The Off Shore Gaming Association (OSGA) is pleased to announce ‘tammyb’ as the winner of the 2016 OSGA Pro Football Progressive Pick â€˜Em Contest. â€˜tammybâ€™ beat out over 180 other contestants to win the huge cash grand prize.
The Off Shore Gaming Association (OSGA) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2016 OSGA Pro Football Progressive Pick â€˜Em Contest. OSGA sponsors two football contests that run for the full football season and the Progressive Pick â€˜Em for Pro Football is now in its 10th year. Congratulations go out to â€˜tammybâ€™, who beat out over 180 other contestants to win the huge cash grand prize.
The OSGA Pro Football Progressive Pick â€˜Em was two contests in one! Each week there was also a prize winner of a free play at OSGA Elite-rated Bookmaker.eu. Every week the player with the most wins for that week was given a whopping $500 Free Play. Though a deposit was required, BookMaker gave away over $8000 in weekly prize Free Plays.
The second part of the contest is a season long â€œProgressiveâ€ pool that rewards players who pick all of the weeksâ€™ games correctly. If no player hits all the games, the weekly $100 cash prize rolls over to the next week. In the three out of the last four years, the Progressive Jackpot has been hit multiple times (once for $1200) and this year, Week 8 saw â€˜kevintâ€™ cashing for $800. This win produced the full season prize pool at a maximum of $900.
With 171 wins â€˜tammybâ€™ beat out the field by four games to cash in on 50% of the pool, $450 cash! â€˜tammybâ€™ moved into first place in week 10 and never looked back picking winners at a rate of over 67%. â€˜gpatekâ€™ and â€˜jellyrollâ€™ tied for 2nd place with 167 wins. This effort rewards both players by splitting the 2nd and 3rd place prizes. Second place is 25% of the final Progressive Prize pool and 3rd place is 10%. Both â€˜gpatekâ€™ and â€˜jellyrollâ€™ will get 17.5% of the final pool – $157.50!
Fourth place went to â€˜Tropicalsportsâ€™ who had 166 points and will receive a check for 10% of the prize pool, $90. 5th place ended up in a tie and so according to the rules, the players will split the combined 5th place prize (5% of the prize pool). However, After over 250 games â€˜Bobby Gamblerâ€™ and â€˜jcoleman65 â€˜, both veterans of OSGA contests, had 165 points. Though this would have been good enough in past years to win bigger prizes, these two players were to split $45. But with both players having a tremendous season of picking games, here at OSGA we have decided to reward each of them with the 5% prize!
Every year players seem to be getting better and better at the Pick â€˜Em. In all 40 players hit games at a clip of 60% or better with over 15 different players cashing in on prizes throughout the season.
â€œWe are fortunate to be able to work with some top online sportsbooks to be able to offer these contests,â€ stated Jim Quinn from OSGA. â€œEvery year this contest gets bigger and better and the players are getting smarter! This year we had 7 players tie for prizes in Week 12 and 5 players tie in Week 15,â€ added Quinn.
This has been another great year for the OSGA Progressive Pick â€˜Em. OSGA is looking forward to crowning a winner in the 14th Annual Bowl Challenge next week. Players should make sure to check back for the annual College Basketball Tourney Contest in March.
