Prizes and rewards

 
 

JUDGES

The winner's decision is made by our panel of professional judges. They all have experience and are involved in basketball sporting activities on their daily basis. We have chosen players, coaches and referees and each of them offer their best opinion in a 100% transparent and fair judging process.

The judges will mark where they think, in their professional opinion, where the center of the ball should be. They all separately guess and choose the location of the ball on Damnkicks secure system. The system then selects the center point of the 3 guesses and that's the winner spot position. The winner of the competition is the one who is the closest to the expert’s position decision.

      Still not sure how to participate? Please watch our How to Play video for more detailed information.

    •   Why play Spot the Ball vs. other Online Competitions?

      Spot the ball is a fun and easy game to play where you are served a basketball picture without a ball in it, and you must use your skills and judgement to pick the location where you think the center of the ball should be.

      The basis of the game is the skill of an entrant versus the skill of professional judges - not versus the chance that the original spot on the basketball picture is picked.

    •   Why don't you use the original ball position to judge the winner?

      We only use basketball pictures that don't have a ball in them at all. So, participants and judges have to guess where the center of the ball should be. But as our panel of judges consists of experienced professionals such as referees, coaches, and players, participants have to match their level of skills to judge the position of the ball like them.

      Using a panel of judges ensures that nobody can ever know the original position of the ball - resulting in a process that is fair, transparent, and honest.

    •   How do I win?

      Prizes are not won with luck, but with skills, using the famous and interactive game Spot the Ball, where users will compete versus other players and a panel of professional judges. There is always a guaranteed winner, the person who is closest (or equal) to the judges’ position.

    •   How many tickets can I buy?

      Users can buy a maximum of 99 tickets per competition.

    •   When does a competition finish?

      The competition finishes once all the tickets have been sold. The total amount of tickets left on each competition is always shown in the Dream Competitions page. Once finished, the judging process will be held in the next 72 hours and the winner will be informed straight away after the judging panel. The name of this person will always be public (on the website and social media channels) to guarantee the transparency of this process.

    •   What happens with my money if a competition doesn’t sell all tickets?

      Damnkicks guarantees a return of the full amount spent by the user in case a competition hasn’t sold out all tickets in a period of 2 months.

    •   Will I get a confirmation for my purchase?

      Yes, indeed users will receive a receipt of the order and competition entries right away after entering. For users that are playing for the very first time, they will also receive an email regarding the confirmation of their account log-in details.

      Users can also check out information about all the competitions that they have entered, their status as well as results on the My Competition page.

  •  JUDGES
    •   How is the winner decided? Are the competition winners chosen at random?

      The winner’s decision is made by our panel of professional judges. They all have experience and are involved in basketball sporting activities daily. We have chosen players, coaches, and referees and each of them offers their best opinion in a 100% transparent and fair judging process.

      The judges will mark where they, in their professional opinion, think the center of the ball should be. They all separately guess and choose the location of the ball on the Damnkicks secure system. The system then selects the center point of the 3 guesses and that’s the winner spot position. The winner of the competition is the closest, if not the same, to the expert’s position decision.

      All judges from Damnkicks have signed a valid contract to guarantee the legality, honesty and transparency of the judging process. At the same time, neither them or a direct family member can be part of our Sneaker Competitions. None of our judges have a previous relationship, neither personal or professional between them.

    •   What happens if more than one person is equidistant to the judge’s position in the Dream Sneaker or Midweek Sneaker Competitions?

      There can be only one winner for each Dream Sneaker and Charity competition. But if a case occurs where more than one player is equidistant to the judge’s final position then the outright winner will be the one who's with the closest second ticket among the players in question.

      Note that if one of the players in this ‘equidistant’ situation has only one ticket, all players who qualify will participate in another Spot the Ball competition online to determine the outright winner. The process will be repeated until one of players' selections is closer to the judges decision.

    •   What if I don’t agree with the judging?

      Our panel of judges includes professional players, referees, and coaches that do their best to determine the position of the ball in a particular basketball picture. So, if a participant denies the judgement of the experts then there is nothing to be done. All we can proclaim is that the final decision is equally fair as well as transparent for all the participants.

    •   Where can I watch or follow the judging process?

      Drawings will be streamed live in the official social media channels from Damnkicks (Youtube and Facebook channels). The specific information about dates and timings will be informed via email to all participants.

  •  WINNERS AND PRIZES
    •   Are there winners of every sneaker/prize each week?

      Participants can choose from 150+ sneakers in the Dream Sneaker Competition line-up and at the end of each week, one sneaker is won. The number of sneakers we offer in the Competitions varies from week to week.

      Once a competition has finished, after all tickets have been sold, the judging process will be held in the next 72 hours and the winner will be informed straight away after the judging panel. The name of this person will always be public (on the website and social media channels) to guarantee the transparency of this process.

      A new competition will start before announcing the winner of the previous competition.

    •   Is there only one winner per competition?

      Only 1 person can win the sneaker prize, however the 25 positions closest to the winner will be awarded free credit. You can check out full details at the How it works section.

    •   Do you deliver sneakers worldwide and will there be any tax to pay?

      We will deliver your sneaker or other prize anywhere in the world, free of charge. All sneakers are delivered with UK VAT paid. There may, however, be further import/registration or luxury goods duties in certain countries which in general we do not pay for. At the same time, the user who wins a pair of sneakers is the sole responsible for taxes and fees related to prizes on the legislation of their territory.

    •   What happens if there is no availability or a change of price of the pair of sneakers I won?

      There is the possibility of choosing a different prize but always with the same price range. Please read our Terms and Conditions for full details about this topic.

      Damnkicks reserves the right to modify the prizes based on price changes from the announced on the website at the beginning of each competition.

    •   Is there a cash alternative?

      We do not offer any cash alternative for any of our competitions.

    •   Who decides what sneakers can be won?
