OSGA Announces Winner of College Bowl Bonanza

Posted by on 07 Jan 2014 | Tagged as: Promotions

After last nights’ terrific College Football National Championship game OSGA is pleased to announce the winner of their 11th Annual College Bowl Bonzanza! Danishwop finished atop the standings with 31 total points and 25 wins beating the runner-up by just 1 point.

OSGA has run some form of free College Bowl contest for over a decade and this year the contest had new software and a new sponsor. The software made it very interesting as players had to pick 5 ‘key picks’ wroth extra points – key wins was also the first tie-breaker. The new sponsor was BetPhoenix, based in Costa Rica.

In 2nd place with 30 points was ‘Husker POWER’ who really did well with College Football this year, winning the 2013 OSGA College Football Pick ‘Em. 3rd place, with 29 points and tied with two other players was ‘SBRUNIES’, who gets a $250 Free Play at BetPhoenix . ‘Richman’ and Jaws37 rounded out the top 5. Cash and sportsbook free plays were awarded to places 1-10.

“Luckily we had multiple tie-breakers setup this year”, stated Jim Quinn, President of OSGA. “The competition was fierce and we had to go down to the 4th tie-breaker (BCS Winner) to separate the final three prize spots.”

This has been another great year for the Annual Bowl Bonanza. The Members-only Pro Football Playoff Pick ‘Em is still underway and in about 8 weeks, the 12th annual NCAA Tourney Contest will be available to all OSGA visitors, fans and members..

OSGA Announces Winner of 2013 Pro Football Progressive Pick ‘Em Contest

Posted by on 31 Dec 2013 | Tagged as: Promotions

The Off Shore Gaming Association (OSGA) is pleased to announce the winners of our annual Pro Football Progressive Pick ‘Em Contest. The 2013 OSGA Pro Football Progressive Pick ‘Em winner is ‘Kenny Bigg’ who beat out over 150 contestants to win the cash grand prize.

The OSGA sponsors several football contests that run for the full football season, but the granddaddy is the Progressive Pick ‘Em for Pro Football, now in it’s seventh year.

The OSGA Pro Football Progressive Pick ‘Em was two contests in one! Each week there was also a prize winner of a $100 free betting account at OSGA Elite-rated BetOnline.ag. Every week the player with the most wins for that week was given a $100 Free Play. Though a deposit was required, BetOnline gave away nearly $2000 in weekly prize Free Plays.

This year OSGA’s popular Progressive Pick ‘Em saw the Progressive part of the contest hit for the second year in a row. In fact two players both went 12-0 in week 8 and thus shared in the progressive pool of $800. ‘Kenny Bigg’ ended up the season with a whopping 72.8% winning percentage overall defeating ‘H8H8rs’ (166-75) by 8 wins! ‘Kenny’ will get 50% of the remaining progressive prize pool of $900. ‘H8H8rs’ won 25% of the pool or $225. In 3rd place was ‘chico’ with record of 165-76 and a prize of $90 Cash. ‘doctordanger’ was just three wins behind and thus got $90 cash too. $45 was awarded to 5th Place finisher ‘illiniwx4caster’ who tied ‘Miklos’ with 161 wins but beat him by just 1 point in the tie-breaker to finish in the money. In all more than 25% of players hit games at a clip of 60% or better which is quite impressive.

“This year we implemented some new software and after some initial glitches, our contests were better than ever,” stated Jim Quinn from OSGA. “We are fortunate to be able to work with some great sportsbooks to be able to offer these contests for our fans, visitors and members and look forward to crowning a College Bowl Champ next week,” added Quinn.

This has been another great year for the OSGA Progressive Pick ‘Em. OSGA is looking forward to crowning a winner in the 11th Annual Bowl Challenge next week and their annual NCAA Tourney Contest in March.

OSGA Announces Winner of 2013 College Football Pick ‘Em Contest

Posted by on 27 Dec 2013 | Tagged as: Promotions

The Off Shore Gaming Association (OSGA) is pleased to announce the winners of our first ever College Football Pick ‘Em Contest. The 2013 OSGA College Football Pick ‘Em winner is ‘Husker POWER’ who beat out over 130 contestants to win the grand prize of $500 cash.

The OSGA sponsors several football contests that run for the full football season. This year OSGA added a Free College Football Contest after getting requests and suggestions from Members and fans of the site.

