Prior to the Contest Start Time, Participants must select five teams participating in the Tournament (“Entry”). The sum of the Tournament seeds for the five teams making up the Entry must be twenty (20) or greater. For example, if a Participant’s Entry involves a 1-seed, 2-seed, 3-seed, 5-seed and 9-seed, then the sum of those seeds would be twenty (20), and the Entry would be eligible for the Contest.

    1. Sponsor shall not be liable for any problems that occur during the entry process, including without limitation, late, incomplete, delayed, undelivered, or misdirected entries, and shall not have any obligation to advise an entrant of an incomplete, invalid, or undeliverable submission.

    2. Limit One (1) Entry per person during the Contest Period.
  7. Selection of Winners. To win, a Participant must accumulate points based on Tournament games won by the teams in his or her Entry. The amount of points earned for a Tournament win increases with each round of the Tournament. Further, the points earned for a Tournament win by a team in an Entry will be multiplied by such winning team’s Tournament seed. Points will be awarded for wins in a given round as follows:

    Tournament Round

    Points Earned

    First Round (Round of 64)

    10 points multiplied by team seed

    Second Round (Round of 32)

    25 points multiplied by team seed

    Sweet Sixteen

    50 points multiplied by team seed

    Elite Eight

    100 points multiplied by team seed

    Final Four

    250 points multiplied by team seed

    Championship

    500 points multiplied by team seed


    For example, if a team in a Participant’s Entry wins in the Second Round, and such team is an 8-seed in the Tournament, the Participant will earn 200 points for that win (25 points x 8). Once a team has been eliminated from the Tournament, Participants will not earn any further points for that team.

    After the Contest End Date, Participants will win prizes based on the number of points accumulated. All Participants who accumulate 400 or more points will win a voucher into a FanDuel contest (“Voucher Prize”). All Participants who accumulate 2500 or more points will win a share of $20,000 in cash (“Cash Prize”). The Cash Prize will be split evenly among all Participants who accumulate 2500 or more points.
