It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Football season begins and Pennsylvania casinos have promotions and giveaways as serious as their fans are about the Eagles and Steelers.
There’s something for everybody, regardless of location or bankroll. Keep reading to see what promotions are available near you for this new 2023 NFL season.
Win Eagles tickets from Live! Casino Philadelphia
Patrons at Live! Casino Philadelphia can take advantage of two promotions.

Live! Rewards members must earn 100 tier credits to become eligible for the competition. Once eligible, members can swipe their rewards card at a promotional kiosk and make their picks for the week.
The competition takes place at all three Live! casinos, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Maryland. Picks must be in by 11:59 p.m. Saturday night, with the top-10 finishers at each location earning free play.
The Philly Ticket Giveaway is the second promotion, running through Sept. 30. Rewards members earn entries based on accrued tier credits, and drawings will take place at the end of the month to give away tickets to concerts and sporting events in the Philadelphia area. Of course, this includes Eagles games.

$500K NFL Football Pick ‘Em Promo
Want to take a shot at earning big money this fall? Visit Harrah’s Philadelphia and participate in the $500K NFL Football Pick ‘Em Promo.
The contest is open to all Caesars Rewards members and, as the name suggests, requires participants to choose the winners of the week’s NFL games. Picks can be made for upcoming games within a two-day window, from Wednesday up until 15 minutes before Thursday Night Football kicks off.
The top-10 finishers earn prizes each week and must physically return to the property the following Wednesday or Thursday to see if they won. Prizes need to be claimed before kickoff on Thursday night. Prizes are as follows:

Come Sundays, all Caesars Rewards members can qualify for $7 free slot play every time the Eagles score a touchdown during home games. Simply visit a promotional kiosk and swipe your rewards card during the four hours leading up to kickoff, and you’re good to go!
Every Eagles touchdown earns you $7, paid at halftime and after the game. Field goals or any scores by the opposition do not qualify for free play. Still, the Eagles’ high-powered offense will provide plenty of chances at free money for everybody in the building on home game days.