The OSGA College Football Pick ‘Em was two contests in one! Each week players picked 10 of 15 games posted by the OSGA Contest Master and ranked each game to achieve the most points. There was a weekly winner crowned garnering a $250 free play at SportsBettingOnline for the player who got the most points for that week. Though a deposit was required, SportsBettingOnline gave away nearly $4000 in weekly prize Free Plays.

We are still in shock that after all of the games and potential scoring variations that there was a tie for the overall #1 spot for the season with 451 points. So the tie-breaker, the overall win percentage for the year, had to be implemented. ‘Husker POWER’s’ winning percentage was 62.58% (82-57) for the entire season smoking ‘buster73′ (75-64) by nrealy 10 percentage points! In 3rd place was ‘rudydog’ with 444 points, a record of (80-60) and a prize of $100 Cash. ‘rickstew’came in 4th with 444 points too, but had a lower win percentage and thus got $75 cash. $50 was awarded to 5th Place finisher ‘sands71′ with 442 points and 6th place winner ‘Money’, who had 435 points. $25 was awarded to places 7-10.

There was a slight delay in posting the prize winners this year as OSGA had never gotten confirmation from SportsBettingOnline regarding the second part of the contest, the overall winners. “Unfortunately, we never had sorted out the final prizes with SBO and suddenly the contest was over, right during the Holidays,” said Jim Quinn, President of OSGA. “We finally figured, let’s just give these winners cash . . . prizes one through ten. After all, who doesn’t love cash and SBO did such a great job of handing our prizes and crediting winning players, going above and beyond the call of duty for several of the winners, that we had no problem taking care of all of the final prizes.”

This has been another great year for the College Football Pick ‘Em and the OSGA Progressive Pick ‘Em, now in it’s last week. OSGA is looking forward to crowning a winner in the 11th Annual Bowl Challenge next week and their annual NCAA Tourney Contest in March.

Contest Season at OSGA

Posted by on 06 Dec 2013 | Tagged as: Promotions

We have been running contests for our visitors for nearly 15 years and we keep getting requests for more, especially from our Members. This year we are using new software and though there have been some bugs and glitches, we have been able to give more to our visitors and Members.

At this time of year we have several contests going on and in 2013 we have offered more free football contests than ever. Unfortunately for more than 100 players, this is the last weekend for our first ever College Football Pick ‘em.

Each week players chose 10 out of 15 hand-picked college football games. Players chose ten games Against the Spread and assigned ‘confidence points’ to their selections. This contest challenged players to not just pick winners, but to grab the most points possible by assigning the highest point values to their favorite games. There were several weeks where the player who picked the most winners, did not have the most points. So far, contest sponsor SportsBettingOnline has given away over $3000 worth of free play betting money. They have done an excellent job crediting players, usually within a few hours. Good Luck to all players in the final week of the College Football Pick ‘Em.

This past weekend we ran our first-ever Members-Only Thanksgiving Weekend Pick ‘Em. This contest was a tremendous success for our members who picked pro football games on Thanksgiving and Sunday and College Rivalry games on Friday and Saturday, 20 games in all. This contest paid the top 5 winners and had a very unique occurrence. The top prizes were cash prizes and top sportsbooks WagerWeb and GTBets sponsored the rest of the prizes. Unfortunately, for one of the winners, GTBets refused to let him play as he was from the Bayou state and GTBets doesn’t accept players from Louisiana. So WagerWeb stepped up to the plate and gave away an additional prize. And, GTBets paid the prize that was left on the table to the next finisher. Thus we had 6 winners and a special thanks to WagerWeb and GTBets

Our annual Pro football contest, the OSGA Progressive Pick ‘em, is chugging along. The progressive prize of $100 a week in cash that builds each week was hit by two players back in week 8. Each winner got a check for $400. The current progressive prize is again back up there again at $600. In addition, weekly winners are given a $100 free Play at elite-rated BetOnline. To date BetOnline has given away over $1200 to contest winners.

Finally, the OSGA Members-only squares contest is entering its 14th week. The contest is setup as a simple free squares game with a $25 VISA gift card going to the halftime score winner and a $50 one sent to the player who has the square that corresponds to the final score. Every week the board is filled with OSGA Members who get to pick 5 squares for the MNF game. Unfortunately for members, a few weeks have had blank squares as winners. But prizes are double for next week’s winners! Members can simply get the weekly contest password by logging into the Member Zone or can grab it out of the weekly Member newsletter.

Good Luck to everyone who has participated and those still alive in our contests. Next up is our College Bowl Pick ‘em and with our new software, look for something special after all of the Bowl games are announced!
