HOW TO PLAY AND WIN:
After successful login to the game, navigate to the “Make Picks” page. On the “Make Picks” page, Players will have the option to begin building a roster of professional athletes that are eligible to play that day. Players will be asked to complete the empty roster when first entering the Game. Only the professional sports listed in the empty roster and the professional athletes listed in the Game are eligible for a Player’s roster. Players earn points for the Game based on the performance of the athletes on the Player’s roster and statistical results as defined in Section 6 (“Scoring”) below. If a Player fails to fill all six (6) spots in the roster during any day of the Game, Scoring will be determined with the number of roster spots actually filled. Sports that may comprise the empty roster each day include professional football, professional baseball, professional basketball, professional hockey, professional golf association, and the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing. Sports are only made available when games are in-season for that particular sport with games occurring on that day and are offered in the sole discretion of the Sponsor. Each Player will have the same number and composition of eligible sports to complete their roster, but athlete availability for each sport will be determined based on the scheduled start time of the game, and the time the Player accesses the Game.
Every day during the Monthly Contests (defined below), Players can earn points and improve their standing within the Monthly Contest. Players are not required to play every day of the Game Period and a Player’s score will not be affected if he or she does not build a roster on any particular day. For each Monthly Contest, the Players that have placed in the top 50 of all Players are eligible for a prize, as designated below in Section 8.
Each day, Players may build a roster that consists of up to 6 professional athletes for available sports (each, a Pick) up to 5 minutes before the scheduled start time of the corresponding game (the “Deadline”). After the Deadline, Picks for that game are locked and cannot be edited.
Once a Pick is made and the Deadline has passed, a Player may not remove that athlete from their roster.
The Game begins on February 18, 2016 at approximately 9:00 a.m. ET. Each month during the Game will be a separate game (each, a “Monthly Contest”). There will be eleven (11) Monthly Contests. Each new Monthly Contest will begin on the 1st day of each month at approximately 12:00 am ET and will end at 11:59pm ET on the last day of the month, except the first month which runs February 18-February 29, 2016.
