Here at All Bets we are absolute suckers for football. When it comes to the NFL, you can put us in front of a TV showing pretty much any game and we’ll happily cheer (and occasionally jeer) the players endlessly. So that’s why we’re especially excited about the NFL Pick’em Challenge at BetRivers. If you take part, you could win a share of at least $500,000 in weekly and season-long cash prizes. Pretty swish, right?
The NFL Pick’em Challenge is open to all BetRivers customers located within the state borders of Pennsylvania. So if you’re in the Keystone State right now and you’re over 21 years of age, there’s nothing stopping you.
If you don’t have an account, there are really a lot of reasons to get one. Of course, there are the fantastic promotions like the NFL Pick’em Challenge, but there’s also a really brilliant welcome offer open to you when you have this BetRivers Sportsbook Bonus Code.
So the first thing you need to do is sign up to BetRivers, as we mentioned above. Then enter the NFL Pick’em Challenge any time between now and 23:59 ET on September 13. If we were you, we’d register sooner rather than later so you don’t miss out.
Want a little discount? Who doesn’t like a discount. The early bird gets a pretty sweet one this time. You get a $50 discount on each entry if you enter before 1 September. Then for any entries you buy between 1 September and 8 September, you get a $25 discount on each one.
Then you need to buy in to the competition. The full price fee to take part in the NFL Pick’em Challenge is $150 per entry. And each player can create up to 25 entries. Yes, it’s a steep buy-in, but considering the stellar cash prizes, we reckon it’s worth it if you’re a big sports fan. We’d suggest starting with one or two entries and really concentrating on making the best picks with them.
After that, you’ll make weekly picks from Tuesday, 8 September right through until Sunday, 3 January. Yup, that covers all 17 weeks of the regular NFL season!
You make your picks each week, starting from 17:00 ET on Tuesdays and ending at 23:59 ET on Sundays. But remember, once you confirm your picks, no changes can be made for that particular week. So make sure you choose wisely!
The NFL games included in the NFL Pick’em Challenge are the Sunday and Monday pro football games that start at 13:00 ET or later. Any games on Thursday and Saturday are excluded, as are certain Sunday games.
In the event of a tie or if a game is postponed, all contestants earn a correct pick for that game. Pretty sweet, right?
However, if the season is shortened to eight or fewer weeks, all entries will be refunded and no more prizes will be dished out.
But if at least nine weeks are completed, the NFL Pick’em Challenge winners will be decided based on the points totals at the end of the shortened season.
There are two different types of prizes in the NFL Pick’em Challenge. They are weekly prizes and season-long prizes. Let’s take a brief look at how you can win your share of both.
Every week, the players with the most correct picks at BetRivers will get $2,500 in cash. If there’s a tie for the top spot, the tie breaker question comes into play. This question will be about the total points scored in that last scheduled game for that week.
What if there are still more than one player who got a right answer? The second tie breaker then comes into play. The prize goes to the player who entered their pick first. So it surely pays to get your answers in early.
If you are one of the lucky weekly winners, your cash prizes will hit your account by 15:00 ET on Tuesday that week.
At the end of the season the top 500 players with the most correct picks will get cash prizes. Here’s how it’s broken down:
And if there are more entries than add up to $500,000 in buy-ins, you’ll get a little bit more than that! So fingers crossed this particular promotion is over-subscribed so that the prizes are boosted even more.
Had an unlucky season? Well there is a pretty juicy silver lining. You can get a sweet $2,500 cash prize if you have the most incorrect picks.
