"Participant" means a person who is eligible to participate in the Promotion and registers for or participates in the Promotion;
"Promotion" means a tipping competition for any Season of Matches, or a given Round in a Season, of any Code run on the Web Site whereby winning entries are based on the Results of Matches at the conclusion of the relevant Round or Season, as the case may be;
"Results" are the results of Matches as officially determined by the relevant Code in accordance with the rules of that Code following the completion of a Round;

3 The Promotion is open to residents of Australia and New Zealand. Entry into the Promotion is free. An individual may only be eligible for prizes if they registered as a Participant once per Code per Season and therefore may only place one set of tips per Round per Code per Season. If there is a dispute as to the identity of an applicant or Participant, the Promoter reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine their identity.
4 Entry into the competition commences 11am 20th January 2020.

Entry for the NRL competition closes 8 September 2020. Entry into any Promotion is considered to occur when a Participant submits one or more tip(s) for any of the Matches available for any Round.
5 The Promoter however reserves the right not to accept registration for any Participant if the registration contains anything slanderous or defamatory or is otherwise unsightly in any way, as determined by the Promoter in its absolute discretion. Likewise, the Participant’s participation in the Promotion can be withdrawn due to unsightly conduct during the course of the Promotion, or after the Promotion has ended but before the prizes have been awarded, at the Promoter’s absolute discretion.
6 To enter any Promotion for any particular Code, a Participant must:
a) register their details via the on-line registration form located on the Web Site
b) for each Round, make a selection of the teams the Participant tips to win and the margin by which they expect the winning team’s score to exceed the losing team’s score for each specified Margin Game, and submit that entry via the Web Site.

A margin is required for the Margin Game in each Round as specified on the Web Site.

11 A Participant may make or change a tip for a given Match in a Round at any time up until the closing time of that Match for that Round as outlined on the Web Site. For the purpose of determining Round results, the date and time of tipping for a Round will be deemed to be the most recent submission / amendment.
12 If a Participant does not submit tips for a given Match in a Round, a default Score will be allocated via the following method:
a) If the Participant has not entered one or more tips for the Round, they will be deemed to have picked the away team for the untipped Matches in that Round.
b) In the case where a Participant does not submit a Margin tip for a Margin Game, their Margin tipped for that Margin Game will be deemed to be twenty (20)
c) Should a Participant enter the Promotion after the commencement of any Round in the Season, then the Participant will receive the lowest Score for each Round missed and a Weekly Margin of twenty (20) for each Round missed.
13 In order to determine the results in each Round, Participants will be ranked:
a) firstly by their Score for the Round, where the highest Score has the highest rank;
b) then, in the case of a tie, by each Participant’s Weekly Margin for the same Round, where the lowest Weekly Margin has the highest rank;
c) then, in the case of a further tie, the Participant who completed their tips for that round the earliest will be deemed to have the higher rank.
Weekly rankings for a given Round will be determined within 48 hours of the last Match of the Round ending. In the case where a prize is awarded to a weekly winner, the prize will be awarded to the Participant with the highest rankings, in descending order, based on this clause 13. Participants are ineligible to win a weekly prize unless they have tipped for all Matches in a Round.
14 The end of Season rankings for each Code will be determined:
a) firstly by the Participant’s total Score for all Rounds, where the highest Score has the highest rank;
b) then, in the case of a tie, by each Participant’s Accumulative Margin for the Season, where the lowest Accumulative Margin has the highest rank;
c) then, in the case of a further tie, the Participant who initially registered to participate in a current Season has the higher rank.
End of Season rankings will be determined within 48 hours of the final Round of the Season being completed. In the case where prizes are awarded to Season place winners, the prizes will be awarded to the Participants with the highest rankings, in descending order, based on this clause 14. NRL participants are ineligible to win a major prize unless they have tipped for 1 or more Matches in at least 16 different Rounds of the Season.
