Join the tournament each day from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. AEST by selecting Online Play, picking Tournaments, and then clicking on Search by Code. Once there, you can enter the day’s tournament code:

08/07/2022: 2474-3266-5643
09/07/2022: 4054-0693-1499
10/07/2022: 3388-3493-8411

Voilà! You’re ready for the starting line!

Scores reset at the end of each day, so if you don’t win the first day, try again! But please remember, a single player may only claim one prize. For example, if a player finishes in the top 10 on the first day, and if that same player happens to land in the top ten during the remainder of the event, they will only be eligible for the top 10 prize once. Instead, the next eligible player on the leaderboard will be declared a winner for that tournament day. This way, everyone has a shot!
