What They’re Playing For
This year’s SuperContest attracted a field of 1,172 entries, which is down quite a bit from last year’s record-setting field of 3,328 entries. Part of the drop in numbers is due to the COVID-19 pandemic and part is due to the rise of the Circa Sports Million.
With $1,380 of every $1,500 buy-in going to the SuperContest prize pool and the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook adding $100,000 to the quarterly prizes, there is $1,717,360 up for grabs in total. The 2020 SuperContest’s quarterly prizes account for $540,000 of that prize pool, meaning there is $1,177,360 left to play for.
In 2019, ‘It Aint Breezy’ won the Las Vegas SuperContest for $1.469 million.
