Man Wins $5,000 At Baseball Game 

Syracuse, N.Y. – Talk about a marketing home run – Matthew Werbeck recently won $5,000, courtesy of New York Life Finger Lakes General Office and the Syracuse Mets, and paid for by Odds On Promotions, after the Mets hit back to back homers during a game against the Rochester Redwings.

For the past two seasons, the New York Life Finger Lakes General Office has sponsored a back to back home run inning promotion at Syracuse Mets games. To participate, fans register at the New York Life booth on the concourse prior to the game, and start rooting for those homers!

On June 9th, Jonathan Araúz and Carlos Cortes hit back to back home runs in the sixth, which meant one randomly selected registered fan (Werbeck) would take home the $5,000 prize – and Odds On Promotions would pick up the tab. The promotion will be running until the end of season.

Northern Bottling Turns Half-Time into Show Time 

Minot, N.D. – Twelve-year-old J.J. Franks netted national notoriety when video of his amazing $10,000 4-shot basketball feat went viral on social media in February 2023.

Franks won the big bucks, courtesy of Northern Bottling and paid for by Odds On Promotions, after he successfully made a layup, a free throw, a 3-pointer and a half-court shot in 25 seconds in the Northern Bottling – Gatorade $10,000 Halftime Shootout. While Franks will be putting the majority of his winnings aside for college, he will be keeping a little to spend on himself as well as donating a portion back to his school. 

Watch his amazing shot!

UPDATE: Mountain Mike’s Runs Second On-Field Promotion!

Reno, Nevada – After a successful promotion in 2019, Mountain Mike’s once again gave fans the chance to win $49,000, paid for by Odds On in an on-field football promotion during the 2022-23 season.

To activate their sponsorship as the Official Pizza of the San Francisco 49ers, Mountain Mike’s Pizza gave three randomly selected members of their Mountain Rewards® program  (the Mountain Mike’s mobile app)  a chance to win $49,000, paid for by Odds On Promotions, in a field goal kick contest at Levi’s Stadium at halftime during a game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

To boost in-stadium engagement, brand visibility, and game day excitement, each “kicker” was aligned with a section of the stadium and if the kicker made the field goal, their section would win free pizza. Even if none of the kickers made a field goal, all gameday attendees could receive 49% off a large pizza through the Mountain Rewards® app.     

“From the beginning, the expertise and guidance we received from Odds On Promotions, plus their attention to detail, quick follow up and response times made our Sweepstakes promotion extremely easy to manage and execute.  Our rep was very knowledgeable and friendly and provided excellent support throughout the entire process.” – Rosemary Doody, Director of Marketing, Mountain Mike’s Pizza.
