Any Jouster who wins a regular solo contest in ANY sport the previous 7 days prior to the start of the contest is eligible to enter the next Solo Survivor Tournament (SST) on the specified start date. Each SST will have its own specified start date, typically every Tuesday. Designated SST solo contest wins that are part of an SST do not count towards eligibility for the next SST. Only regular Solo Contest wins will qualify a Jouster for the next SST.
Jousters need to be logged into the Daily Joust site to be able to enter SST solo contests from the Open Contest page or URL links.There will be three designated SST solo contests in MLB offered each day:
$5 entry fee to win $9 prize
$11 entry fee to win $20 prize
$22 entry fee to win $40 prize
Eligible Jousters can enter one, two or all three of these designated SST solo contests in a given day. If the Jouster wins any of these SST solo contests in a day, he wins the Solo Contest prize and survives in the tournament and is eligible to compete for the SST prize the following day.
SST Solo Contests will be specially designated on the Open Contest page and only those Jousters eligible for entry will be considered for a valid entry.
Each SST continues until either:
a. Only one Jouster is still eligible to play in the current SST, and has won at least one SST solo contest each of the previous 4 days. In this case that Jouster wins the SST prize, gets an SST winner badge, and a seat at the $15,000 MLB Super Joust III.
b. No Jousters remain eligible to enter, but Jousters have previously won at least one SST solo contest in 4 previous days of the current SST. In this case the last remaining Jousters (those who participated in the final day before losing) equally split the SST prize and each get an SST winner badge. Only the Jouster with the highest score on the final day (using Daily Joust tie-breaker rules) gets an entry into the $15k Super Joust III.
c. No Jousters remain eligible to enter, and no Jousters have won at least one SST solo contest each of the previous 4 days In this case the SST prize rolls over to the next SST. The prize pool for the next SST will be equal to the prior SST prize plus an additional $250.
When there is a single winner of an SST, that winner will also be awarded a seat at the $15,000 MLB Super Joust III Survivor Week - where $15K and two tickets to the World Series are on the line ! If there are multiple winners of an SST, only the Jouster with the highest score (using Daily Joust tie-breaker rules) on the final day will be awarded an MLB Super Joust III seat.
