How do we award the prizes?
Grand Prize - iPod Shuffle™
One lucky Gametopia.com member will be selected to receive the grand prize "iPod shuffle". The winner will be selected by a random drawing based on Gametopia Points.
To qualify a member must have accumulated a minimum of one hundred (100) "Gametopia points" by midnight (12:00 AM) on the last day of the month to qualify for that months drawing.
Points are accumulated by playing games. For each game played a Gametopia member will receive two (2) points.
For every one hundred (100) points you (Gametopia member) accumulate you will receive one (1) entry into the drawing.
For example: If you are a registered member of Gametopia.com you are awarded two (2) points for every game you play. So for every fifty (50) games you play you will receive one hundred (100) points and 1 entry into the iPod Shuffle™ drawing!
The maximum number of entries any one (1) Gametopia member will receive during any month is fifty (50) regardless of the number of points accumulated by playing games. Points do not carry over to the next month and point totals will be reset between midnight of the last day of the month and 5PM EST on the first day of the following month. During this time the point totals are tabulated and entries for the preceding month’s drawings are calculated.
The prize winner is selected between the 1st and 2nd day of the following month and will be notified by email.
Prizes MUST be claimed within 5 business days of notification by us via email. In the event the winner does not respond to Gametopia.com by return email or other contact information provided in the winning email notification, a new winner will be drawn from the remaining entries.
In the event the winners email address is invalid or "bounces" we will attempt to contact the winner for no more than two (2) days. If we are still unable to contact the winner using methods we deem appropriate a new drawing will be held and a new winner will be drawn from the remaining entries.
Weekly Prize Drawings
Some weeks Gametopia.com will select one or more prize winners. The winner will be drawn from Gametopia members with over 100 points accumulated points for that month. The winner will be notified via email.
Prizes MUST be claimed within 5 business days of notification by us via email. In the event the winner does not respond to Gametopia.com by return email or other contact information provided in the winning email notification a new winner will be drawn from the remaining entries for any given week.
No member may win more than 1 weekly prize for any given month, however a weekly prize winner is eligible for the monthly grand prize drawing.
So if you win a weekly prize the first week of a month you are not eligible to win a weekly prize again during that same month however you will still be entered into the monthly prize drawing. You are also eligible to win prizes during any subsequent months weekly drawings.
