The period from the Start Date to the End Date shall be known as the (“Contest Period”). Each week during the Contest Period there will be a weekly contest beginning on Sunday at 1:00PM ET, and ending at the conclusion of that week’s last Eligible Game as defined below (“Weekly Contest”).

and conditions of these Rules. Participants may enter as outlined in Section 6 below.

How to Enter. To enter the Contest, Participants must have a registered FanDuel.com account and enter
through the FanDuel.com website or using the FanDuel mobile application. Participants may enter the Weekly
Contest by selecting a team to win across all NFL games occurring on or after 1PM ET on Sunday of each
week (“Eligible Games”). For the avoidance of doubt, any games that occur before Sunday at 1PM ET (ie.
Thursday, Saturday or Sunday morning games) are excluded from the Contest. For example, if there are 15
Eligible Games in a week, Participants will need to pick a winner for each Eligible Game in order to enter
the Weekly Contest (“Entry”). Participants who do not enter an outcome for all Eligible Games in a week,
will not be eligible for that week’s Weekly Contest. Once an Entry is submitted, Participants may not
cancel or make any changes to their Entry. Each Participant must submit their Entry by 12:59 PM ET on
Sunday of each week.
- 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. No illegible, incomplete, forged, or altered entries will be accepted.
- Limit One (1) Entry per person per Weekly Contest during the Contest Period. Any instance of registering multiple accounts on FanDuel in order to gain more than one Entry into the Weekly Contest will result in automatic disqualification from the Contest as well as potential suspension from FanDuel.
Selection of Winners. For each Weekly Contest, a Participant must select the correct outcomes (e.g., which
team will win) for all Eligible Games in order to win a share of the weekly prize (“Weekly Prize”). At the
end of each Weekly Contest, all Participants that correctly choose all of the outcomes will split the
$10,000 Weekly Prize (“Cash Prize”).
- In the event an Eligible Game ends in a tie, Participants will be credited with selecting the correct outcome. In the event an Eligible Game is postponed, Participants will be credited with selecting the correct outcome.
- In the event that no Participant picks the correct outcomes of all Eligible Games in a Weekly Contest, that week’s Cash Prize will rollover into the prize pool for the next Weekly Contest. For example, if no Participants win the Cash Prize in week 1, the Cash Prize for week 2 will become $20,000. If no Participant picks the correct outcomes of all Eligible Games in the Weekly Contest for week 17, the week 17 Cash Prize will become the prize for a FanDuel fantasy football contest exclusively offered to Participants who entered the week 17 Weekly Contest.
- Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these Official Rules, the potential winner(s) will be declared the official “Winner(s)” of each Weekly Contest and will split the week’s Cash Prize. The purchase of any goods or services will not increase any Participant’s chances of winning. All decisions of the Sponsor regarding the Contest and the application of these Rules are final and binding.
- Any Cash Prize will be deposited into a Winner’s FanDuel account.
- In the event that a Winner in a Weekly Contest forfeits or is disqualified for any reason, resulting in there being no Winner for the Weekly Contest, that week’s Cash Prize will be added to the prize pool of the Weekly Contest following the week in which FanDuel discovers the potential Winner’s forfeiture or disqualification.
- Each Winner is solely responsible for all federal, state, and local taxes and other fees associated with his or her receipt and use of a Cash Prize. No substitution, assignment or transfer of prize is permitted, except by the Sponsor, who reserves the right to substitute the prize with another prize of greater or equal value if Cash Prize cannot be awarded as stated.
