LAS VEGAS – Today, Circa Sports – the Las Vegas-based sports betting brand from CEO Derek Stevens – announced the return of its pro football contests, Circa Million IV and Circa Survivor. After an unprecedented $11 million payout for the 2021-2022 season, this year’s contests promise the largest payout ever with a guarantee of $12 million, no rake. Sign-ups are now open through September 10 at all Circa Sports southern Nevada locations.

“We’re back and bigger than ever for our fourth season of Circa Million IV and Circa Survivor,” said Circa Sports CEO, Derek Stevens. “Last year, we awarded six people individual $1 million payouts, which was the largest for any sports betting contest ever. It’s already shaping up to be a major year for football and we can’t wait to see what the 2022-2023 season brings.”

Circa Million IV

Circa Million IV will deliver $6 million in guaranteed total prizes, with a $1 million first place prize that comes with a coveted, handmade Circa Sports blue jacket. The contest includes no rake, and any extra fees go into the quarter and full season prize pools.

$3.65 million will be available to win for places two through 100 and $300,000 of prizes per quarter will be awarded every four to five weeks. The last place booby prize will receive $100,000 and second to last place booby prize will receive $50,000.

To enter, each player will make five professional football picks against the spread each week. One point will be awarded for each correct selection and one-half point for each push. Each entry for Circa Million IV is $1,000, with a maximum of three entries per person.

Circa Survivor

Circa Survivor returns for a new season with a hefty $6 million payout for the last entry standing. A $1 million undefeated bonus prize will be gifted for any entry that goes 20-0. To be eligible for this bonus prize, an entrant must not choose both teams in any week that played in the 2022 championship game.

Circa Survivor will consist of up to 20 legs throughout the year, one for every week of the football season plus two special weeks. Each week, participants will choose one different team to win straight up, but the player cannot pick the same team twice for the duration of the season. Thanksgiving and Christmas will each be considered their own contest weeks. Entries are $1,000 each, with a maximum of six entries per participant. An entrant can purchase up to six additional entries if they lose their original entries on the opening Thursday Night Football game. An entrant cannot go into the Saturday deadline with more than six active entries.

Entries are eliminated from the contest by selecting a team that subsequently loses or ties its game that week. If more than one entry remains after 20 legs, the pool will be split equally amongst all the entries that successfully submitted a selection during the leg. If an entry wins before the 20th leg of the contest, the winner will have the opportunity to continue making selections each week to try and achieve the 20-0 record.

Sign-ups for both Circa Millions IV and Circa Survivor start today and conclude on September 10 at 2 p.m. PST. Entries can be made at the any of the following Nevada Circa Sports locations:

Entries for participants outside of Nevada can register a proxy to submit picks from within Nevada. For more information, visit
