    Default FTR GMML SUPERBOWL SQUARES 2015, $5 / Square [+ Win FTR GEAR!]


    Welcome to the third annual FTR GMML Paid Superbowl Square league, bitches. We'll be running this the same as last year, but with a smaller buy-in.

    - $5 per square, 1 square minimum.
    - Buy-in due the day BEFORE the Superbowl (Jan 31)
    - You can buy up to 10 squares ($50)
    - Can escrow via PokerStars, or Paypal
    - Anyone can play, this means you

    If you want to play, reply saying you are IN. This will put you on the list. However you will not be confirmed until you send your money. Once your money is sent, we will confirm and bold you on the list. You are now officially a cool kid.

    To Play:

    1) Reply saying you're in and how many squares (if you don't say an amount you will default to 2 for $10).
    2) Ship $5-$50 via one of the below methods:

    PokerStars: dhubermex (Mexico City, MX)
    PayPal: givememyleg@gmail.com [NOTE: If you send money via Paypal, make sure you select "Send money to friends and family" to avoid fees, yo. This should be fee free for both of us.]

    3) Tell us you shipped the money, we will confirm and update the list.

    NOTE: If I don't have your money in by midnight on January 31 your squares will be forfeited.


    MAKE SURE YOU TELL US WHO THE HELL YOU ARE.

    If your forum name is bigred you need to let us know what your Stars username is, or the e-mail you sent money via Paypal. If you don't want this information public, you can PM me.

    Details and How to Win

    Each square costs $5. To participate you must purchase a minimum of 1 for $5, and can purchase up to 10 for $50. This will make the total prize pool $500.

    Once all 100 squares are purchased, the final list will be placed in random order. Your name will appear on this list for as many squares as you purchased.

    Example

    Pascal
    givememyleg
    givememyleg
    a500lbgorilla
    bigred
    etc.

    We will then use http://www.random.org/sequences/ to assign each name a number.

    Example

    81 Pascal
    64 givememyleg
    52 givememyleg
    55 a500lbgorilla
    43 bigred
    etc.

    This number will be your square on the grid.

    The numbers along the x and y axis of the grid will also be randomly selected using http://www.random.org/sequences/ by SOMEONE OTHER THAN ME so yal don't think I'm cheating.

    So we will end up with something like below:


    (Note this is not the official grid)

    So based on this example, the numbers we would have are

    Example

    Pascal: 1,3
    givememyleg 2,2
    givememyleg 5,4
    a500lbgorilla 2,0
    bigred 9,8

    If the end of the first quarter, the score is 21-3, Pascal would win that quarter with 1,3.

    Prizes

    If your numbers match the ending number of each team, you will win

    1st Quarter:$62.50 (12.50% of prize pool)
    2nd Quarter: $125 (25%)
    3rd Quarter: $62.50 (12.50%)
    4th Quarter: $250 (50%)

    BONUS PRIZES

    The winner of each quarter also wins a free FTR Shirt!

    Winners

    If you win, we can discuss a method that is most convenient for you and the escrow. Since there may be shuffling issues (money spread across Stars and Paypal), it may take a few days after the Superbowl to receive your coin. You will be contacted via PM.

    If We Don't Sell Out

    Obviously the prize pool will be less depending on how many squares were sold. For example, let's say we sell 60 squares, that leaves 40 remaining, for a prize pool of $300. Prizes would then be:

    Q1: $37.50
    Q2: $75
    Q3: $37.50
    Q4: $150

    The 40 squares that are leftover will be randomly given out in a lottery. However many squares you purchased is how many entries you will have in the lottery.

    So there are still 45 squares left and we only have 2.5 days to sell them. We need your help, yes you. Buy some squares and tell your friends, we want to sell this out!
  32. #32
    Okay, a little more than one day. It seems quite likely we will not sell this out. I'll do a lottery for any remaining squares Sunday afternoon before the superbowl. Let's give it one last push.

    A gambling website is having trouble selling out a $5 board league. I am disappoint.

    Why did you randomise the numbers on the table? The only point I can see to that is making it hard to read.

    We like a challenge here at FTR. If you don't like it, you can get out.

    I guess it isn't really necessary but it's done to increase randomness and decrease any accusation of cheating or rigging the board. I randomize the board while at the same time someone uninvested randomizes the numbers. Plus this is how they do it on 2p2 so I just copied them.
