Experience Levels & Matchmaking

Last updated: Jan 30, 2024

Once you lock in your entry, you’ll be placed into a group of contestants that 1) Have the same number of projections in their entry, 2) Selected the same entry fee as you, and 3) Are close to you in experience level. We fill groups on a first-come first-served basis, so you can get in on the action and get paid faster!

For 2-pick and 3-pick entries, you’ll be placed into groups of 20 total members.
For 4-pick entries, you’ll be placed into groups of 50 total members.

All Members in the group will be human players; PrizePicks does not use bots to fill out groups. Each participant will be automatically assigned a randomly generated username. As of right now, you do not have the ability to choose or edit your username, although we may enable this option in the near future.

Experience levels on PrizePicks fall into one of the three categories below:

Rookie: Suit up kid, it’s time to make your debut! If you have participated in 50 or fewer competitions on PrizePicks, AND you haven’t been otherwise identified as a more experienced player, you’ll start out as a Rookie. Rookies show up on the leaderboard with a 1-star badge.

All-Star: You’ve made your mark in this league and proven you’re ready for a step up in competition. If you have participated in between 50 and 500 PrizePicks competitions, AND you haven’t been otherwise identified as a more experienced player, you’ll compete at the All-Star level. All-Stars show up on the leaderboard with a 2-star badge.

Superstar: When the announcer reads your name, the fans cheer and the competition sweats nervously. You will earn Superstar status if you accomplish ONE of the following:

  • Entering more than 500 contests offered by PrizePicks
  • Winning more than five prizes where the total cumulative value of the prizes is $2,500 or more from a single DFS operator

Only the most grizzled PrizePicks veterans can hang at the Superstar level. Will you be one of them? Superstars show up on the leaderboard with a 3-star badge.

Rookies will ALWAYS play together, but there may be occasions when All-Stars and Superstars are placed in the same group.
