£5000 Football Champion Tipster

THE search for Scotland’s top tipster is back once again for the 2014/15 season. Betrescue.com have teamed up with The Daily Record – Scotland’s leading daily newspaper – to launch another fantastic £5000 contest with weekly, monthly and season end prizes.

The Tipster Championship drew to a close this week with a healthy eight lines surviving and a host toppled by the likes of Hull, Aberdeen and Aston Villa.

Edna Howieson’s fourfold was the victor, the Grangemouth punter tipping a win for Leicester and draws in Parma v Verona, Southend v Wycombe and Motherwell v Patrick to secure a mythical return of £654.40.

Edna subsequently lands a £50 free bet and added to that is last week’s £50 free bet as it was a rollover. Moreover, in an incredible week for Edna, she also claims May’s monthly prize, a £100 free bet at Titanbet.

The overall winners and their prizes (in free bets) are as follows:

Position Name Town Return Including Stake Prize
1 Craig Alves Linlithgow £3,055.10 £1,000
2 Joseph Wilson Ayr £2,731.05 £500
3 Richard Stokes Sutton-in-Ashfield £1,793.75 £250
4 Lynsey McLaren Mauchline £1,583.83 £150
5 Danny Maloney Snr Greenock £1,490.94 £100

They will be contacted week beginning 1st June with details of how to claim their prizes

The rules are the same as last season, everyone has a chance of winning the top prize until the last weekend of the competition and again there are no postal entries for the 2014/15 season.

Playing the game is simple. Your bet is a £10 mythical one on an accumulator featuring a minimum of three teams (entries will be void if postponements cause the line to have fewer than three selections) and a maximum of six. All your sides must win for the line to come up – or draw if that’s what you choose. Teams to pick from are those taking part in Scottish or English league matches – no non-league or foreign games unless stated – although weekend cup fixtures in England and Scotland as well as weekend international qualifiers will be accepted.

Ladbrokes prices will be used to calculate winning lines. You may include games from the Friday evening through to the Monday evening, but not from any other night. Any winnings, including stake, are added to your total with the person accumulating the most in a month claiming £100 of free bets.

In the event of a tie a draw will take place to decide prizes. Weekly prizes meanwhile will carry forward to the following week if there are no winners. You can enter on line or by text. One entry per person, maximum of two per household.

Methods Of Entry: Enter on the internet using the form below. Email entries to: record@betrescue.com Text entries to 64446 – Type betrescue as the first word then your full name, house number and postcode, together with your team selections and stake to 64446.
