We want to be fair to all our members, the rules are here to govern that fairness, anyone deemed to be breaking the rules will be disqualified from any draws.
You must be over 18 to be a member and enter a draw.
Only D.O.B's that are registered by members will be drawn. So, there is always at least one eligible winner.
Registering your date of birth (D.O.B) and email address means that your D.O.B goes into the pool of D.O.B's from which a random D.O.B is chosen when there is a draw.
SUSPENDED RULE If the winner(s) fail to visit the site and collect then the prize pot is rolled into the next one. read why
If the same D.O.B has been entered more than once (by different members) the prize is shared between them (if the D.O.B is drawn).
The more members there are with the same D.O.B the more chance that D.O.B will be drawn. For example, if there are 10 members born on 20/01/1983, and 1 member born on 1/6/1979, 20/01/1983 is 10 times more likely to be drawn.
Members can only register once. You can only have one D.O.B and one email registered at one time. If you change your email address you can update to your new one in your profile. Anyone found breaking this rule will have their entry disabled without notice.
Once the draw has been made, those who have already registered the drawn D.O.B are elligible to 'Claim'. Registering a D.O.B after it has been drawn does not entitle you to collect for that draw.
To 'Collect' the member needs to visit the site and press the 'Claim' button before the next draw. This only appears if you are a winner.
Once a member has claimed they have secured a proportion of the prize pot. The proportion they finally get depends on how many others from the winning dob claim before the next draw.
Whenever there is a draw, those who have won and claimed for the last draw will be notified of their winnings via email.
By 'Member' we mean a real human who has registered once with a unique email and their D.O.B.
Email reminders are provided to help you remember. If they fail, or your email provider chooses to filter them into Spam/Junk folders then we are not liable for missed winnings.
Email reminders are automatically disabled after 3 months of account in-activity. You can re-enable the notifications by simple updating your profile.
In order to keep the site fair we reserve the right to query certain entries. In particular, 'catch all' based email addresses (eg. email@example.com) or non-personal addresses (eg. firstname.lastname@example.org) are likely to be queried if they are one of multiple entries from a single D.O.B. We ask that you avoid using such email addresses if you can.
We reserve the right to withold winnings if we cannot ascertain that the entry is legitimate. We may require proof of your D.O.B.
In addition to the above rules, the referral draw requires:
A display name to be completed in your profile, referrals without a display name set will not be entered into the draw
