Rodeo to include historical exhibits, Whiskerino and Mutton Busting events
The Plaza Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas will again host the Las Vegas Days Rodeo at its outdoor equestrian center, the CORE Arena, on Friday and Saturday, November 10 to 11, starting at 6pm (gates open at 5pm). Sponsored in partnership with the Commission for the Las Vegas Centennial, the event celebrates the history of Las Vegas with the rodeo as well as historical exhibits, a Whiskerino contest and Mutton Busting.
The Las Vegas Days rodeo will feature bull riding, barrel racing, team roping, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, saddle bronc riding, breakaway and bareback riding with prize purses totaling $45,000. The rodeo events are fully sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association. Admission is free but RSVP is recommended online.
Adjacent to the rodeo arena, the Plaza Hotel & Casino will have a ‘Then & Now’ display of photos of downtown Las Vegas along with western-themed exhibits in a tented educational pavilion open to the public.
A Whiskerino contest will also be held offering prizes in multiple categories including longest beard, longest mustache, best natural beard, worst beard and most unique. Participants are encouraged to dress in Western attire or pioneer costumes and must be present at the rodeo to win.
The Las Vegas Day Rodeo will also feature Mutton Busting for future cowboys and cowgirls. The sheep riding competition is open to children aged four to ten who weigh less than 60 pounds. The winner gets a commemorative buckle.
Overall, the mission of the Las Vegas Day Rodeo is to bring the community together to celebrate the spirit of Old Las Vegas including those who shaped the city’s history and those who are working to preserve the western lifestyle while looking towards our future. To support this mission and the rodeo events, the Plaza Hotel & Casino has various partnership opportunities available for local businesses and individuals.

PointsBet Canada Renews The Sweep 16 Bracket Challenge with Spotlight Sports Group Ahead of Second Annual PointsBet Invitational Curling Tournament
Spotlight Sports Group (SSG), a world-leading technology, content and media company specializing in sports betting and fantasy sports, announced that it has built a fully-managed bracket challenge for PointsBet Canada to support its second annual curling tournament.
This partnership follows a successful execution of The Sweep 16 bracket challenge last year, which was well received and saw thousands of participants. This year’s platform has been updated to include new features such as allowing users to create private groups for additional play and enjoyment. This year’s bracket challenge also debuts one-click buttons that promote community connectivity and allow users to share their bracket on any social media platform.
The bracket challenge is hosted on a stand-alone platform and was built with a direct connection to the PointsBet Canada sportsbook so bracket challenge participants can easily place bets on the PointsBet Invitational as well as other sports.
Like last year, participants are competing for a $1 million grand prize, should they create a perfect bracket. The bracket challenge provides a one-stop-shop connection to the men’s and women’s tournaments via an up-to-the-minute tournament tracker that showcases match results in real time.
Commenting on the continued partnership, the US B2B Partnerships Senior Vice-President for Spotlight Sports Group, Rick Wolf, said: “When you have great success in a collaboration like we did last year, it was obvious to expand with PointsBet Canada. The SSG SaaS Games Engine is unique in its ability to create this custom solution with the design and direction of PointsBet’s team. The user experience is paramount and that is why we ensure participants can follow the tournament entirely on the platform and place bets with ease.”
The Chief Commercial Officer for PointsBet Canada, Nic Sulsky, added: “Last year’s inaugural PointsBet Invitational was a resounding success on the ice and The Sweep 16 bracket challenge brought the audience engagement to a new level. The top-notch SSG team manages everything from beginning to end, which allows us to focus on delivering the audience. Our combined success last year meant we could create a platform that mirrored our branding and provided a superior user experience again this year.”
The PointsBet Invitational will run from September 27 through October 1 at the Sixteen Mile Sports Complex in Oakville, Ontario. The Sweep 16 bracket challenge can be filled out at any point before the tournament begins.
Play’n GO make a break for the piggy bank in Piggy Blitz
First, Play’n GO established that pigs could fly in the classic Flying Pigs (2013), and now we’ve been shown that hogs may know a thing or two about coin collecting in the new online slot, Piggy Blitz.
Play’n GO’s always championed iGaming diversity and player choice – offering up a wide variety of titles such as dynamic Table Games, gripping Grid Slots and of course, fun and easy to follow Animal Slots. Piggy Blitz is no different. Set atop a gameshow-style backdrop – this title boasts 4,096 payways and a x5,000 max win potential.
This slot sees oink-busting features where collecting every coin from the magical piggy bank is the name of the game.
Players must match three or more Pig, Dice, Letter, Diamond Chip, and Coin symbols to secure a standard victory. As gameplay progresses, players will encounter three powerful fixed jackpots and a Bonus Cash Collection symbol that harbours the power to collect more coins. Reminiscent of the mechanic present in Cash Pump (2019) – this feature is present in both the standard game as well as the latter game modes.
Players can trot into the Blitz Spinz Free Spins round if three Scatter symbols are secured. During Blitz Spinz, only Guaranteed Win Spins and Cash Collection symbols can be secured – meaning no matter where the Piggy Bank erupts, it’s all high-value rewards across the board. Three Scatters unlocks five Free Spins, four unlocks ten and five unlocks 25. If a player secures six Scatters, they unlock a whopping 50 Free Spins – coupled with a major prize, Blitz Spinz make gameplay both immersive and rewarding.
Piggy Bank symbols can also be secured on multiple spots across the play table, further increasing prize potential. Alongside doubled Gold Coins, this title’s gameplay maximises ways in which players can win.
Head of Game Retention at Play’n GO, George Olekszy said:
“Piggy Blitz is all about instant action.”
“Having Guaranteed Win Spins, as well as regular Cash Collection symbols peppered throughout, make this title a lot of fun – we think fans will really enjoy it. Not to mention, x5,000-win potential and the cartoon, game show visuals are a delight too. Piggy Blitz is another classic for us, and it’s another perfect addition to the Play’n GO slot portfolio.”
