For this installment of the SlotZilla Charity Challenge series, we teamed up with CBS Radio and its family of Las Vegas stations: 98.5 KLUC, Mix 94.1, Q100.5, X107.5 and Newstalk 840AM KXNT.

Representatives of the stations were on-site at the base of the SlotZilla zipline tower, speaking to guests and doing on-air promotions throughout the event.
