Spot The Ball for Cash UK games are primarily about luck. But not many realize there is some skill involved as well.
Intro to Spot the Ball
A player is tasked with guessing the location of a ball, which has been made to disappear technologically. The game could be any ball sport, but football is the most popular game of choice. As aforementioned, everything is not completely guesswork. Quite a few contestants try to find out the spot by using reactions and positions of the players in the picture.
Spot The Ball was first part of the newspapers during the 1970s and 1980s in the UK. Back then it was a paid promotion where the winner was rewarded with cash prizes. Today, those newspaper games may not be around but the game has made a mark for itself in the online space. With the help of computer technology, the game is conducted in a more user-friendly and accurate manner.
An online action image is made of several thousand individual pixels that have a grid-like setup. Entrants could just click any spot on their computer screen, which would correspond to a specific pixel that has its own grid coordinates. In case the player selects the pixel chosen by the judges, or gets close enough, he is adjudged the winner.
The ball’s position can be decided by the game’s promoters. They can either keep the ball in its original place or have it positioned somewhere else in the picture. For the player, this could be a bit misleading but that’s how the game is.
Though luck is a vital aspect of the game, it’s recommended to select a spot carefully and not completely rely on chance.
• Take a look at the players’ body language. Considering the focus is the ball, find out where are the movements of all players directed. Is the ball in play kicked or headed?
• Notice the players’ eyes: See where the players are looking. Are their lines of eyesight converging at a specific point? Draw a line mentally from both the players’ eyes.
• Consider perspective and distance: The image shown would not be a two-dimensional scene. Therefore, account the action’s depth. For example, find out whether the ball is close to the player or the camera.
• Kindly note that the image would exhibit a fast-moving scene. This means certain players could be slow to react a bit when compared to others. The ball could have cleared them before their body and eyes get the opportunity to react.
