  10. Each contestant may authorize up to three (3) proxies to submit their weekly selections.

  11. Contestants and proxies can submit weekly selections at any Circa | Sports location during each selection period (10:00 AM Thursday – 3:00 PM Saturday).

  13. Circa | Sports will provide each entrant with a receipt once a selection has been made. Selection receipts at Circa | Sports kiosks and betting windows will be a physical ticket reflecting the selections made, and such receipts represent the official entry of record for the contestant’s weekly selections. Receipts on the Circa | Sports mobile app will be in the form of a digital confirmation screen reflecting selections made, and such receipts represent the official entry of record for the contestant’s weekly selections. No other documents provided by Circa | Sports shall be considered official record of weekly selections.

  14. Contestants may only submit weekly selections once per week per Contest entry, unless a one-time exception is granted by Circa | Sports management in its sole and absolute discretion. Contestants/proxies cannot request voids or changes to weekly selections after the 3:00 PM Saturday deadline or after any of the selected games have begun.

  15. Prize Structure:

    1. The prize pool will consist of a guaranteed $1.5 million in total. The prize pool will be funded with Contest entry fees and supplemented by Circa | Sports should the number of entries be less than 1,500.

    2. Should the number of entries total more than 1,500, all additional entry fees will be split equally between the Quarter MVP prizes.

    3. Tie-breaking rules will be applied to determine only first place. In the event of a tie for first place, the first-place prize winner will be determined based on the contestant that accumulated the most Contest points during the final five (5) weeks of the regular season. If total points accumulated during the final five (5) weeks are equal, then the tie-breaker will revert to the contestant that has accumulated the most contest points during Weeks 9-12. If total points accumulated during Weeks 9-12 are equal, then the tie-breaker will revert to the contestant that has accumulated the most Contest points during Weeks 5-8. If total points accumulated during Weeks 5-8 are equal, then the tie-breaker will revert to the contestant that has accumulated the most Contest points during Weeks 1-4. In the event of a tie after application of all tiebreakers, multiple first place winners will be declared and the aggregate prize money will be split equally amongst the number of contestants tied for first place.

    4. All ties for finishing positions other than first place will be split evenly among all contestants in the tie (For example, if two contestants are tied for second place, the prizes for second and third place will be added together and split evenly.
