  3. Daily prize draw
    On each day that you complete your challenge, you will be automatically registered into a prize draw taking place the following day at 00:01 GMT. Eight players from each daily prize draw will qualify for the final. You can enter unlimited daily prize draws but may only win one final prize draw entry.
  4. Final prize draw
    On January 6, we will hold the final prize draw between the 136 winners of the daily prize draw.

If you win you can choose to exchange the package for a USD $10,000 cash prize with no wagering requirement or withdrawal restrictions.
