Flights at this price start in mid-July and are available through October 3, 2018. Departures are valid on Monday through Thursday and Saturdays at this price point, with no minimum stay required. This fare books into United's regular economy fare class which is rare for a fare at this price nowadays. That will allow you to pack that standard sized carry on your return flight with all your winnings.
Searching on the United website, I was able to find seats departing BDL on Saturday, September 1, and returning from LAS on Wednesday, September 5, 2018. Great for an extended Labor Day weekend trip, if you want to leave sooner flights are available during July and August too at this rate.
