Welcome to Round 1 of Braeburn’s World Cup Prediction Contest generously supported by the Steem Betting Community and @stimp1024.
The competition will have six rounds and each winner will receive the 50% SBD payout from that rounds post PLUS a 2 SBD bonus donated by @stimp1024. In addition, the winners of each round will get to enter a prediction for the World Cup final and a chance to win the Grand Prize! More on the Grand Prize in a bit, first here is how to play.
Braeburn's World Cup Prediction Contest.
Each round of the contest will correspond to one round of games at the Russia World Cup, starting this Thursday. There will be one competition for each of three sets of group games and then one each for the second-round, quarter-finals and the semi-finals.
For your chance to win you just need to provide the following predictions for the game listed below:
- Correct Score.
- Minute of first goal.
- Scorer of first goal.
- Total number of yellow cards.
- Total number of shots in the game.
- Total number of shots on target in the game.
Please make your entry in the format below:
- Gary Lineker
The predictions are listed in order of importance, therefore if only one person gets the correct score then they will be judged the winner regardless of how they do on the other predictions. However, if two (or more) entries guess the correct score then the minute of the first goal will come into play. If two or more entries are still tied then it will be first scorer, number of yellow cards, number of shots and finally the number of shots on target in the match. In the unlikely event that the competition is still tied then the winnings will be shared between all correct entries. Prizes will be paid when the rewards from this post are paid out. All statistics for deciding the winner will be taken from the BBC website.
The Grand Prize
What is the Grand Prize? I hear you ask... Well, I have given a friend (a fellow Steemian who wishes to remain anonymous) £50 and asked him to place bets on whatever he fancies during the World Cup. At the end of the tournament, ALL of the money left in the pot will be given out as the Grand Prize in the form of pure and shiny Steem. This means that depending on the success of my friend the Grand Prize could be absolutely NOTHING or perhaps HUNDREDS of pounds... In addition whoever best predicts the final will receive the 50% SBD payout from that post too! So what have you got to lose? Nothing right, so get predicting...
You can find details of the bets being placed and the current Grand Prize pot here.
There is no requirement to upvote or resteem this post but the more people who see it the better the payout will be for the winner... so please share and upvote if you can.
