Last updated: April 1, 2020

These terms and conditions ("Contest Terms") governs your participation and submission of materials to the contests organized or sponsored by Futureplay Oy, a Finnish company (business ID 2678269-6) having its registered office at Köydenpunojankatu 2a D, 00180 Helsinki, Finland. Futureplay’s Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, Fan Content Policy and other policies also govern your participation in the contests.


The more detailed information related to each contest, including the contest rules, participation period, prizes, eligibility criteria and other such matters, are determined by Futureplay and informed to all participants in the contest notice or otherwise.

Participation in the contests is free of charge. Each participant may only make one submission to each contest (unless otherwise stated in the contest rules). Please note that you need to submit your entry prior to the given deadline in order to qualify for the contest. The winners of each contest will be determined in accordance with the contest rules. Futureplay will confirm the results and this decision by Futureplay is final and binding. Futureplay will notify the winners together with instructions on how to claim the prize in question. Futureplay may cancel or suspend the contest or otherwise alter the contest rules if that is reasonably necessary, for example, due to technical problems, fraud or other such reasons not controlled by Futureplay.
