2. RULES OF THE CONTEST:

Entrance into the Contest is free. There are no limits to the number of Contests a MajorityRules User, (“Entrant”) may enter. There are no limits to the number of Entrants per Contest.
The Contest will take place using a game show format. Entrants will generally be asked 10 (ten) questions. However, we may adjust the number of questions asked during any particular game at our sole and exclusive discretion. Entrants will have 15 (fifteen) seconds to answer each question. Entrants must enter their responses by typing in the text of their answer. MajorityRules uses a specific algorithm to correct and convert any common misspellings and common synonyms. There will only be one correct answer to each question and the correct answer is the most common answer as determined by polling.


Entrants who answer the question correctly will remain in the Contest. If an entrant answers a question incorrectly, they will be allowed to continue to answer questions, but will not be eligible for a prize, unless they carry an extra life or lives. If an entrant answers a question incorrectly but has an extra life (the usage of only one extra life is allowed per game), they may choose to stay in the game and still be eligible for a prize by using that extra life. Entrants must answer all questions correctly to receive a prize.

Entrants are able to communicate amongst themselves in an online “room” prior to the start of the Contest. Entrants will be able to continue their communications throughout the duration of the Contest. While there are no prohibitions on the content of the communications during the game, Users may only initiate conversations with individuals they are already connected to, via an uploaded address book, a social media link, or approved friendship invites through the application. Through the various invitations that may happen in a “room,” however, Users may be subject to conversations with individuals they do not personally know.

Please be advised this specifically means Entrants may communicate about the questions and proposed responses throughout the Contest play.

3. PRIZES:

Prizes are provided by Company, as sponsor of the contest, to eligible prize winners.

In order to be eligible for a prize, Entrants must answer all questions correctly. The prize pool will be posted in the application’s home screen. The prize will be split equally among eligible Entrants who answer all questions correctly.

If no Entrants answers all questions correctly, or an Entrant answers all questions correctly but is deemed ineligible for any reason in our sole and exclusive discretion, then no prize will be awarded.
