What is “Sin to Win” and Why is it trending?

The reason the phrase “Sin to Win” is trending tonight on the web is because of tonight’s episode of Criminal Minds on CBS. The FBI Crime Drama featured an all-new episode earlier tonight.

At the beginning of the episode, Agent Emily Prentiss, played by Paget Brewster, complained when being assigned to a new urgent case because it meant her “Sin to Win Weekend” in Atlantic City was going to have to wait.

I had to grin when I saw this phrase was trending because I’d just finished watching the episode. I recently discovered this show, and even though it’s a little awful, I love it.

Tonight’s Criminal Minds episode was about a serial killer who killed himself after killing ten women over the course of 10 years.

At the end of the episode, Derek Morgan played by Shemar Moore, tells Agent Prentiss, “I give up. I have to know what a Sin to Win Weekend is.” Prentiss, who is playing poker with Agent Reed, refuses to tell Morgan, saying that if he doesn’t know what a Sin to Win Weekend is, he’s probably not ready to know. She leaves it up to his imagination, and to ours.

My guess is, it’s not a real thing.
