A dietbet is a contest to lose a set percentage of your starting weight in a set amount of time. Players all bet money into the pot at the outset of the game. Winners split the pot.
A DietBet 10 is a dietbet where players compete to lose 10% of their starting weight in six months.
A DietBet 10 is divided into six rounds. Each round has it’s own weight loss goal, bet, and pot.
A Referee (or Ref) is an agent of DietBetter who manages official weigh-ins.
The bet for the round is collected by DietBetter and kept in the pot until the end of the round. Players have the option to pay the entire bet upfront or pay monthly by credit card.
Half of the bet goes into the pot for the current round. The pot, minus DietBetter's cut, is distributed to the winners after DietBetter’s Referees finalize the round’s results.
The grand prize is split among all players that qualify for Round 6, and successfully lose 10% of their starting weight at the end of the six rounds. It is comprised of half of the monthly bets for the first five rounds plus all of the Round 6 bets.
Unofficial weigh-ins are self-reported by players during the dietbet and do not require photos.
Official weigh-ins are controlled by DietBetter's Referees and entail a photography-based weight-verification process set forth in the Rules. Only Official weigh-ins are used to determine winners.
In between the initial and final weigh-ins, weigh-in tokens must be used in order to complete official weigh-ins. They may be purchased during sign up or at any time during the game. Weigh-in tokens are non-refundable and non-transferrable.
Surprizes are prizes chosen by DietBetter to reward those players that keep themselves accountable by weighing in regularly with weigh-in tokens. Examples of surprizes include a FitBit, Amazon gift card, or digital scale.
