Snoqualmie Casino, owned by the Washington tribe, recently announced the launch of the first Las Vegas-style large progressive point spread contest in the Evergreen State.
Stanford Le, Snoqualmie Casino CEO, said:
“Our casino is always looking for new ways to enhance the gaming experience for its guests. The Beat the Spread Pigskin Challenge is a way for our guests to test their football knowledge and compete against others for a really attractive and continually-growing prize pool.”
The Beat the Pigskin Challenge will be available to players in Washington State throughout the 2023 football season.
Beat the Pigskin Challenge runs until Sep. 9
The competition guarantees the overall winner a $100,000 prize, while the winnings can grow higher depending on the total number of contestants. As the casino specified, it does not take a rake, so all the money from the pool will be divided among participants.
Players can set up an account at Snoqualmie Casino’s Sportsbook. With a $1,000 buy-in, each participant can choose up to five picks against the spread each week starting Aug. 29. On its website, the casino notes:
- Correct selections against the point spread will count as two (2) points
- Ties or pushes against the point spread will result in one (1) point
- Incorrect selections against the point spread will result in zero (0) points
The contest continues until the final game of the regular season, no later than Sep. 9, at 7:00 p.m.
Starting Sep. 9, participants will be able to track their rank online. Once the contest reaches 100 participants, the main prize will continue to grow, ultimately paying up to $5,000 in prizes to 40 winners.
Players must be 21 years old. The promotion does not limit the total number of participants who may buy in, only the number of buy-ins per contestant.
Snoqualmie Casino also stated on its website that an early bird drawing is live until Aug. 17. The opportunity allows players to earn up to 25 entries.
Participants can also win field seats and pregame sideline passes. One lucky player will win two tickets and sideline passes to the Seattle football home opener on Sep. 10.

In September 2021, the casino launched Snoqualmie Sportsbook in Washington on the opening day of the NFL season.
