$250 USD Prize For Server Hosts & $50 USD Prize For Players (45 Supported Games)
May's prizes are $50 USD for the Player Prize and $250 USD for the Server Prize (they will be sent via PayPal).


What is Capture The Prize?

Capture The Prize is a FREE to join and FREE to win monthly contest where players who play on any servers can win prizes just for playing (no skill required). Server hosts can also win a prize by referring the most active players. Servers also benefit from increased player traffic as well as rewarding your existing player base with the chance to win prizes. 45 multiplayer games and all mods are supported (Counter-Strike: Global Offense, Team Fortress 2, Garrys Mod, DayZ, Minecraft, Battlefield Series, Quake Series, Unreal Tournament Series, etc.). Game Servers do not need to install any plugins. We just need your Server IP, Port, Query Port (If applicable) and game type.


Player Prize

All players who have played in any of the servers on the Global Server List or Personal Server List for a combined 4 points or more will be entered into the drawing and a winner will be chosen at random. Players get points every 15 minutes. The more points a player has, the higher their odds of winning. Players can also create their own personal server list with up to 24 servers in all supported games/mods.


Referral Prize

Server hosts who referred the most active players (a player who activated their account, sent their SteamID and accumulated at least 4 points) will win one of these. You get a Unique URL and when a user clicks this URL, it takes them to the register form and credits that registration as being referred by you. Even if the user doesnt sign up right away, it creates a cookie that lasts for 1 month so if they sign up later, you still get credited. There are also a large variety of banner images available that you can use on your website (found here)



The odds of you or your players winning is very high. At the time of this thread post, there are 152 Players, 64 Public Servers & 4 Personal Servers. In addition, the more points a player has, the higher their odds of winning. This was made evident when the randomly picked winner of February's player prize won because he had the highest number of points. In January, the randomly picked player winner did not have the highest number of points. In addition the Server Op won with 31 active player referrals because no other Server Ops referred any players. That's a guaranteed win for $250 USD!


How it Works

After you register on the site (verify your email and login), you click the "Sign in through the steam" button. Steam will not reveal your username or password to; rather your SteamID will be shared. This website like many sites on the internet is funded by advertisements; that's how the prizes are funded.


Server Operators (Server Hosts)

All new servers start out as "Standard Servers". Standard servers net players 1 point every 15 minutes. Once you have referred 50 active players (over any time period), all your current servers listed will automatically be upgraded to a "Premium Server". Premium servers net players 2 points every 15 minutes (and as a result will generally get more traffic). Click here for more information.

Winner Testimonials

Was a completely hassle-free and amazing experience! All you had to do was play games for a chance to win money! I see absolutely no reason why any player or community owner wouldn't want to sign up Big Grin

My experience [sic] "with" Capture the Prize was great. All I did was tell everyone in my community to sign up and play on our servers. The next thing you know, I won! Easy $250. Big Grin I'm definitely going to try and go for premium so everyone on there can get double points. Thanks CTP!
