How does Bonus Cash work, and how can I get more of it?

Bonus Cash can be used to enter tournaments and compete for real cash prizes. You cannot withdraw Bonus Cash, and your Bonus Cash is forfeited whenever you make a withdrawal.

When you enter a match, you typically pay the entry fee with 90% real cash and 10% Bonus Cash. However, if you do not have enough real cash to cover 90% of the entry fee, a larger portion of Bonus Cash will be used.

When you win, your entry fee is refunded the same way you paid in (split between real and Bonus Cash). However, the winnings on top of your entry fee are 100% real cash.

How do I get more Bonus Cash?

A great way to earn more Bonus Cash is by referring friends to Skillz. To do so, open your favorite Skillz app and open the slide out menu on the right. Tap on Free Bonus Cash and then tap SHARE. You can send your unique invite link via text, email, or any other messaging app. If your friend uses your invite link to make their first-ever deposit into Skillz, you will both receive Bonus Cash!

Certain Trophies award Bonus Cash prizes. From the Skillz home screen, open the slide-out menu and tap Trophies to see your Trophy progress. Once a trophy is completed, tap “Claim Prize” to receive your reward.

Limited-Time Bonus Cash Offers

We sometimes advertise promotional Bonus Cash offers via email or through in-app promotions. Be sure to subscribe to Skillz emails to stay up-to-date with the latest special offers. To subscribe, open your favorite Skillz app and open the slide-out menu on the right.
