Paddy Power are one of the leading bookmakers when it comes to offers and promotions, with the Irish operator always looking for fun ways to engage with their customers and we’re currently enjoying Beat the Drop.
Beat the Drop gives you the chance to play for cash prizes and customers can win amounts up to £1,000,000 by making predictions regarding upcoming sporting events.
This prediction competition is open to new and existing customers at Paddy Power. You simply have to visit the promotion page and choose your stake. This can be either £2, £5, £10, £20 or £50 depending on the amounts that you want to play for. We suggest you keep the stakes small until you’ve got the hang of the game.
Customers can then set the number of questions that they want to answer. Naturally, the bigger the number of questions means that you are able to increase the pot, although this carries a greater risk as you have to carry the money through more rounds.
Once the game has been launched, you can then choose your first fixture and get started! It’s a case of choosing the market that you think will be correct for that sporting event. You can choose to either split your pot or alternatively go “all in” on a particular outcome and hope to be proved right.
Some customers choose to play the game cautiously and split stakes for a number of outcomes, while others take a more aggressive approach. Providing that you have money in the pot, you can keep progressing to the next round and any money that remains by the final round is yours to keep.
In order to stand a chance of winning that massive cash prize of £1,000,000, you must select the £50 staking option and also the maximum number of questions. The format works in the same was as the Million Pound Drop that you might have seen on TV although betting markets replace general knowledge questions at Paddy Power.
New customers to Paddy Power can claim a £20 Risk-Free Bet to get them started, with money back in cash if your first real money bet loses with this popular bookmaker.
There is also the chance to claim weekly free bets thanks to Paddy’s Rewards Club which means that being a loyal customer has several benefits, including being entered into prize draws for VIP trips to high-profile sporting events.
