The Holt & Dimondale Insurance Agency Pro Football Challenge (“Sweepstakes”) begins on September 5, 2018 at 3:00 pm Eastern Time (“ET”) and runs through the posted cut-off times each applicable week through February 3, 2019 (“Promotion Period”). The time will be determined by Sponsor’s timekeeping systems.  Sponsor will have the sole discretion in determining the timeliness of any action or inaction related to this Sweepstakes. All times mentioned in these Official Rules are Eastern Time unless expressly noted otherwise.

By participating, entrants agree to be bound by the Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor. 

 

HOW TO PLAY: Select the team that you will believe will be the winner of each designated pro football game and predict the score for the winning and losing team for designated the tie-breaker game. You may enter your picks and score predictions until five (5) minutes before the start of each game. If you fail to select a winner for any game, your pick will be the team that was selected by the majority of participants. However, you are not eligible to win a weekly prize if you fail to select a winner for more than one game in a given week, and you are not eligible to win the grand prize unless you complete your picks for each game for at least 11 weeks. The point value for selecting the winner of each game is as follows:

Regular Season Games – 1 point
Wild Card and Divisional Playoff Game – 4 points
Conference Finals – 8 points
Championship Game – 16 points 

If a game is canceled, postponed or forfeited for any reason, or if a game ends in a tie, no points will be awarded for that game. 

The participant with the most points for each applicable week of the pro football season will be deemed a Weekly Scripps Local Market Winner. If applicable, the participant with the highest total "net score" at the end of the season will be deemed the Overall Scripps Local Market Grand Prize Winner. A participant's total "net score" will be determined by subtracting the participant's four (4) lowest weekly scores from his/her total score for all 21 weeks.

In the event of a tie for a weekly prize, the tie breaker will be set forth as follows from among all tied participants: (a) the score from the winning team will be subtracted from the actual score obtained by the winning team, and the difference multiplied by itself, (b) the Score from the losing team will be subtracted from the actual score obtained by the losing team, and the difference is multiplied by itself, (c) the result in (a) is added to the result in (b) to obtain the "Score Approximation." The participant with the lowest "Score Approximation" will be deemed the winner. If a tie remains, the winner will be selected at random from among those still tied. In the event of a tie for the grand prize, the participant with the lowest total "Score Approximation" for week 21, the championship game, will be declared the winner, then working back through the Score Approximations for each of the preceding weeks.
