13-Inning Drama Sees Stash Roll to $120k in August

What a great month we saw with July. Typically, July is the slowest month on Streak for the Cash, but with the World Cup final and plenty of great streaks, we were treated to a nice remedy to the "Dog Days" of Summer. We may have had 17 streaks of W20 or greater, but all eyes were fixed on a lone W24 on the final night of July. Jonathan H. of Fitzgerald, GA was a single win from taking home $100,000 (he had already locked up the $20,000 Longest Streak). Many waited throughout the final day to see what Jonathan would pick, and when 7 pm ET rolled around, we all knew. He had selected the Orioles to defeat the Angels for all the marbles. It was a pick that made sense for him, seeing as he was 17-3 in MLB picks for July heading into it. The game was scoreless for the regular 9 Innings or play, so extra innings would decide whether or not the big bucks would be handed out in July. Baltimore threatened a couple of times, but in the Top of the 13th Inning, Albert Pujols singled in the only run of the game, and thus, ended the great streak of W24. It was an exciting finish to the month, and now, all of you have a chance to play for $120,000 in August! Congrats to Jonathan and everyone who put together great streaks in July.

The "Most Wins" competition came down to the final day as usual, but this time, each prop on the final day eliminated at least one entry with its result. Our eventual winner was Peter S. of Brookfield, WI, who reeled off 130 wins. The next closest entry finished with 128 wins, so the $10,000 was wrapped up with a couple of picks to go. Congrats to Peter a well-played month.

Best of luck in August to everyone and remember, a year-high $120,000 is up for grabs this month! Each of our winner's got on a hot streak to win their large prize, so why not you? Just remember...it only takes one time to get lucky! Good luck!
