Delaware Lottery launches $100,000 Football Contest
Delaware casinos to reward East Coast's best pro football handicapper

Wilmington, DE - Think you know your pro football? Make your picks starting Aug. 20 as the Delaware Lottery introduces a new football contest: the Delaware Lottery $100,000 Ultimate Pro Football Challenge. Sports betting players at Delaware Park, Dover Downs, and Harrington Raceway can compete for a chance to win a $50,000 first prize and recognition as the top pro football handicapper on the East Coast.

Football pundits participating in the Delaware Lottery $100,000 Ultimate Pro Football Challenge will pay a one-time entry fee of $250 at any one of the three Casino Sports Books. Players then pick six pro football games each week against the spread through the first 17 weeks of the 2010-2011 pro football season. The player (or players) with the best record at season's end will win the $50,000 top prize. Cash prizes will be available through fifth place and top players at various stages throughout the season will also be eligible for $5,000 prizes. Cash prizes totaling $100,000 will be handed out.

"We are excited to offer this sports betting option to our customers," said Wayne Lemons Director of the Delaware State Lottery. "Sports betting has proven to be very popular at our three Casino Sports Books in Delaware and we think this option will add interest throughout the season."

Complete rules are available on the Delaware Lottery Website at http://delottery.com/games/sports/.

In addition to the $100,000 contest, Delaware's casinos at Delaware Park, Dover Downs and Harrington Raceway offer a variety of parlay sports betting options on pro football games in state-of-the-art gaming facilities. Parlay bets are accepted on a minimum of three pro football games. Parlay cards are generally available in the casinos' Sports Book areas each Wednesday afternoon.
