  1. To participate in the Contest and be eligible for any of the Prizes indicated in Article 7, it is necessary that the user is registered on the BETSFY platform and has the Betsfy Advance verification service activated. Only the tips made by the user during the periods of time in which the user has an active subscription of the Betsfy Advance verification service will be counted.
  2. The requirements of the tips that will be included in the Promotion, whose results (by units) will be accounted for the ranking, are:
    1. Verified odd tips made in the same calendar month, on matches or sport events that end in the same calendar month.
    2. Tips eliminated after 15 minutes of their publication will be counted for the ranking, whether positive or negative, as well as those verified live bets, even if the aforementioned 15 minutes have not elapsed.
    3. Simple or accumulator tips will be accounted for by full compliance. Different applications of the accumulator will not be counted separately.

    Simple bets can only be: won, lost or void. In cases where the result may be different, the following will be considered:

    • In case a tip is half won/half void, the bet will be considered void.
    • In case a tip is half lost/half void, the bet will be considered lost.

    Accumulator tips can only be: won, lost or void. In cases where the result may be different, the following will be considered:

    • In case one or more of the accumulator tips prove to be void or half won/half void and the rest are correct, the accumulator tip will be considered void.
    • In the event that one or more of the accumulator tips are half lost/half void and the rest are correct, the accumulator tip will be considered lost.

    In no case duplicate tips will be accepted, that is, the same forecast (tip) can not be repeated, nor system bets will be accepted.

    Only those betting tips, whose event has been completed, will be considered won or lost. If the event of a tip is canceled, suspended or withdrawn, it will be considered void, except if that event takes place within the same current month or ranking phase. Those tips about events that are definitively canceled will be considered void.

    For purposes of the tips limit, events not completed for whatever reason will be counted for the consideration of the maximum number of 120 allowed tips. On the contrary, they will not be counted for the minimum of 15 tips.

  3. Minimum and maximum number of betting tips:
    1. Minimum number of tips: it will be necessary to make a minimum of 15 tips within the same calendar month to enter the contest ranking, although from the first tip, the user may be included in the monthly ranking.
    2. Maximum number of tips: the obtained units will be counted in a maximum of 120 tips within the same calendar month. For calculating units, the first 120 tips that have been made by each user will always be taken into account. Those that are made later will not be counted.
  4. Ranking system:
    1. Tipsters of the same country will compete among themselves, making tips according to the Article 8, section 2. Two competition systems are established depending on the participating countries and their number of users, so that those who will celebrate the semifinal at the Betsfy House in Tenerife will have a ranking system, and those who participate online will have their particular ranking system.
      1. Countries with in-person semifinals: Spain, Italy, UK and Germany.A monthly competition will be established during the months of February, March and April 2019. In each of these months, a ranking will be established which, according to the number of units, will determine who will be the first six to win a place to enter the semifinal in Tenerife. In the same way, it will happen in each of the four mentioned countries. For the elaboration of the ranking that will determine the six (6) first to win a place, the results published on the Betsfy app (which will be verified by our team) will be taken into account.

        A total of 24 will be qualified by month and country (6 each country) and will access the monthly in-person semifinal that will take place in Tenerife. Among them, four (4) finalists will be selected, one from each country and month, since the six qualifiers from each country will compete among them, not with the representatives from the rest of the countries.

      2. Countries with online semifinal: Ireland, Sweden, Belgium, Portugal, Brazil, Mexico and Chile.As in the previous case, a monthly competition is established during the months of February, March and April 2019. From the results obtained in each of the aforementioned months and in each of the aforementioned countries, six (6) participants will be qualified from each country, to compete in an online semifinal, from which there will be one winner (per country and month). Among these, those three that obtain the best ranking, taking into account the ranking made according to the number of obtained units, will be the three (3) finalists (one for each month) of this set of countries that will be qualified for the Grand Finale.
    2. First Semifinal (February):1st Betsfy House: the first phase qualifiers of the countries: Spain, Italy, UK and Germany (six per country), will compete in the semifinal that will be held at the Betsfy House during the 29th, 30th and 31st of March 2019.

      Online: on the same dates the online competition will be held, in the established form, for the rest of the participating countries, resulting in one winner per country.

    3. Second Semifinal (March):2nd Betsfy House: the qualifiers of the first phase of the countries: Spain, Italy, UK and Germany (six per country), will compete in the semifinal that will be held at the Betsfy House on the 26th, 27th and 28th of April 2019.

      Online: on the same dates the online competition will be held, in the established form, for the rest of the participating countries, resulting in one winner per country.

    4. Third Semifinal (April):3rd Betsfy House: the first phase qualifiers of the countries: Spain, Italy, UK and Germany (six per country), will compete in the semifinal that will be held at the Betsfy House on the 17th, 18th and 19th of May 2019.

      Online: on the same dates the online competition will be held, in the established form, for the rest of the participating countries, resulting in one winner per country.

    5. The Grand Finale or The Finals:the fifteen (15) qualifiers of the semifinals will be the finalists of the contest. They will compete for the Betsfy World Cup in „The Finals“ event. It will be held in Las Vegas (USA), as long as all finalists obtain the previous mandatory permissions to be able to travel to that country as tourists.

      If any of the qualifiers for the Grand Finale does not obtain the mandatory permission to travel to Las Vegas (USA), that person will be replaced by the one that would have obtained the next best result and that completes and obtains the mandatory legal requirement to travel to that country.

      The competition will be decided by live and pre live betting format on the 31st of May, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of June 2019. It will face all the ranked participants of the different countries. From this final there will be a single winner who will become the winner of the „Betsfy World Cup 2019“.

  5. Tips and scores to take into account during the development of the Contest.The ranking that will be established to know the winners, and that will count the valid tips of the participants in the promotion, will be monthly, so that the following periods of time will be taken into account for each of the following semifinals:
    • For the first semifinal (to celebrate the 29th, 30th and 31st of March 2019): tips made between the 1st of February and the 28th of February 2019, both inclusive, will be taken into account.
    • For the second semifinal (to celebrate the 26th, 27th and 28th of April 2019): tips made between the 1st of March and the 31st of March 2019, both inclusive, will be taken into account.
    • For the third semifinal (to celebrate the 17th, 18th and 19th of May 2019): tips made between the 1st of April and the 30th April 2019, both inclusive, will be taken into account.

    The score of the participants will be calculated according to the profit units won or lost in the different tips. This ranking will be updated as the units (both negative and positive) of each of the participants are counted.

    The calculation of the units will be done by the same system of calculation of the Betsfy Advance system. For the final calculation of the result of each participant, the rounding of the units will be done taking into account the first two digits that exceed a complete unit, in the same way that it is used with the cents of euro.

    The application system for calculating units will be the following:

    If the tip is correct, the following rule is applied:
    Profit = (stake x odd)-stake

    If, on the other hand, the tip is wrong, the following rule is applied:
    Loss = stake“

    In the unlikely event that there is a tie in some of the phases, the tiebreaker will be done as established in the following way:

    • The tiebreaker will only be produced for each of the three (3) first places (first, second or third), successively. If there is a tie between three users for the first place, the second and third places will no longer break the tie, since there would already be three (3) ranked participants. And in the same way it would happen if the tie is for the second and third positions, which would only take effect as long as the number of three (3) winners had not been previously reached.
    • Online competition: The tiebreaker will be held, among the participants who obtain the same result, on specific tips of certain sports events that the Organiser will determine, within a maximum period of seven (7) calendar days from the end of the phase in which the tie has occurred. It will be communicated beforehand to each of the users who had tied in one of the positions.
    • First Semifinal and „The Finals“: The tie will be broken among the participants who obtain the same result, on specific tips of certain sports events, which the Organiser will determine in the same act trying to reach consensus among the participants. If it is not reached, the Organiser will decide on two different sports modalities (preferably, football and basketball), once the results have been verified among all the attendees/participants.

Notwithstanding the provisions of this Article, the Organiser reserves the right to cancel and suspend those results and/or participants that it considers to be making improper or fraudulent use of the tools and services that the platform enables to the participation in this Contest, as indicated in Article 10 of these Terms.

ARTICLE 9-. Semifinals at the Betsfy House and Final in Las Vegas

For those participants who are in countries that qualify for an in-person semifinal: the monthly semifinalists will be communicated telematically the posibility to go to a face-to-face semifinal that will be held at the Betsfy House, located in Adeje, Tenerife. Transportation, accommodation and meals will be provided, as well as leisure and fun activities during its celebration. In addition to enjoying a unique weekend, with all-inclusive expenses, they will compete through the live betting format to choose the winner.

If any of the qualifiers can not go to the Betsfy House on the scheduled dates for the event celebration: you must communicate it at least fifteen (15) calendar days in advance (and you can participate online from the Betsfy app in the same dates).

All the finalists will be communicated, telematically, the celebration of The Final of the contest in Las Vegas (USA), for which also, transportation, accommodation and meals will be provided; being in this case compulsory to attend in person to win the contest.

In the event that one of the semifinalists does not communicate that he can not attend the Semifinal at the Betsfy House, or if he communicates it out of the term of fifteen calendar days explained in this Article, it will be considered that he renounces his position for the Semifinal for all purposes. His tips and his ranking in the Contest will not be taken into account, from which he will be automatically unsubscribed. However, the possibility of admitting this finalist to the Semifinal, if he alleges a legitimate cause and the Organiser considers it appropriate to hold the Contest properly, will be discretionary valued by the Organiser.

To attend both the Semifinal and the Final, the qualifiers must have the necessary documentation, in force, in order to travel (by plane) to the town where they will take place. In the case of The Final in Las Vegas (USA), they must process both the visa and any other permission that may be required in order to travel.

In relation to the planned trips of the participants, the Organiser reserves the right to choose both the means of transport and the company or travel agency, as well as the itinerary that is most convenient, who must accept it or, on the contrary, assume a different one at their expense. In the same way, it will happen to those who could lose a flight or when changing to any of the provided means of transport. In terms of accommodation, participants agree to be located in those hotels that have managed the Organisation, always maintaining normal behavior. If the Organisation receives any complaint from an accomodation due to the inappropriate behavior of the invited participant, he may be excluded from the contest, without further formalities. Likewise, if any participant does not obtain the permissions required by the authorities of their country of origin or of the country of destination to hold any of the events, they will be excluded from the contest and will be obliged to reimburse any expense that has been charged to the Organiser.

Clarifications and modifications of the terms and conditions of the Betsfy World Cup

From the legal department of Betmedia Advance, S.L.U. we informed that, in relation to the Terms and Conditions published in the Betsfy World Cup app, and in application of the provisions of Article 19 about „Modifications“, it is necessary to make the following precisions, clarifications and modifications:

  1. In ARTICLE 8, „Contest Rules“, section 5, it is stated that: “ For the third semifinal (to celebrate the 17th, 18th and 19th of May 2019)“. Now, for organisational reasons, it is necessary to modify that dates and, consequently, the previous sentence has to be changed to the following: „For the third semifinal (to celebrate the 10th, 11th and 12th of May 2019)“.
  2. In ARTICLE 8, „Contest Rules“, section 4.d), it is stated that: „The competition will be decided by live and pre live betting format on the 31st of May, 1st, 2nd and 3rd of June 2019“. Actually, it should be noted that, for reasons of organisation and coordination, this sentence has to be changed to the following: „The competition will be decided by live and pre-live betting format on the 31st of May, 1st and 2nd of June 2019“.

Additionally, it is necessary to specify that, in ARTICLE 8, „Contest Rules“, section 4.1, it is stated that: „In each of these months, a ranking will be established which, according to the number of units, will determine who will be the first six to win a place to enter the semifinal in Tenerife.“ Since in some of the countries listed in that section the minimum number of required semifinalists has not been reached, because they do not meet the requirements, those who qualify in those nations will go on to dispute the semifinal in the online group. And, in the same way, this solution will be adopted for the count of those possible qualifiers from those countries for the Grand Finale of Las Vegas.

Finally, it is necessary to remember the provisions of sections 2.B and 3.B of ARTICLE 8 of the Terms and Conditions of the Contest, that literally say: „The requirements of the tips that will be included in the Promotion, whose results (by units) will be counted for the ranking, are: b) Tips eliminated after 15 minutes of their publication will be counted for the ranking, whether positive or negative, as well as those verified live bets, even if the aforementioned 15 minutes have not elapsed.“ On the other hand, „b) Maximum number of tips: the units obtained in a maximum of 120 tips within the same calendar month will be counted. For the purpose of calculating units, the first 120 tips made by each user will always be taken into account. Those made later will not be counted. So that, in each of the respective monthly periods, the first 120 tips made by each user will be counted, even if they have been deleted once 15 minutes have elapsed since their publication, whether positive or negative, as well as those that have been uploaded in live and have been verified.

All clarifications and modifications will have the same publicity as the Terms and Conditions, by updating it on the website of the BETSFY platform (www.betsfy.com) and in its app.
