PlayON Playing Guide
PlayON present their users with all the usual filters. There’s a slider that allows you to adjust for any buy-in range, you can choose to view just that day’s tournaments or all upcoming events as well filtering by contest type, structure and sport.
You can also click on the contest list headers to search by league, start time, entry fee, size of prize pool, the number of entries to date and any cap on the field size.
Simply click on ‘Enter’ to view further information relating to each individual contest.
When you click into a contest it’s also easy to see all the relevant information such as the fixtures included, start times, which players have entered to date, buy-in size, how the prize money will be distributed as well as having the option to invite friends or remind yourself of the scoring rules.
Team selection is really straightforward on PlayON. Simply select 11 players in a 4-4-2 formation from the $100m budget at your disposal. There are no restrictions on the number of players that can be selected form a particular team.
Your line-up is displayed in a ‘pitch view’ and there is an ‘ADD’ button next to each player. Once you click this button the player automatically appears in your line-up unless you have already submitted enough players to fill that position. If you change your mind you can just click on the ‘REMOVE’ button that appears next to each player after he has been added.
Players can be filtered by position, salary, team name or player name and by ownership levels (the percentage of managers that have picked that player).
Once you have made your selections click on ‘Save Team’ followed by ‘Enter Game’ to confirm your line-up.
