5. GAME RULES

Game of Skill

BanditStash is a game of skill. Winners are determined by the criteria stated in each contest's rules. For each contest, winners are determined by the individuals who use their skill and knowledge of relevant PGA Tour information and BanditSash contest rules to accumulate the most fantasy points. Fantasy points are accumulated through the performance of individual golfers, sometimes across multiple PGA events.

Contest Term

BanditStash offers contests for PGA Tour events taking place on a single day or at most a week.

Prizes

After each contest ends, prizes are awarded (generally by 10 AM ET the following day). Prizes consist of "Points" and "Nuggets", and cannot be converted to cash, and hold no value outside of the game BanditStash. The Members in each contest who accumulate the most fantasy points will win prizes as set out in the posted contest details. Prizes are added to the winner's account balance, aka their “stash.” In the event of a tie, the prize is divided evenly between the tied Members, unless otherwise specified.

BanditStash offers a number of different types of contests. For each contest, we announce the entry fees and prizes in advance on the contest page. For a summary of entry fees and prizes for currently open contests please login and visit the main lobby.

Prize calculations are based on the results as of the time when final scoring is tabulated by BanditStash. Once prizes are awarded, the scoring results will not be changed regardless of any official adjustments made by the PGA Tour.

No substitution or transfer of prize is permitted. In the event that the awarding of any prizes to winners of the Contest is challenged by any legal authority, BanditStash reserves the right in its sole discretion to determine whether or not to award such prizes.
