XY Gaming requires you to use games you already own on your computer or console, but you challenge other players on their site.
You can get paid cash or redeem your rewards for other prizes when you win tournaments.
Some tournaments pay the winner at the end, and other tournaments choose a winner at the end of the week or month.
There are also three different types of tournaments. Free tournaments have no entry fee and allow you to win cash or a prize.
A second option, 50/50 tournaments, reward all players who finish in the top half of the standings.
The final tournament option is a “Double Up” tournament where the recipient pool is smaller, but you earn double the entry fee (i.e., $5 entry fee equals a $10 prize).
To help keep the competition as fair as possible, XY Gaming matches you with opponents of similar skills levels.
They also have a score verification system to prevent fraudulent victories.
