Rules of play

How the game works:

  • The left and right arrows move you, and you hit the space bar to shoot.
  • Shooting a Bitcoin icon gets you extra lives and shooting a crown icon makes you bullet-proof for 30 seconds.
  • On each level, you need to score as many points as possible before you run out of time.
  • You're allowed a maximum of 5 entries per level.
  • You need to complete all 3 levels of the game to be entered into the draw.

How the competition works:

  • The game launches on 8 October 2017 and runs until 28 February 2018.
  • King Price will draw 8 finalists randomly from all the entries, by 15 March 2018, and the finalists will be notified by email.
  • The finalists will be invited to attend the final event at the end of March 2018.
  • Finalists will have to play in person and can't transfer their spot in the final event to anyone else.
  • Should a finalist not be able to play at the final event, another finalist will be drawn as a replacement.
  • The final event will consist of randomly-drawn, knock-out stages.
  • Winners may choose the Rand-equivalent of their Bitcoin prize to be paid out in cash.
  • The R1 million Bitcoin prize will be shared between the top 3 players as follows: The winner gets R600,000; the runner-up gets R300,000; and second runner-up gets R100,000.
  • The prizes will be paid within 2 weeks of the final event.
  • The Rand value of a Bitcoin on the date of the final event will determine the amount of Bitcoin currency that the winners will receive.

Who can play:

  • Anyone! (But King Price staff, suppliers, shareholders and partners, and their immediate families, can’t win any Bitcoin. Sorry, it’s a legal thing.)
  • You must be 18 years or older and a SA citizen or permanent resident to compete for the prize.

Our end of the deal:

  • If you're a winner, we'll pay your prize into your Bitcoin account.

Your end of the deal:

  • By accepting our T's and C's (this doc) you accept that King Price can email you game updates and product-related info.
  • If you win, you need to open a Bitcoin account (if you don't already have one) and provide us with the details.

The tough stuff:

  • King Price may change the details of the final event due to circumstances that are out of our control.
  • The judges' decision is final and cannot be challenged.
