“Each year the SuperContest continues to get bigger and better,” said Jay Kornegay, Vice President of Race & Sports for the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino. “This popular contest has grown tremendously, doubling in the number of entries, and we are excited for all of this year’s winners.”
The SuperContest is the ultimate pro football handicapping contest in the world’s largest race & sports book, the SuperBook®. Contestants can win their share of the prize pool by paying a $1,500 entry fee prior to the start of the regular professional football season and then must pick five games each week against the point spread throughout the 17-week regular season. The prize structure is based on the number of entrants and is structured so that contestants receive 100% of the prize money paid in.
