I Already posted this on the Oval Office-thread, but adding it to this thread as well:

 

Because Unibet has come up with a whole season lasting NFL promotion , where by placing a €10 pre-match bet on the Thursday night game you will receive a €5 free live-bet to be used on any of the Sunday matches, bets made on the matches that are played before Sunday will also give you an access on that weeks NFL Oracle competitionSmile

Note that the Unibet promotion bet requirements somewhat differ from our community competition. Minimum bet there is €10 ( real money only, no free bets or bonus money ) and minimum odds per leg is 1,80, while on our NFL Oracle the minimum bet remains at €5 and minimum total odds at 1,40

So in order to participate in the competition in a week, we need to bet on NFL? I am asking because I never had a bet on NFL :))


@FunckyFish 

Correct. There is a €5 bet requirement with minimum odds of only 1,40 each week you participate. There's plenty of value thought with the side games, leaderboard, weekly prizes and especially the green slip jackpot, which with only 13 matches on the list and all having only 2 possible outcomes isn't that impossible for someone to hit. 😃👍

Last season @AceJackTwin  was just 10 ( if I remember correctly ) passing yards from Mahomes on the Superbowl short of hitting the Jackpot. Can't get much closer than that without hitting it 😃

You need odds around 5000 to win on all 13 matches and get the jackpot. If there will be 50 players in the competition, the probability of someone to hit all 13 matches it will be 1 in 100 weeks :) . It's the same thing like with the jackpot in the Daily Hot bets competition.

Ouch! Still hurts :speechless:

Thanks Unibet/Purps for running this promo again. Was the best community promo last year, lots of value and lots of fun.

GL all 😉

5 euros minimum seems a bit steep. It wasn't that much last season. A bet wasn't an absolute requirement to play either. I have been thinking for a couple of weeks about a couple of the games in Weeks 1 and 2 so i might join this but i doubt i'll fancy throwing a fiver at NFL each week so maybe not.

You don't post your bet until it's settled too. So presumably the leader board will be provisional until players have posted their settled bets.

It feels a bit like it's been fixed when it wasn't broken.

@DoktorAvalanche 

There can never be a format that everyone would be totally happy with. With the low odds requirement you also should be able to handle the variance quite nicely and shouldn't lose that much on the bets during the 16 rounds, if any at all. But let's hope you get a good start and stay on board for the whole ride 😃👍

Bet screenshots also have to be posted before the deadline on Sunday, so everyone you see on the leaderboard has indeed posted a bet. 🆗

Agree with DoktorAvalanche here,and was really surprised to see such requirement (5€ bet on 1.40). 

If I remember correctly,Jeppe said,on last season's version,bet requirement of 1€ was just to spice things up.With this new rule I cant`s see raise in competition,but rather losing interest from most participants,week after week,because of failed betslips and low balance.

Also,how much we will get from green slip jackpot? Negotiable,like some has been? :laugh:

I didn't see it as a fix, but just an update to this seasons competition making it work into the overall scheme of things.

We'll have regular football SuperToto's running this season as well and they're ususally fairly high in entry numbers, so seemed good to balance it out a bit for the Oracle as it's going to run for 16 weeks straight. We have some thoughs for UFC comps too :)

There's great value with all the extra ways to win than just getting the best score for the week and Free Bets or bets placed from Bonus Money is allowed as well, not something regularly seen in any promotions outside of the community :) It also flows into the main Unibet season long promotion where you can get a €5 Live Free Bet on a €10 NFL bet. With the entry bet here being half that, there's pretty good variety and you can get some pretty good NFL action for just single bet. 

I definitely understand not wanting to bet on the NFL every week, it's one of the reasons why 10 scores out of the total 16 possible rounds will count, making it possible to compete without joining all the rounds :)

The thread for the Jackpot will be fixed, but it's for €1000  in Free Bets or half of it as Poker Points - call that a negotiation if you will :)

Remember that you have to post both, your Oracle predictions and a screenshot of a qualifying bet before 19:00 CEST today to participate. If either is missing or even a minute late, then your picks won't be included on the round.

 

Since this is the first round and some may still be unaware of the above rule, I'll tag everyone here that is missing the bet or the prediction ( will do this only this one time )

 

Predictions posted but bet missing: @Shulya85 , @rujuk85 , @Mattey83 , @Want2Believe , @dj-man , @Thurddzz , @yaverr , @seetank , @Pesek , @bizarre12 

Bet posted but prediction missing: @whereisrivaldo  and @AceJackTwin 

 

Someof you are just leaving it late and didn't really need this reminder, but just make sure that the timestamp of your post won't be later than 18:59 CEST, as there won't be any exceptions made on the deadline and there's no late entry on this competition :Smile::Thumbsup:

We have 26 participants on the 1st round of this seasons Community NFL Oracle.

Business as usual on what comes to the leaderboards . Updates always when a match comes to an end, except on some of the very late matches but those will be updated first thing on the next morning.

Best of luck everyone and enjoy the new NFL season :Happy::Thumbsup:
