I had to pay a $35.00 bet plus a $5.00 administrative fee to start playing. I lost my required weight and won back a whopping $38.18. I PAID THEM to play!
This is a money making scam. I guess it's an okay system for those that want to pay for accountability and access to a support group, but they market the system as if you actually have a chance to make some money from your efforts and that is NOT the case. The only ones really making any money is DietBet and the game sponsors. On top of the $5 they get from the hundreds of thousands of players, they also get like 25% of each pot, which is a ridiculous amount of money for what the game offers.
I signed up for a second game a week after my first. At this point, I just hope I break even and get back every dollar I paid so I can be done with them. There are plenty of support systems out there that are free and offer plenty more. Look for one that doesn't want to make money off of you.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I signed up for the $100 game by accident, I thought I pressed on the $25 game but after I signed up I saw that they took $100 dollars. I am SO upset about it because it's SO much money, and it's not worth it!
