  • 1st rank = 100%
  • In the event when there are two (2) or more winners with the same balance (therefore same rank), they will share the prize of the rank prize.

Two (2) players win the 2nd rank, the prizes will be counted as: Player A = 1,200, Player B and Player C = 720/2 = 360.

  • The Total Prize is 10,000
  • 1st rank= 50%, 2nd rank = 30%, 3rd rank = 15%, 4th rank = 5%
  • The Prize for 1st rank = 5,000, 2nd rank = 3,000, 3rd rank = 1,500, 4th rank = 500
  • Player balance: Player A = 21,000, Player B = 21000, Player C = 21000, Player D = 12,000
  • 3 players win the 1st rank, the prizes will be counted as: Player A, Player B and Player C = 5,000/3 = 1,666.67, Player D = 3,000

 

  • The Total Prize is 3,000
  • 1st Rank = 100%
  • The Prize for 1st rank = 3,000
  • Player Balance: Player A = 5,000, Player B = 5,000, Player C = 5,000
  • 3 players win the 1st rank, the prizes will be counted as: Player A, Player B and Player C = 3,000/3 = 1,000
  • If the number of qualified winners is less than the number of rank prizes, the winning percentage will remain the same.

For example:

  • The Total Prize is 10,000
  • Rank 1 = 50%, Rank 2 = 35%, Rank 3 = 10%, Rank 4 = 5%
  • The Prize for 1st rank = 5,000, 2nd rank = 3,500, 3rd rank = 1,000, 4th rank = 500
