The football pools were not classed as gambling by the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Act which defined them as competitions of skill, rather than chance. The air of legitimacy, combined with the low stakes, made it popular with those who would not otherwise gamble. As such, it was a common allwin theme, designed to attract players already familiar with the game. The ‘Penny Points’ coupon (so called because each line on the coupon cost a penny) was the most popular type until 1946, when the ‘Treble Chance’ was introduced. Oliver Whales used that theme too, together with Fixed Odds and Easy Perm. All cups pay 2D.
