LAS VEGAS – March Madness is looming, but the 2020 football contest season is on a lot of people’s minds with Circa Sports opening registration for its two contests at 8 a.m. PT on Friday, March 6, at the downtown Golden Gate & D hotel-casinos.
For those who don’t know, Circa Sports had added a Circa Survivor contest ($1,000 entry fee, limit 5 per person, can use each NFL just once, $1 million guaranteed minimum to champion, Thanksgiving games counts as own week, $1 million bonus for champ going 18-0) to the second running of the Circa Sports Million ($1,000 entry fee, guaranteed $3 million prize pool with $1 million to champion, pays Top 50, $250,000 prizes each “Quarter” with prizes split 150K/75K/25K). My story on Circa’s offerings is on our VSiN website at: https://www.vsin.com/circa-doubles-up-on-big-football-contests/ and you can get full details on Circa Sports Million II at https://www.goldengatecasino.com/circa-sports/the-circa-sports-million-pro-football-contest/ and the Circa Survivor at https://www.goldengatecasino.com/circa-sports/the-circa-survivor-pro-football-contest/.
The Westgate SuperBook has been taking entries for its three high-end football contests (SuperContest Classic with $1,500 entry fee, winner-take-all SuperContest Gold with $5,000 entry fee and SuperContest Reboot on NFL Weeks 9-17 with $500 entry fee) since Jan. 13. My VSiN article on the difference in the Westgate’s rules for 2020 are at https://www.vsin.com/westgate-opens-2020-supercontest-registrations-on-monday/ while all the official rules can be found at https://www.westgateresorts.com/hotels/nevada/las-vegas/westgate-las-vegas-resort-casino/casino/supercontest/p>
