Winners are determined by the objective scoring criteria described in the Contest Rules and any other applicable documentation associated with the Contest. From all entries received for each Contest, winners are determined by the individuals who use their skill and knowledge of relevant golf information and fantasy golf rules to accumulate the best score according to the corresponding scoring rules. The Website and Contests may not be used for any form of illicit gambling.
15b. CONTEST STATISTICS AND LIVE SCORING
To the extent that we offer 'live' statistics during gameplay, all 'live' statistics and other information provided through the StrokeWars Website and related information sources are unofficial. Live sports statistics and their respective components are offered for informational and/or entertainment purposes only and are not used to determine the final results of our Contests. While StrokeWars uses reasonable efforts to include accurate and up-to-date information, StrokeWars does not warrant or make any representations of any kind with respect to the information provided through the StrokeWars Website. StrokeWars shall not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, usefulness, or availability of any information transmitted or made available via the StrokeWars Website and related information sources, and shall not be responsible or liable for any error or omissions in that information.
15c. CONTEST RESULTS
Contest results and prize calculations are based on the final statistics and scoring results at the completion of the last professional sports game of each individual Contest. Once Contest results are reviewed and graded, prizes are awarded. The scoring results of a Contest will not be changed regardless of any official statistics or scoring adjustments made by the leagues at later times or dates, except in StrokeWars' sole discretion.
StrokeWars reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to deny any member the ability to participate in contests for any reason whatsoever. Further, StrokeWars may, in its sole and absolute discretion, invalidate any contest result for the purposes of preventing abusive and/or any unfair or potentially unlawful activity, or in the event that there is a risk of any such abusive, illegal, or unfair activity.
At the conclusion of each Contest, prizes will be awarded by 12:00 NOON EST on the following day except in circumstances where technical failure, inability of the Company to verify your compliance with these Terms, or other reasons prevent such timely payout. Prizes won are added to the winning participants credit balance. Ties are subject to the Rules of the particular Contest that applies.
15e. PAYMENT AND WITHDRAWAL OF PRIZES
Winners are posted on the Stroke Wars Website.
Before making any payment, StrokeWars may require that an entrant complete and execute an affidavit of eligibility in which, among other things, the entrant is required to represent and warrant that the entrant is eligible to participate in a Contest, is otherwise in compliance with this Agreement and, potentially, is required to provide documentation or proof of eligibility and compliance. If StrokeWars requests that an entrant completes and executes such an affidavit and the entrant fails to do so within seven (7) days, or StrokeWars otherwise determines that the entrant does not meet the eligibility requirements or is not in compliance with these Terms, StrokeWars reserves the right to terminate the entrant’s account and withhold or revoke the awarding of any prizes associated with such account. In such a situation, StrokeWars may pay out any withheld or revoked prizes to the other entrants in the relevant contest in a manner consistent with the Rules of the Contest.
All withdrawal requests are paid by CHECK or PAYPAL within 14 business days. Checks are sent via U.S. Mail. Proof of Paypal account ownership is required prior to PAYPAL withdrawals. Promotional deposits, credits, and other bonuses may not be withdrawn from a StrokeWars account unless appropriate terms of the promotion are achieved first by the user. In order to receive withdrawals via Paypal, the entrant's registered StrokeWars email address must match their Paypal email address.
All taxes associated with the receipt of any prize are the sole responsibility of the winner. In the event that the awarding of any prizes to winners of Contests is challenged by any legal authority, StrokeWars reserves the right in its sole discretion to determine whether or not to award such prizes.
No substitution or transfer of prize is permitted, except that StrokeWars reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal value or greater if the advertised prize is unavailable. All prizes are awarded "as is" and without warranty of any kind, express or implied (including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability for a particular purpose).
StrokeWars will take appropriate steps to prevent unauthorized withdrawals from member accounts. All members are subject to an automated Knowledge Base Authentication ("KBA") verification process provided whenever attempting to withdraw funds. This process asks a series of at least four multiple choice questions about the person’s life, such as known relatives, previous addresses, and to enter their last 4 digits of their Tax ID or Social Security Number. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of a member, FantasyMania, LLC can and does require its members to produce a copy of their driver’s license, credit cards, utility bills or passport for identity verification. If a member cannot validate their identity and account, FantasyMania, LLC will not release the funds from the account.
Players who believe that funds held by or their accounts with StrokeWars have been misallocated, compromised or otherwise mishandled, may register a complaint with FantasyMania, LLC online by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. StrokeWars shall use its best efforts to respond to such complaints within ten (10) days. If StrokeWars determines that the relief requested in the complaint will not be granted, its response will set forth the specific reasons therefore. If more information is required for StrokeWars to process the complaint, the response will note the form and nature of the necessary additional information needed.
Declaration and payment of all income taxes associated with contest winnings are the sole responsibility of the contest winner, and failure to pay applicable tax liabilities may result in civil penalties or criminal liability. StrokeWars collects tax forms from customers in order to comply with informational tax reporting requirements. StrokeWars issues form 1099-MISC to customers with reportable income of at least $600 in any calendar year.
All deposits on your account must be made from sources in your name only. Users may not share payment methods between StrokeWars accounts. Deposits made on our site will appear on your paypal or credit/debit card statement as *STROKE WARS.
15i. Signup Bonuses, Coupons & Coupon Terms

Any StrokeWars member that receives a signup bonus or uses a coupon code towards a deposit must enter the total equivalent value in contests to the total deposit or signup bonus including the bonus amount received upon signup or usage of the coupon before withdrawing from their account.
