Compete against over 600 participants for a chance to win gift cards and prizes totaling more than $600!
Fall is in the air, and that means football is right around the corner. It also means that it’s time to enter Portland Bolt’s 8th annual NFL Survivor Pool. Whether you’re a hard-core football fan, or a casual follower of the pigskin phenomena, it’s easy to play, and you’ll have an opportunity at winning the grand prize, a $250 Amazon card! Second and third place finishers also receive prizes, and we’ll draw three random contestants to receive a prize package as well. Portland Bolt employees are not eligible for prizes, but are certainly competing for bragging rights. Feel free to give a friendly verbal jab to your sales representative while you watch them be eliminated as you inch closer to the grand prize!
The game couldn’t be simpler to play. Just select one NFL team each week to win, and if that team wins, you advance to the next week. As the season goes on, things get a little more challenging though, because you can only choose each team once. There are no mulligans this season, one strike and you’re out!!
