Midnight Madness Basketball Contest: Half Court Shot For FREE Tuition

basketball contest - half court shotWant to add some serious sizzle to your Midnight Madness?  In the words of Linda Thomson, Sports Promotions Specialist with Odds On Promotions,

All it takes is one basketball contest… catered towards your own student body!

On the specified promotion date at this East Coast university, one lucky student selected via t-shirt toss was given the opportunity to make a basket from the half court line.  If the lucky student was able to make the half court shot, they would have received a year’s worth of FREE tuition, valued at over $45,000… and paid for by Odds On Promotions, of course!

Feel free to check out the promotional video that the students put together for the basketball promotion below, then give Odds On Promotions a call today at 888-827-2249 or email us for a free, no-obligation quote on a basketball contest of your own!

Looking for a promotion for a different sport?  No problem!  Odds On has a variety of unique sports promotions to choose from!  Take a look for yourself!

Furniture Promotions Can Also Be Basketball Promotions!

Are you a furniture store looking for fun and exciting sales promotion? What if I told you that you could hold your next upcoming promotion in your own parking lot?  That’s right — just take notes from this California-based furniture store who reached out to me, looking to insure a basketball half-court shot contest on their own turf!

Each day during the furniture store’s two-day sales promotion, a lucky customer was selected to take a half-court shot in the store’s parking lot for a chance to win a brand new outdoor kitchen valued at $10,000, paid for by Odds On!  What’s more?  If both customers ended up making the shot, they both would have been awarded $10,000, making it a $20,000 promotion!  Insuring for multiple winners is always a great idea — not only will it end up costing you less in the end, you’ll never have to end a promotion early, should more than one contestant end up winning — and trust us, despite what the odds of that may seem like, a half-court shot happens.

Of course, if basketball promotions can also be furniture promotions, what else could be insured at your store location?  Whether you’re wanting to insure a different kind of sports promotion (an indoor or outdoor bowling contest or golf putting contest, for example) or even a skills-based promotion such as a paper airplane toss, we can insure it

Rewarding TV Promotions? How About The Dollar Bill Game!

TV Promotions - Dollar Bill GameLooking for some fresh new TV promotions?  Need to boost your share?  Then check out this Dollar Bill Game promotion Odds On insured for a television station client based out of Kentucky.

Here’s how the promotion worked: Prior to the promotional period, Odds On Promotions placed one-dollar bills into circulation in the TV station’s broadcast area.

Then, every weekday during the month-long promotional period, the serial number on one of the dollar bills distributed was announced on the 5:30pm news.  If a viewer happened to have the dollar bill which exactly matched the serial number displayed on the television screen, they had fifteen minutes to call in and claim their prize – $10,000 cash, paid for by Odds On Promotions!  (Watch the video below).

The promotion ‘finale’ occurred on the last evening of the promotion – this time, the dollar bill’s serial number – which was displayed on the television screen –  would be worth $100,000, if a viewer happened to have an exact match!

This promotion offers multiple chances to tune in and win thousands, which is why I’m a big fan of the Dollar Bill Game.  While unfortunately, no one happened to have one of the winning dollar bills, the station drove tune in by giving viewers the chance to win big!

Ready to find out how Odds On’s TV promotions can drive results for your station? Have any unique TV promotion idea? Chances are we can help you add a giant insured prize that will attract attention and increase tune in!  Give us a call today at 888-827-2249 for a free, no-obligation quote, or feel free to browse through all of the other TV promotions we have to offer.   You can also email us with any questions.

Trade Show Promotion: $50,000 Deluxe Zoom Ball

trade show promotion - zoom ballNot able to attract as many attendees to your trade show booth as you’d like?  Wondering what you can do to amplify the “Wow, what’s going on over there?” factor or make your pre-show mailer even more enticing?   

Odds On Promotions teams up with a variety of clients who run booths at trade shows… including a chemical company in Michigan who recently attended a liquid waste, sewer and drain cleaning-based trade show. 

trade show promotion - zoom ballDuring the trade show event, the chemical company ran Odds On’s Deluxe Zoom Ball promotion, which managed to catch attendees’ eyes and pique a lot of interest.  Here’s why: All weekend long, each attendee that visited the client’s booth got the chance to win a generous grand prize!

All attendees had to do was was press the magical red button on the Zoom Ball machine with the goal of collecting six orange-colored balls into the machine’s “Zoom Zone.”  If they did, they would have scored $50,000, compliments of Odds On Promotions!

What better way to attract a crowd than to offer an attention-grabbing prize?  Zoom Ball is just one of the many  trade show promotions we have available to our clients; however, the combination of the colorful LED lights and flying balls, makes the Zoom Ball impossible to miss!

Invited Guest Casino Promotion: $25K Lucky Envelopes Contest!

invited guest casino promotionLooking for a great promotion to insure during an invited guest promotion at your casino property, which will increase play and traffic?  Evelyn Golding, Southeast Business Development Manager with Odds On Promotions, is here to tell you about an invited guest casino promotion from a property in the Southern U.S., which recently held a Lucky Envelopes contest worth some major moolah!

VIP Lucky Envelopes Promotion

On the specified promotion date, a total of 2,250 invited guests (Player’s Club Members) received a chance to reach into the casino’s “prize barrel” and grab one of Odds On’s Lucky Envelopes, which contained a free slot play amount ranging from $5-$500.  Among all of the envelopes were five special “Looney Cash” envelopes, each of which contained a special insert.

The five lucky players who got one of the five special inserts, then got the chance to participate in the insured Lucky Envelopes promotion, complete with a custom game board!

Each of the five lucky players got to pick 2 out of 25 envelopes displayed on the game board.  If the two envelopes they chose ended up containing matching grand prize winning symbols, they would have won an instant $25,000… paid for by Odds On Promotions!

I love this particular promotion, especially since the casino opted to up the ante, giving each of the five players who participated in the insured promotion a chance to win the $25,000 grand prize.  Theoretically, if each of the five players were to have chosen the two lucky winning inserts, they each would have received the full prize value, which would have meant a grand total payout of $125,000!
