You play a weekly card, covering sporting events Tuesday through the following Monday. The events come from NFL, NCAAF, NBA, NCAAM, MLB, MLS, NHL, NASCAR, PGA, Tennis (M & W), and MMA (M & W).
You pick a minimum of 10 events. You can pick up to 25 events each week. One credit per pick. You may play multiple cards for any given week.
For each event, you pick A)the winner (or a tie), and; B)the Over/Under for the event. See each Sport below for specific Over/Under scoring.
For any group, there are 4 pools available to win each week:
most correct Picks;
closest to a 0 differential, Over/Under;
Major Falls, which is the winning picks card and a winning Over/Under card, and;
the Grand Cascade, which is the winning picks and a perfect 0 Over/Under card.
The risk/strategy: the more picks you play, the better your chance of getting the most correct; but the harder it is to get a winning or perfect 0 Over/Under. The more cards you play, the better your chance of winning either the Picks or Over/Under on each card.
There will be a winner every week for the Picks and the Over/Under. The Cascade pools turn over every week until someone wins.
You can buy in to a card at anytime each week, but events that have started will be locked out. Once there are less than 10 events remaining open, the game is closed.
There are no refunds. Once you have purchased credits, they remain in your account until you play them.
For each event, correctly pick Winner or Tie between contestants.
The most correct picks wins the pool.
In the event there is more than one person with the top score, the pool prize goes to the earliest time-stamp. Every time a person places their picks, or edits their pick(s), their time-stamp is updated.
The Picks Pool is worth 58% of total credits played each week.
For each event you pick, guess the total Over/Under as posted at ESPN for the event.
The goal is to be closest to a “0” differential for all combined picks.
In the event there is more than one person with the closest differential, or 0, the pool prize goes to the earliest time-stamp. Every time a person places their pick(s), or edits their pick(s), their time-stamp is updated.
The Over/Under Pool is worth 28% of the total credits played each week.
The Cascade Pools are “communal”, each pool draws 2% of the total credits played each week by every group, public or private. They roll over every week until someone produces a winning Picks card and a winning or perfect Over/Under card from the same week.
A person with multiple cards can win a Cascade Pool; the games do not have to be from the same card, but must be from within one group, public or private, and by the same person winning on separate cards.
Cascade Pools are split evenly if there is more than one winner for either Major Falls or Grand Cascade.
