Tallying Contest Points/Statistics:

BoltDraft™ will be responsible for tallying the Contest Points for each Contest based on the reporting of Player performance provided by the applicable League during the applicable Contest Duration. Please be advised that during the Contests, BoltDraft™ receives live scoring from its third party statistics providers. Live scoring statistics that appear during a Contest are subject to change by the applicable League after the conclusion of the applicable Game Day. Please be advised that, even in the event of a change to the statistics by the applicable League after the conclusion of the applicable Game Day, the applicable Player’s Contest Points on BoltDraft™ will not be updated and the Contest outcomes will not be revised. Please note that where a correction needs to be made after the conclusion of a Game Day due to a problem with the statistics feed, the Contest outcome (including payment of Prizes) may be reversed and Contests resettled correctly. ALL DETERMINATIONS WITH RESPECT TO CONTEST POINTS, WINNERS AND PRIZES WILL BE MADE IN BOLTDRAFT’S™ SOLE AND ABSOLUTE DISCRETION, AND WILL BE FINAL AND BINDING ON ALL PARTIES INVOLVED.

Single Winner Contests:

Where the Contest Page Rules indicate that the Contest will have a single winner, the Entrant with the most Contest Points at the end of the Contest Duration will be deemed the winner of that Contest. The winner of the Contest will receive the cash prize specified in the applicable Contest Page Rules (the “Prize”). If two (2) or more Entrants finish in a tie with the top Contest Point total at the end of the Contest Duration, the Prize amount shall be divided equally amongst all winners.

Contests with Multiple Winners:

Where the Contest Page Rules indicates that the Contest will have multiple winners, the designated number of Entrants with the most Contest Points at the end of the Contest Duration will be deemed the winners of that Contest, and the Prize totals shall be assigned to each winner depending on what place she/he finished. In case two (2) or more Entrants finish in a tie for any of the winning Contest Point totals at the end of the Contest Duration, the Prize amounts shall be divided equally amongst all winners with the same Contest Point total as if each were a winner of that tier’s Prize, as well as the Prize(s) for the next tier or tiers. For example, if 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in a given Contest includes Prizes of $500, $300 and $100, respectively, and two (2) Entrants tie for first place, then those two (2) Entrants shall receive $400 each ($500 + $300 divided by 2), and the Entrant that finished in 3rd place shall receive $100.

Withdrawals/Taxes:

In special cases only, BoltDraft™ may allow a second (2nd) account to be created by the same individual. You must receive express written permission from BoltDraft™ before opening a second (2nd) account. All determinations as to whether an individual may have more than one (1) account will be made in BoltDraft’s™ sole discretion and shall be final and binding on you. Penalties for utilizing more than one (1) account without prior authorization from BoltDraft™ will be assessed in BoltDraft’s™ sole discretion, , and may include closure of all applicable accounts and forfeiture of any Prize amounts that we determine to have been fraudulently obtained.

Access to the BoltDraft™ Offerings

While we try to ensure that the BoltDraft™ Offerings are functioning smoothly at all times, like any online service, we may periodically experience periods of outage or slow performance.

Contest Cancellation

BoltDraft™ reserves that right to cancel any Contests in our sole discretion, for any reason and without restriction. These reasons may include where we believe that, due to problems with the BoltDraft™ Offerings or due to events affecting the actual Games, there would be a negative impact on the integrity of the applicable Contest(s).

BoltDraft™ may modify these Contest Rules, in its sole discretion, by posting amended Contest Rules on the Site and in the App interface, as applicable, or by sending an e-mail to the e-mail addresses associated with registered Users.Such notice shall be effective immediately after it is posted or e-mailed, as applicable; provided, however, that no such modification or termination shall affect Prizes that are pending, or that have already been awarded, as of the date of the modification or termination notice, as applicable.
