Those who enter on or before 4:00 pm Monday, September 7th will be eligible to compete in a three week mini contest (the final three weeks of the pro football regular season). The entry selecting the most winners over the final three weeks of the season will win the aggregate $15,000 prize, which is provided by the Westgate SuperBook and does not come out of the entry fees. Ties will be divided equally.

5. The Westgate SuperBook shall offer a $15,000 aggregate bonus to the entry that selects 67% (or better) winners for the entire season. Ties (pushes) will be the SuperContest prize monies or entry fees. If more than one entry qualifies for this bonus, the $15,000 will be divided equally.

6. The SuperContest is based on picking winning teams against the Westgate SuperBook contest line. Contestants must select five teams per week, per entry. Contestants may not select both sides of the game on a single entry. However, contestants may select one side of the game on one entry and the opposite side of the same game on a separate entry.

7. Contest winners will be determined by the total number of points accumulated during the pro football regular season (see rule 14). Each winning selection will be credited as one point. Ties (pushes) count as one half point.

8. Contestants must submit their weekly selections to the Westgate SuperBook by 11:00 am each Saturday morning, except when contestant wishes to use any game that starts before this deadline. If a contestant wishes to use any game that is scheduled to start before this deadline, their weekly selections must be submitted prior to the start of those games. Any contestant who fails to submit their weekly selections by 11:00 am Saturday will be awarded zero points that week. THIS TIME DEADLINE WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED.

9. Weekly selection sheets will be available at approximately 5 pm each Wednesday. Contestant selections will be available in the Westgate SuperBook each Saturday afternoon. Current standings will be available in the Westgate SuperBook each Tuesday afternoon. Current standings and selections may be available on for information purposes only. The Westgate Superbook shall not be responsible for any errors and/or misinformation on its website. Official standings and selections are only available in the Westgate SuperBook.

10. Each contestant may authorize a proxy to submit their selections by properly signing and authorizing such. Both contestant and proxy must sign up, in person, at the same time in the SuperBook.

11. Contestants/proxies will be required to swipe SuperContest ID card and enter their PIN (personal identification number) at the Westgate SuperBook self-service contest window to make their selections. By signing the official entry form, the entrant becomes the "official contestant" and is the only one approved to collect any prize monies. Proxies are not eligible to collect any prize monies. Contestants may share winnings by filling out form 5754 once the SuperContest becomes official. Please note there will be a $5 service charge to replace any lost SuperContest ID card.

12. Weekly selections can only be submitted one time per entry. Contestants/proxies cannot void weekly selections after the business day they were submitted. Weekly SuperContest tickets needed to be voided must be submitted to a supervisor for approval. In the event a contestant has two entries, a contestant/proxy must submit separate weekly selections per entry. If more than one weekly selection is erroneously accepted for an entry, the first entry for weekly selections associated with that entry will be the offical selections of record.

13. The ticket (receipt) generated by the Westgate SuperBook computer system is the official entry of record. The contestant's official selections will be those contained in the Westgate SuperBook computer system records. If a ticket is not generated via the self-service contest window, the constestant must see a supervisor immediately to get a printed copy of their weekly picks. The "selection sheet" itself is not valid for any purpose.

14. The pro football regular season must consist of at least ten (10) weeks for the SuperContest to be considered valid. If the regular season is shortened to less than ten (10) weeks, the SuperContest will be cancelled and all entry fees will be refunded. The entire 17 week regular season schedule must be played in order to win the early sign up bonus (rule 4), and the 67% (or better) winners bonus (rule 5).

15. All Westgate SuperBook House Rules and Regulations apply to this contest unless otherwise stipulated in these rules.

16. Signup deadline: 11:00 am Saturday, September 12, 2015. Signup deadline to be eligible for the early sign-up bonus, 4:00 pm Monday, September 7, 2015.

17. The Westgate SuperBook reserves the right to cancel this contest or refuse to accept any registration or wager if the same could violate any federal, state or county law, ordinance or regulation. Furthermore, the Westgate SuperBook may cancel the contest in the event of technical difficulties or other occurrences beyond the control of the Westgate SuperBook.

18. Entries may be accepted manually in case of a system failure or other unforeseen circumstances as deemed by Westgate SuperBook management.

19. Entry fees will not be refunded other than for the cancellation of the SuperContest.

20. Tie-breaking rules will be applied to determine first place only. Entries tying for second through fiftieth place will equally split aggregate prize money from the respective place. If ties exist after the pro football regular season for first place, the champion will be determined based on the entry that accumulated the most contest points during the final three weeks of the regular season. If total points accumulated during the final three weeks is equal most points accumulated during the fourth to the final week will determine the winner, and so on weekly (in reverse order), until the tie is broken. In the unlikely occurrence of a tie after the tie-breakers, co-champions will be declared and the aggregate prize money will be split equally.

21. In the eventuality of a game cancellation or postponement the game must be played by Tuesday of that week to be applied toward contest standings or contestant will be awarded zero points for that game. In addition if the game is not played by Tuesday of that week the game will be considered a loss for figuring the 67% bonus prize.

22. After the final winners are posted, a three (3) day verification period will be allowed. Any disputes with the contest and results or prize allocation must be provided to management in writing within this verification period. At the end of this time, the SuperContest results will be declared official. In the event of a dispute, the decision of management is final.

23. By entering the contest, each individual contestant grants permission to the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino to use his or her name and photograph for publicity purposes.

24. Employees of the Westgate Race and Sports Book and their immediate families are not eligible to compete or serve as a proxy in the SuperContest.
