Casino hosts state's largest NFL fantasy draft

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Football fans flocked to the Potawatomi Casino on Thursday, August 28th for one of the state's largest fantasy drafts ever.

Nearly 1,000 people registered to attend Thursday's event. Prizes were handed out, including flat screen TV's, and real game tickets.

Fantasy team owners got to meet with Packers legends Ahman Green, and Dorsey Levens.

"It's a lot of good information, you know I'm in some fantasy leagues of my own, so I kind of pick some people's brains, most people here are going to pick most if not all Packers if they can, so it's a little different, it's fun none-the-less," said Levens.

About 33-million people across the country play fantasy football every year, making it a $3 billion dollar industry.
