LAS VEGAS – Circa Sports has raised the stakes once again. The Nevada-based sports betting brand has brought back the popular professional football contests Circa Million VI and Circa Survivor with its biggest payout yet – $16 million, no rake. With signups launching May 24 at 9 a.m. in all Circa Sports Nevada locations, this marks the largest prize pool ever for contests of this kind.   

“This year, it’s go big or go home with the Circa Sports contests,” said Circa Sports CEO Derek Stevens. “We only have ourselves to top so we’re back with the biggest guarantee yet. With a whopping $16 million, no rake, up for grabs, we are excited to see what craziness this football season holds.”

For the 2024-2025 season, Circa Survivor will return with a $10 million prize guarantee and Circa Million VI with a $6 million guarantee. Sign-ups begin May 24 at 9 a.m. at all Circa Sports Nevada locations and are open until September 7th at 2 p.m. during the first week of the professional football season.

About Circa Survivor

The Circa Survivor contest winner will win $10 million guaranteed plus more if entries exceed this amount.

Circa Survivor will consist of up to 20 legs throughout the year, one for every week of the football season plus two special holiday weeks. Each week, participants will choose a team to win straight up, but the player cannot pick the same team twice for the duration of the season. Thanksgiving + Black Friday and the Christmas leg (Wednesday/Thursday games) will each be considered their own contest weeks.

Entries are $1,000 each, with a maximum of 10 entries per participant. An entrant can purchase additional entries if they lose their original entries on the opening Thursday night or Friday night games. All entrants will receive a Circa Survivor 2024 hat.

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. An entrant cannot go into the Saturday deadline with more than ten active entries. Each team can only be selected once each entry during the contest season.

During the season, picks are due at 4 p.m. PST every Saturday or before kickoff of the selected games. For Thanksgiving and Black Friday, picks are due by 10 p.m. PST the preceding Wednesday night. For Christmas, picks are due by 9 a.m. PST on Wednesday, December 25.

About Circa Million VI

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

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

Each player will make five picks against the spread each week via the Circa Sports Nevada mobile app, a Circa Sports kiosk or over the counter at any of the six Circa Sports locations in Nevada. One point will be awarded for each correct selection and one-half point for each push. Each entry for Circa Million VI is $1,000, with a maximum of five entries per person. All entrants will receive a Circa Million VI hat.

Cash prizes will be awarded to the top 100 places for the season, the top five places within each quarter of the season, the last place and second to last place full season score and the last place score within each quarter of the season.

Contest point spreads will be posted every Thursday around 10 a.m. PST, with selections due by 4 p.m. Saturday. During Thanksgiving week, point spreads will be posted at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
