Fantasy Football at Seneca Casinos

NIAGARA FALLS, SALAMANCA and BUFFALO, N.Y. – Two great offerings – Seneca Casinos and fantasy sports – are now one for the 2013 football season. Every day from September 2 through December 29, guests can head to each of the three Seneca Casino locations in Western New York to play fantasy football for free and win a share of cash and prizes in the $175,000 All-Star Fantasy Football Challenge.

Playing is simple, quick and fun. At all three Seneca Casinos, interactive kiosks will be available in the lobbies and other select areas on property. Using a free Seneca Player’s Club card, guests can play every day at each property starting on Mondays at noon through Sundays at 11 a.m. for the Sunday and Monday football games the following week.

At the end of each week at each property, those among the top five scores will receive cash and Free Slot Play credits ranging from $200 to $1,500. The top three scores for the entire season (consolidated by property) will win $15,000, $7,500 and $5,000, respectively, in cash and Free Slot Play credits.

To play, guests must enter one of 10 player choices for each of eight positions: quarterback, running back #1, running back #2, wide receiver #1, wide receiver #2, tight end, kicker and defense. For any or all of the positions, guests also can select a “quick pick” option for a random player. Points are earned based on a variety of factors, such as touchdowns and yardage gained. The top weekly and ongoing cumulative scores will be posted at approximately 4 p.m. each Tuesday on the kiosks and the Seneca Casinos Facebook page.

Seneca Casinos has partnered with Database Dynamics for the on-site kiosks and overall game logistics. Database Dynamics is an associate member of the National Indian Gaming Association and provides support for fantasy sports games and other interactive promotions at dozens of casinos throughout the United States.

“In 2010, the Fantasy Sports Trade Association estimated that more than 36 million people play some version of ‘fantasy sports,’ and that number grows every year,” said Wayne Schonfeld, chief executive officer, Database Dynamics. “Database Dynamics is proud to team up with Seneca Casinos and to bring their players the best free game available anywhere. The great thing about this promotion is that anyone can win, regardless of whether that person is a novice or a sports fanatic.”
