2016 Tipster Competition Prizes
Last year I messed around with the prize structure, introduced premium tipsters and changed the direction of the site in order to allow way for paid tipsters.
All the changes were there to keep the best tipsters happy and ensure you are rewarded for your efforts.
I'll hold my hands up and say most of the changes probably didn't work and seemed to have a negative effect. But sometimes if you don't try things in life you never know what's best.
So this year there is no messing around. I'm announcing the prizes now. Paid tips is on hold for now due to disappointing figures and less funds to invest. I'll monitor the situation closely over the next few months.To ensure tipster winnings are not limited I will introduce a donate button on profile pages. So if a tipster does win you some money, then please show your gratitude by sending a couple of quid their way.
Jackpot: This is a new addition. A 12 month tipster competition to reward the most consistent tipsters across the year. On the 20th December 2016 the top 3 tipsters will win the following prizes.
That will be the single biggest prize I have paid an individual tipster since the site began. I believe it's a real incentive to the better tipsters to be consistent rather than aiming for the monthly prizes. Again my profiles will compete, although last time I did this, I wasn't even close.
To ensure no-one comes along and lands a big winner late on, there will be a 9 month cut off point where the top 10 tipsters will progress and compete for the prizes over the final 3 months.
Cash Builder: Again this is aimed at the consistent tipsters. The Cash Builder prize starts at £500 and the first month it can be won is the end of June. To win the Cash Builder you need 6 consecutive months of a profit of over +50 and a ROI of 5% or more. You must post a minimum of 5 tips in that month. Due to some sports being seasonal a tipster can announce at the start of the month (within 3 days and before posting a tip) that they wish to skip a month.
From July onwards, every month the cash builder isn't won, £50 will be added to the prize. So if we don't get a winner in 2016, January next year would have a prize of £800. If the target profit/ROI proves too easy or hard I will change it at some stage.
Monthly Prizes: Once again they will be heavily favoured towards the "Premium Tipsters". So those that have proven they can make a profit and have been tipping for longer will be rewarded for that.
You don't have to be in profit to win a prize. My tipster profiles will be competing for prizes. However if I do win a prize and I've made a profit betting that month, I will donate my winnings among the tipsters who have made me money. Punter tracking should be online in the next few weeks so you'll know exactly how much I won or lost each month and which tipsters made me that money.
