Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) will apply:
in conjunction with any specific terms and conditions of any applicable promotion. Where any specific terms and conditions conflict with these Terms and Conditions, the specific terms of the applicable promotion shall apply; and
to the ITV7 Competition entered into, and as defined in Paragraph 4 (The Competition) below.
You will be deemed to have accepted these Terms and Conditions and agreed to be bound by them when entering the Competition.
For the purposes of these Terms and Conditions, any reference to “you”, or “entrant(s)” are to persons who have entered the Competition in accordance with the terms set out at Paragraph 5 (How to Enter).
Please note that Apple Inc. or Alphabet Inc. is in no way linked or associated with this Competition as accessed via the ITV Racing App or ITV7 App (as defined below).
The Competition may be featured and promoted on the ITV Racing programme scheduled on the ITV TV channels from time to time (the “Programme”).
For Broadcast Competitions: the Promoter is both ITV Consumer Limited of 2 Waterhouse Square, 140 Holborn, London, EC1N 2AE and Hestview Limited of 4 Wellington Place, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 4AP (trading as Sky Games) jointly.
For Non-Broadcast Competitions: the Promoter is Hestview Limited only. ITV is not responsible in any way for the promotion or administration of the Competition, the fulfilment of any prizes, or the processing of any personal data, in each case in relation to Non-Broadcast Competitions.
(together (as applicable), the “Promoter”).
The Competition is open to persons aged 18 or over and resident in the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man, except for:
employees of the Promoter and/or each of their associated companies;
employees of agents and/or suppliers of the Promoter and/or its associated companies who are professionally connected with the Competition and/or its administration; or

Where an entrant does not meet the criteria detailed within these Terms and Conditions their entry will not be valid and they will not be eligible to receive a prize.
ITV7 is a free-to-enter competition related to horseracing. The competition consists of rounds where a jackpot can be won by an entrant picking the winners of a set of races (maximum of seven races per round) run on any one day (the “Competition” and each round of the Competition being a “Round”).
Each Round of the Competition consists of (i) either solely races which ITV is showing live on its UK broadcast channels or a mix of races which ITV is showing live on its UK broadcast channels and races which ITV is not showing live on its UK broadcast (each such Round being a “Broadcast Competition”);or (ii) solely races which ITV is not showing live on its UK broadcast channels (each such Round being a “Non-Broadcast Competition”).
Where multiple entrants correctly select the winning horse from each of the seven races in the Round, or no entrants correctly identify the winning horse from each of the races but two or more perform equally well as the best in the ranking system for the Consolation Prize, a winner of the Jackpot Prize or Consolation Prize (as may be the case) will be selected through a tie breaker, as set out in Paragraph 6 below.
How to Enter
The Competition will be available for participants to enter via the ITV Racing mobile app (“ITV Racing App”), the ITV7 mobile app (“ITV7 App”), and the ITV7 website at https://itv7.itv.com (collectively, the “Entry Points”).
The opening and/or closing times (as applicable) for each Round will be displayed clearly: (i) on each of the Entry Points; and/or (ii) in the Programme (for Broadcast Competitions only).
The round closing time will always be prior to the start of the first race of that Round.
Entry to the Competition is free. Data charges may apply (check with your internet service provider or mobile network).
In order to enter a Round of the Competition, you must:
log-in to one of the Entry Points using a Sky Games user account;
select one horse from each of the seven horse races selected by the Promoter for the applicable Round (the “Picks”); and
select the winning distance of the final race of that Round (the “Tie Breaker”),
prior to the closing time specified for the Round.
Entrants are able to edit their Picks and Tie Breaker answer until the closing time of the Round (as specified on the Entry Points). Once the Round has closed, entrants cannot change their Picks and Tie Breaker answer for that Round.
Only one account is permitted to be registered per entrant. Only one entry per Round is permitted per entrant. If the Promoter believes that any one person has made or may have made more than one entry to any Round of the Competition then the Promoter may disqualify all entries that the Promoter believes have been made by that person.
By registering for an account, you authorise the Promoter to conduct any identification, credit or other verification checks that it may require (either for its own purposes or as required by applicable law or a regulatory body), including (but not limited to) checking any or all of the details you provide when registering or changing your account details. In particular, the Promoter may verify that you are 18 (eighteen) years of age or older and that you are resident in the country in which you say you are resident. If the Promoter discovers that you are under 18 years of age following verification checks or that you have not met any other verification criteria, your account shall be closed, and all entries will be disqualified from participating in the Competition and/or receiving any Prizes (as defined below).
