🏅HOW POINTS ARE AWARDED FOR CORRECT PREDICTIONS:

STAGE ONE: GROUP STAGE & TOP SCORER

  • In order to receive points, each participant must predict the correct order of teams in each of the groups. In total, there are 8 groups, with 4 teams per group.
  • Each correct prediction is awarded 10 points
  • If the predicted ranking in a group is correct, the participant is awarded 40 points.

4 teams x 10 points = 40 points.

  • If all of the groups are correctly predicted the participant is awarded 320 points.

8 groups x 40 points = 320 points.

  • If a participant selects the top scorer of the tournament correctly, they are awarded a number of points determined by the likelihood that player will indeed be the top scorer. Please refer to the below chart listing the points awarded for each of the 20 players most expected to be named Top Scorer.
  • In the event that someone other than one of these top 20 players is named top scorer of the tournament, and a Stones Madness: Bracket Challenge predicts this by choosing the “other” selection, this participant will win 750 points!
