Next weekend is the Super Bowl, so we can look forward to a variety of football-related promotions and parties (some by invitation only, others open to every one over 21). Please note that casinos are forbidden by NFL copyright to use the words "Super Bowl" in their advertising, which is why you see a variety of other terms such as "The Big Game."
Terrible's "Football Frenzy" runs from Wednesday through Feb. 1. Players earning 1,000 base points ($1,000 coin-in; no point redemption required) receive a football containing surprise gifts of up to $1,000 cash, free play, comps or gift items. You can earn up to five footballs per day. From Thursday through Feb. 25, Terrible's also is running a "$50,000 Hearts of Cash Giveaway." At 7 p.m., 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Wednesdays, the casino will select 10 winners to select a heart containing $250-$10,000 in cash or free play.
