How does the Double Up Contest type work?

A Double Up Contest type pays nearly ½ of the entrants out in the contest. In a Double Up Contest, the number of winning places will be clearly labeled, and players who finish in a prize-winning place split the winnings evenly, doubling up their entry fee.

As an example only: You enter an NFL $25 Double Up Contest, pay an entry fee of $25, and submit a lineup. This Double Up Contest allows a total of 3218 other players to join. This contest pays out $50.00 to players who make it to the position of 1st  to 1400th. If your lineup makes it to the position of 1st to 1400th within the contest, you will win the prize payout of $50.00.

What does the green G on this contest mean?

The green G ((G)Guaranteed Prize Pool) stands for Guaranteed Prize Pool. Contests with guaranteed prize pools will run even if the contest does not fill, and the entirety of the prize pool will still be awarded to the winning players.

Can I enter a Double Up contest more than once?

It depends on the contest. If a Double Up Contest allows for multiple entries to the contest, you will see the multi-entry ((M)Multi-entry) icon in the contest details.
