The annual $50,000 Last Man Standing college basketball tournament elimination contest is back at Station Casinos’ sportsbooks.
Last Man Standing is a daily contest during the 2017 Men’s College Basketball Tournament. Enter now through March 16 at 9 a.m. Entries cost $25 each, and the purchase of four entries earns a fifth for free.
Players make selections based on a college basketball winner versus the pointspread listed on the daily contest card, which is available in the sportsbook. If it’s a winning selection, that entry will remain alive in the contest. Players who lose a round or fail to submit a daily selection are out of the contest.
Contestant selection days will be March 16-19, March 23-26, April 1 and 3. The opening round games on March 14 and 15 won’t be part of the Last Man Standing Contest. While the minimum prize guarantee is $50,000, the Last Man Standing takes home the entire prize pot, which is likely to be more as it is based on total entries.
Contestants may enter and play at any Station Casinos, Fiesta and Wildfire Gaming sportsbook: Barley’s Casino & Brew Pub, Boulder Station, Fiesta Henderson, Fiesta Rancho, Green Valley Ranch Resort, Palace Station, Red Rock Resort, Santa Fe Station, Sunset Station, Texas Station, Wild Wild West, Wildfire Boulder, Wildfire Rancho, Wildfire Sunset, Wildfire Casino & Lanes and Baldini’s. Contestants entering at El Cortez must play at El Cortez.
The Summerlin resort has announced a new, ongoing promotion where players can earn dinner and a movie. Earn and redeem 2,000 same day points to enjoy a movie and dinner choice at SC Prime Steakhouse & Bar.

You can also earn and redeem 1,000 same day points and receive one buffet (excluding Seafood Buffet) or an entree of choice in The Game.
