Two days before your game begins, you'll be prompted to submit your
official starting weight.
Our standard weigh-in process involves you submitting two photos, one of you on a scale in airport security attire; another of the scale's readout with your weigh-in word.
HOW WE PREVENT CHEATING
We have a photo review process in which players submit proof of their initial and final weights to our team of Referees. We also have algorithms that detect unusual activity within a game or across games and use an auditing system where some players may be required to submit extra proof of their weight loss using: a Skype weigh-in with one of our Referees, a video weigh-in, or an in-person weigh-in at a location pre-approved by DietBet, such as a Walgreens or CVS clinic. If requested, you will have to submit further proof of your weight within 24 hours. Since weights fluctuate naturally, we allow up to 1% of your final weight as variance for your audited weigh-in only. This variance does not apply to the standard final weigh-in. Failure to comply will result in disqualification and forfeiture of your winnings and initial bet. You may also be banned from playing again and subject to other penalties.

DietBet on the go with your iPhone!
Nothing saps the spirit of your rivals faster than a photo of the salad your just ate (just as the waiter is putting a slice of cake in front of them.)
After the final day, you will have 48 hours to weigh out. Even if you have not won, please enter your final weight. You will not be required to submit photos for verification unless you are a winner.
48 hours after your game ends, the results are made official and the pot (less DietBet's fee) is divided among the winners. Winners are notified by email of their payout, which is credited to their DietBet account. You can apply your winnings to your next DietBet or cash out now via PayPal and treat yourself to something special ... you earned it!Find another game or create your own
It's called Social Dieting
DietBet is not winner-take-all. Everyone who loses the weight splits the pot evenly.
How do you prevent cheating?
Players will submit official weigh-in photos at the start and end of a game. DietBet will verify each photo and certify the final winners.
Um, is this gambling?
Nope. DietBet is not a game of chance. Believe it or not, your weight is under your control.
