Pools Jackpot Hat-Trick as Football Masterminds Out-Score Hansen and Barnes
This weekend marked a third successive jackpot payout for The New Football Pools – which sees three fans scooping a total of over £500,000 in jackpots over the past three weeks for correctly predicting the outcomes of the week’s selected football fixtures.
The jackpots were won on the two new pools games, Premier 10 and Footy 15, both of which are brand new for the 2008/9 football season on www.footballpools.com.
This week’s jackpot was won on Footy 15, which saw one lucky fan win £100,000 for correctly predicting the fifteen top fixtures. Last weekend another player went even better in scooping a staggering £300,000 rollover jackpot by correctly predicting the fifteen fixtures – a win made all the more impressive when considering all of the fixtures were made up of International World Cup qualifiers.
The wins see fans out-predicting the official Pools Pundits Alan Hansen and John Barnes, who every week give their predictions on the Premier 10 and Footy 15 fixtures at www.footballpools.com; says Alan Hansen, “A hat-trick of winners! It’s an incredible feat to get all fifteen fixtures right, this goes to show there are some fantastic footballing brains out there. I’m going to have to watch out for my job!”
Anyone following John Barnes’ predictions this week would have been in the money, as anyone correctly picking eleven scores or more is guaranteed a cash payout. Says John Barnes, “I thought I did pretty well getting twelve out of the fifteen right this week. It just goes to show that anyone can put their love of football to good use and make a huge difference to their bank balance.”
Premier 10 is also seeing regular jackpot winners, including a recent £100,000 rollover jackpot win for football mad Anthony Morris, from Harrow who correctly predicted all ten Premier League games for the first weekend of October. In only his second week of playing Premier 10 Anthony followed his head over his heart and backed Hull City to beat his beloved Spurs to net the £100,000 rollover jackpot.
Despite his mini tipping betrayal of Tottenham Hotspur, the club welcomed him with open arms to receive his winning cheque. Presented at White Hart Lane, Anthony promised to spend his wealth wisely: “This win from www.footballpools.com will make a huge difference - now I can buy a flat in Watford and follow the Spurs both at home and abroad.”
Says www.footballpools.com MD Will Muirhead, “We created these new games, Premier 10 and Footy 15, to meet the demands of the modern football fan for a quick, easy and exciting way of testing their football knowledge every week. It’s fantastic that just eight weeks into the season and players have already scooped six-figure jackpots.”
This jackpot bonanza marks the launch of an additional midweek game, ‘Midweek 10’ which launches this week. This new game builds on the excitement of European and domestic cup football – this week including the mouth-watering Champions League fixtures such as Manchester United v Celtic and Juventus v Real Madrid.
