It’s all about the Benjamins. And football too.
NFL training camps are open. NFL betting is already open, with futures and Week One lines available. The Eagles and Steelers are preparing for another season, which is scheduled to start in a month.
And thanks to BetRivers online sports betting and PlaySugarHouse, you can win some money during it. The PA sports betting sites are bringing back their popular Pro Football Pick ’Em contest for a second straight season. The entry fee is only $100 — one Benjamin Franklin bill — through August 31, with prices rising to $125 from Sept. 1-7 and then $150 after that.
But your pigskin prowess could earn you many more Benjamins, with a top payout of $125,000. And if entry fees exceed $500,000, all the prizes will increase even further.
Let’s take a quick look at how it all works.
Pro Football Pick ’Em makes every game matter
Entrants into the Pro Football Pick ’Em pool will select the winner of every NFL game this season. The player who has picked the most winners at the end of the season will collect a guaranteed prize of $125,000, with the opportunity to win even more. In all, 500 players will earn prizes from a cash pool that will total at least $500,000.
And the top scorer on each site will earn $2,500 every week. Even the biggest loser also wins. The entrant with the most incorrect picks throughout the season will receive a $2,500 payout.
It’s certain to be a popular contest, and best of all, the prize pool is rake-free. All of the money collected goes directly toward player payouts, resulting in a rare 100% payback rate on all entry fees.
“We are really excited to offer this pick ’em promotion to our players again this NFL season,” said Mattias Stetz, COO of Rush Street Interactive, which operates both BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com.
“We love giving our players the opportunity to win huge cash prizes, and we are able to do so by adding 100% of the entry fees directly into the prize pool. This contest was largely successful last season, and we look forward to giving sports bettors a thrilling way to get in on the game action for the second year in a row.”
Each player can enter up to 25 times per site
Players must submit picks each week and must be in the state of Pennsylvania to enter.
The NFL must also finish at least nine weeks of the season in order for the contest to be completed.
- In the event that the NFL regular season is shortened to eight weeks or fewer, all entries will be refunded and no additional prizes will be paid.
- In the event that the NFL regular season is shortened, but at least nine weeks are completed, the contest will be adjudicated based on the point totals at the end of the shortened season.
Each player can submit up to 25 entries per site. Visit the contest’s home page at BetRivers or PlaySugarHouse to get started.
Could you be the next $125,000 Pick ’Em winner?
Last season, a retired construction worker earned the $125,000 prize. Could it be you this year?
You’ll need to enter to even have a chance.
But if you do it before the end of the month, it will only cost 100 bucks.
