The Sporting Life Monthly Tipping Game is integrated with UK & Ireland Racecards and works as follows:
- Each new Monthly Game begins on the 1st, running until the end of the month.
- It's free to play and each month all registered users are issued with 300 virtual credits
- Players can bet 20 credits each day, with 5 credits being the smallest amount they can stake so this allows them to place up to 4 tips per day. Choose whether you want it to be an each way or a win bet.
- All each ways bets will be settled at 1/4 odds for a place with the exception of non-handicaps with 8 or more runners.
- Each player must stake at least 50 points per week (weeks running 1st to 7th, 8th to 14th, 15th to 21st and 22nd to end of each month). If that amount is not staked in the defined week an equal amount is deducted from their score
- To be with a chance of winning a monthly prize members must select at least 20 tips that run in any month.
- To be eligible for a prize, members cannot place more than ten 20pt win bets on horses with an SP of 16/1 or bigger in any one month.
- The Maximum profit that can be made off any one virtual bet is 500pts.
- Credits are staked by simply selecting a race from the race cards and choosing a horse and amount to be staked
- Races close 5 minutes before official starting time
- Competitors who select the winner will have their stake multiplied by the horse's starting price and added to their total score
- Competitors who select a loser will have their stake subtracted from their total score
- Competitors who select a non-runner will have their stake returned to them once the non-runner has updated on the site.
- From 01/03/14 there will be a change to the "Starred Comments Bonus System", the new rule is a £5 free bet for any member that manages to gain 10 starred comments or a £10 free bet for any member that manages to gain 20 starred comments in the month.
- Scores are updated once the results come in
- All results settled on Rules of Racing
- In the event of any dispute Sporting Life's decision is final
- In the event of a tie the winner is deemed to be the player that has picked the most winners. In the unlikely event of a tie at that stage we will provide both with equal prize.
- A new monthly league will begin at the start of the next month.
- Fame and perhaps fortune await our Top Tipsters!
Best of luck,
Sporting Life Tipping Game Team