If the Promoter has reasonable grounds to believe that multiple accounts have been opened by, or are under the control of the same person, all such accounts shall be closed and all entries by such person and/or accounts held by such person will be disqualified from participating in the Competition and/or receiving any Prizes (as defined below). The Promoter may, at its discretion, base its decision on the entrant’s email address, name, IP address or any other information, data, variables or factors.
The Promoter does not accept any responsibility for network, computer hardware or software failures of any kind, which may restrict or delay the sending or receipt of your entry.
Under no circumstances are you permitted to submit your entry via email. Any entries submitted by email will be automatically disqualified.
How does the Competition work?
Prior to the start of the first horserace for each Round, entrants must ensure that they have selected their Picks, and submitted an answer to the Tie Breaker question.
If any Pick corresponds to a non-runner in any of the races then that Pick will be replaced with the SP favourite (“SP Favourite”) for the applicable race. The SP Favourite is the favourite chosen by the Press Association racing feed. If there are joint SP Favourites then the Pick will be replaced with the SP Favourite with the lowest racecard number.
If for any reason the information to determine the SP Favourite is not available to the Promoter, or if the Promoter reasonably determines that the use of the SP Favourite would not be appropriate for any reason, then the Promoter may elect to use a different mechanism to replace non-runners.
All entrants, at time of entry, must answer the Tie Breaker question by selecting what distance they think the winning horse of the final race in the Round will win by.
The Tie Breaker will come into effect under the following circumstances:
Jackpot Tied Entrants - two or more entrants correctly pick the winning horse from each of the seven races in the Round; or
Consolation Tied Entrants - No entrant correctly picks the winning horse from each of the seven races in the Round and two or more entrants perform equally well in the Consolation Prize ranking system, as outlined in the Consolation Prize rules below,
(together the “Tie Breaker Triggers”).
Upon either of the Tie Breaker Triggers occurring, the winner of the Tie Breaker will be the entrant whose selection was closest to the winning distance of the final race in the Round. When judging the closest selection for the winning distance, distances higher and lower than the actual winning distance will be considered equally.
Should more than one entrant select the closest winning distance in a Round where the Tie Breaker has come into effect (the “Tie Breaker Tied Entrants”), the prize will be split and shared equally between the Tie Breaker Tied Entrants.
If the final race is a Void Race (as defined below), an entrant's Tie Breaker answer for the winning distance, and the Tie Breaker itself, will be applied to the final race that is completed as part of the Round.
For the avoidance of doubt, if there is a dead heat between two or more horses in the final race, the winning distance will be deemed to be a “dead heat” (an option that is available to entrants as a Tie Breaker answer), and the Promoter shall not consider the distance between the winning horses and the next placed horse.
Should winning distance data not be available for the final race to the Promoter for any reason, the prize will be split and shared equally between the Jackpot or Consolation (as applicable) Tied Entrants.
For each Round there will be one prize publicised by the Promoter on the Entry Points and/or, for Broadcast Competitions only, publicised in the Programme as being the Jackpot or main prize (“Jackpot Prize”) for that Round. Unless otherwise displayed on the Entry Points or publicised in the Programme, the Jackpot Prize for Broadcast Competitions is £50,000. Unless otherwise displayed on the Entry Points, the Jackpot Prize for Non-Broadcast Competitions shall be £1,000. The Jackpot Prize will be won by the entrant who correctly picks the winning horse from each of the races in the Round. If more than one entrant picks all the winning horses (“Jackpot Tied Entrants”), the Tie Breaker question will come into effect. The Tie Breaker rules are explained at Paragraph 6.4 - 6.10 above.
If no entrant picks the winning horse in all races then the Jackpot Prize will not be awarded for that Round, and instead a consolation prize of £100 for a Non-Broadcast Competition or £1,000 for a Broadcast Competition (“Consolation Prize”) will be awarded to the entrant that performs the best in the ranking system set out at Paragraph 7.9 below. If two or more entrants perform equally as well as the best in the ranking system, (“Consolation Tied Entrants”), as set out in Paragraph 7.14 below, then the Tie Breaker will be used to determine a winner.
The Boosted Jackpot (as defined below) shall be available for specific Rounds of the Competition as announced on the Entry Points and/or for Broadcast Competitions only in the Programme.
