dollarfootball.com presents a series of online skill based prediction challenges ("Challenge") focused on professional football. Participants may test their skill and relative knowledge against other participants with the opportunity for the winner to receive prizes. The Challenge sponsor is Hashtag Buffalo LLC (“Sponsor”) and/or (“Challenge Entity")("Challenge Entities"). Prize recipients are identified at the sole discretion of the Challenge Sponsor and/or Challenge entity.
The challenge registration period begins July 1, 2013 at 12:01 am Eastern Time ("ET") ("Registration Period") with no determined end at this time . The Sponsor or Challenge Entity can declare the registration period ended at any time at their discretion.
To register and participate in any Challenge, visit www.dollarfootball.com (the “Website”) and enter picks through any available Challenge. Once registered, Entrants then submit Picks for each Game or Challenge, as reasonably detailed on the Website. After entering selections, Entrants must click the “Submit” button on the form to register the Picks. If Entrant does not submit the Picks, according to the website instructions, the Picks will not be valid. If Entrant wishes to make changes to Picks, Entrant may go back and change a Pick any time prior to each Game affected. No changes or revisions are permitted or possible once the selected player/game has begun. All information provided by Entrant becomes the property of Sponsor and/or Challenge Entity.
Beginning with the first scheduled professional football game of the 2013-2014 preseason, “Entrants” (as defined below) will have the opportunity to use their skill and knowledge of professional football to predict the winners of the games and/or enter into a fantasy football challenge (each, a “Game” and collectively, the “Games”) during twenty-five (25) weeks of the professional season (each week a “Challenge Week”) by using/entering www.dollarfootball.com. Entrants can participate in a Challenge at any point during the Registration Period. It's the Entrants sole discretion whether or not to participate or not participate in each Challenge Week.
Challenge is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States and Washington D.C., who are at least 18 years of age or the age of legal majority in the state of primary residence at time of entry (“Entrant”). Each Entrant must be the rightful owner or rightful account holder of any form of communication represented in the Entrant's entry including but not limited to the e-mail address, Twitter account, Facebook account. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of a winner, the winner will be deemed the person in whose name the Entrant initially identifies as the winner through the original registration form of communication/entry. Any Challenge is void where prohibited.
The full value of any prize or promotional site credit must be entered into active games prior to requesting any withdrawals.
Any money won with prize or promotional credit will be subjected to PayPal fees on withdrawal request.
No points will be awarded for ties. Each Entrant must pick a series of winning teams and/or a collection of player predictions in order to be awarded points. The Sponsor and/or Challenge Entity will have the final and sole authority to set/award points and/or create additional tie-breaker challenges.
In the event of a tie during any "pick 6" game type week, each tied entrant will have the final scores of teams they selected correctly to WIN totaled. If one entrant has a larger total sum than the other tied entrants, that entrant will be the winner of the tie breaker. Tie-breaker options are at the sole discretion of the Sponsor and/or Challenge Entity.
In the event of a tie during any "fantasy football" game type week, Entrants may be asked to predict the final score of the LAST Game played during the Challenge Week (“Tie-Breaker Game”) or tied Entrants may be asked to participate in a playoff the following week under the same terms of the tied Challenge. Tie-breakers are detailed in these official rules (“Official Rules”). Tie-breaker options are at the sole discretion of the Sponsor and/or Challenge Entity.
