The Sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the contiguous United States and the District of Columbia (excluding residents of Rhode Island and Maine) (the “Eligibility Area”) and who comply with these Official Rules in all respects. Participation in the Sweepstakes is limited to individuals eighteen (18) years or older (19 years or older in AL and NE, 21 years or older in MS) and minors thirteen (13) years or older (a “Minor”) with parental consent documented in a completed  OGN Supermatch Alpha Online Giveaway Sweepstakes Parental/Guardian Consent Form (“Consent Form”). Minors who do not submit a completed Consent Form are ineligible to win. Employees, officers, and directors of Sponsor or Sponsor’s parents, subsidiaries, and affiliates, and the immediate family members of such individuals (spouse, parents, siblings, children, legal guardians, in-laws, grandparents, and grandchildren) and members of the same households (whether legally related or not) of such individuals, are not eligible to enter or win. By entering the Sweepstakes, you (an “Entrant”) or your parent/legal guardian, if applicable, accept and agree to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, including the interpretation of these Official Rules, which shall be final and binding in all respects.


These Official Rules include limitations of your rights and remedies. The Sweepstakes is void outside the Eligibility Area and wherever prohibited by law or where the registration or filing requirements of any state or local jurisdiction have not been complied with.


HOW TO ENTER: You may enter this Sweepstakes through the means listed below:


Complete and submit the online entry form on GLEAM (https://gleam.io/eqYkp/ogn-supermatch-alpha-online-giveaway); and


when completing the entry form, each participant will be given the opportunity to receive additional entries, for following OGN Esports on social media (including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Twitch). SOCIAL MEDIA FOLLOWS AND INTERACTIONS WITH OGN ESPORTS SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS ARE NOT NECESSARY TO WIN.


This call-to-action is subject to change at Sponsor’s sole discretion. The Sweepstakes is in no way sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or associated with Playstation, Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Twitch, etc. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitch are registered trademarks, which is herein used for purposes of description only. Such use is not intended to suggest or imply the sponsorship, endorsement, or the approval of this Sweepstakes by the owners of said trademarks.




Sponsor’s database clock will be the official timekeeper for this Sweepstakes. ENTRIES ARE LIMITED TO ONE (1) ENTRY PER PERSON AND THEIR CORRESPONDING VALID SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNT AND ASSOCIATED/LINKED E-MAIL ADDRESS. Subsequent attempts made by the same individual to submit multiple entries by using multiple social media accounts or e-mail addresses, or otherwise, may be disqualified. Entries are void if they contain typographical, printing or other errors. No entries from automatically generated social media accounts or e-mail addresses shall be accepted. Use of any automated system, such as script, macro, or other automated means, to participate or generate entries (or otherwise assist in participation) or create multiple social media accounts is strictly prohibited and will result in disqualification. Entries that are mutilated, altered, lost, late, inaccurate, incomplete, tampered with, unintelligible, illegible, forged, or otherwise not in compliance with these Official Rules will also result in disqualification. Any false or deceptive entries or acts will render all entries by an Entrant ineligible.


As a condition of entering the Sweepstakes, each Entrant (or if Entrant is a Minor, said Entrant’s parent or legal guardian) gives consent for Sponsor to obtain and deliver his or her name, address and other information to third parties for the purpose of administering this Sweepstakes and complying with applicable laws, regulations and rules. In the event of a dispute over the identity of an Entrant, entry will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the social media account or e-mail address, which the Entrant will have the obligation to establish/verify. The “authorized account holder” is defined as the person assigned to a social media account by a social media platform, or an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider and/or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses. All materials submitted become the exclusive property of Sponsor and will not be returned. In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. Illegible and/or incomplete entries and entries submitted by Entrants who do not meet the eligibility requirements (including all requirements with respect to age and residence) are void.


Sponsor and any and all Internet server(s) and access provider(s), and each of their respective affiliates, subsidiaries, parent corporations, retailers and advertising and promotion agencies, and all of their officers, directors, shareholders, employees and agents are not responsible for: any incorrect or inaccurate entry information; human errors; technical malfunctions; failures, omissions, interruptions, deletions or defects of any telephone or mobile network, computer and mobile online systems, equipment, servers, providers, or software, including without limitation any injury or damage to participant’s or any other person’s computer or mobile devices relating to or resulting from participation in the Sweepstakes; data that is processed late or incorrectly or is incomplete or lost due to telephone, computer, mobile device, or electronic malfunction or traffic congestion on telephone lines or the Internet or any website or for any other reason whatsoever; typographical, printing or other errors; any entries which are late, lost, incomplete, misdirected, stolen, mutilated, illegible, or postage due, or any combination thereof.

It is Entrant’s responsibility to timely check Entrant’s e-mail or direct messages for the winner announcement. Sponsor shall not responsible for any failure of delivery of notice if Entrant provides an incorrect e-mail address, or if Sponsor cannot reach Entrant via direct message. ODDS OF WINNING DEPEND ON THE NUMBER OF ENTRIES RECEIVED.


