3. How the Skill Lottery Competitions work.
3.1 All Skill Lottery Competitions require entrants to exercise skill in order to win the prize. Following valid entry to the Skill Lottery Competition, entrants will be asked: To play skill game: Where is the Ball.
3.2 How to Play Where is the Ball
In Where is the Ball you’re supposed to place the middle of the ball into a picture, from which it has been removed. Check on this website: How to Play;
STEP 1: We use a picture as an example where the ball is visible.
STEP 2: Now the ball is removed from the picture and used for the Skill Lottery Competition.
STEP 3: Your task is now to place the middle of the ball into the picture (adding a cross or ball by clicking on the picture to mark this spot), where you think the middle of the ball should be in the picture, based on what is happening in the picture. You can see your spot's coordinates: X and Y on the screen. The computer will register this spot as your Skill Lottery Ticket entry/number.
You should pay attention to everything in the picture that might be relevant for deciding where the ball should be. You can always choose to place more balls to increase your chances of winning. It’s very important to keep in mind that the winning ball may not necessarily be anywhere near where the ball was originally in the picture. It’s all about subjectivity and how the judges of this Skill Lottery Competition, with their professional expertise, see the picture and where they think the middle of the ball should be in the picture.
STEP 4: A team of specialized, independent judges will decide, under the supervision of the notary/lawyer, where they think the middle of the ball is. The Prize Winner will be the person who correctly identifies, or if no one is correct, who is closest to, the Judge's Position. It’s very important to keep in mind that the winning ball may not necessarily be anywhere near where the ball was originally in the picture. It’s all about subjectivity and how the judges with their professional expertise see the picture and where they think the middle of the ball should be in the picture.

A Skill Lottery Competition will begin on the Opening Date and end on the Closing Date. The Opening Date and the Closing Date will be specified in the relevant Skill Lottery Competition Notice. The Promoter reserves the right to extend the Closing Date where unavoidable circumstances beyond the Promoter’s control make it necessary.
6. Skill Lottery Competition Judgement
6.1 Skill Lottery Competitions: The position of the middle of the ball will be determined after the close of the Skill Lottery Competition by an independent Panel of Judges (appointed by the Promoter – the 'Judge') using their experience and in the presence of a qualified lawyer or notary and a representative from the Promoter ('Judge's Position').
6.2 Within 7 days of the end of the respective Skill Lottery Competition, the Judge's Position will be computed against the database of coordinates to mathematically calculate which of the valid and eligible Entries received by the Promoter is closest to the Judge's Position, and therefore the winning Entrant (the 'Prize Winner') of the prize. The Prize Winner will be the person who correctly identifies, or if no one is correct, who is closest to, the Judge's Position. For the avoidance of doubt, distance will be measured by calculating the straight line distance from each valid and eligible Entry to the Judge's Position ('Distance').
In the event that there are two or more Entrants with valid and eligible Entries that are equally close to or exactly match the Judge's Position (each a 'Tie Break Entry'), the entrants to whom such Tie Break Entries belong, identified by their IHL Account (the 'Tie Break Entrants') will participate in a tie break mechanic to determine the Prize Winner for such Skill Lottery Competition as follows:
(a) Tie Break Scenario 1 – in the event that each of the Tie Break Entrants has made multiple Entries to the Skill Competition:
in Tie Break Scenario 1, the other Entries to the Skill Lottery Competition made by each Tie Break Entrant using the same IHL Account as their respective Tie Break Entry will be used to determine the Prize Winner as follows - the Prize Winner will be determined by calculating the Distance of the next closest Entry to the Judge's Position (excluding the Tie Break Entry) ('TB1 Entries') made by each Tie Break Entrant in that Skill Lottery Competition ('Tie Break 1'). In the event that a single Entrant has more than one Entry involved in a Tie Break, each Entry will be considered individually and eligible to be the next closest entry to each other. In the event that Tie Break 1 results in a tie break, the Tie Break 1 process will be repeated until there are no more TB1 Entries to judge. For the avoidance of doubt, it is not necessary for the Tie Break Entrants to have made the same number of Entries. However, judging under Tie Break 1 will cease when there are no longer sufficient TB1 Entries to compare.
