Contest Types
We offer these Contest Types:

Guaranteed - a contest with more than 3 players and a guaranteed prize pool. Prize tiers are pre-set and made known in advance, with the top finishers receiving prizes.

Double Up - finish in the top half to win double your money.

Head-to-Head (H2H) - compete against a single opponent, winner takes all.

Challenge - issue a challenge to friends or other users and compete against them in an H2H, winner takes all contest.
Game Types
Our games are broken down into two different types:

Best Bets - Make a pre-set number of picks from a list of options. The more you're correct, the more points you get.

Ex. Make 10 picks from the option of 25 available.

All Props - Make picks for the entire list of options. The more you're correct, the more points you get.

Ex. Make all 25 picks from the list of 25 available options.
Make Your Picks
Each contest gives you opportunities to make predictions about player performances from a predetermined list.

  • Select the Players Props you want to include in your lineup

  • Select either 'Over' or 'Under' prediction on whether an individual player will over-perform or under-perform the value shown.
Ex. "Will Tom Brady throw more or less than 2.5 touchdowns?" If you think he will have more than 2.5 touchdowns then you would bet the "OVER".

  • Choose your 'SUBS'. Once all required picks have been made, the SUBS system will require you to choose a specified list of substitute players and predictions that will replace the main lineup if any of the players are injured or otherwise unable to perform. This will automatically update your roster to replace any player that doesn't play for any unforeseen circumstances.

Watch and Win!
Real-time updates will let you know at any time exactly where you stand across all of your contests.

  • Follow the action and compare your lineup to others in the contest and watch as you accumulate points during the games.
