At the end of the games, each player share pays out based on final rankings. Think about where you expect a player to finish, and see the corresponding payout to know how much you should bid.
You can also click on any player image and bring up the ValuCalculator to view payouts based on each ranking and returns based on their current price.
View current points, projected points, and live price for each player. Below the live price is the “breakeven rank”, or the rank where this player would have to finish to pay out his live price.

When the event opens, users bid on players during the IPO (Initial Player Offering) phase. IPO prices update in real time, and IPO closes shortly before the games begin. When the IPO closes, shares are distributed to the highest bidders.
Just click on any player to place a bid!
Note you don’t need to invest all your chips during the IPO. You can keep some reserved to buy shares from other users once the event goes live.
Make sure you have notifications turned on so you can see when you are outbid for shares, or when another user accepts your trade offers!
Buy and sell shares of players with others in REAL TIME while the games are happening. In-game pricing is 100% driven by user activity. Prices update live based on new buy and sell offers, and recently completed trades. Trading is open until the end of the last game.
Once the games have ended and scoring is final, prices will update to final valuations based on player rankings. Users are then ranked by final chip count and paid out according to the Prizes tab.
The home screen has a list of all upcoming and live events.
There are two game formats:
Cash format. You can invest as much or as little cash as you want. Your profit or loss is determined by the change in value of the shares you own. Think like a poker cash game.
Tournament format. Buy in to the contest for a set entry fee, and every user receives the same number of chips to start. At the end of the contest, users are ranked by their number of chips, and paid out accordingly.
Before the games, bid on shares of your favorite players. You will be notified if you have an outstanding bid on a player and someone outbids you. There are a limited number of shares of each player, so more popular players will get expensive. 30 minutes prior to the first game, the IPO will close and shares are released to the highest bidders.
Share prices are determined in real-time by other users. Once the games start, you can buy and sell shares of any player. If you see a star player underperforming in the first half, maybe you want to try to buy low on that player and hope they turn it around in the second half. A backup player you own has an 80 yard touchdown? See if you can unload that player and lock in a profit, or let it ride and see how high he can climb in the rankings.
Player screens will show trading activity, on-field performance, and any news updates, so be sure to read up on your players!
When the contest ends, shares get paid out based on final rankings.
If the shares you own are worth more than what you paid, the you win money. If the shares are worth less, then you lose money. It’s that simple!
If you are in a Contest format, top places are paid out based on the number of chips.
