    As an exercise I deliberately played as badly as possible in WGT's October best of Water Holes Sweeps CTTH and scored a massive 2640 points which currently has me in 344th place - which surprised me as I thought that 1000s of people would be playing in it...

    Well I don't think too many people play that one because of the many chances to lose a ball in the water.

    My question would be rather "how many people actually play WGT altogether?". Probably much much less than whatever million or billion WGT claims.

    There is a tournament page that lists all the tournaments. You can click on any of them and see the full leaderboard and how many have entered and played.

    Not really. If there are more than 250 players entered you will only see the top 250. Many of the top tourneys like the Virtual U.S. Open qualifier have many more than 250 entries and the leader board will only show the top 250. Most of the other tourneys have less than 250 so you see all entries on the leaderboard.

    "Dead On" Question........ My guess ...Less than 10,000  Probably not that high either...

    I play a TON of skins games (look at my history) And in the 3 years I've been on WGT I would say I have played with 99.9% of the "Skinner" crowd I know almost everyone that skins by name and there are maybe 100 skinners MAYBE...

    So you gonna tell me out of a million players actively playing WGT that only a 100 or less are willing to play skins for pennies?    Not Likely!!

    Pardon me, but you'd have to try harder! ;)

    I just played it as a FFTH (*), scored 10,949 points and ended up as #430. Thus, your observation is correct that there are only a few playing this Sweeps, probably due to the watery ball graves.

    At Valhalla, scoring high was more difficult. I scored only 6,031 but became 5454th - quite a difference!

    (*) Farthest From The Hole: Aim in the opposite direction and shoot with driver as far as you can ;)
    Be sure to use a Starter ball!
    It was quite popular here a while ago.

    In Australia we are ineligible for prizes from the sweeps so no point playing really, and possibly (to answer JD’s post) , few play skins because most would play WGT on mobile now, where skins are unavailable, playing in coin rooms rarely do we come across players we have played before in the same month. In ready go’s and weekly tournaments perhaps a few hundred regulars and a lot more (like me) irregulars, though I have been playing them a bit more of late. But all in all, I would agree that regular WGT players would number far less than WGT claims, but as long as the numpties keep shelling out big credits for slow meter balls WGT will still be making big bucks.

    This numptie buys the slow meter balls because my reaction time gets slow because of age. Slow meter balls cost me no real cash so wgt make $0 off of me. Thanks for the 2 credit videos. Cheers
