By signing a multi-year deal with the NFL, Tabcorp has made clear its intention to provide cutting edge access to NFL betting action.

Participants will also be eligible to win a Grand Prize that includes an all-expense paid trip to watch the Pro Bowl as the AFC pro-bowlers battles the NFC pro-bowlers at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida on Jan. 26, 2020.
