What is beat the drop?

Beat the drop is a free-to-play or pay-to-play game offered by Paddy Power. Anyone registered with either of these two bookmakers can play this game as long as you’re 18 years or over.

How to play beat the drop

To play you need to log onto your account choose your first fixture and market from the list available. The question you could be asked could be something like ‘will this game be a draw at halftime?’ or ‘will Leeds win tonight?’.

Now that you know the question you now need to decide how confident you are in it. Move the slider along the question to wager different amounts of money on each outcome. If you’re playing the free-to-play version, you’ll be wagering an amount of your £5,000 this can be split between the answers in any way you think is best.

If you get the question right, you’ll move on to the next stage. However, you’ll only move on with the amount you put on the correct side. This means if you put £900 on yes and £4,100 on no and the correct answer is no then you move to the next question with £4,100 to play with.

For free-to-play players, this is then repeated 15 times and whatever you come out with at the end of wagering you get to keep as cash! Be aware though you have to wait for the game of your chosen question to be confirmed before you can move on to the next one. This means you may have to play for a considerable amount of time before you see any return however it has the potential to be more than worth it.
