Contact: Katie Silva


RENO, Nev. (TBD) – Pre-season NFL action has officially begun, and the teams at the Peppermill and Western Village Race & Sports Book are busily preparing for the 2015 football season. Football fans can prepare too, by signing up for the Sports Book’s 2015 season-long handicapping contests. By once again offering sports bettors their popular Play the Pros and Last Fan Standing contests, the acclaimed sports book awards $175,000 between the two competitions. 

Play the Pros returns for another season of exciting football fanaticism Sunday, September 13. The handicapping contest awards $8,000 weekly in prizes to the two sports fans who correctly guess every game’s victor – no spreads required. In addition, another $250 in weekly “Just Missed” drawings take place every Tuesday at 12 p.m., rewarding those who are so close, yet so far away. The $10,000 grand prize is awarded to the contestant with the most correctly guessed weekly entries at the end of the season. Entries are just $25 or $100 for five. Week 1 picks must be in by 10 a.m. Sunday, September 13. A list of winners can be found in the Race & Sports Book and on 

Take a chance at winning $25,000 cash with the Last Fan Standing Football Elimination Contest, beginning Thursday, September 10. Each week, players pick the straight-up winner of one game of his or her choosing. Correct picks advance the player in the contest and incorrect guesses result in elimination. Players may select up to 10 games each week at a cost of $25 per guess or five for $100. Players must make a Week 1 pick by Monday, September 14. “Last Fan Standing” takes home $25,000. 

This year, all new Peppermill mobile betting app sign-ups and  existing clients who re-activate their accounts  will receive a free Play the Pros entry with a $200 deposit to the mobile app balance.
