VERNON HILLS, IL -- Incredible Technologies reports that its Golden Tee Golf Daily Contest prize format has been a big hit with players -- and a big moneymaker for machine owners -- since its formal launch last October, which continued the series begun during extensive testing over the previous year and a half.

Every day, patrons can enter and play the daily course as many times as they want, improving their scores and advancing onto the leaderboard. More than $1.5 million in cash prizes have been awarded to thousands of players across North America as the contest has progressed.

On March 31, IT will celebrate the 1,000th consecutive Daily Contest with an extra-special incentive and a $6,000 guaranteed prize pool. The prizes are larger than ever, with first place bagging a whopping $545. The milestone coincides with Golden Tee's fan favorite Freaky Friday courses. Players on Freaky Friday enjoy a selected mix of 18 holes from the entire Golden Tee Live course catalog, making for a unique play experience with all-new scoring possibilities.

This week's course theme, tying into April Fool's Day, pits the player against some of the trickiest holes in Golden Tee, which the company expects will lead to some crazy scores and spectacular YouTube "Great Shot" videos.

"The Daily Contest format generally shows strong player participation and great earnings," said Don Pesceone, vice-president of IT's amusements division. "But Freaky Fridays have taken the format to a whole new level. The unique and creative setups, big prizes and repeatable format are a monster hit with players."

In addition to the 1,000th Daily Contest, this Friday also offers a special Money Shot competition, with the winner capturing the final qualifying spot at the Golden Tee World Championship this May. IT has added an extra $500 to the prize pool, boosting first place to $389.

"Last week's Money Shot had hundreds of players going all out for a shot at World's, with a nice boost for earnings," Pesceone said. "We expect this Friday to be even more incredible."
