OLBG gives away more than £1m to tipsters
Leading affiliate gives away nearly 77,000 prizes – with some winners netting £9,000 each.
Sports betting community and affiliate OLBG has now given away more than £1m to users in its popular free-to-enter tipster competitions.
The contest, launched back in August 2003, offers players the chance to enter competitions across 22 sports.
Players win prizes based on their tips on sports including football, horse racing, baseball, basketball, boxing, cricket, darts, golf, greyhounds, handball, motor racing, American football, ice hockey, rugby, snooker, tennis and volleyball.
They can also offer tips on more niche markets such as esports and politics, while the site has also recently added Gaelic sports, Aussie rules and lacrosse to the competition.
Each month OLBG gives away £7,100 in cash, with more than 800 individual prizes on offer. The largest prize fund is for football tips, with £2,100 given away each month, followed by horse racing at £1,600.
“Our tipster competitions have been fundamental in building our engaged sports betting community. Many of our members have been using OLBG on a daily basis for years,” said Richard Moffat, CEO at OLBG.
“Over 500,000 users have joined OLBG, with several thousand taking part in the competitions on a daily basis. This creates a huge amount of valuable content for those who like to follow tips and learn betting strategies.
“For some, it’s the challenge of proving themselves and winning prize money, others find it helps them with their own betting by recording their reasoning for each bet and being able to analyse their records. And for many, it’s a bit of free fun with the chance to win cash prizes.
“We believe that the OLBG tipster competitions are the most comprehensive free-to-enter contests available and the first ever to pass the £1m milestone. We look forward to giving away even more cash to our loyal users in the future, they deserve every penny they receive.”
Some 10 members have won more than £5,000 each, with two members surpassing £9,000. Some of the top tipsters have also built up big followings, with one having more than 50,000 followers on the OLBG app.
As well as cash, OLBG members can accumulate OLBG crowns via their tipping and other community contributions. These can be exchanged in the OLBG store for merchandise, including the famous orange and black OLBG scarves.
