Bet365 Sport Tournament Predictor For World Cup 2022
We know that the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar is set to get underway this Sunday with the host nation taking on Ecuador in the first game, but before that you may be busy considering which teams to pick as part of bet365’s free-to-play Tournament Predictor.
There is no need to have made a deposit, or a bet into your account for this promotion. It is available to all eligible bet365 customers with a standard, non-restricted account.
The promotion is, what is known in US Sports, as a bracket promotion and while these promotions are starting to become more common here in the United Kingdom, they have been more prevalent and widely accessible in the United States for many years.
Essentially, you are predicting the outcome of each of the eight groups in the opening phase of the tournament and then from those predictions, your Round of 16, quarter final, semi final and final games are modelled based on your predictions for each previous round, until you predict the winner of the tournament.
For each successful prediction you make, you will earn points, with successful later round predictions earning you more points.
Bet365 will track everyone’s score in the prediction tournament and keep a leaderboard of those that compete and the top 10,000 players on the leaderboard will win a prize ranging from £1 up to the top prize of £100,000.
The £1,000,000 Tournament Predictor Jackpot
However, if you are able to predict every outcome correctly, the so-called ‘perfect bracket’ then you won’t just win £100,000 as bet365 will increase your payout to the top jackpot prize of £1,000,000.
To claim this prize, you need to predict the final standings in the Group Stage of the tournament correctly, as well as the winner of each match in the knockout phase.
And for clarity, it doesn’t matter if the team you select to win in the Knockout Phase wins their game within the 90 minutes, in extra time or on penalties – if the team you back wins in any of these ways then your prediction is correct.
This promotion is not just a free swing at landing a £1,000,000 jackpot prize, but with 10,000 cash prize up for grabs, and a top prize of £100,000 guaranteed to be won, it is a free shot at landing some extra cash for you to bet with too.
Let’s now take a look at how you can enter the bet365 Tournament Predictor quickly and easily.
Entering The Bet365 Tournament Predictor
To start off, you need to visit the bet365 Sport website or mobile app and then log in to your account.
Once you have done this, simply head over to the Tournament Predictor promotional page on the site and click on the button to start entering your predictions for the first part of the promotion.
Part One – The Group Stage
The first part of the promotion focuses on the Group Stage of the World Cup. In this stage, the 32 World Cup Finalists have been drawn into eight groups of four.
These teams will then play the others in their group once, with the top two teams from each group progressing on to the Knockout Phase of the tournament and the other two teams finishing 3rd and 4th being eliminated from the event.
Your aim here is to predict the finishing positions of each of the four teams in each of the eight groups.
You do this by clicking and holding down the mouse button (or mobile equivalent) on a team and dragging them into the position you think they will finish in the group.
Once you have completed this for the eight different groups you are then ready to move on to the next phase of the prediction game.
Part Two – The Knockout Phase
When you move onto the second part of the Tournament Predictor, the software will take the predictions that you have made in the Group Stage and place the teams you predicted into the Round of 16 positions for the initial knockout phase.
You then simply need to predict which team will progress from each game into the quarterfinals of the tournament.
From then on, it is simply a case of following the same process for the four quarter final games, two semi final games and of course the final.
By the end of which, you will have completed your prediction bracket.
Simply then click the button to enter your predictions into the tournament.
And don’t worry if you change your mind on a prediction. You can go back to your predictions at any point up until the start of the first game in the tournament at 4pm UK Time on Sunday 20th November, and edit your predictions.
However, once the first game in the tournament gets underway, your predictions will be locked and will no longer be able to be edited.
Entries are restricted to one per bet365 customer.
