  3. What is the difference between Spoker Rewind and Spoker Live? All Spoker games are offered on both the Live and Rewind platforms. They are played exactly the same way for both formats—with one exception. The difference between the two comes down to how the scoring is done. Spoker Live games use the live data that comes from professional games. It is the same live data that all other daily fantasy sports sites use for their games. Spoker Rewind is unique and can only be found on The statistics that are used to score the games for Spoker Rewind are not from live events. Instead, it uses FANTASY POINT PER GAME AVERAGES. Contestants make decisions in the games based on the averages various athletes put up during a given season. This allows people to play fun fantasy sports games and not have to wait for live events to occur.

Older iPhones that are unable to accommodate iOS updates are not compatible with Spoker.

  17. What do the different colored nameplates mean? Player nameplates are color coded to identify the experience level of each participant in a game. A GREEN nameplate identifies someone who has played in less than 100 total Spoker games, a BLUE nameplate identifies someone who has played in between 100 and 1,000 total Spoker games and a BLACK nameplate identifies someone who has played in more than 1,000 total Spoker games. Games played in the PRACTICE lobby do NOT count towards these totals.
