1. About Us
The Website offers to its Users a gaming and tournament platform wherein they may participate in any of the available games. Registration on the Website is absolutely free and gamers can create and play games as well as tournaments. The Website does not charge any User for creating or playing any games or tournaments, however, Users creating the game or tournament may fix a registration fee for other Users. The User winning the game or tournament shall walk away with Eighty Five (85) % of the total registration fee and the Website shall be entitled to retain the remaining amounts.
The Website provides users with a range of different games to choose from. Part of our goal in creating the Website was to provide a platform that would be as flexible as gaming is itself. The different types of games/tournaments a User can participate in are fourfold:
- Sit & Go games or tournaments - In this, Users will create two teams of equal numbers and play against each other. The game can either be in a single game format or in a multi game format (tournaments). The winner of the single game or tournament shall walk away with the winnings.
- 1 vs 1 - Like the team games and tournaments, individuals can challenge one another either in a single game or in a tournament format. Challenges can be made on most social media websites with Users getting special bragging rights. The results of these matches can be published on the Websites affiliated social media sites.
- Multi-day Tournaments - These tournaments will include a larger number of players and will be scheduled every week. Some of these tournaments may take place only once whereas other tournaments may be repeated. These tournaments shall take place over the course of 2-3 days. While some of these tournaments will be completely free and still have prizes, others will have registration fees and even bigger cash prizes for the winners.
- Every Day Scheduled Tournaments - These tournaments will be smaller and shorter than the multi-day tournaments. The tournaments will be short enough to be completed in a single day.
