STAMFORD, Conn. – October 8, 2019 – More than $1 million has now been won on NBC Sports Predictor, the highly rated free-to-play sports gaming app. The milestone coincided with the season’s first perfect 70-point score in the popular new football game Sunday Night 7, which awards $100,000 in guaranteed cash prizes to top-scoring fans each contest.
‘Maggie19’ – a Vikings fan from Minnesota – answered all seven questions correctly in last Sunday’s contest to win the $50,000 first-place prize. Overall, 25 fans have each now won $10,000 or more on the Predictor app, and over 80,000 people have won cash prizes.
