      12. For each Contest in the Cash Contest Format, we take a small amount from the pot on a table, as a fee from the winner of the Contest (“Rake”). The value of the Rake is subject to the nature of the game. Presently the Rake for poker is between 2.5% (two point five percent) to 5% (five percent), for casual games is between 10% (ten percent) to 15% (fifteen percent), for trivia games is 10% (ten percent) and for rummy is between 10% (ten percent) to 15% (fifteen percent).

      14. The App currently offers the Game, Poker, as a Cash Contest. For, this Game, in addition to the rules of the Contest available here, you should note that:
        1. The big blind and small blind will remain constant on each table and will not change during the time of game play; and
        2. Bet will mean the bet placed by you based on your assessment of the round and your overall position in the Contest. The Game will move forward only when all the other Players on the table have placed the bet. Each Player is required to either match or raise the bet, otherwise the Player is be required to fold and lose the particular round of the Game
      15. For other Games such as Rummy, Trivia or Carrom in the Cash Contests the Player Stack will be represented as points. In addition to the rules of the Game, you should note that:
        1. The Contests will be played out as a ‘race to zero’, meaning, the objective in each of such Contests will be to reduce the value of the Player Stack to zero. This can be achieved by making valid sets or sequences, answering questions correctly or potting the coins, in accordance with the rules of the Game.
        2. The Winner will be the first player on the table to reach 0 (zero), the winnings are calculated as the value of the total points on the table multiplied with the loss of value in the Player Stack of all other Players on the table, subject to deductions as per Mega Policies. By way of illustration:

        For example, in a 4 player Trivia contest with 1 point = Rs. 0.1 conversion, the players’ scores after 4 questions are:

        Player A: 0 points,

        Player B: 10 points,

        Player C: 20 points,

        Player D: 40 points.

        At this point, as Player A has reached 0 score, the round would end and winnings will be distributed based on the point to INR conversion. Each player’s winnings and loses will be following manner,

        Player A: wins Rs.7*(1-Rake)

        Player B: loses Rs.1 (10points x Rs.0.1)

        Player C: loses Rs.2 (20points x Rs.0.1)

        Player D: loses Rs.4 (40points x Rs.0.1)

  8. Passes

    1. We love having you on-board the App and to get you started, we may provide you with passes (“Passes”) for one or more Games, or for one or more category of Games. Each Pass has a specified notional value and will enable you to join a Contest that has an Entry Fee of an equal or lower value. You will not be allowed to use your Pass for a Cash Based Format or a MTT. The details of any Passes made available to you will be reflected in your Remittance Portfolio.

    3. All Passes have a fixed validity period and will expire if you do not utilize them before their expiry.
    4. When you enter a Contest using a Pass and are awarded Winnings, basis the relevant winning criteria, the value of such Pass will be deducted from such Winnings. If you lose the Contest, then the value of the Pass is to our account. By way of illustration:
      1. Each pass has:
        1. Maximum value. Maximum value. This is the maximum value of a single pass to join a game. To elaborate, if your pass has a maximum value of 10 (ten), you can join contests with entry fees of upto INR. 10 (Indian Rupees Ten). For example, an INR. 5 (Indian Rupees Five) or an INR 10 (Ten) contest, but you cannot use the pass to join an INR 15 (Indian Rupees Fifteen) or INR 20 (Indian Rupees Twenty) contest.
        2. Pass fee.Pass fee is the charge that is deducted from your Winnings if you use a pass to join a room. A pass will give you free access to a room, however, Mega puts up the amount on your behalf. If you lose a game then there is no charge applicable, however, Mega will deduct the pass fee (room joining charge) from your Winnings. Pass fee may vary for each pass and the fee will be mentioned on the pass at the time of exercise.
      2. To help you understand better, if you use a pass of maximum value of 10 (ten) and pass fee of 25% (twenty five percent) and you join a 10 (ten) Gem contest of maximum 2 (two) players.

        Total game pool - 10 + 10 = 20

        Winning amount - Rs 14 (Rupees Fourteen)

        Pass fee applicable = 25% X 10(Room joining cost) = 2.5

        Final game Winnings = 14(game Winnings) - 2.5(Pass fee) = 11.5
