The Golden Nugget Ultimate Football Contest is Game On

It takes a lot of hard work and insight to tackle one of the fastest growing segments of sports betting head on, that being true handicapping of games on spread. Sport contests over the course of the season are a fast growing segment of a sportsbook, allowing lovers of all things football to engage weekly in the elation and nail biting that comes with watching your team dominate. The Golden Nugget knows that football is king and they have continued to innovate and provide a venue to one of the fastest growing contests in Las Vegas – The Ultimate Football Challenge. One of the great new pluses in the Golden Nugget Football Ultimate Challenge 2020 is that our KellyInVegas Proxy service can enter contest selections for you via the Golden Nugget app. This service is not available outside the State of Nevada. The addition of the app has allowed us to push out our window on accepting your submissions, as final pick placement must be in by 10 pm Fridays at the Nugget. Using KellyInVegas makes it possible to get your weekly choices in closer to game time than ever before by being in on time and ready to win.

The Golden Nugget revamped their popular Friday Football Showdown several seasons ago to make it more user and fan friendly, at a lower buy-in so more people could participate over the 17 weeks of play. Buy-in for the Ultimate Football Challenge is only $1,000, paid in cash or Golden Nugget chips. You can utilize the services of a proxy to place your picks each week. KellyInVegas is set up to be able to make your seven weekly game spread choices at the latest available time, unlike any other proxy service in Nevada.  You can use the valuable information you gather over the week, and have your insightful picks to KellyInVegas Proxy Service in time to make cut-off. KellyInVegas makes those plays for you for one reasonable fee, with no shared winnings or commission percentages on your earnings. With 20 winners in the Golden Nugget Ultimate Football Contest, you have a professional proxy service place your picks, and you keep your winnings. That is a win-win by anyone’s estimate.

Golden Nugget Football Contest is Unique

What makes the Golden Nugget Ultimate unique is you have access to parlay on both NCAA and NFL teams. It is the only sports contest in Nevada to offer both pro and college games for your picking pleasure. The format is also a bit unique for sportsbooks in the state, in that you pick seven teams from all National Football League (NFL) and National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (NCAA Div I FBS, excluding first half-lines) each week for the seventeen weeks of the season, ending January 1, 2021. You receive one point for each win and half a point for each tie (push) from your picks. Games start on September 9, 2020, and the team that ends with the most points after end of play January 1, 2021, is declared the winner.

A participant can have up to three entries or “teams” in the Golden Nugget contest, each with an entry price of $1,000 cash or Golden Nugget chips (no credit cards accepted). You can name your team or just use your real name.  Note that if you have multiple teams with the same name, they will be designated via -1, -2, -3 per Nugget policy.

KellyInVegas is Your Football Contest Proxy – Here’s Why

The Golden Nugget does require, as do all sportsbook venues in Nevada, that you visit in person for your initial registration and have your proxypresent at that time. You do not have to be a Nevada resident to participate, but you do have to come in person for the initial registration, and be 21 years of age to participate. (See the full rules for the Golden Nugget Ultimate Football Contest at their site for participant restrictions.)

With most companies, you have to come to a general registration with a throng of people and proxies waiting.  Our service is different.  KellyInVegas has a convenient online booking process to set up those appointments, and have your file ready to go. Your time is best spent watching the game or enjoying the rest of your visit to the Golden Nugget Las Vegas when you come to town, and not standing in a cattle call registration process. Click below to sign up for your scheduled appointment time and your personal KellyInVegas proxy will meet you at the Golden Nugget to sign up for the season. Sign-ups for the 2020 contest close Tuesday, September 8, 2020, at 10 p.m. PDT.
