A Complete Guide to Sky Sports Super Six

Lots of online bookmakers offer free-to-play prediction games, so how does the Sky Sports Super Six option – which is associated with Sky Bet – compare to its rivals in a crowded market?

With a £250,000 jackpot up for grabs, Super 6 has one of the top prizes out there, but it is very hard to win and the main money often rolls over as a result of winnings being fairly rare.

Sky Sports Super Six does not just run on a weekend as it is also often available to play when there is a full midweek calendar of fixtures, either in the Premier League or Championship.

But what else do people need to know about playing Sky Sports Super Six? Let’s take a look.

Introduction to Sky Sports Super Six

Sky Sports Super Six has been around for a few years, but it continues to grow in popularity.

Soccer Saturday host Jeff Stelling often provides updates on the progress of Sky Sports Super Six during the weekly show, which helps to build anticipation and excitement around the offer.

The key to the success of Sky Sports Super Six is that it is completely free to play. Users do not have to stake any money on their predictions to have a shot at winning the top prize.

With £250,000 up for grabs for correctly predicting six scores of predetermined matches, Sky Sports Super Six is one of the easiest free-to-play prediction games out there right now.

Players are prompted to place money on their predictions through their Sky Bet account after entering Sky Sports Super Six, but they can skip this step if they do not want to place a bet.

Entries can be made on the Sky Sports Super Six desktop site, while there are also mobile betting apps that are available to download for iOS and Android to make it even easier to take part as well.

Users can also take on their friends in private leagues, with scoring updated throughout the season, which adds even more interest to playing Sky Sports Super Six on a weekly basis.

Another £5,000 is up for grabs in the Super 6 Extra addition. Users just have to answer a set of six questions about a match to have a shot at claiming that top prize, which is offered weekly.

The £250,000 top prize is hard to win, but Sky Sports Super Six rolls it over if nobody is able to correctly nail down the six correct scores that are required to scoop the jackpot one week.

Sky Sports Super Six can have a top prize of as much as £1 million if it rolls over for three weeks, so it is well worth people learning how to play the free Sky Sports Super Six game.

How to Play Sky Sports Super Six

The good news is that Sky Sports Super Six is extremely easy for newcomers to learn to play.

Entries must be made before 3 pm on a Saturday for a weekend round as this is when the first matches will kick-off. It might be better to wait until close to kick-off to make predictions as these means factors such as team news and even weather conditions can be taken into account.

To play Sky Sports Super Six, users need to create an account – or access the free-to-play prediction game through their Sky Bet account – either on the mobile app or desktop site.

The six games that makeup Sky Sports Super Six are chosen with plenty of notice, so players can do as much or as little research as they want before they decide to make their picks.

Expert predictions are also featured and there are some statistics available to look at when playing Sky Sports Super Six as well, but lots of people simply opt to go with their gut instead.

To win the top prize – which starts at £250,000 but can roll over up to a possible £1 million – players will have to get the correct score right for each of the six matches that are chosen.

But users will also take home £5,000 if they amass the most points in Sky Sports Super Six. In the game, players score five points for a correct score and two points if they get the right result, but the wrong score. So if a user guesses that Chelsea v Arsenal will end 1-1 and it finishes 2-2 instead, they get two points, but if the result is 1-1 then they earn the full five points. Therefore, there is a potential 30 points up for grabs each week in the free Sky Sports Super Six game.

A tie-breaker system is also in place to split up users who score the same number of points when they play Sky Sports Super Six. After selecting the correct score for the six games included in the Sky Sports Super Six game, users also have to enter their guess for the minute of the first goal in any of the six games that are included in a Golden Goal addition as well.

The last part of learning how to play the Sky Sports Super Six game is deciding whether or not to challenge Jeff – Stelling, the host of Soccer Saturday – which is also free to enter. All of the players who score more points than Stelling in Sky Sports Super Six are entered into a prize draw where there is a £500 cash prize, so it is well worth taking time to select this option too.

Sky Sports Super Six has leaderboards available to view for each week, as well as monthly and for the full season as a whole. The monthly leaderboard prize that is available to win is two VIP Premier League tickets to a game of the winner’s choice, as long as they give plenty of notice.

Players who fancy their chances of guessing correct scores accurately should certainly take time to learn how to play Sky Sports Super Six. With the game being fully free to play, there is nothing to lose and the chance to win up to £1 million makes it one of the top prizes out there.
