Round 01: Review

Five of the top seven places are occupied by inexperienced players after the first Round of Game 02. From Martin Magookin in top spot on 12 points, through Lloyd Hide (11), Neale Ray (10), Scott Symonds (10) and Miles Chapman (8) – all have only played one Game of Premier Predictions until now.

Magoo’s first round score of 12 probably won’t remain the at the top of the One Round Wonder table for very long at all and with just three rounds in January’s Player of the Month, there’s no clear pacesetter/s with five points covering the top 15 places.

Round 02: Preview

With no matches next weekend (26th & 27th January) due to the FA Cup, this weekend’s matches are last until a full midweek programme on Tuesday and Wednesday the following week – so don’t forget those. This weekend’s Round is also one of just two left in January, which is a three round Player-of-the-Month.

Round 02 is squeezed into just two days this weekend, with a huge eight matches scheduled for Saturday, the first of which is Wolves v Leicester at lunchtime. After that there is unusually six matches at three o’clock, these are followed by the teatime match, Arsenal v Chelsea at 5:30pm.

Sunday sees just two matches being played. Man City travel to Huddersfield for the half-past-one kick -off while Fulham host Tottenham at teatime (4pm).

Another Way to Win: Fourth Place Prize

Ten percent of the Prize Fund will now be given over to create a prize for the player finishing in fourth place at the end of the Game. With all of the other prize positions and achievements on offer, that’s now a dozen ways of winning money in Premier Predictions.

Players who would have benefited from this prize previously are Simon Allen, Martin Hayman and Ian Hodgson, all of whom have finished fourth on two occasions each.

Of course, to make that fourth place ten percent available something has to give, and that something is the top two positions. The prize share for the Overall Winner has been reduced from 25% to 20% while the Runner-up share has been reduced from 20% to 15%.

How the prize fund is split out can be seen in the Rules of Premier Predictions, or read the recent news item about Prizes and Entries for this Game.

Twenty Point Jackpot: Ain’t Reset

The Jackpot will be £22 for Round 02 and will continue to grow at the rate of £1 per Round until somebody achieves the magical 20 points. Should there be no winner in Game 02, then the prize will be rolled-over into next season and would start at £38.