The Promoter reserves the right to boost the Jackpot Prize, to an amount which shall be publicised on the Entry Points and/or for Broadcast Competitions only in the Programme (the “Boosted Jackpot”) for a Round where a specified horse wins a specified race in a Round selected for the applicable Competition (the “Jackpot Jumper”).
The Boosted Jackpot shall only be applied to specific Rounds of Competitions (as selected by the Promoter) and will not roll over to any other Rounds. The Jackpot Jumper horse and race will be selected by the Promoter and notice of the Boosted Jackpot and Jackpot Jumper will be provided at the Entry Points and/or for Broadcast Competitions only in the Programme, at least 24 hours before the opening time of each individual Round, where applicable.
If the Jackpot Jumper horse does not win the specified race from the applicable Round:
the Jackpot Prize will not be boosted; and
the same Consolation Prize shall apply whether or not the Jackpot Jumper horse wins the specified race. See the Consolation Prize rules below.
In the event that the Jackpot Jumper horse is a non-runner, the Jackpot Prize will not be boosted.
In the event that:
the race in which the Jackpot Jumper horse is due to race in is abandoned, postponed or not completed for any reason; or
the Jackpot Jumper horse wins the specified race in the Round; however, another race from the Round is abandoned, postponed or not completed for any reason,
then the Void Races rules apply (defined below at Paragraph 8).
In the event that no eligible entrant has selected seven correct Picks, a Consolation Prize will be awarded to the best performing entrant. The amount of the Consolation Prize is £1,000 for Broadcast Competitions and £100 for Non-Broadcast Competitions. The Consolation Prize will be awarded to the entrant who performs the best by ranking closest to 'Rank 1' in accordance with the following ranking system:
Rank Picks ('Places' are defined at Paragraph 7.10 below) 1 6 wins, 1 placed 2 6 wins, 0 placed, 1 unplaced 3 5 wins, 2 placed 4 5 wins, 1 placed, 1 unplaced 5 5 wins, 0 placed, 2 unplaced 6 4 wins, 3 placed 7 4 wins, 2 placed, 1 unplaced 8 4 wins, 1 placed, 2 unplaced 9 4 wins, 0 placed, 3 unplaced 10 3 wins, 4 placed 11 3 wins, 3 placed, 1 unplaced 12 3 wins, 2 placed, 2 unplaced 13 3 wins, 1 placed, 3 unplaced 14 3 wins, 0 placed, 4 unplaced
“Places” are determined in the following way:
4 or less: No places
5 - 7 Runners: Only 2nd place qualifies as “placed”
8 or more Runners: 2nd and 3rd place qualify as “placed”
4 or less: No places
5 - 7 Runners: Only 2nd place qualifies as “placed”
8 - 15 Runners: 2nd and 3rd place qualify as “placed”
16 or more Runners: 2nd, 3rd and 4th place qualify as “placed”
In the event that no entrant picks at least 3 winners then no Consolation Prize will be awarded.
If two or more entrants perform equally well as the best in the ranking system for a Round where a Consolation Prize is being awarded (“Consolation Tied Entrants”), then the Tie Breaker will come into effect.
In the event that there is a dead heat between two or more horses in any given race then the horses which are tied in the dead heat will each be treated as having won the race for the purposes of the Round.
Jackpot Jumper Boosted Jackpot:
If any of the seven races that form part of the Round are abandoned, postponed or not completed for any reason, or if a single winning horse is not officially identified for any of the seven races of a Competition, for any reason (other than a dead heat), the race will (at the Promoter's discretion) be considered void (“Void Races”).
If in any Round of the Competition, there is one Void Race then the Jackpot Prize will be £5,000 for Broadcast Competitions or £500 for Non-Broadcast Competitions. The Consolation Prize shall remain at £1,000 for Broadcast Competitions but no Consolation Prize shall be awarded for Non-Broadcast Competitions.
If in any Round of the Competition, there are two Void Races then the Jackpot Prize will be £1,000 for Broadcast Competitions or £250 for Non-Broadcast Competitions. No Consolation Prizes shall be awarded.
If in any Round of the Competition, there are three or more Void Races then the Round will be deemed cancelled and no prizes will be awarded.
Additional prizes may be introduced at the discretion of the Promoter. These will be in addition to the prizes outlined above. In the event that additional prizes are introduced, the Promoter will publish any additional terms and conditions as they may be applicable.

not able to verify their registration information to the satisfaction of the Promoter; or
found to have breached these Terms and Conditions by the Promoter;
then the entrant will be disqualified and the prize will be forfeited.
