  • Pick of the day - RULES

    The Competition

    The competition has the purpose to gather the best bets of a certain day. It's for fun, but the comptetition can also be a good place for tipsters to find picks quicker than browsing all pages. You can place your Pick of the day and score points if it satisfies the conditions that are stated below. The competition lasts one month and in that period, a contestant must give 10 picks.YOU CAN ENTER THE COMPETITION UNTIL IT IS POSSIBLE TO PICK TEN POD-s. It means, entering competition after only 9 days of the month are left, is not possible.


    About the conditions

    Anyone is free to open the new thread if we haven't posted the first message after 00.00 (GMT +1). But if you do so, you must add the sponsor's banner and text at the bottom of the message. You can copy the code by pressing the quote-button on earlier Pick of the day-threads. You can only give one pick per day. Your pick must be different to all other placed picks, but you can back another team/player in the same game as someone else has taken. You cannot back the same team/player as someone else even if you take a different bet type (for example handicap bet) .(Exceptions will be made if your pick is similar to the one taken before, but only if time difference between the picks is not bigger than 10 minutes) .

    You can take only this bet types : 1X2 bets,Double chance,Moneyline bets, handicap bets (Asian and European handicaps) and Over/Under bets !

    Specials (first half bets,first quarter, more goals in first half, anytime scorer,goal scored between 10-15 minute etc. etc), and halftime/fulltime bets are forbidden.
    You can choose the games/events from the bookmakers listed above, but they must finish before 13.00 (GMT +1) the next day. Voided bets will not be included in the scoring. A pick without comments will not be regarded as a valid pick. You must write why you have chosen the pick or at least give a link to your own prediction at Bettingadvice. It's not enough to write "Team A is much stronger, they will crush team B" or analysis based only on statistics. Have in mind that the purpose of the forum is to help other tipsters find good picks. Write sport,league or livescore link if you think it's necessary. Post your pick at least an hour before the game starts. When the game has finished, please save us some time by adding the final result in your post (press the edit-button at the top-right corner of your post).Those who will be caught cheating by editing their picks inorder to avoid a lost pick will be disquailified from the competition.FROM NEW SEASON YOU SHOULD ALSO ADD NUMBER OF PICKS MADE SO FAR AND SCORE TO EVERY POD MADE OTHERWISE YOUR PICK WILL BE VOID. It should look like: (Pick #x, score: +xxx x/x).

    You can change technicalities until 1 hour before kick off. If you write your preview at 15:00 CET and the match starts at 20:00 CET, you are free to change the odds if you've found better odds, and you're free to change the bookmaker anytime until 19:00 CT

    Scoring

    A pick that was wrong will cost you 100 points. When you've made a correct pick, and it satisfied the conditions, you will gain 100(Odds-1) points. For example, a successful pick @ 1.85 will give you 85 points. This is the net profit if you had staked 100 units. Asian Handicaps will be calculated accoringly to the net profit. It is, however, allowed to pick odds above 3.50, but for the competition a maximum of 250 points holds. Obviously, this is done to avoid all-or-nothing attempts. The contestant that scores the highest number of points with 10 (and no less) picks, will win the monthly competition.In case he fails to give 10 picks/month 100p-for every missing pick- will be deducted from his score.
    To win Lakinis Summer POD you MUST make 20 bets and no less! Hopefully we will have time to update the standings everyday, but there may be some delays from time to time.



    Asian HCs <<NEW>>

    Any picks regarding manually adjusted Asian lines (like those that Bet365 and Pinnacle offers) will not be accepted and will be considered as VOID!



    Cancelled Bets <<NEW>>

    Regardless of every bookies policy inorder for a bet to stand, the game (whatever sport) must end normally.If (for any reason) it is suspended then any picks on this game will be considered as VOID!

    The prize

    The winner(s) will recieve money prize. We will personally contact the winner as soon as the round has finished.


    Disputes

    The organisation reserves the right to exclude picks and contestants from the competition, when they feel it is necessary. Don't forget this competition is for fun in the first place, and honesty is the best policy. If you have questions, suggestions or comments about the competition or the standings, send a private message to Minov,Casabel, Macot, Smeu or MNC.

    No fighting over stolen picks or any other reason should take place in the competition.Those who have problems with other members should P.M any of the moderators inorder to solve the problem.FIGHTING IS PROHIBITED

    Good luck to all!!!!!

    This month started, but I think we need to clear one thing regarding asian handicap and voided bets. So far, when pick is voided it was calculated as it never existed. OK, full stakes are back, so you can use them again - sounds logical. But, if you lose half of stakes (on -1/4 handicap, for example), you lose only 50 points, but you - of course - can not bet with another 50 (even if you twice get 50 back, so you have 100, ou can not use them ).
    For every half lost bet you'll get -50 points !

    We have talked about this one, and after all just letting voided bets slip by is the most conveinient way of handeling them, since you didn't lose or win. And for competition purposes there's really no reason to include vioded asian bets in the standings as they don't matter much anyway in the end. Nothing lost, nothing won.

        I support this. I even used to put all my previous picks with results. It is just one copy/past action and it is very useful for others. As nobody follows my custom, I would like to know what do you think about it?
        I will ask everyone to do that from next month, but if you forget, it wont be a problem, I will add it ,OK?

          I am quite new to this... Just 1 confusing point...

          For every pick do you stake 100 pts? Or for the next pick do you stake the winnings off your last bet?

                115 is right. You bet 100 units. You get back 215 units. Net profit is 115 units.

                  Just quick question. If bet is void, does that means that this void one does not count and i still have bet to pick?

                    Quick answer - yes.

                      You can take a different bet type from the same match!What you cant do is play a different type of the same outcome.For example if someone has taken Arsenal-M.U--->1 then all other types that imply arsenals win are not allowed.

                          Hi, I have one question.
                          Is it possible to pick a double chance if it is not offered by the bookie?
                          I mean to combine odds for win and odds for draw and make the oddds for 1x.

                            Sorry, my friend, but the rules do not allow it.
                            Why?
                            Well, simply because everyone would go running around making "home made" bets, and it would turn everything into chaos.
