CONTESTS - (SCORING & PAYOUTS)

Prior to the start of all contest, there will be set prize payouts based on the specific contest format. The prizes or sizes of the contests do not change when a contest is creates and available to the public. Certain games may cancel if they are not guaranteed to run and do not fill 100%. Games may be immediately canceled and recreated if an error occurs in the creation and loading of a certain game. All prizes and awards offered to winning participants are established and made known to the participants in advance of the contest and their value is not determined by the number of participants or the amount of any fees paid by those participants. The statistical scoring system created by FantasyAces will be available to view in the game details, along with the payout structure, both prior to a contest entered. The prizes are 100% based on the statistical scoring system and a live and accurate statistical feed from real professional games played. The live statistical feeds are provided by our 3rd party provider, SportsRadar. Payouts will be rewarded to the users that create a winning team and prizes paid out based on our statistical scoring system. Users that receive a cash prize for winning a paid contest will receive deposits shortly after the contest settle. To insure accuracy with scoring, we will wait for the final statistical results from our data provider before we proceed with the payouts. In some cases, there may be extended delays of up to 24-48 hours due to official statistical changes. Any delays are to insure statistical scoring and the integrity of FantasyAces scoring format.

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. 

TIE-BREAKERS

When two or more entries are tied with the same amount of points, the prize money is split between them. However, there are exceptions.

Survivor Games

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.

Qualifiers (satellites are not included in this)
 
For positions that are paid out tickets and that end in a tie, there will be tiebreakers. 

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.

Satellites 
 
In the event of a tie for the last satellite ticket in a prize pool, there will be a cash prize split amongst the players in the tiebreaker, equivalent to the value of the ticket(s). No ticket will be awarded.

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 support@fantasyaces.com to address any problems experienced with the functionality of the draft lobby.

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.

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.

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

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.
