We all know June is a little bit slow when it comes to the sports betting front, but July has jammed packed action for all your sports betting needs! We have everything from Wimbledon to a hot dog eating contest, so grab yourself a burger, cocktail, and enjoy the menu!
The online sportsbook launched the contest with $150,000 in the prize pot, including a minimum $100,000 guaranteed first place prize. The pot, however, is expected to grow as the company declared they will put every dollar from entry fees into the prize pool.
“We wanted to make a contest for the players,” said MyBookie sportsbook manager, Ryan Coleman. “We’re not holding back anything. Every dollar collected is going to be given out as a cash prize at the end of the football season.”
Participants can win a portion of the prize pool by selecting five NFL teams, against-the-spread, every week of the regular season. A correct pick earns one point and a push earns a half-point. Collect the most points to become a winner.
The entry fee for the MyBookie SuperContest is $100.
