$20,000 in guaranteed prize money up for grabs; $50,000 perfect score bonus
LAS VEGAS (December 2, 2013) – Back this bowl season for a second year is the 20/20 College Bowl Challenge – the first contest of its kind in Nevada – with a guaranteed prize pool of $20,000.
Each entry costs $20, and players will select 20 games from the 35-game bowl season slate, picking the winner against the designated point spread. The contest card will be available at all William Hill books throughout Nevada by the evening of Friday, December 13th, with no limit placed on entries per customer. Entries can be submitted at any time until kickoff of the Armed Forces Bowl at 11:45 a.m. on Monday, December 30th.New this year is the ability to also play the card via the William Hill Mobile Sports app, which allows you to bet on your smartphone device from anywhere in Nevada.
The winner-take-all format will pay out a $20,000 guaranteed grand prize – up from $10,000 last year – to the entry to select the most correct games against the spread. If the total amount of entry fees collected exceeds $20,000, then 80% of the additional entry fees will be added to the grand prize money.
As an added bonus, William Hill is offering a $50,000 bonus if the winner can land a perfect 20-for-20 card.
“Last year, we were the first sports book in Nevada to roll out this contest, and it was wildly popular,” William Hill Director of Trading Nick Bogdanovich said. “Once again, we expect it to be a hot item. It costs just $20 to get almost a month’s worth of action, and the ability to play as many cards as you want gives you multiple opportunities to try and pin down the unpredictability of the bowl season.”The college bowl season officially begins on Saturday, December 21st, with four games, starting at 2 p.m. with the New Mexico Bowl. The last game on the bowl schedule will be the January 6th BCS Championship, played in Pasadena, Calif., between the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the regular season’s final BCS standings.
