It's been in the news recently that a 11 yr old boy won a $50,000 prize after making a 89 foot hockey shot.  They refused to pay him because the raffle ticket was bought by his brother and not by him.  What scammers!

Own Employees say STAY AWAY from this company

AUTHOR: Mr American Heart Assoc - (USA)

POSTED: Saturday, October 31, 2015

This company has continually taken advantage of the publics lack of know how and screwed up contest after contest and have even been warned by former employees to stay away from this company. Latest is a $1 million rip off of a lady in Oregon. They also have ripped off people in New York Arizona for $1 Million dollars.  Myself I was only taken for $500 and was promised some signage and promotional material that could not get to me on time. BUT my time is also money and that is priceless that they wasted. RUN AWAY from these blowhards and thier associates (one in the same) Hole in One International Mark Gilmartin Carlos Concha

What a great idea, give him the prize anyway...

AUTHOR: Ken - (USA)

POSTED: Friday, September 09, 2011

why would anyone want to set an example for the 11 year olds and make them play by the rules. Your plan is way better, teach them that deception and fraud is just something that happens in life. Hey, we learn from our "little" mistakes, right?

Rules are rules...

AUTHOR: K. Dominguez - (United States of America)

POSTED: Friday, September 09, 2011

As an individual who used to work in the insurance industry, I would just like to point out that Odds On Promotions did not 'rip off' the twins who did not make the hockey shot; in fact, the father is the one at fault since he knew what he was doing by sending the wrong kid to try and make the shot in the first place.

Insurance companies have strict policies and guidelines as to who is eligible to win the contest.   If any of you watched the Today Show when they were airing the information about the promotion, you would have seen with your own eyes that it stated on the contract that whoever's name is drawn via raffle MUST be the one to take the shot.  No one is trying to rip off any little kids here... rules are rules.  It's policy.

Odds On Promotions also made a generous donation of $20,000 to Minnesota Youth Hockey.  I think it was a win/win/win situation in the end: eventual honesty, the kids learned a lesson and now hundreds of children in Minnesota will have money for hockey gear in order to play.

I, for one, think Odds On Promotions did the right thing... and if I -- or anyone I know -- ever have a need to run a contest or promotion, they will receive my/their business.  I don't know of any other insurance company who would have been that generous ($20K donation).  Kudos to you, Odds On Promotions!

Good Company

AUTHOR: Chris A. - (United States of America)

Please read the following article:

These chldren are not being robbed. They simply did not follow the rules and even at 11 years old the rules have to be followed. We cannot dismiss that they did not tell the truth from the begining.  We should be focusing on the boys having a great time, making an amazing shot and the company though it could not pay the claim to the boys for reasons that are clear, still DONATING money to an organization in their area in the boys' names that so many children will benefit from. The boys are still also receiving a large amount of media as well as scholarships to a hockey camp.  This is not a large corporation stealing from these children.  The family is not upset and the boys are still receiving a benefit from the amazing shot. The reality of the situation is that they are two separate people. So, when ones name was called and the other made the shot that is clearly a breach of contract. Would the same issue be at hand if had the boys not been identical twins? Would there be an issue of non payout if they looked different and couldnt easily be misconstrued as the other? I think not..

Clearly this is my opinion and I do not expect you to agree however take a step back, think,  This is a small company donating money when in all reality they didnt have to do anything because the rules were broken. Plain and simple.

Now, I have used this company and I can tell you they have a very friendly staff, they are knowledgable and they always provide excellent service. I have not had a winner yet but when I do, I hope they continue to follow the rules of the contract that I sign with them!
