Over the weekend, you have been taking part in the twelfth and final round of Eurovision Prediction 2018. We’ve now witnessed the national finals in Norway, Sweden and Lithuania. Therefore, let’s see how the results of these shows have affected the scoreboard. Furthermore, it’s time to discover our winner!
Calculating your points!
As stated in the rules, our scoring system varies depending on what results are revealed during the broadcast. In Sweden and Lithuania, full rankings of the participating entries were revealed during the live broadcast. Therefore, predicting the winning entry would earn you 12 and 6 points respectively. Predicting the runner-up earns you 11 and 5 points respectively and so on.
In Norway, we use a hybrid of our scoring system. Predicting Alexander earns you 10 points, and Rebecca earns you 9 points. With no clarification of who placed third and fourth, predicting either Aleksander or Stella & Alexandra earns you 7 points. Predicting any other finalist earns the minimum 1 point.
Here are the final results!
Over the past three months, an unprecedented 218 of you have taken part in Eurovision Prediction 2018. This more than doubled our previous record of 82 players achieved back in 2016. In addition, we’ve more than tripled the 58 players that took part last year. Thank you to everyone who has played this year and made the game’s move to ESCXTRA.com an unbelievable success!
Going into this final round, Ryan C had a two point lead. Predicting Rebecca instead of Alexander reduced this lead to one point, but this was enough for myself to hang on for victory. Trust me, I certainly didn’t want to win the game I hosted but there we are!
And the prize goes to…
Nevertheless, it is all about the grand prize and this goes to the highest placed finisher not affiliated with ESCXTRA.com. Prior to this round, we had three players in joint second place. With all three opting for Ieva in Lithuania, her victory had no impact. In Scandinavia, both Alex S and Emily predicted Benjamin. However, Alex made a very important decision to predict Alexander Rybak to win in Norway with Emily opting for Rebecca. Meanwhile, Pascal chose to predict two runners-ups in Benjamin Ingrosso and Rebecca.
This has meant that Alex has beaten Emily by a single point and will be awarded the grand prize of a package of promotional items chosen by our ESCXTRA team members in the press centre in Lisbon in May! A massive congratulations to Alex, we will be in contact shortly to arrange delivery details!
