Weekly Tipping Prize:

One Weekly Tipping Prize will be awarded for each Round of the Promotion Period. There can only be one winner for each Round.

The Weekly Tipping Prize winner will be determined at the Promoter’s premises Listed in Item 2: Promoter after the completion of that Round.

The Weekly Tipping Prize winner for each Round will be the Eligible Entrant who has the highest Tip Score for that Round and the lowest Margin Score for the first game in the Round.

If there is a tie break between two or more Eligible Entrants, the Entrant that has the highest score on the leader board, up to and including the Round in which the Weekly Tipping Prize is being awarded, will be the Weekly Tipping Prize winner for that Round.

As with the Major Tipping Prize, in the event that the leading Entrants are equal in score in each respect for the Round, the first in time to enter the Promotion Period will be the Weekly Tipping Prize winner for the week.

Major Tipping Prize:

The Major Tipping Prize will be determined at the Prize Winners Selection Location at 12pm Melbourne time on 27 August 2019.

There can only be one winner of the Major Tipping Prize.

The winner of the Major Tipping Prize (described in Item 9) will be the Eligible Entrant with the unique best score, to be determined by assessing the scoring criteria in the following order until a unique winner is ascertained:

  1. The winner of the Major Tipping Prize will be the Eligible Entrant with the highest Cumulative Tip Score at the end of the Promotion Period.
  2. In the event of a tie between two or more Eligible Entrants with the equal highest Cumulative Tip Score, to break the tie, the winner will be the Entrant with lowest Cumulative Margin Score.
  3. If this fails to break the tie, the winner will be the entrant with lowest Margin Score in that Round (with respect to the Major Tipping Prize, the final Round will be the relevant Round to decide a tie in this instance). The Margin Score is used as a tie-breaker should more than one entry be ranked equally based on points.
  4. If, after assessing the scores above, there is not one unique winner, the entrant who registered for this Promotion first in time (of the Eligible Entrants that have been assessed against the three scoring criteria) will be ranked higher in order to break the tie and will deemed the winner of the Major Tipping Prize.

Using the scoring system described above, entrants will be ranked in order based on the highest score. The Top 10 List of entrants will be maintained and published on the website throughout the competition. The top Eligible Entrant at the end of the Promotional Period will be entitled to the Prize.

If required, an independent person will be present to scrutinise any judging of a tie-breaker that involves an element of chance (Scrutineer), the announcement of the Winner. The Scrutineer will also verify the details of the Winner
