To avoid last-minute cancellation of contests for unfilled spots. 😎 Oct 22, 2020, onwards, all public cash contests with 6 or more members will continue as usual, even if they're unfilled.
This is how it works:
✅ 6-10 member contests, where 66% (or 2/3rd) of the total spots are filled, will continue without getting cancelled.
✅ 11+ member contests where 75% (or 3/4th) of the total spots are filled will continue without getting cancelled.
✅ In both these scenarios, the Prize Pool will remain the same. 🥳
E.g., If a 10-member contest with a prize pool of ₹5,000 has only 7 contestants, the contest will continue, and the prize pool will still be ₹5,000.
Here are some more examples, just for reference:
