Give him credit, Ruslan Kogan is putting his money where his mouth is. He’s put $1,000,000 on the line in a World Cup tipping competition. All you’ve got to do is pick the winner of every single world cup game. That’s easy right? Good luck!
The challenge appears simple right? Nope. 48 group games, three outcomes possible in each – that’s tough. IN fact, I’m no mathematician, but the number of alternatives possible is enormous. Many millions of millions of combinations.
Scroll through the terms and conditions and you’ll see that it’s one entry per person, and they’ll crack down on people trying to register email accounts just for this – how I’ve got no idea, and crucially, the competition is limited to the first 1,000,000 entrants only.
In terms of guaranteed prizes – the best five tipsters score a $500 Kogan voucher, the next 50 best get a $50 voucher.
Oh, and if you happen to be a joint winner of the million dollars – the money is split between winners.
Hey, it’s worth a try right?
