3.5 The Promoter reserves the right to refuse or disqualify any incomplete Entries if it has reasonable grounds for believing that an Entrant has contravened any of these terms and conditions.
3.6 To the extent permitted by applicable law, all Entries become our property and will not be returned.
4.1 Each Competition will run for a specified period. Please see each Competition for details of start and end times and dates (‘Promotion Period(s)’).
5.1.a MegaPrize Competition: The position of the centre of the ball will be determined after the close of the Competition by an independent Panel of Judges (sporting experts appointed by the Promoter – the ‘Judge’) using their sporting experience (‘Judge’s Position’). In certain cases and at the discretion of the Promoter, the position of the Judge’s Position may be determined by the Judge before the Competition starts, and will immediately be encrypted and stored securely on our database.
5.1.b Within forty eight (48) hours of the end of the respective Competition, the Judge’s Position will be computed against the database of coordinates to mathematically calculate which of the valid and eligible Entries received by the Promoter is closest to the Judge’s Position, and therefore the winning Entrants (the ‘Winners’) of the prizes. The Winners will be the entrants who correctly identify, or if no one is correct, who are closest to, the Judge’s Position. In respect of all Competitions, the Judge may also select the next nearest Entries, runners up Entries, free Entries who will be adjudged to be the next Entries (after the Winners) closest to the Judge’s Position (‘Runners Up’, ‘Free Winner’ ). For the avoidance of doubt, distance will be measured by calculating the straight line distance from each valid and eligible Entry to the Judge’s Position (‘Distance’).
5.1.c In the event that there are two or more Entrants with valid and eligible Entries that are equally close to or exactly match the Judge’s Position (each a ‘Tie Break Entry’), the entrants to whom such Tie Break Entries belong, identified by their YippeeYou Account (the ‘Tie Break Entrants’) will participate in a tie break mechanic to determine the Winners for such Competition as follows:
(a) Tie Break Scenario 1 – in the event that each of the Tie Break Entrants has made multiple Entries to the Competition: in Tie Break Scenario 1, the other Entries to the Competition made by each Tie Break Entrant using the same YippeeYou Account as their respective Tie Break Entry will be used to determine the Winners as follows – the Winners will be determined by calculating the Distance of the next closest Entry to the Judge’s Position (excluding the Tie Break Entry) (‘TB1 Entries’) made by each Tie Break Entrant in that Competition (‘Tie Break 1’). In the event that a single Entrant has more than one Entry involved in a Tie Break, each Entry will be considered individually and eligible to be the next closest entry to each other. In the event that Tie Break 1 results in a tie break, the Tie Break 1 process will be repeated until there are no more TB1 Entries to judge. For the avoidance of doubt, it is not necessary for the Tie Break Entrants to have made the same number of Entries. However, judging under Tie Break 1 will cease when there are no longer sufficient TB1 Entries to compare. For example, if the first Tie Break Entrant has made a total of 5 Entries and the second Tie Break Entrant has made a total of 10 Entries, judging will cease after a maximum of 4 rounds of Tie Break 1 because the first Tie Break Entrant has no further TB1 Entries to compare. If a winner cannot be determined by using the Tie Break 1 process, such tied entrants (‘TB1 Tie Break Entrants’) will participate in Tie Break 2 (defined in 5.3(b) below);
(b) Tie Break Scenario 2 – in the event that one or more of the Tie Break Entrants has only made one (1) Entry to the Competition or in the event that Tie Break 1 results in a tie break: the Tie Break Entrants or the TB1 Tie Break Entrants (as relevant) will be asked to take part in another Spot the Ball Challenge using a new sporting photograph in order to determine a single Winner (the ‘Tie Break 2’). Tie Break 2 will be entered and judged on the same terms as the original Spot the Ball Challenge and there will be no additional payment due. In the event that Tie Break 2 results in a tie break, the Tie Break 2 process will be repeated with the respective tied Entrants until there is a single Winner. In the event that a single Entrant has more than one Entry involved in a Tie Break, each Entry will be eligible for a separate Tie Break 2 Entry. If the Promoter is unable to contact one or more of the Tie Break Entrants or the TB1 Tie Break Entrants (as relevant) for Tie Break 2, within three (3) days (which may be extended at the sole discretion of the Promoter) of identifying such Tie Break Entrants (or TB1 Tie Break Entrants as relevant), Tie Break 2 will be concluded without that particular Tie Break Entrant or the TB1 Tie Break Entrant (as relevant). All Tie Break Entrants, including those that we were unable to contact will be automatically allocated a tie break prize in accordance with rule 7.1. Tie Break 1 and Tie Break 2, together referred to as “Tie Break”.
