B. Entry into the Contest

1. To enter the Contest individuals must officially register through their DraftKings account, either at https://sportsbook.draftkings.com/pools, or on the DraftKings mobile application. Individuals can enter the Contest through the Pools Lobby. The entry period will begin on 7/11/2022 and close at 1:00 p.m. ET on the Sunday of the first week of the 2022-2023 NFL regular season (currently scheduled for September 11, 2022). The Contest has an entry fee of one hundred dollars ($100). Contestants may make up to ten (10) entries into the Contest. Each of a Contestant’s entries will be treated independently from one another. There is no maximum number of Contestants who may enter the Contest.

C. Operation of the Contest

1. Each Contestant must select one (1) NFL team each week of the 2022-2023 NFL regular season. For purposes of this Contest, a week of the NFL regular season runs from Wednesday to Tuesday. In the event the team a Contestant selects for the given week wins or ties, that Contestant will remain in the Contest; however, in the event the team a Contestant selects for the given week loses, that Contestant is eliminated from the Contest. Contestants may only pick each NFL team once during the Contest. In the event a Contestant fails to make a selection for a given week of the 2022-2023 NFL regular season, that Contestant will be eliminated from the Contest.

2. Under no circumstances may a Contestant select a team or modify their selection after the start of the selected team’s game. For all Sunday games starting on or after 1:00 p.m. ET and all Monday games (or Tuesday games in the event of postponements to this day), a Contestant must make or modify their weekly selection by 1:00 p.m. ET of that Sunday, regardless of the game’s start time or day. For all other games, Contestants may make or modify their selection for a given week of the Contest up until the start time of the selected team’s game. In the event the selected team’s game is delayed or postponed to a later week of the regular season or the selected team’s game is canceled, the selection will be counted as a loss.

3. Contestants must make their weekly selection through the DraftKings website or mobile application. Selections cannot be submitted by email, phone, or in person. A selection in the Contest cannot be made by any individual other than the owner of the DraftKings account that entered the Contest (i.e., no proxy play allowed). To make or modify the weekly selection, a Contestant must be located in the state of Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, or Wyoming at the time the Contestant is making or modifying the weekly selection.

4. DraftKings will provide a public Contest board, which will record all selections made by each Contestant. A Contestant’s selection will not appear on the public Contest board until all picks for that week have locked. Contestants’ usernames will be posted to the public Contest board.

5. In the event the 2022-2023 NFL regular season is modified or shortened to eleven (11) weeks or fewer, or in the event the 2022-2023 NFL regular season is canceled prior to the conclusion of week twelve (12) of the 2022-2023 NFL regular season, the Contest will be canceled, the Prize (as defined below) will not be paid, and DraftKings will refund the entry fee(s) to all eligible Contestants. The preceding sentence shall not apply in the event a single Winner (as defined below) was determined prior to such cancellation or modification of the 2022-2023 NFL regular season. In the event the 2022-2023 NFL regular season is modified or shortened but continues for twelve (12) weeks or more or the 2022-2023 NFL regular season is canceled after the conclusion of week twelve (12) of the 2022-2023 NFL regular season, Winner(s) will be determined in accordance with these Rules.

D. Contest Winner and Prizes

1. The “Prize Pool” for the Contest consists of all Contestant entry fees, less $6 per entry (six percent (6%) of each entry fee) for administrative fees. The amount of the Prize Pool for the Contest will depend on the number of Contestants who enter the Contest, provided that the Contest has a guaranteed Prize Pool of no less than ONE MILLION DOLLARS ($1,000,000).

2. In the event only one (1) Contestant remains in the Contest after any given week of the Contest, the Contest shall be deemed concluded and, subject to these Rules, such Contestant shall be deemed the winner of the Contest (“Winner”), and the entire Prize Pool will be awarded to the Winner.

3. In the event no Contestants remain in the Contest after a given week of the Contest, the Contest shall be deemed concluded, and, subject to these Rules, all Contestants who survived the prior round of the Contest shall be deemed the Winners. In the event more than one (1) Contestant made correct selections for all weeks of the 2022-2023 NFL regular season, and provided the Contest was not canceled in accordance with Section C(5), the Contest shall be deemed concluded, and, subject to these Rules, all Contestants who made correct selections for all weeks of the 2022-2023 NFL regular season shall be deemed the Winners. In the event of multiple Winners, the Prize Pool will be split equally among all Winners.

4. In order to claim the Prize Pool or a portion of the Prize Pool (each, a “Prize”) in the event there are multiple Winners, the Winner(s) must execute all documents as DraftKings may reasonably request and respond in a timely manner to DraftKings’ reasonable requests to facilitate Prize fulfillment. In the event a Winner is not able to meet or violates these Rules or the DraftKings Sportsbook Terms of Use, as determined by DraftKings in its sole discretion, that Winner may not be entitled to the Prize, or to any other prize, compensation, or monetary value whatsoever, as determined by DraftKings in its sole discretion, and DraftKings will have no further obligation to that Winner.

5. The Winner(s) may be taxed on the fair market value of their Prize depending on applicable law, and all such tax liability is the responsibility of the Winner(s).
