Anyone reading this article probably picked the Chargers at home against the Broncos last week in Survivor Pools, or perhaps the Rams to beat the Buccaneers the week before. Don’t stress it: NFL upsets happen all the time and people have been getting kicked out of pools steadily since Week 1. The good news is now there’s an opportunity to hop right back into the action and take another shot at outlasting the competition.
This latest contest comes courtesy of MyBookie Sportsbook & Casino for U.S. players who decided to open up a second Survivor Pool to members and are even guaranteeing prize money. This means no matter how many people join, the winner(s) will definitely receive a huge cash windfall.
It’s called the MyBookie $50k Survivor Pool and it’s only open until the end of NFL 2019 Week 6 so act fast if interested. Rules are standard and will be immediately recognizable to all: pick one team each week to win and if they do, you advance, if they lose, you’re out. Teams can only be picked once and whoever is left standing at the end scoops up the loot, or if multiple entries make it to Week 17 or all lose together, the $50,000 is split up evenly between them.
Only two elements require clarification: if a selected squad ties it’s considered a loss and if a game is postponed for any reason and not played before the following Wednesday, both teams are graded as losers. These rules are fair and commonly found in most online NFL Survivor Pools so no one should be shocked or offended by them.
The best part of this contest is it’s absolutely free to enter and won’t cost a dime. The only stipulation is that at least one deposit must be made beforehand and yes, it’s possible to go sign up right now and fund accounts to qualify. Cutoff time is obviously right before Monday Night Football and there are no “auto-picks” if nothing’s locked in by then, so make sure to get everything sorted out before kickoff.
Good luck with this Survivor Pool and remember: putting your “survivor life” on Philip Rivers and the Chargers is always a dangerous move…
