WINNING AND ODDS OF WINNING: The odds of winning the $1,000 Investing Contest(s) is one in however many users register for the contest, while remaining registered throughout the contest. Registrants will be able to see the total number of registered users in the “Leaderboard” tab of the contest(s). Each contestant will start off with $1,000,000 in virtual (fake) currency, with which they will be allowed to purchase up to 5 different stocks on paper ("paper trading"). Neither the $1,000,000 in virtual currency or the stocks purchased on paper have real-world redeemable value. The prices of the stocks will reflect their current market prices, though the trades may not execute at the real-time "bid" and "ask" quotes. The contestant with the highest portfolio value, when the contest ends, will win $1,000 USD in cash, which will be paid out via PayPal. If there are multiple winners of the contest, they will each split the $1,000 cash prize. In order to reduce the outcome of ties, the winner of the contest will be chosen based on two criteria: highest dollar amount of the portfolio at the end of the contest and percentage gained at the end of the contest. The user who has the highest portfolio value (in USD) at the end of the contest will win. If there is a tie in terms of portfolio value, then percentage gained, in conjunction with portfolio value, will be the deciding factor of who will be the winner of the contest. If there is still a tie after both of these factors are considered, then the winners will split the $1,000 prize.
PRIZE: Total value of the grand prize is $1,000 (USD). All costs and expenses (including taxes) associated with the cash prize acceptance and use are the sole responsibility of the winner(s). The winner(s) will have to report the earnings to the IRS on the 1099 form.
