  • Players must complete, enter and save, their tips on the Game system before the published deadlines for each round of fixtures. NB: If players do not enter any tips for a round, unless there is a Five Lives feature in play, they will score no points in that round. Apart from any available Five Lives feature, there is no automatic default tipping feature to "save" a player from this penalty for not entering tips.

Moreover, any tips saved after the official bounce of the first game of any round may at Score Five management's discretion lead to the total disqualification of the player from the entire competition.
