The Tipping Competition

7          The Tipping Competition is a cumulative points competition conducted over 12 Victorian metropolitan race meetings. Upon registration, all entrants are automatically entered into the Sportspick Spring Racing Super Tipper Competition.

8          In each round tipping will be conducted on 5 nominated races from meeting in each respective round; with each round occurring on the following dates:


Round 1




Round 2




Round 3




Round 4




Round 5




Round 6




Round 7




Round 8




Round 9




Round 10




Round 11




Round 12





9          The 5 nominated races for each round will be displayed on the terminals as an entrant submits tips.

10        Entrants will be asked to make a selection in each of the 5 nominated races that constitute a competition round. 
An Entrant’s selections for a round must be placed prior to the running of the first nominated race for that round on the Sportspick terminal/kiosk at any participating registered Sportspick venue. In the event that a venue ceases to conduct its own local race tipping competition, Entrants from that Venue will be able to place selections at any other participating Venue for the purposes of the Sportspick Racing Super Tipper Competition prize pool.

11        Entrants can only place one set of selections per round for each entry in the Competition registered in accordance with condition 2.

12        For the purposes of the Competition a dead heat for first place is regarded as a winner.

13        In the event that an Entrant fails to make selections for a round that Entrant will automatically be credited with the default selections.  The default selections will be the number 1 saddlecloth horse in each race.  If number 1 has been scratched Entrants will be credited with number 2 continuing until they have a runner in the race.  Any Entrant that fails to lodge tips for a round will receive the default selections and can only receive a maximum of 10 points for that meeting.  An Entrant that fails to make selections for a round is ineligible to win the Weekly Prize for that round but will accumulate their winning points for the purposes of an End of Season Prize.  An Entrant that fails to make a selection in four (4) or more of the tipping rounds is ineligible to win an End of Season Prize.

14        If a selection is officially scratched after an Entrant’s selections have been made or if the Entrant makes an invalid selection, then the default selection for that race or races will be applied and the Entrant’s eligibility for a Weekly Prize or End of Season Prize will remain intact.

15        In the event that all nominated races in a round do not take place (abandoned or cancelled), then the round will be declared null and void and the Weekly Prizes for that round will jackpot to the next round.  No winning points will accumulate for any Entrants in respect of such a null and void round.

16        If a nominated race in a round is abandoned or cancelled after the running of the first tipping race in that round, that round will be deemed to be completed and all Entrant selections from that round will be deemed valid. The Weekly Prize will be won by the Entrant with the most points awarded for the completed races in that round; if no races are completed, then the weekly prize will jackpot to the next competition round.

Winner Per Meeting - The “Knockout” Competition

17       There will be a ‘Knockout’ Competition as a separate prize category as part of the in the Spring Racing Tipping Competition.  The Winner Per Meeting Competition is a Knockout competition which is calculated on ONE of the Entrant’s selections winning at each of the 12 race meetings (rounds).  If the Entrant selects at least one winner in round 1 they remain in the Competition.  If the Entrant fails to select a winner in round 1 they are eliminated from the Winner Per Meeting Knockout Competition.  This continues until only one Entrant remains in the Competition who will be declared the winner of the Winner Per Meeting - Knockout Competition.

Point Scoring System

18       Entrants will accrue points on the basis of a $1.00 each way (win and place) on their selection in each of the 5 races.  Points will have a direct correlation to the Victorian SuperTab dividends for each race.  For example:

Race 5





Horse 2




Horse 4




Horse 6




If the Entrant has picked number 2 they accrue 6.5 points from this race (i.e. $1.00 the win and $1.00 the place). If the Entrant picks number 4 they accrue 3.00 points. If the Entrant picks number 6 they accrue 1.5 points. If the Entrant picks an unplaced runner they receive zero points. This system continues for each race for each meeting as scheduled.

Weekly Round Prizes

19        A Weekly Prize for the Competition will be awarded to the Entrant that accumulates the most points each of the 12 competition rounds.

20        Weekly Prize winners will each receive $250 cash.  In the event of tied scores, the prize will be divided evenly amongst those entrants with a tied high score.

21        If a Weekly Prize jackpots in accordance with condition 16, that prize will be added to the Weekly Prize awarded to the winner in that same category in the next round and the prize winner will receive $500.
