HOW IT WORKS

PICK A GA​ME

Every Monday, our Weight Wager referees will review your weigh-in video to rule if you reached your 1lb weight loss goal from the previous Monday. We call this 'Money Mondays'. If you went down in weight, you win a share of the money from those who gained weight or didn't reach their -1lb of weight loss that week.

Frequenty Asked Questions

What is Weight Wager? 

Users bet a weekly wager amount against themselves that they will go down in weight from Monday to Monday during the duration of the game. Users then choose between 4-52 weeks that they want to compete. Users who who lost at least -1lb weekly, win a share of money from the users who went up in weight or didn't reach -1lb and have to pay their bet.  

Why do competitors have to lose -1lb weekly to win?

The Weight Wager game is designed to help those who are aspiring to lose weight, lose it quickly. The average American that is trying to lose weight, loses 1-2lbs per week, on average. Therefore competitors in the Weight Wager Game must lose at least -1lb to win the game and money each week. They have 7 days to lose -1lb from Monday to Monday each week. Most Americans will lose up to 2lbs in a week, so 1lb is a very reasonable minimum weight betting target for weight wager players.  

How do users get paid?

Within 1-2 weeks after the game is over, users will receive their earnings through the payment service that they registered with at the beginning of the game. Users will also pay through that same service when they gain weight after their Monday weigh-in.  

Why should I make a Weight Wager?

Because it can make you more successful at losing weight regardless of which diet or exercise program you are pursuing. A variety of recent academic research demonstrates that financial incentives triple the effectiveness of weight loss programs. WeightWager applies those academic principles to make you more successful at weight loss. WeightWager helps you establish a clear goal that has a significant positive impact on your health. WeightWager also helps you establish a clear timeline to achieve that goal.  

What is the most I can win?

This depends on if you lose weight weekly and how much you decided to bet weekly. All winnings are based on a share of how much was generated by those other players who went up in weight.
