Station Casinos just announced that they’re adding a new football contest to go along with the two popular contest that have been around for years.
The entry fees are so low that there are a ton of entrants. That makes winning the contests difficult. I played the year I moved to Las Vegas but not since. Maybe that will change this year.
Details on all three contests from Station Casinos in the press release below:
