Product Offering digitizes and automates the running, management and promotion of popular sports
predictions games, with the last man standing competition (explained below) being the most popular.
Our core game, the last man standing competition, is a knock-out competition where a group of people pay
a fee (generally €10/£10, can be lower) to enter, and compete with each other to win a cash prize, which is
either a percentage of the total raised or a fixed prize as set by the organizer. A popular alternative is to
make the competition free to enter, with a sponsor covering a fixed pot (e.g., €/£500) or a fixed prize (e.g.,
a free trip to a Premiership game).
The parameters for the competition are set by your supporter who starts the game:
Competition start date
Entry fee
Sporting event to run it with
A fixed prize or minimum prize pot
The percentage of the pot to be donated

This game is also fully developed and was previously run between July and August 2014 with the Open
Championship and 4 live championships.
How does it work?
Players pay their entry fee and simply pick a
team of 3 golfers in the tournament with
combined odds of over 100/1. The participant
whose team has the lowest combined scores at
the end of day 4 wins the pot. All 3 of your golfers

Calendar of events

PGA Championship, Aug 13–16
Example of how it would work
John wants to raise money for your charity and checks out your website. He sees the option to run a sports
prediction game and knows his mates would love this. He clicks the link on your website, creates a US
Masters golf competition and connects his Facebook and Twitter account. He also uses the website to send
an email invite to his friends to join in.
Donators now simply go to the page, donate £/€10 to join, select 3 golfers they fancy and optionally share it
further with their friends. The page has a live feed updated every 5 mins and the leaderboard is updated
automatically. At the end of day 4 there’s one winner who cashes out himself online and the funds are
transferred to your charity.
Summary of the Rules
1. The last man standing is for the duration of one tournament only, which is 4 days long generally.
2. Choose a team of 3 golfers with combined odds of over 100/1.
3. All 3 golfers must make the cut after day 2. If they don’t, you’re out.
4. The player whose team of golfers has the lowest combined scores at the end of day 4 wins the pot.

Last Man Standing (ending soon for 2014/15)
We have had over 16,000 paid entrants and over 470 competitions in Ireland and the UK with our flagship
football game. A new set of Premiership competitions will be available to run starting in August, and in
March for the League of Ireland.
Calendar of events
Premiership games run: August–April
NFL games run: August–Dec
League of Ireland games run: March–October
Aviva Rugby Premiership games run: August–April
Example of how a Premiership last man standing works for your charity
Let’s run through an example. John sees his friend’s post on Facebook about the last man standing he’s
running in aid of your charity. He follows the link, registers, donates €10 and picks Chelsea to beat Spurs.
Another 99 people join bringing the pot up to €1,000. Your charity has raised a cool €450 from this one
If Chelsea win in week 1 John goes through, but he won’t be able to pick Chelsea again. Peter picks Villa to
beat Arsenal, but it’s a draw so Peter is out. John picks winners for the next few weeks until he’s the only
man left picking winners and he’s crowned the “Last Man Standing”.
Summary of the rules:
1. Pick ONE team to win in week 1. If they win, you pick again next week. Lose or draw and you’re
2. You can only pick a team to win once in a competition.
3. All selections must be in 15 mins before kick-off of the first match.
4. Rounds of fixtures may take place on weekends or mid-week.
5. The competition continues until only ONE person remains and wins the pot.
6. There can be 2 winners if it’s down to the last 2 and they both fail to pick a winner. The pot is split
equally in this case. If more than 2 are left and nobody picks a winner everyone rolls into the next
Weekend Last Man Standing
The weekend version of last man standing is being launched in April 2015. This game is perfect for April
and May when there are not an adequate number of weeks to run a last man standing competition where a
minimum 8 week period is required. However, it will be offered year-round from August 2015 onwards for
all last man standing sports.
How does it work?
Your supporters decide which sporting event to run it with: Premier League, SPL or the League of Ireland.
Players donate €10 and try and predict the correct score of ALL games in a single round of weekend
fixtures. The organizer running it for your charity has 2 options:
a. Just 1 fixture round: The competition lasts for just ONE fixture round, or
b. Several fixture rounds: You pick the number of fixture rounds (e.g., 4 weeks) to run it for and the
player with the most points at the end wins
The scoring works as follows:
Each correct score prediction: 3 points
Don’t get the correct score, but pick the winner: 1 point
If the game is a draw or the other team wins: 0 points
Example of how a weekly LMS works for your charity
Jimmy is browsing your charity site and sees your gaming page. He creates a weekly last man standing
game with the Premier League, shares it on his Facebook and email and Whatsapps all his friends with the
link. 50 of his mates join from your website, each paying €10. Your charity raises a nice €225 from this
Summary of the Rules
1. The organizer decides the number of fixture rounds to include in the competition. Can be 1 or up to
2. The last man standing scoring is for the duration of a weekend fixture list. If the competition runs for
more than 1 week, players repeat the process each weekend for the duration of the competition.
3. Predict the correct score of ALL 10 GAMES in a fixture round.
4. Each successful winning prediction gets you 1 point. Each correct result gets you 3 points.
5. The winner is decided by the person with the most points at the end of the fixture rounds decided by
the organizer.
