- Winner Selection and Odds.
On or about November 27th, 2017 Sponsor will select one (1) potential Grand Prize winner if a finalist is determined to be the sole finalist who has not yet picked the outcome of two (2) games wrong is weeks prior. Odds of becoming a Finalist depend on the number of eligible participants; odds of a Finalist winning, 1 in 23.
Each week during the promotional period all twenty-three (23) finalists will have a list of games on 960theref.com to choose from. All finalists will pick one team they think will win (no point spread) each week from the games provided on the website. Finalists may pick a team (winner) only one time during the promotional period and must pick a new team each week. All submissions from the finalists must be received by 6pm on the Friday of the current week beginning Friday 9/1 to 960 The Ref's email in-box (email@example.com). 960 The Ref’s email inbox will be the official time keeper.
Each week approved games to choose from will be posted on 960theref.com by Monday @ 4pm.
After two wrong picks the finalist will be eliminated. All finalists not eliminated will continue on to the next week’s games. The last person remaining that has not been eliminated at the conclusion of games the week 11/20-11/25 will be declared the winner. If, after any week during the promotional period PRIOR to the final week, everyone is eliminated without a single winner, then those qualifiers who were not eliminated entering that week will be brought back to continue the contest using "single elimination" and may not use teams they picked prior. If a single finalist is left at any point during the promotional period they will be declared the winner. If at the end of the promotional period we have a tie, a tie breaker will be used to determine the winner. At the beginning of the promotional period all qualifiers will submit, what they believe is to be the total amount of points scored this season by the University of Georgia football team. If no submission of points if given by 6pm on Friday, 9/1, then official submission of points will be zero.
If after the first tie breaker we are still tied, then a coin flip to be done by 960 The Ref management will determine the winner.
