Vigorish-free betting set for Thurs. Sept. 4 at Fiesta

Sep 2, 2008 7:04 PM

By GT Staff | Football fans will find a lot of action out at the Fiesta sports books this season, including unique contests and limited vigorish-free wagering.

New to the Fiestas this year is No Juice wagering, which invites guests for the first time ever to make football bets without having to pay the extra 10 percent (juice or vigorish) should you lose. Guests may wager straight bets only on any college or pro football sides at the two Fiestas on Thursday, Sept. 4 between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Executives at Station Casinos are not ruling out the possibility of offering "No Juice" wagering at other properties during the football season. Wagering limits are $3,000 for pro football sides and $1,000 for college football sides. "No juice" wagering is not valid on first or second half wagers or parlays. Stay tuned for updates.

Football Frenzy

For a seventh year, Fiesta Rancho and Fiesta Henderson are offering their Football Frenzy Contest. The contest is now free to enter and has a limit of one entry per person. A total of $170,000 will be awarded throughout the football season to weekly and year-end winners. All contestants must be at least 21 years of age, present valid ID and be an Amigo Card member.

Sign-ups are permitted after the season begins but registration may not be permitted during peak business levels, from 8-10 a.m. on Sundays.

Contestants will make weekly selections during the NFL’s 17-week regular season and each week the contestants with the most correct selections will walk away with $10,000. If two or more contestants are tied with the same amount of winners, then tiebreaker rules apply. The tiebreaker will be the total score from that Monday Night Football (or Sunday night game if applicable), with the winner being the contestant who comes closest to the final score of that game without going over the total.

The weekly contestant who chooses the most winners will receive $5,000 with 50 of the top winners also receiving cash or prizes.

Last Man Standing

Also available at the Fiesta Rancho and Fiesta Henderson is the $10,000 College Last Man Standing football contest. Contestants will pick one college team against the weekly contest line with the winner receiving a $10,000 minimum guaranteed aggregate prize. Selections will be made against the point spread listed on the weekly contest card and if it is a winning selection, that entry will remain in the contest the following week.

The fee is $25 per entry and contestants may purchase up to four entries and receive a fifth one free. Amigo Card points may not be used for payment of entries. The prize money will be awarded to the last contestant remaining at the end of the regular season. If the weekly selection is a losing selection or a contestant fails to submit a weekly selection, that entry will be declared eliminated. There will be no ties and all games will be half-point spreads.

The weekly contest card will be available in the sports books beginning Sept. 2 and will then be available every Tuesday during the season. Participants must sign up by Sept. 6 to be eligible.

Details and prize redemption information are available at all participating properties.
