Cash Game

A common term used for describing contests in which the prize pool is divided in half and is awarded to the winners. Typically a 1-1 ROI. Cash Games consist of:

  • Head-to-Head (Heads Up) – A daily fantasy sports contest against a single opponent.
  • 50/50 – A league in which the top 50% of scores win. In a 50/50 league with 100 entries, the top 50 scores double their “buy-in” minus the “rake.” So even if you finish 50th in a 100-man $10 50/50, you win the same amount as the 1st-place finisher ($18).
  • Double-Up – Cash game in which players who win double their entry fee. “Double-Ups” are different from 50/50s in that those who win actually multiply their full entry (for instance, a $10 entry that wins in a Double-Up would win $20), but sites take their rakes by having fewer than half the field.
