Play Free Prediction Games From UK Bookmakers
Most football supporters will have heard of Sky Sports's free to play prediction game Super Six. Every week Jeff Stelling and the Soccer Saturday boys get involved and there's usually a £250,000 prize on offer - occasionally this may rise to one million. To play Super Six you need to predict the results of six featured football matches. To win the jackpot you need to get all six results correct, but there's a consolation prize for the highest scorer if all results aren't achieved.
No doubt encouraged by the success of Super 6, other bookmakers now run their own free prediction games. These include 888 Sport's Up For 8, Paddy Power's Hit The Spot, Grosvenor's Goals and Coral's Correct 4. Not all of these games are weekly and not all games are successful. For the chance to win cash prizes or bonus bets you use your skill and judgement to predict football results, goal scorers and/or horse racing winners. All the listed games are free to play and no deposit is needed to participate.

Why Do Bookies Offer Free Play Games?
Bookies offer these free games because they hope that they will encourage you to bet for real. In other words they act as a hook into the site. They're perfect for when big events such as The Grand National, World Cup or Six Nations aren't on. For example once you've made your predictions for Super Six or ITV 7 you're given the odds and how much you'd win should you wish to have a punt. Games like Super Six also exist because the big jackpots are hard to win whilst the guaranteed prizes are easily made up through bets or advertising revenue (as in the case of Soccer Saturday).
Most of the free games featured will require you to be a registered user of the bookie hosting the competition. However, unless clearly stated, you don't have to deposit or bet to play the games. All games are aimed at UK residents aged 18 and over. Wagering terms may apply to any free bets that are awarded. The information given was correct at time of writing. Begambleaware.org.
