Hilton Super Book contest results

Posted By: Rod Thompson

Here are the past Las Vegas Hilton football handicapping contest results. This is open to anyone who pays the entry fee. Each entrant pays a $1,500 entry fee with 90% of the fees being returned to the winners. Only the top 20 places (and ties) are paid. Historically, a 60% winning percentage will finish in the Top Twenty. Each contestant must make five selections each week vs. the pointspread (generally the lines at the Hilton as of noon on Tuesdays). Each winning selection counts 1 point; a push counts 1/2 point; losses are 0 point. The mini contest is the point results of last 4 weeks of the contest with a $10,000 pot. The winner of the contest averages around $150,000.

If any Vegas trolls out there can fill in the gaps, please e-mail me and I will update in the football forum before the season starts. I got most of this from the Hilton sports book counter in 1998. They have print outs of past results, but ask when itís slow or they get a little peeved. Their information was presented slightly different each year, so I had to exclude some data.
