MyBookie Terms of Service
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO PLAY. A PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCE OF WINNING.
Welcome to MyBookie (the “Website”), a Website that offers users the ability to compete for prizes in tournaments based on picking the outcomes of events in a non-gambling format where no purchase is necessary (the “Services”). This is a legal agreement (“Agreement”) between you and MyBookie, (the “Company”), the owner and operator of the Website. By accessing the Website you agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement, whether or not you register as a user of the website. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT OR IF YOU OBJECT TO ANYTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT, DO NOT USE THE WEBSITE OR THE SERVICES.

This Agreement is subject to change by the Company in its sole discretion at any time, with or without notice, effective upon posting on the Website. Your continued use of this Website after the posting of revisions to this Agreement will constitute your acceptance of such revisions. Please consult the end of this Agreement to determine when this Agreement was last revised.

We reserve the right to determine eligibility.
You are subject to the laws of the country, state, city or other legal entity, as applicable, in which you access the Website (your “Location”). Access to the Website may or may not be legal in your Location. The Company and the Website do not make any representation or warranty whatsoever as to whether the Website and/or the Services can be legally accessed in your Location. Rather, each Website user must determine the legality in any Location. The Company and the Website do not intend that the Website or the Services be accessed in any Location where prohibited.
The Company reserves the right to require proof of eligibility to use the Website and the Services and win prizes, such proof being in whatever form that the Company chooses in its sole and absolute discretion, including, but not limited to, government issued identification and proof of residence. The Company also reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to refuse access to the Website and the Services to any potential participant.
Employees, owners and paid contractors of the Company, or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates, are prohibited from winning any prizes on the Website. Any person violating this prohibition shall not be entitled to collect any prizes.
SERVICES AND INFORMATION ON THE WEBSITE
The Services and the Website are offered for entertainment purposes only. The activities on the Website do not constitute gambling. Guessing the outcomes of events (“Picks”) and entry into the Tournaments (as defined below) are free of charge to you and no purchase is necessary either to enter Tournaments, obtain Bookie-Points (as further described below), or win prizes. Thus, Website users are not permitted to risk their own money or property on the outcome of the games on the Website.
The Services may include both free and fee-based services, although no purchase is ever necessary to enter Tournaments, obtain Bookie Points, or win prizes. Whether a service is free or fee-based is determined at the sole discretion of the Company. The Company reserves the right to add, discontinue, modify or change in any way, in its sole discretion, any free or fee-based Service, including reclassifying a free Service as a fee-based Service or vice versa. The Company reserves the right to cancel or discontinue any Tournament at any time in its sole discretion and without liability of any kind whatsoever. All Services are subject to the terms of this Agreement and your compliance with such terms. Everything contained on the Website is subject to change at any time without notice. The Company, in its sole and absolute discretion, reserves the right at any time without notice or liability to: discontinue any Service, refuse Service to any Website user, prevent access to the Website and the Services, alter Website content and cancel any Website account. Your use of the Website means you agree to any such changes to the Website and the Services offered.
The Website may contain additional rules and policies regarding use of the Website and the Services. All such rules and policies are hereby incorporated by reference into this Agreement. By using the Website you agree that you are subject to the rules and policies posted from time to time on the Website and that you will abide by such rules and policies.
GAME DESCRIPTION AND RULES OF PLAY
There is no fee or purchase necessary to place Picks, enter Tournaments to win prizes, or use the basic Services of the Website. All Services, Picks, Tournament offerings, and rules described herein are subject to change at anytime in the sole and absolute discretion of the Company.
POINTS AND EVENT PICKS
The Website allows users to guess the outcome of events by using points (“Points”). Website users obtain Points in the following manner:
Initial Website registration: 1000 Points
In addition to the acquisition of Points as described above, users can compile additional Points by making correct Picks. There is no cost associated with the accumulation of Points; Points cannot be purchased, and additional points are not provided for making a purchase. The Website Services will allow users to track all Picks they place and all Tournament leaders. Points have no cash value whatsoever and can only be used for the purpose on the Website described herein. Other than as expressly permitted on the Website and detailed herein, you agree not to: (i) use Points for payment of any kind, (ii) sell Points to any person or entity in any fashion whatsoever or (iii) exchange Points for anything other than Chips (as described below).
Website users have the option to use accumulated Points to enter into tournaments (“Tournaments”) in which the user has the opportunity to compete against other Website users to win prizes. Points can be used to obtain Tournament chips (“Chips”) for participation in the Tournaments. Tournaments are scheduled at such times as determined by the Company but typically occur in weekly, monthly, yearly and seasonal formats. The winner of a Tournament is the participant that accumulated the most Chips during the course of the Tournament. The winner of some Tournaments will receive Bookie-Points (further described below). Winners of weekly, monthly, yearly and seasonal Tournaments will win prizes that may include, but not be limited to, merchandise. All Tournament prizes are pre-determined in the sole and absolute discretion of the Company at the beginning of the Tournament and do not vary based on the number of participants. Owners, employees, independent contractors or anyone affiliated with the Company or the Website are prohibited from participating in the Tournaments and/or winning prizes. The odds of winning a particular Tournament will depend on a number of factors, including but not limited to the number of entrants or participants in the Tournament and the skill of the respective participants in predicting outcomes of various events. Bookie-Points are for entertainment purposes only. Bookie-Points do not enhance your opportunity to win the games on MyBookie.
You acknowledge and agree that Tournaments are contests determined primarily by skill based on the ability to predict the outcome of certain events and manage such predictions against the predictions of other Tournament participants. You further acknowledge that no consideration or purchase of any kind is required in order to participate in the Tournaments.
Should you win a prize based upon your participation in a Tournament, the Company reserves the right to verify your identification and eligibility in whatever manner it deems appropriate, in its sole and absolute discretion, including, but not limited to, verification of your identity and shipping address.
The Company reserves the right to refuse, limit or discontinue Tournaments or Picks at any time in its sole and absolute discretion and without notice or liability. In the event that such Services are discontinued for any reason, whether such reason is in or out of the control of the Company, you shall not be entitled to any compensation. Once a Pick has been made as a part of a Tournament (collectively, a “Game Entry”), and such Game Entry has been placed on the Website, then Website users cannot change, modify or cancel the Game Entry. Game Entries will be accepted until such time as determined by the Company (the “Game Entry Cut-off”). After the Game Entry Cut-off, Website users will be prohibited from submitting Game Entries for the applicable event. A Game Entry will be deemed invalid if it is submitted after the Game Entry Cut-off or if it is incorrectly or erroneously submitted. Any Game Entry submitted based on an obvious error or incorrect set of rules will be deemed invalid. The Company reserves the right to limit the maximum number of Chips that can be risked on any event.
Specific game rules, including odds are for entertainment purposes only, and they are not intended to be relied on for gambling or any other unlawful purpose. The rules quoted at the time a Game Entry is made shall be used to determine whether a Game Entry is a winner or loser, provided, however, that in the case of an obvious error, the Company reserves the right to remedy the error in whatever manner it deems appropriate, in its sole and absolute discretion, including, but not limited to, undoing Game Entries so that they have no effect on Tournaments or Chips risked. The Company reserves the right to disclose to all Website users any errors with the Website or information posted on the Website and to remedy such errors in whatever manner it deems appropriate in its sole and absolute discretion. The Company and the Website shall not be liable for any such errors whatsoever. You agree that any Prize to which you become entitled, whether Bookie-Points or other valuable prizes, based upon obvious errors are subject to invalidation. You further agree to report to the Company, any Website errors of which you become aware.
Website users accept all responsibility for Game Entries submitted through their Website accounts, whether placed by the authorized Website user or by an unauthorized third party. Any Game Entries that are fraudulently submitted or submitted in circumvention of any applicable rules, including but not limited to, Game Entries submitted in conjunction with other parties in an attempt to defraud the Website and/or the Company shall be void. The determination of whether a game Entry is void shall be made by the Company in its sole and absolute discretion. The Company reserves the right to void any Game Entries and discontinue any user accounts that it believes have been used, or attempted to have been used, in a manner that defrauds the Website or the Company or for any illegal or illicit purpose. The Company further reserves the right to pursue any and all available remedies at law and equity for such activities.
The Company monitors all game and Tournament play and logs all transactions on the Website. In the event of a dispute involving Game Entries, Tournament results or any other game play related to the Services, the Company’s log of transactions shall be the final authority in settling the dispute.
RIGHTS TO POINTS
You acknowledge and agree that you have no rights or entitlements to the Points or Bookie-Points provided to you on the Website and you waive all rights to such Points or Bookie-Points under any applicable statute, regulation or common law. The Company reserves the right to eliminate the Points or Bookie-Points in your account at any time, in its sole discretion, without notice or compensation to you. Points or Bookie-Points do not constitute legal tender in any way and the Company and the Website have no obligation to make any payment or award any prize to you in exchange for Points or Bookie-Points. All prizes awarded to you are in the nature of a gift and not compensation for your efforts.

Prize winners will be responsible for any federal and state withholdings and/or applicable federal, state, and local taxes and any customs charges or tariffs and for any other fees or costs associated with the prize they may receive. All prize winners may be required to furnish their social security number/tax identification number for federal and state tax reporting and withholding.
According to the Internal Revenue Service, a winner is required to pay taxes on the fair market value of the prize won. The fair market value is the price the prize item would sell for on the open market. For example, an individual wins a vacation with a fair market value of $5,000. This amount should be reported as income for the year on his/her federal income tax forms. The addition of the $5,000 to a person’s yearly income may move the winner into a higher tax bracket subsequently causing an individual to owe more in taxes. In some promotions, taxes may be withheld by the promoter. However, it is ultimately the winner’s responsibility to ensure that the taxes are paid. Any persons interested in participating in the games offered on MyBookie.net should consider their ability to pay the taxes if they do indeed win.
