Weight Wager is the First Live, National, Smart-Scale Weight Loss Game Show
Imagine, each morning, thousands of American weight loss competitors stepping onto their wireless
smart-scales as they sync their weight loss data into a national, real-time Weight Loss Leaderboard.
Competitors make a weekly bet on themselves that they will lose weight. Those that go up, pay that bet. Those that go down, win a share of that money. A witty Health Professional hosts the live-streamed
game show while announcing winnings and giving tips on nutrition, weight loss and exercise.
HOW IT WORKS
Make a Weekly Money Bet on Yourself
That You Will Lost Weight.
Choose Your Game Duration
Between 4 - 24 weeks
You will join a weight loss room with other users
who are betting at that same $ amount.
Choose Your Weekly Wager Amount:
$10, $25, $50, $100, or $250
This amount will be locked in for the entire game. You have to weigh-in daily, but your weigh-in only counts for money on every Monday throughout the game. If you gain weight or stay the same weight each Monday, you pay the amount above that you wagered. If you lose weight from each Monday to Monday, you win a share of the money from those who gained weight and had to pay in. If you don't weigh-in at all on Mondays, you pay your wager amount.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Weight Wager?
Users bet a weekly wager amount against themselves that they will go down in weight from Monday to Monday during the duration of the game. Users then choose between 4-52 weeks that they want to compete. Users who go down in weight win a share of money from the users who went up in weight and have to pay up.
How do users get paid?
Within 1-2 weeks after the game is over, users will receive their earnings through the payment service that they registered with at the beginning of the game. Users will also pay through that same service when they gain weight after their Monday weigh-in.
Why should I make a Weight Wager?
Because it can make you more successful at losing weight regardless of which diet or exercise program you are pursuing. A variety of recent academic research demonstrates that financial incentives triple the effectiveness of weight loss programs. WeightWager applies those academic principles to make you more successful at weight loss. WeightWager helps you establish a clear goal that has a significant positive impact on your health. WeightWager also helps you establish a clear timeline to achieve that goal.
What is the most I can win?
This depends on if you lose weight weekly and how much you decided to bet weekly. All winnings are based on a share of how much was generated by those who went up in weight.
How do I weigh-in?
You weigh in using either your wifi/bluetooth connected smart scale or with your Android or Apple smartphone.
Can I participate in more than one challenge at the same time?
Absolutely. You can participate in up to 3 challenges at the same time! So double-up, even triple-up to maximize your winnings for the same weight loss!
Do I have to weigh in daily?
Yes. Weigh in daily. The day that your weigh in counts for money is on Mondays. Your Monday weigh in is compared to the previous Monday and if you went up in weight you pay your wagered amount. If you went down in weight, you get a share of what others who went up in weight paid into the pot.

WeightWager does not withhold any of the winnings for taxes. The IRS has set a $600 threshold for reporting of contest prizes/winnings. We will request your tax information only if you win a prize greater than the IRS threshold. If your net proceeds are less than the IRS threshold, we will not collect your tax information. You should, of course, ask your tax advisor for advice as to whether your specific winnings are taxable (we make no representations).
