Upcoming IPL Contest | Predict and Win with Mayavi
Happy colorful Holi to everyone
Giving back to community

Basically I come up with giveaway idea with some contest, with total prize amount of 10% of my dimes (which I have redeemed + earned). As discussed with @bumblefoot earlier, he mentioned that cant transfer dimes from one account to another account and suggested to give Amazon GVs.


I had a plan to run a contest with prizes of some small GVs, but don’t want to run on a single day which will not give enough chance to everyone. So, I decided to run a contest (mostly luck based and some fun) to decide/pick winners. Since I don’t have much knowledge on Hollywood/Bollywood movies, I planned to consider cricket matches (which most of the Indians are interested and also aware of that). So I picked IPL (which starts from April 9th). I would like to ask questions not based on facts every time, rather it would be funny and not easy to predict (so that it will not favor anyone who have good knowledge on cricket)


Ex: Who will take 7th wkt in this match? Who will be the striker/non-striker on 11.4 overs?
(I can ask lot more questions in this way and which will be fun to answer , not easy to predict also)


For this contest, Total prize amount will be around Rs.500-1000 (based on Dimes earned as I mentioned earlier). I can’t run this contest daily for 60 matches, so make it easier for me – I planned to choose 1 team and to cover all their 14 league matches with 2 prizes per match of total Rs.50/match (30 + 20), which makes 50*14 = Rs.700
So, I am picking my Favorite Team here KXIP, it means all matches which involved KXIP (match day) with my fun questions here (Now added polls to select team, based on poll results, i will stick to that team 14 matches)
3 questions will be posted for every match day, first 2 dimers who will predict correct answers will be the winner of that match day. 1st prize- Rs.30 GV, 2nd Prize – Rs.20 GV

Also, there are some people who don’t like Cricket/not much knowledge. Based on that I have decided to give some consolation prizes for participants those who haven’t won any prizes from the beginning (any GVs from start of the contest till end) will get a chance to win a consolation prizes (random draw).


Admins are also allowed in this contest. @Mj911 @Priyanka @Rosh_0007 @ankur2.0 @admin and all others


Appreciate everyone’s comments/thoughts/suggestions (Request: Try to add in English, if not at least with Translation)

Planned Rules:

  • 3 Question per match day
  • 2 Winners per match, those who predict earlier (if more than 1 dimer answered all 3 as correct)
  • If no winners for that day, prize amount will be carry over and for next matches it will be added and winners count may get increased or prize amount will get increased for that match day
  • 1 Dimer can’t win more than one prize in a 1 day (2 separate winners per day)
  • One can predict any number of times (can’t edit once posted**), but only last prediction will be consider as a valid entry.
  • One should predict answers 10 mins before official Toss time of that particular match
  • For eligible to get a chance in consolation prize draw, dimers need to participate in at least 10 matches without winning any prizes (Prize can be around Rs.50 with 3-5 winners)

P.S:

**Once everything confirmed, I will create separate thread will Final Rules and ask admins to make it sticky(non-editable), so that it will be transparent and also easier for me to choose winners as per rules.

Now added polls to select team, based on poll results, i will stick to that team 14 matches as Match day

Good luck to all


Planned Match Day Schedule:

Based on vote results, MI & CSK have almost equal votes of 22 & 21 respectively (at the time writing this), as expected.

So, I picked 14 Match days from these 2 teams playing matches and considering at least 1 day to 4 days gap between match day

Day 1: April 9th, MI vs RCB

Day 2: April 13th, KKR vs MI

Day 3: April 16th, PK vs CSK

Day 4: April 19th, CSK vs RR

Day 5: April 23th, PK vs MI

Day 6: April 25th, CSK vs RCB

Day 7: April 28th, CSK vs SRH

Day 8: May 1st, MI vs CSK

Day 9: May 4th, SRH vs MI

Day 10: May 8th, RR vs MI

Day 11: May 12th, CSK vs KKR

Day 12: May 16th, CSK vs MI

Day 13: May 20th, RCB vs MI

Day 14: May 23th, MI vs DC && RCB vs CSK

There are 3 prizes and 3 winners per match day (DD team also added more prize for this contest, initially i planned Rs.50/ day, now its doubled )

1st Prize: Rs.50 Amazon GV | 2nd Prize: Rs.30 Amazon GV | 3rd Prize: Rs.20 Amazon GV

Don’t want to carry over prizes for next day, so adding some rules to decide winners on same day itself (even if no one predict all 3 answers as correct),

3 Questions will be asked for Match Day.. (not easy to predict but can be possible considering more participation and combination of result possible)
+
1 Tie-Breaker Question (easier to predict like who will win toss, who will be winner, which team bat first etc – less possible answers)
(This will be only considered, if no winners by answering 3 questions)

For Example:

If any one predicts, all 3 question.
Then that dimer will be the winner FCFS (based on latest answer of the dimer), no matter whether dimer predicts correctly or not for tie-breaker question.

If no one predicts aall 3 correct, then Tie-breaker answer will be considered along with other answers.
Those who answered correctly for atleast 2 questions(any 2) along with Tie-breaker question will be winner FCFS (based on latest answer of the dimer)

Thanks to @bumblefoot @Rosh_0007 @MJ911 @Priyanka and all other admins

If anything unclear or any suggestion, please mention it.. Final post will be created tomorrow with full final details..

Yes. That’s gambling when one has to pay money to participate and win, which is why I never take part in that, no matter how small the fee is or how big the prize is.
I’m Happy with FK & Amazon contests… joy
And nowadays, DD Housie.

So basically you’re saying if  you can get free boose ( Alcohol)  which doesn’t give you any hang over or liver damage then Drinking should be ok.  🤔 wink

But on a serious note:

Life is made up of numerous decisions (  from  a choosing new icecream flavour, to choosing a life partner) and it’s not always possible ( or practical)  to calculate the odds before making this decision ( then it’s nothing more than a  bet). It’s certain that we’d make atleast few wrong  decisions.

What I’m trying to say, don’t get addicted to winning or success. It can be dangerous.

Personal Observation: People who don’t face much failure or aren’t taught to handle/embrace failure in young age ( like  the consistent class toppers) are more likely to have irrational or extreme reaction to failure when they meet the unfair and cruel “Real World” . (Like Suicide or drug abuse.)

Lol, in stock market Option & future are purely gambling.
Introduced those things only for earning.
If stocks markets have basics, same like gambling it too have basics ( i am not talking about match-fixing)..

If you don’t know the basics, facts, stats – 100% you will end up of wrong side.

Also, 100% risks involved in both.
High-risk, high-return.

More or less, i have done both and personally feel both have almost similar characteristics.
If you want to defend one topic and neglect other, yes you can.

Both have similar Pros/Cons

Futures or options are for hedging your positions.

When any one enters those without underlying holding positions – it becomes gambling.

I was just kidding with above post.

But

On serious note

it depends upon a person weather he want to become investor or gambler in stock market.

No no. those things were introduced to hedge the investment, not to earn. Earning is a happy accident bro.