For example, if the first Tie Break Entrant has made a total of 5 Entries and the second Tie Break Entrant has made a total of 10 Entries, judging will cease after a maximum of 4 rounds of Tie Break 1 because the first Tie Break Entrant has no further TB1 Entries to compare. If a winner cannot be determined by using the Tie Break 1 process, such tied entrants ('TB1 Tie Break Entrants') will participate in Tie Break 2;
(b) Tie Break Scenario 2 – in the event that one or more of the Tie Break Entrants has only made one (1) Entry to the Skill Competition or in the event that Tie Break 1 results in a tie break:
the Tie Break Entrants or the TB1 Tie Break Entrants (as relevant) will be asked to take part in another Where is the ball Challenge using a new sporting photograph in order to determine a single Prize Winner (the 'Tie Break 2'). Tie Break 2 will be entered and judged on the same terms as the original Where is the Ball Challenge and there will be no additional payment due. In the event that Tie Break 2 results in a tie break, the Tie Break 2 process will be repeated with the respective tied Entrants until there is a single First Prize Winner. In the event that a single Entrant has more than one Entry involved in a Tie Break, each Entry will be eligible for a separate Tie Break 2 Entry.
If the Promoter is unable to contact one or more of the Tie Break Entrants or the TB1 Tie Break Entrants (as relevant) for Tie Break 2, within three (5) days (which may be extended at the sole discretion of the Promoter) of identifying such Tie Break Entrants (or TB1 Tie Break Entrants as relevant), Tie Break 2 will be concluded without that particular Tie Break Entrant or the TB1 Tie Break Entrant (as relevant).
Tie Break 1 and Tie Break 2, together referred to as "Tie Break".-
6.3 The Promoter will attempt to contact Winner(s) using the telephone numbers and email address provided at the time of Entry (or as subsequently updated) and held securely in our database. It is the Entrant's sole responsibility to check and update these details. If for any reason they are
taken down incorrectly, the Promoter will not be held responsible. Entrants must carefully check their contact details have been recorded correctly.
6.4 If for any reason the Promoter is unable to contact a Winner within 30 days (which may be extended at the sole discretion of the Promoter) of the end of a Skill Lottery Competition or the Winner fails to confirm acceptance of the prize or the Winner is disqualified as a result of contravening any of these
Terms and Conditions, the Winner will forfeit the prize and it will be awarded to the Entrant with the next closest coordinates, as defined in the judging process. For the avoidance of doubt once the prize has been forfeited the original Winner, Tie Break Entrants or Multiple Choice Challenge Winner will have no further claims against the Promoter.
6.5 The Promoter reserves the right to determine the Skill Lottery Competition should not all of the tickets be sold.
6.6 The Promoter reserves the right to extend the closing date of any Skill Lottery Competition, if for any reason any aspect of the Skill Lottery Competition is not capable of running as planned, including by reason of infection by computer virus, network failure, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures or any cause beyond the control of the Promoter which corrupts or affects the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the Lottery Competition. The Promoter may in its sole discretion cancel, terminate, modify or suspend a Skill Lottery Competition, or invalidate any affected entries. In the event that the Promoter closes a Skill Lottery Competition early, the Winner may be selected from all valid and eligible Entries received by the Promoter prior to the date of closure, except that the Promoter reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to close a Skill Lottery Competition early without selecting a Winner. In the event that a Skill Competition is closed without selecting a Winner, the Promoter will give all entrants Credit to enable them to replay equivalent tickets in a subsequent Skill Lottery Competition.
6.7 All Entrants are automatically entered onto the Promoter's database for the purpose of conveying information as to the status of their Skill Lottery Competition, as well as any future Promotions or Skill Lottery Competitions offered by the Promoter.
6.8 The Promoters decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into regarding the result.
