What can I win?
Jackpot Competition: The Jackpot Competition prize is £250,000 in Round One and will roll-over to the following round if it is not won. If the Jackpot is not won Paddy Power will increase the Jackpot by £25,000 per round, up to a maximum total of £500,000. If the Jackpot is won, the following round’s Jackpot total will be £250,000 unless otherwise specified. This prize will be awarded to the participant who correctly predicts the player to score the first goal (First Goalscorer) in ALL Hotshot Jackpot fixtures in a relevant round (i.e. a different player in each of the selected fixtures). If two or more participants correctly predict the first goalscorer in ALL the selected Hotshot Jackpot fixtures, the round prize will be split equally amongst those players. Round Competition: If the overall Jackpot is not won there will be a consolation prize of £2,500 for each Hotshot Jackpot Promotion round. This prize will be awarded to the participant who scores the highest number of first goalscorer winners in a Hotshot Jackpot round. At least five Hotshot Jackpot fixtures must be completed during the relevant round in order for the £2,500 round prize to be awarded. If two or more participants have the same number of first goalscorers, the winner will be the participant with the closest prediction for the Hotshot Tiebreaker Question. If two or more participants provide equally accurate closest predictions for the Hotshot Tiebreaker Question, the round prize will be split equally amongst those participants. The top 10 participants in each round will also be awarded a free bet of €/£25. The top 10 participants are determined in order of how many winning selections they have in that round, and following that by the closest prediction for the Hotshot Tiebreaker Question. Overall Leaderboard competition: At the end of the season (Sunday 13th May 2018) the overall leader (the participant with the highest number of selected first goalscorers) will be awarded a prize of £2,500. If there are multiple winners with the same number of first goalscorer winning selections then the overall winner will be the participant with the closest prediction for the Hotshot Tiebreaker Question in the last round of the game. If two or more participants provide equally accurate closest predictions for the Hotshot Tiebreaker Question, the overall leaderboard prize will be split equally amongst those participants.
What is the ‘Hotshot’ Tie breaker question?
If two or more participants correctly predict the same number of anytime goalscorers in the selected Hotshot Jackpot fixtures for the Round Competition or Overall Leaderboard Competition, then the winner will be the participant with the closest prediction for the Hotshot Tiebreaker Question to the actual time of the first goal in that game. The relevant game will be pre-determined by Paddy Power. If two or more players provide equally accurate closest predictions for the Hotshot Tiebreaker Question, the round prize will be split equally amongst those participants. In determining the closest prediction for the Hotshot Tiebreaker Question, times before and after the actual time of the first goal will be given equal weighting.
When do I have to submit my predictions?
Your predictions must be submitted before kick-off time of the first game of the round as advertised on the Hotshot Jackpot website/App
Can I change my selections?
An entry can be changed following submission up until kick-off time of the first game in that round. When the competition has closed, entrants cannot change their predictions.
What happens if my selection doesn’t play a part in the match?
If your selection does not play any part in the game, you are still in with a chance of winning the round prize of £2,500, but not the weekly jackpot. Be sure to check your selection is in the match day squad before the 3pm kick off to be in with a chance of winning the weekly jackpot.
What happens if a player I select gets transferred to another team?
If you pick a player that is then transferred to another team your selection will be voided. You are still in with a chance of winning the round prize of £2,500, but not the weekly jackpot. Make sure you keep an eye out for any players that get transferred and change your selection to another player before the round closes.
What happens when matches are postponed?
If any Hotshot Jackpot fixture is postponed, abandoned or not completed (less than 90 minutes played) the fixture will be considered void. If seven or less Hotshot Jackpot fixtures are completed during any Hotshot Jackpot round, the Jackpot Competition prize will be void for that round. At least seven Hotshot Jackpot matches must be completed in order for any Round Competition prize to be awarded.
What do I do if a player I want to pick isn’t available to select?

Can I select no goalscorer if I think it will be 0-0?
