The NFL season is almost here (finally) and for experts in the Garden State, that means time for pick’em contests. One great option is the PlaySugarHouse.com Pick’em Challenge, which will offer at least $100,000 in cash prizes.
The contest offers a grand prize of $30,000 to the top performer after the competition ends. The entry fee is $150 but players can get in at $125 if signed up by Monday, September 7th.
Players will pick straight-up winners each week for the length of the season, starting at 5 PM Tuesday up to Sunday afternoon early kickoff. There doesn’t appear to be a minimum or maximum of picks to be made. Top performers each week will receive $1,000. Also, players will be allowed to make picks every week, unlike others that offer “bye weeks”.
Sugarhouse Sportsbook NFL Contest
In the age of coronavirus, PlaySugarHouse Sportsbook has accounted for a potential gap in games or shortening of the 2020 season. The contest becomes official after the halfway point of the season. If the NFL plays eight weeks or less, all entry fees will be refunded. Players can enter a maximum of 25 teams.
Should the contest gross over $100,000 in entry fees, the pool will grow accordingly. At least 100 players will payout with the current format. Also, the worst-performing player will get $500 as the Biggest Loser for the most missed picks. That’s not a bad booby prize.
Signing up is a breeze. Log in to PlaySugarHouse.com or create an account and click on the Pick’em link. Then get ready for 17 weeks (fingers crossed) of exciting NFL action!
This is a major opportunity for New Jersey players as this is exclusive to the Garden State. Other sites are looking to multi-state pools for bigger contests. However, these also mean fewer entries finish “in the money” and could limit interest. PlaySugarHouse.com is offering a deal for NJ residents which means more of your friends are going against you and less national pros.
