What are Dividends?

Daily payouts that can win on your Football Index bets. Goalscorers, playmakers, media magnets, assist kings, clean sheet keepers - they’re all in line for daily wins. 

There are four types of Dividends:

Match DayMediaIn Play

Match Day
Dividends

We evaluate player performance through our Opta-powered Performance scoring algorithm and allocate them points. The players with the most points for their respective position come top of our Match Day Rankings, and win Dividends for that day.

Gold, Silver and Bronze Match Days

Payouts depend on the prestige and number of football matches taking place on a Match Day. Match Days are organised into Gold, Silver and Bronze Days. Have a look at the Dividend Table below:

To account for the potential cancellations and postponements of matches we have lowered the threshold on the number of matches required for all Match Days until the end of the season.

Eligible Competitions

You can win Match Day Dividends on the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A, Ligue 1, Champions League, Europa League, World Cup, UEFA European Championship and UEFA European Championship Qualifiers.

Points scoring

On each day there is a football match in any of the Eligible Competitions, we rank all the participating footballers according to our Match Day Scoring Table.

Positional tiering

Footballer positions are classified using Opta season data and will not update in game if a player moves position or plays out of position during a game. 

Deadlines

Traders have to purchase Shares before 16:00 (London time) to be eligible to win Match Day Dividends on that day.

We pay out Dividends to the players at the top of the Match Day Rankings between 09:00am and 11:00am the following morning.

1.25 Multiplier

Playing in Champions League and Europa League matches will multiply player scores by 1.25 for games in those tournaments.

Tiebreak

In the event that two footballers score equal points totals on a Match Day, the youngest player will win the Dividends.

Who's in your
Team of the Month?

At the end of each month, Dividends will be paid out on the top three forwards, top four midfielders and top three defenders. Plus, the top Goalkeeper. More on that later.

Top players are based on an aggregated score from all eligible matches.

Example Team of the Month

Footballers are ranked according to the total of their top 3 Match days scores in a given calendar month. For example, if Lionel Messi played four games in a month, scoring 250, 250, 250 and 150, he would score 750 points. If he had only played two games with scores of 250 and 150, his score would be 400 points. In the event of any tie, the younger player will be ranked higher.

Eligible Competitions

Team of the Month Dividends will only be payable if there are a minimum of 5 Match Days completed in that calendar month.

In the case of a major international tournament, we may offer a similar “Team of the Tournament” dividend on a promotional basis applied to the whole tournament, rather than per calendar month. We reserve the right to amend this dividend in or around the 2022 World Cup, and this may impact adjacent months. We will announce any changes within 30 days of relevant club fixtures being announced for the 2022-23 season.

Media
Dividends

We take news headlines from 20 trusted media sources and scan them for player names. Footballers with mentions get points - and the players with the highest points get into the Media Rankings. Top three win Dividends, on Non-Match Days. Top one wins on Match Days.*
*Media Rankings are based on Media Score each day at 00:00:00.

Our proprietary daily monitor of all UK online football news drives a daily score published in list form.

The news feeds we monitor are:
Talksport, UEFA, The FA, ESPN, FIFA, Football League, Daily Mail, Daily Star, The Times, Telegraph, Independent, Express, Guardian, Metro, Daily Mirror, BBC, Football365, Goal.com, Huffington Post and Sky Sports.

On eligible match days, there’s one Media Dividend winner.

3rd

Deadlines

Media Dividends are paid out on Shares bought before a daily deadline of 16:00 (London time). Winnings are paid out between 09:00am (London time) and 11:00am (London time) on the day after the Media Dividends were won. To win, you’ll need to hold the footballer until you’ve been credited with your Media Dividends.

Media Winner

The footballer with the highest score each day by 23:59:59pm (London time) wins Media Dividends on that day. 

Tiebreak

If there’s a points tie, the footballer with the latest unique story will be ranked higher. We reserve the right to remove stories attributed to a footballer that are not related to footballing events or that refer to another similarly named but incorrect person.

In-Play
Dividends

Everybody loves an instant payout and that’s what you get with In-Play Dividends.  If a footballer you own scores or assists, or a goalkeeper keeps a clean sheet - you get paid. It’s that simple. 

30 Day Eligibility

Favourable Fixtures

Your shares are eligible for In-Play Dividends for the first 30 days you own them. So, it’s worth taking into account the difficulty of your pick’s up-coming games. Considering shares in Messi and Barca are playing the bottom three in the next two weeks? Then it might be time to Buy.

Eligible Competitions

You can win In-Play Dividends on the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A, Ligue 1, Champions League, Europa League, World Cup, UEFA European Championship and UEFA European Championship Qualifiers.

by a Forward or a Midfielder

per Goal

by a Defender or a Goalkeeper
