We (i) make certain tools available on the Site so that Users can complete and submit online orders in connection with the Raffle Draws (“Orders”); (ii) display the results of Raffle Draws on the Site; (iii) if applicable, collect the winnings from the Raffle Partners and deliver the dispatch Prize (defined below) of an eligible User; and/or (iv) if applicable, facilitate the hand-delivery of a Winning Raffle Prize (defined below) to eligible Users (collectively, the “Raffle Prize”).
    1. In order to participate in the Raffle Prize Service you must (i) have registered a valid, and maintain an active, Account; and (ii) comply with these Terms. A user satisfying these terms and lawfully purchasing a Raffle Ticket through our online Services accordingly shall be the owner of the winning Raffle Prize drawn at the end of the Draw.

    1. The Site enables Players to purchase Shares in a possible future Prize derived from a set of Raffle Tickets (“Syndicate Play” or “Syndicate Play Service”). The Syndicate Play Service does not enable you to choose the members of a Syndicate.
    1. Syndicate Play offers you the opportunity to purchase one or more equal portions of ownership in a Syndicate (“Shares”), to the extent such Shares are available.

We determine:

(i) the total number of Shares available for purchase in a Syndicate (“Total Shares”);

(ii) the number of Raffle Tickets purchased by the Syndicate; and

The Site will display the Total Shares, the Lines played, and the remaining Shares available for purchase in the Syndicate prior to your purchase of any Shares.

    1. By purchasing a Share, you will not own any specific Raffle Ticket or Line purchased by the Syndicate, which will instead be owned by us as manager of the Syndicate. The portion due to you of any Prize resulting from Winning Raffle Tickets purchased on behalf of a Syndicate (“Syndicate Prize”) will correspond to the percentage of Shares you have purchased of the Total Shares in that Syndicate. Any Shares not purchased by Site users shall be owned by us.
    1. Syndicate Play may not be available in combination with other services or features offered on the Site, including but not limited to our Subscription Service.
    1. The Order Price (i) is the amount displayed on the Site at the time you submit the Order or an order to purchase a Share; (ii) includes our service fee and therefore may be higher than the participation price you would pay if you submitted an equivalent Raffle form to or purchased an equivalent syndicate share directly from the Raffle Operator; (iii) is subject to change from time to time, as displayed on the Site; and (iv) is subject to the quantity of lines and numbers in the Order that you choose to submit you and the number of Raffle games you choose to participate in or to the number of Shares in the Syndicate Order you choose to submit.
    1. In the unlikely event that there is a delay (for example, due to technical issues in the processing of a transaction) between your submission of an Order and payment of the Order Price and our receipt of payment, then the status of the transaction will be pending until such time as we receive the Order Price.
    1. We stop to accept the submission of Orders a certain number of hours prior to the performance of the related Raffle Draw by its Raffle Operator (“Cut-Off Time”). We display on the site the amount of time that is remaining until the Cut-Off Time for each Raffle Draw on the Site. We retain the right in our sole discretion to determine the length of the Cut-Off Time. Please be aware that once the Cut-Off Time for a particular Raffle Draw has expired, you will no longer be able to submit an Order for it.

    1. Following each Raffle Draw, the Raffle Operator publishes the related final and conclusive winning numbers (“Winning Numbers”). To the extent that a Raffle Ticket includes Winning Numbers you may be entitled to a cash prize to be paid by the Raffle Operator (“Prizes”). The number of Winning Numbers that you need to obtain to be entitled to Winnings in connection with a Raffle Draw, as well as the amount of a Prize, is determined solely by the Raffle Operator. We use commercially reasonable efforts to publish the official Raffle Draw results, including the Winning Numbers and Prizes, on the Site as soon as possible following official publication thereof by the related Raffle Operator. If your Raffle Ticket is a winning ticket (“Winning Raffle Ticket”) then we will send an email to your designated email account and (if you have chosen to participate in our Alert Service) an SMS to your designated mobile phone number, notifying you that the Raffle Ticket is a Winning Raffle Ticket.
