Imagine the perfect scenario in which you receive a gift which allows you to predict the outcomes of all 64 matches at the upcoming World Cup in Russiaâ€¦ To prove that life isn't just about playing games of skill, PokerStars has announced one of the biggest challenges in sports betting, and it's entirely free to enter. If your country of residence is UK, Denmark, Norway, Finland or Sweden, brace yourself, as you might walk away with £100 million in cash after July 15th, or the competition's closing day.
Although it sounds easy, predicting the winner of every match at this year's (or any other) World Cup is a mission impossible. Apart from the fact that such a venture represents every bookmaker's dream, getting all results correct would certainly overthrow a couple of theorems in modern theoretical probability and statistics, as chances for figuring out the outcomes are possible only for time-travelers. However, predictive models can provide some value, as variability is always more stable in finishing. Of course, everyone knows that Germany is probably in the finals, after skipping an uncomfortable penalty shootout with 5 top-ranking teams: Brasil, Argentina, France, Spain or Portugal.
A £100 Million Challenge is simple in terms of rules; predict the winner of every match by opting for win, lose or draw and the money is yours! The score line is not necessary, and operators will give more entries for completing extra tasks on BetStars, PokerStars and various casino games. More importantly, a second pick will let all players have another go at the selections, so take a moment to process the benefits of this offer before closing.
Furthermore, there are hundreds of other prizes waiting, in case lower-ranking teams make a breakthrough after the first phase. Each entry will be entered into the Leaderboard Challenge, so that players can track their progress against friends, family and other participants. The top 1,000 entrants will be awarded with an awesome selection of prizes, including $10,000 in real cash, a Platinum Pass and a seat in the PokerStars Players No Limit Hold'em Championship in the Bahamas, which kicks off in January 2019!
FIFA World Cup 2018 predictions can be found all over the Internet, but if you prefer your own strategy, go ahead. To repeat, prizes are paid in local currency, depending on the country of residence. Best of luck!
