Free throws at Texas for $$$

Mar 8, 2005 9:06 AM

Texas Station has taken March Madness to a new level.

Starting next Monday, Texas customers making $20 bets will receive a ticket that can lead to a big-screen HDTV or $500. The limit is five tickets per purchase at the window, but the number of visits allowed is unlimited.

Race and sports director Bill Walkowski said that every 10 tickets will earn bettors two free throws at a basketball hoop that will be installed in the book on a permanent basis.

That’s our tease. For more information, check out GT’s March Madness special section next week.
