Hello arbusers community.
I am Pablo Pintaluba from Smart Bet Tracker, the web application to track bets and surebets (http://sbt.smartbettracker.com
We have been working and finally launched the World Cup Contest (if you visited Smart Bet Tracker in the last few days you may have seen the banner).
Let me tell you the basics:
- You must subscribe to the contest
- You must pay a small "buy-in" (USD 50). Almost the whole buy-in will go to the prize pot. 10% will be used to cover costs and hopefully a small profit
- You must place your predictions (final score) for all matches in the world cup
- You will earn credits based on each match result and your predictions.
- Subscribers will be ranked based on their credits
- Best ranked subscribers will win the pot. Prizes and number of winners will depend on the number of participants.
The web application will manage everything automatically.
To learn more and to participate, visit http://www.theworldcupcontest.com
In particular, check the rules and the help page where everything is explained.
We pretend this contest to be fun. That's the main motivation. We like betting and we like developing software. We have build a nice web application with information about the world cup, groups and teams, cities and venues, the match calendar, etc.
But we also expect the prize to be significantly greater than the "buy-in". In example, with just 32 participants, the winner will get more than 10 times the subscription cost, and 10 people will have prizes (descending value, always more than the "buy-in"). But let's hope we reach hundreds of participants to increase the pot and award great prizes. Right now the pot is USD 675, but many people (who did not yet subscribed) have already confirmed their participation.
And last but not least, if two participants have the same number of credits the one who confirmed its subscription earlier will be better ranked than the other. So why don't you subscribe right now? http://www.theworldcupcontest.comPROMOTION 2x1
If you subscribe to the World Cup Contest, we will give you a subscription to Smart Bet Tracker for free, for an equivalent price.
if you subscribe to Smart Bet Tracker for any plan equal or greater to USD 50, you will get a subscription to the World Cup Contest for free.Transparency is a key feature
Everybody can see at any time the number of users who have paid the buy in, and the total prize. This information is available even for non subscribers
Everybody can see at any time the list of all users who have paid the buy in, the current ranking and the prize for each participant. This information is available even for non subscribers. No personal information is displayed. Just the username and country. Information regarding this contest includes the paid buy in, position, credits awarded, current prize, and the date the participant confirmed his subscription.
Predictions are private. Only you can see your predictions while predictions for a match are still available. This means nobody can copy your predictions.
Predictions are public once a match does not allow more predictions. All participants can check predictions of other participants. This is only allowed for each match where prediction period has ended. This means every participant can check all predictions and control that rankings are accurate.
