The Champions of the Undead Promotion
These terms and conditions (the Terms) apply to the Champions of the Undead promotion (the Promotion) and will prevail in the event of any conflict or inconsistency with any other communications, including online or in-venue advertising or promotional materials relating to the Promotion, as well as the Terms of Service. Information on prizes and how to enter forms part of these Terms.
The Promoter is Zero Latency Pty Ltd, ABN 71 168 651 885, (Zero Latency) 5 Harper Street, Abbotsford, VIC, 3067, Australia
The Promotion will be open from AEST 12pm 10th August 2023 and will close at AEST 11pm 6th September 2023 (the Promotional Period).
Entry Criteria & Mechanic
Entry into the Promotion is open to all persons over the age of 18 years who, during the Promotional Period play Undead Arena at one of the Zero Latency VR venues listed here excluding Italy, Japan and currently Arizona within the United States of America (pending application approval from the Arizona Attorney-General's office), each location is a Participating Venue and each eligible player an Entrant.
This Promotion is a game of skill; chance plays no part in determining the winners.
Former and current directors, management, employees, officers and contractors (and their immediate families) of the Promoter or of the agencies or organisations associated with this Promotion are ineligible to enter. “Immediate families” means spouse, parent, natural or adopted child, and sibling (whether natural or adopted by a parent), whether or not they live in the same household as the director, manager, employee, officer or contractor.
Entrants may enter more than once during the Promotional Period. By satisfying the above entry criteria, each Entrant is considered to have accepted these Terms.
The Promotion, including determination of the winners, is based on scores achieved during gameplay. Gameplay requires each Entrant to kill zombies using a range of weapon types and points will be awarded based on how each zombie is killed, for example a standard kill (100 points), headshot kill (150 points), assisted kill (25 points) and by using the fire traps (100 points).
Separate leader boards will be maintained, grouped by the following regions, with each Entrants’ score being automatically recorded according to the region in which they play:
- Europe & Middle East (covering Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Kuwait, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, Ireland)
- Americas (covering USA, Canada, Mexico, French Guiana); and
- Asia Pacific (covering Australia, India, New Zealand, Singapore)
The highest scoring Entrant in each region (each a “Finalist”) will be flown to the Zero Latency Las Vegas Venue (“Grand Final Venue”) to compete in the grand final on 5th October 2023. For the avoidance of doubt, there will be three (3) Finalists in total – one from each region. Each of the 3 Finalists will be notified by 5pm AEST on Thursday 7th September 2023 via email or phone (to the email address or phone number provided when logging in to play at the relevant Participating Venue) that they are a regional winner and are invited to take part in the grand final and bring one (1) companion. Each Finalist must respond to this email within 7 days to confirm their participation in the grand final. Failure to respond within this timeframe will forfeit participating and the next highest scorer in the relevant region will be invited to play.
The full names of all 3 Finalists will also be published on the Promoter’s social media channels by Wednesday 13th September.
The following costs will be covered to all 3 Finalists in order to participate in the Las Vegas Venue:
- Economy class flights up to the value of $2,200 USD per person, flights will be booked by Zero Latency’s travel agent from the finalists’ respective closest international airports. Travel to/from each Finalists’ respective international airports is not included;
- One (1) double room accommodation for the finalist and companion, for 2 nights up to the value of $500 USD per night, at the MGM Grand Hotel Las Vegas.
- Travel and transports (including ground transfers) to the value of $150 USD and paid via a one off Uber Gift Card.
- Travel insurance for up to one (1) week for each finalist and their respective companion up to the value of $500 USD per person.
The Finalists will play three games of a ‘hard mode’ version of the Champions of the Undead together at a time to be nominated by the Promoter, on 5 October 2023. This ‘hard mode’ version will include even more zombies than the regular game, and will therefore be even more of a challenge. If any Finalist is unable to attend the nominated grand final destination or date, the invite will be forfeited to the next highest scorer in the relevant region. The date and time may be changed by the Promoter in the event that circumstances arise which are outside of its control.
The Finalist with the highest score at the grand final (i.e. the score achieved on 5th October only and not the cumulative score from previous gameplay) will be the overall winner and will receive $15,000 USD, to be paid via bank transfer in their local currency based on mid market conversion rates on the day of payment by the Promoter.
