Betfair AFL Competition this Friday Night

July 25th 2019, 6:45pm, By: admin

With the massive clash in the AFL this Friday night between Collingwood and Richmond, we thought we’d add some extra fun to your viewing with a free competition thanks to the folks at Betfair.

All you have to do is nominate what you think the margin will be for Friday night’s can choose between one of the following five options as taken from the “Winning Margin 24.5” market on Betfair:

To enter all you have to do is follow us on our social media channels – Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and post your selection in the competition thread! The competition threads will be pinned to the top of the respective socials, so don't worry about scrolling down to find them! 

e.g. “Collingwood under 24.5pts.”


If you don’t have a Betfair account then click here to open one today!


Once the game concludes, all of those who select the correct margin will go into the random draw to win our prize of the week. So you could go with the most likely pick and have less chance in the random draw against lots of winners, or choose one of the underdog margin picks to have less correct entries to go up against in the draw. The choice is yours!

We’re also going to allow you to enter up to a maximum three times – once for each social media platform. You can choose to post the same pick on each, and if you’re right, you’ll get three entries in the draw. Or you have the option to spread your wings and cover multiple picks for the game outcome to ensure you get at least one chance in the random draw! So post your choice on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to take advantage of the maximum three entries.

And what are we playing for? This week, our competition winner will receive an awesome Betfair branded mobile power bank. This bad boy is the same size as a mobile phone, so it easily slips into your pocket and can charge your phone while you’re on the go! No longer will you have the pain of running out of battery as you’re trying to get your bets on the last race of the day! This power bank is lightweight, super powerful and super convenient!

Entries will close with the first bounce of the ball on Friday night which is 7:50pm AEST, and we’ll run the random draw from the winning entries soon after the game finishes.

Step 1: Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Step2: Make sure you have a Betfair account

Step 3: Choose your margin for Richmond vs Collingwood and post to social media

That’s it! Good luck guys and stay tuned to more fun competitions in the coming weeks!
