Cap2Win Monthly Handicapping Contest Rules
These rules are in effect as of March 22, 2013. Cap2Win reserves the right at any time, without notice, to add, remove and/or change or otherwise modify any feature of the website and/or these Rules. Please check back often for the latest rules.
Contest Entry / Eligibility
In order to be eligible to play, players must be a registered user with Cap2Win and at least 21 years of age, and a legal resident of the United States of America. Provided, however, no player may participate while residing in a jurisdiction in which the contest is forbidden. Cap2Win will determine player eligibility and reserves the right to remove players it deems in its sole discretion that are not eligible. Cap2Win may disqualify and remove a player at any time.
In addition to the above, to be eligible for the monthly prize, a player must enter twelve (12) entries in a given month.
Players do not need to be US citizens to play; however, no prizes will be awarded to players outside the United States and such player's results will not be considered in determining the winner of the contest.
Players may only register one time. Players may not register multiple times with different email addresses or physical addresses or IP address. If violation of this rule is discovered, the player will be eliminated from the competition permanently.
All federal, state and local laws and regulations apply and may place additional restrictions on contest rules and/or eligibility.
NOTE; Notwithstanding the foregoing, employees of Cap2Win, as well as members of their immediate families or households, are not eligible to win any of the prizes described in these Rules. All prizes described by these Rules are void where prohibited by law.
If a winning player is determined to be ineligible, prizes will be awarded to the next person in order of the contest standings
Playing the contest
All entries must be made through the website at www.cap2win.com.
Eligible tracks will be determined by Cap2Win in its sole discretion. These eligible tracks will be listed via drop down menu and may be changed at any time by Cap2Win. Players must choose from available tracks in the dropdown menu on the contest website. Players may make picks from any available track in the menu.
Horses will also be chosen from drop down menu. Players may not enter more than one horse per race. Races are typically first available in the Cap2Win drop down menu between 48 and 24 hours prior to post time.
Deadline for entries for any given race is 15 minutes prior to post time. This will be controlled by the contest website automatically.
A calendar month is the duration of each monthly contest. In any given month, the contest begins with the first race at all eligible tracks on the first day in the calendar month and ends with the last race at eligible tracks on the last day on the calendar month. In the event of technical difficulties or race cancellations on the last day (or days) of a calendar month, the winner will be determined by the current standings when racing ended for the month.
In the event of technical issues with the site, players must check back frequently and enter picks when the site is available again. If a player has a problem accessing the site, email entries or phone entries cannot be accepted.
In the event of a scratch, the horse may still show as available in the drop down menu players can still choose this horse. If the horse does not start, the entry will not be considered for contest standings.
Twelve entries per month are required to be eligible for prizes. A player may make up to 40 entries per calendar month. All entries will count towards the player's monthly ROI and standings, as well as All-Time ROI and standings.
If an entry is made in error, it cannot be reversed or invalidated. So please make sure before you submit an entry. Results are updated each night. If a payout is reported incorrectly, please report it to the contest administrator at emailto: email@example.com. Reports of errors must be made within 48 hours of the time the race was run.
All single race payoffs will be capped at $35. This will reduce the tendency of players to go for long shots. A cap on payoffs is common in handicapping tournaments as it is believed to improve the overall play and competitiveness of the competition.
No more than four contest entries can be made by a player on any given day.
All entries, along with all copyright, trademark and other proprietary rights associated therewith, become property of Cap2Win and may be used for marketing purposes.
Winning the contest
Contest winner will be determined by highest ROI at the end of the last day of racing in a calendar month. ROI is determined by taking all contest entries of the player for that month, adding up the win payoffs from those entries, and dividing by the number of picks X 2$. This figure represents the Return on Investment (ROI).
In the event that two (or more) players are tied at the end of the month, the tie breaker will go to the player who made their last included entry soonest in the month. In other words, if one player's twelfth included entry was made by the 25th of the month and the other player's twelfth included entry was made on the 27th, the first player would be named the winner.
A player may win the contest more than once.
Cap2Win will provide a cash prize for each monthly contest and will notify the winners by e-mail and website posting within 18 hours. E-mail notifications will be sent to the e-mail account listed on that person's registration. It is a player's responsibility to ensure that the e-mail address listed on his/her profile is accurate.
Prizes will be paid to the contest winner by PayPal or by check as determined by Cap2Win.
No substitution or transfer of prizes will be permitted unless explicitly authorized in writing by Cap2Win. ALL TAXES ASSOCIATED WITH THE RECEIPT OR USE OF ANY PRIZES AND ANY SHIPPING OR HANDLING CHARGES ARE THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE WINNER AND THE WINNER IS REQUIRED TO REPORT HIS/HER WINNINGS TO A GOVERNMENTAL ENTITY AND/OR PAY ANY TAXES OWED AS A RESULT OF CLAIMING HIS/HER PRIZE.
The Cap2Win monthly handicapping contest is a contest of skill, subject to all federal, state, provincial and local laws and void where prohibited by law.
