Gameplay

Injured or Non-Playing Players

In the event where a player does not participate or log playing time in their nominated game, all related challenges for that player shall be voided.

Postponed Games

Rules for how postponed games are treated in No Halftime contests vary depending on the sport and contest type. For NFL contests, you will receive points for any postponed games that are played no later than Wednesday of that week. For one day MLB contests, if the postponed game is played on the same day then you will receive points for your players in those games as normal. If a game is postponed to a later date or called off for any reason, any players you have selected for that game will receive zero points and the challenge will be voided. For one day NBA and NHL contests, you will receive points for any postponed games that are played no later than the next day. For any NBA, MLB, and NHL contests that are scheduled to include games from multiple days (such as some playoff contests), you will receive points for any games that are played no later than the day after the last game scheduled as part of the contest.  NOTE: A game will be considered to be ‘played’ on a given day if it begins on that day and is officially called or declared completed by NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, PGA or ATP no later than 6am Eastern on the following day.

Suspended Games

Rules for how suspended games are treated vary depending on the sport and game type. A game is considered suspended if it is unfinished, but to be completed in the future. At a minimum, the statistics compiled prior to the end of the contest period will count towards contests. For a suspended NFL game, you will receive points for the remainder of the game if it is played no later than Wednesday of that week. For one day MLB contests, if the game is suspended until a future date, points accumulated in the remainder of the game will not count towards contests. For one day NBA and NHL contests, you will receive points for any postponed games that are played no later than the next day. For any NBA, MLB, and NHL contests that are scheduled to include games from multiple days (such as some playoff contests), you will receive the remaining points for the any games that are completed no later than the day after the last game scheduled as part of the contest.

Traded Players

Note that a player traded to a different team shall void all challenges created on that player for his old team.

Ties

In the scenario of a tie between players/teams, the challenges will be voided.

Contest Settlement and Payment

We try to settle contests and run payments as quickly as possible, but must ensure we do so accurately. Many contests are settled within 24-48 hours after the applicable games are completed. However, to settle we have to wait until all the applicable player statistics have been reported by our third party stats provider. This lets us ensure that the final box scores are complete. Please note there can sometimes be last minute changes. If there is difficulty obtaining official results or issues with scoring, the contest may be settled beyond 48 hrs

Scoring Revisions

During the game we receive live scoring from our stats provider. After the game has ended they pass us a final box score for the game. After we receive and confirm the box scores for all the day’s games we then settle all entries. However, very rarely, the leagues and stats provider revise the box scores after the final box score has been released. In the event of this occurring the player scores on No Halftime will not be updated and the settlements will not be revised. Note that this is not the same situation as a case where a correction needs to be made after settlement due to a problem with the data feed or the settlement process. In these cases the settlement process (including payment) may be reversed and games resettled correctly.
