You can now get financial compensation if someone spoils 'Game of Thrones' for you

Game of Thrones is mere days away from the end to an exceptional eight-year run, and so, of course, the hype surrounding the fantasy drama is in full swing.

In Sunday's finale episode, we will find out once and for all which characters will next succumb to the show's notoriously extensive bloodbath, which of them will make it out alive and most importantly, who will win the coveted Iron Throne?

Watch the preview to the last-ever episode of Game of Thrones:

Fans are very heavily invested in the show, and, needless to say, they don't take too kindly to anything that might spoil their viewing pleasure. Like, you know, finding out a significant plotline before they've had the chance to sit down and watch the episode with their own two eyes.

Unfortunately, the internet is GoT spoilers-galore right now and so avoiding them is a near-impossible task.

Having said that, though, there is a potentially profitable silver lining to it all.

It's true! Endsleigh Insurance Services have announced they will be offering 'Spoiler Cover' to UK-based fans of the hit HBO show.

The policy will give fans the chance to claim financial compensation for any plotlines they've had spoiled for them by friends, family or the internet.

So if you live in the UK and have had the show spoiled for you (I mean, who hasn't?), then you could potentially receive as much as £100 in compensation. Note that there is a limited number of payouts available.

Plus, claimants will also receive a NOW TV pass so they can re-watch all eight seasons of the show.

All you have to do is submit a 100-word statement detailing how exactly the plot was spoiled for you and include any supporting evidence.

This is the trailer for the Game of Thrones documentary The Last Watch (see how emotional Kit Harington gets):

The spoiler incident for which you are claiming compensation can have occurred at any point in time since the show began. So, if you came across a spoiler back in, say, 2011, your case is still totally valid.

So, what are you waiting for? Get claiming!

"Game of Thrones is one of the biggest shows of the decade and the last few episodes promise to bring in some of the largest audiences on record," Julia Alpan, head of marketing at Endsleigh, says.

"With the show historically airing on US screens ahead of the UK, spoilers have always been an issue - so we wanted to address that head on with the first ever spoiler insurance policy, that will offer financial compensation for anyone whose day is ruined by an unwanted plot reveal.

This is the first time we've launched a spoiler insurance offering, but if we receive a good response then we might even roll the policy out for other popular TV shows - next up, Love Island!"
