Circa Sports Million

A new Las Vegas bookmaker has thrown its hat into the contest mix. The Golden Gate Casino is launching the Circa Sports Million, a handicapping contest a lot like Westgate's SuperContest. For an entry fee of $1,000, contestants must pick five NFL games ATS for the duration of the regular season. The grand prize is a guaranteed $1,000,000 no matter how many entrants there are. Plus, there’s $50,000 worth of prizes awarded every quarter of the season for participants with the most correct ATS picks.

What sets this competition apart from SuperContest and the Ultimate Football Challenge is that there is NO rake. The sportsbook will pay out 100 percent to winners. Moreover, if you are a Nevada resident you can make your picks from your phone instead of visiting the Golden Gate in person.
