Easy Odds Review: $11 pass-up cash gifting scheme
There is no information on the Easy Odds website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The Easy Odds website domain (“easyodds.biz”) was first registered on March 26th, 2012. The domain registration details were last updated on March 20th, 2016.
Sherm Mason is listed as the Easy Odds domain owner, with an address in the US state of Arkansas also provided.
Sherm Mason (aka Optimus Dale) first popped up on BehindMLM’s radar as the admin of Magnetic Builder.
Magnetic Builder was a $29.95 recruitment scheme launched in 2011.
In 2015 Mason (right), launched at least five known dubious schemes:
- Paradise Payments (February 2015) – a $2 to $1000 cash gifting scheme
- Magnetic Gratitude (April 2015) – a $580 matrix-based Ponzi scheme
- Summer Fun Matrix (July 2015) – a $22 three-tier Ponzi scheme and
- 3×9 Millionaire Machine (September 2015) – a $3 in, $435 million dollars out Ponzi scheme
- Instant Pay Christmas (November 2015) – a $5 to $800 cash gifting scheme
In 2016 Mason doubled down on his efforts and launched Elite Pay Alliance (matrix-based cash gifting), 5 Dolla Money Lines (pass-up chain-recruitment), Adstraordinary (matrix-based cash gifting) and Cash Rally GPS (Ponzi cycler).
Cash Rally GPS was launched around September. Alexa traffic estimates for the Cash Rally GPS website reveal the opportunity had collapsed by early December.
This has likely prompted Sherm Mason to launch Easy Odds.

The Easy Odds Product Line
Easy Odds has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Easy Odds affiliate membership itself.
Bundled with Easy Odds affiliate membership are ad credits, which can be used to display advertising on the Easy Odds website.
The Easy Odds Compensation Plan
The Easy Odds compensation plan sees affiliates pay a $13.50 fee and get paid to recruit others who do the same.
$11 out of every $13.50 fee paid is paid by a newly recruited Easy Odds affiliate to an existing one.
An Easy Odds affiliate is paid $11 for every odd-numbered affiliate they recruit (1st, 3rd, 5th etc.).
Even numbered affiliates (and the attached $11 recruitment commission) are passed up to the affiliate who recruited them.
In turn, kept odd-numbered affiliates must also pass up their even-numbered affiliates.
A $5.50 matching bonus is paid on even-numbered recruited affiliates passed up.
This continues down infinite levels of recruitment, with even-numbered recruited affiliates always passed up.
The Easy Odds compensation plan material does mention larger payments, however only $11, $22, $88, 320 and $5000 payment levels are disclosed.
Joining Easy Odds
Easy Odds affiliate membership costs $13.50.
The Easy Odds compensation plan suggests full participation in the income opportunity costs over $5000:
You may purchase larger Ad Packs and they too, are a One-time product purchase.
Affiliates paying affiliates in MLM is cash gifting, and that’s pretty much all that’s going on Easy Odds.
You sign up, pay your fee to someone who joined before you and then proceed to steal money from people who joined after you.
The additional payment tiers are just an excuse to keep funds rolling up, with the flow of money identical to the $11 gifting level.
Sherm Mason is positioned at the top of the pass-up chain, guaranteeing he is paid more than any other Easy Odds affiliate.
Once new affiliate recruitment dies down, Easy Odds will collapse and result in a loss for the majority of participants.
Q: Can I get a Refund?
A: No Refunds. Period. Due to the nature of our business model.
Mason’s 2016 scams lasted only a few months each if that, with 2017 not shaping up to be any different.
