    I realized I hadn't thought about this silly game in over 20 years, which might explain why they aren't paying out £1500 jackpots anymore.

    But, y'know, it passes the time.

    A, B or C, which ball is the real one? Take your guess! The winners get 1500 Big$occer Dollars, while any cheaters will be banned for life and severely breathalyzed

    Too bad they don't do those contests anymore. Could have been my income right there.

    I remember those in the newspapers. Sometimes those were easy because you could see where they edited the ball out. But when this became digital it made it harder.

    Well, the old-timers would balk at how easy these are -- and multiple-choice??! :oops:

    There was some serious money involved in the newspaper games, because the jackpot kept rising - it ended up as 250,000 GBP because nobody won it in a decade, I think.

    In those, you had to draw a cross in a big space where the ball might be. Someone could only win 1st prize by getting the exact centre of the ball

    Online, it's hard to recreate - they sometimes try with grid references, but it's not quite the same...

    This one was in Australia in 2017:
