You acknowledge and agree that you have no right to modify, edit, alter or enhance any of the Materials in any manner. A subcategory of the Materials is software that is accessed through the Site ("Game Software") and in addition to the license grant set forth above in this section, WGT grants you the limited right to access and cache the Game Software solely for your noncommercial use in connection with your participation in the Site.

The Application(s) may include downloadable software. In addition, WGT makes certain downloadable software applications available for download and use in connection with various Applications (the "App Software"). In addition to the license grant set forth above in this section, WGT grants you the limited right to download the App Software solely for your noncommercial use.

These limited licenses terminate automatically, without notice to you, if you breach any of these Terms. Upon termination of any of these limited licenses, you agree to immediately destroy any electronic or printed Materials or App Software, as applicable.

WGT provides dynamic environments for virtual sports game play. You acknowledge and agree that that in the course of providing this dynamic environment, WGT will, without providing notice, be making ongoing modifications and improvements to the Applications, Game Software and/or to the App Software from time to time in the course of the operation and development of the Site and/or Application(s).

In addition, you agree that WGT retains the sole and unfettered right to change, remove or modify the available virtual items from time to time (which may among other things make one or more virtual items more or less effective or functional, more common or less common, or eliminated entirely). You may not use, distribute, develop, promote or facilitate use of cheats, automation software (bots), hacks, mods or any other unauthorized third-party software designed to modify the WGT game experience to the detriment of fair play.

WGT Credits or Coins

WGT may offer in-game credits or coins (either for purchase or for free, at WGT's discretion) that enable you to participate in on-line games and purchase virtual merchandise and other items through the Site (the "WGT Credits"). By purchasing or obtaining WGT Credits, WGT is granting you a limited license right to you to utilize certain features of our product and service offering as allowed by WGT. WGT Credits do not have monetary or stored value or any credit balance of real currency or its equivalent and are not redeemable for money at any time. WGT may regulate, modify and/or eliminate WGT Credits at any time at its discretion with no liability to you or to any third party from the exercise of such right. You agree that you will not, under any circumstances gather or transfer WGT Credits or virtual items for sale or use the Application(s) or any part thereof for performing in-game services, such as power-leveling and item collection services, in exchange for payment outside the Application(s).

In-Game Skill Based Competitions

As part of regular WGT game play, WGT may sponsor and give you the opportunity to participate in Competitions ("Competitions"). You must be over the age of 13 to participate and no purchase or payment is necessary to participate in such Competitions. The odds of obtaining WGT Credits in Competitions depend on the number of eligible participants in and their relative skill in the Competitions.

Competitions, where the winner obtains a physical or tangible prize, are open to individuals who are 18 years of age or older or the age of majority in the entrant's state or province/territory of residence, whichever is greater. To participate in a Competition where the winner obtains a physical or tangible prize, you must not be a resident of or be physically located at the time of play (a) the United States who resides in Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Montana, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, or Vermont, or be subject to the laws of one of those states, (b) Brazil, Argentina, the People's Republic of China, South Korea, Japan, or (c) any other jurisdiction that WGT excludes in its sole discretion. To participate in certain Competitions where the winner obtains a physical or tangible prize, you may be required to submit to WGT documentation to verify your eligibility and to verify your age and/or residency and, if the physical or tangible prizes you have obtained in a given year have a value over $600, a completed W-9 tax form.

Employees, officers, and directors of WGT and its affiliated entities, parent, subsidiaries, advertising, promotional agencies, legal advisors, their immediate family members and persons living in their same household, are not eligible to enter or participate in Competitions. Void where restricted, taxed or prohibited by law. Individuals that obtain WGT Credits in the Competitions will be determined and announced on or about the fifteenth (15th) calendar day following each monthly Competition and between one (1) and three (3) weeks following each weekly Competition. In the event of a tie, the participant that entered the Competition earlier will obtain the WGT Credits.

For the avoidance of doubt, Apple Inc., Google Inc., and Amazon Inc., are not sponsors of, or in any way involved in, any Competitions.

In-Game Person to Person Skill Based Challenges

As part of regular WGT game play, WGT may sponsor and give you the opportunity to obtain WGT Credits and/or other virtual items or physical or tangible prizes in certain in-game person to person skill based challenges ("Challenges"). The odds of obtaining WGT Credits in a Challenge depend on your relative skill in the Challenge.

Individuals who are 13 years of age or older may enter Challenges, except that Challenges where the winner obtains a physical or tangible prize are only open to individuals who are 18 years of age or older or the age of majority in the entrant's state or province/territory of residence, whichever is greater. To participate in a Challenge where the winner obtains a physical or tangible prize, you must not be a resident of or be physically located at the time of play (a) the United States who resides in Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Montana, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, or Vermont, or be subject to the laws of one of those states, (b) Brazil, Argentina, the People's Republic of China, South Korea, Japan, or (c) any other jurisdiction that WGT excludes in its sole discretion. Employees, officers, and directors of WGT and its affiliated entities, parent, subsidiaries, advertising, promotional agencies, legal advisors, their immediate family members and persons living in their same household, are not eligible to enter or participate in Challenges. Void where restricted, taxed or prohibited by law.

To participate in a Challenge, you must first select the type of game you would like to play on the Challenge Page. If you are proposing a Challenge to another user, you must select a user as a challenger that has selected the same type of game and select how many WGT Credits you are willing to submit as your share of the WGT Credits for that Challenge with such user. If you accept a Challenge that another user proposed, you agree to match the same amount of WGT Credits as that submitted by the user that proposes the Challenge you accept. Each player will pay a separate fee to WGT for the Challenge game as a payment made solely for the operation of the services and facilities necessary to participate in the Challenge (the "Participant Fee").

When you participate in a Challenge, the amount of the WGT Credits that you challenged plus the Participant Fee are immediately placed on hold within your Account. At the conclusion of the Challenge, the Participant Fee will be subtracted from each player's Account. The Participant Fees are not refundable. The Challenge participants will then receive the WGT Credits, virtual items and/or physical or tangible prize they obtained according to the rules of the Challenge game and game type selected.

Individuals that obtain WGT Credits, virtual items and/or physical or tangible prize in each Challenge will be determined and posted on the Site and/or Application upon completion of the Challenge. In the event of a tie, WGT shall have the right to require the participants to participate in another game to determine who has the best score in the Challenge.

Third parties may provide certain information and content to WGT ("Third Party Content"). The Third Party Content is, in each case, the copyrighted work of the creator/licensor, and may be subject to terms of use and/or privacy policies of such third parties.

When you choose a username, team name or otherwise create a label that can be seen by other players using the games, you must abide by the following guidelines as well as the rules of common decency. If WGT finds such a label to be offensive or improper, it may, in its sole and absolute discretion, change the name, remove the label and corresponding chat room, and/or suspend or terminate your use of the games.

In particular, you may not use any name:

  1. Belonging to another person, including pop culture figures or celebrities, with the intent to impersonate that person, including without limitation a "Game Master" or any other employee or agent of WGT;
