Uber Picks

OVERVIEW


If you love sports, you’ll love playing Uber-Picks!  By playing Uber-Picks alongside your favorite sports, you’ll add even more excitement and enjoyment to being a sports fan!

The objective of Uber-Picks is to tally the highest score possible by correctly picking winning teams of sports of your choosing, but that’s only the start.  You’ll maximize your score by strategically assigning “Confidence Points” to each of your picks (the more confident you are of a pick, the more points you should assign).

For each game you pick correctly, you’ll earn the number of points you assigned to that game.  Note: Games that end in a tie or are cancelled will be scored as a correct pick.

Uber-Picks also features five “Sidekicks”–which you can use to boost your score even further and add even more fun to playing.

PRIZES


Win shares of the big weekly Zackpots by posting one of the 50 highest scores (the total of the points you’ve assigned to winning teams, plus Sidekick Bonus Points).  Also earn cool badges, MRP (Member Rewards Points), and compete for the top spots on the Uber-Picks Leaderboards!  See details below.

ENTRY AND PLAY LIMITS


Your first play of Uber-Picks is free each month; participate in additional Uber-Picks contests for just one TCredit.  NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO WIN.  Contestants are limited to one entry per Uber-Picks contest.  However, if there are multiple sport Uber-Picks contests going on simultaneously (e.g. NFL and FIFA), one entry in each is allowed.

WINNING THE ZACKPOT


To win one on more shares of the Uber-Picks Zackpot, you must post one of the 50 highest scores of the contest.  Those posting a top 10 score will receive 3 shares each of the Zackpot.  All others will receive 1 share of the Zackpot.  Note:  In the case of a tie, the earliest entry will be the tiebreaker.

 ASK THE AUDIENCE


Not sure who’s going to win a game?  Use the “Ask The Audience” (ATA) feature for any game to get real-time stats on how other contestants are picking (with the stats automatically updating throughout the week).  Use ATA for FREE for any one game within any Uber-Picks contest.  You can view the ATA stats for up to five total games per Uber-Picks contest (2nd game costs 1 TCredit, 3rd game costs 2 TCredits, 4th game costs 3 TCredits, and the 5th game costs 4 TCredits).

MEMBER REWARDS POINTS


For each TCredit spent playing Uber-Picks, you’ll earn 5 MRP (Member Rewards Points).  If you’re an SFI affiliate, you can also earn 1 AVP (Action VersaPoint) for each non-free entry game played.

SIDEKICKS


Sidekicks, located in the panel just below the Uber-Picks entry screen, are little optional “mini-games” you can play while playing Uber-Picks to earn additional points.  Following are some of the standard Sidekicks (each individual sport may also feature one or more unique-to-that-sport Sidekick):

DOMINATE THE LEADERBOARD


The Uber-Picks Leaderboard automatically tracks and provides rankings for points you score playing all Uber-Picks contests (for both individual sports and all sports combined).

Note: So that all players have the opportunity to reach the top of the leaderboard, points won are halved every 30 days.

Being amongst the top 500 on any Uber-Picks Leaderboard also earns you badges (see following BADGES section for more information).

BADGES


 

deffghda.1. An Uber-Picks contest entry earns you the “In it to win it!” badge–yours until the contest ends.  Tip: By participating regularly in the weekly Uber-Picks contests, you can keep possession of this badge continually.  Note that once you’ve earned an Uber-Picks WINNER badge, you’ll no longer see this badge (it is supplanted by the Winner badge).

2. Posting one of the 50 highest scores for any Uber-Picks contest earns you the WINNER badge (or an upgraded “X-Times Winner” version of the badge) for that individual sports category. Make the top 50 three times to add bronze trim to your badge. Make the top 50 five times to add silver trim to your badge.  Make the top 50 ten times to add gold trim to your badge.

3. There are also Uber-Picks Leaderboard badges for each sports category and for all sports combined. The minimum leaderboard rank to receive a Uber-Picks Leaderboard badge is 500. Add bronze trim by achieving a top 200 rank. Add silver trim by achieving a top 50 rank. Add gold trim by achieving a top 10 rank.  You can view the Uber-Picks Leaderboard HERE.

LEAGUE PLAY


COMING SOON: Start your own personal league (for FREE) and play Uber-Picks with your sports friends, co-workers, etc.  TripleClicks will provide a special league website FREE for league participants which will automatically track scoring, win/loss records with leaderboards, recognition of best and worst performances and more for all your league members.

    Thanks for walking us through what Uber Picks is and how it works. Unfortunately, I can’t really participate because it’s not available for the sport I’m interested in (golf). However, I do have several friends who would probably like to know about this. I’ll definitely be telling them about Uber Picks. Thanks again.

  5. Interesting post on Uber Picks, I can’t say I’ve heard of it before but it’s got a lot going on for sports fans who like to keep things interesting.

    I like that you can win shares of the big weekly Zackpots and the way that it’s set up gives it a real competitive edge.

    The wide array of sports available is really cool too, I was wondering if would be something I could actually do, but then I saw in your list that FIFA – Europe was on there… Great!

    The League play function that is coming soon will be a great addition I think, personal leagues are cool because it’s a laugh to do with your mates!

    Would you say it’s quite an addictive game? It seems to me like something that would suck you in.
