Well this was what I was thinking yeah.

I was looking at prize money the other day for a comp and the fact is that in the first week it's a wedge worth winning but by the second or third week it's just a meaningless amount of credits, hardly worth winning.

I wondered whether starting from zero every Monday morning, no paycheck payouts, everyone starting from scratch equally, then a frenzy of betting throughout the week, the wildcard of the Friday night 10 ticket lottery bonanza and a mad weekend leading up to declaring the winner on a Sunday night.

Too much drama going on for fifty two weeks of the year?
I'm too old for fifty two mad weekends.

The whole point of the monthly paychecks is that people have a starting pot to bet with though. If we start on 0 then essentially we’d be waiting for a lottery win before we can place a bet. A couple of days without a win and you could be miles behind someone that gets a decent win first day and then puts on a couple of winning bets.

I get the point about the weekly prizes for the comps though. It’s not a perfect system but I’m not sure how you get around that. For me I think the monthly thing works about as well as it can. Maybe a weekly one would be better - who knows?

Maybe put up a poll and see what the general consensus is?
Well we can start on whatever amount of credits we want to, doesn't have to be zero.

Just an idea at the moment, would like to see opinions.

Well if you're inviting me, it's going to cost me four fifths of feck all.

I think that it's the least you can do, being as you've made a right balls up of the betting.

Wrong teams, wrong day, etc, etc. I mean let's have a sporting chance for gawd's sake. At the moment it's like playing Russian roulette and having to take two goes at it.

Just over halfway through the month so time for an update…

Highest Roller - 10.7 million - @Dr. Lecter

Biggest Win - 4.3 million - @Popeye

Richest Member - 12.4 million - @Dr. Lecter

A big lead at the top for Caerphilly’s finest but as we know from previous months, things can change very quickly. The chasing pack of @stantys tattoos and @Melvin Udal will be looking to take advantage of any slip ups and there’s still plenty of time left for others to push themselves into contention.
Biggest win now 5 million.

Me.

Not @Popeye

16 million for me now.

Decent win for @veg to put him back into second.

@Melvin Udal in third now.

Have your fun, rub it in, you deserve it. I was waiting in the background for a Welsh equaliser to give you some grief though.
Not a problem. I covered the draw just in case so would have pocketed 9 million for it.

I think this is the way forward. The same people are getting a head start with the monthly paychecks, so starting everyone on a level playing field seems much fairer and an incentive for lower tier members to join in.

The winnings from the competitions and lottery would have far more impact on a weekly basis and the prizes could be extended to provide a further incentive for others to take part.

At the moment, it appears to be a bit cliquey.
