Pigskin Pickem Heats up in Sin City

Las Vegas has begun serving up its usual smorgasbord of football contests and, as always, there are more selections from which to choose than the Bellagio buffet!

The biggie, of course, is the Las Vegas Hilton SuperContest, which has been around for years and proclaims its winner to be the world's best handicapper.

Canadian Tony Ricci of Vancover (the Blue Team) won $303,000 in 2005.

Entry fee is $1,500 and participants pick five NFL games weekly against a contest spread.

Twenty spots are paid.

Last year the competition drew a record 505 entrants.

This year registration began in mid-July and signups have been slow, according to one employee, as a backlash seems to be mounting in protest of the vast number of entrants.

Some of Las Vegas' leading handicappers have gone on record as saying they won't enter the SuperContest this year, though SuperBook officials have predicted a new mark of around 600 will be established.

Word is there are SuperBook supervisory personnel who are pushing to up the entry fee to at least $2,000 in 2007.

Only 20 players had signed up as of Monday, but the Hilton expects a rash of entries to come in the last weekend of August as well as Labor Day Weekend.

The earlybird deadline, which gives players a chance to win $10,000 in a three-week mini-contest at season's end, is 4 p.m. Sept. 1.

The Hilton will get some solid competition on the high end this year from Harrah's, whose resorts are baptizing a new NFL competition, Glory of the Gridiron, which already commands a $2,000 entry fee.

The company will add $50,000 to the pool.

Participating resorts, in addition to Harrah's, are Caesars Palace, Bally's, Paris, the Flamingo, the Rio and Harvey's in Lake Tahoe.

Entry deadline is 2 p.m. Sept. 9.

With the fabled Stardust due for demolition, probably before year's end, there won't be any Stardust Invitational this season after a successful 11-year run.

Pro Cappers Handicapper Marc Lawrence won the final Invitational last year, defeating popular single-name 'capper Fezzik in the seven-game finale.

That void is being filled by Leroy's Money Talks football contest in which each week's two featured players make seven graded plays, college or pro, against Leroy's Friday night line.

The competition debuted last season, with 16 players each anteing $2,500 to participate and Leroy's, which operates more than 60 Silver State books, tossing in $10,000.

Former Las Vegas bookmaker Nick Bogdanovich took the top prize of $40,000 and Pro Cappers Handicapper Bryan Leonard finished as runnerup.

Stakes are doubled this time around.

The buy-in is $5,000 and Leroy's is kicking in another $20,000 for a $100,000 pot.

About three dozen people have expressed interest in securing one of the 16 spots.

An annoucement regarding selection of the field was due last week, but, according to media relatons director Jimmy Vaccaro, has been postponed until certain papers are signed.

"We know who we want, but we have to dot all the i's and cross all the t's," Vaccaro said late last week.

Leroy's also will conduct its $250 per entry college football contest, but main man Vic Salerno has decided against a similar NFL competition.

Rather, Leroy's will continue its pro Pick'em & Win Contest.

Details on all Leroy's contests will be forthcoming.

Station Casinos, which keeps adding new properties to its ever-growing family, will sponsor two contests, including the no-pointspread Great Giveaway, consistently voted the city's best football contest by readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Entries are $25 each and those who purchase two get a third free.

The Great Giveaway offers $1,000,000 in cash prizes, with $510,000 reserved for weekly winners and another $490,000 being awarded at the end of the season.

Weekly prizes will total $30,000, with $10,000 going to the contestant who chooses the most winners and another $5,000 to the one with the most losers.

The first-place winner at the end of the season will collect $100,000, the second-place finisher $50,000 and the third-place finisher $25,000.

The person with the most losses will earn $50,000.

Additionally, $200,000 will be divided by players who "Fiddle in the Middle," or are closest to selecting 50 percent winners and losers.

Partcipating resorts are Palace Station, Boulder Station, Sunset Station, Texas Station, Santa Fe Station, Red Rock Station and Green Valley Ranch.

Stations' $1,000 per entry Challenge competition also will return, with a guaranteed $100,000 top prize.

Players may purchase up to three entries

Contestants also will vie for use of a Mercedes Benz for a year and $12,500 to be awarded the winner of a four-week mini-contest.

An additional $10,000 is up for grabs for earlybird contestants who sign up by Sept. 1 in a "Beat the House Bookmaker" competition.

Coast Casinos, which merged with the Boyd Group earlier this year, will renew its no points Friendly Frank's $1,000,000 Pick the Pros Contest for the 29th straight year.

Entries are $25 apiece and contestants who buy four get a fifth free.

To prize is $100,00, with $50,000 for second, $25,000 for third, $10,000 for fourth and $5,000 for fifth.

The next 300 winners will receive $1,000 each.

An additional $30,000 will be awarded weekly, including $10,000 to the weekly winner.

Those who sign up before 4 p.m. Sept. 7 will be eligible to win $3,000 and other prizes.

Casinos involved include the Gold Coast, Barbary Coast, Suncoast, South Coast, Fremont and Sam's Town.

The Palms will return its Pigskin Payoff Contest, which offers $300,00 in cash prizes.

The partial breakdown is $271,000 in weekly prizes and a $10,000 end-of-season award.

Entries are $25 each and those who buy three by Aug. 20 will receive $10 in slot play.

More contest information will be available in a later story.
