With $5,000 cash on offer every round of the season for both AFL and NRL tipping and $50,000 cash each for the two end of season winners there is no excuse not to join!

I tipped all teams correctly, why didn't I win a prize?
Weekly cash prize winners for each code will be determined by the Registered Participants score for that round and then by their margin difference for the same round. The Registered Participant(s) with the highest round score and lowest margin difference will have the highest ladder ranking and be deemed the winner(s) of the weekly cash prizes for each code. Where Registered Participants have identical scores and margin differences for the same round for a code then the registered participants will equally share in the weekly cash prize.
How is the Margin calculated?
To make it even more competitive the way margin is calculated has been changed.
"Margin Difference" means the number of points between the margin entered by the Registered Participant for the team they tip to win for a Margin Match and the actual margin for the match. If the Registered Participant has correctly tipped the winning team for the Margin Match, the Margin Difference will equal the difference between the actual margin and the margin entered by the Registered Participant. If the Registered Participant has incorrectly tipped the winning team for the Margin Match, the Margin Difference will equal the total of the actual winning margin plus the margin entered by the Registered Participant. For example: If Team A defeats Team B by 10 points, and you have selected Team A to win by 20 points, your Margin Difference for that Round is 10; and if you have selected Team B to win by 20 points, your Margin Difference for that Round is 30
