Plummer won the big cash prize after he netted the “First Place Big Fish” during the Wallongong Game Fishing Club’s 29th Annual Tournament in September. To be eligible to win the prize, the angler had to land the biggest Mako over 250 kg. Plummer, a member of the Lake Macquarie fishing club, did the job, despite some rather nasty weather, when he landed his monster 310 kg shark with 37 kg tackle, fishing on the boat Big Ed.

The Wollongong tournament is a one-day fishing shootout. A total of 17 boats participated.

The conditional rebate, which was insured for up to $1Mil in free six packs, gave fans who registered online the chance to get free beer, if Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods made a hole in one on any par 3 during The Match: Champions for Charity, which took place at The Medalist in Hobe Sound, Florida.

Michelob Ultra engaged viewers prior to the event with a series of fun and entertaining ads and promotional materials, including content that had Peyton Manning in Caddyshack-inspired digital clips.

Half Court Shot Promotion Winner Scores $10K, Impresses the Pros

Storrs, Conn. – Imagine the pressure of taking a half-court shot at half-time during a big UConn Women’s basketball game. Now imagine making that shot in front of not only Rebecca Lobo, but Kobe Bryant too. Well, that’s exactly what half court shot promotion winner Asher Iglesia, a full-time student at UConn, did last March. Check out Iglesia’s prize-winning shot!

Half Court Shot Promotion Winner - Asher Iglesia

Iglesia, who was a track and field athlete in high school, won the $10,000 courtesy of Wells Fargo, and paid for by Odds On Promotions, in a half-court shot contest that took place during the women’s basketball game at Gampel Pavilion between the UConn Huskies and Houston Cougars.  And, this wasn’t just “any” basketball game – it was the game at which UConn retired the jersey of Rebecca Lobo.

Iglesia learned about the promotion, which was designed as a student sports loyalty reward program, via email. The more games a student attended, the more chances they got to be selected for a chance to make the prize-winning shot.  After nailing the shot from half-court, Iglesia put his track and field skills to the test, running around the court in celebration.

Yousef was one of five contestants randomly selected from the student section, via a “lucky seat” drawing, to participate in the half-time contest during a game between the Virginia Tech Hokies and the Furman Paladins.

The Pass, Punt and Kick contest began behind the endzone with all five students passing the football. The three students that threw the ball the furthest, then got the chance to punt the football. After the punt, Yousef, whose punt went the furthest, got the chance to go for the big payday: a shot at making the $10K prize-winning field goal kick.

Odds On’s Sister Company Has Million Dollar Shootout Winner

Congratulations to Million Dollar Shootout winner Ted A., who won a $1,000,000 prize courtesy of The Founders Club, LLC, and paid for by Odds On Promotions’ sister company, Hole In One International.

Ted won the million-dollar prize after he and three other golfers all qualified to participate in a post-outing shootout event. But, what makes this story even more incredible, is that 3 of the 4 participants qualified for the shootout by making a hole in one, when getting closest to the pin would have cut it. Watch the congratulatory winner video.

Million Dollar Shootout Winner - Ted

According to Pine Hills Country Club policy, when a member in the Hole In One Club makes an ace, the country club hosts an outing and a dinner to recognize the acemaker’s achievement.

This past September, during such a recognition outing, Reed Schmidt of The Founders Club, LLC sponsored a million-dollar shootout contest.

Outing participants could qualify for the million dollar shootout by getting closest to the pin on a designated par 3. As it turns out, a truly unbelievable total of three players qualified by making a hole in one, while Tom qualified with closest to the pin.

But, the story doesn’t end there… when it came time for the big bucks, Ted who has a 7.1 handicap, hit another hole in one during the actual shootout event… leading to the 4th ace of the day – and better still – scoring the million dollar prize.
