Circa Survivor Pro Football Contest


Enter in Nevada. Play from anywhere.

Choose a different winning team each weekβ€”and plan ahead because you'll need teams that play on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Week Sunday-Monday to survive both holidays. The last entry standing wins $6 MILLION!

Submit picks in Nevada at the sportsbook or via our app, or play from out of state by registering a Nevada-based proxy.

Regarding a Potentially Shortened Season & Canceled Games

  • If a single surviving entry remains after any contest week, that entry will be awarded the Circa Survivor Contest Prize, even if the season is later canceled.
  • If the NFL season is canceled before Week 8, and multiple surviving entries remain, the contest will be canceled and all entry fees refunded.
  • If the NFL season is canceled after Week 8, all entries remaining when the season is canceled will split the Circa Survivor Contest Prize.
  • If the NFL season is canceled before Week 18, the The Undefeated Bonus Prize will not be awarded since it requires an entry to finish 20-0 across all 20 contest weeks (Weeks 1-18 plus Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day).
  • If the NFL season is suspended, the contest will be suspended until the season resumes, or until 90 days have passed without a regular season NFL game being played. In the latter case the contest will conclude and be graded as if the season has been canceled.
  • Entries that select a team in any game without a result by the end of its contest week will be eliminated and will not survive to the next contest week.
  • If the league awards a win and a loss for a game before the contest week ends and without the game being played (as in the case of a forfeit), selections for the winning team will advance. Selections for the losing team will be eliminated.