PRIZES: The Winners will receive one (1) of the following prizes, decided at random: (1) Playstation 4 Console, Xbox One X Gaming Console, HyperX “Love” Box. Approximate Retail Value (ARV) OF EACH PRIZE: $299.99-$399.99. The ARV of the Prizes is based on information available to Sponsor as of December 8, 2018. Sponsor will provide shipping costs for the Prizes to the Winners. Sponsor shall not be responsible or liable for any additional costs, such as return shipping, incurred by the Winner. Prize details not specified herein will be determined by Sponsor in Sponsor’s sole discretion.


Sponsor is not responsible for, and the Winners will not receive, the difference (if any) between the actual value of the Prize at the time of award and the stated ARV in these Official Rules. The Prize has no monetary value and is not transferable, assignable, or redeemable for cash. Except as otherwise specified herein, no substitution for a Prize by the Winners will be allowed. Prize may not be sold, bartered, or exchanged by the Winners.


Any applicable taxes, fees, or other costs and expenses associated with a Prize not specified herein as being provided are the Winners’ sole responsibility.


Upon Sponsor’s request, the Winner (or the Winner’s parent or legal guardian if the Winner is a Minor) shall provide tax information, such as a valid social security number, before a Prize is released, regardless of whether the Prize, in whole or in part, is used. An IRS Form 1099 (Miscellaneous Income) may be issued in the name of the Winner (or Winner’s parent/legal guardian), for the actual value of the Prize received. Entrants waive the right to assert as a cost of winning any Prize any and all costs of verification and redemption or travel to claim a Prize and any liability or publicity that might arise from claiming or seeking to claim a Prize.


WINNER NOTIFICATION; PRIZE CLAIM: The Winners will be announced on www.ognesports.com and from @OGNESPORTS on Twitter or Instagram, and the Winners will be notified by e-mail (via the e-mail address provided by the Entrant) or by direct message on social media (via Entrant’s account of entry) on or about December 8, 2018. After notification of winning, potential Winners (and his/her parent or legal guardian if the potential Winner is a Minor) shall be required to complete, sign, and return a Prize Winner Affidavit and Release of Liability, a completed IRS W-9 form, and, except where prohibited, a Publicity Release Form within twenty-four (24) hours of issuance. All documents required as set forth above may be referred to herein as “Required Documents.” The Required Documents may request information of the Winners, including full name, home phone number, e-mail address, and date of birth. If the Entrant is a Minor, and a Consent Form has not yet been received, the parent/legal guardian(s) of the Entrant must indicate his/her consent to his/her Minor’s entry and participation in the Sweepstakes. A Minor Entrant without a valid Consent Form is not eligible to win the Sweepstakes.


A potential Winner’s failure to respond to the notification, failure to return all Required Documents by December 12, 2018, or failure to be in compliance with these Official Rules in any way, may result in the potential Winner being disqualified, and an alternate Winner may be selected at Sponsor’s sole discretion.


Awarding of the Prize is subject to the Winner’s acceptance of, and compliance with, these Official Rules. Non-compliance may result in disqualification and award of the Prize to an alternate Winner. If any potential Winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the Prize for any reason prior to award, such potential Winner may be disqualified and an alternate potential Winner may be selected. If requested by Sponsor, Entrant must show photo identification for Sponsor to verify that the eligibility requirements are met. If any Prize notification or Prize is returned for any reason, or if Winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor may decide, in its sole discretion, to award such applicable Prize to an alternate eligible Entrant or, if time does not permit (in Sponsor’s opinion), to not award such Prize.


ODDS: Odds of winning the Prize depend upon the total number of eligible entries received and the timing of the entries submitted.


DISQUALIFICATION: Sponsor may disqualify an Entrant (and cause the Prize that has been awarded (if any) to be forfeited) due to any of the following: (a) the Entrant fails to comply with any of the terms, conditions, restrictions, or limitations of these Official Rules (as determined by Sponsor in Sponsor’s sole discretion); (b) the Entrant fails to respond to the winner notification or any other notice within twenty-four (24) hours after its transmission; (c) the Entrant fails to complete, sign, and return the Required Documents within twenty-four (24) hours after its receipt; (d) the inability of Sponsor to contact a potential Winner or the return of any winner notification, notice, or Prize as undeliverable; or (e) an Entrant’s failure to maintain his/her behavior in accordance with all applicable laws and generally-accepted social practices in connection with participation in any Sweepstakes-related or Prize-related activity, including, without limitation, if the Entrant (i) is uncooperative or disruptive; (ii) annoys, threatens, or harasses any other person; (iii) uses profanity; (iv) demonstrates any lewd, sexually suggestive, or otherwise obscene gestures; (v) attempts or does cause serious harm or damage to person, property, or the reputation of Sponsor or any other Entrant; or (vi) performs an act defined by federal, state, or local statute or ordinance as constituting a criminal act.

In the event this Sweepstakes is cancelled, the Sponsor may choose to, but is not obligated to, award the Prizes to Entrants from among all eligible, non-suspect entries received prior to the time of the action or event warranting such cancellation.
