Each Participant may only compete once in each day of the Contest Period. Signing up for a Viber account and subscription to the Prayer Bot each are free of charge.
The Contest shall consist of daily trivia challenges presented in the Prayer Bot (each a “Daily Challenge”).
The terms and conditions set forth in the PA, PC, Bot and Community Terms and Guidelines available at https://www.viber.com/terms/chat-public-accounts-terms-guidelines/, as amended from time to time, shall apply to the Prayer Bot and any engagement therewith.

Any attempt by a Participant to obtain more than the allowable entries by using multiple/different Viber accounts, email addresses, identities or any other methods will void all of such Participant’s entries. Sponsor reserves the right to verify the eligibility of all Participants. Illegible and/or incomplete entries and entries submitted by Participants who do not meet the eligibility requirements are void.
Upon joining the ‘Viber Contest to Answer Ramadan Quiz 2019’, through one of the different channels available, you will be redirected to the Prayer Bot, therein you will need to subscribe to the Prayer Bot and choose whether you want to participate in the trivia challenge and share the results with friends only, or also take part in the Contest and win prizes. In order to participate in the Contest, you will have to click ‘Yes I agree’, approve these Official Rules and play according to them. Clicking ‘Yes I agree’ will be considered an “entry” and is subject to these Official Rules. By clicking ‘Yes I agree’ you will be considered a “Participant” in the Contest. By clicking ‘No’ you will not be able to answer any questions and enter or participate through the entire Contest.
During the Contest Period, Viber will send to all Viber users that have subscribed to the Prayer Bot a reminder before the publication of the applicable Daily Challenge, and such users will be offered to answer the 3 questions presented in such Daily Challenge in the shortest time (each: a “Question”). Each Daily Challenge will have four (4) optional answers shown, only one of which will be correct. In no instance shall the time for answering a Daily Challenge exceed twenty-four (24) hours from the publication of such Daily Challenge in the Prayer Bot. Sponsor reserves the right to stop accepting entries, at any time, for each Daily Challenge and/or the entire Contest, in its sole discretion.
A Viber user is only able to answer one Daily Challenge per day, and the score earned for answering the questions of the Daily Challenge will be added to the total score of such Participant.
5. Winner Selection and Notification.
500 Participants who gained the maximum score for answering correctly to the Questions presented in the Daily Challenges during the Contest in the shortest amount of time, will be chosen by Sponsor or its designee as Prize (as defined below) winners (each, a “Prize Winner”). Prize Winners will be contacted via the Prayer Bot by a direct message within seven (7) business days from the publication on Viber of the last Daily Challenge (the “Prize Notification”). Each Participant is eligible to win only one (1) Prize. Sponsor may add more Questions, Daily Challenges, and/or Prize opportunities for Participants as part of the Contest, or alter any of the foregoing at any time, in its sole discretion.
Sponsor reserves the right to verify the eligibility of all Participants. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting an entry, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the person in whose name the Viber account is registered on the date the entry is submitted, but only if that person meets all other eligibility criteria, otherwise the entry may be disqualified and any potential Prize won will be forfeited in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Prize Winner may be required to provide Sponsor with proof that he/she is the registered account holder of the Viber account associated with the potentially winning entry. If a dispute cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the entry will be deemed ineligible.
The prize for winning the Contest (the “Prize”) will be free Viber Out credit in amount of USD 5 for each Prize Winner.
Any portion of the Prize not accepted or unclaimed for and/or unused by the Prize Winner will be forfeited and will not be substituted. No portion of a Prize may be transferred, redeemed for cash, or substituted, except by Sponsor (in its sole discretion), which reserves the right to substitute any portion of any Prize with a prize of equal or greater value for any reason, including, without limitation, Prize unavailability. The Prize, and all elements thereof, are subject to availability. The Prize is awarded “AS IS” and WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, express or implied (including, without limitation any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose). Acceptance, participation in and/or use of a Prize is at Prize Winner’s sole risk and the Released Parties (defined below) are not responsible for any damages whatsoever including special, indirect, or consequential damages, arising out of or in connection with the use and/or misuse of such respective Prize. Without limitation to the foregoing, any delays or other issues causing Prize Winner to miss any part of the Prize (regardless of whether Prize Winner is at fault) or the cancellation of all or a portion of the Prize for any reason, will not result in a substitute Prize being awarded.
Prize Winner will be solely responsible for all applicable taxes and fees and other expenses or costs associated with his/her Prize receipt and/or use that are not expressly included in the Prize description. Failure to take or complete any portion of the Prize does not relieve the Prize Winner of his/her tax obligations associated with winning the Prize.
