Station Casinos has caught playoff hockey fever and will offer free bets on the Vegas Golden Knights to win the Stanley Cup.
Payouts could amount to up to $1 million if the team wins it all.
Hours after the completion of the team’s four-game sweep of the Los Angeles Kings in the opening round of the National Hockey League playoffs Tuesday, the locals casino company announced a promotion offering free wagers ranging from $5 to $250 on the team who wins hockey’s most coveted trophy.
Thousands of invited holders of Station’s Boarding Pass loyalty card will receive an offer by mail to swipe their cards Monday at kiosks at seven properties — Palace, Boulder, Texas, Sunset and Santa Fe Station, Green Valley Ranch or Red Rock Resort.
The swipe, which must occur between 12:01 a.m., and 11:59 p.m., Monday, would qualify a guest to get a voucher that can be redeemed for a sports book bet of between $5 and $250 for the Knights to win the championship. A winning ticket could cash for up to $1,000.
Cardholders who don’t receive an invitation, which are based on a patron’s regular level of play, can qualify on Monday by collecting 100 points playing slot machines, video poker and table games at any of the seven properties.
Once a 500-1 long shot to win the 2018 Stanley Cup, the Golden Knights are now the 4-1 co-favorites with the Nashville Predators to claim the NHL championship.
The team was the first first-year team to sweep a playoff series with Tuesday’s 1-0 series-ending victory over the Kings in Los Angeles.
The Knights need to win 12 more games for bettors to cash tickets for winning the Stanley Cup.
