responsibility to check that the selections you submit are correct before confirming your Game entry.

3.3 All confirmed Game entries are subject to our approval and we may, in our sole and absolute discretion, decide to refuse or stop entries to a Game at any time. If this applies, you will be notified that your Game entry has not been successful.

3.4 Any entries submitted after the closing time and date set out in paragraph 3.1.4 are automatically refused and, in the event a technical glitch allows submission, will be considered void. The number, time and date of your submission will be determined solely by our back-office records.

4. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO ENTER?

4.1 Entry to each Game is currently free, unless stated otherwise. Ordinary data charges may however apply in using the internet to access our Platform.

5. HOW MANY TIMES CAN I ENTER?

5.1 Subject to paragraph 3.3 above, you may enter each Game once.

5.2 If we suspect that any one individual has made or may have made more than one entry to a Game then we may disqualify all entries that we suspect have been made by that individual.

5.3 If we suspect that any one individual has or may have created more than one Account to submit additional entries to any Game then we may block all of that individual’s Accounts from submitting Game entries, and further suspend or close the Accounts as appropriate.

5.4 When assessing whether to disqualify any entries on the grounds that the maximum number of entries per individual may have been exceeded, we may, at our sole discretion, base our decision on the user’s email address, name, IP address or any other information, data, or any other variables or factors.

6. HOW DO I CHECK MY ENTRY AND THE ENTRY’S OF OTHERS?

6.1 Game entries accepted by us will be provided with a unique reference number and a copy of the Game entry will be available in the ‘Leaderboard’ tab at the bottom of the page when logged into your Account. On the leaderboard page you can also view the entries of other users.

6.2 Where there is any disagreement as to the details or status of a Game entry, our records will be the primary source of evidence.

7. HOW DOES LEADERBOARD SCORING WORK?

7.1 A single point is allocated to each Match.

7.2 Each correctly predicted score with accumulate one point. Each incorrect score prediction will accumulate zero points.

7.3 Simply, the users with the most points will occupy the highest positions in the leaderboard. Unless advertised otherwise, the leaderboard is for ‘bragging rights’ only and no prizes are payable to the users who feature highest.

7.4 In the event that more than one user accumulates the same amount of points in a Game, the leaderboard position will be shared and subsequent positions will be adjusted to reflect multiple users holding a single leaderboard position. For example:

7.4.1 if two users finished with the equal most amount of points, the user with the second most amount of points would finish third;

7.4.2 if two users finished with the equal most amount of points and another two users finished with the second most amount of points, the user with the third most amount of points would finish fifth.
