The Registration Process
Each player must be a SportsPlays.com member in good standing and abide by the terms and conditions at SportsPlays.com (http://www.sportsplays.com/terms-of-use.html) to be eligible to play. Any violation of terms, including playing multiple entries/accounts will render participant ineligible for prizes.
The Contest (Streak) Game
To win this contest, you must win a certain number of picks in a row. You may make a maximum of one pick per day and only bets with odds of -110 or higher are allowed.
Each player will be allowed to make at most one pick per day. Picks must be at odds of -110 or higher. No picks allowed at odds lower than -110. Odds on the game must be valid. Picks must be made prior to event start time. Picks made on games with invalid (obviously incorrect) odds and/or picks made on events after the start of the event will be considered void (no action), even if discovered at a date later than the date the pick is made or graded.
Our system will keep track of wins and losses. When you win a pick, your current wins will increase by one. If you lose a pick, your current wins get re-set to 0. If we mis-grade a result, we reserve the right to re-grade it properly. If a win is re-graded as a loss, the user's streak is stopped at that point, regardless of any picks won after the losing pick.
Special Reserved Rights
Any player caught or suspected of system tampering, game interference or breaking our terms and conditions, may be removed from the site at any time and without notice and/or made ineligible for any prizes. We also reserve the right to pursue legal and criminal action upon those member(s).
