All registered members are entitled to take part in these tournaments.
How do the tournaments work?
The tournaments can be based on any subject or topic within any of the game formats. The results of the tournament are determined by the number of questions answered correctly and the time in which they are answered. The results are, therefore, directly based on the competitor’s knowledge.
You will not be provided with the answers until the tournament has ended.
Spaces within the tournaments are not limited and you can enter as many times as you like but it will be your highest score that will be accounted for.
The time needed until a Cash tournament closes varies from game to game and with the size and entry cost of the tournament.
The size of the entry cost in a Cash tournament will vary from tournament to tournament. Use the tournament listing for each game to select a tournament that matches your preferences. We require that there are at least 2 different players in a specific tournament, so that you will always face another player and not just compete against yourself. You can join the same tournament more than one time if you wish if it has more than 2 slots, but only your highest score will count.
Your entry cost for a Cash tournament comprises of two elements; Firstly, approximately 70% of the entry cost is your stake for that particular tournament. Secondly, the remaining 30% of the entry cost comprises our fees for providing the facilities for playing the game. We charge this fee to be able to guarantee you the best possible quality and game experience.
Details of this information alongside the specific instructions for each tournament will always be provided.
