It’s hard to believe but the start of the NFL season is less than three weeks away. This of course also means that online sportsbooks are gearing up for the height of the sports betting season to jockey for position in proving that they are the number one sportsbook. This is something that DraftKings is dramatically accomplishing with their $100 Million Golden Ticket Giveaway, heading into the 2020-2021 NFL season and available for both sports bettors and DFS users for free.
Going into this NFL season, 19 stats will have legalized online sportsbetting with more than a handful also offering online sports betting. DraftKings is one of the biggest players in legalized online sports betting today, taking online bets legally in nine different states. Add this to the fact that DraftKings offers its daily fantasy sports site in over 40 states and you have the makings of a site that can offer huge promotions.
Enter the $100 Million Golden Ticket Giveaway, which comes to both DraftKings Online Sportsbook and Daily Fantasy Sports users. You read that right, DraftKings is going to be giving up to $100 million in prizes for free in the weeks leading up to the NFL season as well as during the NFL season. It’s the type of promotion that is turning heads for anyone that is even remotely interested in sports and if you have any interest at all in NFL or DraftKings, you should take notice.
$100 million is a big number, so how is DraftKings possibly giving away this much money? The promotion centers around the year-long DraftKings Survivor Pool, although only a small portion of the prizes awarded the Golden Ticket Giveaway are from the Pool.
Most of the value from the DraftKings Golden Ticket comes in the form of Instant Rewards.
When submitting your pick for the first week of the DraftKings Survival Pool, DraftKings will automatically credit your account with Instant Rewards ranging from $5 to $25,000 in value. Anything below $1,000 will be added to your account in the form of DraftKings credits, which must be used in the sportsbook or DFS site by September 30th.
If you are lucky enough to be credited $1,000 or $25,000, you will be issued that reward in cash.
DraftKings Golden Ticket Giveway
When you make your first pick in the DraftKings Survivor Pool, you will also be credited with an entry into the Golden Ticket Giveaway sweepstakes to the drawing set for September 13th.
The drawing will award 1 prize of $1 million to one lucky winner on or around September 13th from all eligible entries. The winner of the drawing will be sent an email with the winner required to respond within 72 hours.
DraftKings 2020 Survivor Pool
If you are a fan of the NFL, chances are you are familiar with a Survivor Pool. Basically in a Survivor Pool, each week you will select one team that you feel will win in a given week.
All participants who correctly predict a winner, will move on to the next week and you won’t be able to pick the same team twice. If you incorrectly pick a winner, you will be removed from the pool. If you are the last user remaining in the Pool, you are the “Survivor” and win the pool.
DraftKings will be awarding $1 million to the user who wins the DraftKings Survivor Pool, crowing yet another millionaire this NFL season.
