How much XP will I be allowed to use each event?

You will be given 100xp for each fight, along with 500xp to spread over any fights per event.

How do I earn XP?

You earn XP through correctly predicting fights. How much XP you gain depends on the odds of your pick. In addition, you gain XP through scoring rounds promptly after they end.

What are the Ranks and Belt icons beside my name?

As you earn XP they will advance and earn higher ranking belt level and stripes similar to the BJJ belt system. The belt color ranking are ordered from lowest to highest below:

  • White Belt (+4 stripes)
  • Blue Belt (+4 stripes)
  • Purple Belt (+4 stripes)
  • Brown Belt (+4 stripes)
  • Black Belt (+10 degrees)

What happens to my picks if a fighter pulls out and the fight is changed?

In the event a fight is changed, such as fighter 1 is now fighting a different fighter 2 (or vice-versa). The picks for that particular fight will be reset and you will have to enter a new pick. Remember to enable your push notifications so we can inform you when a new fight gets added.

What happens when there's a point deduction?

Score the round as you see it and we'll deduct the point for you. For example, if you thought Conor McGregor won a round 10-9 against Nate Diaz but McGregor was deducted a point, score the round 10-9 for McGregor and we'll deduct the point making the round a 9-9.

What happens in the case of a draw or no-contest?

In the case of a draw or no-contest no XP is rewarded.

How are the odds made?

The odds are calculated in real-time based on how many fans pick a particular outcome.

Example

If 60% of fans have Fighter 1 to win and 40% Fighter 2 to win, the odds are 1.6x and 2.5x respectively. In addition, if 25% of fans have Fighter 1 to win by KO/TKO, 25% for by Submission and 50% by Decision, then the odds are 4x, 4x and 2x respectively for Fighter 1.

Why can't I withdraw my full balance?

On the withdrawal screen you can see your withdraw-able balance at the top. It may differ from your actual balance.

The reason being that by default you are only able to withdraw your winnings from Verdict Tournaments. You are not by default able to withdraw newly deposited funds. If you've made a mistake, that's okay, the support team will help you get back your newly deposited funds. We understand that this happens.

We don't allow players to withdraw newly deposited funds because it makes it easier for bad actors to use our system for Money Laundering, specifically layering. You can read more about this over here.

Why was my account frozen?

Your account can be frozen for a few issues. It can occasionally be a mistake from our automated systems. In this case, there's no need to worry. Our Customer Support team can help you out at [email protected]

Regulators require us to ensure that we know our userbase. Our systems go through periodic scans to prevent fraud and bad actors from using our systems. These scans and checks are implemented to ultimately protect our players at the end of the day. We prefer to implement a system that has slightly more false positives than having bad actors slip through the cracks.

What is a discontinued entry?

To prevent your entry from discontinuing join a Guaranteed or Featured Tournament. A Guaranteed or Featured Tournament will continue no matter how many people join and the prizes remain the same. Your entry will discontinue if a Tournament doesn't reach it's required fill level. For example, a 1 on 1 will not continue with 1 player because there is no one else to play against.

Why can't I participate in Verdict Tournaments?

Verdict Tournaments is only available in particular regions.

If you are within a legal region but are receiving messaging around being in an illegal region, contact [email protected] and we'll quickly help you out.

Why do I have to go through multiple steps before withdrawing my money?

You have to go through multiple steps before withdrawing your money for security purposes. We need to make sure that you are who you say you are so the money doesn't go to anyone else. Verifying your identity through these steps will ensure that the funds are going to the right person. Government regulators and payment processors require us to implement these additional steps for your security.

What is a Co-Main / Main Only Tournament?

These are Tournaments that only require two picks for the Co-Main and Main Events. They can be joined before the Co-Main Event starts, which means they can be entered even while some fights on the Main Card are going on.

Why do the Android and iOS apps need location permissions?

We take your privacy seriously. We will never sell or share your location data. We don't store your location data unless absolutely necessary.

We need to ensure that you're located in the state or province that you've indicated. We're obligated by law to verify your identity and that begins by verifying your location. This will ensure that our players are indeed from the geographies that we operate within.

In some regions, we're required to ensure that you're not within a very well defined area. For example, within Arizona, United States, we need to ensure that you're not within the vicinity of a golf course and casino that has been exempt from daily fantasy sports. This is required by our license within Arizona, United States. This means we need to verify your location when taking any game related action within the app like depositing, withdrawing, joining, updating, or leaving a Tournament.
