A lot of kids dream of being glamorous movie stars or playing lead guitar for a kick ass rock band when they grow up.  I went through a short phase right after I saw “This Is Spinal Tap” in ’84 where I wanted to be both an actor AND a rockstar.  Needless to say, I soon found craps, blackjack, and poker and quickly dropped those childish dreams in pursuit of a more realistic (and way more fun) career path.

Still, whenever I can combine my childhood dreams with my current profession, I jump on the opportunity.  That is why it is with great pleasure I bring to you the Silver Oak Casino Oscars Challenge. Guess the winners of Best Picture, Best Actress, and Best Actor and you will win up to $500 in casino cash!  Here’s how it works:

Pick the Winners

Just guess who you think will win in each of the 3 aforementioned categories.  Each winner you guess correctly will win you $100 in cash to play at Silver Oak Casino.  If you pick the winner of all 3 categories successfully, you will win $100 for each correct guess PLUS a $200 bonus prize, for a total of $500 in Silver Oak Casino cash!

How to Choose the Winners

Simply log in to your Silver Oak account, click on “Reedeem Coupon” and enter the code below that corresponds with who you think will win.  To sweeten the deal even further, each of the following codes works as a 175% match bonus with a minimum deposit of only $30.  Not sure who will win?  No Problem!  You can use as many of the codes as you like, or even use all of them!
