Contest Terms

Entry cancellation

SFT reserves the right to terminate any games whereas SFT determines that the game is not adequately filled with users.

SFT will always refund any assumed entry fees back to the user after a contest or game is terminated due to a SFT error. SFT may combine contest or games which have all been determined to have inadequate user entries. In this way, SFT betters the experience of the user by still holding the contests of equally valued awards each of which may not have met user volume criteria. You may cancel your entry into a contest that isn’t filled within 15 minutes of a contest start time. After 15 minutes, the cancellation function is cancelled regardless of contest user capacity. The head-to- head contest can not be cancelled even if at the request of each competing player. SFT cancellation requests should be accomplished via an application. Emails, telephone calls, and mail are not considered sufficient means of communications for cancellations.

Fees and Charges

SFT list our contest entry fees in EURO currency. Currency translation in your region, jurisdiction or country should be assumed by you, the user. Entry fees will be deducted from your SFT account when you choose to participate in a contest. Entry fees are always tied to the account of origin; meaning, an account’s contest entry fee cannot be disputed for any reasons. If SFT determines that a user did not, in fact, submit an entry fee, that user’s prize will be terminated and SFT reserves the right to terminate or suspend the account in violation.

Դրամական պարգեւ

Contest winners are announced right after the competition unless further contest and user authenticity is necessary, in which case, SFT reserves the right to hold back winner determinations until appropriate, accurate determinations can be specified.

SFT will announce the entry fees and awards / prizes prior to each contest. Users are communicated contest prizes and contest specifics prior to issuing their entry fee. The capacity or volume of entries does not manipulate the prize amounts. Prizes shall be awarded to users who accumulate the most fantasy points from their pre-determined lineups. SFT is prohibited from using metrics such as point spread or game score as results for determining winners.

Winners should expect prizes to be added to the user’s account balance with 24-hours of such determinations. SFT may, in some cases, offer contest free of any awards and prizes. These contests would be considered strictly for a user’s entertainment or risk-free refinement of skills.

In the case of a tie (draw) in a SFT contest, the prize shall be divided up amongst participating users of that specific contest. Only in cases whereas the original contest rules state otherwise, this will always be the assumed resolution to ties. Highest individual scoring athletes can be used as tie breakers. This would be true infinitely down the board (athletes with the highest score down to next highest score, and so forth, with consistency). If in the rare case a tie still cannot be broken, the user who submitted their team first will be determined the winner.

Prize calculations

Prize calculations are based on entry fee sums (subject to VAT and service fees), entered users final tallied scoring and Enetpulse.com’s statistical data interpretations / software. As mentioned prior, SFT reserves the right to authenticate winning results if questions over said results arise. Enetpulse.com will help determine the legitimacy of SFT winners. Users may not transfer their prizes to other users under any circumstances. Prize taxes are the user’s sole responsibility, and SFT can never be held responsible. Legal challenges regarding the distribution of prizes can be considered a reason to not award a user a prize.

Professional sports leagues often make statistical adjustments after contest ends; these data manipulations will not affect SFT contest results after prize awards have been distributed. If a technical error on the part of Enetpulse.com occurs, a correction and reversal may take place.

Notification

SFT reserves the right to request an affidavit of eligibility from winners to ensure legitimacy to claims. These affidavits may be requested to be returned by mail or email, which may or may not involve specified, relevant tax forms. If a user fails to comply with this requirement, it will result in SFT disqualifying the user and their results from the contest.

This changes nothing in the terms of awards or user winnings / deposits.
