Frequently Asked Questions
What is Salotto?
Salotto is a mobile application allowing players to connect and play competitive games anywhere at any time.
Can I really Submit my Salotto matches to FargoRate?
Yes, Salotto and FargoRate both believe in the pool industry and that it needs to grow. Allowing this partnership gives players the chance to get better and track progress in a way they otherwise wouldn’t be able to. Below are the submission guidelines and explanation for how this works.
- All matches are submitted regardless of outcome.
- Matches must be time stamped (happens automatically through Salotto)
- Results are publicly viewable through FargoRate.
- Incomplete matches or contested matches will be submitted regardless of status after 48 hours.
- You must be a Salotto Verified Player to Submit to FargoRate, which takes 10 matches played and scored through Salotto.
- Fees Apply, much like league fees go to the legwork on the back end.
- 8-9-10 ball games and matches are all that is considered for submission.
Are the results of all Salotto matches sent to FargoRate?
No. Only matches selected by the host to be “Submitted to FargoRate” by tapping the switch to “On” within the “Create” match menu (“+” sign in the navigation bar).
Do Salotto Pro members still have to pay for FargoRate submitted games?
Yes. One of the parameters of FargoRate submission to preserve the integrity of submitted data is that a payment must be associated with it. Salotto Pro members still enjoy unlimited match creation with no advertising.
What if my match is marked “contested” in Salotto after the match?
When finishing a match, BOTH players must agree to the score and winner/loser. If one player does not finish out their side of the match, it will go into ‘contested’ mode. You will have 48 hours to resolve the issue, which means you both need to agree and confirm the match.
Are they real games of pool?
Yes, Salotto is for people who enjoy playing the actual game of pool in real life, not on a video game format. Salotto aims to connect pool players for physical games of pool in real life.
Is it Free?
Yes. You can use Salotto for free, always finding games on the free version with 1 free host per month. If you find unlimited hosting and ad free usage of Salotto appealing, you can upgrade to Salotto Pro on a monthly or annual membership basis. See upgrading info within the Salotto App for details.
Do I need a code or sponsor to sign up?
Nope! This is just as easy to download as instagram, or any other app. As they say, “All you need to do is go to the App Store or Play Store and download it now!
Why is Salotto needed?
It’s always a little weird to walk into a business with pool tables and try to find someone to play. Salotto is useful whether it’s a night out with friends and someone needs to “win” the table, or if you play often and just want to play new people. Salotto was born out of the need to find players any time, anywhere so they could enjoy this wonderful game more often with new like-minded folks.
Can I host a game in a public place?
Yes! In fact, most places will be glad you do host games in their establishment as it usually means revenue for them as well. Plus having a table in your home isn’t always an option and playing at pool halls is the norm. Remember to reserve a table in a pool hall or bar if you’re hosting a game.
Can I host a game in my own home?
Yes, much like an uber or Lyft Driver who uses their own car, you are encouraged to use your own space to host games. You are welcome to charge for this as well, but that’s up to you and the player to sort out.
Can I host or promote a match between two people?
Absolutely, if you want to see a match between two players, you can host the event anywhere and create a prize pot to lure them in. Remember when creating the match to “turn off” the switch next to “Are You Playing?”. If it’s a big time match, reach out to Salotto at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if they’ll help in some way!
Can I make money using Salotto?
Yes, you can host and charge for your service and can also play your match for a prize pot with cash or digital payment.
What if I forget my login?
You can choose to reset your password using the link on the login page or send us a message through the Contact Submission on the index page.
What is the Salotto Ranking System?
Salotto ranks all players based on the statistics in the application. Salotto then uses these statistics to invite players to invitational tournaments and events. There are also incentives within the app to help you along your path to becoming the player you aim to be!
What does the name mean?
“Salotto” is the Italian term for the English word “Parlor.”
Does Salotto Promote their own games?
Yes! Salotto will host large tournaments for Salotto users, and/or supplement tournaments hosted by Salotto members.
Who owns Salotto?
Salotto was founded by two long-time friends who have played pool together for years. They still play pool and love the game more than ever competing frequently. You can reach out to salotto at email@example.com and talk with them if you’d like!
