Midnight Madness Promotion Pays Out…

On Wednesday, October 29, 2014,  Matthew Kark found out what it’s like to be the Big Man on Campus.

Kark, a senior at Marist College, won $10,000, paid for by Odds On Promotions, after netting an impressive half-court basketball shot during Marist Madness, the school’s Midnight Madness event.

According to Andy Alongi, Assistant Athletic Director – External Affairs, Marist Madness was ‘revived’ this year by request of the student government. Organized to generate excitement in preparation for the coming basketball season, Marist Madness gave students the chance to meet the basketball teams and participate in a variety of contests and games, culminating in one randomly selected student getting the chance to win $10,000 in the half-court shot contest


The event attracted between 800 and 900 students-filling the student section of McCann Arena. Of course, for us, the best part is the response of the students, not to mention the members of the men’s and women’s basketball teams after Kark drained it from center court.

Looking to increase gate and get students and sponsors psyched up for the coming season? Check out our winning roster of basketball promotions, then give us a call at 800-827-2249.

Want More Brides to Visit Your Booth? Give Away A Dream Wedding, On Us!

Wedding Themed Video Scratch & WinPlanning on attending a wedding expo or bridal fair this Spring?

In addition to building an attractive display,  selecting just the right team to staff your booth, and creating a strong follow-up plan,  you’ve got to address the most important element of all:  creating a promotion or offer that will ensure a steady stream of qualified traffic to your booth.

While sending direct mail postcards, posting flyers, placing advertising, and telling prospective customers on phone, the web and on social media that you’ll be at a particular show are all important, just imagine how much more effective those mentions and ads will be when you say, “And, when you stop by our booth, you’ll not only get to speak with our staff, but you’ll also get a chance to win a $100,000 dream wedding.”

And Odds On Promotions makes it easy to do exactly that.  If you’re looking to capture more leads at your booth during your next bridal expo or wedding fair  then Odds On’s Dream Wedding Video Scratch & Win Game could be a great solution.

Brides and grooms simply select six spots on the tabletop or handheld tablet’s touchscreen grid, unveiling matching symbols, winning prizes based upon how many symbols they can find.  If a lucky couple can find 6 matching symbols, they’ll win their dream wedding (up to $100,000) and Odds On Promotions will pick up the tab. Even better, you can  set the prizes and frequency for up to five correct selections giving you the ability to offer promotional items or discounts.
