Circa | Sports Million II Pro Football Contest: Official Contest Rules

The "Circa | Sports Million™" (hereinafter the "Contest") is a promotional event that will be conducted between 8:00 AM on Friday, March 6, 2020, and ending at 10:00 AM on Tuesday, January 5, 2021, at the Golden Gate Hotel & Casino located at 1 Fremont Street, Las Vegas, NV 89101, and at the D Las Vegas located at 301 Fremont Street, Las Vegas, NV 89101. All references to time of day refer to Las Vegas, NV time. All specific dates are subject to change once the NFL weekly schedule is released, in which case these Rules will be updated for any such changes.

  1. There is a $1,000 fee per entry. All entry fees are non-refundable, unless the Contest is canceled by Circa | Sports. Allowable methods of payment include cash, Golden Gate Hotel & Casino or the D Las Vegas gaming chips, and credit cards. Entries purchased via credit card will be subject to a credit card processing fee.
  2. All entrants and proxies must be at least 21 years of age to participate. Contestants must provide valid government picture identification prior to entry. All submitted entries are subject to potential 3rd party verification. All entrants must also be a current member of "Club One™". The Club One card is free and available at the Golden Gate Hotel & Casino/the D Las Vegas Players' Clubs or sportsbooks.
  3. Contestants may purchase a maximum of three (3) entries per person. Purchasing more than three (3) entries will result in disqualification from the Contest without any refund. Contestants who have multiple entries earning prizes will be paid for each entry's corresponding prize dollar amount.
  4. Circa | Sports™ reserves the right to reject any submitted alias for any reason at any time. If Circa | Sports decides to change an alias after the sign-up process is completed, Circa | Sports will make a reasonable effort to contact the entrant and give an opportunity to provide an acceptable alias. In the event no acceptable alias can be provided, the Contest ID number will be the official name of the entry, and that ID number will be displayed in all official standings and/or prize documents.
  5. Payment of entry fees for this Contest, along with the registration form, will be accepted at the Golden Gate Hotel & Casino and the D Las Vegas beginning at 8:00 AM on March 6, 2020, and will be accepted until 2:00 PM on the Saturday prior to the first Sunday of NFL games.
  6. The Contest is won by accruing as many points as possible, based on five (5) weekly pro football selections against a static point spread. Contestants will be awarded one (1) point for each correct selection, one half (.5) point for each push, and zero (0) points for each incorrect selection.
  7. Contest point spreads will be available at approximately 10:00 AM on each Thursday during the Contest period. Weekly selections must be submitted by 3:00 PM on each Saturday during the duration of the Contest. Attempts to make selections after this deadline will not be accepted. In the event a Contestant is unable to submit their selections before the weekly deadline, he/she will be awarded zero (0) points for that week. Missing a deadline in no way prevents a contestant from submitting selections in subsequent weeks during the Contest.
  8. Contestants who would like to select games that occur prior to the selection deadline (for example, Thursday Night Football) must submit all five (5) of their selections prior to kickoff of the earliest game they are selecting that week. Partial submissions will not be accepted.
  9. Each contestant may authorize up to three (3) proxies to submit their weekly selections. Proxies must be registered in person and must satisfy the same ID requirements under Rule 2. Circa | Sports does not officially endorse or recommend any proxy or proxy service and shall not be involved in any proxy agreement under any circumstance. Furthermore, all contestants assume sole liability of submitting their weekly selections, whether a proxy is registered or not. Circa | Sports will under no circumstance mediate between any contestant and any proxy.
  10. Contestants and proxies can submit weekly selections at any Circa | Sports location during each selection period (10:00 AM Thursday – 3:00 PM Saturday). Selections may be made via a Circa | Sports betting window (requires use of the Circa | Sports Contest card), Circa | Sports kiosks (requires use of the Circa | Sports Contest card), or the Circa | Sports mobile app (by logging onto the Circa | Sports mobile app and entering their Circa | Sports Contest card ID and password). Contestants/proxies must be within the geographic boundary of the State of Nevada to make mobile selections via the Circa | Sports mobile app. Circa | Sports is not responsible for any technical difficulties, malfunctions or any other unforeseen issues regarding use of the Circa | Sports mobile app platform. Technical malfunctions of the Circa | Sports mobile app will not change the selection deadline under any circumstances.
  11. By signing a Contest registration form, a contestant designates themselves as an "Official Contestant" and the only one approved to collect any prize of any kind. Proxies are not eligible to collect any prize or monies for a contestant.
  12. Circa | Sports will provide each entrant with a receipt once a selection has been made. Selection receipts at Circa | Sports kiosks and betting windows will be a physical ticket reflecting the selections made, and such receipts represent the official entry of record for the contestant's weekly selections. Receipts on the Circa | Sports mobile app will be in the form of a digital confirmation screen reflecting selections made, and such receipts represent the official entry of record for the contestant's weekly selections. Contestants are encouraged to take a screenshot of the confirmation screen when it appears just after selections are submitted. No other documents provided by Circa | Sports shall be considered official record of weekly selections.
  13. Contestants may only submit weekly selections once per week per Contest entry, unless a one-time exception is granted by Circa | Sports management in its sole and absolute discretion. Contestants/proxies cannot request voids or changes to weekly selections after the 3:00 PM Saturday deadline or after any of the selected games have begun. Weekly Contest selections can only be voided at either the Golden Gate Hotel & Casino or the D Las Vegas sportsbooks with the approval of Circa | Sports management in its sole and absolute discretion.
  14. Prize Structure:
    1. The prize pool will consist of a guaranteed $3 million in total. The prize pool will be funded with Contest entry fees and supplemented by Circa | Sports should the number of entries be less than 3,000. All prize payouts will be made in cash, check, casino chips, free slot play, table games promo chips, or a combination thereof at the winner's election.
    2. Should the number of entries total more than 3,000, all additional entry fees will be split equally between each of the four "Quarter MVP" 1st Place prizes.
    3. Tiebreaking rules will only be applied to determine the overall season-long 1st Place winner. In the event of a tie for 1st Place, the winner will be determined based on the contestant that accumulated the most Contest points during the final five (5) weeks of the regular season. If total points accumulated during the final five (5) weeks are equal, then the tiebreaker will revert to the contestant that has accumulated the most contest points during Weeks 9-12. If total points accumulated during Weeks 9-12 are equal, then the tiebreaker will revert to the contestant that has accumulated the most Contest points during Weeks 5-8. If total points accumulated during Weeks 5-8 are equal, then the tiebreaker will revert to the contestant that has accumulated the most Contest points during Weeks 1-4. In the event of a tie after application of all tiebreakers, multiple 1st Place winners will be declared, and the aggregate prize money will be split equally amongst the number of contestants tied for 1st Place.
    4. All ties for finishing positions other than 1st Place will be split evenly among all contestants in the tie. (For example, if two contestants are tied for 2nd Place, the prizes for 2nd and 3rd place will be added together and split evenly. Official finishing position for these two contestants would be "T-2nd", and the next finisher in this situation would finish 4th.)

