"Nevada is unique in that it is the only state in the United States that has legalized sportsbooks. Though some long-time bettors may try to convince you that they have a sure-fire system for counting cards or handicapping keno balls, sports-betting is the best way to make money in a casino."

With the 2013 football season quickly approaching, William Hill Sports Book is rolling out the state's most diverse menu of football contests. Returning from the 2012 season are the popular Pro Pick'em and College Pick'em contests, with the new Three 'N Out survivor-style pro football contest being added to the lineup.
Combined, the three contests will pay out more than $400,000 this season in guaranteed prize money, with just over $300,000 of it coming in the form of weekly prizes in the Pro and College Pick'em contests.
Each entry into the Pro Pick'em contest costs $25 and each customer is allowed up to 25 entries. Each week, players will pick the winner of all Sunday and Monday pro football games, with a $10,000 weekly prize paid to the entry with most winners. The entry with the most winners at season's end will collect a $25,000 cash prize.
The popular College Pick'em contest - Nevada's only college football handicapping contest - costs $100 to enter, with a maximum of 10 entries allowed. Players choose seven games against the spread from a menu of designated games, with first prize each week paying out $5,000 and the season's top record earning a $10,000 cash reward.
New this season is the Three 'N Out pro football contest - a survivor-style format that was wildly popular with customers during March's men's college basketball tournament. Entry into the Three 'N Out contest costs $25, with up to 5 entries allowed per customer and a guaranteed $50,000 prize pool. Each week, players will pick one side or total from any Thursday, Sunday or Monday pro football game. If the pick wins, the entry advances to the next week. Once an entry has three losses, it is eliminated. With the maximum 5 entries, one player can have 15 lifelines to use during the 17-week season.
All contest entries this season include membership in the William Hill Rewards Club, which earns players special offers throughout the year, plus the ability to earn comps and free bets with their race and sports wagers. The deadline to enter and qualify for season prizes in all contests is Saturday, September 7. Entries in the College and Pro Pick'em contests can be purchased after that date, but those entries will only qualify for weekly contest prizes.
Players may register at the William Hill Sports Book inside the Club Cal Neva during hours of operation. Weekly contest picks may only be submitted at any William Hill full-service locations. The Club Cal Neva IS a full-service location.
