HOW TO PLAY

  • GridKings is modeled on a classic American football pool.
  • A live event is selected. Typically, this is a sporting event.
  • A 10 x 10 grid is created.
  • Teams are automatically assigned to the top or right side of grid.
  • Each row and column represents a number. What that number means can vary. Typically, these are tied to score.
  • Players buy on or more squares on the grid. This money is sent to the host and pooled together.
  • Each square is a chance to win some (or all) of that money back.
  • Numbers will be automatically assigned at random when all squares have been sold.
  • Each square now has a number from each team.
  • The teams’ scores dictate which square is selected.
  • At set intervals, if your square is selected, you win.
  • Winners are paid out from the money pool.
  • It’s possible for a square to win more than once!
  • GridKings can be used for other sports and with other rules!
