The value in this promotion depends on several factors but the most important factor is how much money is in the pool, which we don’t know! Knowing that would let us to determine the value on each player.
To take an extreme example, if you were the sole punter (small pool size) to pick the correct 1st try scorer then it’s happy days! You’ve just pocketed yourself $5,000 in Reward Points. At the opposite end of the spectrum, you could put $10 on Addo-Carr along with 1000 other punters (big pool) and if he scores first, you collect pocket change in Reward Points, along with everyone else who backed him.
We can approximate the proportion of money that’s on each player based on the market prices (a player at $10 will very roughly have twice the money on him than a player at $20) but the problem is that we have no idea about the volume of money in the pool, which affects how many reward points you receive and the value on this bet.
We’ve seen similar promotions before from Crownbet where they’ve offered $10,000 and $5,000 in reward points for 2nd and 3rd in a horse race. $10,000 promotions were worth a bet but the $5,000 promotions didn’t really make the cut, and those races were less popular events than State of Origin (i.e. those races were easier to receive more reward points).
If you’re having a bet (not recommended), it does not matter whether you bet $10 or $50. $10 will result in 5 x less reward points than $50 if your 1st try scorer bet wins. Just make sure to bet in increments of $10 (e.g. $10, $20, $30, $40 or $50) as amounts in between waste value.
Verdict: D selection
