Who doesn’t want to say winner, winner chicken dinner? Buffalo Wild Wings has brought back its Big Game overtime promotion for the fourth year. Although the AFC playoff game went into overtime, everyone will be wondering if the match-up between the LA Rams and Cincinnati Bengals will see that second coin flip. Should someone ask the magic eight ball?

For the past four years, Buffalo Wild Wings has bet on overtime. Basically, the promotion states that if the end of season football game on February 13 ends regulation in a tied score, “everyone in the U.S. and Canada can redeem six free boneless or traditional wings at Buffalo Wild Wings on February 28 from 4-7 p.m. local time. The offer is available for dine-in and in-person takeout only.”

While the math wizards might be able to do the statistics on whether this promotion will or will not come to fruition, many people will be hoping for free wings. Even if the big game went into overtime in 2017, no one can actually predict if it will happen again this year. If anyone saw that huge interception or that the last-minute time out would ice the kicker, they would clean up at the sports book.

Still, this free food promotion adds to the excitement around the event. Whether it is the person who doesn’t know a slant pass from an end around or the person who can recite every completion percentage, the reality is that these promotions bridge the gap between people who are watching the game.

Putting aside the various wagers surrounding both the big game and sports, restaurants want to be part of the big moment conversation. Rolling the dice on having to give everyone some free wings is worth the bet. Hopefully Buffalo Wild Wings has a food provider on speed dial if they have to give away six wings to all those people.

And, why not let Buffalo Wild Wings simplify that big game food spread. Whether watching the game at a restaurant or placing a to-go order, America’s favorite sports bar has everyone covered.
