With tipping set to return, I was wondering if you have any ideas on the terms and conditions of entry. We could simply go with what we've had for the past 3 years (see below)?
Terms and Conditions of Entry
Entry is free, however to be eligible for a prize, tippers must have a minimum of 10 posts on the forums by the completion of the AFL and NRL seasons.
Tipping Competition Prizes
Prizes will be given to the participants who meeting the above criteria, finish 1st, 2nd and 3rd in either the AFL or NRL tipping competitions. The three tippers who have the highest total number of correctly selected winning teams in all 22 rounds of the AFL season plus finals or all 26 rounds of the NRL season plus finals for each respective competition, will be eligible for the prizes on offer. The prizes on offer for each competition are as follows:
1st Prize - $175.00 cash + $100.00 Rebel Sport gift voucher
2nd Prize - $50.00 cash + $50.00 Rebel Sport gift voucher
3rd Prize - $25.00 cash + $30.00 Rebel Sport gift voucher
Tipping Competition Rules
Entering tips for each game will close at the time indicated in the upcoming games list. If your tips are not placed before the close of each game, you will receive no points for that game. Please do not ask for your tips to be entered after the set game time listed has passed. If you did not enter your tips then that is bad luck. Subscribing to the footy tipping reminders will ensure you do not forget to enter your tips. To subscribe to these reminders, simply click on the Subscribe to the Footy Tipping Reminder link located under the leader boards. The allocation of points is as follows:
1 point for each correct tip.
1 bonus point for a correct tip in the match of the round.
0 points given for an incorrect tip.
0 points given if there is a draw.
Determination of Winners
If at the end of the tipping competition two (2) or more tippers have the same amount of points a count back will occur. A count back will rank tippers according to the frequency with which they selected the most winning teams in a round over the 22 rounds plus finals of the AFL season and over the 26 rounds plus finals of the NRL season.
An elimination process based solely on that count back will occur. The count back will firstly identify the tipper(s) who most frequently tipped 8 winning teams from 8, then 7 winning teams from 8 , then 6 winning teams from 8 and so on (down to and including 1 winning team from 8 if required) until tippers are determined to be ranked higher than all of the others. All entries taken up in the calculation will be based on a total of 8 matches in a round regardless of whether 8 teams were selected by the tipper. If this fails to rank the tippers for the three prizes on offer in each competition, each tipper will be entered into a draw. The order each tipper is drawn is where they will be ranked accordingly. This outcome of this will be final and no further correspondence will occur.
Claiming of Prizes
Cash prizes can be claimed once each of the AFL & NRL grand finals are completed. Payment can be processed via either direct deposit into a nominated bank account or money order through Australia Post. Gift vouchers will be sent via post.
Prizes must be claimed within 4 weeks of the respective competition close and all monetary prizes will be paid in Australia Dollars (AUD).
