1.   Application Of These Rules:  These Official Rules, known as the “The Winning Seat Master Rules,” or “Master Rules” shall apply to any promotional program, offer, sweepstakes, contest or similar giveaway (collectively, “Promotion(s)”) conducted through TLS Holdings, Inc.(“The Winning Seat” or “Sponsor”) that specifically refers to these Master Rules. The Winning Seat reserves the right to modify or amend these Master Rules at any time. Any such modification will not affect any Promotion in existence as of the date of the modification, except as provided in Section 8 below. In the event of a conflict between the terms of these Master Rules and the rules announced for a specific Promotion (“Promotion Rules”), the Promotion Rules will apply. 


2.   Eligibility:  The Promotion is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia (if the total ARV of all prizes for a Promotion is over $5,000 the Promotion shall exclude New York and Florida, if the total ARV of all prizes for a Promotion is $5,000 or less, the Promotion shall include New York and Florida), who are 18 years of age or older and located in the U.S. at the time of entry who have been invited to participate in the Promotion directly by The Winning Seat.

Void elsewhere and where prohibited by law.


3.   Promotion Period: See the Promotion Rules applicable to the Promotion.


4.   How to Enter:  In order to participate in a Promotion, an individual must follow these steps:

  1. Download or access The Winning Seat application via mobile on Andriod/iOS (the "Application") or website at http://www.thewinningseat.com (the "Website") to participate in the Promotion;
  2. Register in the Application or Website providing all required information;
  3. Sign up for one or more Events in the Application or Website (an event is a live event with one or more actions that do not have pre-determined outcomes which is offered within the Application or Website) (an "Event") and follow the instructions for the Event to enter in a Promotion;
  4. Follow the Promotion Rules applicable to the Promotion (available in the Application or Website from the official Promotion Rules link on the Event Details page for each Event). Prizes will be listed in the Promotion Rules for each Promotion no later than 1 hour prior to each Promotion's start time.

Completion of these steps shall be deemed a “Submission” or “Entry” for purposes of these Master Rules. An individual following all of these steps is an “Entrant” or “Participant” in the Promotion. There is no cost to participate in an Event or Promotion.


5.    Submissions:  During an Event an Entrant may be notified via the Application or Website if he/she has been randomly selected as a potential prize winner. If the Entrant is selected as a potential prize winner, the Entrant will be notified of an action that may or may not occur during the Event (an “Action”) along with a countdown timer (if a countdown time is available for this Event) and an associated prize (the “Prize”). If the Action occurs before the countdown timer reaches zero (0), the Entrant will be the winner of the prize indicated, subject to validation by the Judging Agency. If no countdown time is available for this Event, the Entrant will be the winner of the prize indicated, subject to validation by the Judging Agency. For example, an Entrant has signed up for a baseball game event and receives a notice that “Home Run” must occur within the next 30 seconds in order to win a $100 cash prize, if a home run occurs within that 30 seconds at that particular event, the Entrant will win $100, if however, a home run does not occur within the next 30 seconds the Entrant will not win the $100 prize. The odds of winning will depend upon the number of Entrants in each event and the odds of each action occurring. The Sponsor’s servers will record the time the action occurred in real time and validate the occurrence of each Action for each Event. The recorded time the action occurred, may or may not be exactly the time the Action occurred; however, for purposes of the applicable Promotion Rules, the time recorded will be the official time used to compare the Entrant’s countdown time start and stop and the recorded time on the Sponsor’s server. The “30” second countdown is for example purposes only. Due to the fact that network and broadcast delays vary, the “Countdown” and the “Actual” recorded action time, may or may not sync with your viewing device.


LIMIT ONE (1) SIGN UP PER PERSON/EMAIL ADDRESS/EVENT. All Entries become the exclusive property of the Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned except as provided herein. Entries which are incomplete, incorrect, incomprehensible, not received, or do not otherwise comply with these Master Rules or the applicable Promotion Rules will not be entered into the Promotion. Entries made by third party entry service, automated means, or in any other manner not specifically allowed under these Official Rules will not be entered into the Promotion and may result in disqualification.
