    They have changed the rules as I recall them from previous years; You had until the week of the Super Bowl as I recall if you did the last games of the season to cash (6 weeks I think was the timeline for winners.....this has changed) Seems to be much more oriented to the local population (which is fine to me.....if I win airfare is secondary to collecting....)

    FYI:


    Week one (1) through eight (8) $20,000 will be awarded each week to the contestant(s) with the highest number of winning selections. Weeks nine (9) through thirteen (13) $30,000 will be awarded each week to the contestant(s) with the highest number of winning selections and weeks fourteen (14) through seventeen (17) $50,000 will be awarded each week to the contestant(s) with the highest number of winning selections. In the case of a tie between 2 people in any one of the weeks from Week one (1) through Week eight (8), the weekly prize pool will be divided equally. In the case of a tie between 2 or 3 people in any one of the weeks from Week nine (9) through thirteen (13), the weekly prize pool will be divided equally. In the case of a tie between 2, 3, 4, or 5 people in any one of the weeks from Week fourteen (14) through Week seventeen (17), the weekly prize pool will be divided equally. In the case of a tie between contestants in all other cases: a. $10,000 will be awarded to one person under the tie-breaker rules in b. and c. below, and the remainder will be divided equally between the remaining winners.
    b. The first tie-breaker for the $10,000 prize: The contestant who comes closest to picking the combined score on that weekend’s selected tie-breaker game will be the winner of the $10,000 prize.
    c. The second tie-breaker for the $10,000 prize:


    Contestants may swipe their B Connected card anytime after 5:00 p.m. each Tuesday to see if any of their entries are a weekly winner If they are a winner of any amount less than $600 and accept the prize at the kiosk, their winning prize will be added to the contestants B Connected account in the form of points which are redeemable for cashback. All payments of $600 or greater will be taken to the sports book for validation (Main Street Station winners can be verified at any sports book). Winnings of $600 or greater will then be cashed at the main casino cashier cage.
    20. Contestant may claim weekly prize winnings anytime after 5:00 p.m., each Tuesday. (Provided that the conditions of rules #21 & #22 have been met.)
    21. All winning tickets will become void if not claimed within fourteen (14) days of the results being posted for that week’s Contest. Winning tickets may be redeemed at Gold Coast, The Orleans, Suncoast, Sam’s Town, Fremont, California and Main Street Station (Main Street Station winners can be verified at any sports book).

    When were living in Vegas we played every week and my wife got all right twice. Unfortunately, so did about 300 others both of those weeks. Her share was around $25 both times. We usually get to Vegas about 3 times during football season and we each play then for that week.
    I get 5 entries and she gets 3, so we just split it 4 & 4.
