Beat The Drop At Paddy Power To Win 250K

This Offer Has Expired.

Beat The Drop has become a popular feature at Paddy Power since it originally launched during the 2018 World Cup. Back then you could play to win a million, but the promotion settled down to offer just 1000. This free to play game however is back and boosted again for the Euros 2020 and this time there's a nice 250,000 to be won. All you have to do is answer 20 questions and any money left in the pot after all the questions are answered is yours to keep. Sounds easy doesn't it!

Play For Free

To play Euro 2020 Beat The Drop for free you first need to claim your entry. Head over to Paddy Power, login and head to the sportsbook promotions page. From there you'll find a blue 'Claim Button' which once click gets you your free entry. Note that you can play Euro 2020 Beat The Drop even if you've previously played other versions of Beat The Drop. Once you've claimed you can start to answer the 20 questions which could win you 250,000. You can start the game at any time between the 10th June and 25th June 2021. After the 25th there won't be the opportunity to answer the 20 questions.

How To Beat The Drop

With Euro 2020 Beat The Drop you need to answer 20 questions correctly. These questions are based on a sporting fixture, so for example the first Euro 2020 question is who will Italy be leading at half time in the game versus Turkey. You start off with 250,000 and have to decide how much you'd like to split between the two options of yes will be leading or no they'll be drawing or behind. For example if you think Italy will definitely be ahead then you might want to put 225,000 on 'Yes' leaving 25,000 on 'No'. Alternatively if you're undecided then you could try a 50/50 split. However remember that the outcome of the game determines how much you have left in the pot for round 2. If Italy lead at half time you'll be playing with 225,000 in round 2.

How To Win

Obviously the aim of the game is to try and retain as much of the pot as possible throughout the series of questions. In many respects it's very much like The Million Pound Drop and to be honest that's the best way to think of it. Assess the question and then use your skill and judgement to split the pot accordingly or maybe go all in! If by some miracle you've reached question 20 and got the answer to that one correct you will win the money that's left in your pot. If that amount is 250,000 then you deserve every penny and should consider a career in clairvoyancy. In our view we expect the vast majority of players to lose their pots very quickly and that they'll be very few winners.

Beat The Drop Strategy

We're not convinced that there's any good strategy when it comes to Beat The Drop. After all you're relying on the outcome of an uncontrollable event to determine your fate. However you can try and give yourself an edge by looking at the odds before making your split. This isn't an infallible approach but taking the question above as an example Turkey are 6/1 to be ahead at half time. On the other hand Italy are 11/10. However - and this is where flies land in the ointment - a draw is also 11/10. Strategy comes more into play when the question is very 50/50 and that's where you either need to gamble on play safe with a split. By the way if you just opted for 50/50 splits we think you'd end up with just 1!
