Main FAQs…

How do you verify weight loss?

Because of the nature of our weight loss online, reliable weight verification is very important. That’s why we developed our special two-photo validation process. When you submit an official weigh-in, you’re given a time-specific “weigh-in word,” which you need to write down on a piece of paper. Then, you take two photos: one full-length photo of you standing on the scale, and one of the scale’s readout, with the weigh-in word visible. This process prevents players from submitting old photos or falsely reporting their weight. 

Our team of DietBet Referees then individually reviews each weigh-in submission. If anything seems off, the weigh-in is rejected and the player is prompted to re-submit.

Wouldn’t it be easy to cheat?

We take the possibility of cheating very seriously, and have a comprehensive and structured process in place to prevent it. 

The weigh-in process described above helps ensure that people do not reuse old photos or have somebody else weigh in for them, while the human review of each weigh-in provides an additional layer of security. Our Referees have played in DietBet games themselves, and know how to look out for red flags that an automated system would miss. 

On top of that, we have automated algorithms that flag players’ accounts when unusual weight loss patterns are detected. If a player loses or gains weight in a way that seems suspicious or unhealthy, we reach out to them to address the concerns. Players whose accounts have been flagged must submit video weigh-ins until the flag is lifted. For any game where the bets are over $100, we require video weigh-ins for all players. 

Given that these are weight loss competitions with real money on the line, we have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to cheating. If anyone is caught not representing their weight properly, they will be ejected from the site without a refund and banned from playing in future games. 

Ultimately, we’ve found that 99% of the players who join DietBet are here for the right reasons. They really want to get healthy, and they know that cheating the system is just cheating themselves. Still, we continue to be vigilant about cheating prevention, both to increase accountability and to ensure that each game is fair.

How much money will I win?

Your profit in any game you win depends on the size of the pot and how many fellow winners there are. Games with large pots and a lower win rate can have very high payouts, while payouts will be less for games with small pots and many winners. In Kickstarters, winners get back an average of 1.5-2x their bet, while the average Transformer winner takes home $325 for winning all 6 rounds, or $175 for winning just the final round.

How do I get my winnings?

Getting your winnings is as easy as clicking a button! Shortly after your game finalizes, your winnings will appear in your account as Points. If you don’t want to put your Points toward a new game, just go to Your Points and select “Request a payout via PayPal.” 

If you require a paper check, we charge $5 to cover the cost of writing and mailing the check within the United States regardless of the payout amount. Your payout will become available within 48 hours of being requested.

Can I get a refund if I drop out of a game partway through?

For Kickstarters, you can drop out of a game up until the Day 7 and receive a full refund. 

For Transformers, those who pay upfront can receive a refund of their bet and tokens up until Day 14 of Round 1. This refund will not include the bet amount for Round 6, as upfront players get this round for free. Players paying monthly can receive a refund of their tokens and first month’s bet up until Day 14 of Round 1, and will not be charged for future Rounds if they drop out mid-game. 

For all game types, exceptions may be made if a player needs to drop out for medical reasons after the refund window has ended. Note that for Transformer games, refunds will only be made for unplayed rounds. Documentation must be provided to DietBet for verification purposes. 

We cannot refund players after a game has ended.

How much of the pot does DietBet take? Why do you need to take anything?

We want to reward our players with as much money as possible for accomplishing the super impressive task of achieving their weight loss goals. But we also need to keep the lights on over here at WayBetter HQ. Our fee is used to pay for transaction costs, Referees, our full-time team, and other company expenses. 

DietBet’s fee is 10-25% of the payout, depending on the amount of the initial bet. Because this is taken out of the gross pot before payout out the winners, players who do not win don’t incur any fees.
