  • What age do I need to be to play Predikta?

    You need to be at least 18 years old to play Predikta.

  • Is there a cut off time by which my predictions need to be submitted?

    You can predict anytime up to the start of a particular match. Once the match has started, no more predictions can be accepted for that match.

  • Can I change my predictions once submitted?

    You can change your predictions as often as you like up until the start of each match. Once the match has started however, no more predictions can be accepted for that match.

  • How do the Predikta points work?

    Points are awarded based on the accuracy of your predictions as follows:
    Correct result: 1 point. You get 1 point for correctly predicting the result of a match, e.g. if you pick Arsenal to win and they do win, you will receive 1 point.
    Goal Difference: 2 points. You get 2 points for correctly predicting both the result and goal difference, e.g. if you pick Arsenal to win 2-0 and they actually win 3-1, you will receive 2 points.
    Spot-on: 3 points. You get 3 points for correctly predicting the result spot-on, e.g. if you pick Arsenal to win 3-1 and they do win 3-1, you will receive 3 points.

    Select one match as your Banker and get double points for this match. Your points will be updated at half time and full time of each match.

  • How does Predikta separate two players with the same amount of total points?

    If two or more players score the same number of points, their league position is determined by the following process called the Predikta Separata:

    First by the person who has scored the most points for correct ‘result.’
    if it’s still a tie, then the person who has scored the most points for ‘spot on.’
    if it’s still a tie, then the person who has scored the most points for ‘goal difference.’
    if it’s still a tie, then it’s a tie!

  • What is the Banker?

    Select one of your predictions as your banker to get double points, i.e. a spot-on prediction will earn you six points instead of the usual three.

  • How many points do I get if I have forgotten to predict?

    If you forget to submit your predictions, you receive the same score as the person in your league who came last for the week. If you play in more than one league, it will be the lowest score.

  • How do I know how many points I have scored?

    Your points, leagues and bets status are updated on your Dashboard about 3 minutes after:
    End of 1st half
    End of the match

  • What if a match is cancelled?

    If a match is cancelled (or abandoned after it has commenced) and the cancelled match is not your banker then no points can be scored from this match. If the cancelled match happens to be your banker, you will be responsible for selecting an alternative banker from the remaining open matches at the time of cancellation.

  • What if a knockout match goes to extra time?

    For knock-out matches where two teams are tied after 90 minutes, the final score will be deemed to be the score after extra time (i.e. after 120 minutes but before a penalty shootout). If the match is decided by a penalty shootout, Predikta will regard the match as a draw, with the score after 120 minutes representing the 'final score'.

  • How many points do I get if I join Predikta mid-season?

    You will start with the same amount of points as the person currently coming last in the league you join.

  • How can I see how many points others in my league have scored?

    If you click on another player’s name in the league table you will be able to see what that player has predicted for the week. This information is updated at the end of every match. You will not be able to see what that player has predicted for matches that have not started yet. If you click on a player’s name when the league table is being viewed in the Tournament mode, you will be able to see how that player has earned his/her points for the tournament to date.

  • What is the Judas Index?

    You have the dishonour of being labelled a 'Judas' if the football team you support wins or draws after you predicted that they would lose. The Judas Index does not affect your points but it quite rightly embarrasses you in front of your competitors. You can view who is on the Judas Index for the current week and also look at who has been a Judas most often throughout the season in the Anorak section

  • Can I choose to send messages directly to another league member rather than posting it on the Forum board?

    Yes, you can use the Forum section to boast, insult or stay in touch with other league members in two ways. Firstly, you can choose to post your comments to the Forum Board. This will display your message on the Board and be visible to all players in your league. Secondly, you can select to send emails directly to members of your league.
