William Hill rolls out contests for upcoming football season

3 August 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- With the 2016 football season just over a month away, William Hill Sports Book has opened registration for a pair of contests: the popular Pro Pick'em and the all-new College Pick'em.

Back for another season, the Pro Pick'em contest is just $25 to enter and offers $300,000 in cash prizes. For each of the 17 weeks of the Pro Football Regular Season, players will pick the winner of the Sunday and Monday games (Saturday games for Week 16), with a $10,000 weekly cash prize paid to the entry with the most winners. The entry with the most wins at season's end will collect a $20,000 Grand Prize. The contest also offers a $100,000 bonus to the contest's season winner if they finish with 200 or more wins.

New for 2016, the College Pick'em – Nevada's only college football handicapping contest – costs $500 to play, with a maximum of 3 entries allowed. Offering 100% payback, players choose seven games against the spread from a menu of 25 designated weekly games. At the end of the season, the top finisher will collect 70% of the final prize pool and is eligible for an additional $25,000 cash bonus if they finish with 49 wins or more. The entry with the second most wins throughout the season will collect 20% and the entry with the third most wins will collect the remaining 10% of the prize pool.

"Our contests are a reflection of William Hill's commitment to offer the best product to our sports betting customers in Nevada," said William Hill Director of Marketing Michael Grodsky. "The College Pick'em contest was a popular request from our patrons and we look forward to an exciting inaugural season."

The Pro Pick'em contest begins on Sunday, Sept. 11 and lasts through the conclusion of the regular season on Jan. 1. The College Pick'em contest lasts 10 weeks, starting on Friday, Sept. 9 and running through Nov. 12.

The deadline to enter the Pro Pick'em contest is 8 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11. The deadline for the College Pick'em contest is 8 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10. Players may register their entries at any of the full-service William Hill books throughout Nevada. Weekly contest picks can be submitted at any William Hill full-service or kiosk location.
