Should two or more players be tied on the same points total at the end of the promotion there will be a number of criteria taken into consideration. Whichever player has played the most $5,000 freerolls out of those on identical points will be deemed the victor. Should the players still be tied after this consideration the player with the highest number of first place finishes will be deemed the victor. Again, if this fails to separate the players the player with the highest number of second place finishes, then third, fourth etc until the players are separated will be deemed the victor.
