No purchase or payment is necessary to participate in the Contest. Enter the Contest by completing each of the following steps:
Download or open the App downloaded through the Apple App Store or Google Play Store on your mobile device, and either (a) if you already have a Yahoo account, log into your existing Yahoo account, or (b) if you do not already have a Yahoo account, sign up for a Yahoo account. Message and data rates may apply to use of mobile device for entry.

You will be able to join a Contest if a Contest is open. You will have until the Contest lock time (displayed on the Contest home screen) to submit an answer for each question. You must answer all of the questions in the Contest in order for your entry to be valid and eligible to win a Prize.
A valid Yahoo account is required to participate in the Contest. If you do not have a Yahoo account, you will be prompted to sign up for one before being permitted to enter or participate in a Contest. Please ensure that your contact information is accurate, up-to-date, and complete. This information is mandatory if you wish to be eligible to win and collect prizes. A user who has not provided valid registration information will automatically be deemed ineligible and will not be considered for a prize. A valid PayPal account is also required to collect a prize. A PayPal account may only be associated with a single Yahoo account.
Please note that the Contests may only be played under the Yahoo account with which they were created or entered, and may not be transferred to another Yahoo account or played by another person. Also, you may not share an account with another person or allow another user to play under your Yahoo account. Likewise, you may not enter a Contest on behalf of someone without a Yahoo account, or that is ineligible to participate in the Contest. As a rule, each Contest entrant is allowed to play under one Yahoo account. It is at Sponsor’s sole discretion and judgment to determine whether multiple Yahoo accounts belong to the same entrant. If you are found to be participating in the Contests using more than one Yahoo account, such penalties may include, but are not limited to, disqualification from current and future Contests and forfeiture of any past, current, or future winnings. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the holder of the Yahoo ID associated with a particular entry, the dispute will be resolved in favor of the individual who is the authorized holder of the Yahoo ID and password associated with the account (based upon information submitted at the time the account was created or updated upon registration for this Contest), and, if available, the "authorized email account holder" of the "alternate email address" provided when the Yahoo ID was created. "Authorized email account holder" is defined as the natural person assigned an email address by an internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization (i.e., business, educational institution) responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. If there is a discrepancy between the name of the person listed as the authorized holder of the Yahoo ID, and the authorized email account holder of the alternate email address provided when the Yahoo ID was created, that Yahoo ID will be disqualified and any potential prize will be forfeited. A potential Prize winner may be required to provide Contest Entities with proof that he/she is the authorized account holder for each of the credentials described above.
The winner of each Contest match will receive a cash prize, determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion (the "Prize"). The amount of the Prize shall be established and made known to Contest entrants in advance of each Contest and shall be listed on the Contest page in the App. In the case of multiple winners (as explained below), such players will split the Prize evenly. The total of all accrued Prizes you have won may be viewed through the App. To receive payment of your accrued Prizes, you must cash-out Prizes via PayPal, a third party service. Prize fulfillment will be subject to the terms, conditions, and privacy policies of PayPal, located at https://www.paypal.com . In certain instances involving larger Prizes, you will be contacted directly by Sponsor or a Contest Entity, who will arrange prize fulfillment at their sole discretion in accordance with these Official Rules and the Terms.
Sponsor uses your account information to contact and verify winners. Out of date or incorrect account information at the time you enter a Contest may disqualify you from receiving a Prize. Failure to provide valid, working contact information in connection with your account may result in termination of that Yahoo account and forfeiture of any Prizes awarded.
Decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding with respect to all matters related to the Contest. In no event shall the Sponsor be obligated to award any Prizes other than the Prize specified in these Official Rules. The Sponsor does not guarantee that the Prize can be made available to the winner. The Prize is not assignable and not transferable and no substitutions are permitted. In addition, if the Prize is unable to be fulfilled to the winner due to any applicable law, rule or regulation, or if the winner cannot claim the Prize for any reason, then Sponsor reserves the right to not award the Prize at all. The winner shall be responsible and liable for all federal, state and local taxes on the value of the Prize. Winners shall provide Sponsor with accurate information regarding their identity and country of residence. To receive a complete list of winners, send a self-addressed stamped envelope (specifying which Contest(s) you are requesting the winner(s) of) to Yahoo Inc., Attn: Yahoo Fantasy Slate, 1199 Coleman Ave, San Jose, CA 95110.
If you are a winner, you may be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release. You will be required to provide this information within ten (10) days after Sponsor first attempts to contact you. If you fail to comply with this deadline, or if a prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, Sponsor may disqualify you from further participation, and withhold or revoke any prizes at its sole discretion.
A winner may also be required to provide additional documentation (such as social security number) in order to comply with tax and other legal reporting requirements. Each winner may receive an IRS Form 1099 for the value of the prize awarded. Contest Entities expressly disclaim any responsibility or liability for injury or loss to any person or property relating to the delivery and/or subsequent use of the prizes awarded. Contest Entities make no representations or warranties concerning the appearance, safety, or performance of any prize awarded. Any unclaimed prizes will not be awarded. Restrictions, conditions, and limitations apply. Contest Entities will not replace any lost or stolen prize items.
SELECTION OF WINNER(S) AND PRIZE ALLOCATION:
The winner of the Contest will be the person who answers the most questions correctly out of all entrants in the Contest. If there is a tie and more than one entrant has answered the most questions correctly, all such entrants will be considered winners and the prize will amount awarded to each winner will be equal to the total prize amount for the Contest divided by the number of winners, rounded to the nearest cent; provided, however, that if the number of winners is so large that the amount that would be awarded to each winner is less than $0.01, no Prize will be awarded for such Contest.
The Contest will be conducted under the supervision of the Sponsor. The decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding in all matters relating to this Contest. The winner will be notified in the App; provided, however, that Sponsor reserves the right to determine an alternate method of notification. If an entrant is found to be ineligible, Sponsor may, at its option and sole discretion, choose not to award the Prize (or that portion of the Prize in the event of a tie) at all.
Entrants may access cash prize winnings from their Yahoo account once funds have settled. Requests for access to funds will be honored by the later of five business days of the request or ten business days of the submission of any tax reporting documentation required by applicable law, unless Sponsor believes in good faith that the Entrant engaged in fraudulent conduct or other conduct that would cause Sponsor to be in violation of applicable law. Available funds will be credited directly into the entrant's PayPal account, or such other means as Sponsor determines in its sole discretion.
