A: Kingpin is a platform that allows handicappers to place their picks and users to follow those picks.
A: No, Kingpin is NOT a sportsbook. All picks use pretend money and all gambling is simulated, no real money is wagered, won or lost.
A: A Kingpin PRO subscription allows you to view the Sharp Pick as well as every upcoming pick from every user. You can also receive instant pick notifications and track your experts. If you want to view upcoming picks from proven sports bettors and use that information to place bets on your sportsbook, the Kingpin PRO subscription is for you.
A: The Sharp Pick aggregates all the bets from users on that game, and based on those users’ individual winnings for that sport, shows a combined Sharp Pick.
A: We pay the top handicappers a cash prize at the end of every month, and it is free to place picks and be eligible for that cash prize. We track picking records for every pick placed, so you can see how you’ve done historically and what sports you are best at handicapping.
A: YES! We pay the top handicappers every month.
A: By placing picks, you are automatically taking part in the competition. If you finish in the Top 10 overall, as shown on Top Experts, money will be credited to your real account balance (seen in My Profile). If you finish in the Top 3 for NFL, NCAAF, MLB, NHL, NBA or NCAAB (if the season is ongoing), money will be credited to your real account balance (seen in My Profile).
A: The top handicappers are determined on the last day of every month. The top 10 overall handicappers share in the $3,000 monthly pot, and the top three handicappers for each major sport share in the $3,000 monthly pot (see How it Works for full information).
A: We pay handicappers with Venmo or Zelle.
A: No. No users can delete picks after the picks have been placed. You can clear your entire pick history and start fresh, but you cannot clear individual picks. You can also clear a specific sport, but you can then no longer place picks on that sport forever.
A: Most users pick $1,000 per pick, so you can count $1,000 as one unit.
