How do I register for a tournament?

Registering for a tournament is easy! Choose the tournament you want to take part in and in the General tab, click on “Register now”.

Once registered, the “Start my game” button will be available to start the tournament. You are not obliged to start the tournament straight away. You can start whenever you want as long as the tournament is ongoing. Good luck!

What is a “Rebuy” and an “Add-on”?

A Rebuy allows you to start a new game to get onto the leaderboard again.

An Add-on allows you to buy time or game credit. This can be interesting if you haven’t had enough time to use all your credit or if you don’t have any credit left but you have time left.

How long does a tournament last for?

A game in a tournament lasts from 10 to 15 minutes. After this time, the game will be interrupted, even if you still have credit. The tournament will also end if you have no more credit but there is time left.

How can I get onto a tournament leaderboard?

When you take part in a tournament the points won during a game will determine your position in the leaderboard.

The leaderboard isn’t final until the tournament has ended.

Can I appear several times in the leaderboard?

Yes. During some tournaments, you can get several Rebuys. These allow you to start a new game and therefore appear on the leaderboard several times. To know how many Rebuys you can get, check the tournament’s General tab.

What can I win during a tournament?

Depending on the tournament, you can get different types of winnings like prizes or even cash. To find out, check the tournament’s General tab.

I’ve won a tournament! When will I receive my winnings?

Well done! Your winnings are automatically credited to your account 10 to 30 minutes after the end of a tournament. If you have won a prize, this will be sent to you within a month.

For big prizes, you will be contacted by a member of our Prizes team with all the necessary information.

If you haven’t received your winnings or if you don’t hear from our team, please contact our customer service.

Can I take part in tournaments from my smartphone or tablet?

Of course! Our website is perfectly adapted to all your mobile devices. Therefore, you can register and take part in tournaments from your smartphone or tablet by using our online website.

What happens if there is a tie in a tournament?

When you get the same number of points as one or several other players, you are put in the same place on the leaderboard and the winnings are shared between you.

I’m not able to take part in a tournament. What should I do?

If you aren't able to take part in a tournament, there a several possible reasons:

  • You have insufficient funds. Make a deposit, then try again.
  • You have activated a self-exclusion. You must wait until the end of the period set to be able to play on our website again.
  • You have already taken part in this tournament. Depending on the tournament, you can only take part once or twice. To find out, see if the Rebuy option is available under the tournament’s General tab. If you have the right to 2 Rebuys, this means you can take part in the tournament twice and also appear twice in the leaderboard. Want more? At Circus, we have several monthly, weekly and daily tournaments so that you are never bored!
  • The tournament hasn’t started yet. Wait until the tournament starts to take part.
