Philly’s Casino Kicks Off Fall with More Ways to Win

PHILADELPHIA — Aug. 30, 2013 — SugarHouse Casino is saying goodbye to summer and hello to fall with all things Philly loves—great food, football, live music and winning.

Gaming Promotions

$100K Endless Summer Blow Out – On Sunday, Sept. 1 from noon until midnight, and Monday, Sept. 2 from noon until 8 p.m., guests can win their share of $100K in free play, cash and endless summer prizes. Guests can swipe their Rush Rewards Card at the SugarHouse kiosks each day at 11 a.m.

Jeremiah Trotter’s $150K Pigskin Payout – Back for another season is SugarHouse’s extremely popular football kiosk sweepstakes, “Jeremiah Trotter’s $150K Pigskin Payout.” It starts on Wednesday, Sept. 4, and lasts throughout the regular season. Anyone with a Rush Rewards Card is eligible to play each week and it’s completely free.

Guests can swipe their cards at one of the kiosks at SugarHouse and make their picks of which NFL teams they anticipate winning each week—without having to guess a point spread. There is also a “quick pick” option for football novices, where the computer makes the selections. Cash prizes of $5,000 will be given away weekly for the guests with the most correct picks, and there will even be one random, lucky wildcard winner.

At the end of the season on Jan. 5, 2014, the guest with the most correct picks will win $50,000 cash, and second through fifth place will also earn cash prizes.

$10K “Road to Victory” Sweepstakes – On Monday, Sept. 9, between noon and 8 p.m., guests will be selected every hour to win more than $10,000 in free play, cash and great football prizes. Guests must be playing a slot machine with their Rush Rewards Card to be eligible.

Quarter Million Prize Pyramid – On Saturday, Sept. 28, from 11 a.m.—8 p.m., one winner will be chosen every hour to play the Quarter Million Prize Pyramid game. Selected contestants will “move up” a pyramid of cash by choosing an envelope on each row. If the envelope contains the grand prize symbol, contestants keep playing to the top. The higher the contestant goes, the bigger the odds of winning. The grand prize for making it to the top of the pyramid is $250,000 cash. For those who don’t make it to the top and pick the wrong symbol, they will receive the cash prize associated with their highest level of play.
