Pickem Pool Settings Page

Below is the Settings page for one of our pickem football pools (the settings page for pro and college football pickem pools is identical). There are numerous configuration options that go beyond just a standard pickem pool, such as the key games option where players can place a checkmark by games they are more confident in and win additional points. There is also the 'jackpot' setting that allows a percentage of weekly player fees to go towards a pot that triggers when a player correctly picks 12 games (configurable) during the week. Similar to a lottery, This popular setting serves to keeps your league's players interested throughout the season, especially those who may have fallen too far behind the season leaders.
