Each PROPOGOAL competition includes thirty (30) matches.

A match Half-time can be included in a PROPOGOAL competition as a stand-alone match.

Who wins?

Winning tickets for the prediction of the eight (8) matches are allocated to the following three (3) prize categories according to the number of correct predictions:

a)     Winning tickets that include correct predictions on all eight (8) football matches of the winning column are allocated to prize category (I)

b)     Winning tickets that include correct predictions on seven (7) football matches out of the eight (8) in the winning column are allocated to prize category (II)

c)      Winning tickets that include correct predictions on six (6) football matches out of the eight (8) in the winning column are allocated to prize category (III)

The winning column is made up of the eight (8) matches with the highest number of goals scored. If for the last spots of the winning column there are more than one match with equal number of goals scored, then the matches with the most goals scored by away teams are selected. If again there is a tie, then the winning selections are the matches that are placed higher on the play slip's numbered list.


1.      For the settlement of the PROPOGOAL winning column, from now on only the score at Full-time will be taken into consideration and not goals scored in extra time.

2.      Match postponement: If one or more matches are postponed and rescheduled to take place not more than one (1) day from the last scheduled match on the play slip, then there is no need for a draw to complete the winning column and the result of the actual match is included in the winning column. This provision is applied only when at the time of the postponement or discontinuation of the match, the replay date is announced according to either the provisions of the competition (championship, cup) or the decisions made at the moment of the postponement or discontinuation of the match. The new date is announced to the public by OPAP S.A. at the time of the announcement of the postponement of discontinuation of the match.

Winnings distribution & Prizes per winning ticket

The total amount distributed as winnings in every competition in all prize categories constitutes 45% of the gross pool fund after the deduction of agents' fees (in total 39.60% of the gross pool fund) and is distributed in the three prize categories as such:

a)     40% of that is distributed to 1st prize category winning tickets

b)     33% of that is distributed to 2nd prize category winning tickets

c)      27% of that is distributed to 3rd prize category winning tickets

If the amount corresponding to a lesser prize category is higher than the corresponding amount of a higher prize category, then the total distributed amounts are added and their sum is subsequently equally divided among all winning tickets of both prize categories.


When there are no winning tickets in any of the prize categories described in paragraph 1 of this article, then the amount corresponding to this prize category is not distributed and there is a rollover to the next appropriate competition at which time this amount it is added to the amount distributed in the same prize category (JACK POT).
