MERCHANDISE PRIZES AND DEPOSIT BONUS MONEY
5.1 General Disclaimer
Terms and Conditions for tournaments with merchandise prizes are the same as those for tournaments with Cash Competitions ("Cash Prize Tournaments"), with the following exceptions:
Players may request from SkillvilleGames.com an offer of cash payment in lieu of any prize won, although SkillvilleGames.com is under no obligation to grant such request. If SkillvilleGames.com elects, in its sole discretion, to offer a cash payment in lieu of any prize won, SkillvilleGames.com reserves the right to determine the exact amount of the cash offer, even if such cash offer may be less than the value of the prize. The player may then elect to accept SkillvilleGames.com's cash offer, accept the original prize, or decline both and take nothing. SkillvilleGames.com also reserves the right to credit the account of a merchandise prize winner with cash (the amount of which is in SkillvilleGames.com's sole discretion) in the event the prize remains unclaimed for a certain period of time which shall in no event be less than 30 days.
If a prize has become suddenly unavailable, if the player is outside the continental U.S. or if there are other difficulties in shipping, SkillvilleGames.com has the right, in its sole discretion, to substitute freely the cash equivalent (determined by SkillvilleGames.com's estimated cost to obtain the merchandise prize, and not the manufacturer's suggested retail price or any other price) for any merchandise prize. Players cannot return or exchange prizes that have already been sent for game or cash credits.
For all merchandise tournaments, a minimum number of user entries is required in order for the described prize to be awarded to the tournament winner. If the number of user entries falls below this minimum, the prize will be a cash amount determined in Skillville Games's sole discretion.
In the event of a tie in any Cash Prize Tournament, the prize is divided equally. However, since no one has much use for half a camcorder or half a diamond ring, in the event of a tie in a merchandise prize tournament, the player who posted the tying score first will be considered to have finished ahead of the other tying player(s). For example, if user X and user Y tie for1st place with a score of 1500, and user X finished his/her game at 2:00pm, and user Y finished his/her game at 3:00pm, user X would win the 1st place prize, and user Y would win the 2nd place prize (if any).
As with our Cash Prize Tournaments, users are responsible for applicable income taxes for merchandise prizes. Either the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price, or Site acquisition price, at our discretion, will be used as the cash value of the merchandise prize. The value of the prize will be posted to your account as winnings, and will be deducted from your account as a withdrawal (corresponding to timing of the shipping of the merchandise). Thus, there will be no change in the dollar value of your account, but your year-to-date winnings will increase.
5.5 Delivery Time
Unless otherwise specified, merchandise will ship within 14 days of the date the prize is claimed by the winning player. All goods are shipped F.O.B. Origin, and accordingly SkillvilleGames.com takes no responsibility for any damage incurred during shipping. Costs of shipping are borne by the user, and will be deducted directly from the user's account. In certain specifically disclosed merchandise tournaments, SkillvilleGames.com may choose to bear the cost of shipping within the continental U.S., although SkillvilleGames.com is under no obligation to do so.
In the case of merchandise covered by a manufacturer's warranty, the manufacturer and not SkillvilleGames.com is responsible for initial defects, subsequent use or misuse or covered repairs. In the case of merchandise not covered by a manufacturer's warranty, the merchandise is offered "asis", and SkillvilleGames.com is not responsible for any defects, use or misuse or repairs. SkillvilleGames.com makes no representations or warranties with respect to the authenticity or genuineness of any merchandise prizes, particularly collectible prizes.
5.7 Travel Prizes
Prizes involving travel and tourism will require you to depart from a specified list of cities.
