No Purchase Necessary to Participate or Win. “Beat the Leader” (“Promotion”) entry period begins at 10 p.m. Eastern time on September 3, 2013 and ends on December 29th, 2013 at midnight EST (the “Promotion Period”). Participant team selections and confidence scores will be closed at the earliest scheduled kickoff during the week of play, and no modifications to any picks will be allowed. Participation in this promotion constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these Official Rules.
How to Enter. Participants will visit www.beattheleader.com and create an account by logging into their Facebook account or by using their email address and creating a password. All participants will be prompted and required to pick a “home store” Old Chicago. Participants then will select the winners of every NFL game for each week of play on a weekly basis (weeks 1 through 17 of the NFL football season), ranking each game with their “confidence score” (1-16, 2-16, 3-16, 4-16) for the specific week. A participant’s confidence score indicates how many points they are designating for the selected team to win their game for the specific week of play. Confidence scores cannot be used more than once. If the team selected wins the game for that week of play, the participant will earn the points designated by the confidence score.
Example – Participant picks Team A to win with a confidence score of 16, Team B to win with a confidence score of 15, Team C to win with a confidence score of 14. If teams A, B and C win, the participant’s score will be 45 points (16+15+14=45). If teams A & B win, the participant’s score will be 31 points (16+15=31). If teams B & C win, the participant’s score will be 29 points (15+14=29). If only team C wins, the participant’s score will be 14 points. If no selected team wins, the participant’s score will be 0 points.
Picks and confidence scores for Thursday’s game will lock at kickoff of the Thursday game. All remaining games (Saturday, Sunday, or Monday) will lock at the next earliest kickoff. After all picks are locked, participants will not be allowed to modify any picks or confidence scores. As a weekly tiebreaker, participants will also predict the final combined score of both teams in the Monday Night Football Game of that week’s play (or the Green Bay Packers/Chicago Bears game during Week 17), and will be used to determine the winner in each restaurant if multiple participants tie for the highest weekly score. The participant who comes closest to predicting the total combined score of the Monday Night Football game will be declared the week’s Weekly Leader. Participants can log in to see their current score and view their picks, but will not be able to change the picks for the current week of play after kickoff of the first game of play for the week. Participants are allowed to edit picks for any week of play that has not yet begun. The website (www.beattheleader.com) will automatically score each participant’s weekly picks based on the accumulated number of points earned for selecting winning teams, specific for the week’s play, and track the total points scored for the entire season. Prior to the first game of each week, all participants MUST have completed filling out their picks for that specific week of play in order to submit a valid entry for that week. The picks for Thursday games will be locked at kickoff time of the start of the Thursday game of the week (Thursday at 8:25 PM ET Weeks 1-12, 14-15; Thursday at 12:30 PM ET). All remaining games will lock at the earliest remaining kickoff time (Sunday at 1:00 PM ET Weeks 1 - 17). Participants will compete against other players within their chosen “home store” for prizes awarded at the restaurant level.
Determining Winners: All scoring can be tracked at www.beattheleader.com. To determine weekly winners, the following scoring system will be used.
“Weekly Leader”: The participant with the highest weekly score for the week of play in EACH participating restaurant, including higher than “The House” score (“The House” score will be the final score of the picks of Old Chicago management), will be awarded Weekly Leader status for the upcoming week and receive a Beat the Leader Old Chicago voucher valued at $25, valid through 02/02/2014. In the event that a location has multiple participants with the same amount of points at the end of the week of play, a tiebreaker will be used. Participants will predict the final combined score of both teams in the weekly Monday Night Football game (or the designated tiebreaker game in Week 17). In case there is a tie in the first tiebreaker, the winners will be placed in a random drawing to be awarded the Weekly Leader Prize. The alternate winner(s) in the random drawing will be awarded the “Beat The Leader” prize. Weekly Leader winners will be notified of their winnings via email on the Tuesday after the completed week of play.
“Beat The Leader”: Each week, all participants who beat both the Restaurant Weekly Leader for the current week and The House scores at their Home Store will win a Free Appetizer Card, to be picked up at their Old Chicago home store.
