Beat the Drop - Game Rules

Who can take part?

The promotion is available for new and existing customers with registered Betfair accounts, aged 18 or over.

How and when can I qualify?

Select your stake and the number of questions you want to answer (max ticket £/€250).

You will then be given a pot of money to bet with (the size of that pot will depend on your stake and the number of questions which you have chosen to answer).

From those which are being offered, simply choose your first fixture and the market on which you wish to bet. You can then either split your pot, or go all the way in, on that question. Repeat this process until you have answered all of your questions.

Any money left in the pot after all the questions have been answered is yours to keep.

What can I win?

The maximum winnings from any single game (i.e. where a £/€250 ticket is selected and the maximum number of questions is chosen) is £/€1,000,000.

The size of the pot (i.e. your potential winnings) is determined by the number of questions you select and the ticket cost..

When will I get my prize?

Cash will be credited automatically to your account.

What else do I need to know?

This is a Sportsbook (i.e. a fixed odds) product.

The maximum ticket price per game is £/€250.

Tickets are only valid for sixty days from the time you answered your last question. If this time elapses and a game is not completed, you will be entitled to claim an amount which is calculated by halving the pot (i.e. as it stands at the lapse of the sixty-day period) for every remaining question. For example, if you have £/€100 in the pot with two rounds to play, you will be entitled to claim £/€25 (because the remaining £/€100 will be notionally halved and the £/€50 which remains after that will then be notionally halved again).  Please note that, because you have allowed the game to lapse, you will not automatically be credited with this amount but will be entitled to claim it by contacting our customer services team.

The first time you play Beat the Drop, you will automatically receive 30 days of free play. You will have unlimited play of a ‘10 Q - £1,000 Pot’ game. You can only enter one game at a time. Your free month will expire 30 days after your first entry from the 17th of September 2018. When you complete a free game (win or lose), you will be entered back into another free game as long as it is within the 30 day free period. This offer is only available the first time you play Beat the Drop from the 17th of September 2018. To ensure that the promotion is limited to one per customer, we only permit one customer to participate from each household address, IP address, email address, payment method (e.g. debit or credit card, Neteller etc) and/or shared computer (e.g. public library or workplace). We reserve the right not to award free entries to any customer.

Only one game can be played at any one time.
