GUARANTEED & NON-GUARANTEED CONTESTS
Fantasy Aces offers guaranteed and non-guaranteed contests. Guaranteed contests are contests that will run no matter what even if the contest does not fill. These contests are indicated by saying "Guaranteed" in the contest title. Our highlighted contests are also always guaranteed. All other contests are considered non-guaranteed. If non-guaranteed contests are not 100% filled by the designated start times then the contest will be canceled and your entry fee will be refunded back to your account.
When two or more entries are tied with the same amount of points, the prize money is split between them. However, there are exceptions.
When breaking ties for entries that will move on to the next round, the entry with the highest scoring player (including D/ST) that is uniquely owned wins. This means that if you both have the same high scoring player, you move on to each entry's second highest scoring player to break the tie, and so on.
The first tie breaker is that the entry with the highest scoring player (including D/ST) that is uniquely owned wins. This means that if you both have the same high scoring player, you move on to each entry's second highest scoring player to break the tie, and so on.
If a tie occurs with identical lineups, a future match will be set up for the teams that are tied. This match will be of the same sport and contest type (Classic/SalaryPro). FantasyAces will contact each player with the details of this match and when it will take place.
ROSTERS & START TIMES
All drafted lineups are locked and deemed final at the scheduled contest start time. You are solely responsible for all drafting decisions. It is your responsibility to draft your team and make edits to your rosters prior to the designated contest set start times. We recommend making all of your last minute changes to your roster at least 10 minutes prior to the FantasyAces designated contest start times. Please contact support if you experience any technical issues.
Edits to one’s lineup cannot be made after the start of a contest. FantasyAces is not at fault for mistakes made to your drafted lineups. Users should immediately send an inquiry to email@example.com to address any problems experienced with the functionality of the draft lobby.
WITHDRAWING FROM ENTERED CONTESTS
Users may unregister from any contest at anytime up to 20 minutes before contest start times. Users will NOT be allowed to unregister from a contest that has already filled.
To withdraw from a contest, view the "My Games" page. Each game you are entered in and meets the eligibility requirements above will feature a red "Cancel" button that can be used to remove that entry from the contest. If you have any difficulties, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance on withdrawing entries.
In the event that a game is postponed/cancelled before the game starts, players drafted from that game will not be awarded any fantasy points.
MLB:Fantasy Aces abides by official scoring from SportsRadar API in accordance with MLB rules and includes all games that MLB deems to be “regulation” games. If MLB rules a game “suspended” then the statistics accumulated the day of the original, scheduled game will be used. Due to the nature of Daily Fantasy, any statistics accumulated at a later date when the suspended game is completed will not be included.*
Double-headers are common in MLB. Fantasy Aces will in no instance combine statistics from players playing in a double-header. The statistics scored for a player playing in a double header will be taken from the game that was originally scheduled for that contest. Based on the start times of a double-header, these games may be included in a split-slate of MLB contests (one early, one late) but never included in the same slate.

We accept payment via PayPal, MasterCard,Visa, and Discover. Should you have any issues placing a deposit, please email us at email@example.com and we'll try to assist.

FANTASYACES SERVICE FEE
Membership is free. FantasyAces.com offers a Fantasy Sports Service and charges a service fee for entry to any paid fantasy sports contests. Most contest fees ranges between 6% - 10% of a paid entry. Some tournaments may range between 11%-20% or higher.
Anytime your referral enters a paid contest, you will be paid at the end of every month on 20% or our service fees. In order to qualify for the referral program, a user must play at least one paid game per month to receive the referral bonus.
You will see your bonus balance is separate from your cash balance. We deposit your bonus balance into your cash balance in increments every time you play a paid contest. This "increment" is 5% of a paid contest entry or 50% of our service fee, which will be redistributed from your bonus balance to your cash balance every time you enter a paid contest. Once the funds are in your cash balance they can be used for contest entry.
Users can accumulate Fantasy Aces Member Points as they enter cash contests!

To use member points to enter these contests, simply open the draft page of the contests and select the "Use Member Points" checkbox before saving your team!
