Before we tell you anything else, we’d like you to know that participation in this game is absolutely FREE and anyone around the world can enter. At the same time, we must warn you that only players in countries where DStv is available qualify to win the monthly and end-of-season prizes. The rest will have to play for pride and bragging rights...
The first step to playing is to register with SuperSport.com.
If you are already a registered user on SuperSport.com or DStv.com, all you have to do is click on the link above or on the login button below.
If you have been invited to join a pool and you have the pool code to hand, log in or register first, then click on My Pools. From there you can paste or type the code into the text field, the click the 'Join' button.
Once you have successfully logged in, selected your favourite team (if you wish) and joined the game, you will land on your Dashboard page. This is your one-stop shop for a complete overview, from the predictions required, to your performance from the previous week, and your standings in the various pools.
To predict the scores for upcoming matches, click on the “Make Predictions“ tab. Click on ‘Predict’ next to any of the games and you will be taken to the Prediction page. Once you have completed your scores, click on “ Submit Predictions ” at the bottom of the page.
To make changes to your predictions, simply click on the 'Change' button next to the score you have inputted and it will take you back to the Predictions page
Please note that on the top right hand side of the page, in your profile block, there are quick links that you can use, whatever page you are on, to jump immediately to areas such as “Make Predictions”.
While the game does not ask you to predict exact scores, rather just the winners, you are asked what you think the margin of victory will be, eg Stormers to beat the Force by 10 points.
Bonus points are then awarded if you are within a certain number of points of the margin of victory.
The exact points available are:
In the knock stages (from play-offs onward) the points available will be doubled but the Full House option will fall away. The knock-out stages will be one round, so all games from play-off to the final.
There are no points or bonus points available if you selected the losing side.
You will automatically be entered into the global league.
One of the best features of this game is the importance of the monthly leagues, which run from the first day of each month to the last, with great prizes up for grabs. It means that you can join anytime during the season, and while you may not stand a chance of winning the overall league, there is still plenty of incentive each month. February will count as a full month.
You can also set up one or many private Leagues where you challenge your friends, family or work colleagues to play against you.
Here’s how it works:
The option to set up or join a private league can be accessed from the quick links, which are situated under your profile block. Just click on “My pools” and click the “Create” button to create your own private league or click on the “Join“ button to join an existing league. To join an existing league, you will need to have been invited and provided with a league code.
You can choose to send an automatic email to your friends by entering their email addresses online, or alternatively you can forward your private league code to them.
Also within each League area is a Facebook comment box, which allows you to make comments and get the banter going among your friends.

A countback system will be used to break ties and ensure that only one person qualifies for each prize.
The countback system will work as follows:• If points are tied after the final, we will then look at your win-accuracy percentage. After that, we will remove the points earned in the earlier rounds (Round of 16, then quarterfinals…) until we find a winner.
