The D invites players to enter its $25,000 NASCAR Pick-the-Winner Giveaway. Players can show their support for favorite drivers by earning betting tickets on table games, machines, keno and more, and entering them into a $25,000 prize pool that will be awarded in non-taxable play-til-you-lose promotional chips or free slot play.
There is no limit to the number of tickets players can earn in the casino and each ticket represents a bet, so there is no limit to the number of drivers a participant selects.
When the finish line has been crossed at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and the race results are in, the $25,000 pool will be divided among those who bet on the winning driver. Players who bet on the runners up still have a shot at winning a $1,000 cash consolation prize.
Ten tickets will be drawn from the drums and the $1,000 pool will be divided by those who are present. Bettors can earn individual tickets to play in the $25,000 NASCAR Pick-the-Winner Giveaway in the following ways: every 100 points earned on machines; every $300 buy in on table games; $25 or more win on natural blackjack; $100 or more winning field bet on craps and every $100 wagered in keno. Play now through this Sunday.
