Grid of 10×10 matrix with 100 total boxes (numbers and teams not assigned until grid is filled or the day of the big game – which ever comes first). $20 puts your name in one box, $40 in two… etc…
As with the regular season pool, 50% of the proceeds will go to Rotary as a fundraising project. Empty (unsold) boxes, if there are any, will be labeled “Rotary”, with winnings on these boxes getting pushed until the next quarter UNLESS, the final game ending prize is a “Rotary” win, in which case the prize will go to Rotary.
Prizes will be based on percentages of dollars (based on boxes sold). Below prize dollar estimates assume sell out of 100 boxes. Actual prizes based on the percentage of proceeds.
Prizes Percentage* Dollars (If Sold Out)
Q1 12.5% $125
Half 25% $250
Q3 12.5% $125
Final+ 50% $500
* Percentage of available prize money (50/50 fundraiser).
+ Final prize based on Final score (if game goes into overtime tie score at end of Q4 is NOT the winner, but FINAL game score is the winner of the prize marked “Final”).
Once the boxes are sold (or the day of the game if any remain unsold) the numbers from “0-9” will be randomly drawn from a hat to complete first the top row, then again for the side row. The NFC team will be listed on the “NFC” axis and the AFC team on the “AFC” axis.
Because this is random, there is absolutely NO SKILL required to play. If you know nothing about football your chances are just as good as John Madden’s.
Winners will be based on who’s box falls at the corresponding field in the matrix whether or not your boxes numbers match the last digit of each teams score at the end of each period of play. The last digit of the score is the number that matters. As an example, if the score at the end of the first quarter is Team A =7 and Team B = 14 then the person with Team A = 7 and Team B = 4 wins the prize for the first quarter (14 ends in 4). If at the end of the half the score is Team A = 17 and Team B = 24 (that person would win again since they still have 7 for team A and 4 for Team B (24 ends in 4 and 17 ends in 7).
|Winning box determined based on last digits of score|
|Pittsburg 7 Seattle 12 —> look-up Pittsburg “7” Seattle “4”|
|Pittsburg 30 Seattle —> look-up Pittsburg “0” Seattle “3”|
|Pittsburg 20 Seattle 30 —> look-up Pittsburg “0” Seattle “0”|
The matrix will be posted online prior to the start of the game and send out the web address so you can see if you win.
