Clay C Beats Over 5,000 In Tipico’s Tourney Contest

August 22, 2023

Clay C from Ohio finished ahead of more than 5,000 contestants to win Tipico’s college basketball tournament contest and take the grand prize — bets on Tipico for an entire year!

Clay C of Ohio finished with 32,403 points, followed by dana h (27,882), Andrew T (23,843), Christopher V (18,541) and Andrew B (17,881).

Contestants from Ohio dominated the upper ranks of the standings, holding eight of the the top 12 spots. But the three other states Tipico serves were also represented — dana h from New Jersey in 2nd place, Andrew T from Colorado in third and Nicholas L from Iowa in 13th. Great work all!

The contest was a huge success with Tipico bettors, with 5.371 folks entering for a chance to win $500,000 worth of prizes from Tipico.

“Our March Madness competition was a way for us to test how we allow customers to compete on skill,” said Brian Becker, Vice President of Marketing at Tipico. “We know we have competitive customers and seeing the volume of bets and number of players was really encouraging.

“We plan to do more competitions like this to better engage our customers and reward bettors across the states that we operate.”

Clay C won bets on us for a year and will get a $100 bet credit every week! Runners up and the winner of each state won bets on us for a year and will get a $20 bet credit every week! But the best part is that everyone got prizes just for playing.

Each week you made qualifying wagers (a bet of $20 or more on the tournament) you got a $20 protected bet just for playing.

Here’s how it worked: Qualifying wagers that win earned you points, based on the odds of the bet. The bigger the odds the more points! Plus odds earned you equal to the odds (so +750 earned you 750 points!), winning bets with minus odds under -200 (-110 to -190) earned you 20 points and wins with minus odds greater than -200 didn’t earn you any points. Also, wagers that lost and were cashed out did not score any points.
