Step 4: Contest rewards

Contest Rewards let you trigger a Reward for players based on their leaderboard rank. Rewards can only be created within a Contest. Setting a Reward is optional. You can create multiple rewards in a Contest. 

To create a Reward, click Add and fill out the rewards information as in the screen example above. 

To create a reward that will be issued to the player you need to fill out the details. Information like Name and Description is for the player to see when he or she receives the reward. Other information like Rank, Value, expires in, etc. configures the Reward.
