I’ve never been much of a gambler…I’m way too cheap for that. So when my friend Erik asked if I wanted to play this game, I was a little skeptical. I’m pleased to report that there is ZERO risk involved and a ton to gain. If you’re a sports enthusiast, this is definitely worth checking out. Here’s how it works:
You must sign up for an FREE account here. If you have a smart phone, download the app (again free). Then daily, ESPN generates a bunch of games and in some cases individual matchups where you pick the winner. You can pick as many of the matchups as you want to participate in. The basic idea is to get the longest winning streak. Now for the best part…the prizes. They pay out CASH to the winner(s). How much? Here’s how the prize money is distributed.
*Monthly Streak Prize:$50,000 – This goes to the person who accumulates the longest winning streak during any one month – it starts over each month. They are a few tiebreakers in the event that there is a tie. If your streak is broken anytime in the month, you can immediately start over.
*Monthly Bonus Prize:$50,000 – ESPN sets a monthly streak “threshold” minimum of either 25, 27, or 30. If the monthy streak winner hits the threshold minimum, they’ll also gain the bonus prize. If the monthly streak winner doesn’t hit the threshold, that bonus money rolls over to the NEXT month and so on, increasing the bonus pot until somebody hits it.
*Monthly Win Prize:$2,500 – This goes to the person who accumulates the most WINS (regardless of streak) during any one month – it starts over each month. They are a few tiebreakers in the event that there is a tie.
Think it’s too good to be true? So did I, but this is really legit. If you’re playing it, please let me know so we can add each other as “friends”. Good luck everybody!
