Excessive Weight Fishing Promotion Pays Off As Monster Catch Leads to Mega Check

Royal Exchange, Australia – Congratulations to Aussie angler Jay Hudson who recently landed a $18,000 prize-winning Tiger Shark during the Botany Bay Game Fishing Club’s Bill Heyward Memorial Fishing Tournament.

To win the grand prize, which was insured by Odds On Promotions, an angler needed to catch a Mako or Tiger Shark that weighed more than 200 kilograms (440 pounds). 

Hudson reeled in a massive Tiger Shark that topped the scales at a whopping 356.5 kilograms (just shy of 786 pounds). Hudson landed the prize-winning shark just outside of Botany Bay on the aptly named vessel, Reaper, using a 15 kilogram test line.

Watch Basketball Fan Make 94-Ft. Putt for a New Car

Newport, Ky. – Congratulations to Bradley Wolfzorn, who won a two-year lease on a new car from Jake Sweeney Automotive, paid for by Odds On Promotions, after sinking an impressive 94-foot, on-court putt at a Northern Kentucky University men’s basketball game in December. 

Wolfzorn putting

The on-court putting contest, which is sponsored by Barleycorn’s, gives a randomly selected fan the chance to make a 94-foot putt to score a new ride.

After Wolfzorn was randomly selected at the game, he hit an impressive, fast-moving putt that flew across the BB&T Arena hardwood and through a template placed on the farside of the court.  

“The hardwood is so much faster than an actual green, so everything must be in perfect alignment to sink it,” said Joe Heil, Barleycorn’s vice president of operations and longtime NKU Norse basketball sponsor. “This putt had the speed and the accuracy. It was thrilling to watch!”  

This was the second winner for NKU and Barleycorn’s insured by Odds On Promotions. Michael Meier of Edgewood, Kentucky won $5,000 for a 94-footer in February of 2020.
