First introduced in 2017, the SuperContest Gold football betting contest is the high-stakes version of the Las Vegas SuperContest. The SuperContest Gold is similar in that contestants pick five games against the spread each week in an attempt to earn points for a season-long leaderboard, but it’s different in that the SuperContest Gold has a $5,000 buy-in and the contest features a winner-take-all payout structure.

How Does SuperContest Gold Scoring Work?
During the pro football regular season, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook releases SuperContest Gold point spreads on a weekly basis. Once released, these spreads do not change for a given week. SuperContest Gold contestants pick five games each week against the contest point spread. Just like the SuperContest scoring, contestants receive 1 point for a winning selection, 0.5 points for a push or tie, and 0 points for a loss.
Points are tallied over the course of the entire season. The SuperContest Gold winner is determined by the contestant with the most points over the entire season.
For more information on the scoring, see the example covered on our SuperContest page.
