After two wild weeks of NFL action, even more serious gamblers are feeling the burn: Of the 6,133 participants who paid the $1,000 entry fee to compete in the survivor pool offered by the Circa Sportsbook in Las Vegas, just 2,033 remain.
The prize for winning Circa’s pool is north of $6 million. That kind of money is life changing. The first two weeks of this NFL season have been crazy, as evidenced by how many people are already eliminated from the contest.
Gambling has always been a huge part of NFL football and that will never change.
