Should two or more members choose the exact price, the person who entered his/her PTP amount FIRST will be declared the winner of the contest. In the event that no one picks the exact, final price, 50 free TCredits is awarded to the person whose prediction was the closest without going over. In the event of a tie, the 50 free TCredits prize will be awarded to the member who posted his/her prediction first.
