HOW TO PLAY & FAQs
HOW TO PLAY

To play in a SpottoCash competition look carefully at this week’s photo of a real football match that does not contain a football, and using your skill and knowledge of football, place a Spot where you think the centre of the ball should be. To delete a spot, simply click on the one you want to delete and a pop will appear confirming that you want to delete it.

After the competition has closed on Sunday 24:00 (GMT), every Monday at 12 Noon, our panel of experts will use their skill and knowledge of football to judge and decide live online, where they believe the centre of the ball should be.

HOW TO WIN

The Spot that is closest to the judges position will win the guaranteed cash prize of £10,000. Yes, your Spot doesn’t have to be exactly where the judges place the Spotto ball – it just has to be the closest. That means each week someone wins £10,000 – guaranteed!

Came close but didn’t win? Not to worry, we give Spotto Points worth £2 to the next 10 players closest to the ball. So if your Spot was in the top 10 closest to the Spotto ball we will credit your account with Spotto Points.

COMPETITIONS

Each competition opens at 00:01 (GMT) on Monday morning and closes at 24:00 (GMT)  the following Sunday, effectively running from Monday to Sunday, 52 weeks a year. We guarantee that every week there will be a £10,000 cash winner.

Judging takes place at 12 Noon every Monday for the competition that closed at 24:00 the previous day (Sunday). We will notify the winner on the same day, (unless there is more than one person on or closest to the winning Spotto - please see our terms and conditions) by 18:00 hours (GMT). We post the results of each competition on our website once the winner has been notified.

4) Spot-the-Ball: a game of skill

Spot-the-ball has long been recognised as a game enjoyed by football fans around the world. It is a game of skill and knowledge, not a game of chance like a raffle or lottery. Players look at a photo image of an actual game of football which does not contain a ball, and use their skill and knowledge to work out where they think the centre of the ball should be. When you play SpottoCash, you use your skill and knowledge of the sport to place a Spot where you think the centre of the ball should be. Your position is registered as x:y coordinates.

5) Why does a panel of judges determine where the ball is? Why not use the original ball position?

Spotto is a fair, transparent and auditable game based on skill and knowledge.

By not using the original ball position we turn spot-the-ball from a game of chance into a game of skill. We remove all possibility of anyone knowing or being able to find out where the ball in the original photo actually was.

Instead, when you play SpottoCash you are testing your skills against the skills of professionals. Our panel of judges are all experienced football professionals and includes referees and former footballers. They use their skills and detailed knowledge of football to decide where they think the centre of the ball should be.

6) How is the winner decided?

Every week, when a competition has closed, a panel of judges comprising experienced former footballers and referees are shown the game photo from the previous week – exactly the same photo as the one on which you placed your Spot/s. The officials will judge and decide where, in their professional opinion; they think the centre of the ball should be. This will be videoed and streamed on our Facebook and YouTube pages along with a representative of SpottoCash. The winner of that competition is the player whose Spot is closest to where the judges place the Spotto.

7) What happens if Spots placed by two or more players are equidistant from where the judges place the centre of the ball?

There can only be one winner. If Spots placed by two or more players are equidistant from where the judges place the centre of the ball, we look at other Spots placed by these players in this competition. If all these players have placed additional Spots, the competition winner will be the player who’s Spot is next closest. 

If one or more of the players who are equidistant has only placed one Spot in this competition, all players who are equidistant will play in a further Spot the Ball competition online under exactly the same rules, to determine the Spotto winner. (Terms & Conditions/Competition Judging) All other players in this Shoot-Out will receive £100 Cash.
