Circa Sports recently announced the return of its Ultimate Contest Weekend this August. Events during the weekend will take place at both Circa Resort and Casino and The D in downtown Las Vegas.
The event is a celebration for those entering the Circa Million and Circa Survivor contests. It’s also a good excuse to visit Las Vegas for those who want to enter the contests before the NFL season begins on Sept. 7.
Circa notes that there will be proxy services on hand to help those from outside of Nevada register for the contests.
This year’s total guaranteed prize money between the two pro football contests is $14 million. Circa Million has a $6 million guarantee in prizes. The prize pool for Circa Survivor is $8 million.
The prize money could be higher if there are more than $6 million or $8 million in entry fees for the respective contests.

Ultimate Contest Weekend is a combination of learning and partying for sports fans and bettors participating in one or both of the football contests.
