Ball Bingo - finals tipping competition week three

Greetings football fans

The Thinker is opening up his mystery box and giving out a few prizes throughout the 2020 finals series.

Welcome to Ball Bingo

There are nine prizes in total, one for each of the nine games during the 2020 finals series. Registered tipsters and registered visiters can enter the comp in all nine finals games (one entry per game). To enter, simply sign in to the website and enter your score prediction in the comments section on the page for each week of the finals (eg. Roosters 20 - Rabbitohs 10). Each week will have its own page in the lounge section of this site. We can also discuss each of the games before, during and after each final on these pages.

The prize winner in each game is the person whose predicted score is closest to the final outcome. Should there be a tie, those entrants names will be placed in my thinking cap and a winner drawn by Ms Thinker. You can win more than once, but I'm hoping the prizes get shared around a little bit. If someone wins all nine, they're a deadset freak and this competition will be renamed in their honour for next season. The final decision on winners is determined by The Thinker.

The games (week three finals)

Storm vs Raiders (Suncorp Stadium)

Panthers vs Rabbitohs (ANZ Stadium)

The prizes

I have a bunch of NRL club and Origin footballs to give away. Balls will be randomly placed on my bingo card (numbered 1 to 20). Two of those numbers will have two balls on them, and the rest will have one. The winning entrant for each game will be asked to pick a number, and the ball/balls on that number will be yours. You could end up with a QLD Origin football which would be fantastic, or a Sharks football which would be something you could feed to your rottweiler. One of those numbers will have a ball and a $50 NRL shop gift voucher up for grabs. Keep that one away from your dog.

Competition is free to enter and open to registered tipsters and anyone else who has created an account on this site. If you win I will need to mail you the prize, so if you don't want to share your email address and postal details with me (privately), perhaps let someone else win.

The winners

If your name appears below without a prize, pick a number between one and 20 (that hasn't already been picked) and add it in the comments on this page.

  • Nik - Dragons football (4)
  • Newbie from Perth - Storm football and Maroons Origin football (16)
  • Mike T - Broncos football (3)

Hi Thinker. I'm over the moon!!
My number is 13 thanks.
Thanks for running this extra competition. It's a lot of fun.
Shame I forgot to put my entry in for the first week of the finals.
Perhaps too many pain killers??
Cheers, manyana.

The Thinker's picture

You're welcome Manyana

You have won a Panthers football (and it looks pretty good I reckon). Could that be an omen?

I will be in touch to arrange postal details etc.

All the best

The Thinker

Hi Thinker, in my excitement, I forgot to congratulate Guru Craig for winning again.
Looking forward to receiving my Panthers football.
You never know, it could be an omen. We'll find out this weekend.
Cheers, manyana.
