What Is Fliff? Information About Fliff Social Sportsbook
Fliff operates a social and sweepstakes sports gaming platform. Fliff has a similar look and feel to the regulated sportsbooks available throughout much of the United States, but offers a free-to-play experience.
Read on for all the details about Fliff, including how to play, which markets are available on the sportsbook and payment options.
What is Fliff?
Fliff features a sportsbook-like interface but in a free-to-play format where picks are made with virtual currency and not real cash.
Aside from playing with virtual currency instead of cash, the site operates much like a sportsbook but with an added social layer. Players are able to create their own personas in the app as Fliff creates a unique 3D avatar for each user, with all of their picks displayed on their profiles. Winning players will progress through levels and move up the leaderboards where they will win badges that attach to their profiles.
Fliff features many of the same sports, markets, bet types and even same-game parlays that US bettors have come to grow familiar with over the past five years.
How Fliff works
Fliff provides a sportsbook-like interface, with similar underlying mechanics aside from the part where actual cash is bet. Instead, according to Fliff’s website, this is a social gaming experience that includes “promotional games and loyalty rewards to elevate the experience.”
There are two ways to play: Fliff Coins or Fliff Cash – more on the difference between those later. After choosing which Fliff currency to play with, users can make selections on pregame lines, combine picks for parlays or same-game parlays, or make in-play picks while the game is going on.
Fliff reserves the right to exclude any participant from their sweepstakes who is not recreational. In sportsbook language, that means the sharps can be banned from the book.
Currency: Fliff Coins, Fliff Cash and XP
Fliff offers users 5,000 in free coins daily with another 1,000 available every two hours. Fliff Coins provide the opportunity to move up leaderboards and player levels, earn achievement badges, gain followers, and accrue XP, which can be redeemed for gift cards or more Coins.
Playing with Fliff Cash is more like a standard sportsbook. Fliff Cash can be obtained daily as a login bonus, as a promotion when buying Fliff Coins or through other free methods. It cannot be directly purchased, unlike Fliff Coins.
Fliff Cash is treated as sweepstakes entries but can be redeemed for real cash prizes. All Fliff Cash must be played through at odds of -300 or longer before it can be redeemed, though Fliff can at any point decide Fliff Cash needs to be played through more than once before redemption.
XP are loyalty points that can be accumulated in a number of different ways. XP can be earned by making picks, completing challenges, or referring friends, and then can be redeemed for gift cards (from a variety of major brands including Airbnb, Uber, GrubHub, Amazon, and many others) at a ratio of 100 XP = $1.
Fliff deposits and withdrawals
There are no options to deposit cash into the app. Fliff Coins have no monetary value and can be purchased but not redeemed or converted to real money. However, eligible users can obtain Fliff Cash as part of the sweepstakes which can be redeemed after the previously mentioned conditions are met. The Fliff Cash redemption process is a similar process to the withdrawal process of most US sportsbooks.
As stated, there are no options to deposit funds directly into a Fliff account. Since Fliff offers a social and sweepstakes game, its product can only be used with in-game currency.
The purchase process is similar to other social casinos. The Fliff shop offers six options starting at 5,000 Fliff Coins for $1, up to 1 million Fliff Coins for $99.99.
Fliff Cash can be redeemed once the currency has been played through at -300 or longer odds at least once.
The minimum prize amount is $50 with the max set at $5,000 for all three payment options:
- Instant bank transfer, including banks like Chase and Wells Fargo
- Standard bank transfer
Users cannot be located in the state of Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Tennessee or Washington to redeem Fliff Cash.
The states of Florida, New York and Rhode Island are limited in how much Fliff can pay out during “any period of the Sweepstakes.” At the time of writing, the sweepstakes period was a month long.
This means a maximum of $5,000 can be redeemed in Florida and New York. Rhode Islanders are limited to $500.
Fliff can also limit Fliff Cash payouts of up to $1,000 weekly.
Fliff account verification
Verifying your identity on Fliff follows similar Know Your Customer (KYC) processes as regulated US sportsbooks and online casinos.
Users are asked for their name, address, and social security number to begin the process. A picture of a state ID and selfie photo check is also required to redeem a prize.

The sportsbook offers all major US sports including the MLB, NBA, NFL and NHL. There are also multiple international leagues for baseball, basketball, soccer, tennis and more.
Fliff customers will find many familiar options on the sportsbook including moneyline, point spreads, and game and team props.
