Buffalo Wild Wings said the restaurant will give out free wings to "everyone in America" if Super Bowl LIII goes into overtime.

The sports bar said the deal is: If the game goes into an overtime period, all customers who visit any U.S. Buffalo Wild Wings locations on Feb. 18 between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. will receive one free order of snack-sized chicken wings, either boneless or traditional.

No purchase will be necessary, but the promotion is only available to customers who dine-in.

Buffalo Wild Wings said there is a good chance the big game will go into overtime.

"The Buffalo Wild Wings overtime button has apparently been working all year with a regular season that saw 15 overtime games, and for the first time in history, two postseason OT games in the same day," the restaurant said in a news release.

During last year's Super Bowl game, Buffalo Wild Wings sold over 14 million traditional and boneless wings. Wings are considered a staple at every Super Bowl watch party.

“We know fans get a thrill out of having something riding on the outcome of the game, and given the number of overtime games we’ve seen all season, we wanted to up the ante for everyone," said Seth Freeman, Chief Marketing Officer of Buffalo Wild Wings. "Even if you don’t have a dog in the fight, we all have a common rooting interest in extending the game because that means more football, and now, free wings!” 

The Los Angeles Rams will go up against the New England Patriots, who will be returning to the big game for the third year in a row, on Feb. 3.
