Super6 is free competition run by Sky. The aim to to predict 6 scores from the 3 O'Clock kick offs. Predicting 6 results is hard and 6 scores is even harder. If anyone gets all 6 scores, they win a share of £250000 (quarter of a million pounds). If not one gets all 6 then the highest scoring player gets £5000. They use the time of the first goal to decide the winner of that as there are generally multiple winners.
Sky pick 6 games that kick off at 3pm on a Saturday.
You have to predict the scores and a minute of the first goal. You get points by predicting the correct scores or the result. You get 2 points for a correct result and 5 points for a correct score. In order to win the jackpot you need to get 30 points. If no one gets all 6 results the person with the highest points total gets a consolation prize of £5000. The goal minute is used to separate out the the winners of that. If more than one person has the highest score and the same minute, then the prize is shared. If the jackpot is won, all people with 30 points get a share of the prize regardless of the goal minute.
Tips for winning Super 6
- Look at the odds of games. If a team is heavily odds on, may as well back them. Even if you think there's value in the draw or away on average, the odds on favoutite team will pay out more.
- Think of common scores. The most common score is 1-0. Together with 2-0 and 2-1, these make up the majority of the winning scores. You see the odd 3-2, 4-3, etc but they are rare.
- Score draws are more likely than 0-0, with 1-1 being more likely than 2-2 or 3-3. Draws are fairly random but happen more when the teams are evenly matched odds wise (about 2.75 each)
- Slightly contradicting what I said earlier, if you want to win the jackpot pick a score thats rare but not too rare, eg, 3-1, 3-0. Its because people go for the common low scores so when they come in, the jackpot is shared among a lot of people. For example, 10th January 2015, 55 people hit the jackpot. Just 11 goals were scored in the six featured games, with the scores being, 2-1, 2-0, 1-1, 1-1, 1-0 an 1-0. When a mad score like 5-0 crops up, you know there aren't going to be any winners.
Super6 is a fun way to bet for free effectively. Betting might not be the right word. Winning Super6 is more like winning the lottery. You really have to be lucky. With betting, you can win by skill.
