Denny Hope, from Reno, Nevada, is an active player in The Daily Ticket, powered by Tipico Sportsbook, USA TODAY’s daily sports pick’em game. Each day, there are any number of predictive sports trivia games available to be played – for free.

Denny was one of hundreds who took part in the Tipico Sportsbook Big Game Pick Six, which was a four-week challenge where entrants picked against the spread and total around six games during Weeks 15-18.

While his entry came in third place, Denny held out hope that he may be able to land the top prize. As luck would have it, the entrants ahead of him on the leader board were unable to attend, leaving Denny in position to accept the contest’s top prize, including: A trip to Los Angeles, a VIP experience at the NFL Alumni Legends Party and sweet tickets to the Big Game itself. And accept he did, Denny shared with us he couldn’t even sleep the first night because he was so excited.
