Predicting the matches
Predict the end score of all the matches in the tournament/competition. You have until 15 minutes before the start of a match to add or change your prediction. The UK server time is used, so be on time if you want to fill in your scores.
The scores at the end of the league game (90 mins + stoppage) are used for the calculation of the scores. For Cup competitions, the score at the end of the game, or end of extra time is used. In the event of a penalty shoot-out, the final score after penalties is used.
You get points for predicting the correct winner of the match or prediction of a draw. We call this the toto score. In case you also predict the exact amount of goals scored, you get extra points. We call this the full score. If you got the goals correct you get the extra goal bonus, even if you didn’t get the match result correct (e.g. match ends in 1-1 and you predicted 0-1 you will still get 1 points). The last scoring options is the goal difference bonus: if you predict the correct winner, not the exact score, but you predicted the correct difference in goals, you get the goal difference bonus (e.g. you predicted 3-1 or 4-2 and result is 2-0).

The golden ball
Each player has one golden ball. If you place this ball next to a match the score for that match is multiplied by 2. You may place the golden ball next to every match and you can change your mind and move the golden ball, as long this match is still changeable. The golden ball is activated after the prediction for the match is locked. Once activated the golden ball cannot be moved anymore.
When multiple players have the exact same amount of points, then the following sorting rules are applied on the ranking (most important one at the top):
- amount of full scores;
- amount of toto scores.
