bet365 and Incentive Games have partnered ahead of a jam-packed summer soccer season to create a pair of predictor games. It's an exciting summer ahead for fans of the beautiful game, and it's an exciting summer ahead for bettors at one of our best sports betting sites.

With the UEFA Euro 2024 set to commence on June 14, and the 2024 Copa America slated to get underway on June 20, fans will be able to participate in the Euro Finals Group Stage Predictor and the Copa Finals Group Stage Predictor. Both games will be free to play and will have huge prize pools. Existing and new users located where bet365 is legal can participate, and what better way for new users to sign up than by using our bet365 bonus code: SBRBONUS!

Victoria Harnett, Product Lead at Incentive Games, commented, “We’re so proud to once again join forces with bet365 to deliver bespoke and truly industry-leading game experiences to their users. This partnership is a testament to the power of collaboration and our shared vision of redefining free-to-play experiences, making them more engaging, and, ultimately, more rewarding.”

Euro 2024 details

Euro 2024 will begin on June 14 and run until July 14. Twenty-four teams from across Europe will descend on 10 host cities in Germany. Teams are divided into six Groups and will play a round robin from June 14-26. Each group will advance two teams to the Round of 16 Knockout stage, and the six third-placed teams will be ranked, with the top four moving to the Round of 16. 

Euro 2020 was postponed to 2021 due to the global pandemic, throwing off the event's normal four-year cycle. Italy picked up its second title in the event following a 3-2 penalty victory over England. Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal was awarded the top goal scorer, netting five balls and assisting on one more.

Following the conclusion of this year's tournament, the four-year cycle will resume, with the 2028 tournament set for the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Ahead of the tournament, make sure to look at our Euro 2024 odds and our Euro top goal scorer odds.

2024 Copa America details

The 2024 Copa America gets underway shortly after the Euro, starting on June 20 and running until July 14. Two confederations - CONMEBOL and CONCACAF - will field 16 teams, playing in 14 host cities in the United States. 

Due to the smaller number of teams competing, there are only four Groups of four. Like the Euro, they'll play a round robin with the top two teams from each Group advancing to the quarterfinals. 

Argentina won for the 15th time in 2021, holding host Brazil scoreless in a 1-0 final. Lionel Messi (Argentina) and Luis Diaz (Colombia) finished the event with four goals. It should come as little surprise that Argentina and Brazil find themselves atop the 2024 Copa America odds and that Messi is the favorite by the Copa America 2024 top goal scorer odds.

The new free games

The two new games are open to existing users at one of our best soccer betting sites, and entrants can play both. The task of the free-to-play games is to correctly pick the correct outcome of the finals group stage. Outcomes include win, lose, or draw. 

As the tournament progresses, the matches have a higher associated point total. As players get more correct guesses, they move up the leaderboard. A jackpot of $1 million is included in the prize pool for any entrant who guesses the correct outcome of every game. 

“With excitement growing for this summer’s European Championships and Copa America, we’re delighted to launch the ‘Group Stage Predictor’ game for each, in collaboration with Incentive Games." said a bet365 spokesperson, "We’re confident that soccer fans will enjoy testing their prediction skills against fellow fans.”
