We’re giving away 500 quid of Free Bets just because we really like you

by Rob Dore | December 31, 2015

THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED

Try as we might we were unable to give away all the free bets, even though we let the competition run on for an extra week. For shame. We did get four more correct answers with those customers each receiving a £/€50 free bet which has been credited to their accounts.

For those of you still waiting to find out the correct answers the unlucky masked celebrities are: Nico Rosberg, Stuart Lancaster, Ronda Rousey, Andy Lee and Suzann Pettersen.

I’m off to spend the unclaimed prize money on fortified wine and scratch cards. Let’s do this again next year.

=============================

Despite not closing the competition out on midnight last Thursday as planned we’re still shy of the desired five winners. That’s right, only two people managed to guess the correct identity of our five masked celebrities.

That’s free £/€100 bets for Joe Dixon and Cahal Bell. Well done fellas.

We’re not handing out the answer just yet because we still have £/€300 in free bets to give away. Of course it wouldn’t be fair on Joe and Cahal if we were to hand out £/€100 free bets so we’re going to be giving out six £/€50 free bets instead. Making twice as many people half as happy but happy nonetheless.

To win a £/€50 free bet identify the five celebrities hidden behind the masquerade masks.

Send your answer in to competitions@paddypower.com with the subject line ‘It’s about bloody time you thanked me’. Please include your username. We just need to know you have an account and that’s the easiest way to do it.

Updated conditions:

  • Answers to competitions@paddypower.com
  • Five sports people from five different sports
  • You’re allowed more than one guess, but your most recent guess counts
  • Closing date is midnight on Tuesday January 12

If we happen to have more than six correct answers, the six winners will be drawn at random.

Here’s some conditiony things, just because it’s a requirement, not because it’s a fiendish trick:
– Customers must be over the age of 18, have a valid paddypower.com account and remember the time when Home Alone was found in the ‘new releases’ section on your local VHS rental shop.
– Maximum size of each free bet will be €/£50.
– Paddy Power decision is final and moaning will be gleefully ridiculed in public.

=========================================

THIS SECTION OF THE COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED

Christmas is done with, the underwhelming presents have been exchanged for gift vouchers and the family memories are being blocked out so we can face doing it all again next year. Which is technically tomorrow.

As always we like to mark the festive period by saying thank you to our readers with a shameless cry for attention…I mean with a generous, no-strings attached free bet giveaway. Okay there may be some small strings like you needing to have a Paddy Power account to take part but basically this is our small way of saying thank you and that we hope 2016 proves even more successful than 2015 in whatever way will make you smile more.

After surviving the deluge of booze-soaked PP Christmas parties we found this photo on the company mobile and we need to know who is in it. Can you help us? We’ll make it worth your while. There’s €/£500 in free bets to be won. We’ll split that up into five prizes of €/£100 just so we can spread the Christmas love a bit more.

There is a clue – the five people had 2015 that they probably want to forget. Not disastrous in the sense of career-ending calamity, but for professional or personal reasons, they’ll all be glad to see the back of 2015 and hope for a better 2016.

Each person represents a different sport, so if your guess features two people from one sport, you’re doing it wrong. It’s meant to test a wide-ranging knowledge of sport so if you really got into studying Competitive Cheese-rolling this year, then you may be a bit too specialised. There’s a maximum of one Competitive Cheeseroller in the line-up, possibly none.

Send your answer in to competitions@paddypower.com with the subject line ‘It’s about bloody time you thanked me’. Please include your username. We just need to know you have an account and that’s the easiest way to do it.

You’re allowed to have more than one guess, but please note that your most recent guess will count as your answer. If for example you guess ‘Tammy Wynette’ for one of the guesses and then later switch it to ‘Dolly Parton’ and the correct answer is actually Tammy Wynette, then your Dolly Parton answer will count. Soz. Please also note that neither Tammy Wynette or Dolly Parton are an answer to this competition. Closing date for this competition will be Thursday January 7 2016 at 23.59. I’ll announce the winners the next day most likely.

So in short:

  • Answers to competitions@paddypower.com
  • Fivesportspeople from five different sports
  • You’re allowed more than one guess, but your most recent guess counts
  • Closing date is midnight on Thursday January 7

If we happen to have more than five correct answers, the five winners will be drawn at random.

Here’s some conditiony things, just because it’s a requirement, not because it’s a fiendish trick:
