You can get 2 wrong and still win the top prize! With the Football Pools, you get to pick 10 numbers, but only your best 8 scores count, so if there’s a couple of upsets, you could still win!
How to Play?
Picking score draws is the name of the game. From the 49 pre-selected football matches, players select 10, 11 or 12 matches, and if 8 are correct then you’re in with a chance of winning.
Points are awarded for each result, with a score draw worth 3 points, a goalless draw netting you 2 points and a home or away win offers 1 point. All the points are added up after the last game ends on the coupon and the players with the best score win.
