What is Circa Survivor?

Circa Survivor is a contest in which contestants pick one NFL team to win its game every week. If your team wins, you survive to the next week. The final contestant standing wins the grand prize. You can only use each team once during the season. For Contest purposes, Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 25) and Christmas Day (Dec. 25) are also their own independent “Contest Week,” making 20 total potential selections per entry.

Who is eligible to play? How can I sign up?

Contestants can sign up in person now at Golden Gate Hotel & Casino, the D Las Vegas Casino, the Circa Resort & Casino, the Tuscany Suites & Casino and The Pass at Water Street casino in Las Vegas. Participants must sign up in person.

How much does it cost?

Each entry costs $1,000. Contestants can buy up to six entries before the contest begins.

What is the prize?

There is a guaranteed $6 million given in prizes. To be eligible for another $1 million bonus, a contestant must save the Super Bowl LV participants (Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers) and use them in Week 18. If more than one contestant goes 20-0, the prize pool is divided among all the winners.

Do I have to live in Nevada to be part of the contest?

No, but contestants do need to enter picks every week in Nevada between Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. PT and Saturday and 3:00 p.m. PT either at Circa kiosk, casino or via the Circa app. Proxies are available for a fee to enter contestants’ picks throughout the season.
