Paddy Power – beat the drop
I wonder if you can guess what TV show Paddy Power’s beat the drop promotions got it’s name from? The idea here is you start off with your pot of money and then work backwards by answering questions and choosing how much of your pot you risk on each answer. It is kind of like betting in reverse, you start off with the maximum winnings and then choose how much you give away depending on how confident you are of your answers.
All customers will be eligable to play up to one game each day (you can only play one game at a time, each time a game finishes you can re-enter the next day). This gives you a starting pot of £1,000. You then have to answer 12 questions. Each round gives you a choice between two questions to answer, as you can see in the examples below.
Choose how much of your pot you want to risk on the outcome, this could be the whole £1,000 on one answer right down to a £500 split on each, depending on how confident you are and how much cash you want to risk. Once the outcome to the first question is known then you will get back the amount you bet on the answer.

ITV7 is a free-to-play game by ITV and Sky Bet where players have the chance to win huge prizes of £50,000+. It’s a simple game to play and will appeal to horse racing enthusiasts as well as anyone else who wants to be in with a risk-free chance of winning cash prizes. To play the ITV7 competition, you simply need to select 7 horses which you believe will win the 7 selected races on any given day the competition is running. If you correctly predict all 7 winners, you share the prize pool equally with any other winners.
The game works similar to Sky Bet’s Super 6 except that the ITV seven competition is focussed around horse racing rather than football and the competition also runs more frequently whereas Super 6 is usually available on a weekly basis. To enter ITV 7, you need an account with either Sky Bet, Sky Games, Super 6, Fantasy Football or Sporting Life Pick 7 account. All of those accounts are connected so if you have just one, you can access all of the others. You can also register an account directly via the ITV7 website. Once registered, log into your account and simply select a horse from each of the 7 races.
