I tried to start my own game, but unfortunately I was not able to get anyone to join and now I realized that the game got deleted. I suppose the money i bet on the game will be refunded?

Hi Kristin! We did issue a refund to your account for the cancelled game. The refund will go through to your original payment method. If you paid via credit card, your card will reflect the refund in 3-5 business days. If you have any additional questions you can reach out to us at support@waybetter.com.

Hi Jaz! You can actually submit your weekly progress weigh-in anytime during the week! The week goes from Thursday until Wednesday. Progress weigh-ins are due by Wednesday at 11:59 PM PT.

Does anyone know if official dietbet flyers can be found anywhere on this site? We would like to host a group at our work place.

Referee Kristin

Hello, Tammie! We don't generate flyers but if you host a game, there will be an invite link which you can send to your co-workers. If you have any questions about hosting a game, you can reach out to us at support@waybetter.com :-)

Do you have to pay the $50 membership fee to participate in a game? I have a game that finished today, one tomorrow and one the next day. I just received an email that my membership has expired and they are sorry to see me go. Am I going to lose the three games I am in? If I pay $50 for membership, I may actually lose money even though I'm poised to win each game I'm in.

Hey Cathy! We are sorry for the confusion. You do not need the membership to submit your final weigh-ins. Membership is an optional purchase that does not affect your games.

Cathy S.

Thank-you!

I tried to look up how transformer bets work and i see that you pay in monthly (or up front to save 1 month's payment) and that there are monthly goals but I don't see any description of if there are monthly winners and payouts or how monthly payouts would work and then how the final payout works for winners. I was hoping to find an example like if 100 people joined and the monthly buy-in is $25 and 50% of people make each monthly goal and final goal and I am one of those people, what would my payouts look like. I'm curious because the transformer goals on the whole are a little light for me once it tapers from 3% so it's largely the chance to win some moola that would be motivating me.

Winnings from each round of Transformer games will be accumulated and held until the end of the game. Once the game is over you can cash out.

Your winnings will be displayed on your games dashboard page so you can easily keep track and watch your winnings stack up! :)

Thank you!

where do I find the daily weigh in word? It's been awhile since played and I don't know where to find it so I can take/upload pictures
Comment

Referee Megan

Hey Tinab! Great question. You will start the weigh-in process to find your word. The word will be on the second screen right before you upload any photos.

Are Maintainer games still available? I was very interested in joining one in September, once my Transformer games finish up, but I can't find any Maintainers listed in the available games.

Hi there, Due to low participation, we are phasing out our Maintainer games.

We certainly want to reintroduce a maintenance game in the future but we want to make sure it is as beneficial as possible to our players who have hit their goal weight and remained focus on maintaining that weight. We are trying to reevaluate what is most valuable and helpful for our players in their journey. We would love to hear your thoughts on what you find the most rewarding and helpful in a game or a tool for maintenance, so we can factor that into how this gets implemented in the future.

In the meantime, you may be interested in using the DietBet membership as an accountability tool. DietBet Membership gives you access to features that help make your game more fun and boost your odds of success. This includes:

Weekly Progress Weigh-ins that keep you motivated and enter you to win that week's Progress Prize. Progress Prizes are exciting prizes randomly given to DietBet Members who submitted a Progress Weigh-in during the previous week. The prizes vary from week to week and are meant to reward Members for holding themselves accountable with regular weigh-ins.

A guided goal-setting journal to help you track your progress
