The "Business Solutions" tag can be found on the website footer.

14. How is the Groups punctuation determined?


The points are determined by the following criteria, non-cumulative:
Predicting that the game will have a winner.
Correct exact score – 25 points.
Correct score of the winning team – 18 points.
Correct difference in goals between the winner and the loser - 15 points.
Correct score of the losing team – 12 points.
Just the winning team is correct – 10 points.

Predicting that the match will finish tied.
Correct exact score – 25 points.
Correct tie not exact – 15 points.

Stimulated Prediction (guessed on the tied score and a team won) – 04 points.
These points will be multiplied by the game weight.
For group scoring purposes, in all games, only the normal time result (1st. and 2nd. half) will be considered. The results of extra time or penalty disputes will not be considered.

15. Why does my Football Group no longer appear on the homepage?


On the homepage you can find all the groups related to active championships. After 7 calendar days of the championship end, the group will be filed in the "History" tag.

16. How do the games weight work?


The championships begin with the games weight equal to 10 and each games week the weight increases by 1, with the following exception:

The championships with less than 60 days, like the World Cup, the weight will increase by 1 each day of matches, instead of games week.

17. Why does the stimulated prediction exist?


When you guess on a tie you can score points on the following criteria:
Predicting that the match will finish tied.
Correct exact score – 25 points.
Correct tie not exact – 15 points.

When you guess that one of the teams will win you can score points on the following criteria:

Predicting that the game will have a winner.
Correct exact score – 25 points.
Correct score of the winning team – 18 points.
Correct difference in goals between the winner and the loser - 15 points.
Correct score of the losing team – 12 points.
Just winning team is correct – 10 points.

So the guess on the tie score is statistically the one with less probability. For not leaving this option unused by VIP Predictor users, we created the Stimulated Prediction. In this case you just need to predict the tie and you already ensure at least 04 points.

Proven with the website history, the user that only uses this criterion will score in all matches; however, he/she will be far from winning the dispute, because it is a criterion that is very low scored.

18.Can anyone see the predictions that I entered?


No one can see your predictions until 5 minutes before the corresponding game. After this period, Bolão Vip closes the possibility to predict and the corresponding prediction may be consulted by any person.
With this Bolão Vip allows the full transparency of the groups.

19. Is there a possibility of having a tie in the ranking of the Group I participate? What are the tie-breaker criteria?


There is no possibility of a tie. The tie-breaker criteria used, in this order, are:
The greatest number of correct score in full;
The greatest number of correct winner's score;
The greatest number of correct difference of goals;
The greatest number of correct loser's score;
The greatest number of correct winners;
The greatest advance of predictions (accumulated time);
The exact date and time of the day that entered the group;
