SHOSTREAK 2016 OFFICIAL RULES
No Purchase Necessary. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED
SHOSTREAK is a sweepstakes offering prizes to registered players who correctly predict the winners in a series of boxing bouts during the Promotion Period. For example, when a player selects 10 consecutive winners, that player becomes eligible to win a “Streak of 10” prize. Prize availability is subject to the number of prizes available at each “Streak” level and the number of players who have reached any particular streak. An incorrect pick returns the player to “0”. Complete details follow.
SHOSTREAK (the “Sweepstakes”) is offered and open only to persons who are legal residents of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia, who are 18 years of age or older at time of entry, and who are registered users of sho.com at time of Sweepstakes registration (“Player” or “Players”). Employees, officers, directors (and their immediate families and those living in their same household) of Showtime Networks Inc. (“Sponsor”), Marden-Kane, Inc. (“Sweepstakes Administrator”), and their respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, retailers, distributors, suppliers, advertising, promotion, and production agencies are not eligible to participate or win. Void where prohibited. The Sweepstakes is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations. There is no cost to be a registered user of sho.com. Any discontinuation of sho.com membership during the Promotion Period will result in deletion of any streak. Registration details are available at sho.com.
2) How to Enter:
No purchase necessary. Subscription to Showtime Network programming, including any Pay Per View (“PPV”) boxing event, is not required. The Sweepstakes begins at approximately 2:00 P.M. Eastern Time (“ET”) on or about January 16, 2016 and ends at approximately 2:00 P.M. ET on December 31, 2016 (the “Promotion Period”). To register and/or to enter the Sweepstakes go to sho.com, navigate to the SHOSTREAK page, and provide the information requested. Each month throughout the Promotion Period, approximately 1-3 fight cards will be posted for Showtime boxing events. A “card” consists of a number of boxing matches that will be broadcast by Showtime on a particular night. You will have the opportunity to electronically select which fighter(s) you believe will win each respective boxing match (or bout) posted for this Sweepstakes, with the objective being to make as many correct selections in a row (i.e. a “streak”) as possible. Each fight card as described will include approximately 3-5 fights.
By registering for this Sweepstakes one time, you will be able to participate in selecting fight card winners at any time during the Promotion Period. You are not obligated to make a selection for every fight card posted and there will be no penalty or loss of streak for not participating in any fight card. If you do participate in a fight card selection, and you have selected the correct fighter that was determined to be the winner on the night of the fight, you will reach a streak of 1 (one). If you participate in another fight card selection and have selected the correct winning fighter for that fight, you will reach a streak of 2 (two), etc. If at any point, however, you participate in a fight card selection and you have selected the non-winning fighter, your streak will be reset to (0) zero. Your streak count will begin again once you make another correct fight card selection. A draw or a fight cancellation will result in a “non-pick” and will not impact any streak you have attained. If, subsequently, it is determined that the declared winner of any fight has been changed after the night of the fight (i.e. disqualified), the winner originally declared and announced on the night of the fight will prevail and no changes to streaks will be made. A minimum Streak of 10 (ten) consecutive correct picks must be reached for the possibility of winning a prize (as outlined in Rule #3 below). Only available fight cards (selected at Sponsor’s discretion) will be included in this Sweepstakes. Available fight cards will be posted onto the Sweepstakes website anytime between 2-8 weeks prior to the scheduled fights and are subject to official fight scheduling, meaning the card and the fights on the card may be changed. Selections for any posted fight cards must be placed prior to the commencement of the respective fight (at or around the time of in-ring introductions) on the night of the fight’s original broadcast and no further selections will be accepted once the selection period has officially been closed for that fight. A ‘lock’ icon will appear on the fight card once the selection period for a fight has been closed. Fight card selections may be changed at any time before the selection period has officially been closed for each respective fight. The Sponsor is the official timekeeper of this Sweepstakes and will determine when the selection period has been closed for each respective fight.
Limit one (1) SHOSTREAK registration per eligible Player during the Promotion Period.
