- HOW TO ENTER AND PLAY. No purchase or payment is necessary to participate in the Contest. Enter and participate in the Contest by completing each of the following steps (or any additional steps that may be posted or otherwise provided to you by Sponsor):
a. Download and Register/Log-In: (i) Download or open the Swagbucks LIVE Application via the Apple Store or Google Play Store on your mobile device (or by any other method made available by Sponsor e.g. desktop portal); (ii) Either sign in with your existing Swagbucks.com login credentials or, if you do not have a Swagbucks.com account, create an account in the Swagbucks LIVE Application (this will serve as your login for both Swagbucks LIVE and on Swagbucks.com). Entrants with a pre-existing Swagbucks.com account must use their pre-existing Swagbucks.com account. Only one Swagbucks LIVE account and one Swagbucks LIVE-enabled device is permitted per person. All Swagbucks LIVE entrants must verify and register their mobile phone if they have not already done so. Verification consists of entering a code that you will receive by SMS to your designated mobile phone device into the applicable code-verification screen in the Swagbucks LIVE Application. Standard text message charges may apply from your wireless provider, depending on your text message plan.
b. Entering a Game: Prior to the Start Time of the Game, you will be notified as to when the next Game begins; provided that you grant permission to receive notifications on your device. Prior to the designated Start Time, launch the Swagbucks LIVE Application and leave it open to be automatically entered into the then-current live Game. If you are an entrant in a Game and you have not been disqualified from winning the Grand Prize but you exit the Game for any reason, you must re-enter the Game before the next question has been presented or you will be disqualified from winning the applicable Grand Prize; however, you may continue to answer questions for a chance to win Secondary Prizes (if any).
c. Playing a Game: While playing the Game, you will have a sponsor-determined unit of time to answer each question. If you get the answer right, you will move on to the next question “round”. If you get the answer wrong, you will be eliminated for the remainder of the Game unless you use a “Chance”, defined as a Sponsor-granted opportunity to re-enter a Game for a chance to win the Grand Prize after an entrant incorrectly answers a question You must affirmatively activate the Chance based on the criteria set by the Sponsor prior to the next consecutive question. A Chance may be activated based on several sponsor-determined criteria, including, without limitation, redeeming a Sponsor-specified amount of SB (i.e. points) available in your Swagbucks LIVE-linked Swagbucks.com account at the time the Chance is offered. Questions may get progressively more difficult.
- PRIZES. There are two (2) types of prizes (“Prizes”) that entrants may win: the Grand Prize and the Secondary Prize.
a. Grand Prize: One (1) or more Winner(s) of each Game will receive a grand prize (the “Grand Prize”). The Grand Prize consists of a Sponsor-determined amount of SB (defined below); subject to Sponsor’s Game and Prize compliance verifications. The value of each Game’s Grand Prize depends on several factors including, without limitation, the number of eligible Contest entrants, the number of first-time Swagbucks LIVE entrants, the number of Winner(s), the number of new entrant referrals made by prior-existing entrants, and any roll-over Grand Prizes not awarded in prior Games. All Winners will split the Grand Prize equally in the case of multiple Winner(s). The Winner(s) of a Game (each a “Winner”) are those entrants remaining at the end of each Game who correctly answered each of the Game questions without being disqualified. Entrants who redeemed one or more Chances and thereafter completed the Game by correctly answering all the remaining Game questions shall be treated as Winners as well. Only Winners are eligible to earn a Grand Prize.
b. Secondary Prize: Entrants may have an opportunity to earn one (1) or more secondary prize(s) (“Secondary Prizes”) even if such entrant is disqualified from winning the Grand Prize. Secondary Prizes consist of a Sponsor-determined amount of SB that are awarded to each entrant of the Game after correctly answering a sponsor-determined question. The value of the Secondary Prizes will be aggregated during the Game and the total Secondary Prize value won by an entrant must be affirmatively claimed at the end of each Game or else the Secondary Prize will be forfeited.
c. Prizes Generally: The proportional value of the earned Grand Prize and all claimed Secondary Prizes will be added to each entrant’s Swagbucks LIVE-linked Swagbucks.com account. Prizes will be awarded in the form of SB. “SB” are points that have an approximate retail value of $0.01 USD. SB may be redeemed for cash or gift cards in the Swagbucks.com Rewards Store located at http://www.swagbucks.com/rewards-store. In no event shall the Sponsor be obligated to award any prizes other than the Prize specified in these Official Rules. The Sponsor does not guarantee that the Prizes can be made available. The Prizes are not assignable and not transferable and no substitutions are permitted. In addition, if the Prizes are unable to be fulfilled to any Winner due to any applicable law, rule or regulation, or if such Winner cannot claim the Prize(s) for any reason, then Sponsor reserves the right to not award the Prize(s) at all. The Prize winners shall be responsible and liable for all federal, state and local taxes arising out of the value of the Prize(s). Each potential Winner must be a registered member in good standing with Swagbucks.com at all relevant times, including, without limitation, at the time of their entry into the applicable Game of the Contest.
- PRIZE SELECTION. The Contest and all Prizes will be conducted under the supervision of the Sponsor. The decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding in all matters relating to this Contest. The Winner(s) of the Grand Prize and the entrants who win Secondary Prizes will be notified in the Swagbucks LIVE Application, on Swagbucks.com and/or by email; provided, however, that Sponsor reserves the right to determine an alternate method of notification. If an entrant is found to be ineligible for a Prize or Game, Sponsor may, at its option and sole discretion, choose not to award the Prize to such entrant.
