Free TAB Footy Tipping CompetitionMarch 19, 2018
Update March 2018: The TAB is no longer running their free AFL & NRL footy tipping competitions in 2018, not even through the new TAB Rewards program. Fear not, below we profile two AFL tipping competitions that are free, and provide generous cash giveaways for the 2018 AFL and NRL seasons.
Free footy tipping competitions for 2018
Put aside any disappointment you may have that the TAB footy tipping competition isn’t operational in 2018, we take a look at two contests equally as good.
1. Sportsbet’s Million Dollar Tipping
Sportsbet run a terrific competition for AFL and NRL fans. Overall winners can collect upwards of $100,000 in cash, but the best part about this competition, is that weekly prize winners score $10,000 in cash. Entry is free and you can register here.
2. CrownBet’s AFL Round 1 tipping competition
CrownBet has again teamed up with the AFL to deliver their free tipping contest for season 2018. The key to this one is that you only need to submit tips for Round 1. If you correctly tip all 9 winners you will either take home all of the $250,000 prize pool or share it with other correct entrants. The only stipulation is that you need to be a CrownBet member to enter. There is no deposit or wagering requirement, but you may be entitled to a bonus bet with CrownBet depending on which state you are from. Again, entry for this tipping competition is free.
Unfortunately, the 2018 season has seen another free footy tipping contest fall by the wayside, as this Palmerbet has decided not to run their Last Man Standing competition.
Details on the former TAB tipping competition
For those with a sense of nostalgia, we’ve included below some details on the former TAB footy tipping competition.
Competition Prize Money
This is a footy tipping competition with a difference. If you are the overall winner of the TAB footy tipping competition you have the choice of walking away with $20,000 OR placing a ‘free’ bet on the finals matches. If you correctly select the winner of all 9 finals you’ll win $1 million!
If you choose to play the finals and your first finals bet loses, you’ll still walk away with $10,000. However if your first $30,000 bet on the first AFL / NRL final wins, you will collect $20,000 plus the proceeds from the finals win. At any point during the finals matches you can choose to walk away with your winnings, or you can keep playing and try to win the $1,000,000.
Free Bet Giveaways every Week
If you correctly select all 9 AFL winners every week, or all 8 NRL winners, you’ll receive a free $10 bet from the TAB.
How to Enter
Entry to TAB’s footy tipping is free for all TAB customers. If you’re not a TAB customer you can register and play for free without having to deposit any money. You can register by visiting at TAB.
Scoring Factors in the Fixed Odds Price
The scoring for the TAB footy tipping competition is also different. Points are allocated according to the fixed odds of the selected team at the time of tipping. For example; if you select North Melbourne to defeat Hawthorn at odds of $2.70, then you’ll receive 2.7 points.
Unlike other tipping competitions, it may pay to tip the occasional outsider in order to score more points. If you correctly select all winners from the round’s matches, you’ll score a bonus 5 points.
