All prizes for featured tournaments are given out as bonus money for play on Rivalspot.com. This bonus money may be withdrawn after the player has wagered at least 50% of the prize amount in other challenges or tournaments on Rivalspot.com. For instance, on a $30 win, you must wager at least $15 on Rivalspot.com before you can withdraw the cash.
In the case that there is a no show during a match, the win is defaulted to the player who is present.
If there is a player who gets disconnected during a match, the players must be given a rematch.
If there is a dispute during a match and no proof of foul play, the players must be given a rematch.
If there is a dispute during a match and the player has proof that his opponent cheated, the offending player may be banned and the match should be given to the other player by default.
Players should record their matches if they don't know or don't trust their opponent. It will help support your claim in case there was cheating.
Players should always be respectful in the chat, a certain amount of trash talk is expected & acceptable, but racial slurs and threats will not be tolerated. Users will be issued a warning for all such cases. Repeat offenders will be banned from the site.
Any spamming or linking to competitors websites is strictly prohibited. Users will be issued a warning for all such cases, but any subsequent violations and player will be instantly banned from the site.
In order to take part in one of Rivalspot’s tournaments, you must agree to the following (don’t worry, we’ll make this as easy to follow as legally possible): The Website shall act as trustee in connection with the prize money relating thereto. Tournament rules and entry fees shall be posted on the Website. A user cannot withdraw from a tournament once he has joined that tournament. In the event a user fails to participate in a tournament (a no-show), said user shall forfeit the game, the entry fee and the service fee. So, once you join these multi-player tournaments, you can’t bail out. Otherwise, you forfeit the game, your entry fee, and your service fee (not to mention your rep.)
The prize money in connection with a tournament shall be posted on the Website prior to the commencement of said tournament. The prize money shall consist of the aggregate (as in collection) of all entry fees received up to the time of commencement minus a service fee. We do not provide any odds of success, as such odds are dependent on (i) the number of users participating therein and (ii) the skill level of such users. Rivalspot shall not in any way be liable for any lost or potential winnings resulting from any reason whatsoever.
Upon the entry into a tournament, you irrevocably authorize Rivalspot to deduct 15% of the wager/entry fee as a service fee from the applicable account(s).If sufficient funds are not available, then you may not take part in the tournament. Or, as they say, you wanna play, you gotta pay – the 15% service fee, that is.
Rivalspot’s proprietary technology enables it to receive all results of each tournament directly from a user’s agreed public domain page. Rivalspot independently verifies all results and displays the results on the site. All results posted by Rivalspot shall be final.
Users shall not contravene the rules (that means “break the rules,” in case you didn’t know) set forth and agreed upon in connection with a tournament. Any such contravention shall constitute cheating. Users are encouraged to immediately report any case of cheating, along with evidence of any such violation. Rivalspot considers various types/forms of evidence when investigating a case of cheating. We take this very seriously, so we can’t say this enough: if you think you’re the victim of cheating, please immediately report it to us – don’t worry, we won’t brand you as a “tattle-tale.”
And don’t forget – and this is an important one – you have exactly 1 (one) hour to play your round, and not one second more! Sorry, guys, that one’s not negotiable. If you’re a no-show, or don’t make it to the tournament for any reason, and Rivalspot doesn’t get the results until HH:55 (that’s 55 minutes after the hour), then you are disqualified. And remember guys, each round starts at the top of the hour (HH:00) sharp.
