As you will be well aware, the FIFA World Cup 2022 tournament in Qatar gets underway this weekend with the host nation taking on Ecuador in the opening game in Group A at 4pm on Sunday 20th November.

We’ve been previewing the tournament in a series of four articles, looking at the eight groups that will comprise the first phase of the finals, and this week, bet365 Sport has announced that it is running not one, but two exciting promotions, both of which are completely free to play.

We are going to bring you more details on the 4 Scores Challenge game next week as this offer is available throughout the World Cup Finals, but the first promotion needs you to have your entry completed by Sunday’s kick off time of that first game we mentioned previously.

So whether your interest is in Argentina in Group C, or perhaps you are more a Spain or Germany fan in Group E or you want to check up on the World Cup favourites Brazil in Group G, then you can participate in these promotions free of charge to enhance your World Cup experience further.

Let’s now take a look at the Tournament Predictor in a bit more detail.

Bet365 Tournament Predictor

Bet365’s Tournament Predictor is a very simple promotion to enter. All you need to do is predict how each of the eight groups in the opening phase of the tournament will finish.

Then, from your predictions, you then need to predict which team will win each of the subsequent Round of 16, Quarter Final, Semi Final and Final matches, through to deciding who you think will be World Cup Winner.

For each prediction you make correctly, you will be awarded points, with the number of points on offer increasing as the tournament progresses.

If you manage to finish inside the top 10,000 entries into the tournament, then you will win a cash prize. The higher up that leaderboard you finish, then the greater the value of the prize you will win.

However, if you correctly predict everything in the World Cup, then you will win a jackpot prize of £1,000,000.

That all sounds nice and simple enough, so let’s now take you through the key terms and conditions of the offer before we focus on the process of how to play.

How To Play Tournament Predictor

There are two distinct parts when making your entry into the Tournament Predictor but before you do that, you need to log in to your bet365 account and then head over to the Tournament Predictor promotional page.

When there click the button to start making your entry into the tournament.

  • Part One – The Group Phase

The opening phase of the tournament sees the 32 teams competing drawn into eight groups of four. Your task for the first part of the prediction game is to predict the finishing position of each of the four teams in each of the eight groups.

You do this by dragging the team into the 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th position in the group as you see fit.

Each team plays the other team in its group once, so remember it is the finishing positions after all group games (3 per team) you are predicting, not the positions after one game.

Once you have completed this for all eight groups, you can then click on the prompt to take you into the second part of the entry.

  • Part Two – The Knockout Phase

One of the most notable things about a World Cup is that the path for a team to the final is decided when they are drawn into a group, as the draw for the Round of 16 and the rounds onwards are all decided in advance.

So when you have made your Group Stage picks, the top two teams in each group that you selected will be placed into the Round of 16 draw populated by the predictions you made.

You then need to select which team will win, either by full time result, extra time or even by penalties, the game in question.

You need to do this for all eight Round of 16 games, plus the four quarter finals, two semi-finals and the final, at which point you will have the team you have picked as World Cup winners.

Once completed, simply click the button to make your entry into the tournament.

You have until 4pm on Sunday 20th November to make your entry, after which entries into the promotion will close.

You are also free to edit your predictions at any point up until 4pm on Sunday 20th November too, should you wish to make a change.

How Are The Points Awarded For The Tournament Predictor?

Your finishing position in the tournament will be decided by how many points you collect for making correct predictions throughout the tournament.

Points are awarded differently at each stage of the tournament, so let’s take a look at how you can earn points first in the Group Stage and then for the whole Knockout Stage.

Group Stage Points

  • 10 Points per correct position for a team predicted
  • 10 Points bonus if you correctly predict all the finishing positions of all four teams in any group.

You can earn 50 points per group maximum in the early stages of the tournament for a maximum of 400 points.

Knockout Stage Points

  • 20 Points for each Round of 16 winner predicted correctly (160 points maximum)
  • 40 Points for each Quarter Final winner predicted correctly (160 points maximum)
  • 80 Points for each Semi Final winner predicted correctly (160 points maximum)
  • 160 Points for predicting the World Cup Final winner – (160 points maximum)

With a maximum of 160 points available in each Knockout Stage phase, that means there are 640 points available in the knockout phase, meaning you’ll need to score 1,040 points in order to land the Jackpot Bonus of £1,000,000.

What Prizes Are On Offer For The Tournament Predictor?

There are a total of 10,000 guaranteed prizes available for the tournament predictor, with the top prize guaranteed to be £100,000.

The jackpot prize would be shared in the event of multiple players having the highest possible points score.
