Football fans will love Station Casinos contests this season. They are running three contests related to the football season: Last Man Standing, Great Giveaway and The Challenge. The first two cost only $25 to enter so they will surely attract a lot of sports fans but The Challenge is more for the serious sports bettor since it has a $1,000 entry fee.

The Last Man Standing is a weekly NFL contest that has a huge winner-take-all prize pool totaling at least $50,000. Contestants make a weekly choice against the point spread from games listed on the contest card starting on Tuesdays. The card will have only half-point spreads so no ties to worry about. If the ticket wins one week then it remains in play for the following week; if it loses, it’s out of the game. This contest runs through the NFL season from Sept. 7 to Dec. 28.

The Great Giveaway has the most prizes throughout the contest with weekly prizes throughout the 17 weeks of the contest and then 400 more prizes in the End-of-Contest prize pool. You can only purchase two entries in The Great Giveaway but Station will give you a third entry as a bonus. Probably the best part of this contest is you’re guaranteed to at least break even since you will receive the entry fees back as free slot play if you don’t win a prize.

The Challenge is a contest for serious sports bettors with its $1,000 entry fee (up to 3 entries allowed). Contestants can pick five in the weekly selection of NFL and college games. Each winner counts a one point and each tie counts as a half point. Accumulated point totals determine the winners of the season. Guaranteed payouts range from a minimum of $2,500 to $100,000. Anyone who gets at least 53 points (an average of 67% winner selection) will win a Mercedes Benz C-350.

If these contests appeal to you as much as they do me, check in with any Station Casino for complete details, rules and sign up information. You must be 21 or older to enter any of the contests and have a Station Casino Boarding Pass card.
