Game Rules

It is important that you read and understand these Game Rules before playing Fitzdares Fantasy’s Big5 Game (Game). By taking part in the Game, you are agreeing that you have read and agreed to these Game Rules.

1. You must be 18 or over and live in the UK to play each Game.

2. It costs £3 for each entry.

3. Pick the correct result of each fixture to earn points. The less likely results earn you more points. Points are based on betting probability to ensure the Game is as fair as possible.

4. Pick ‘Deciders’ that will boost or reduce your score. Each Game there will be different Deciders (e.g. pick a team to score exactly one goal). Check out the Game every week, as the Deciders will vary from time to time.

5. The aim of the Game is to accumulate the most points from the chosen fixtures & Deciders to finish at the top of the leaderboard.

6. To enter and play each Game we must receive your picks before:

  1. Matchday 1: 13:45pm on Saturday 12 June 2021
  2. Matchday 2: 19:45pm on Friday 18 June 2021
  3. Matchday 3: 19:45pm on Tuesday 22 June 2021
  4. Round of 16: 19:45pm on Saturday 26 June 2021
  5. Quarter-finals: 16:45pm on Friday 2 July 2021

7. You may have a maximum of ten entries. If you have ten entries, each entry is separate. You may not change or swap selections from one entry to the other.

8. Prize Pool – you are competing to win a share of the ‘pool’ of prize money generated by the total entry fees minus Commission (see rule 16), as set out in the example Prize Pool tables.

9. If one or more of the chosen fixtures is rescheduled at any time up to 23:59 on the day before the Game starts, we will remove the rescheduled fixtures from the Game. We will endeavour to replace the rescheduled fixtures with new fixtures. Subject to rule 10 below, if the fixture is replaced, we will use your selection of ‘home win’, ‘away win’ or ‘draw’ as the default for the new fixture. The same principle applies in the Deciders: your original selections will be transferred to the new fixture (e.g. if you choose an ‘away team’ to score 1 goal, your selection will default to the ‘away team’ for that new Decider).

10. You will have the opportunity to amend your selection (including for new fixtures and Deciders) up until the deadlines set out below. It is your responsibility to amend your selection, particularly in the event a fixture is replaced.

  1. Matchday 1: 13:45pm on Saturday 12 June 2021
  2. Matchday 2: 19:45pm on Friday 18 June 2021
  3. Matchday 3: 19:45pm on Tuesday 22 June 2021
  4. Round of 16: 19:45pm on Saturday 26 June 2021
  5. Quarter-finals: 16:45pm on Friday 2 July 2021

11. If a fixture is rescheduled for any reason on the day or after the Game starts, we will void that fixture and remove it from the Game. In this event the Deciders will also be voided and removed from the Game. The Game will be scored based solely on the results of the fixtures that remain.  However, if there are only 1 or 2 games remaining we reserve the right to void the Game. In that event we will contact you via email to explain the Game is void and details on returning your entry fee.

12. Results are scored based on the final result of the fixture. This includes stoppage time, extra time & penalty shootouts (if applicable). Your score at the end of the fixture is final. We do not award retrospective points (e.g. if a red card is rescinded following a panel review, you will not be awarded any retrospective points).

13. If multiple entries tie for a position on the leaderboard dead heat rules apply, meaning we will divide the winnings proportionally across all the positions that make up the tie (unless you are tied in the last eligible position within the Final Group – see 15 below for more details on this tiebreaker exception).

14. The Prize Pool is guaranteed to be a minimum of £10,000 for Matchday 1 Game. For Matchdays 2, 3, Round of 16 and Quarter-final Games please check fantasy.fitzdares.com for the latest Prize Pool guarantee. The Prize Pool will increase as more people enter the Game. For example, if 5,000 people enter the Game and each buy one entry the Prize Pool will be £12,000 (total entry fees minus our Commission).

15. When the Game ends, the Prize Pool will be split based on your leaderboard position. See the guide payouts shown in the Prize Pool table on this page.

16. Commission – 20% of the total entry fees go to Fitzdares & Network Gaming.

17. ‘Refer-a-friend’ promotion: if you refer 3 friends, who all:

  1. register an account;
  2. enter a team; and
  3. pay at least £3,
    you will earn 1 free entry to the next Fitzdares Fantasy Premier League Big5 Game.

18. All payouts will be made into your wallet within 1 working day of the Game finishing.

19. Network Gaming and their affiliates reserve the right to void, suspend, cancel, or amend the Game where it becomes necessary to do so. We may also amend or withdraw any element of the Game for reasons beyond our reasonable control, including but not limited to strike, lock-out, labour dispute, illness, act of God, natural disaster, adverse weather conditions, war, riot, civil commotion, accident, public health concern in relation to potential infection, epidemic or pandemic, malicious damage, fire, flood and/or storm, compliance with law or governmental order, rule, regulation or direction, breakdown of plant, machinery or transportation.

  1. As shown above, the amount / percentages for each position may vary, depending on the number of entries in the Game. We will communicate the exact amount / percentages for each position after each Game goes live.
  2. The Prize Pool is structured to ensure 1-in-4 entries win. The Final Group contains all the remaining entries that fall outside position 1-1000 but fall within the top 25% of entries.
  3. In the event that the last eligible position within the Final Group is tied, your leaderboard position will be determined by a tiebreaker. The tiebreaker will be decided on whichever entry was purchased first.
  4. In the event there are fewer than 4,000 entries, the Prize Pool percentages for each position will increase. We will communicate the exact number & percentages after each Game goes live.
