NRL & AFL tipping competitions are separate competitions with their own prize pool. Both work the same and extend for the entire Home & Away season. Simply select the winning team for each match each week. As an added twist, tipsters need to predict the winning margin on the Final match each round.
Tipsters will receive 1 point for each successful tip and your winning margin prediction will accumulate throughout the year to separate tipsters equal on points.
A drawn match cannot be tipped – if there is a drawn match outcome, tipsters will each receive 1 point. The tipster(s) with the best score each Round on the $10,000 ladder win or share $10,000 cash in the NRL and AFL competitions. If nobody tips the exact margin, then nearest to the pin wins! Round scores are added together on the Overall ladder and the tipster(s) with the best season score win or share $100,000 cash in the NRL and AFL competitions – the Top 1,000 tipsters in each competition win an end of season prize
