Determination of Number of Winners

At the conclusion of each of the six (6) scheduled rounds of the 2021 Men’s College Basketball Tournament (the ”Tournament”), Administrator shall determine how many times in the corresponding round a lower seed team beats a higher seed team in the Tournament (each occurrence an ”Upset”). For clarity purposes, the definition an Upset for this Sweepstakes is as follows:

There will be no opportunity for an Upset to occur in the event the two (2) teams playing against each other are ranked with identical seeds on the Tournament bracket.  For example, if a team ranked as a two (2) seed on the Tournament bracket is playing another team ranked as a two (2) seed on the Tournament bracket, regardless of the outcome the game will not result in being designated as an Upset in this Sweepstakes.  In the event any game is forfeited, postponed, suspended, rescheduled, cancelled or not completed as a full regulation game, whereby neither team is declared a winner (i.e. both teams are eliminated, and the team in the next round of the Tournament scheduled to play the ‘winner’ receives a bye), that game will not result in being designated as an Upset.  In the event the seeding changes for any reason during the Tournament (i.e. a team ranked as a 6 seed on the Tournament bracket prior to the start of the Tournament is changed to a 7 seed on the Tournament bracket after the Tournament begins), this Sweepstakes will adhere to the actual seed of each team at the time of the designated game in the Tournament.

 

The number of  available prizes in this Sweepstakes will be based on the number of Upsets in the Tournament and the round in which an Upset occurs as follows:

Effect of Forfeit/Postponed/Suspended/Rescheduled/Cancelled/Incomplete Game(s):

In the event the Tournament is impacted by any scheduled game being forfeited, postponed, suspended, rescheduled, cancelled or not completed as a full regulation game; but where one team is declared the ‘winner’ by Tournament officials and advances in the bracket, and one team is declared the ‘losing team’ by tournament officials and is eliminated from the bracket, such designated winning team shall be considered as the winner for that scheduled game for the purposes of this Sweepstakes.

 

Any occurrence of a forfeit, postponement, suspension, reschedule, cancellation or incomplete game that has a cascading impact upon the remaining Tournament schedule or structure, whereby Sponsor is unable to determine which round an Upset occurred in, or any future scheduled game would be further impacted and unable to be played as originally scheduled, or if the Tournament structure or originally scheduled teams are adjusted, substituted or modified by the tournament officials, Sponsor reserves the right to modify or terminate this Sweepstakes and award less than the number of scheduled prizes.

 

 

Selection of Winners

Administrator shall conduct six (6) random drawings from among all eligible Entries received up to or during the corresponding Entry Period to determine potential winners in the Sweepstakes (each, a “Prize Winner ” and collectively, the “Prize Winners” ).  Each drawing will be conducted from all Entries received up to and including the current Entry Period Only non-winning Entries will ‘roll over’ to subsequent drawings, if any.
