9/29/12 – Football Season Gives Players More Opportunities to Win Big at Casino Queen

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill., August 29, 2012… SEVENS Sports Lounge and nightclub, located in the Casino Queen, is preparing to be the top spot to watch football during the upcoming season. Patrons interested in rooting on their favorite NFL teams have the chance to a share of $100,000 in Royal Free Play to put into their favorite machines at the Home of the Loosest Slots, while enjoying all the grid iron action on Sundays, Mondays and Thursday’s all season long.

“With Thursday night football in the line-up this season, fans now have three great opportunities each week to have the ultimate sports viewing experience at SEVENS, while putting their predictions to the test”, said Jeff Watson, general manager of the Casino Queen. “SEVENS is the perfect spot for fans to be in a fun atmosphere, cheer on their NFL picks, enjoy great specials on delicious food and beverages and have the chance to turn their favorite teams’ victories into big wins for themselves this season.”

The sports lounge features a 14-foot-wide by 8-foot-tall retractable screen, four 70” HD LED flat screen TVs and a video wall consisting of four 46-inch flat screens tiled together to form one large screen. On days when there are several games taking place, the video wall can be used to show one game while the big retractable screen can display another, which is any sports fans dream come true.  The atmosphere is enhanced even more by the game-day food and beverage specials that will ensure even the hungriest fans can fill up for less. Among the deals awaiting patrons are $1 hotdogs and brats, $4 10” pepperoni pizza and $ .50 cent hot wings, all of which can be washed down with $1 Budweiser or Bud Light drafts, $4 pitchers, or 100 oz towers of the same for just $10.95 for those up for the challenge.

In order to win big, participants will pick the winners of the regular season games each week, with the first pick being free. Weekly winners will receive up to $1,000 in Royal Free Play and the top seven will win their share of $3,000 in Royal Free Play each week. The top 20 participants over the course of the season will win their share of $50,000 in Royal Free Play with the top prize winner receiving $25,000 in Royal Free Play.

All picks must be made on-site at the Casino Queen, Tuesday through Saturday of each week, with the first picks due September 4 and specials beginning on September 9. All prizes must be claimed during the week the games were played.  See the Queen’s Club inside the casino for more information.
