Tournaments are themed competitions between 64 to 256 pets that are grouped by Level, Pet Type, and minimum Cuteness Score requirements.   Tournaments are single elimination competitions where winners advance to the next round. Use your gold coins to enter a Tournament. The Winners of each round win prize tickets to use in the Pet Parade prize store.

Level-up to unlock Tournaments and Prizes

level up to unlock tournaments and prizes

A pet parent’s level determines which Tournaments you can enter and what prizes and discounts you can win.  Whenever another user votes for your pet in a face off or sends your pet a treat after each voting round, you have the opportunity to collect “experience points” or “XP” for short.  Collecting XP allows you to “level-up” to a higher level. Levels apply to pet parents rather than pets.  

Win Prize Tickets to spend in the Prize Store

Spend tickets in Prize Store
