Gametypes

We offer three types of pool: the Classic pool, the Fantasy pool and the Last Longest pool. Each pool is available in different Table-sizes and Stakes.

Classic Pools

Classic Pools consist of answering some simple questions about an Event in which players must predict certain key oucomes of that Event. Points are awarded for correct predictions or, in “Nearest Wins” questions, for the predictions closest to the outcome. At the end of the Event, the Net Prizefund is distributed to those who scored the most points in the Pool. The split of the Prizefund depends on the number of entries in the Pool. See Payout Structure.

Fantasy Pools

Fantasy Pools require the player to make a number of selections from those available to represent you in an Event (or series of events) with each selection contributing points to your total score in the Pool depending on their performance. For instance, a 5-a-side Football Fantasy Pool requires you to pick a Goalkeeper, a Defender, 2 Midfielders and a Striker each of which scores you points for certain achievements during the relevant match/matches such as goals, assists or cards. At the end of the relevant Event(s) or, if applicable, when one or more Users has achieved the Target Score required to win the Pool, the Net Prizefund is distributed among the Winner(s). See Payout Structure.

Last Longest Pools

In Last Longest Pools, the player who lasts longer than all the others is the one who wins the Net Prizefund. Poolsters are asked to make a selection in each of a series of fixtures (such as a team to win in each week of the Premier League). If the player makes a correct selection, i.e. their chosen team wins that week, then they progress, and if they make an incorrect selection, i.e. their chosen team fails to win that week, then they are knocked out. Successful players in each round must then make a new selection for the next set of fixtures. If you don't, you'll be excluded from the pool. As poolsters are knocked out, the field gradually narrows down until just one remains who has made a winning selection every time. Poolsters may only choose a selection once. If all remaining entrants are knocked out in the same round, or the Event reaches the End Date with more than one remaining poolster, the Net Prizefund will be shared between them. See Payout Structure. 

In Last Longest “Streak” pools, designated with a “£1M” symbol in the pools lobby, the jackpot bonus is won by selecting the required number of successful picks in a row in each round of the  pool. For instance, in Premier League Last Longest pools, players are required to pick a different team to win for 20 weeks in a row to win the jackpot bonus.
