Harrah's unveils progressive parlay card

Aug 27, 2008 8:24 PM

by David Stratton | Football fans love parlay cards, and this season Harrah’s Nevada properties will debut a new parlay card that features a progressive award.

The card is called Pro Pick Progressive and, for $10, gives players a shot at a progressive that starts at $50,000 and continues until hit.

To win, players must correctly pick the winner of all 16 NFL contests. To make it more interesting, half the games require picking the winner against the point spread.

If no one correctly picks all 16 games, the progressive increases.

There is a weekly consolation prize, however, for those who pick the most winners, but fall short of running the table. About $2 of every $10 bet goes into the consolation pool.

In the final week of the NFL season, the progressive will be paid to the player or players with the most winners, whether or not they correctly pick all 16 games.

For further details, check out any of Harrah’s 12 race and sports books, or read next week’s GamingToday, beginning Tuesday, Sept. 2.
