GENERAL RULES FOR TOURNAMENTS & SWEEPSTAKES
VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. Buying Will Not Help You Win. Your chances of winning without making a purchase are the same as the chances of someone who purchases something. It is illegal to give any advantage to buyers in a sweepstakes. Suicide Jacks DOES NOT PERMIT members to wager real money and has no ability to accept deposits for online gaming. These General Rules apply to all tournaments, sweepstakes and promotions. Please see the Official Rules for each sweepstakes for more details. To the extent of any conflict between this Agreement and the Official Rules of any particular sweepstakes or promotion, the Official Rules shall control.
If you do not qualify as an “Entrant” as defined below, your entry in any tournament, sweepstakes or promotion will be discarded and you will not be permitted to participate. An “Entrant” is a individual who (i) is a natural person who is a legal resident of one of these states: New Jersey, Nevada, and Texas; (ii) is at least and has reached the age of majority in the state in which he/she resides as of the time of entering the Sweepstakes (as defined in the Sweepstakes Rules for each Sweepstakes offered by Suicide Jacks), and (iii) complies with the Method of Entry & Entry Requirements set forth in this Agreement and the Sweepstakes Rules for each Sweepstakes offered by Suicide Jacks in which the member wishes to participate. Officers, directors, shareholders, members, managers, partners, employees, agents, and representatives of Sponsor and Administrator (as defined in the Sweepstakes Rules) and their respective parent companies (if any), subsidiaries, affiliates, successors, assigns, and members of their immediate families (parents, siblings, children and spouses, regardless of where they live), and those persons living in the same household with such persons, whether related or not, are ineligible to enter. Winners will be required to sign an affidavit of eligibility, liability release and, unless prohibited by law, publicity release.
Two types of accounts are available at Suicide Jacks™, a VIP account and a Free account.
A monthly subscription fee is charged for VIP accounts. VIP accounts have membership benefits that are not available to free members, such as the Suicide Jacks™ digital online magazine, free Suicide Jacks Dry-Fit Sports T-Shirt, Suicide Jacks Custom Sticker Pack and Various Discounts through other vendors when available. The VIP subscription fee pays only for VIP membership benefits. The subscription fee does not increase the number of Tournament Tokens received by the VIP member, and does not increase the odds of winning any tournament, sweepstakes or other promotion. Suicide Jacks™ reserves the right in its sole discretion to change the subscription fee and to substitute, modify or terminate specific member benefits. More details on the subscription fee and membership benefits of a VIP account are available , and the amount of the subscription fee stated on the signup page is incorporated into this Agreement by reference.
VIP membership is not required to receive free Tournament Tokens or to participate in tournaments, sweepstakes or other promotions. Anyone wishing to participate in tournaments and sweepstakes must first register for a Sweepstakes Period by mailing one 3” x 5” index card containing the Entrant’s legal name, mailing address, legal age and email address to
Suicide Jacks Registration
P.O. Box 47934
San Antonio, Texas 78265
Upon receiving the Entrant’s request for entering a Sweepstakes Period, Suicide Jacks will email Entrant (at the email address provided by Entrant) a link and further instruction for account creation. Kentucky residents may request postage reimbursement by requesting in writing on the index card. Reimbursement will be in the form of one first-class U.S. Postal Service postage stamp. Photocopies, reproductions and/or facsimiles of the 3” x 5” card are prohibited.
Play Periods / Entry Periods
The Play Period for VIP and Free accounts is 28-31 days depending upon the calendar month containing the Play PeriodThe Play Period is broken down into (4) four segments called Entry Periods (see Official Rules for Entry Periods). Free and VIP members can enter the Play Period on any day within an Entry Period, provided they have created their account and received the daily allotment (2,500 Tournament Tokens). At which point, the Entrant can participate in any Sweepstakes JX$ Tournament listed in the Tournament Dashboard, provided the Entrant has the required amount of Tournament Tokens to enter.
For each individual Free Registration received by Suicide Jacks, the member will be able to participate in a Play Period beginning on the Monday following the date on which the Free Registration is processed, and that Play Period shall expire at midnight on the 30th day after the Monday on which that particular Play Period begins. There is a limit of one Free Registration per person, per 30-day period. For each member who sends in a Free Registration, Suicide Jacks will inform each such member of the eligibility dates for that particular Play Period by sending email to the email address the member provided to Suicide Jacks upon registration. If a new Free Registration is not received by Suicide Jacks at least three (3) days prior to the expiration of the then current Play Period, the member will be unable to participate in the immediately subsequent Play Period. It is recommended that Free Registrations be placed in the mail at least two (2) weeks prior to the expiration of the then current Play Period to allow sufficient time for receipt and processing of the Free Registration. Suicide Jacks is not responsible for late, lost, illegible, incomplete, stolen, misdirected, mutilated or postage-due Free Registrations or other mail.
The only way to participate in a tournament, sweepstakes or other promotion is through the use of the Suicide Jacks in-game virtual tokens called “Tournament Tokens.” VIP members and Free members receive an equal number (2,500) of Tournament Tokens each day at 4:00 a.m. Eastern Time, and both types of account members are equally eligible to participate in tournaments, sweepstakes and other promotions. All “buy-ins” are done with Tournament Tokens.
VIP members and Free members receive 2,500 Tournament Tokens when they open an account online. Even though Free account members receive 2,500 Tournament Tokens upon opening an account, Suicide Jacks must timely receive a Free Registration for a Play Period as set forth above in order to participate in tournaments, sweepstakes and other promotions.
If a VIP or Free account contains less than 2,500 Tournament Tokens at 4:00 A.M. Eastern Time on any given day, each such account will be replenished so that it contains 2,500 Tournament Tokens at 4:00 a.m. Eastern Time (the “Tournament Tokens Allotment”). Members whose accounts contain more than 2,500 Tournament Tokens as of 4:00 a.m. on any given day shall not receive any additional Tournament Tokens on that day.
At the expiration of each Play Period, all Tournament Tokens that have been accumulated by a VIP or Free member shall be reset to 2,500. Suicide Jacks reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify the quantity of Tournament Tokens received by VIP and Free account members, but any modification will be applied equally to both types of memberships. Tournament Tokens have no cash value and may not be redeemed for cash or any other thing of value, as their use is strictly limited to use within the Suicide Jacks platform.
Odds of Winning
NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. MAKING A PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR ABILITY TO WIN. ODDS OF WINNING DEPEND ON THE NUMBER OF ENTRIES RECEIVED. The odds of winning a Sweepstakes JX$ Tournament are the same for both VIP and Free account members who have timely delivered to Suicide Jacks a Free Registration for the relevant Sweepstakes Period and created an account on the Suicide Jacks website. Further information on sweepstakes odds can be found in the Official Rules.
