No. All user-created contests are non-guaranteed.
There is a limit of one (1) entry per contest per person. There are no exceptions.
You can change your answer as many times as you’d like up until the contest locks. A contest locks when the earliest sporting event(s) covered in a given contest is scheduled to start. When a contest locks, no new entries are allowed.
Yes. After you successfully create a contest, your contest will be posted on the HOFr homepage for yourself and other users to play. A contest creator can choose to participate (or not) in their created contest. All users can create a contest without paying an entry-fee, but in order to participate in any paid-entry contest an entry-fee (which will be debited from your HOFr account balance) must be submitted to qualify as a successful submission.
To enter the contest, join by selecting a desired contest game card. From there, follow the prompts and instructions provided to answer the questions and complete your submission. Paid-entry contests require an entry-fee which will be deducted from your account balance in your HOFr wallet.
User-created contests must have a minimum of five (5) questions, a maximum of six (6) participants and a limit of one (1) entry per user per contest. Additionally, prizes are fixed and will not change once the contest is available in the HOFr app.
Yes! HOFr encourages all users to set their own terms and generate their own content by mixing and matching the 12 different question types to create their ideal contest. Enjoy the endless possibilities on HOFr.
HOFr’s twelve different game types are a series of multiple-choice questions, which vary in difficulty and skill. Each game type consists of questions of the same question type. A user can choose to create a contest based on a single game type or customize their own contest. When creating your own contest, a user can choose between any of the twelve question types which make up the twelve contest types. Users can create contests where each question uses a different question type or where each question uses the same question type. For a full breakdown of the 12 game / question types, visit the Official Rules.
All winners are subject to verification by HOFr, whose decisions are final. HOFr shall solely determine any form of verification. A user is not a winner of any prize unless and until (i) such user has provided any requested information necessary for HOFr to comply with its requirements under applicable law and/or verify such entrant’s eligibility, (ii) HOFr verifies such user’s eligibility and the winning entry, and (iii) such user has been notified that the verification process is complete. HOFr will not accept screenshots, affidavits or other evidence of winning in lieu of its validation process. Furthermore, HOFr, in accordance with its Terms of Service, reserves the right to conduct an investigation into whether or not any win is legitimate in which a user may be asked to provide more information. The result of and response to said investigation will be at HOFr’s sole discretion.
As a general rule, HOFr reserves the right to cancel, extend, modify or suspend contests, in its sole discretion, without any restrictions. In the event that a paid-entry contest is canceled, entry-fees will be refunded to all participants’ accounts.
No refunds will be issued except in the event that a contest is canceled.

Select ‘Create’ on the bottom line navigation in the HOFr app. From there, follow the prompts and instructions provided to set the contest terms and craft the question content to complete your submission. The adjustable contest terms include the entry-fee, number of seats, number of questions and prize distribution. The question content involves choosing between twelve (12) different game types (or questions types if you choose to create your own) and then editing the sport, match-ups, players and statistics covered. Once the listed requirements for contest creation are met, including a minimum of five (5) questions, a user can submit the contest and thus share it to the HOFr homepage where it becomes available for all users (including the contest creator) to participate.
HOFr does its best to ensure a contest will run whenever a user submits picks. As a result, users have the option to enable ‘auto-resize’ when creating a contest. When enabled, contest resizing automatically adjusts the prize pool and prize distribution to reflect the number of entrants when a contest locks; this measure ensures that the same contest will run as opposed to being canceled.
Previous contests can be viewed from the ‘Account’ section on the bottom line navigation of the HOFr app.
All user-created contests have the option for a ‘Winner-take-all’ prize distribution. Meaning, the user with the highest point total once a contest closes will receive the total prize. In the event of tie (meaning, two or more users having the same highest point total), the prize will be split evenly among those qualifying users.
Depending on the number of seats, user-created contests also have the option for a prize distribution up to ‘Top Five.’ All prize distributions above ‘Winner-take-all’ will result in a fixed payout structure with those finishing higher in the rankings receiving a larger percentage of the total prize than those finishing lower in the rankings. A ‘Top Five’ prize distribution will result in a payout for at least the top five highest ranking users (including ties). A ‘Top Four’ prize distribution will result in a payout for at least the top four highest ranking users (including ties). And so on.
For each paid-entry contest, the entry fee and total prize distributions are posted for you on the ‘Game Details’ screen after selecting the game card. The entry-fee amount listed will be deducted from your account balance upon confirming your entry, and the prize amount listed will be credited to your account upon winning.
All prizes are established prior to a contest becoming available to potential participants. Prizes cannot change once a contest is shared and made available to users. The value of any and all prizes are not subject to change depending on the number of participants or the amount of any entry-fees paid by participants.
