Terms and Conditions (Updated 01/01/2019)
- This Competition is open to persons aged 18 years or over who are resident in the UK, Isle of Man, Channel Islands and Republic of Ireland. Proof of age and identity may be required. Entry to the Competition is free.
- Employees of Hestview Limited, Sky UK Limited and Infinity Works Consulting involved in the operation of the Competition are not eligible to win prizes.
- In order to enter the Competition players are required to register a Sky Games account on selector.skysports.com or its related mobile apps, upon becoming available (the “Mobile Apps”). Only one account is allowed per person. Multiple accounts will be closed. Only one entry per Competition is allowed per person. If the Promoter has reasonable grounds to believe that multiple accounts have been opened by or are under the control of the same person, all such accounts shall be closed and all entries by such player and/or accounts will be disqualified from participating in the Competition or receiving any prizes. Players are required to register in their own name and any player found to be registering in the name of any other person will be disqualified.
- Players will be deemed to have accepted these terms and conditions and agreed to be bound by them when entering this Competition. These terms and conditions will apply for the duration of the Competition.
- To take part in each Sky Sports Racing Selector Competition (the “Competition”), a player must select one horse in all the races shown in each Competition and also submit an answer to the tie-break question before submitting their Competition entry. Each Competition shall consist of either six or seven races, as solely determined by the Promoter.
- Competition selections must be made before the official scheduled off-time of the first Competition race.
- Players can edit their Competition selections up to the official scheduled off-time of the first Competition race.
- If a player selects a non-runner, their selection automatically transfers on to the SP favourite in that race. If there are joint or co favourites in that race, their selection becomes the joint or co favourite with the lowest racecard number.
- The Competition closes before the start time of the first race in the Competition. Once each Competition in the week has closed entrants cannot change their weekly predictions for that Competition. Once an entry has been submitted, it can be changed before the closing time via the Website or Mobile Apps (upon becoming available).
- The Competition prize winners will be determined as follows:
- Friday’s and Mondays’s Jackpot Competition: In order to win the Friday and/or Monday Competition Jackpot Prize of £1,000 (unless otherwise specified), a player must correctly select all 7 winners which take part in a Competition comprising of 7 races, or a player must correctly select all 6 winners which take part in a Competition comprising of 6 races (as applicable) of the Competition races. If two or more players select all 7 winners in a Competition comprising of 7 races or all 6 winners in a Competition comprising of 6 races (as applicable), then the winner is the player who gets closest to the answer of the tie-break question. If a tie-break cannot settle players, then the Competition prize will be split equally amongst those players. The £1,000 prize (unless otherwise specified) can only be won if all seven Competition races or all six Competition races (as applicable) are run (no abandoned races). See clause 16 below for prize details if any Competition race does not run.
Game Consolation: If there is no winner of a Friday, Monday or any other race day added by the Promotor, of a Competition Jackpot Prize (see clause 11), then a Consolation Prize of £100 (unless otherwise specified) will be awarded to the best performing player. The best performing player is decided by the performance ranking in a seven race Competition or in a six race Competition (as applicable), in descending order, below:

- In the event of a tie, the winner will be settled using the tie-break question. If a tie-break cannot settle winners, then the prize will be awarded to the player who submitted their Competition entry earliest of those players, who are tied for first place and achieved a correct tie-break answer. The time of entry will be determined as per the timestamp on each player’s entry held on Infinity Works Consulting servers. The timestamp on a player’s entry will reflect the time that the player submitted their entry. If the player edited their entry after first submission but before the game round closed then the timestamp will reflect the time that the final edit was confirmed by the player. The £100 prize (unless otherwise specified) can only be won if all seven Competition races are run (no abandoned races). See clause 16 below for prize details if any Competition race does not run.
- Additional Prizes and Competitions: Additional prizes, specials and/or Competitions may be introduced during the Competition and/or each week at the discretion of the Promoter. These will be in addition to the prizes and/or Competitions outlined above. In the event that additional prizes and/or Competitions are introduced, the Promoter will publish and notify players of any additional terms and conditions as they may be applicable.
- The winning distance that decides the tie-break question is settled as per Press Association Sport.
- If any Competition race is postponed, abandoned or not completed the race will be considered void. If only six Competition races are completed in a seven race Competition or only five Competition races are completed in a six race Competition for any reason during any round, the Jackpot Competition prize available for that round will be reduced to £500. If only five Competition races are completed in a seven race Competition or only four Competition races are completed in a six race Competition during any round the Jackpot Competition prize available for that week will be reduced to £250. If four or less Competition races are completed in a seven race Competition or only three or less Competition races are completed in a six race Competition during any Competition round, there shall be no prize available and the Competition round shall be deemed void. If 6 or fewer races comprise a seven race Competition or only 5 or fewer races comprise six race Competition, then the Game Consolation Prize will not be available.
- If any Competition race is postponed, abandoned or not completed, the race will be considered void, and no players will be eligible for the Game Consolation Prize.

- The Promoter will not be liable for prizes that do not reach the winners for reasons beyond its reasonable control.

Winners will be required to verify (with evidence satisfactory to the Promoter) their age, identity, residence and other requested verification information to the satisfaction of the Promoter before they are eligible to receive a prize. Any public announcement (including on Sky properties (TV, online etc.)) will be pending verification unless otherwise stated and should not be considered final confirmation.
