CONTEST ACTIVITIES AND CONTEST POINTS: Entrants may complete the below contest activities to receive Contest Points:

 

  • Entrants may select up to four of sixteen professional Madden video game players (each, a “Fantasy Player”) each week to create the Entrant’s “Weekly Fantasy Lineup” for that week. For each of four weeks during the Contest Period (schedule below), each of the sixteen Fantasy Players will participate in three one-on-one video game competitions (each, a “Weekly Game”). Sponsor will report the results of each Weekly Game at www.muthead.com/fantasy (such results, for a particular week, being the “Weekly Results”);
    • For every point scored by a Fantasy Player on Entrant’s Weekly Fantasy Lineup for a particular week, as reported in the Weekly Results, Entrant shall receive one (1) Contest Point.
    • For every Weekly Game that a Fantasy Player on Entrant’s Weekly Fantasy Lineup for a particular week wins, as reported in the Weekly Results, Entrant shall receive fifty (50) Contest Points.
    • An Entrant’s Weekly Fantasy Lineup will “lock” and Entrant will not be able to change their Weekly Fantasy Lineup for the upcoming week each Sunday at 11 PM ET.
    • An Entrant may not include any Fantasy Player on the Entrant’s Weekly Fantasy Lineup for consecutive weeks. For example, an Entrant may have the same Fantasy Player on the Entrant’s Weekly Fantasy Lineup for weeks 1 and 3, but not for weeks 2 and 3.
    • Entrants who fail to fill their Weekly Fantasy Lineups in a timely manner for a particular week forfeit any Contest Points associated with that week. This includes Entrants who enter the Contest after Weekly Fantasy Lineups have locked for one or more weeks.

 

  • Sponsor may make available alphanumeric codes (each, a “Bonus Code”) in conjunction with Weekly Games livestreams on the Twitch platform. Any Bonus Code issued may be redeemed by each Entrant at www.muthead.com/fantasy within one hour of being issued by Sponsor. When redeemed, a Bonus Code will provide the Entrant with a predetermined amount of Contest Points.
