- Why are Pony Up games legal?
Pony Up Fun games are not gambling because all of our competitions are skill and ability rather than games of luck. Pony Up Fun does not profit on the outcome of any of the matches played, and has no vested interest in who wins or loses.
To be considered gambling there are three requisites: 1) Consideration 2) Game of Chance 3) a Prize.
Pony Up Fun games are considered games of skill where the more skilled player will win the majority of the time thus not being considered games of chance.
- Why is there a time limit for some of the games?
Each game has a different time limit depending on the pace of the game. We keep time limits so the players keep the game moving.
- Why is there a time limit on the games?
There is a time limit on a player’s turn to keep the game moving along. Once each game is started, the clock starts. Once a move is made, the clock restarts and your opponent will be notified that it is their turn. The clock restarts after every move and this goes back and forth until the game finishes or a player lets the clock expire. Players will be sent a 15 minute notification warning reminding them they must move or they will forfeit the game.
Certain games which tend to run longer, the players will be able to determine amongst themselves how long they will have to play their turn.
- What happens if the clock expires?
The player who allows the clock to expire during their turn forfeits the match and loses their wager.
- Why are some games pending or cancelled?
If you submit a challenge you will be able to make the first move. If the opponent has not yet accepted the match it will be pending, until your opponent accepts and makes their first move. If the opponent has turned down the match or has not accepted the challenge within the game’s specified time frame, the game will end and you will be refunded your money.
