Yes, as a Money Player you will have the opportunity to play in as many free training duels as you wish. Practice Players can also participate in free duels by using the free practice money that GameDuell provides for them.
We differentiate duels by their number of participants, entry fees, winnings and duration.
- Two Player Duel: Two players participate in a duel and play against one another. The player that began the duel sets the entry fee. The possible winnings are automatically calculated from the sum of the entry fees. The duel lasts as long as it takes for the two players to reach a result.
- Multiplayer Duel: Up to five players can participate in a multiplayer duel. The player that began the duel sets the entry fee. The possible winnings are automatically calculated from the sum of the entry fees. The duel lasts as long as it takes for all of the players to reach a result.
- Mini-Leagues: In a mini-league, as many as 12 players compete against each other. Each player will play against each other player once. Whoever has the most victories wins. If there is a tie, then the winner will be the one with the most points.
A duel is generally active until an opponent finds it and plays the game. If no opponent accepts the duel within two days, then the duel is automatically ended.
- Two player and Multiplayer Duels: : Two player and multiplayer duels are automatically ended after two days. If you have already participated, you can find the exact end time within your account information. To check this, log into your account and click on the "My GameDuell" tab. Click on "Open Duels" and you will find an overview of all duels and the exact time at which they will end.
If time runs out before the necessary number of participants has played, then each participant's money will be automatically refunded. You can review this by checking your account statement. To do so, please log into your account and click on the "My GameDuell" tab. From beneath the link "Account Statement," you can select an active time frame and see all transactions that took place.
Please note that this can take up to 48 hours.
You and another player clicked on the duel at the same time, but the other player was a split-second faster. In this case, the entry fee will not be deducted from your account. If this happens, simply enter another duel or begin a fresh one.
No, you can only participate in a multiplayer duel once.
GameDuell deducts a transaction fee from every money duel to cover game development and player account maintenance. The prize after selecting duel type and entry fee is the final prize after transaction fee.

The number of duels you can open at GameDuell is limited. This is dependent on the number of duels a player already has open in a particular game and on the total number of open duels by all players in that game.
This limit prevents an unnecessarily high number of open duels which would not finish due to a lack of opponents.
