Once PTF app is installed and your registration is duly completed, you may then choose to make your prediction using PTF Facebook Game* when the Prediction card is available through a challenge or otherwise.
* Users who make a prediction on PTF Facebook Game and who have not registered through PTF app (using the same Facebook account) will not be able to register their prediction in the Contest or be eligible to receive the prize. Registration through PTF app is mandatory to enter the Contest. In addition, predictions made prior to registration to PTF app will not be eligible in the Contest. PTF Facebook Game version may not contain all the features of PTF app.
There will be seven (7) different Prediction cards available during each Participation Period. The exact entry period may vary from one Prediction card to another, depending on the nature of the prediction and other factors. The time remaining to enter a prediction will be posted on each Prediction card. Make sure to enter your prediction in due time. It is the entrant’s responsibility to monitor the progress of the Contest during each Participation Period to make sure a minimum of five (5) of the available seven (7) predictions are submitted prior to the deadline set for each available Prediction card.
Some of the Prediction cards will require a numerical answer. To obtain an exact prediction, you must enter the exact number, including the exact decimal, as the case may be. The Prediction scores will not be rounded up.
Other Prediction cards will require you to rank answers from “most likely” to “least likely”. To obtain an exact prediction, you must get the first answer (most likely) correct. The ranking of the other choices will not be relevant for the purpose of this Contest.
How to win the prize
To win the prize, you must correctly answer a minimum of five (5) predictions out of the seven (7) Prediction cards available during a single Participation Period.
When a Participation Period has ended and the answers are available, the Contest Organizers will reveal the answers to such questions on PTF app beginning on Tuesday on or about, but no earlier than 12:00 pm ET, at the rate of one (1) or more answers revealed per day, if any, at the Contest Organizers sole discretion. All answers will be published no later than the following Sunday at 11:59 am ET.

Note that these results are based on all combined Participation Periods and on the usual calculation of points in PTF app and do not represent the results of this Contest, which are based solely on the exactitude of the answers. Any Leaderboard is for entertainment purposes ONLY and does not supersede our verification process as described herein.
Limits. Entrants must respect the following limits otherwise they will be disqualified:
One (1) prediction per Prediction card per PTF app registration per Participation Period.
