If you correctly predict the outcome of all eight matches, you and any other players who predict all eight correctly, will share the prize pool of $8,000. Occasionally, the prize pool is significantly greater.
Even if you don't get all eight predictions correct, you will still receive a $1 free bet for each result you get right.
