Tiebreakers will continue to be run until there is a single winner remaining. In the event that there are no Draftstars contests prior to the Live Final to hold a tiebreaker, it will be at Draftstars discretion for how Golden Tickets will be allocated between those who tied for first place in the relevant Live Final Qualifier Contest. It the responsibility of all entrants to ensure that their contact details are up to date and correct.
