Competition(s) include trivia game Competitions through the App.
You may join a Competition(s) while it is valid, that is before the expiry date. FORTUNES OF TRIVIA may announce Competition(s) through the App from time to time.
All on-going Competitions shall be available to users through the Competitions Screen.
FORTUNES OF TRIVIA reserves the right to cancel any Competition(s), in our sole discretion, with no restrictions.
Each Competition shall be linked to a specific Competition Leaderboard according to which all Competition prizes shall be awarded on the Expiry Date of the Competition.
Each Competition Leaderboard shall display the sum of all High Scores achieved by each participating player in all challenges linked with the particular Competition. High Scores achieved under “Practice Mode” or under a different Competition shall not be considered.
A Competition may be linked with one or more Challenges.
The winner(s) of each Competition will receive a prize (monetary and/or non-monetary, in-app and/or non in-app), determined by FORTUNES OF TRIVIA (the “Prize”).
FOT Coins (Coins awarded to Competition(s) winners) shall be redeemed according to the terms found in the in app Coins Redemption Screen, through the Settings Menu.
FORTUNES OF TRIVIA will distribute prizes according to the rules for the specific Competition(s) entered and players may need to split Prizes according to those rules and as explained here. The Prize associated with a Leaderboard Rank position shall be shared amongst Players that have achieved that position(s). For example, if a Competition offers a Prize of $30 Voucher for TOP 3 Players in the relevant Leaderboard, each of the 3 Players shall receive $30.
In case 2 or more users have the same score, the user who achieved the High Score the latest shall rank higher on the Leaderboard (Competition or Practice). The reasoning for this logic is that users who had been playing the game for a longer period of time had more time available to achieve a Higher Score and new users should not be penalised for logging in late.
Receipt of any Cash Prizes will be awarded through through PayPal, a third party service. In such cases, Prize fulfilment will also be subject to the terms, conditions, and privacy policies of PayPal, located at https://www.paypal.com . In case alternative arrangements are required these will be decided at the discretion of Fortunes of Trivia.
Users with more than 900 Lives and/or 900 50/50 aids at the time of award of any prize shall not be allocated with any award unless the number of available Lives and 50/50 aids is below the 900 threshold. In case a user maintains a balance higher than 900 of Lives and/or 50/50 aids for a period longer than 30 days after the reward/ prize was awarded the award shall be withdrawn.
