Entry instructions

To enter, you must, during the Competition Period: (a) download the FANZO app and register your details by providing all requested information including selecting your favourite NRL team (b) find the 2024 Victoria Bitter Qld only NRL Footy Tipping Competition and join a Venue league, select your local participating Qld Venues (you may only choose a maximum of two Venues for the entire Competition Period) then click the 'join league' button for that Venue (c) before each round of the 2024 Telstra NRL season (excluding finals series), submit your tips for each game in the round via the FANZO app to receive a Reward (you must be in attendance at the Venue), and for the chance to win a Venue prize and for the chance to win the major prize. Where a submission is not made for a game, you will by default receive the away team as your tip.

You must join a Venue league to be eligible for the major prize. The Promoter is not responsible if your mobile device/desktop is not sufficiently capable for the purpose of submitting an entry. For the avoidance of doubt, you can only join the tipping league for a maximum of two Venues. To be eligible for a Reward you must have your location services switched on in the FANZO app.

Rewards

Rewards are as follows: Tip Reward Schooner Submit your NRL tips for all games in a round while present and in attendance at your selected local Qld Venue (you must have your location services switched on in the FANZO app to determine that you are physically present in the Venue) to receive a 425ml schooner of Victoria Bitter (Tip Reward Schooner). Once you have completed your tip submission for the entire round, your Tip Reward Schooner voucher will be loaded into your FANZO wallet (available in the FANZO app). To redeem your Tip Reward Schooner, present your Tip Reward Schooner voucher to staff at your selected local Venue. All vouchers will expire at 6pm on the following Friday after the voucher is awarded. If you do not use your Tip Reward Schooner voucher prior to this time, you forfeit your Tip Reward Schooner reward. Rewards will not be redeemable between 10pm and 9am. Once you have submitted your tips for a round, you will get an on-screen notification informing you if you have earned a Reward and if so, details on how to claim your Reward.

Venue prizes

During the Competition Period, a Venue may choose to have additional Venue prizes available to the entrants who have selected to participate in that Venue's advertised NRL Tipping League. The prizes may be any of the following as advertised in Venue: ● If you are the Venue’s top tipper for the week, you may receive a meal voucher (to the value specified by the Venue) to use at that Venue; ● If you submit the highest number of correct tips of the 2024 NRL season in the Venue's league you may win a cash prize (to the value specified by the Venue); and Venue league prizes not available in all Venues. It is up to the Venue if they choose to give away Venue league prizes. If a Venue has Venue league prizes, they are subject to availability, and the type of prize/s will vary between Venues.

How many major prizes will there be and how will they be determined?

There will be 1 major prize winner determined in this competition.

To win the major prize, you must by the end of the Competition Period have the overall highest number of correct tips (correctly predicted winning teams & away teams when no submission was made) throughout the 2024 Telstra NRL season (excluding finals series) from all entrants in the 2024 Victoria Bitter NRL Queensland only Footy Tipping Competition.

If there are 2 or more tippers with the highest number of tips (correctly predicted winning teams & away teams when no submission was made) at the end of the 2024 NRL season in the 2024 Victoria Bitter NRL Queensland only Footy Tipping Competition, then the overall winner will be determined by the total points margin of difference. If, in the event of a tie (where 2 tippers have the same total points margin of difference) a winner will be determined by the following: i. the tipper with the lowest total margin of difference in the last round will win; ii. if still tied, the lowest margin of the first game in the last round.

If after both of these options are exhausted and a clear winner still cannot be found, the Promoter will then proceed to find the tipper with the lowest margin, sequentially through the rest of the games in the last round until a clear winner is determined. If, after this a clear winner is still not found, the major prize will go to the tipper who was first to sign up to the FANZO app in 2024 (or if both tippers signed up prior to 2024 then it will be the first to submit a tip for the 2024 Victoria Bitter Queensland only NRL Footy Tipping Competition).

Major prize

There is 1 major prize available.

The major prize is a 2024 Telstra NRL Grand Final Experience for the winner and 1 adult companion valued at up to $7,535 depending on the winner's Queensland departure airport. If you win the major prize, your prize will be a trip for you and 1 adult companion to Sydney for the 2024 Telstra NRL Grand Final (exact dates to be determined by the Promoter pending the official 2024 NRL finals fixture) which includes the following:
