FAQs

  • Is 7OTB free to play?

    Yes, totally free.

  • How do I register?

    Click here and create your account, username and password. It’s quick and easy to do.

  • Can I make more than one set of selections?

    No. Only one account is allowed per player, and we will close multiple accounts. Players may join two Teams using their unique username and password. Only one weekly entry per Team is allowed per person. If we have reasonable grounds to believe that multiple accounts have been opened by or are under the control of the same person, all such accounts will be closed, and all entries and accounts will be disqualified from participating or winning any of the 7OTB prizes on offer.

  • What can I win?

    Every week, the best Team combined score in the country is eligible to win £1,500.

    Every week, we award three individual prizes: the best individual score on the Weekly Leaderboard is eligible to win £500; the player in 2nd place is eligible to win £300; and the 3rd-placed player is eligible to win £200.

    If you get all seven of your selections correct, seven weeks in a row, you are eligible to win £500,000!

  • If I win a 7OTB prize, how do I get paid?

    We will contact you using the email or mobile contact details you provided when registering. We will also require you to verify your age at this point.

    We aim to process prize payments within 3-5 working days at latest, once you have responded to our email or call, but usually payments will be made more quickly.

    Your other Win selections score 3 for a win, 1 if they draw, and 0 if they lose.
    Your Draw selection scores 4 if correct, 0 if not.

    Goals bonus:

    If any of your 6 Win selections win by 4 clear goals, you score an additional 1 point.

    If all your 6 Win selections win, and your Draw is also correct, you score an additional 4 points in total.

    Players will receive 2 points for each postponed game.

  • How do I follow my friends?

    You can follow your friends on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.

  • What is the Global Leaderboard?

    The Global Leaderboard consists of every 7OTB member throughout the UK.

  • What are Teams?

    Teams consist of a team of between 10 and 15 players – workmates, teammates, family – you choose. You can join or create up to two Teams, using your unique username and password.

    Please note that each Team member must make their selections independently (see also our Terms and Conditions clause 3.6).

  • How is the £1,500 Team Competition Winner decided in the event of a tie?

    If Team scores are tied, we revert to the average player position for all 10 contributing players for that week. The Team with the lowest average player position wins. If any Teams are still tied, the prize is split.

  • How is the Weekly Individual Prize Winner decided in the event of a tie?

    If more than one player scores the same points in any week, the following system is used:

    1. The player with the most correct predictions from their seven selections wins 1st prize.
    2. If that does not produce a clear winner, we calculate each remaining player’s goal difference (the total of goals scored minus goals conceded).
    3. In the event that this still does not produce a clear 1st, 2nd and 3rd place table, we calculate the total of the goals scored across all the remaining players’ Win selections, and the player with the highest number of goals scored wins the remaining Prize. (The Draw does not count for this calculation).
    4. If two or more players are still tied, they share the 2nd and 3rd Prize money equally.
  • How do I win the Jackpot Prize?

    In order to win the £500,000 Jackpot Prize, the following applies: each week your selections must be submitted by 2.45pm on a Saturday. You must successfully select all 7 selections over 7 consecutive weeks. If in any week you don’t manage to select all 7 selections correctly, the following week you revert back to week one of the rolling 7- week sequence. In other words, you go back to square one and start again.

    The first person to achieve all the required 7 selections, 7 weeks in a row, will be deemed the winner. If this is achieved by 2 or more people on the same week the Prize will be split.

  • Can I register from anywhere in the world?

    Sorry, no. To be eligible for prizes you must be a legal resident of the UK.

  • What happens when matches are postponed?

    All postponed games count as two points, but remember that you can change your selections up until 2.45pm on a Saturday.
