In the Monetary category, McLean ended the quarter with $22,400 ahead of Orelue with $15,366 to take the incentive. McCulloch was third with $14,757.

Managing director for Capital Betting and Wagering Limited Egerton Chang is pleased with how the competition has grown over the years.

“This competition is going on for a while now and I am pleased with the progress. It is getting better and better over the years. But it is not only Capital and Wagering Limited, but Capital and Wagering Limited/ Jamaica Observer Tipsters' Competition, and I think that this competition is the best tipsters' competition here in Jamaica, as we are doing far better than any other tipsters' competition,” he said.
