Las Vegas sports and gaming publication GamingToday has announced the launch of its $1m Pro Football Frenzy online promotion, “the largest free program of its nature this season”.

As the National Football League (NFL) makes its final preparations ahead of Thursday’s Philadelphia Eagles vs Atlanta Falcons curtain raiser, GamingToday pledged a grand prize of $1m to the player who can pick enough winners during the regular season.

The free to play competition is open to players worldwide, and will also award in excess of $6,000 in additional weekly and season long prizes.

Engaged Nation, a sister company of GamingToday, is to power the online gaming portal using its online gamification system ‘Reach’.

Howard Barish, general manager of GamingToday, explained: “This football season promises to be the most exciting one for our paper and readers. Not only can readers enjoy all the action from the most up-to-date football and sports betting information, but they now have a chance to win a million dollars.

“Our goal is simple—offer the most comprehensive news along with fun and rewarding sports-related games and head-to-head competition. It’s the only site that offers this combination of information and activities.”

“There is something for everybody, from playing fun online games to bragging about your football foresight. And, best of all, there’s the chance to win huge cash prizes all season long.

“We really couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our 40th year of operation, than to give our readers a chance to win a million dollars.”

Furthermore, players will also have the chance to participate in a variety of daily activities, earning entries for end of season draws to win prizes that include a Sony PlayStation 4, a 60” 4K Ultra HD TV and a VIP hotel package and big game party at South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa in Las Vegas.
