First Time Fan Wins Super Bowl Pool as 99% of Fans Score Tickets

The 11th annual Way Cool Super Ticket Pool generated more than $850 worth of free tickets for SecondTicket fans, including $175 to the pool champion, as the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New England Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII.

Congratulations to first time participant clubs57, of Ohio, who correctly picked the first team to score (PHI), first scoring play (FG), and one team's final score (NE, 33). Importantly, he was also among the 30% of fans who picked the underdog Eagles to win, which triggered a multiplier of his base points that vaulted him to the pool's $161 First Prize. Those ticket credits never expire, and he won an additional $14 that are valid until August 31, 2018.

How Fans Fared in the Pursuit of the $500 Free Ticket Bonus

  1. 65.2% of fans survived the coin toss
  2. 25% were still alive by picking Philadelphia to score first
  3. 7% also survived the first scoring play of a field goal
  4. One fan, midnight4twenty, also correctly predicted the minute of the first scoring play (8m). Unfortunately for him, he missed on the final score, envisioning a lower scoring game and a Patriots victory.

16 fans correctly predicted three prop bet elements, and four of them - becleehey, Rozman, Satterfield7931 and Kenny Powers - finished in the top 10. The final score is the most difficult prediction, and three other fans - CubFan611, all-time pool leader Huber, and jodstr0317 - also predicted New England's 33 points, but in a winning effort, and none of them picked any element of the first scoring play correctly.

New & Improved Ticket Credits and New Bonus Prizes
99% of participating fans won a total of $854, for an average of $5 per fan, and 41% won at least $5. Those are more valuable than last year's credits because they no longer include minimum purchase requirements. The cumulative amount won in the 11 year history of the pool is now $15,833.

Clubs57 also takes the early lead in The 2018 Mega Pool, and he and the other top five fans are eligible to receive free 10 tokens from Mega Pool partner Firefan. If you are one of those fans, we'll be in contact with you separately. If a fan declines tokens, they become available to the next fan(s) on the leaderboard.

Congratulations to all of our winners! Any credits won are immediately available for redemption toward any sport, concert or theater tickets in our unique marketplace.

Your next chance to win even more is the Bracket Challenge Ticket Jam in March. Hope to see you there!
