Weekend Winner

Weekend Winner.

Win the winnings from a £10 bet.

This FREE competition was another way that thetipper.co.uk devised to potentially make you incredibly wealthy.  Ok, Ok, perhaps I was being wildly optimistic. Some players did make a nice few bob from the competition though, see below.

What you had to do to enter:

1. Open an account with one of the bookmakers promoted on here by clicking on a logo or banner on this site. Beause of various offers you can take advantage of, I personally recommended .

2. E-mail your prediction for one weekend football fixture in the following format:

Shrewsbury  vs  Colchester / 2 / 14 mins (where / 2 / 14 mins means the away team to win and the first goal in the game to be scored in the 14th minute.)  If you fancy the home team to win it's a / 1 / and a draw would be / x / 

Once you put in an entry, that entry applied every week unless you wrote otherwise.  A kind of 'standing order' if you like.

'Standing Orders'  were a way of playing the competition every week without having to do any work.  You were probably  best sending in a reserve team marked RESERVE, just in case your selected team wasn't playing because of international games or somesuch.

Entries should have been sent to: competitions@thetipper.co.uk before 00.01 GMT on Saturday morning. 

The entries were then listed on this page and the winner was the person who picked the longest priced winner.  In the event of a tie the tiebreaker will apply.  If there was no outright winner, i.e. nobody picked a winner, then thetipper.co.uk made a decision based on some arcane formula known only to himself!

The prices of all selections were the prices available from the bookmaker of the week when I put up the entries.

Bookmaker of the week for 16th January 2016 was Coral Icon 50x28.

In the event of any dispute, my, (thetipper.co.uk) decision is final.

The Prize.

The winner every week initially won a £10 bet on any bet that the listed bookmakers accepted the following weekend. The winner then received any profit from that bet if it won.

What's more, every time they had a winner they automatically won another £10 free bet!  So, in theory it was possible for more than one person to win a prize in the competition every week ad infinitum, with them all ending up as millionaires. Well, that was the theory!   

You also needed to open a NETELLER - Join NOW account for me to be able to pay you your winnings.  In order to be paid you had to open it using the same e-mail address as the account you opened up with your bookmaker through thetipper.co.uk 

You didn't have to do it until you won, but it is a very useful way of transferring money into your bookmaker accounts without your bank knowing what you're up to.  Banks take a pretty dim view of customers who like a punt with the bookies.  I would caution that you wait until you have a substantial amount in your Neteller account before you make a transfer back to your bank, because although Neteller currently charge nothing to deposit using a debit card, they do currently charge £5 to transfer money back into your bank account.

If you have any questions tweet them direct to @thetipperuk (Quickest response) or e-mail: competitions@thetipper.co.uk

The other bookmakers you might have wanted to open an account with to get access to the Weekend Winner competition were and you still can open an account with them!
