5.1 Winnings which can be redeemed for real money are available to eligible participants in the Funrize game promotion (but not to users of the Funrize no-prize entertainment video games) as a prize. Not every entry in the free game of chance promotion will win a prize.
5.2 Residents in the Website server are finite sets of electronic game pieces in a family of electronic finite deals of electronic game pieces. Each electronic game piece is associated with a specific prize value (some are zero) to be awarded. When you play the promotional game, each time you start a play, you withdraw one or more (as you may choose) of the electronic game pieces from the finite deal for each promotional entry that you used to start the play. (For example, if you use thirty promotional game entries to start a play, the award for that play will be the sum of the prize values associated with each of the thirty electronic game pieces within the applicable finite deal of game pieces.)
5.3 Each promotional game title and play level within the title has its own finite deal of electronic game pieces, each game piece with its own award value. The order of values within a deal is determined randomly. When an electronic game piece is withdrawn from the deal, it is not replaced until the finite deal is fully depleted. Then, to enable continuous game play, the deal is reconstituted with the same number and individual value of electronic game pieces but a different random order from which each electronic game piece is sequentially drawn. Several styles of game titles are available to the player.
5.4 Over and above the promotional prizes discussed above, participants in all promotional game titles are eligible to win an award from each of four progressive pools. These progressive prize pools are identified in the Website promotional game section as “Red,” “Silver,” “Gold,” and “Diamond.”
5.4.1 Each time a participant in the game promotion uses promotional entries to initiate a draw from the finite prize pool associated with any promotional game title, approximately two percent (2%) (subject to rounding) of the promotional entries used are allocated not to the draw from the finite deal, but to the family of four progressive-prize pools. This allocation is not uniform across the four pools. Rather, allocation is shown in the table below, subject to rounding. When the total number of promotional entries in each progressive pool reach the distribution trigger shown in the table below for the applicable pool, then each participant in the game promotion who is then active and who initiates the single play with depositing at least thirty (30) promotional game entries, becomes eligible for distribution of the entire contents of the pool. When all participants are eligible, all participants are informed, through artwork on the video screen before them during participation, that the pool is available for distribution to any participant who initiates a draw by depositing to initiate the draw, at least thirty promotional entries. When a progressive pool is available for distribution, on an ongoing basis, a random number generator polls each active account currently participating in the game promotion and triggers the award to one of the players according to the random number generator’s theoretical win percentage shown in the table below.
|PROGRESSIVE POOL||ALLOCATED CONTRIBUTION||DISTRIBUTION TRIGGER||THEORETICAL HIT PERCENTAGE (for every single play)|
Please note that the theoretical hit percentage noted above is the percentage of random number generator outputs that will result in a distribution award to one of the participants then active and eligible in the game promotion. Accordingly, from the point of view of the individual participant, precise odds of winning a distribution from a progressive pool can not be determined in advance of the actual distribution.
5.5 Only Games that have been played with Promotional Entries provide the opportunity to win prizes that could be redeemed for real money. The specific prize that can be won while playing a specific Game will be shown on the Website within the individual interface of each Game.
5.6 Unless otherwise stated or required by the Sponsor, any Promotional Entries allocated to a Participant must be played through at least once before it can be redeemed for real money.
5.7 The maximum winnings that can be redeemed resulting from a prize that player has gotten for free (e.g. after playing Funrize Wheel game) are limited to 25.00 winnings per account. If using promotional entries awarded within a referral program to play games, the maximum winnings amount to be redeemed is limited to 50.00 winnings.
6.1 Winnings awarded from promotional game play may be used by means of your mobile device or personal computer to purchase game play of the Funrize no-prize entertainment video games. Alternatively, if the participant chooses, winnings awarded from game play may be used to redeem for real money at the rate of 1$ for each awarded 1.00 winning that is not used to purchase Coins to play no-prize entertainment video game, but is redeemed; provided however that only those who live in and participate from US excluding restricted states (Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Michigan) are eligible to use winnings to purchase Coins used in the entertainment video game or to redeem for real money.
