After you join, you are required to pay and if your entry isn't paid by puck drop on the first day of the contest, you will be removed, no questions asked. Registration will be open until October 31st and those wanting to join after the season starts will be required to pay first before joining.

There are two ways to pay for your entry:

 1). Send a Canadian email money transfer to sherwood888@gmail.com for exactly 137.51

A password is not required to send.

137.51 CAD = $100.00 USD.


2) Send a $100 PAYPAL payment to bushay44@yahoo.com so that he receives exactly $100 U.S. Dollars. Make sure you use the option of “sending money to family or friends”. 


In the notes when sending payment, please include the USERNAME you used when joining. That's all you need to put in the notes. Just your username and nothing else.


3). Once requested, you will be sent a link to join (you can also copy and paste it into your browser) and you will be guided through the process for joining this pool, including registering on the website if you need to.

Here are the rules:

1). You must make EXACTLY 200 picks, (no more, no less) to qualify for a prize. If you make less than 200 plays, you will not qualify. Once you reach 200 plays, your season is over no matter how long is left in the season.  

2). This contest will deal with LIVE LINES at COVERS and will include sides and totals. The contest will start on Monday, October 7 and end on Monday March 30, which is not the last day of the season so make sure your 200 plays are in by March 30. As per COVERS rules, which we have no control over, the season must start on a MONDAY and end on a MONDAY.

PLEASE NOTE: Your name will not appear in the standings until you make at least one play. Once you have made your first play, your name will appear and every wager placed will automatically be for 100 units. 

3). There are no minimum or maximum plays per week, day or month. You need 200 plays and it is up to you how to distribute those 200 plays. Pushes will not count as plays. In other words, if you pick a total under or over 6 and it lands on 6, it will not count towards your 200 plays. This is important to note because if you have 199 plays on the last day of the contest and you choose a total that pushes, you will end up with 199 plays and not qualify for a prize.

4). If a game is not played within 24 hours of scheduled time or at original venue listed, then selection is not counted.

5). Deadline for each game will be puck drop.

6). In the event of a tie in the standings, prize money will be split evenly between the tied teams. There will be no tie-breakers.

7). Standard Las Vegas rules apply on suspended games and any other situations that aren't covered here.

8). Order of finish will be determined by units won.

9). Plays made the last day of the contest may be hidden to ensure fairness.

10). In the event of the site being down, which is extremely rare but it could happen, you will not be able to make plays until the issue is fixed and site is running again.   

11). Multiple entries are not allowed

12). The standings and all picks will be displayed at all times and will always be accessible at covers.com We also attempt to update standing weekly at this website here: https://www.sportswagers.ca/fantasy_hockey/ 

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE and have a great year. 

We are expecting a prize pool of around $5000.00 or 50 players. 

The great thing about participating is that for a small investment, it keeps you engaged all season long and you also have a great chance at a large payout.
