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!
