Step 3: Click Withdraw and enter the amount you would like to withdraw. You will receive a confirmation from Star11fantasy on your registered email id.
You can withdraw money only from the winnings balance once your Star11fantasy account is verified. You cannot withdraw the cash amount but you can use it to join more contests and win more. This verification is a one-time process which doesn’t need to be repeated unless you wish to make changes to your account. We need you to provide the following bank account details: Name of the bank, Name of the branch, Name of the account holder, account no. and IFSC code. Once your account is verified, you can withdraw the desired amount (min. of Rs.500 and max. of Rs.2,00,000 at a time) and it will be deposited into your bank account within 7 working days.

Once you get a bank account in your name, you can use the same to get your Star11fantasy account verified and place your withdrawal requests.
It’s been over 7 working days but I’ve still not received the withdrawal in my bank account?
Please make sure that you are checking the same bank account which you have submitted during your bank verification. The payout entry in your bank statement.
In case you do not receive the payout post 7 working days of the withdrawal request, your withdrawal may have been rejected by your bank. The most common reason for the rejection may be an incorrect account number, wrong IFSC code, NRI account etc.
In case there has been a rejection, we have you covered! We’ll reverse the money back into your Star11fantasy account so that you can update your details and place a new withdrawal request again.
Please write to us using the link below mentioning the withdrawal request date and the amount.

When do the scores get updated?
Points are usually updated every few minutes! However, when the match ends, the status changes from ‘In Progress’ to ‘Waiting For Review’. In this time, the final points including your team’s total and your rank are updated. Winners are declared and winnings are distributed only after our team verifies the final points. This process may take up to 2 hours. In certain cases, it could take longer. After the winners are declared, the match status will be ‘Completed’.

If any of the contest is not filled with the required number of participants or if the real match is abandoned the contest will be cancelled and we will refund the entry fee if joined to your Star11fantasy account within maximum 24hrs.
If contests have been cancelled for the below reasons, or any other reasons as may be notified from time to time, the entry fees of all participants in such match will be refunded in full within 24hrs.
If the real match is abandoned, all contests for the match will be cancelled and the entry fees will be refunded in full within 24 hrs. This includes scenarios where the real match is abandoned without a single ball being bowled, as well as where the match is abandoned after it has started.
If the match has a result (i.e., ends in a win to either team or a tie but not a “no result”) even if not played out fully, we will announce the results of the contests as per normal, except where a result or progression of a team in the tournament is purely decided by:
the results of a Super Over or Bowl Out,
the toss of a coin,
prior results between or relative standings of the teams in the tournament, or
any methodology other than those envisaged by the official score revision rules (e.g., Duckworth Lewis Stern) applicable to weather-affected matches in the particular tournament.

Our dedicated team manually verifies the Star11fantasy scorecard with our live feed to ensure that the points and scores are correctly updated after every match. This procedure can sometimes take a relatively long time. Only after we are sure that all points and scores are accurate, the final points are updated and winners are declared.

Name on the PAN Card does not match the name on the bank account You can withdraw money from your Star11fantasy account only to your own bank account. Hence, the name on the PAN Card and bank account need to match.
IFSC code provided in the bank details is incorrect/belongs to a different bank branch than the one mentioned for verification purposes. If you provide the wrong IFSC code, your money could be transferred to account belonging to someone else. So, make sure you enter the correct code. You can find the IFSC code in your cheque-book, passbook or bank statements. If you are not sure, please contact your bank to get the correct code.
The documents uploaded by you are not clear/visible. Our experts are humans after all! Please help them by uploading documents where all the details are clearly visible so that they can verify your details quickly.
Bank account number entered in verification request does not match with account number appearing on the uploaded proof. Please ensure that you enter the exact bank account number in the verification request, as it appears on the bank account proof.
