Circa Survivor

Outsmart. Outpick. Outlast.

NFL 2023. 20 legs. 32 teams. $8 million dollars. The Circa Survivor pro football contest is back for its fourth year, and it’s sure to be an exciting season with an even bigger payout than last year. Do you have what it takes to pick a winner every week and outlast the competition? Get ready to test your luck for the chance to win big.

The contest will last up to 20 weeks starting with Week 1 of the NFL season and include Thanksgiving Day/Black Friday and Christmas as their own contest weeks. Each entry costs $1k, which comes with a Circa Survivor hat and ten entries maximum per person. If you lose on the opening TNF game, you may rebuy up to ten additional entries. For each leg of the contest, you will select one NFL team. Be careful with your selection, as each team can only be selected once per entry during the contest! If you select a team that loses or ties its NFL game during contest weeks 1-20, your entire entry will be eliminated from the contest.

Circa Survivor will continue until a single entry remains. The last remaining entry will win the entire pool with a promised minimum of $8 million dollars and the potential to win even more, since there’s no rake and all entry money goes toward the final prize. If more than one entry remains after all 20 legs are complete, or if all remaining entries are eliminated the same week, the pool will be split equally among all entries that submitted a pick that final week.
