It’s that time of year again! After an unprecedented $12 million payout for the 2022-23 season, Circa Sports Million and Circa Survivor both return for another year for an even bigger payout. At a guaranteed $14 million payout between the two contests, no rake, this year’s pro football contests promise the largest payout ever for an exciting 2023-24 NFL season.

Get ready for the Circa Sports Million V, where you’ll have another chance to tackle the big money with a $1 million top prize and quarterly prizes throughout the season. And that’s not all. The Circa Survivor challenge is back for its fourth year as well with an $8 million prize for the last entry standing. Think you’re a pro football expert? These exciting Circa Sports pro football contests will put your skills to the test.

“We always want to keep raising the stakes for our football contests and knew we had to go big for the fifth year,” said Circa Sports CEO Derek Stevens. “Last year, we gave away $12 million in prizes, so to up the pool by $2 million is an exciting feeling for our team. We can’t wait to get the season started this September.”

On August 26, Derek Stevens, Mike Palm, and expert panelists held the annual Circa Football Preview with a panel of sports betting pros, including co-host of VSiN Tonight Wes Reynolds, Circa Sports Risk Manager Dylan Sullivan, VP and Partner at SumerSports Eric Eager, and the host of VSiN’s Primetime Football show Mike Somich. The panel discussed the upcoming NFL season and strategies for the upcoming pro football contests with a live Q&A, bringing together locals, past winners, and the football community leading up to the launch of the contests.

Circa Survivor


Outsmart. Outpick. Outlast.

NFL 2023. 20 legs. 32 teams. $8 million dollars. The Circa Survivor pro football contest is back for its fourth year, and it’s sure to be an exciting season with an even bigger payout than last year. Do you have what it takes to pick a winner every week and outlast the competition? Get ready to test your luck for the chance to win big.

The contest will last up to 20 weeks starting with Week 1 of the NFL season and include Thanksgiving Day/Black Friday and Christmas as their own contest weeks. Each entry costs $1k, which comes with a Circa Survivor hat and ten entries maximum per person. If you lose on the opening TNF game, you may rebuy up to ten additional entries. For each leg of the contest, you will select one NFL team. Be careful with your selection, as each team can only be selected once per entry during the contest! If you select a team that loses or ties its NFL game during contest weeks 1-20, your entire entry will be eliminated from the contest.

Circa Survivor will continue until a single entry remains. The last remaining entry will win the entire pool with a promised minimum of $8 million dollars and the potential to win even more, since there’s no rake and all entry money goes toward the final prize. If more than one entry remains after all 20 legs are complete, or if all remaining entries are eliminated the same week, the pool will be split equally among all entries that submitted a pick that final week.
