Yes, for some Sports you can select the Tip cut-off time for your Tipping Comp. The options are:

A) 5-minutes before the first match of the Week; or

B) 5-minutes before EACH match

Option B will enable your Tipsters to make selections right up until the start of each match and is a good option if a lot of your Tipsters have access to OzTips Mobile (www.oztips.mobi) from their handsets.

If you have already set-up your Comp, don't worry, you can re-configure your Comp at anytime - click 'Comp Rules' then 'Edit Comp' & be sure to let your Tipsters know you have changed the Rules!

There are two types of Tipping Comps that you can select when setting up your Comp, however not all Tipping types are available for each Sport:

Straight Tipping: This is straight pick the winner Tipping.

Price Tipping: Tipping with points awarded based upon the match's final Tip price. eg. If the final match Tip prices were Knights ($1.35) v Broncos ($2.20) and the Knights won, you would be awarded 1.35 points for that correct Tip.

Tipsters receive the "All Correct Bonus" Points if they correctly Tip all matches in a Week. The Bonus only applies to Tips selected and saved by a Tipster (not to Non-Submitters default points) and is awarded in any regular season Tipping Week, regardless of the number of matches played in that Week.

Remember: Any change you make to your Rules or Points set-up will Rescore the whole Comp (including past, current and future Weeks) based on the new Rule so we suggest you do not change or remove the All Correct Bonus points once set unless you really wish to do so.

If a tie occurs in your Tipping Comp between Tipsters with the same highest score for a Week, you can select to set-up a "discriminator" to determine a single Top Tipster:

- No Discriminator: You determine your own Top Tipster if there is a tie.

- Closest Margin: Tipsters must guess the difference in scores between the two Teams playing in the Discriminator Match; and the highest scoring Tipster who gets the Margin match Tip correct and the lowest, closest Margin, is the Top Tipster.

If any Tipsters are still tied after the Discriminator is used, the earliest Tip time will be used to select a single Top Tipster for your Comp.

The Top Tipster will then be named first in the Latest Results, followed alphabetically by the remaining Tipsters on equal points. All other Tipsters are ranked by scores, alphabetically.

A few months after a Sport's season is over, we automatically remove those Comps from the site in preparation for the set-up of the next season. Unfortunately, once the Comps are removed you cannot retrieve any Tips, Results or Tipster lists so please make sure you print any information you may require later on.

Don't worry though, we notify Tipsters via the "Stop Press" news as to when these Comp removals will occur so you'll have plenty of time to Login and print your Comp's info before then!
