Payout Structure

Payout Structures

The Payout Structure varies for each pool-type and pool-size.

and is determined byt the number of entrants in a pool and it's structure (ie Unlimited, Limited, 10 Max, Heads-up etc). Our "standard" payout structure for unlimited pools adds prizes as more entries are made and is described in more detail below. Some "special" pools will have a different Payout Structure applied and this will normally be announced in the Pool Rules. Prizes for each positon in the pool will be displayed in the pool header but please note that these are subject to change as more players enter the pool and more prizes added.

 

If two or more players tie for a position, the relevant Prizes are added together and divided by the number of those tied to calculate the amount awarded to each tying player.

The amount of the Prize will be added to a player's account balance immediately after a pool has settled. Prizes will be rounded to the nearest penny.

 

Classic and Fantasy Unlimited Pools (unless otherwise stated)

In Classic and Fantasy unlimited pools:

  • for pools up to 9 entries, there will be only one Prize, 1st Prize, which will receive 100% of the Net Prizefund
  • for pools with 10 or more entries, additional prizes will be added each time the number of entrants increases past a multiple of ten (1 additional prize) up to 30 players, then 15 (1 additional prize) up to 60 players, then 20 (1 additional prize) up to 100 players, then 25 (1 additional prize) and 2 additional prizes for every 50 players added.
  •  the Net Prizefund will be split between the Prizes so that second Prize is approximately 50% of first Prize, third Prize will be approximately 50% of second Prize and smaller prizes will step down in smaller increments.
  • Unless otherwise stated this is the Standard Payout Structure applicable for all Unlimited Classic and Fantasy Pools.

Fantasy Pools with target score

  • for pools that require players to reach a Target Score to win the pool 100% of the pool will go to the winner(s).

Classic and Fantasy 10 Max Pools

  • for pools with 10 entries 66.7% of the Net Prizefund will be paid to the winner of each pool and 33.3% will be paid to the runner-up in each pool.
  • Pools with fewer entries will only pay one prize to 1st place.

Classic and Fantasy Heads Up Pools

  • 100% of the net Prizefund will be paid to the winner of the pool.

Last Longest Pools

  • 100% of the Net Prizefund always goes to the player(s) who last(s) longest. Please note that, in order to qualify to share in the Prizefund, players must have a selection if they have one available (unless no other players remaining in the pool have any possible selections remaining either).

 

If two or more players tie for a position, the relevant Prizes are added together and divided by the number of tied players to calculate the amount awarded to each one.

Prizes will be rounded to the nearest penny.
