How to Enter. There are two (2) methods of entry:
Method 1: Staking Method of Entry
For each single unit of MATIC token staked to the Ethereum blockchain via Omni, Participants will receive one (1) Sweepstakes entry.
Participants who stake an amount of MATIC will receive an additional number of entries for maintaining their staked position throughout the Promotion Period. The following equation will be used to calculate the additional number of entries awarded to Participants who maintain their staked MATIC positions:
Time boost * ceiling (1 - (days_since_start/(total_days+1))), where ceiling = (1 - days_since_start/total_days+1) rounded up to the nearest integer and Time boost = 20 (number of days in the first round)
If a Participant un-stakes an amount of MATIC during the Promotion Period, they will relinquish a number of entries equivalent to the prorated amount of entries originally awarded to them for staking such an amount of MATIC.
Further, Participants who enter via Method 1: Staking Method of Entry will gain access to a unique referral link within Omni. Participants will be awarded additional entries when they invite another Participate to enter the Sweepstakes, and that referred Participant also enters the sweepstakes via Method 1: Staking Method of Entry. The Participant that refers another Participant will receive additional entries in the amount of ten percent (10%) of the referred Particpant’s number of entries. The referred Participant will also receive additional entries, in the amount of five percent (5%) of the number of entries held by the Participant whose unique referral code they used to enter the Sweepstakes.
Throughout the Promotion Period, Company reserves the right to announce additional methods of obtaining Sweepstakes entries (”Missions and Boosts”). Missions and Boosts will be made available exclusively to Participants who enter the Sweepstakes via Method 1: Staking Method of Entry.
Method 2: Alternate Method of Entry (“AMOE”)
To enter into the Sweepstakes online without staking MATIC tokens on the Ethereum blockchain via Omni (Method 1: Staking Method of Entry), complete the following form at this link: AMOE link. Participants who enter the Sweepstakes through this AMOE must include all requested information outlined in the AMOE form to be considered for an entry. For each completed AMOE form submitted via the AMOE link, Participants will receive one (1) Sweepstakes entry. Requests for confirmation of receipt of AMOE submissions will not be acknowledged. AMOE Entries must be received no later than 7 p.m. ET on January 8, 2023.
For All Entry Methods. Regardless of which method of entry the Participant utilizes to participate in the Sweepstakes, the use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute over the identity of a Potential Winner, the entry will be declared by the authorized account holder of the email address submitted to the Company via the Omni mobile application (or submitted with the Alternate Method of Entry form, as applicable) (“Participant’s Email Address”), and a Potential Winner may be required to provide identification sufficient to show that they are the authorized account holder of the email account. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned to the applicable email account.
Random Drawings. Three (3) Potential Winners (“Potential Winners”) will be randomly drawn in a single drawing, from all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period. The random drawings will be conducted by the Company, whose decisions are final and binding. The odds of winning a prize depends upon the number of eligible entries received.
Potential Winner Notifications. Potential Winners will be notified in the Omni app that they were randomly selected as Potential Winners, and will be prompted and required to fill out a TypeForm requesting personal details, including: Full Name, Participant’s Email Address, Date of Birth, and Country of Residence. Potential Winners must submit this TypeForm by January 9th, at 7:00pm ET. Once the TypeForm is submitted to Company, Potential Winners will be contacted via email at Participants’s Email Address by a representative of the Company with instructions on how to claim their prize and will be required to respond to such email within seventy-two (72) hours of the date and time email was sent by Company. Potential Winners will be required to complete and return either an IRS Form 1099-MISC for those who are residents of the United States or an IRS Form W8-BEN for those who are residents of a country other than the United States (the copies of such 1099-MISC and W8-BEN forms will be filed with the IRS), as well as any other document needed to validate eligibility (the “Documents”) within three (3) days (including Saturdays, Sundays, and Holidays) of first attempted delivery of the same. In the event a Potential Winner cannot be contacted, fails to respond to the email within the allotted time, refuses the prize, fails or refuses to timely return completed Documents, or if a prize/prize notification is returned as undeliverable, Potential Winner will be disqualified without further notice and an alternate winner may be selected. If Potential Winner returns the Documents and it is revealed that they reside in an Excluded Territory, Potential winner will be disqualified without further notice and an alternate winner will be selected.
ALL POTENTIAL WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY COMPANY, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING. A PARTICIPANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL THAT PARTICIPANT’S ELIGIBILITY AND COMPLIANCE WITH ALL REQUIREMENTS TO CLAIM A PRIZE HAVE BEEN VERIFIED AND FULFILLED, AND THE PARTICIPANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE.
