You will be sent invitations to register for tournaments and you also have access to enter tournaments through the GLG app. As a member you must register yourself in GLG and make your payment. All payments are required to be paid in advance. Once the payment is processed and if there is room and you meet eligibility requirements, you will be moved from the waitlist into the tournament. Please allow 2 days to process payments. Members get priority into tournaments until the Registration Deadline.
Yes, however, priority is given to members until 7 days prior to the tournament and then non-members can play based on their registration/payment time. All Non-Members must complete the registration form in addition to paying on line.
You must make your payment first - that timing establishes your registration time. After payment is processed, you will remain on the waitlist until after member priority date has passed. If you paid early enough, you meet eligibility requirements, and there is room, you will then be moved into the event by VGT team. If you do not get into the event, you will be refunded.
The VGT Team sends an email to all players advising them the date they can withdraw without penalty. If you withdraw by this date, then you will receive a full refund. If you withdraw later, you will receive a refund less any applicable penalties. The penalties are outlined on the website (here) under About>>Policies and Procedures.