3) Determining/Notifying Winners:
There are several streak milestone levels that can be reached during the Promotion Period as outlined below:
“Streak of 10”: The first 10,000 Players who correctly select 10 (ten) consecutive winners anytime during the Promotion Period will win the “Streak of 10” prize described in Rule #4 below. In the event more than 10,000 Players reach this level, only the first 10,000 will win the prize, subject to verification. Limit 1 (one) “Streak of 10” prize per qualifying Player.
“Streak of 25”: The first 1,000 Players who correctly select 25 (twenty-five) consecutive winners anytime during the Promotion Period will win the “Streak of 25” prize described in Rule #4 below. In the event that more than 1,000 Players reach this level, only the first 1,000 will win the prize, subject to verification.
“Streak of 40”: The first 40 Players who correctly select 40 (forty) consecutive winners anytime during the Promotion Period will win the “Streak of 40” prize described in Rule #4 below. In the event that more than 40 Players reach this level, only the first 40 will win the prize, subject to verification.
“Streak of 50”: All Players who correctly select 50 (fifty) consecutive winners anytime during the Promotion Period will be placed into a random drawing for the opportunity to win the “Streak of 50” prize described in Rule #4 below. The random drawing will be conducted at the end of the Promotion Period, on or about January 4, 2017, and only one (1) person will win the prize, subject to verification. There is no prize awarded for correctly selecting more than 50 (fifty) consecutive winners. However, if play is continued beyond “Streak of 50” and reset to (0) zero, Players who have already reached a “Streak of 50”, may continue to win additional prizes for correct consecutive selections reached for any Streak level (pending prize availability), other than the one-time “Streak of 10” prize. For each subsequent time a “Streak of 50” is reached, the respective Player will receive an additional entry into the random drawing.
Once any Streak has been reached, Sponsor and/or Sponsor’s representative will notify potential winner(s) by email address (using information provided on registration form) within 3 (three) business days. Potential “Streak 10”, “Streak 25” and “Streak 40” winner(s) will be required to provide their first and last name, street address (No P.O. Boxes), city, state, and ZIP Code by the date indicated on the email notification letter. Potential “Streak of 50” winner will be notified that he/she has qualified for the random drawing that will take place at the end of the Promotion Period. If selected in the random drawing, he/she will then be required to sign, have notarized, and return to Sponsor’s representative an affidavit of eligibility/release of liability, a W9 tax form, and where legal, publicity release by the date indicated on the notification letter. Guests of “Streak of 50” winner must be 18 years of age or older (unless guests are the children of respective winners). Guests (parents/guardians, if guests are minors) must sign and return consent to publicity (where legal), and liability waiver prior to awarding of prize. Acceptance of prize constitutes permission for the Sponsor and its designees to use winners’ (and winners’ guest’s) names and likenesses for advertising and promotional purposes without additional compensation unless prohibited by law. Failure to provide shipping information (for merchandise prizes) or to complete any additional requested documents (for fight prizes) by the date and time noted in the email notification, or if any prize notification is undeliverable, or if the potential winner is found to be ineligible for any reason, will result in disqualification of the potential winner and a forfeiture of the prize won in the respective Streak level. If there is time permitting in the Promotion Period, any forfeited prize will be re-imported into the prize pool for the respective Streak level for an opportunity to be won by other Players who may reach that level. If more than one Player reaches a Streak level when there are prizes remaining, but of an insufficient quantity to award to all Players who reached the respective level, a tie-breaking random drawing will take place to award remaining prizes. Subsequently, when prizes for any Streak level have been exhausted and no prizes remain for that level, that Streak level will be closed and there will be notice posted on the Sweepstakes website. Any random drawing(s) will be conducted by Sweepstakes Administrator whose decisions are final and binding on all matters relating to this Sweepstakes. Odds of winning a prize are based on the number of prizes available for any of the Streak prize levels and the number of qualified Players who correctly identify the fight winners to win the corresponding Streak prize. Odds of winning the “Streak of 50” prize are based on the number of Players who correctly selected 50 consecutive winners. Potential winners are subject to eligibility verification and compliance with these Official Rules. Players may win more than one prize if their streak continues and reaches progressively higher Streak levels. When a Player’s streak ends and he/she returns to 0 (zero), the Player may continue his/her attempts at reaching subsequent streak levels to accumulate duplicate prizes (while supplies last) EXCEPT for the “Streak of 10” and “Streak of 50” prizes.
