THE first round of the eagerly-anticipated Ladbrokes Tipster Contest kicked off at 00.01 on Monday morning with ex-pat Danny, who lives in Perth, Australia, up against Airdrie's David Smith.

They'll each start with a mythical £1,000 and go head-to-head against each other for the next 7 days to see who can win the most money.

I posted up the rules previously but just to make sure everything is in order and easy to follow I've re-capped them below again.

  • All players will start their games with a mythical £1,000 betting fund and you can stake from £50 to £1,000 on any football bet provided Ladbrokes have priced it up.
  • Stakes have to be quoted as do all prices and they have to be Ladbrokes' odds. If you're backing an accumulator please provide the individual odds as well the combined odds. Perms are not allowed. In-running bets are not allowed. And bets must only be on football.
  • You can bet on any football market provided by Ladbrokes but winnings won't be allocated if no price is quoted. All tips must be posted before the start of the relevant event, for example by 2.59pm for a 3pm kick-off.
  • Each person must over the course of the week-long contest must place a minimum of 20 bets so the £1,000 stake is utilised. This is to prevent a contestant sitting on his pot. Minimum take £50.
  • Single or accumulated odds must be 1-4 or above.
  • You cannot copy exactly the same bet as your opponent. You can however include the same bet in an accumulator that includes at least one different selection.
  • The winner will be the person who has accumulated most winnings, including stakes, by the deadline for the tie. But if one of the players loses his £1000 pot before the deadline his opponent will be declared the winner. Winnings can be staked so if your pot increases above £1,000 you have that money to play with. Stakes will be included in winning bets.
  • In the unlikely event of a draw in any of the tipping head to heads there will be a tiebreak contest to decide the winner.
  • All bets must have been settled by the close of the competition, i.e. by 23:59 on the Sunday evening otherwise the bet will be declared void.
  • In the event of any disputes Mr Fixit's decision will be declare void.

Although there are prizes up for grabs please remember this is also a bit of fun. So good luck to Danny and David in Round 1.

Let battle commence.

  17. Chris Guy 6 years ago

    AI did you not read the rules? Your bets is not valid as you have not stated 4/1 @ Ladbrokes. Just thought I’d give you a little friendly reminder.

    • Milesey 6 years ago

      AL isn’t playing anyway is he ?

      Thought it is between Danny and David ?


      • Milesey 6 years ago

        pardon ? your confusing me.

        There is a David Smith first post on here, thought that’s who is playing against DANNY ?


        • Mr Fixit 6 years ago

          Milesey, to confirm Danny IS playing David Smith who hasn’t put up a bet up yet. Al posted a bet but it was just a test so hopefully we’re all clear now.

          • Milesey 6 years ago

            okay so Danny isn’t playing AL then hahaha ;)


      • Mr Fixit 6 years ago

        Milesey, actually when I look at it Al is Al from Blackburn who has sent that bet but I think he has sent it as a test. I’ve checked with admin who say he’s playing later in the contest and he is not David Smith so he’s confused us all. I am going to delete his post and David hasn’t put up a bet yet.

        • Milesey 6 years ago

          Didn’t think he had, can see Danny has put 2 doubles up, but David hasn’t placed anything yet, was just asking a question at the top of this thread.


          • Mr Fixit 6 years ago

            Milesey, he confused me because as you know the user name doesn’t haven’t be your name but admin were aware he had just sent a test. Been busy this morning so just going take a look at the card to see if it’s worth having a bet.

        • Milesey 6 years ago

          It’s a slow day, not enough football for any tips today MR F ?


          • Mr Fixit 6 years ago

            Milesey, I’ll put something on the footie up soon but as you say not much happening today.

      • AL 6 years ago

        No I’m not playing this week, not involved until the end of march! Thought I was on another page when I commented with my bet on the superbowl! Good luck to danny & david, this should be interesting!

        • Mr Fixit 6 years ago

          Al, it’s not you who put the test up, it was the other Al.

          • Milesey 6 years ago

            So what you saying Mr F, it wasn’t AL it was AL, so what AL was it then ? Bloooooooooooody AL hahaha ;)

  26. AL (Phd) 6 years ago

    I’ve put (Phd) after my username so there’s no confusion between al’s from now on.

    And before anyone asks, I’m not a doctor! ha

    • Mr Fixit 6 years ago

      AL, that’s good don’t want you and Dr Chris Guy getting into medical debates.

    i would like to go for

    BET 1 olimpo @ 1/2 to beat crucerro del norte
    £50 win

    its not much of a night for betting as ive never heard of most of the teams

    hopefully olimpo who are top of the table can beat there mid table opponents


  29. david smith 6 years ago

    dont know if i have to say BET 1 will pay £150 @ladbrokes

    • Mr Fixit 6 years ago

      David, you don’t have to tell us what it pays but surely £50 at 1-2 is £75. Welcome to the game – and buy yersel a calculator.

  30. david smith 6 years ago

    sorry cant count BET 1 plays £75


  31. Danny 6 years ago

    ohhh crap just looked at flash score couldnt have had a worse start if I tryed

        a just woke up Paul and am firing one straight back to get on track if it doesnt win my remaining 600 will have to be shrewdly utilized at the weekend

        • Mr Fixit 6 years ago

          OK, good luck Danny. I’ll look at Tuesday games in the morning. You should have been on my Wycombe and McClure bet tonight.
