USFantasy Scoring and Calculations Rules

 USFantasy Sports Scoring Rules

In each contest event, athletes are awarded Fantasy points according to their in-game performance. The Fantasy points awarded to each athlete are dictated by the rules for that particular contest event.   The athlete with the most Fantasy points is declared the winner at the conclusion of the event. The athlete with the second most points is declared the 2nd place finisher, third most points is declared the 3rd place finisher, and fourth place finisher is declared the 4th place finisher.

Contest Terms

USFantasy Sports offers contests for multiple professional sports, generally taking place on a single day, week, or another predetermined time period.

Each of the wagering pool options (Win, Place, Show, Exacta, etc.) in a contest event will be graded individually and will have their own payoff odds.

Contest results and winners will be based on the total points scored from each athlete in the contest field. Each sport has its own unique scoring system described in detail below.

Contests will be based on a minimum of two separate sporting events and a minimum of 3 players per contest field. If a contest athlete is declared inactive, or does not appear in the contest’s scheduled events due to injury, weather cancellation, trade, coaches’ decision, demotion, or any other reason, the athlete will be “scratched” from the contest and wagers on this athlete will be refunded. With regards to wagers on a scratched athlete in the PICK-7 pool, contest entrants will receive the wagering favorite in the WIN pool for the contest in which the athlete is scratched.

In the event that athletes tie in their performance scores, a tiebreaker will be used to determine the winner. If the athletes’ performance scores remain tied after employing the tiebreaker, the pools will be divided by the calculation rules stated in NV Gaming Regulation 26.220, listed below.

POSITION ELIGIBILITY

When a contest is limited by players of a particular positions, the players will be assigned to the position they play most often and are determined at the sole discretion of USFantasy Sports.

PLAYER ODDS

Player odds are a function of the number of dollars wagered in the contest and how those dollars are spread throughout the number of athletes available in the contest. These “Odds Against Winning” will be reflected as a function of the Win selection odds along with pool totals that will be visibly displayed on monitors, odds boards, or computer screens.

Notification

A list of athletes for each contest and date may be obtained by writing to: USFantasy Sports: Attn: General Manager 107 East Warm Springs Road, Las Vegas, NV 89119. Inquiries can also be made on the “Contact Us” page of our website at www.usfantasy.com.

ROSTER DEADLINES

TICKET CANCELLATIONS

Ticket cancellations are possible at the discretion of USFantasy. Wagers made through Account Wagering systems will not be eligible for cancellation.

CONTEST GUARANTEES.

All contests will run without a minimum entry or prize pool requirement.   All contests will be guaranteed for the minimum payout amounts posted when the wagering period for the contest ends.

RESULTS & PAYOUTS

USFantasy Sports will wait until final box scores of USFantasy’s sports data supplier as well as an additional independent source have been reported for each contest's games in order to verify the final results. Our statistics providers may occasionally make revisions to final box scores correcting statistics published during live games. In those cases, results will be based on final box scores, posted shortly after live game conclusions.   If revisions are made after the final box scores are published, scoring will not be reversed or changed. Contests will not be based on performances where relevant statistical information on the corresponding sporting events is not generally available through traditional media sources. After each contest ends, the winning results are published, generally no later than 30 minutes after the final game in a contest is completed.

All winning tickets are valid for 120 days after the date of resulting.

All winning tickets must be cashed at the sportsbook in which it was purchased.

Winnings are taxed in accordance with IRS requirements. Any single winning payout that pays 300 times the amount wagered and at least $600 is taxable income. If winnings minus the amount wagered exceed $5,000, federal taxes are withheld.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION

All disputes will be resolved by the final decision of the USFantasy General Management and may be appealed to the Nevada Gaming Control Board.

CANCELLED CONTESTS

A contest may be cancelled and all wagers refunded if the minimum number of athletes and events are cancelled or postponed. The following must be met for a valid contest: Contests must be based on a minimum of two separate sporting events and a minimum of 3 players per contest field. USFantasy Sports also reserves that right to cancel contests at our discretion, without any restrictions allowable by Nevada State Gaming regulations and guidelines. IF inaccurate start times result in contest entry submissions after the start of the sporting event(s), a cancellation may occur because of the potential impact on the integrity of the contest.

POSTPONEMENTS

In the event that a scheduled game is cancelled, preempted, or postponed beyond the originally scheduled contest date. For any reason, after the start of the contest that includes such cancelled, preempted or postponed games, the selected athletes from those contests will be scratched from the contest and wagers will be refunded on those athletes according to the conditions listed under the Contest Terms.

SUSPENDED OR SHORTENED GAMES

USFantasy uses official statistics as provided by Sportradar and includes all games that the sports league deems to be official and complete. If the league declares a game "suspended," then the statistics that are generated the day the game is originally scheduled will be used. Any statistics generated on a later date when the game is completed will not be included due to the timely nature of our contests.

Athletes involved any game that is postponed to a day that is other than the originally scheduled start date, will not be considered and wagers on these athletes will be refunded.

  1. Place pool (second place).
    (a) The payoff amount per dollar wagered, which shall include the gross dollar wagered upon the winning entrant to place, shall be determined by dividing the gross amount wagered upon the winner to place into the sum of: the gross amount wagered upon the winner to place, plus one half of the difference between the net pool for place and the combined sum wagered on the winning and placing entrants to place.
    (b) The payoff amount per dollar wagered, which shall include the gross dollar wagered upon the placing entrant to place, shall be determined by dividing the gross amount wagered upon the placing entrant to place into the sum of: the gross amount wagered upon the placing entrant to place, plus one-half of the difference between the net pool for place and the combined sum wagered on the winning and placing entrants to place.
    (c) In the event of a tie for place, one-half of the profits of the place pool shall be paid upon the winner, and the remaining one-half prorated equally among the entrants constituting the tie.
  1. Show pool (third place).
    (a) The payoff amount per dollar wagered, which shall include the gross dollar wagered upon the winning entrant to show, shall be determined by dividing the gross amount wagered upon such winning entrant to show into the sum of: the gross amount wagered on the winning entrant to show, plus one-third of the difference between the net pool for show and the combined sums wagered on the entrants which placed first, second, and third to show.
    (b) The payoff amount per dollar wagered, which shall include the gross dollar wagered upon the second place entrant to show, shall be determined by dividing the gross amount wagered upon such entrant to show into the sum of: the gross amount wagered on the second place entrant to show, plus one-third of the difference between the net pool for show and the combined sums wagered on the entrants which placed first, second and third to show.
    (c) The payoff amount per dollar wagered, which shall include the gross dollar wagered upon the third place entrant to show, shall be determined by dividing the gross amount wagered upon such entrant to show into the sum of: the gross amount wagered on the third place entrant to show, plus one-third of the difference between the net pool for show and the combined sums wagered on the entrants which placed first, second and third to show.
    (d) In the event of a tie for show, one-third each of the profits of the show pool shall be paid upon the entrants placing first and second, and the remaining one-third prorated equally among the entrants constituting the tie.