*If total Contest entry fees paid exceed the guaranteed prize pool of $3,000,000, all overage will be divided evenly among the four prizes for 1st Place in each Quarter.

  1. The Contest will be considered official after week 12 of the professional football season begins. If the professional football season does not run at least twelve (12) full weeks, all Contest entry fees will be refunded. If the professional football season is not completed as scheduled, but lasts twelve (12) full weeks or more, the point leader at the time the season is canceled will be declared the winner. This rule in no way affects the MVP bonus payouts. If material technical difficulties or other Acts of God circumstances prevent the Contest from being completed after week 12, the Contest will still be action and prizes will be awarded based on current point totals at the time of cancellation.
    1. If the NFL season is suspended (but not outright canceled), the Contest will be suspended until the season resumes. If 90 days pass with no NFL game being completed, the Contest will end and entry fees will either be refunded (if before Week 12 is completed) or prizes will be awarded based on current point totals at the time of cancellation (if during or after completion of Week 12). This rule will also apply to Quarterly MVP
  2. All Circa | Sports House Rules shall also apply to this Contest, unless otherwise stated in these Rules.

  4. Circa | Sports will make a reasonable effort to find alternative methods of accepting weekly selections in the event of a computer system failure.
  5. Solely for Contest purposes, all games are “action” despite any change in a game’s location. If a game deviates from its originally scheduled time and location, the game must be completed by 1:59 AM on Tuesday of the Contest Week in order for it to be eligible to be graded as a “win”. Games that are not completed within the “Contest Week” will be graded a push for the Contest and awarded one half (.5) points. A “Contest Week” shall mean seven (7) consecutive calendar days starting on Tuesday at 2:00 AM and ending on the following Tuesday at 1:59 AM.
  6. After the final Contest winners are posted, a three (3) day audit period will occur.
