Record-Breaking Month of March Leads to Big Jackpot

There's really no great place to start when telling the tale of Streak for the Cash March '16. A month where madness is common, we saw both the record longest win streak and most wins fall by a sizeable margin. To put it into perspective on how wild this month was, you needed a W29 to crack the Top-100 leaderboard. The old record of W35 (set in February '16) was smashed, as 17 Streakers beat it. In the end though, two stood atop the final leaderboard with a record W45 streak. Only one could win the $55,000 grand prize though. The scary part was, both entered the final day with the exact same record, so if it finished that way, it would've gone to a random drawing as the third tiebreaker. It didn't come to that though after $$$ Entry lost right away in the morning after India blew what looked to be a sure-fire win in cricket against West Indies. With that loss Josh A.  of St. George, UT held the higher win % (Tiebreaker 1) and didn't have to pick again. He made a pick on the final prop of the month to own the outright longest streak record, but lost. Although it didn't matter because the $55,000 was already clinched.

This month may have been light on the odds, with multiple heavy favorites, but the race was even more intense than normal. Just with higher streaks. It was also one of the few months the heavy favorites didn't fall victim to the upset bug, which usually wipes out the entire leaderboard at least a couple of times each month. So congrats to everyone for a fantastic month to follow!

The "Most Wins" contest down the wire as usual, but the way it was won (or lost you could say) was quite the scene. Harrison C., of Eureka, MO finished with a record 158 wins in March, and managed to out duel Ozmjk Entryafter the latter went on an untimely L6 over the final 24 hours to open the door just enough for Harrison to win by 1. Congrats to Harrison on his $5,000 winnings!

The Streak Stash was won, so it will reset to $10,000. Meaning if you win the month of April with at least a W30, you'll take home a slick $35,000! And, as always if you finished ahead of me, the StreakMaster, in the "Beat The StreakMaster" Group be sure to check your email over the next week here to see if you are 1 of the lucky 20 to be randomly drawn to win an awesome "I Beat The StreakMaster" t-shirt.
