Terms and Conditions

1)    It is important that Entrants read the Terms and Conditions carefully and understand what they mean. By submitting an entry, Entrants confirm their complete understanding and acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.
2)    Entrants must be aged 18 or over on Tuesday March 12th 2013.
3)    There is no limit to the number of entries submitted per Entrant, subject to the Terms and Conditions. However each entry must consist of a different selection of horses.
4)    Entry to the Competition will open on Friday 1st March 2013. To score from the first day, entries must be received no later than 0001 GMT on Tuesday 12th March 2013.
5)    Inaudible, unintelligible, incomplete or incorrect entries, or any considered inappropriate, offensive or obscene will be regarded as invalid and the entry rejected. GamesAid and associated partners will not be held responsible for entries lost or distorted in transfer, or for network breakdowns that result in an entry not being registered or confirmation not being received.
6)    Entry fees are non-refundable.
7)    Each entry entered into the Competition must contain at least one bet and the total stake must equal £100. Horses cannot appear in the same entry more than once. Only the declared horses for each race count – non runner equals a loss of the bet. The Promoter will not enter into any correspondence in this regard.
8)    Should any of the horses in the official horse list run in more than one Race at the Cheltenham Festival, points will be awarded on their opening race only.
9)    Points are based on every race scheduled for the Cheltenham Festival (12-15 March 2013). If races are rescheduled for subsequent days, they will remain as part of the competition and as their scheduled day. For example, if Wednesday’s races are postponed and run on Thursday, they will count as part of the competition and will be listed as taking place on Wednesday. Wednesday’s daily prize and all other daily prizes will be awarded in accordance to the races scheduled for that day – regardless of when they are actually run.
10)    Horses will score points for winning or placing (for each way bets) in the scheduled races at the Festival. The official Starting Price of each horse will be taken into account when working out returns for each bet and the SP will be taken from the Racing Post.
11)    If any of the winning Starting Prices are impacted by Rule 4 deductions, these will also apply to the points scored. In the event of a dead-heat the horse will only pay out at 50% of the starting price, as befits the Rules of Racing.
12)    A final leaderboard and details of prize winners will be published on Monday 18th March 2013.
13)    The first prize will be awarded to the entry which accumulated the most profit from their £100 virtual bank during the Competition. None of the prizes will be shared. In the event of a tie, the prize will be awarded on the principle of a countback to the entry with the higher number of winners; or, if necessary, seconds, or thirds and so on. In the unlikely event of a further tie, the Promoter will consider first the highest Starting Price of horses in each tied entry, then finishing distances and finally the time of entry (earliest take the higher position) will be used to determine a unique winner for each prize.
14)    Winners of all prizes will be notified within 28 days of the end of the Competition. Winners will be notified via email or telephone.
15)    GamesAid have made all reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Competition is provided using reasonable skill and care. However, no warranties are made whatsoever in relation to the accuracy, suitability, reliability, completeness or otherwise of the Competition itself nor in relation to disruptions, delays or errors in connection with the websites, in particular for any acts or omissions made by any telecommunications service provider with whom you have contracted to gain access to the Websites, all to which without limitation GamesAid accepts shall not be held responsible. Further, no warranty is made in respect of information to which you may have access but which has not been directly provided by GamesAid including without limitation, information on the internet available outside of the Websites which shall remain the responsibility of the provider of such information.
16)    Except as expressly provided in these Terms and Conditions, and to the extent permitted by law, GamesAid, its employees, agents and partners disclaim any and all liability in respect of any loss or damage arising out of the Competition, and/or websites, whether such loss or damage results from negligence, breach of statutory duty or otherwise, and whether in contract or in tort or otherwise, including but not limited to the loss or corruption of data, any errors or omissions, content, delays or interruptions in transmission or operation and lines or communication failure. In no event shall GamesAid be liable for any loss of profit, goodwill and any indirect, special or other consequential or incidental damage, whether foreseeable or not.
17)    These Terms shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with English law and Entrants hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts in connection with any dispute that may arise regarding any aspect of the Competition or the Terms.
