Jun 22, 2012 |
The Miami Heat weren’t the only big winners Thursday night.

The conclusion of the NBA Playoffs also awarded skilled Covers Contests users $2,250 in cash prizes and a ton of great Covers Gear in the NBA King of the Hardwood Playoff Contest.

The Grand Prize of $1,000 and a Covers Hoodie went to Nick Imperio – better known as username FBC456 – who finished the NBA postseason with a 99-­55-­1 record (64.29 percent) for 19250 units picking against the spread and total.

"Covers is a fun free contest to play and is even funner when you win,” Imperio told Covers in an email. “After nearly four years of competing, I have finally tasted victory in something."

The second-place prize of $750 went to Mike Olshan from Pennsylvania – AKA deerslayers – who closed the playoffs with a 92-­57-­0 record against the spread and total (61.74 percent) for 14450 units.

“I joined covers about one year ago and I like all the different contest they run,” Olshan said in an email. “Covers has all the information on their website to make these contest fun to play. I will use my winnings to take my family on vacation this year.”

Rounding out the money prizes was third-place finisher nulla, who posted a 99-­63-­2 record (61.11 percent) for 14320 units and takes home $500.

Contestants that finished No. 4 through No. 20 get exclusive Covers Hats.
