Welcome to the Bolton Nuts 2018 World Cup Sweepstake.
This functions just like any other sweepstake out there, whereby once enough entrants are confirmed a random draw will take place to assign each competitor a World Cup team. If their team does well there are rewards in the form of a payout taken from the total prize pool, which is decided by the number of total entrants when the tournament kicks off. Below is a quick breakdown of the projected costs and payouts, assuming the full compliment of 32 competitors is found.

Entrance Fee: £2.00
Total Prize Pool: £64

Winner: £50
Runner-up: £10
Golden Boot: £4


The team containing the tournaments top goalscorer (as awarded by FIFA at the end of the tournament) will win the Golden Boot prize. In the event of a tie, the prize pot will be split as evenly as possible amongst the winning teams.

To start off with, the competition will be limited to one team per competitor but if 32 competitors can’t be found as the start of the tournament nears, this will be opened up for anyone who wishes to have more than one team.

How to enter

The entrance fee is £2.00 (Ensure payment is made as friends & family to avoid the fees). Payments must be made by PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account to pay via PayPal (you get an option to pay by card or sign-in to your pay pal account) and I can assure you it is 100% secure and safe to use and none of your details will be revealed to me or anyone else. If you are not comfortable paying by PayPal perhaps you can give the money to someone who is and get them to do so on your behalf.

To enter, please make a payment to my email address: BICKY1980@HOTMAIL.COM via Paypal

Please ensure you enter your Bolton Nut's user name so we can easily identify who has made a payment.  If you have any question please feel free to ask. Thanks for taking part!

How a team is assigned

The teams will be randomly assigned to each entrant using a random list generator.  This will be recorded and will be streamed to prove the draw has been performed fairly.

The site I will use will be http://www.sweepstakegenerator.com/free-russia-world-cup-2018-sweepstake

Good luck everyone!

I doubt we will get 32 individuals playing so I suggest people can buy up to two teams at this stage (but only if BTID is happy with this suggestion?), and maybe even more later on depending however many teams are left.

As per usual I will underwrite the whole thing, meaning I'll buy up any remaining teams there may be just before the World Cop kicks off.  This will mean the competition will go ahead no matter what.

I've suggested that the teams aren't revealed until ALL the teams have been paid for - on previous occasions all the 'good' teams had been drawn out and it was unfair on the latecomers wanting to chip in and play, knowing they were going to draw a crap team no matter what.

Hopefully everything will work out well as it seems to have done so in all the other competitions that we've had on here, so please feel free to start putting up your stake money, for what is essentially just a bit of fun.

Thank you.

Sluffy, the teams are only drawn once all teams have been purchased.

I will leave it as one per team in case there are more than 16 people who want to play

On paypal when youve put the amount in there is a bit underneath where it says you can change it from paying for goods to paying a friend or family

I've tried that. Maybe it's because it's using my debit card. Will try a bank transfer next week.

I would enter but seems a bit of a stretch to get 32 entries.

Would we just have a group each.

I'll open it up to multiple entries to complete the 32 teams in a couple of days.
