Tipsters must have published a minimum of 400 bets over the 12 months of the competition and a positive profit, as mentioned above, in order to become eligible to compete for a prize.


The betting units allowed depend on the odds of a given prediction. The table below explains what bets are allowed on particular odds ranges:


Odds < 2.5 Maximum stake allowed: 10 Units

2.5 ≤ Odds < 2.75 Maximum bet allowed: 9 Units

2.75 ≤ Odds < 3 Maximum bet allowed: 8 Units

3 ≤ Odds < 4 Maximum Bet: 7 Units

4 ≤ Odds < 5 Maximum Bet: 6 Units

5 ≤ Odds < 6 Maximum Bet allowed: 5 Units

6 ≤ Odds < 8 Maximum Bet allowed: 4 Units

8 ≤ Odds < 10 Maximum Bet allowed: 3 Units

10 ≤ Odds < 20 Maximum Bet: 2 Units

20 ≤ Odds < 50 Maximum Bet: 1 Units

50 ≤ Odds < 100 Maximum Bet allowed: 0.5 Units


  Once a prediction is published, it cannot be modified.

  In the event of a prediction dispute, the description of the prediction is final. Always make sure that the description of your prediction explains your thoughts correctly.

  When prediction rules are disputed, the final decision is based on how the bookmaker, in this case Pinnacle.com, has settled the bet on its site. This means that if the bet is cancelled by the bookmaker, the bet on bet2invest is also cancelled.

  Predictions must be made before the scheduled start of the event. Once the event has started, it is no longer possible to make predictions on the event.

  Only one prediction is allowed per market on an event (Example: You can predict on the 1N2 only once, you can predict on the Over/Under only once, but you cannot predict several times on the 1N2 of the same event, or several times on the Over/Under of the same event).


Determining the winners


Your position in the rankings depends solely on your ROI (Return on Investment) and is calculated as follows:


  When you make a prediction, you select a stake. (from 0.5 to 10 Units as described above)

  If the prediction wins, the return is calculated as follows: Bet multiplied by the odds, minus The Bet 

  Example: A winning prediction with 5 Units of Stake on odds of 2.50 will yield 7.5 Units [(5 x 2.5) - 5].

  If the prediction loses, the stake is withdrawn from your bankroll.

  Example: A losing prediction with a Bet of 10 Units will result in a withdrawal of 10 Units.

  As the competition cycle progresses, all predictions (positive and negative) are automatically calculated by our own tools.

  At the end of the competition cycle, the final ranking shows the final standings and who receives the prizes. Tipsters will be ranked from highest to lowest according to ROI (Return on Investment).

  In the unlikely event that two or more Tipsters finish the Competition with exactly the same ROI, the one with the best CLV (Closing Line Value) will win.


Payment of Prizes won:


All payments made by Bet2invest must be audited. We need to make sure that we offer the prizes won to the right users. Therefore, it is mandatory to fill in the following information on your Bet2invest account as soon as you enter the competition:

For the payment of each prize, Bet2invest may ask the winners for a copy of their identity card (copy of passport, driving licence with a visible date of birth).


We have strict deadlines for our payment process. From the 3rd of the month, all winners will be contacted by our website administrators. You will then have until the 9th (23:59 CET) to submit the form with your details. Any data submitted after this deadline will not be accepted and will result in the loss of your prize. All payments are processed within five (5) working days of the deadline for providing your data.


All payments are made by bank transfer. There is no option for a Tipster to be paid in any other way.


The cash prize may be taxable depending on the laws applicable in your country of residence.

If there is an obligation on the part of the Organiser, it will be dealt with by the competent tax authorities in accordance with the applicable laws.

We may publish the name and surname of the winner on our Website in order to contribute to the transparency of the Competition and to comply with legislation and recommendations on advertising. You may object to the publication of this information by sending us an e-mail (contact@bet2invest.com).


If you win the prize, we may ask you for a copy of your identity card, your telephone number, proof of address and your bank details. The processing of this data is necessary for the validation of your information, the transmission/delivery of the prizes, the payment of the corresponding taxes and the verification that you have met the legislative requirements concerning the age limit for playing and participating in the Competition.

Any attempt to exploit the Website system is prohibited and will result in sanctions.

Predictions are checked and those caught cheating or circumventing the rules will be severely punished. Conversely, honesty and respect for the integrity of the website are praised and often rewarded.


When the website administrators correct errors in tips that violate the rules listed above, they will delete all tips that would have generated a profit for the tipster. However, any incorrect tips that result in a loss for the Tipster will be allowed to remain as they would have resulted from the Tipster not complying with the rules.


The Organiser reserves the right to reward or punish Tipsters wherever it sees fit. Explanations will always be given where Tipsters operate outside the normal rules of the Competition.


Sanctions include cancellation/removal of tips, conduct warnings, temporary bans and, in certain circumstances, permanent blocking. The extent of a sanction is determined by the seriousness of the offence and whether the Tipster is a repeat offender. Cases are judged on their individual merits and the decisions taken by the Organiser are final and must be respected.


For any other problem or doubt that does not have clear guidelines in the terms and conditions above, it will be dealt with at the discretion of the administration of the website.
