Rampart Casino is your home for March Mania! Check out sports betting tips from Rampart Casino’s Race & Sports Book Manager, Duane Colucci. To start, Colucci says “the Bracket consists of the 64 best college basketball teams in the country. Do not be scared of large point spreads, several of these teams have not faced each other during the course of the regular season and anything is possible when facing a new team you are not familiar with.” His second tip is “Always do your homework, check who earned automatic bids by winning their conference tournaments as well as the top 25 team rankings which is updated weekly.”
The Race & Sports Book at the Rampart Casino is hosting a Book Bracket Buster Drawings from March 17-20. Players will receive $100 in Free Slot Play every time an underdog beats a higher ranked team in the college basketball tournaments. Ranks are based on Seed and not betting line. Guests can earn entries for every $20 wagered and there is a maximum of 10 entries per window. Entries must be earned on day of the event only. Drawing barrels will be empties at the end of game.
Guests who want to play from the comfort of home can participate in college basketball drawings at www.RampartCasino.com through Engaged Nation. Lucky basketball fans can win up to $1 million with weekly leaderboards on weeks one and two, participate in the Million Dollar Leaderboard for $3,000 cash prizes, and try their basketball pick skills in the weekly Sunday drawing at 5:15 p.m. for a prize of $10,000 cash.
