The Football Pools have been creating millionaires since 1923, based on customers correctly predicting football matches which will end in score draws.

Their Classic Pools game is still going strong, and remains the most popular Football Pools bet in the world, with well over 100,000 customers playing every week — all hoping the luck of the draw will win them a life-changing sum of money.

Not only do they offer a £3 million top prize with every competition, but there are also thousands of other top cash prizes up for grabs from the Pool.

It’s easy to play online and, as an added bonus, you can earn yourself some cashback with us if you’re a new subscription player. At the moment, we’re offering members £41 cashback*.

Pools have paid out billions of pounds to millions of lucky players since launching, whether they’re football fans or people who just play using their lucky numbers.

There are guaranteed cash prizes to be won twice a week and every time you play Classic Pools, you’ll be automatically entered into their exclusive Leaderboard absolutely free, giving you more chances to win.

While you can play for £1 per game, there’s also the chance to subscribe for £10 per month and be entered into every Classic Pools competition, meaning your chances of winning are even bigger. Choose the subscription version and you’ll be able to earn cashback too, if you're a new subscriber.

So, why not get involved in the nation’s favourite Pools game today?

How to Play and Prizes

All you need to do is pick the 10 games from their list of 49 which you think will end in a  score draw (1-1, 2-2, 3-3 etc).

Your results will be taken from your best eight selections, with three points awarded for each score draw you predict correctly. You’ll get two points for every no score draw (0-0) and one point for either a home or away win.

In terms of prizes, you’ll collect the £3 million top prize if you have nine score draws (when there are only nine on the coupon).

If you get 24 points (eight score draws), you’re guaranteed a top dividend, while if you amass 23 points (seven score draws and one no score draw), you’re guaranteed a share of the prize pool.

Pick up 20 points, meanwhile, and you’ll get entry into the monthly prize draw.

Competitions with less points available may result in wins from the pool for fewer points.

History of The Football Pools

For almost 100 years, playing The Football Pools has been a tradition for generations of families.

So many will remember their nan or grandad, mum or dad waiting for the Saturday teatime football scores to be read out, clutching their coupon and marking off their score draws, hoping to win big.

While the old paper coupons are still around, these have now been joined by online games.

However, one thing has stayed the same — they’re still making winners and changing lives every week.

Sign up for a Classic Pools subscription through us and you can enjoy having a bit of extra cash in your pocket thanks to the fact we’re offering new subscribers £41 cashback*.

* The cashback rate displayed is what Plus members will receive. The Classic rate may vary.
