SBAT's Scoop6 picks
What is Betfred Scoop 6?
Saturdays Betfred Scoop6 is a competition the bookmaker put on weekly to give all us punters the chance to win a lot of money. All you need to do is pick the winners of six different horse races, and it would change your life forever. If there is no winner one week, the jackpot will be carried over to the following Saturday. Previously, the jackpot has reached as high as £11 million, which is life-changing money if you guess correctly.
How does Betfred Scoop6 work?
With the huge amount of money up for grabs, many will now be asking how do you get involved? Well, it’s very simple. It is very similar to how the lottery works. You pay £2 for a line, which is one horse from each of the selected races each Saturday. If you would like to pick more than one horse in all, or a few of the races then you can, but it will come at an extra cost. Wondering how to work out the overall cost? Check out our guide of Betfred and Totesport Scoop Six here.
You may think it’s really tough to pick six winners in one day. However, you have a back up with something called the Scoop Six place fund. This is another pot, giving you the chance to win a good lump sum of money if all six of your horse’s place in their races. Remember, different races have a different amount of places up for grabs.
To make things even better, if you win the Scoop 6, you will then have the chance to win something else called the Scoop 6 bonus. You will get the chance to pick one horse in the bonus race the following week. If you win, you are looking at bagging yourself another fortune, with the pot once rising to as much as £5 million (not always the case).
The last competition you will be entered into will be the Starting Fund pot. This makes sure there is always a rollover for the following week. 5% of the current jackpot will be moved into a separate pot which will get the following week’s competition up and running if there is a winner the week before.
