19. GAME RULES
(a) Game of Skill
Celebrity Bucks is a game of skill. Winners are determined by calculating the Celebrity Bucks net worth of each celebrity in each user portfolio in addition to any Celebrity Bucks cash reserves. For each contest, winners are determined by the individuals who use their skill and knowledge of relevant celebrity and pop-culture information to accumulate the highest portfolio net worth. Celebrity values are accumulated through the mention of individual celebrities across multiple third-party news resources.
(b) Entry fees
Each Celebrity Bucks contest has an entry fee listed in US dollars. When you opt to participate in a contest, that amount in US dollars will be debited from your Celebrity Bucks account. Then, follow the links and instructions provided for entry. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting an entry, the entry will be deemed submitted by the person in whose Username the entry was submitted, or if possession of the Username itself is contested, the name in which the email address on file was registered with the email service provider.
(c) Contest Term
Celebrity Bucks offers contests in varying lengths of time. The length of each contest will be displayed prior to user joining contest.
After each contest ends (at 8:00 PM Eastern Time on Contest Completion Date), prizes are awarded (generally by 10 AM ET the following day). The players in each contest who accumulate the most net worth will win prizes as set out in the posted contest details. Prizes are added to the winning team's account balance. In the event of a tie, the prize is divided evenly between the tied players, unless otherwise specified.
Celebrity Bucks offers a number of different types of contests. For each contest, we announce the entry fees and prizes in advance on the contest page. For a summary of entry fees and prizes for currently open contests please login and visit the main lobby.
Prize calculations are based on the results as of the time when final scoring is tabulated by Celebrity Bucks. Once prizes are awarded, the scoring results will not be changed regardless of any official adjustments made by the professional contests.
No substitution or transfer of prize is permitted. All taxes associated with the receipt or use of any prize are the sole responsibility of the winner. In the event that the awarding of any prizes to winners of the Contest is challenged by any legal authority, Celebrity Bucks reserves the right in its sole discretion to determine whether or not to award such prizes.
Prizes that are offered by users in either public or private contest formats are not subject to enforcement by Celebrity Bucks. Celebrity Bucks does not in any way guarantee that the user offering the prize will deliver such prize at the commencement of the contest. Users who do not honor delivery of prize winnings may have their accounts terminated by Celebrity Bucks in its sole discretion.
Winners are generally posted on the Celebrity Bucks website after the conclusion of each contest by 10 AM ET on the following day. Winners may be requested to return via email or regular mail an affidavit of eligibility and appropriate tax forms. Failure to comply with this requirement can result in disqualification. Any prize notification returned as undeliverable may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate winner. In addition, a list of winners and winner's names for each competition period may be obtained by emailing [email protected]
In early January each year all winners who have won $600 or more (net of all entry fees) over the previous year will be contacted to provide address and social security details. These details will be used to file a 1099-MISC with the Internal Revenue Service.
(g) Bonuses and Promotions
We frequently offer bonuses to newly depositing users and for other marketing purposes. Pending bonus is converted into a players cash account as the player enters real money contests. Unless otherwise stated, any unconverted pending bonus remaining in a players account 45 days after it has been initially credited can be removed by Celebrity Bucks. Any cash bonus a new user receives is for entry into competitions on Celebrity Bucks and can only be withdrawn if they have been previously entered into at least one game. Additionally, if a user immediately withdraws money after a deposit which delivers a deposit bonus then the bonus will be retracted. In the event of abuse of the bonus system, Celebrity Bucks reserves the right to retract user bonuses.
Celebrity Bucks reserves the right to reclaim these funds if players do not use them to enter real money contests within 1 month of their initial crediting. These funds can be used to enter real money contests but can not be immediately withdrawn.
(h) Incomplete Vendor Data or Celebrity Confusion
If Celebrity Bucks is unable to retrieve, parse, or in any way finds any third-party website news data to be unusable, such data may not be included in the calculation of celebrity values. There may be times when a celebrity is inadvertently either (a) awarded erroneous dollar values or (b) not awarded legitimately earned dollar values for a variety of reasons including but not limited to misspelling of names and invalid markup. In the event that these situations do occur, all users of the Site acknowledge that Celebrity Bucks, in its sole discretion, may or may not intervene in the dollar values of affected celebrities. Any determination of celebrity values is the sole decision of Celebrity Bucks.
You agree to abide by U.S. and other applicable laws, including export control laws, and not to transfer, by electronic transmission or otherwise, any software or other content downloaded from the Site to a destination prohibited by such laws, without first obtaining, and then complying with, any requisite government authorization.
