All users above the age of 18 accessing the Web Portal/App and/or Contests from Bangladesh are eligible to win prizes. Furthermore, in case any user is aged less than 18 years as on the date of participation in the Contests, such user is eligible to win prizes provided he/she has obtained the consent of his/her parent or lawful guardian to participate in the Contests and accept prizes; in such circumstances, CricWhiz reserves the right to seek written documentation of such consent of the parent or lawful guardian at any time as a condition to such user’s continued use of the Web Portal/App or participation in the Contests or before disbursing prizes to such minor user.

The winner of each prize shall be announced within a reasonable period of time after the completion of the match/series or format of the Game in relation to which such prize is being offered. The winners shall be notified by email to the account specified in their account information and by publication on the Web Portal/App. After notification by email, users shall have 7 days to respond, to verify their identity and residence and claim the prize from CricWhiz in accordance with the procedure set out in the email notification. However, if winners cannot be contacted, are unavailable, or fail to comply with these Terms, the prize issued to them shall stand forfeited, and may thereafter be withdrawn or issued to the next in line eligible user, at the sole discretion of CricWhiz. CricWhiz is not obliged to inform such a winning user of the disentitlement; however, it may choose to bring the same to the notice of the winning user through any of the means available to it.

CricWhiz is not obliged to inform such a winning user of the disentitlement; however, it may choose to bring the same to the notice of the winning user through any of the means available to it.

CricWhiz shall not be responsible for any cost, expense or other liability whatsoever in relation to, arising from or connected with the prize or its quality. CricWhiz makes no representation as to the quality, suitability or merchantability; and extends no guarantee or warranty relating to prize.
