Since its inception in April 2012, daily fantasy leader DraftKings.com has given out over $10,000,000 in prizes. The site understands that huge contests are what pique interest, and are taking that sentiment to heart this baseball season. On the heels of their latest $100,000 contest in mid-May, DraftKings is offering another $100,000 on June 14th, and a staggering $500,000 contest on July 19th.
The best part? You can qualify into these contests for just $2! Poker players are very familiar with the idea of qualifying into major events and have had great success playing on DraftKings. This was never more evident than during the biggest DraftKings event ever, when poker pro Sam Greenwood took down the $250,000 Main Event during week 16 of the NFL season. He played only one entry.
For a limited time PokerNews readers are also eligible for DraftKings’ 100% deposit bonus on up to $600 worth of deposits.
DraftKings has more goodies for poker players. If you’re at the 2013 World Series of Poker, either find a DraftKings representative or send an email to email@example.com and request a patch. If you’re photographed on PokerNews with the patch, you’ll win a bonus ticket into DraftKings upcoming $500,000 contest. If you make it all the way to the final table and are photographed, you’ll be credited an extra ticket into the $500,000 contest.
