The Grand Prize for the BetMGM Survivor Pool Challenge is $100,000. 

But how exactly do you win?

How Does a Football Survivor Pool Work?

You pick one team to win each week of the season. The margin of victory doesn’t matter; it’s similar to NFL moneylines.

If your team wins — in regulation or overtime — you advance to the next week.

If your team loses or ties, you’re eliminated. 

If you advance, you must pick a different team to win in Week 2. Once you pick a team, you can’t pick that team again for the remainder of the season.

For example: You pick the Washington Commanders to beat the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1.

If the Commanders win, you advance to Week 2.

In Week 2, you can’t pick the Commanders to beat the Denver Broncos, nor can you pick the Commanders in Weeks 3-18.

The Survivor Pool Challenge continues until only one entrant remains or until all games are completed in Week 18.

What’s the Payout for the Survivor Pool?

The payout is $100,000 for the BetMGM Survivor Pool Challenge. 

If multiple entrants remain after the regular season, the Grand Prize will be equally split. There’s no end-of-season tiebreaker to determine one winner.
