Streak Survivor offers players prizes on the way to 25 consecutive correct picks. Nine consecutive picks earn a participant a Covers-branded hat, 13 earn a Covers-branded hoodie, 17 are worth $1,000, and 21 are worth $25,000. The player with the best results each month earns an additional $1,000. The game is free to play and available for all major sports.

King of Covers is also a free to play game, with the winner being whoever accumulates the most units in a prescribed time period. Sample time periods include the NBA regular season and the MLB postseason. The game is separated by sport, so one player cannot bet on a football game and a hockey game in the same league. Each sports league also has its own prizes.

The Ultimate Race contest has not been offered since Feb. 2015, but the site still lists it as an available contest, as of early 2016. The grand prize was a trip to Las Vegas, with the top 50 finishers earning a Covers-branded item or a cash prize.
