No Question in my mind i should have won on that 06-02-2018 Football Sweepstake (Let it go now Chris, still not right though) i got no reply to my request to check my HISTORY on that game, a shame they normally do this & put things right but not this time.

The RESULTS have not been confirmed yet for the latest SWEEPSTAKE featuring tonight's Euro Champions League Games featuring...but i know i won on this one, so KARMA take a Bow (kinda)

JUVENTUS v TOTTENHAM...it seemed like a DRAW was the most likely result here & so it was...BIG TICK.
Spurs have been in GREAT FORM all season except for that one slight blimp for a month or so & JUVE are also in great form, so figured they'd cancel each other out.

BASEL v MANCHESTER CITY...it would have been a huge surprise given what's happened so far this season had CITY not got an away win in Switzerand but i didn't expect a 0-4 thrashing though Smile i had us winning this perhaps 0-2 so delighted with this one & TICK.

I WON Cool

Question is how many folks picked these two results? how many WINNERS are there?

I don't think these were especially too difficult to call?
But perhaps a majority might have gone with Juventus to have edged out Spurs but anyone that listened or watched this match will know that Tottenham after having a nightmare first 10 minutes were the better side...IMPRESSIVE after being 0-2 down.

There was a caller on RADIO 5 live (a Spurs fan) and he was stating how no one gave Tottenham a chance of winning this Champions League & i'm with him, they may not win the Premiership this year but in the Champions League they have already shown they are capable of living with the BIG BOYS & beating them.
I won't be surprised if they see off one of the fav's Juventus & perhaps go on to WIN IT, Why Not?

So yeah i won one of the bigger Sweepstakes...fingers crossed i get paid out on this one?

Good to hear from you again Ken, been awhile.
Could not help but notice your highly impressive weekly score of 100 Smile WOW! those are rarely achieved without a number of other matches included in the weeks game so HAT'S OFF TO YOU MY FRIEND.

This may sound a little strange but i have NEVER taken a screenshot, never felt the need too & to be honest i have no idea how you do such a thing even though i've used computers since the 80's Laughing

As for that missing prize i guess i just expected 888 & others i deal with to be as honest & to honour such things! i figure they must have the HISTORY RECORDS of those people that that play these games, otherwise how do they issue the PRIZES? and there is NO WAY i would ask for a prize or anything i was not entitled too.

So i'll have to let it go on that old prize gone missing but i have just been awarded my part of that $1,000 sweep, it looks like the majority did go with Juventus win? and because of that it was a a half decent amount surpassing that $3 i should have won.
A kind of KARMA i suppose, so i'm OK with it...a nice $4 amount, although i ALWAYS lose the BIG awards Cry but perhaps this time KARMA will be kind to me?

Thanks for the tip Ken but i really have never taken a screenshot in my life so i have no clue how to do so...is it easy? a one button press perhaps? if as easy as that i may try it.

Prefer to TRUST folks (you came through for me with that Hoodie, cheers again mate, i'll wear this & post a pic holding aloft my 1:1 real life size World Cup replica SHOULD ENGLAND WIN as i hope & predict this year...come on England...this time more than any other time this time we'll get it right Laughing classic so BAD it's strangely good old ENGLAND World Cup Song)

Enjoying the Fantasy League battle this year...thankfully after my dreadful one month blip i'm back in it, could be a close call for this month's award too...BEST of LUCK.

Oh one final thing Ken.
And shusshh keep it under your hat but every now & then i will pick a result or two even that you really shouldn't go for...a surprise result...in the sweep.

It's worth doing perhaps once for every five sweeps because you could win a huge slice of a sweep if the majority go for the obvious choices...i'm sure you do this also?

Not won one of these yet because surprise, surprise, the favourites tend to win Laughing so perhaps scrap everything i just said Yell

Cheers Chris (Cryptic)
NOT just one button then Smile i knew there was a reason i'd never done it before!

Still, i'll read trough it all again & consider it but i do prefer to just be honest with myself & hope that others are honest in return (i know in this world of ours thesedays it's a very old fashioned way of thinking & going about things...but i prefered the old ways (in some respects))

Appreciate you posting this link though.

It also hasn't gone unnoticed how well your doing in our Fantasy League with me.

Break time this weekend...FA CUP...still love this competition but i think the time has come to dump what i still call the OLD League Cup tournament & then perhaps introduce a Winter Break towards mid to late January for perhaps 2 weeks (whilst still retaining our TRADITIONAL Christmas & New Year's Festive schedule that many of us LOVE)

Think you'll be waiting awhile Ken Smile
That having been said, strangely my KARMA seems to be working!

Got ANOTHER win on the Sweepstakes tonight.

Not only did i recieve that Spurs/City $4 sweepstakes prize but amazingly i have also WON tonight's which again i didn't think was too difficult, i could understand the majority going for a Juventus win given their HOME form but i just thought (like you...well done mate) that Spurs are as good as anyone right now & are proving it.

Tonight (15-02-2018) it was B. Dortmund with a Home win (most would have gone for this?) & an Arsenal away win was surely a given? & so it was, so i expect this $500 sweepstake win to be around a penny Laughing because of this.

They seem to round up or down these prizes so probably closer to 50c or a dollar?

I'm trusting 888 pays out on this one too rather than having to take a screenshot at the time (it's a sad state of affairs if we must do this each & everytime right Ken? & they're records must show that if we win these sweeps? even that unpaid 06 won...it's OK i've let it go, honest, although i still don't know why they didn't pay out on that one? Cry but KARMA seems to be with me)

If not then i may have to head over to that link & do the screenshot thing but let's hope not hey?

Nice win, the best one i won was on boxing day... think about 7 people got all 4 results and it was a $1000 prize pool!

Didnt win anything off the bets though, annoying you have to play through them 3 times

Cheers dchoo.
Unlucky not winning on such a BIG win 7 people into $1000....approx $175 each that!!!
Blimey had you won with such a BIG starting point you'd have won well...sorry you didn't.

Funny you should reply at this time as i've won a good few Sweepstakes of late (that KARMA really did come) but could i win some money off any of these wins?

Lost the $7 free bet

However i did win a sweepstake to the value of $3 which i bet on that away win for Napoli (great odds btw) coupled with the Athletico Madrid home win so on BET Number 1 my total win was $15.38.

Followed this up with the 2 other bets of $3 (making 3 x $3 bets) and both failed to top up my win above of $15.38 so deduct the 2 x $3 so minus $6 from this & i have been awaiting my payment of $9.38 into my CASH ACCOUNT but so far nothing.

Shall wait a day to see if it's just delayed? but i have completed the criterea of betting this sweepstake win award x 3 times (3 x the $3 awarded) but so far NO $9.38 CASH.
Just hoping i don't have to chase them up again for this?

I understand the having to bet your awarded amount 3 times further otherwise let's be honest people would be winning money left, right & centre off this free sweepstake but having done so they should then pay up...my last (3rd bet was for a Man U vs Chelsea draw) so lost this but expected to have been paid up today!

Have mentioned this before & whilst i understand many winning these prizes trying to go BIG? they rarely pay off so i'm rather careful with that 1st free bet you need to make (usually a good odds single draw close to 3-1 get that & you should come away with something)

$9.38 ain't a huge amount especially when converted to £'s but it's something!

Just hope i don't have to chase them up yet again.
GL dchoo.
