WHAT IS AN OVERLAY? An overlay is the term used to describe when a site has offered a guaranteed prizepool, yet does not have enough money from the entry fees of the participants taking part to meet this guarantee.  An example would be a Daily Fantasy Football site offering a guaranteed prizepool of £1000 for a competition that has a £10 entry fee.  If the contest only has 50 entrants then the value of these entries will be £500 if no fee for hosting the game is deducted. The site has committed to guaranteeing £1000 in prizes so they will need to make up the shortfall which in the case above would be £500.  Overlays provide value for players as the value of their entry is increased proportionally by the shortfall amount.
