Premier Picks 2017/18: £1000 Prize Fund

Dear Premier Picks player

It is with regret that we have to inform you that with immediate effect the Premier Picks contest has been suspended due to regulatory compliance issues.

We hope to resume the competition in the near future once we have had approval from the legal department at the Gambling Commission.

Whilst a bit of fun seems to have been taken to extremes by the authorities, unfortunately we have to bow to regulatory pressure.

All scores have been retained and the October contest will be merged into the month when we are given the green light to start again.

We will contact you at that point.

Betrescue.com appologise for any inconvenience.

Yours faithfully

How To Play Premier Picks
All contestants start the competition with a fantasy betting account of £5000 GBP with Betrescue.com.

You can only place your mythical bet: home [1] draw [X] away [2] on English Premier League matches using bet365 odds as shown in the odds table below. Results are based on 90 minutes. Postponed or abandoned matches are void.  The maximum ‘bet’ on each match is £100 GBP and the minimum £10 GBP.

You can only make one selection per match but you can ‘bet’ on as a many or as few premier league matches as you wish throughout the season.  If your account goes into the red (a minus balance) you will be disqualified. Remember, the competition lasts for the full season so choose your selections wisely!

The best tipsters will be those considered to ‘win’ the most money from their selections. Scoring is calculated in exactly the same way as it does with a bookmaker.

Eg. the Odds on Manchester United V Arsenal are: 1 = 5/4; X = 5/2; 2 = 6/4, and you successfully choose to Stake ‘£50’ on the draw, your betrescue.com account will be credited with £125 or if you successfully selected Manchester United to win, a stake of £80 would return a profit of £100.

The seasonal competition is based on the contestants overall cumulative balance. The monthly competitions are based on the contestants performance in the month in question only. The competition is open to everyone but the monthly free bet prizes will only be awarded once to the same player in any three month period – ie you can only win one first, one second and one third prize in Aug-Oct, Nov-Jan, Feb-Apr/May
