Stake Verified Affiliate Bonus Competition Terms & Conditions

These Terms and Conditions apply to the Stake Verified Affiliate Bonus Competition (the Competition).

By participating in the Competition, you agree to be bound by these Stake Verified Affiliate Bonus T&Cs.

If they win, this promotion allows participating Stake Verified Affiliates to earn an incremental bonus in addition to their monthly contracted terms. To enter, participants must agree to these terms, which are in addition to the Stake Verified Affiliate Program Terms & Conditions and the Stake Terms & Conditions.


The promoter is Stakeshop Pty Ltd (ACN 610105505) of Level 10, Aurora Place 88 Phillip Street, Sydney, NSW, 2000.

Promotional Period

The promotional period is from 12:01 am AEDT 13 October 2021 to 11:59pm AEDT 10 November 2021.


To be eligible to enter the Competition, you must be:

  • an Australian resident and over 18 years of age;
  • an approved Stake Verified Affiliate; and
  • invited by the Promoter (Stake) to participate in the Competition.

How to Enter

Eligible participants can enter the Competition by making at least 1 valid referral. A valid referral means the participant refers an individual (Referred Person) to Stake in accordance with the Referral Terms and Conditions, and the Referred Person signs up for a Stake account and deposits funds into it directly through the Stake platform. A Referred Person must not be an existing Stake customer or the same person as the referring participant.

The winners of the promotion will be determined by the highest number of valid referrals made during the promotional period. The participant that makes the highest number of valid referrals by the close of the promotional period will win first prize, the participant that makes the second-highest number of valid referrals by the close of the promotional period will win second prize, and the participant that makes the third-highest number of valid referrals by the close of the promotional period will win third prize.

In the result of multiple participants arriving on even points, the winner will be decided by the order in which the participants reached that final number. For example, if two people both end the competition with the highest number of referrals, e.g. 10 referrals each, Stake will determine who reached the highest number of referrals first and award them with first prize, and the person who reached the highest number of referrals second will be awarded second prize. The person with the second-highest number of referrals will then be awarded the third prize.

The Prize

There are three prizes to be won. Participants are eligible to win a prize for first, second or third position.

  • First prize = A$2,500 (incl. GST)
  • Second prize = A$1,500 (incl. GST)
  • Third prize = A$1,000 (incl. GST)

The total prize pool value for the Competition is AU$5000 (incl. GST).

The three (3) winners will be contacted by Stake via email by 12 November 2021, following the conclusion of the promotional period. All payment of the prize money will be handled through Impact as incremental payment on the next payment roll in November.


If for any reason you believe that there is a discrepancy regarding your referrals, email

Stake may require you to submit additional information in order to determine your referrals. All decisions regarding your referrals will be final and at Stake’s sole discretion.

Stake may decide not to award a prize to a participant if we reasonably suspect a winning entry to involve fraudulent, misleading or deceptive conduct. If this occurs, the winner with the next highest amount of valid referrals will be deemed the winner.
