Circa Sports is raising the stakes again on NFL handicapping contests.

After increasing the guaranteed prize money for its Circa Million and Circa Survivor contests from an unprecedented $10 million in 2021 to $12 million last year, the downtown sportsbook this year is sweetening the pot to a record $14 million.

The $1,000 entry Million V will again feature $6 million in guaranteed payouts, while the $1,000 entry Survivor will feature an $8 million guaranteed payout — up from $6 million last season.

“We really want to grow the largest football contests ever. We want them to be a key part of the Circa Sports brand,” Circa casino owner Derek Stevens said.
