MORTAL KOMBAT

PREDICTION CONTEST RULES

WHO CAN ENTER:

Contestants must be at least 17 years old and reside in the United States or Canada. Employees of ESL, Microsoft, NetherRealm, Warner Brothers, their respective affiliates, subsidiaries, advertising and promotion agencies, suppliers and their immediate family members or those living in the same household of each are not eligible to participate in the Contest. The Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Void where prohibited.

By participating, you agree to be fully and unconditionally bound by these Rules, and you represent and warrant that you meet the eligibility requirements set forth herein. In addition, you agree to accept the decisions of ESL as final and binding. The Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws.

HOW TO ENTER:

Eligible contestants must have a valid registered Twitch.tv account to participate. The contest is free – no purchase is necessary to enter.

HOW TO PLAY:

Go to the twitch channel: http://www.twitch.tv/netherrealm

You can find a schedule of broadcasts here: http://en.pro.eslgaming.com/mkx/proleague/schedule/

During each broadcast, a new round starts before every match. The bot will post in chat and open a 3 minute window for you to place your predictions. Notifications will appear at the 2 minute mark, the 1 minute mark, and finally at 10 seconds before closing.

Each contestant begins with 10 points. Contestants will have the opportunity to bet points predicting the outcome of each match. The minimum bet is 1 point and you can always bet up to 10 points even when you have 0 points. You cannot have negative points. Otherwise, your maximum bet is limited to the number of points you currently have. Points do not represent any form of legal currency and are not redeemable for value.

Make sure to check the website once you place the bet as there is no way to view whether or not a bet has gone through. After a prediction round has been closed, Contestants wait for the match to begin. At the end of the match, a winner will be triggered and prediction points will be awarded in the chat along with a link. Points are awarded at static, even odds. At the end of each broadcast, contestants can view the leaderboard to determine the winner. The odds of winning depend on the Contestant’s predictive skills and the number of eligible Contestants.
