Prizes

What are the Prizes? 


Tipsters can (and in many cases probably will) win more than one prize. For example it is particularly likely that the overall winner may get another prize. Prizes will be credited to your "Real Cash" balance at the end of every month. Where there are tied positions for 1st, 2nd or 3rd the prize money will be split at our discretion on an equitable basis. 
No tipster can earn a prize if they made a loss in the month no matter where they finish.

Did I win a Prize?


Every month on the first of the month we publish the results of last month in the OLBG Help forum. This will normally be announced between 11am and 3pm on the 1st of the month, but please don't chase us about this until the 2nd. A list of the previous months winners is also available on the winners page

How do I claim a Payment?


If your balance is $10 or more you can claim a prize by going to the "My Info" page in the members area and scrolling to the bottom right to find a Claim button. 
We pay paypal or moneybookers for $10 or more.
Please allow up to 30 days for payment and note that due to the large volume of prizes and payments we typically will only make one payment run per month.

Wheres my money?


Prizes will be credited to your "Real Cash" balance at the end of every month. 
Moneybookers or Paypal transfers will be issued on application each month to any player having a total balance of $10 or more 
Balances below $10 are carried forward indefinitely. Please allow 30 days to receive payment.

I thought I should get a prize but didnt?


Don't forget that league tables on the last day of the month don't include the final days tips. Hence its the results after those tips are processed that count. 
Some people do make "all or nothing" type bets on the last day and this can lead to some changes in the rankings. 
Also note that if you did not make sufficient tips or you made a loss then you will not qualify for a prize.
