Force Majeure Event

Game Rules

For all Entrants, no matter their location, to win a League, they must use their skill and knowledge of professional sports information and fantasy sports rules to accumulate fantasy points. Fantasy points are accumulated through the performance of real-world athletes across multiple sporting matches. Each fantasy lineup must include fifteen real-world athletes from at least three different real-world teams, so that each entry into a Fantasy Rugger League shall be made up of players drawn from a minimum of two real-life sporting matches. No lineup shall include more than three athletes from the same real-world team. Fantasy Rugger strictly prohibits the winning of any League based solely on the single performance of an individual athlete. The site will prevent you from saving a lineup that would violate any of these restrictions.

You will be presented with the pool of players that are playing in the subsequent gameweek. These players are selected for the following positions:

  • Prop x 2
  • Hooker
  • Lock x 2
  • Flanker x 2
  • No 8
  • Scrum Half
  • Fly Half
  • Wing x 2
  • Centre x 2
  • Full back

For tournament games, you will also select a substitute player for each position.

You will have to select your players within a salary cap determined at the discretion of Fantasy Rugger. This salary cap is subject to change. Each player is assigned a fictional salary. The addition of your team’s individual salaries must sum to less that the salary cap. The site will prevent you from saving a lineup that would violate any of these restrictions.

Once you have entered your team, you will be asked to select a captain and kicker. Your captain will receive double points and your kicker will receive points for penalties, conversions & drop goals. Only one player per team can be the kicker and therefore receive points for kicks.

Once you have selected your team, you will be brought to the leagues lobby where you can select the leagues you want to enter. You can enter a free league and play for fun, or you can enter a paid league and play for real money. The entry amount for each league will be displayed beside the league name. If you click to enter this league, you will be prompted to confirm. Once you confirm, the entry fee will be deducted from your account.

Your team of real life players will receive points based on the following scoring system:

Paid League Term and Payout Structures

Fantasy Rugger offers Leagues involving multiple professional rugby real-life sporting events. Paid Leagues will take place on a single day, multiple days or longer as specified in each league rules. Winners are determined by the criteria stated in each League’s rules.

When an entrant joins a paid league, 90% of the entry amount is added to the prize pot. There will be two different types of paid leagues that an entrant can choose/create: Winner Takes All and Top 3.

The percentage admin fee is subject to change at the discretion of Fantasy Rugger.

Prizes for free leagues

Prize Terms Tie: If two or more users are tied on points, any prize(s) will be awarded to the user whose team scored the most tries during the tournament in question. If users remain tied, the user whose team registered the most assists is the winner. In the unlikely event that users continue to tie, the team that was registered first will be declared the winner. When announcing winners, Fantasy Rugger aspire to notify users as swiftly as possible and with a delay of no more than 28 days after the last match in each round has been completed.

Prizes Entrants are only eligible to win one overall prize. An overall prize is categorized by a league or leaderboard that includes all games taking place during the tournament in its scoring calculation. The entrant who accumulates the highest overall points total is eligible to choose which of these prizes they are awarded. Prizes will then default to the next highest scoring entrant until all have been awarded. Tie break rules apply.

a. Prize Notification: Winners will be notified via email sent within a week of the end of the Promotion Period. It is the sole responsibility of the Entrant to notify Fantasy Rugger during the Promotion Period if his or her e-mail address has changed. To do so, click on the "Contact Us" link on the Website, then follow the instructions. All winners are required to co-operate with Fantasy Rugger and the Promoter to publicise their win as Fantasy Rugger deems appropriate. Failure to comply with this rule may result in disqualification of the entry. Prizes will be awarded in accordance with the details set out above and in the Prizes Page, as amended from time to time.

b. Substitution; Taxes. No cash or other prize substitution, assignment or transfer of prizes permitted, except at Fantasy Rugger and/or the Promoter's sole discretion due to prize unavailability. Fantasy Rugger reserve the right to substitute a prize with one of comparable value or greater value. THE WINNER IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL LOCAL, FEDERAL AND STATE TAXES ASSOCIATED WITH THE RECEIPT OR USE OF ANY PRIZE. Prizes awarded in the form of gift cards can only be used for future purchases at the location stated on the gift card. Gift cards are NOT redeemable/exchangeable for cash. Other restrictions may apply.

c. Prize Delivery. Prize winners should allow up to 28 days following confirmation to receive their prize.

d. No Warranty. Entrants acknowledge that the Promoter and each of its respective agencies or related companies have not made nor are in any manner responsible for any warranty, representation or guarantee, express or implied, in fact or in law, relative to any prize, including but not limited to its quality. The terms and conditions of any third party supplier may apply to a prize as indicated.

e. Eligibility. Only Entrants who are entitled under local laws to receive a prize and who reside in countries where the Game is not prohibited or restricted by law will be eligible to win a prize. Entrants for free leagues where the prize is gambling vouchers must be 18 years or older. Fantasy Rugger reserves the right to request proof of identity and/or to verify eligibility conditions before awarding any prize.

 

Prizes for paid leagues

Fantasy Rugger offers many different types of Leagues. For each one, Fantasy Rugger announces the entry fees in advance on the league page. Prizes for each are subject to change based on the number of Entrants or total entry fees for that League. After each League ends, prizes are awarded. Prizes are awarded to Entrants who accumulate the most fantasy points as set forth in League details.. When an Entrant wins a League, the prize for that League will be added to the Entrant’s account balance generally within seventy two hours. If there is a tie/draw in a specific League among Fantasy Rugger users, the prize will be divided evenly between all tied players, unless otherwise specified in the League rules. For a summary of entry fees and prizes for currently open Leagues, please visit this link. Fantasy Rugger may offer “free” leagues for entertainment purposes, without the possibilities of a prize or prizes being awarded. Prize calculations are based on Leagues results as of the time when Fantasy Rugger tabulates final point scoring. Points scored are based on the statistical gathering information by our in house team. Fantasy Rugger waits for a certain period to elapse to confirm the winner(s) of a league after the final game in the League is completed so that we can correct any major errors. Once prizes are awarded to the winners, scoring results will not be changed regardless of any official adjustments made by professional sports leagues. Note that this is not the same situation as a case where a correction needs to be made after settlement due to a problem with the data feed or the settlement process. In these cases the settlement process (including payment) may be reversed and games resettled correctly. League prizes may not be substituted or transferred. All taxes associated with the receipt or use of any prize is the sole responsibility of the winner. If any legal authority challenges prize awards, Fantasy Rugger may, in its sole discretion, determine whether or not to award such prizes.

In the event of a tie between players where the prize(s) cannot be evenly split the entry with the highest score without the captain points be used as a tiebreaker, proceeding to team with the highest individual score, then the second-highest, third-highest, etc. player as needed to break the tie. In the event the tie remains unbroken, the player who submitted their team first will be declared the winner.

Notification

Winners may be asked to return via e-mail or regular mail an affidavit of eligibility and appropriate tax forms. A winner’s failure to comply with such requests can result in disqualification. Any prize notification returned as undeliverable may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate winner. A list of winners for each competition period may be obtained by written request to: Fantasy Rugger Limited, 42 Dawson Street, Dublin 2.
