PREDICTION CONTESTS

A. USERS

Any adult natural person who has his or her residence in Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg or France can participate in the prediction contests of www.tifogame.be.

Minors may participate in the forecasts provided that they have obtained the prior consent of their parents (or of the person exercising parental authority). If a minor participates, this means that he/she has obtained such permission. Tifogroup reserves the right to request such permission.

A player can only make use of at most 1 account. Tifogroup is free to remove accounts in case of reasonable doubt.

B. KINDS OF PREDICTION CONTESTS

There are two types of prediction contests. The first type deals with the direction of the result. The second type of prediction contest is about one specific result.

In the first type, participants indicate the direction of the outcome before the game starts. These results could whether be “Home team wins”, a “draw” or “away team wins”. In the second type, the correct score must be predicted.

The period of the prediction can vary from the whole of the EC to one or more matches of the EC.In the case of a tie, the tiebreaker questions are taken into account. Your answers to the tiebreaker questions are compared to the effective answers to the tiebreaker questions and then added up. The person who is closest to the effective answer to all the tiebreaker questions combined, is ranked highest. An example: You choose 7 corners and 10 shots on goal. In the match there are 6 corners and 12 shots on goal. You end up with a difference of 1 corner and 2 shots on goal. This gives you a total difference of 3. In case of a prediction with 2 or less games, a third rating question will be taken into account. If there would still be an ex-aequo after the tiebreaker questions, the entering time of the prono will be taken into account: the earliest completed prono wins.

In order to participate validly, the knowledge question must be correct. Tifogame is a competition, if the knowledge question is answered incorrectly, that player cannot score points.

Tifogroup is free to shut down every prediction contest at every moment without awarding the prize to the winner.

C. CLASSIFICATIONS (RANKINGS)

PREDICTION CONTEST CLASSIFICATION (PREDICTION CONTEST RANKING)

A classification is kept up to date for each prediction contest. A prediction contest clearly states the period over which it runs. A start and end date are clearly indicated. After each match, the classification within the group is adjusted. The participant who is in first place after the last match of the last day of play of a prediction is the winner of this competition. This participant wins the posted prize. The same reasoning applies to places 2 and 3, etc.

E. REWARDS FOR THE WINNERS

The organizer of a prediction contest provides a prize for the winner(s) of the prediction. The prize will be displayed within the prediction contest. There is always more explanation available about the prize. Tifogroup is not responsible for providing or awarding the prize unless the competition is organized by Tifogroup itself. This is clearly indicated by the name of the prediction contest and by the posted logo for each competition.

If the winner is a minor, this prize can only be received by his/her parents (or by the person who exercises parental authority).

The score within a monthly or weekly prediction contest only counts within this prediction contest and not for other prediction contests. It is up to the player to enter a prediction in all desired groups. The same prediction can be repeated but must be entered again. 

A user can only participate once within the same prediction contest. If a user uses a different e-mail address to create an account and participate in the same prediction contest, the user won’t have a chance anymore to win a prize. On purpose participating in the same prediction contest with different accounts can be punished severely. Tifogroup reserves the right not to give away prizes in case of reasonable doubt that a player has cheated. Also, all accounts of a player can be removed, if Tifogroup discovers that a player owns multiple accounts. 

During the European Football Championships, a participant can only win one prize with the same organizer of a prediction contest. If the player finishes in a place that would entitle him to a prize on a second occasion, the prize will be forfeited and awarded to the next player in the ranking.

If a player wins a prize at Tifogame, then he/she will receive an autoreply with the confirmation of his/her win. Within one week after the win, the player will receive another mail with more information about the practical circumstances of receiving the prize. If the player doesn’t respond, then the player will receive a reminder with a deadline. If the player doesn’t respond to that mail before the stipulated deadline, then Tifogroup reserves the right not to award the prize to that player anymore. 

F. PLAYER PROFILE

The player will find his profile on the dashboard. This profile uses an avatar chosen by the player. If the player does not use it, a default avatar will be displayed. The avatar or photo chosen by the player must not be in any way discriminatory, racist or offensive. Tifogroup reserves the right to change or modify avatars or pictures on player profiles. In addition, Tifogroup also reserves the right to remove users from the Tifogame prediction platform after repeated violations to this rule. 

On the dashboard, players can find a number of personal statistics:

  • WINS: A win is the correct prediction of one game, regardless of whether it took place in a weekly, a monthly or a quick prediction contest. 
  • ACCURACY SCORE: The accuracy score of a player indicates the percentage of correct predictions. In order to determine the accuracy score, the number of correct predictions is divided by the total number of predictions, multiplied by 100. 
  • MATCH GAMES: The number of matches predicted by a player, no matter if it took place in a classic or a quick prediction contest.
