Registration is now open for the 2017-18 edition of Station Casinos’ $750,000 Gridiron Glory Football Contest. It’s a free, interactive pro-football contest that utilizes the Boarding Pass Rewards kiosk to track play and gives guests the opportunity to include picks from Thursday games. The contest continues into the playoffs and championship game.
You can register for one free entry by visiting a Rewards kiosk with your Boarding Pass at any Station Casinos, Palms, Fiestas, Wildfire Gaming properties as well as the Station Casinos-managed El Cortez sportsbook (with a Club Cortez card). Guests make selections (up to 4 weeks at a time) and track progress throughout the life of the contest with a personalized “team helmet” that gains yardage across the football field with each correct pick.
Once achieving a touchdown, players receive instant prizes including Boarding Pass points, free slot play and more each time a touchdown is scored by their “team helmet.” Players advance by making correct weekly team picks made on Thursday, Sunday and Monday NFL games.
Of the $750,000 in total cash and prizes, up to $15,000 will be awarded each week. First place wins $10,000 and an additional $5,000 split among tiebreakers in the event of a tie. Guests can advance to the playoffs by playing all 17 weeks or scoring three touchdowns during the regular season. Playoffs picks include prop bets, over/under and game outcomes for an additional $50,000 in cash prizes.
All post-season contestants will be entered to play in the Big Game, which awards another $50,000 in cash prizes with first place receiving $25,000.
Gridiron Glory is available for play throughout 20 sportsbook and sports lounge locations including all Station Casinos, the Fiestas, Palms, Wildfire Gaming properties and the Station Casinos-managed El Cortez sportsbook. Season standings will be available via both the Rewards Kiosk and online at www.sclv.com/gridironglory.
