How the Competition works
To enter the Competition, Entrants must within the timeframe ("Entry Period") stated in the dedicated competition post on the PS Facebook Account ("Competition Post") post a reply to the Competition Post ("Entry") containing: a) the hashtag #bingo, and b) their prediction of the Winning Column (as explained in paragraph 13 below) by using the coloured circle emoji corresponding to the colour of their predicted Winning Column (i.e. blue, white or red). This is the only entry route to the Competition and entries that do not comply with the provisions of this paragraph will not be eligible.
The Competition Post will attach a visual containing 3 columns, each column containing 3 events ("Events") that may take place in a football game. In the first column (the blue column) the Events are listed in blue, in the second column (the white column) the Events are listed in white and in the third column (the red column) the Events are listed in red. "Winning Column" means the coloured column which contains the most Events that actually take place in the applicable football game. If more than one coloured column contains the most Events that actually take place in the applicable football game, each of those columns will be a Winning Column. If no Events listed in any column actually take place in the applicable football game, there will be no Winning Column.
All eligible Entries that correctly predict the Winning Column (by using the coloured circle emoji corresponding to the colour of their predicted Winning Column in their Entry) will be entered into a pool and the winner(s) will be selected at random from that pool. If only one eligible Entrant correctly predicts the Winning Column, that Entrant will be the only winner. If no eligible Entrants correctly predict the Winning Column, or if there is no Winning Column, all otherwise eligible Entries will be entered into a pool and the winner(s) will be selected at random from that pool. The random prize draw will take place by 23:59 CET the day after the applicable football game.
The Promoter has no liability for any Entry that is submitted outside the Entry Period. Further, the Promoter has no liability for any Entry that is not actually received by the Promoter during the Entry Period, whether due to human error on the part of the Entrant and/or due to technical issues, network congestion or for any other reason.
The number of winners and the number of Free Bet prizes to be won (together with their value) will be announced in the Competition Post.
Within 24 hours of the random prize draw, the winner(s) will be announced and tagged by the PS Facebook Account in a comment under the Competition Post ("Notification").
Winners must claim their Free Bet prize by sending a private message to the PS Facebook Account confirming their PokerStars username within two days of Notification. If a winner fails to claim their Free Bet prize within this timeline, their prize may be forfeited and Promoter shall be entitled to select another winner via a random prize draw from the pool of remaining eligible Entries in accordance with paragraph 14).
Free Bet prizes will be credited to the winners’ PokerStars accounts within 7 days of claiming their prize (as explained in paragraph 18 above).
Free Bet prizes are valid for 7 days after being credited to a winner’s account and can be used on single wagers, doubles, or any other type of accumulators. Free Bet prizes can't be used on system bets.
Prizes may be replaced with a substitute prize of equal or greater value, if circumstances beyond our control make it necessary to do so. All prizes are non-exchangeable, non-transferable and there are no cash alternatives.
What else do Entrants need to know?
