Since Yahoo!7 and OzTips joined forces back in July last year, we’ve been busy working to upgrade much of the technology that OzTips currently uses. The existing OzTips website works on one system whilst our Yahoo!7 sites work on another completely different system. Getting these 2 systems to talk to each other is near impossible. The effort that we could put into making both systems talk to each other is much better invested in creating for you an awesome site that can leverage all the benefits of Yahoo!7 technology directly.

Your old OzTips login won’t work for this site. You need a Yahoo! ID to login from now on.

Please follow these steps to UPGRADE your old OzTips account and get tipping again.

1. Go to http://au.oztips.yahoo.com/ and Click “UPGRADE”
2. Enter your OzTips username & password
3. Login with a new or existing Yahoo!7 account
4. Confirm the upgrade
5. Get tipping!

Just select your Competition from the ‘Competitions’ page and select the middle button for the game you think will be a draw. Don't forget to click 'SAVE TIPS' when finished.

For NRL Tipsters, the Draw is the correct Tip if no Teams have scored during the Golden Point period. A Draw at fulltime means Teams now play for a Golden Point with an extra 5 minutes of match time; then if needed, another 5 minutes. If neither Team scores during this time, the match is declared a Draw.

The Margin is the difference in scores between the two Teams playing in the Discriminator Match.

For example, a Margin of 16 means that you think your Tipped winning Team in the Discriminator Match will win by 16 points.

Your Margin selection must be lower than the actual Match Margin and the Discriminator Match Tip must be correct or else the Margin does not count. The Discriminator Match is the one with the free-text box directly below the first match.

If a tie occurs in a Tipping Comp between Tipsters with the same highest score for a Week, the Discriminator rule can be used to find a single Top Tipster in each Tipping Week.

There are 2 Discriminator options that your Comp Manager can choose from:

- 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.

- No Discriminator: The Comp Manager determines their own Top Tipster if there is a tie.

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