Sky's Super 6 paid out its third winner of the season in 35 rounds two weekends ago, crossing the £1m threshold in jackpot pay-outs for the season in the free-to-play football score predictor.
In addition to a group of 55 players who shared the £250,000 jackpot in January, Stuart McClung defied odds of 214,580/1 with his six correct score predictions in game week 33 to become the third individual winner of the £250,000 grand prize this season.
The weekly promotion has proved so popular with football fans around the world thanks to its simplicity and the fact that it is completely free to enter. Simply visit the Super 6 site at Sky or download their free app to take part yourself.
Football's ultimate prediction game runs through until the end of the current Premier League season, this week switching its attention back to England's domestic league action after the vital matter of FA Cup Quarter-Finals took centre stage in the first weekend of March.
The six games chosen this weekend for round 35 includes four Premier League match-ups, plus a pair of Championship games on Saturday 14 March.
Arsenal invite West Ham United to the Emirates looking to hang on to third spot in the Premier League, while rock bottom Leicester City enter a must-win clash against fellow relegation battlers, Hull City.
Sunderland remain just four points from the drop ahead of Aston Villa's visit to the Stadium of Light, the away side in more trouble as they sit a place below the Black Cats and on the brink of slipping into the bottom three. West Brom and Stoke City look more comfortable ahead of their game at the Hawthorns, while the final pair of Super 6 games come from the Championship.
Leaders Bournemouth this Saturday face Blackpool who sit opposite them at the foot of the table, the home side one of four clubs all on 66 points at the top of the table. Derby are another of those four sides and they travel to face Norwich City, who sit only a mere point from joining them at the top.
Correctly predict the result of the chosen Super 6 matches to win the £5,000 weekly competition. If there is more than one winner, the Golden Goal tie-breaker comes into play where players must predict the minute of the first goal scored across all six games.
If the winner of the weekly competition has also predicted six correct scores, they will receive an additional £1000 bonus, but to bag the whopping £250,000 jackpot, players must predict the correct scores for all of the Super 6 matches in any given week.
Sky's own renowned TV football pundits will often give away their own tips in Super 6 each week, including Sky Sports presenters such as Soccer Saturday's Jeff Stelling and former footballing aces Matt Le Tissier, Phil Thompson, Paul Merson and Charlie Nicholas.
