The Ultimate Pro Football Challenge is returning to the Westgate.
Known as the “world’s most popular professional football handicapping contest,” the 30th annual SuperContest will again set a record by awarding its largest prize, more than $1 million, to its grand prize winner at the conclusion of the 2018 football season.
Fresh off awarding a $1,327,284 check to the 2017 winner, the largest in the contest’s long history, the SuperContest is the ultimate pro football handicapping competition in the world. Entries are now being accepted through Sept. 8 at 11 a.m. The contest has a $1,500 entry fee prior to the start of the regular NFL season and contestants pick five games each week against the contest line.
The contestant who correctly earns the most points for the entire schedule will be declared the champion. Non-Nevada residents may take part by using a proxy to enter their selections each week. Westgate Resort and Casino is not affiliated with any proxy service. Additional details are available at westgatevegas.com. In addition to the SuperContest the SuperBook will again offer the SuperContest Gold contest, which debuted in 2017.
This all new $5,000 tourney is separate from the SuperContest and the winner will walk away with 100% of the entry fees. This winner-take-all will have contestants selecting five pro football games, similar to the SuperContest, each week versus the Westgate line.
