Vegas casinos ready for Monday Night NFL FootballSeptember 04, 2012 3:00 AM by H. Scot Krause
With football getting underway this week we’ll look at some great offers, “cheap style!”
You really can’t beat making a small wager (I’ll leave the betting advice to the expert GT sports writers!) that lasts 3-4 hours while enjoying cheap food, beer and drink specials and a chance for some prize giveaways and contests to boot!
This is one of the most popular hangouts for Monday Night Football. Every Monday beginning Sept. 10, for the games will be shown on giant movie theater size screens with weekly prizes from the “96 Bottles of Miller Beer on the Wall” throughout the party given away by the beautiful “Miller Girls.”
The doors open at 4:30 p.m. for 5:30 p.m. game time. (Exception: doors open at 3 p.m. on Sept. 10 for the double header.) Admission is free for all “B-Connected” members but you must swipe card at the door for admission. You will also receive one drawing ticket for prizes and one free draft beer coupon.
All drawing entries are collected throughout season for chance to win prizes at the season finale Grand Prize Drawings to be given away during the Dec. 22 game. The Grand Prize is a $1,000 gift card and four additional winners will each take home a $500 gift card. KKLZ 96.3 and Miller Lite Beer co-sponsor the parties.
The PBR Rock Bar & Grill inside Miracle Mile Shops will offer drink specials to kick off every college and professional game this football season.
