The Small Print

No tipster can be awarded more than one badge in any calendar month. In the event that a tipster qualifies for more than one award they will receive the highest award to which they are entitled. For example, the overall top tipster at the end of the year cannot also receive the award for their category and will be presented with a Gold Badge.

Where an award is not presented because of a multiple winner it will NOT be cascaded down to the next best finisher.

Badge winners are entitled to display the badge on their web site, use it in promotional material and generally promote the award.

The badges will carry the year they were awarded, and this cannot be altered or removed by the recipient.

Any tipster found to be displaying a badge(s) which they are not entitled to will be removed from the Tipstars site immediately and added to the "wall of shame".

"Verified By" Criteria

After three months membership of Tipstars all services will receive a Bronze “Verified By Tipstars” Badge.

After 12 months membership this will be exchanged for a Silver version and after 24 months upgraded to a Gold “Verified by Tipstars” Badge.

Badge recipients are entitled to display the badge on their web site, use it in promotional material and generally promote the award for the duration of their membership of Tipstars.

The verified logo is intended to portray the service’s membership of Tipstars, that it proofs all tips to us, that its results are available and verified on the Tipstars website and that the service is considered to be genuine and trustworthy.

It does not mean that Tipstars endorse or recommend the service and should not be used in anyway which conveys this impression.
