  • 3rd Line Super Bowl Pool!

    The 3rd Line Super Bowl pool is up and running in the US dispatch area of the 3rd Line building! If you're interested in testing your luck and seeing if you can come up a big winner, come see Kara or Andrew to purchase your square. Each square is $5 and prizes range from $25 to $200. Super Bowl is Sunday February 5th

    Each square costs $5


    1) One team (AFC) will be represented at the top and the other (NFC) down the side.  

    2) A player may buy as many squares as they like and can pay for.  All money must be paid up front before you choose your square.

    3) The numbers for the squares will be drawn once all of the squares have been filled.  This ensures a level of randomness so that the first people do not get first pick of the numbers.

    4) The last digit in the score will be the one used.  Therefore if the score at the end of the 1st Quarter is NFC 7, AFC 3 the winning square is the square which intersects NFC 7 and AFC 3.  The winning “reverse” score for this quarter would then be AFC 7 NFC 3.  If the score at the end of the 3rd Quarter is NFC 21, AFC 14 the winning square is the square which intersects NFC 1 and AFC 4.  Therefore the “reverse” score would be NFC 4 and AFC 1.

    5) If the game is tied at the end of regulation time, the 4th Quarter winners get their prizes and there will be no prize for the final score at the end of overtime.


    Score at: Winning Square: Reverse:
    End of 1st quarter $50 $25
    Halftime $100 $25
    End of 3rd quarter $50 $25
    End of 4th quarter $200 $25


    *This pool is first come, first serve. So to avoid disappointment, please purchase your square(s) from Andrew or Kara sooner than later!
