Contest Categories

Fixed Registrations

Contests in the Fixed Registrations category have a set number of required participants that must be fulfilled before the contest can start.


Contests categorized as Scheduled will start at a predetermined time as long as the minimum number of traders have registered to take part.


Contest Types

One vs One

Settle bitter rivalries or just challenge someone to a trading duel. These contests allow two participants to compete head to head.

Winner Takes All

The name says it all, there can only be one winner. Regardless of how many traders take part, only one will emerge victorious and win the entire prize pool. The only question is, are you good enough?


At the end of a Double-Up contest the prize pool will be shared accordingly amongst the best performing 50% of participants. So trade hard to make sure you are in that top 50.


Ideal for the fiercely competitive where only a podium finish will do. These contests finish when the first trader reaches a specific equity target. If no trader reaches the target before the time is up, the normal payout structure will apply.


If you are looking for some of the biggest cash winning opportunities in the arena, guaranteed contests are ideal for you. Each contest has a minimum guaranteed prize pool that will be shared amongst multiple winners according to trading performance.

Guaranteed contests also offer the ability to use the Top up and Push upfeatures.


Perfect for beginners or traders who want to jump straight in to a regular contest. This applies to contests that are standard in nature and not those that are uniquely different as is the case with the alternative options explained above.