5.1.d Runners Up and Free Winner in the Competitions will be chosen using the same process as set out in accordance with rules 5.1.b and 5.1.c.
5.2 WOW Prize Competitions: The correct answer will be determined prior to close of the Competition and verified using an independent service provider. Within forty eight (48) hours of the end of the respective Competition, all eligible Entries received by the Promoter during the Promotion Period will be reviewed, and all entrants that correctly answered the question will be entered into a random draw to select the First Prize winner(s) and any other prize winner(s) if applicable. The draw will be conducted and verified by the independent service provider.
5.3 The Winners, the Runners Up, the Free Winner, the Tie Break Entrants in Competitions are all referred to as ‘Winner(s)’.
5.4 The Promoter will attempt to contact Winners using the telephone numbers and email address provided at the time of Entry (or as subsequently updated) and held securely in our database. It is the Entrant’s sole responsibility to check and update these details. If for any reason they are taken down incorrectly, the Promoter will not be held responsible. Entrants must carefully check their contact details have been recorded correctly.
5.5 If for any reason the Promoter is unable to contact a Winner within 5 days (which may be extended at the sole discretion of the Promoter) of the end of a Competition or the Winner fails to confirm acceptance of the prize or the Winner is disqualified as a result of contravening any of these terms and conditions, the Winner will forfeit the prize and it will be awarded to the next qualifying Entrant, as defined in the judging process. For the avoidance of doubt once the prize has been forfeited the original Winner, Runners Up, Free Winner or Tie Break Entrants will have no further claims against the Promoter.
5.6 In the event that the Promoter closes a Competition early, the Winner will be selected from all valid and eligible Entries received by the Promoter prior to the date of closure, except that the Promoter reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to close a Competition early without selecting a Winner. In the event that a Competition is closed without selecting a Winner, the Promoter will give all entrants Bonus Credit to enable them to replay equivalent tickets in a subsequent competition. The Promoter also reserves the right at its sole discretion to extend the closing date of any Competition.

Any failure to meet these obligations may result in the Winners being disqualified and the Promoter choosing an alternate winner.
6.2 All Winners will also be required to provide photographs and/or pose for photographs and videos, which may be used in future marketing and public relations by the Promoter in connection with the Competition and in identifying them as a winner of a Competition.
6.3 Following receipt and verification of the details requested above by the Promoter, the Winners will be contacted in order to make arrangements for delivery of the prize. At this point the Winners must choose between the prizes available (as detailed in the Competition prize information on the Website) and notify the Promoter of their choice in writing.

(a) MEGA Prize Competition Tie Break Entrants: For the avoidance of doubt, the prizes won by the Winners will be those attributed to the original entry position as determined in the original competition judging and not any subsequent entries that may be used to establish the Winners.
7.2 Prize Competition Cash Alternative: A Prize Competition Cash Alternative can be requested, subject to it being available for that competition. If available, the Cash Alternative is 80% of the prize voucher value. If, either a competition has to close early of technical or other reasons, or closes before enough entries have been submitted sufficient to fund the value of the advertised prize(s), a cash alternative of 70% of the competition net revenues, will be awarded to the winners on a pro-rata basis according to the advertised prize(s).
7.3 Runners Up and Free Winner Prizes: The number of Runners Up and Free Winners and the prize values for Competitions run by the Promoter, will be specified in the details of each Competition.
