- Guaranteed (G): These are events with fixed cash prizes. Regardless of the number of participants, the pot money will be granted once the matches are finished.
- Non-Guaranteed (N): The game needs a minimum number of participants to meet the cash prize. When players are not enough, the entry fee and all payments will be refunded.
- Pool (P): These games are highly dependent on the number of players. The prize pool will continue to increase as more players join the game!
Punters also know how many players can win in the contest and how many have joined it. A single set of picks can be used for multiple or all available contests. Previous predictions are automatically saved so you can freely use them for future contests!
Using the indicated information, choose the contest that appeals more to your betting style and experience.

6. Track your progress in the History section
After you’ve finalized your picks and contests, the results of the match will decide the points that you win. Your points can be easily computed in the History section.
7. Win the biggest points and cash out for money
Rack up more points by joining more contests and scoring points on your picks! When all the matches are done, the players with the most number of points will win generous prizes!
As defined by the rules, here is how the scoring system and gameplay powerups decide your points.
- Default (No Powerup): A winning pick will grant 10 points to the gambler while a losing bet will cost him 4 points.
- 2x Doubler: Bold risks come with great prizes if you succeed or a big price if you fail. A single correct prediction will warrant 20 points. On the other hand, a wrong pick can decrease 8 points from the player.
- No-Negatives: Wager with no losses with this powerup! If your pick turns out wrong, no points will be subtracted from your total points!
