From 14 June to 15 July, you'll be given a chance to test your predictive powers and win
Toluna points while you're at it. All you have to do is predict who the winners of each
match will be.

There are five stages of the cup where you will need to make your predictions: group,
2nd round, 3rd round, Semi's and the Final
Make sure you get your tips in before the start of the round - once it has started you
can't change your prediction!

(winner/loser) will earn you 1 point

SURVEYS NOT WORKING?
In the past few weeks,
we've noticed a lot of
members reporting to us
that surveys in their
Survey Centre don't work
or are constantly
unavailable. Please be
aware that in most cases,
there are no issues with
your account or the
surveys. The reason this
occurs is because you
have probably already
attempted or completed
the same survey, and
therefore cannot re-enter
Please note that we employ technologies to detect whether a survey has been
attempted through other survey panels or sources. If the survey has already been
attempted, even through sources that are not related to Toluna, you would not be
able to enter it again. These systems are in place to preserve the integrity of the
survey responses and data that is being collected for our clients' studies.
Normally if you have been excluded from participation, you would not receive the
survey invitation. However we cannot fully screen for survey qualification through
the Survey Centre on the site, so sometimes you may see surveys on the site that you
are not eligible for. In these cases you would get a message that says the survey is
unavailable. We know this can be frustrating, but we ask that you simply ignore the
surveys that return this message. Once the surveys have closed, they will be
removed from your survey centre.
BE A TOLUNA MILLIONAIRE!
We are now giving 1 million points to a lucky Toluna Influencer every single day! This
new approach to our lottery allows us to reward our most active and loyal Influencers
on a daily basis.
How does this work?
Simply continue to answer our surveys to collect sweepstakes entries*
The more entries you have, the more chances to win (if you would like to top up,
you can also purchase extra sweepstakes entries from our rewards centre)
There is no limit to the number of sweepstakes entries you can collect.
Where can I find the winners?
We have a dedicated site, which we are updating every day with new winners.
Weekend winners will be added on Mondays, along with the winner for that day. Feel
free to check it out at any time to see all past winners!
How can we be sure that only the most active influencers will be selected?
Winners must have answered at least 1 survey in the 30 days preceding the draw
Winners must be active in the community and have created content in the last 30
days (including but not limited to topics, polls or comments) – this allows more
transparency as the winners will be users that are known in the community
Users must have a profile picture - this can be a picture of anything, as long as it is
not inappropriate or offensive. It does not need to be a personal photo of you.
*Sweepstakes entries are only valid during the month of the draw. This means that
the tickets you win in June can only allow you to win in June. Entries expire at the
end of each month so to qualify for the following month, you must have earned at
least 1 ticket during said month.
Winners are drawn randomly from all participating countries.
To continue with our World Cup theme this month, answer the following true or false
questions and receive 100 points for each correct answer! Click here to provide your
