Frequently Asked Questions
What is Copabet?
Copabet is a game where you compete against friends by predicting every game of a sports event. Amplify the adrenaline – join now!
How does it work?
First, create a Scorecard. Second, create or join a group. Then, invite all your friends!
Is this a betting site?
No. Copabet is a game where you compete with friends. It is a social layer of fun and prestige to a sports event.
What is a Scorecard?
A Scorecard is what you compete with. It is your prediction of every game – all games in the Group Stage and a complete scenario of the Playoff stage. And you have to make all of your predictions before the event begins.
Why should I join?
It amplifies the adrenaline! It just makes every game so much more exciting! And beating your friends in the meantime is like icing on the proverbial cake.
What do I compete with?
Your Scorecard. Create your Scorecard and then you compete with friends in different groups. Copabet is a game where you can see who makes the best prediction of the World Cup.
How do I create a Scorecard?
First you need to register. Via e-mail or Facebook. Then you can start creating your Scorecard. Simply click on the flag or name of the team that you think will win each match. If you predict a draw; click X.
Do I predict specific game results?
No. In Copabet, you predict the outcome of each game. If it is a home win, a draw, or an away win. You do not predict specific scores.
Can I change my Scorecard?
Yes, you can change your Scorecard as many times as you want up until two hours before the opening game begins. Remember to save your Scorecard!
Can other people see my Scorecard?
Before the event begins, no one can see your Scorecard except you. As soon as the opening games starts – everyone can see your Scorecard!
How many Scorecards can I create?
One. That is the beauty and challenge of Copabet. You can only believe in one single outcome, so think it through. Make your prediction, then stick with it.
After the event has started, can I change my Scorecard in any way?
No. The whole idea of Copabet is that you make your prediction and then stick with it from the opening game all the way t groupo the final.
What do I predict in the Group Stage and Play-Off Stage?
First, you predict the outcome of every single Group Stage game. Who will win the game or if you predict a draw (X). Then, in the Play-Off Stage, you predict how the teams make their way, all the way to the final World Champion. You do not predict specific match results.
Does my predictions in the Group Stage affect the Play-off Stage?
No. Copabet allows you the freedom to predict the Group Stage and the Play-Off Stage just as you like. As we are not predicting specific match results, it is not possible to have a logical link between the Group Stage and the Play-Off Stage. So, you can essentially have France to loose each game in the Group Stage, but still pick them as Group Winners for the Play-Off Stage. That’s just the way it is.
Can I accidentally put the same team all over the place in the Playoff Stage?
No. Our intelligent drop down menus disable this. The Play-Off Stage will need to be logical.

Points on Scorecard
How do I get points
For every correct game prediction you get points. The points you get are based on two factors: Game Value and Friendly Odds™. The Game Value increases for each stage as the European Cup progresses. Getting the Champions right will get you loads of points! In each group, the amount of points you get is determined by what everyone else have predicted. Correct predictions simply share the points available for each game. We call it Friendly Odds™ and it will award upsets and underdogs.
