Skillz Currency Modes

You can monetize your Skillz-integrated game in two different ways. One way is to enable both cash competitions and in-app virtual currency competitions. The other way is to enable ONLY virtual currency competitions. We’ve laid out the differences for you in the table below. (Keep in mind that you won’t be able to change this selection later, unless you contact us directly).
