9. Each entry received by the Organizer will be assigned a serial number (“Serial Number”). Daily winners will be selected based on the mechanics provided in Clause 10 below.

10. Daily Prizes Winner Selection

The total qualified Serial Numbers allocated for each day will be divided by the number of prizes for the particular day added by one (1) to derive the Shortlisted Serial Numbers. For the avoidance of doubt, the Shortlisted Serial Number will be rounded down to the number resulting from the division. The above mechanics will be applied to derive the Shortlisted Participants for all Daily Prizes.

For example:

If the total qualified Serial Numbers for Day 1 is “1,600” and the number of prizes for Day 1 is “3”, then the total qualified Serial Numbers of “1,600” will be divided by “4” to derive the selected number of “400”. The Shortlisted Participants will then be selected based on the multiples of the selected number of “400”. For example, the participant with the Serial Number “400” shall be the first Shortlisted Participant of Day 1, and the participant with the Serial Number “800” will be the second Shortlisted Participant of Day 1, and the participant with the Serial Number “1,200” will be the third Shortlisted Participant of Day 1, and so forth.

Each of the Shortlisted Participants will be contacted by Star Media Group or its appointed representatives to answer a series of two (2) questions. The Shortlisted Participants must answer the questions correctly to qualify as the Winners for that relevant week and will win a Daily Prize.

In the event that the Shortlisted Participant is unable to answer the questions correctly, he/she will be disqualified, and the substitute Shortlisted Participant will be contacted to answer the two (2) questions to qualify as winner. Refer to Clause 12.

11. Grand Prize Winner Selection

To qualify for the Grand Prize, participants must submit an entry on Day 50 of the Contest (9 September 2021, from 00:00).

The total qualified Serial Numbers allocated for Day 50 of the Contest (9 September 2021) will be divided by five (5) to derive the Shortlisted Serial Number. For the avoidance of doubt, the Shortlisted Serial Number will be rounded down to the number resulting from the division.

For example:

If the total qualified Serial Numbers for Day 50 is “5000”, it will be divided by “5” to derive the selected number of “1,000”. The participant on Day 50 with the Shortlisted Serial Number of “1,000” will be the first Shortlisted Participant for the Grand Prize, and the participant with the Serial Number “2,000” will be the second Shortlisted Participant for the Grand Prize, and the participant with the Serial Number “3,000” will be the third Shortlisted Participant for the Grand Prize, and so forth.

The one (1) out of the five (5) Shortlisted Participants who answers the most number of questions correctly in the fastest time will be the Grand Prize Winner.

In the event there is a tie for the Grand Prize Winner, the two (2) Shortlisted Participants will be asked a tie-breaker question. The Short-Listed Participant who answers that tie-breaker question correctly and in the fastest time will be the Grand Prize Winner.

12. Shortlisted Participants will be contacted via telephone based on the contact number provided during the registration process at any time during office hours (9.00am – 5.30pm).

For example:

If the participant with the Shortlisted Serial Number of “400” is uncontactable after three (3) attempts, the participant with Serial Number of “401”, will be selected as the substitute Shortlisted Participant.
