Frequently Asked Questions

Combining the aspects of fantasy sports and survivor contests, STATHERO is a first of it’s kind fantasy sports platform. Competing in online contests across a variety of professional sports, our players only competition is STATHERO itself, not the other players in a contest. Our Patent-Pending Payout Model allows our players to earn back entry fees and more by beating the game and surviving to the next round of each contest.

  • STATHERO accepts all major credit/debit cards including Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
  • Players will be able to choose between Direct Deposit, Paper Check, or Electronic Check for payout for all of StatHero’s contests and withdrawals.

Currently, STATHERO offers contests in MLB, NBA, and NFL. Each contest choice is catered to how many teams you want to choose from. StatHero offers: Full League, Conference, and Divisional Survivor Contests. Whichever you choose will determine the amount of team choices you and StatHero will be able to choose from.

StatHero will offer Single and Double Elimination Contests at the beginning of each season. These contests are ‘winner take all’ and the total payout will go the last remaining survivor. These contests will not have round by round payouts. All prizes for these contests will be paid at the end of the contest. These contests will resemble a real survivor elimination contest.

STATHERO receives 25% commission on all contests. This commission structure benefits the player because this is a ONE time fee.  STATHERO is a multi-day fantasy platform.  No matter how many days you survive in a contest, you will not be charged any more than one fee.  This is a big difference vs playing a DFS contest where you get charged a commission every day you play.  On top of this, every round you beat STATHERO and people are eliminated, you will continue to win money.

No. Your team selected does not have to win their real world game in order for you to survive to the next round. Your players just need to have more points than STATHERO at the end of the day. Keep in mind, if you tie STATHERO in a contest you will be eliminated. All ties vs STATHERO will lose. This is to prevent players from picking the same team as STATHERO.

This revolutionary payout structure is something that has never been seen before. For information on StatHeros’ payout model, view the link here.
