    Westgate introduces SuperContest Gold, $5K entry fee

    The Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest continues to grow every year, and 2017 will be no different.
    After a record 1,854 entries in 2016 -- the seventh straight year that the number of entries has increased -- the SuperContest is adding a new higher-end competition: SuperContest Gold.

    The new handicapping contest will be similar to the regular SuperContest in which SuperContestants pay $1,500 to enter and make five against-the-spread picks a week on NFL games, with a few differences.
    The biggest one? SuperContest Gold costs $5,000 to enter.

    The others:
    -- No administrative fee taken out for SuperContest Gold (an 8 percent rake is taken out on the regular SuperContest).
    -- Winner-take-all, instead of top 50 entries cashing. No tiebreakers or aggregate bonuses.
    -- Only one entry per person.

    "We think [SuperContest Gold] has so much potential," Westgate SuperBook manager Jay Kornegay told ESPN. "It continues the tradition of the SuperContest, especially the format, but this seemed like a natural way to enhance it. The winner gets a custom SuperContest Gold championship ring as well."

    The NFL spreads used will be from Westgate, released on Wednesday and will be static until the Saturday deadline to enter picks every week.
    Last year, a Starbucks barista won the SuperContest and took home $907,699.38.
