Game Rules include, without limitation, a restricted period (the number of days of which is determined by Provider) from the date that a User has won a particular prize game (“winner”) and until that winner can again register to play that level or any other level prize game again. Grand Prize Winners are players who have won 4 or more prize games or prizes that total $200 or more. A Grand Prize Winner is not allowed to compete or Win another prize for 365 days following their last prize win. The definition of “winner” with respect to the application of the restriction period also includes, but is not limited, each family member and any other person sharing the same address as the winner of the prize game.Provider will not be liable for any loss that You may incur as a result of someone else using Your Account, either with or without Your knowledge.

Each game offered on the Platform is a game of skill where the outcome is determined by a User’ skill rather than chance or luck. For more information regarding the games offered on the Platform, including competition formats, rules, scoring, controls and guidelines (collectively “Game Rules”), please see Winsomething.com/Rules. Each game offered on the Platform is subject to its own Game Rules. In the event You enter and/or participate in a game, You accept and agree to abide by all rules governing said game. Game Rules may be amended from time to time, so please check them often. Game Rules are deemed to be incorporated into these Terms and Conditions. It is Your responsibility to know and understand the Game Rules, including any required entry fees, if any, for any given game. The number of players participating in a game and their relative skills determine the result of all games; precise odds of winning are therefore unavailable.
Games made available on the Platform will be offered as either free or as Prize Gaming, which may require You to pay a fee in order to participate for the chance to win a prize. For Prize Gaming, any fees will be deducted from the funds deposited in Your Account. Free games will be made available to all authorized Users. To be eligible for Prize Gaming, You must be eighteen (18) years of age (or have reached the age of majority in the Jurisdiction in which You reside, if greater) and are not a person barred from receiving the Service under the laws of Your Jurisdiction as detailed below.
The results and winners of each game available on the Platform will be determined by the Provider in its sole discretion. In the event of a dispute relating to a game, including issues relating to Your compliance with these Terms and Conditions, You agree to be bound by the decision of Provider, which is final in all respects.
If Provider determines that operating a game is not feasible for any reason, including, but not limited to, a change in the risk of operating the game, or insufficient participation in the game, then the game may be ended by Provider and Provider shall owe You nothing.

Provider may require any User receiving any winnings to provide proof that he or she is eligible to participate as specified above.
If You open an Account and/or participate in a Prize Gaming event offered on the Website while located in a prohibited Jurisdiction, You will be in violation of the law of such jurisdiction and these Terms and Conditions, and subject to having Your Account suspended or terminated. Additionally, all Your deposits and winnings, if any, may be voided at the sole discretion of the Provider. You hereby agree that Provider cannot be held liable if laws applicable to You restrict or prohibit Your participation.

Game prizes may be virtual for use only in the Service or they may be “real.” The prize for all games will be disclosed at the outset of each game. All prizes are awarded AS IS and WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, express or implied, (including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose) by Provider.
Prize winners may be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility, a copy of the winner’s drivers license, a liability release and, where lawful, a publicity release within seven (7) days of issuance. If such documents are not returned within the specified time period, or if the prize or prize notification is unclaimed or returned as undeliverable, or if the prize winner is not in compliance with these Terms and Conditions, the prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to another winner at the Provider’s discretion.
Lifelines will be available for purchase and use in Prize Gaming. For more information regarding Lifelines, how to purchase Lifelines and their usage, please see WinSomething.com/Rules.

All payments into Your Account must be from a payment source on which You are the named account holder.
All deposits and withdrawals will be denominated in U.S. dollars unless otherwise expressly stated. If You make a deposit that is denominated in a currency other than U.S. dollars, please be aware that the funds will be converted into U.S. dollars by our third party payment processor or Your financial institution and You may be charged a service fee for such conversion. Please also be aware that our third party payment processors or Your financial institution may use different conversion rates for deposit and refund transactions. The conversion rate used is not under the control of the Provider and we recommend that You contact Your financial institution directly for more information.
It is the policy of the Platform, in compliance with United States Internal Revenue Service regulations, to send an IRS Form 1099 or other appropriate form to any person who wins in excess of $600 U.S. dollars on the Platform in any given year. Depending on the jurisdiction in which You reside, the Platform may also send You additional, similar tax forms. However, You remain solely responsible for paying all federal and other taxes in accordance with the laws that apply in Your state, province, and/or country of residence.
F. Withdrawal Process
You may request a withdrawal of funds from Your available cash account balance in Your Account at any time. The minimum withdrawal is $10.00 U.S. dollars or Your entire balance (if less than $5 U.S. dollars). Account holders with pending deposits must wait until those funds clear before requesting a withdrawal.
Processing of requested funds back to a credit card, debit card or PayPal account may take up to five (5) business days; provided, however, the Platform reserves the right to freeze Your Account and/or delay a request for withdrawal of funds pending completion of any investigation of reported or suspected abuse by a User requesting withdrawal of funds. If You do not receive Your withdrawal within five (5) business days, please contact customer support at help@WinSomething.com.
Provider reserves the right to require You or credit card company (if applicable) to submit verification of identification to ascertain the validity of a withdrawal request and the identity of the User. Withdrawal payments will not be made until such verification is received; if Provider has not received verification within 10 days, the withdrawal request will be cancelled and the Account in question will be suspended.
If Your Account is closed by the Provider for a violation of the Terms and Conditions, Your deposits may be voided and not returned to You. In such an event, Provider uses these funds to defray the costs of administration and enforcement of the Terms and Conditions.

Provider defines “Spam” as (i) electronic mail messages addressed to a recipient with whom the initiator does not have an existing business or personal relationship or is not sent at the request of, or with the express consent of, the recipient, (ii) messages posted to forum and message boards that are off-topic (unrelated to the topic of discussion), cross-posted to unrelated newsgroups, or posted in excessive volume; or (iii) solicitations posted to chat rooms, or to groups or individuals via Internet relay chat or “instant messaging” system.

If you wish to report any abuses, inappropriate online conduct or a violation of Provider’s Terms and Conditions, please forward all evidence of the same to help@WinSomething.com. Please refer responsibly!
D. Penalties for Abuse, Inappropriate Online Conduct and Violating Provider’s Terms and Conditions
Provider reserves the right to block, cancel or terminate Your Account without notice in cases of abusive behavior or suspicion of abuse, inappropriate online conduct, and/or for a violation of these Terms and Conditions, particularly in those instances detailed in Sections 11(A) and (B) above. Upon the receipt of a credible and validated complaint, Provider may elect to immediately suspend or terminate Your Account. (Suspension serves as a “final” warning and is intended to prevent You from continuing any abusive behavior.) If this occurs, then games that have already begun may be aborted by Provider; You must then compensate Provider for any problems arising there from. Provider will evaluate each validated abuse incident on a case-by-case basis and impose suspension or termination on Your Account in Provider’s sole discretion, and may void Your deposits and winnings, if any. Provider reserves the right to lift any suspension against You at any time, at its sole discretion. Provider reserves the right to institute civil or criminal proceedings against You and/or report You to the relevant regulatory or law enforcement authorities.

If you are buying goods or services and pay through WinSomething, we may also provide the seller with your shipping and billing address to help complete your transaction.
