  1. HOW TO PARTICIPATE AND EARN POINTS: Contestants will be challenged to accurately predict the auction hammer price for up to eighteen (18) Sponsor-designated vehicles (each a "Designated Vehicle", collectively the "Designated Vehicles"), which will be sold at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast 2016 automobile auction (each, an "Auction"). Entrants may submit a fantasy bid ("Contest Bid") in connection with each Auction by following the instructions set forth below. Up to eighteen (18) Auctions will take place during the following periods (collectively, the "Auction Times").

 

  • Thursday, June 23, 2016, beginning at 4:00 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time ("ET") and continuing until the later of either (i) the conclusion of the Auction for the final Designated Vehicle of such day or (ii) at 8:00 p.m. ET;
  • Friday, June 24, 2016, beginning at 2:00 p.m. ET and continuing until the later of either (i) the conclusion of the Auction for the final Designated Vehicle of such day or (ii) at 8:00 p.m. ET; and
  • Saturday, June 25, 2016, beginning at Noon ET and continuing until the later of either (i) the conclusion of the Auction for the final Designated Vehicle of such day or (ii) 8:00 p.m. ET.

 

The timeframe during which a participant may place a Contest Bid for a particular Designated Vehicle (a "Bidding Time"; collectively, the "Bidding Times") will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion and in each case will immediately precede the real-time automobile auction for the Designated Vehicle taking place during Velocity/Discovery Channel's live broadcast of the Barrett-Jackson Northeast 2016 automobile auction (currently scheduled to include the Auction times above, but subject to change in Sponsor's sole discretion, check your local listings and channels). The Bidding Time for each Designated Vehicle will expire upon the earlier of (i) Sponsor's announcement in the applicable broadcast and within the game at the Website that the Bidding Time has expired or (ii) when the Designated Vehicle is placed on the auction block.

 

To participate, visit www.AuctionInsider.com (the "Website"), follow the online instructions to log into the Website using your Facebook login credentials, monitor the broadcasts referenced above and/or the game interface at the Website for the start of each Bidding Time, and then submit your Contest Bid for the applicable Designated Vehicle before the end of the applicable Bidding Time. To submit your Contest Bid, use the Contest interface at the Website to enter the amount (in US dollars) that you believe will be the final auction hammer price of the applicable Designated Vehicle. Participants may not share the same Facebook account. Sponsor's clock shall be the official clock of the Contest. All entry information becomes the property of the Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. Once you have submitted a Contest Bid, it cannot be changed. Note that there is a limit of one (1) Contest Bid per person/Facebook account, per Auction. Note further that in order for all of your points to be counted as it relates to the determination of the Grand Prize winner, you must use the same Facebook account each time you participate in the Contest.

After you have submitted your Contest Bid, you may follow the instructions at the Website to earn additional points (as described in Section 5 below) by sharing Sponsor's message about the Contest (a "Social Share") on your personal Facebook and/or Twitter account, in accordance with the following limits:

  • Limit one (1) Social Share per Facebook account, per Auction;
  • Limit one (1) Social Share per Twitter account, per Auction;

See Section 8 below for additional Social Share requirements and restrictions.

 

IMPORTANT: IF YOU CHOOSE TO PARTICIPATE AS A "GUEST" WITHOUT LOGGING INTO THE WEBSITE USING YOUR FACEBOOK LOGIN CREDENTIALS AS DESCRIBED ABOVE, YOU WILL BE INELIGIBLE TO CLAIM ANY PRIZE, REGARDLESS OF THE NUMBER OF POINTS EARNED OR YOUR POSITION ON ANY LEADERBOARD.

 

  1. SCORING AND WINNER DETERMINATION:

 

Points may be earned for the accuracy of a Contest Bid ("Accuracy Points") as follows: Each participant may earn a maximum of 40,000 Accuracy Points per Designated Vehicle, by submitting a Contest Bid which exactly matches the actual auction hammer price of that vehicle at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast 2016 automobile auction ("Hammer Price"). The less accurate a participant's Contest Bid, the fewer Accuracy Points he/she will earn. For participants whose Contest Bids do not exactly match the applicable Hammer Price, Accuracy Points will be awarded by first determining the greater number of dollars between either: (a) $0 and the Hammer Price; or (b) the Hammer Price and $400,000 (such greater number being the "Maximum Gap"). Next, the number of dollars between the participant's bid and the Hammer Price will be counted (the "Participant's Gap", which is calculated as a positive number, regardless of whether the Contest Bid is higher than or lower than the Hammer Price). Then, the Participant's Gap is divided by the Maximum Gap, and the resulting percentage is multiplied by 40,000. Finally, the resulting number is subtracted from 40,000 to determine number of Accuracy Points the participant earns for the applicable Contest Bid. For example:

  1. presume the Hammer Price of a Designated Vehicle is $150,000, therefore the Maximum Gap is $250,000 (in this case, the greater number of dollars between the Hammer Price and $400,000);
  2. presume a participant's Contest Bid is $155,000, therefore the Participant's Gap is $5,000 (the number of dollars between the Contest Bid and the Hammer Price);
  3. the Participant's Gap is divided by the Maximum Gap ($5,000 divided by $250,000 equals .02, or 2%);
  4. this percentage is then multiplied by 40,000 (40,000 times .02 equals 800), and the resulting number is subtracted from 40,000 (40,000 minus 800 equal 39,200), therefore the participant would earn 39,200 Accuracy Points for this Contest Bid.

 

Points will be awarded for the speed of a Contest Bid ("Speed Points") as follows: Each participant may earn a possible maximum of 4,800 Speed Points, by submitting a Contest Bid immediately upon the start of a Bidding Time. For each second that elapses after a particular Bidding Time has started, one point will be deducted from 4,800, to determine the number of Speed Points awarded in connection with a particular Contest Bid. For example, if a participant submits a Contest Bid five minutes (in other words, 300 seconds) after the applicable Bidding Time has started, the participant will receive 4,500 Speed Points (4,800 minus 300) in connection with the Contest Bid.

 

Points will be awarded for posting a Social Share as follows:

Each participant will earn 1,000 points for each eligible Social Share they complete, subject to the limits stated in Section 4 above.

 

The eligible entrant (as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion) who earns the most points in connection with a particular Auction will be deemed a "First Prize Winner", pending verification of eligibility and continued compliance with these Official Rules and Sponsor's instructions. In the event of a tie for a First Prize, the entrant who submitted his/her applicable bid earlier will prevail. In the event a tie for a First Prize cannot be broken in this manner, the Sponsor will rank the applicable tied entrants in descending alphabetical order by last name (and if necessary then by first name), such that the last name beginning with 'z' would rank higher on the list of potential winners than the last name beginning with 'v.'.

Limit one (1) First Prize per person/household. After winning a First Prize, any points earned by a First Prize winner will only count toward the determination of the Grand Prize winner.

 

The eligible entrant (as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion) who earns the greatest number of total points throughout the entire Contest Period will be deemed the "Grand Prize Winner", pending verification of eligibility and continued compliance with these Official Rules and Sponsor's instructions. In the event of a tie for the Grand Prize, the Sponsor will rank the applicable tied entrants in descending alphabetical order by last name (and if necessary then by first name), such that the last name beginning with 'z' would rank higher on the list of potential winners than the last name beginning with 'v.'.
