DietBet Referees

About Our Referee Team

Our Referee team is one of the best things about DietBet. They’ve been known to work 17-hour days, spend hours solving a problem for one player, and come up with brilliant new ways we can better serve our community. Anyone who has emailed support@dietbet.com can vouch for their dedication, intelligence, and sensitivity.

They are, in short, rock stars.

Plus, many of our Referees are former or current DietBet players, giving them a special perspective on how to provide weight loss support to the community. This support, coupled with extensive training and impeccable attention to detail, help our Referees ensure fairness for all players and bring our online weight loss games to life.
