In addition to playing free games, players can elect to play for $Tickets.
$Tickets can be used in all GameColony.com games for purchasing, playing and cashing out the $winnings.
1 $Ticket = $1 USD.
Players may cash-out their $Tickets at any time (rate: 1 $Ticket = $1 USD) or use them to win instant $Prizes in Tournaments and Mini-Tourneys online.
Players with $Tickets in their accounts also enjoy extra benefits: playing rooms for them are never 'full', they have no advertising distractions, they have superior & timely support & they can play in TD-supervised multi-player tournaments.
Eligible players [please see GameColony.com Terms & Conditions] can participate in Tournaments in our Games of Skill and win instant Cash Prizes.
If you use non-dollar convertible currencies, currency conversion will be automatic both at the time of the purchase and at the time of cash-out.
If you purchase dollar-equivalent $Tickets for your private GameColony $Ticket account via PayPal, your currency (Euros or Pounds or other convertible currency) will be auto-converted to dollar-equivalent value in $Tickets at the prevailing US Dollar rate at the time of the purchase.
Similarly, when you cash-out your dollar-equivalent $Tickets back to PayPal, they will be automatically converted back to your currency at the prevailing US Dollar rate at the time of the cash-out.
Just as in real land-based Tournaments, players pay an entry fee to participate. Entry fees range from 50 cents to $100. A winner collects a prize based on the total tournament prize-pot, comprised of entry fees (see commission schedule).
Entry fees are paid in a form of Tournament $Tickets, that must first be purchased via "Buy $Tickets" available from Game room menu . $Tickets are available in five packages below. Each ticket costs $1(USD) plus minimal applicable bank charges and processing fees, summarized as follows:
5 $Tickets for -- $5.95
10 $Tickets for -- $10.95
25 $Tickets for -- $26.95
50 $Tickets for -- $51.95
100 $Tickets for -- $103.95
To help you keep track of your account balance during a Tournament or a Mini-tourney with $Prizes, the image of a Ticket like the one below is displayed at your game table. The Ticket image like the one below is shown privately only at your game table and it has your remaining account balance (e.g., 25 $Tickets below) and also shows what the current entry fee is (e.g., 1 Ticket). Winner(s) receive $Prizes based on the percentage of combined entry fees minus a small commission (see commissions). The private chat area also describes your account transactions during all Tournaments.
You can purchase Tournaments Tickets via a valid Credit Card or via PayPal directly on our site by clicking "Buy Tickets" navigation button on left-hand side.
There are NO charges for withdrawals or 'conversion' of Tickets in your account back to cash. Simply click 'Manage your Account' link and select the "Cash-Out" option.
PLEASE NOTE: In order to participate in Tournaments, you need to feel very comfortable with our Site and our games. In fact, it is an absolute requirement for players to play at least 3 FREE games on our site, prior to participating in our Money-based Tournaments.
