2019 Las Vegas SuperContest Sign-Ups Start March 1
The Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest will get things started even earlier in 2019, with sign-ups set to begin Friday, March 1, 2019. That’s four months earlier than the July 1 sign-up date from 2018 and could go a long way in making numbers boom more than ever before.
In addition to the early open for the sign-up window, the 8th Annual SuperContest Weekend is slated to return to the Westgate SuperBook in late August to kickstart the 2019 football season. Exact dates for SuperContest Weekend have yet to be announced.
In 2018, the $1,500 buy-in Las Vegas SuperContest experienced its eighth consecutive record-setting year, with 3,123 entries being the largest-ever turnout for “the ultimate football handicapping challenge.”
The Las Vegas SuperContest Gold, Westgate’s $5,000 buy-in, winner-take-all handicapping contest, also had its largest turnout ever with 128 entries.
Both the Las Vegas SuperContest and SuperContest Gold see contestants compete over the course of the 17-week professional football regular season. Contestants select five games against the contest spread each week, with one point earned for a cover, a half point earned for a push, and zero points earned if a pick doesn’t cover. At the end of the NFL’s 17-week regular season, the contestant with the most points earned wins first place. In the regular SuperContest, first place receives the highest payouts and prizes gradually decrease from there.
In 2018, the top 100 places paid out and the winner, ‘PERSONAL GOURMET,’ a 44-year-old from Southern California, took home $1.422 million in first-place prize money from the SuperContest. In the winner-take all SuperContest Gold, ‘THERE CAN BE ONLY 1’ captured the $640,000 top prize.
