FeaturesHow They Work

Bar default team, the game-changers below add some spice to competitions and are optional additions when creating a competition. Buy back and split pot are always available for inclusion, whereas only one of the remaining three can be selected in a competition. Features available in each game are clearly labelled.

Default Team

A default team is assigned to players in rounds where they haven’t made a selection before the selection deadline. You will be enforced the first team in descending alphabetical order that you haven’t yet selected. You may be lucky enough to get a winner, but make sure you meet deadlines to avoid the risk! A default team can be assigned to any player any number of times, and in any competition.

Buy Back Feature

Buy your way back into this competition if your team loses in the first round – you can pay your way back into round 2. The buy-back fee will always be higher than the entry fee and uses a formula that makes it fair for players who didn’t get knocked out. You must buy back in before the round 2 selection deadline is reached by clicking the button below the competition league table and any buy-back fees increase the winner’s cash prize.

Split Pot Feature

You can elect to split the pot at any time while you are entered in a competition. It will be activated only when all remaining players have simultaneously selected it and will result in the cash prize split evenly and the competition closing. You can change whether to opt in at any time outside of closed competition rounds by clicking the button below the competition league table.

Double Chance Feature

Double your chances of progression in one round of your choice – you can choose two teams and only need one to win. You won’t be able to use either selection again in the competition so you may want to save this for a more unpredictable round of fixtures.

Sympathy Loser Feature

Get a sympathy bye if your team gets thrashed – if your selection loses by three or more goals, you’ll automatically progress to the next round. This only works for the first time though. If your selection loses by three or more again, you’re out!

Draw No Lose Feature

Progress if your selection doesn’t lose in one round of your choice – you go through if your selections wins OR draws. As with double chance you may want to save this for a more unpredictable round of fixtures.
