FAQ: The Big News

What’s the big change WinView is making?

On January 4, 2018, WinView announced a limited release of its Paid Contests in 5 states initially, including CA, WI, PA, NC and GA.

On Sunday, January 7, we expanded our roll out of Paid Contests into a total of 36 states. The 5 additional states of NV, NJ, MA, NE and AL will be included over the coming day week or so, bringing the total to 41. So stay tuned.

Why make the change?

You asked (overwhelmingly) and we listened! We at WinView know that sports on TV are always more exciting when there’s more action.

Will there still be free rooms?

Absolutely. Whether you want to lower your risk or get some practice in, free games aren’t going anywhere.

Why is this a better opportunity than daily fantasy sports?

One Word: Winnability. Does Tom Brady throw a hail mary every pass? Does Steph shoot a half-court shot every time? We give you the opportunity to win money every time you play with payouts after every quarter. Daily Fantasy can’t touch that.

When will WinView begin producing games of Quidditch?

Start a televised league and we’ll talk.

What happens to my WinView Tickets?

Your WinView Tickets will automatically carry over, which can be used for entry into higher paying contests.

What happens to my WinCoins balance?

WinCoins will automatically convert into what they were always born to be…cold hard CA$H! You can use that money to play in paid entry contests or cash out and spend it on whatever you want. Just don’t spend it on anything stupid, like Daily Fantasy…

What happens to my SkillRank and experience points?

Our SkillRank System has been temporarily down during the roll out of Paid Contests. We expected to have the SkillRank System back online in the coming week or so.

I‘m a Player Affiliate. What’s up with your $5 Veteran Referral Reward Program?

On January 4, 2018, with the addition of paid contests, we changed the $5 Veteran Referral Reward Program to the new, $10 Refer-A-Friend Program, which is planned to launch on January 10, 2018.

Previously, we rewarded you with $5 for a referral of anyone who sampled a WinView free contest. But with change, comes opportunity.

Now, we’ve upped the ante by paying out $10 for a referral, but it’s tied to the person playing through at least $20 worth of paid contests.

How come the app isn’t on the Google Play Store?

The WinView Games app is unavailable on the Google Play Store at this time. You can install WinView on your Android device by going here and following the instructions.

FAQ: Gameplay Changes

What can you tell me about the new paid entry rooms?

Just because it’s paid entry, it doesn’t mean they’re harder to win.

  • Rooms are still small in size and community focused.
  • You can expect a good variety, depending on your Sports IQ and WinView experience.
  • For example, we’ll have a range of entry fees from $2-$25 and prize pools ranging from $20-$300.
  • Competition room sizes will range from 12 to 50 players, which will have an impact on the overall prize pool.

What kind of new rooms (contests) will there be?

We will be adding new room offerings constantly to cater to both high stakes players and casual fans, including 50-50’s, quintuple ups, winner-take-all and head-to-heads. We’ll also be layering on global tournaments and WinView Nation-wide raffles to keep things extra spicy.

How many room contests can I play in at once?

You can enter as many paid entry contests as you want within a single football/basketball quarter or baseball inning. Users may only enter one free or ticket entry room at the same time.

Will I be able to play more than one NFL or NBA matchup at the same time?

Currently, you can only play one live game at a time.

When will registrations close for each room?

Registrations for both ticket and paid entry rooms will close at the beginning of each quarter. No late entries will be allowed. Free rooms will remain open for the duration of each contest. 

Will WinView have guaranteed prize pools?

For most contests, we’ll have guaranteed rooms regardless of whether or not the room fills up. For some of the bigger prize pools, we’ll have non-guaranteed rooms, which will be cancelled if they don’t hit a certain threshold of players.

FAQ: Deposit | Withdraw

What can I use to deposit?

WinView accepts all major credit/debit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. We also accept PayPal. All transactions are 100% secure and Payment Card Industry compliant.

Can I get my deposit back or is it forfeited?

You can withdraw your deposit at any time, but once you pay an entry fee on a contest, that money is spent.

Do you store my credit card information?

Our payment security partners digitally encrypt your information and create a unique ID for us to debit or credit your account. Your card information never touches WinView servers and is not stored by us at any point.

Can I use Bed Bath & Beyond coupons as paid entry? My Mom said they never expire.

Please leave.

How do I submit a withdrawal request?

In the app, Navigate to More > Withdrawal. If you withdraw more than your deposit amount, your initial deposit amount will be returned to the payment method you used for that deposit. The rest will go to your desired withdrawal destination – either PayPal or check via mail.

Check out this link for more details on how to withdraw using PayPal.

How long do withdrawals take?

It typically takes 2-3 business days if you withdraw via PayPal. If you request a check it can take up to 7-10 days for delivery. Our Accounting Department processes withdrawals Monday – Friday from 9am-5pm PT.

Do I have to complete a W-9 IRS Form prior to withdrawing?

Once you accumulate and request to withdraw $600 or more over the course of a calendar year, you will have to send a completed W-9 to before your withdrawal is approved.

FAQ: Legality

Is it legal to play in every state?
