App is designed to promote responsible gaming:
Peer to Peer: Because FantasyRules is a peer to peer on-line contest it requires that another qualified and vetted player must accept the contest which limits the number of contest a player can enter. This makes if very difficult for a player to be involved in placing or accepting multiple or sequential contest in a short period of time where losses can mount quickly.
Cancel Contests: Players can also cancel a contest at any time before the other player who was sent a contest accepts it. This gives a player the ability to change his mind once a contest is sent.
Reality Checks: Players will be able to at any time see how much they have won or loss , per fantasy sport.
