Peppermill Reno Hotel Casino pays $24,690 Football Jackpot

Share Article

Philly Steve, a teacher from Reno, won a whopping $24,690 this past weekend in the Pro Football Progressive jackpot at the Peppermill Hotel Casino in Reno, Nevada.

By picking 14 out of 14 on his Progressive Parlay card, Steve took home the largest Progressive jackpot ever at the Peppermill’s Sports Book. Steve played five of the $5 tickets and told the attendant at the sports book desk that he would win that weekend’s big jackpot.

Steve plans to use his winnings to complete his Philadelphia Eagles jersey collection and to organize a Christmas family reunion. The Peppermill’s sports book still has the only Progressive Parlay card in Reno. All it takes to win is to hit 14 out of 14 straight-up NFL winners. If no one picks all 14 winners then a consolation prize of 20% of the amount played that week is paid to the card-holder with the most correct picks.

The Peppermill’s sports book features:

  • NEW! State of the Art - Electronic Wall Boards
  • You can redeem your Sports tickets 24-HOURS A DAY
  • Our Race & Sports Book is centrally located for easy access to everything the Peppermill has to offer
  • At Peppermill Reno we track your play - you earn valuable comps and other rewards
  • We have 74 TV monitors linked to a complete satellite package so you can watch all your favorite games
  • Plus, we have free valet and plenty of well-lighted self parking.

The Peppermill Hotel Casino is the first race and sports book in Reno to offer self-serve wagering. Now guests can place bets on sporting events, futures or horse races from a convenient standup terminal located in the Race Book. The machine, from Computerized Bookmaking Systems, Inc. has a touch screen and is very easy to use. Insert cash or a paper cash voucher and then simply follow the directions by touching the desired boxes on the screen. It will also track the person’s play.

Wagers made from the self-serve machine are no different than bets placed directly at the race and sports book counter. The odds are the same whether a sporting event, a future, or a horse race. People should also not be surprised that when they play with cash, the machine announces that it has to take their photograph. This is a Gaming Control Board requirement for facial recognition, a requisite for its currency control policy. Once a person has been “identified” they proceed to make their wager.

After the bet has been made and a ticket generated, the person can elect to use any left over credits in the machine to make further wagers or simply cash out and receive a voucher that can be used, like cash, at a later time.

Any sports book employee will be glad to assist anybody who wishes to use the self-serve betting terminal for the first time.
