Play for Free and Win Prizes

Want to play DFS but not sure if you want to put real money at risk? DraftKings offers a nice series of freerolls in all of their sports that give away tickets to real money games. Of course, these freerolls have massive fields, with only the top few finishers earning tickets. Those who do manage to finish at the top earn tickets to "Step 1" tournaments with $2 value. Those can then be parlayed on through the steps up to Step 4, six-player contests that award $200 to the top two spots and a Step 4 refund to the third-place finisher.

The freeroll and steps system is an awesome way for newcomers and those unsure about their interest in DFS to try it out and potentially win cash prizes.

Live Finals and Satellites

One of the highlights of every DFS "season" is the huge live finals offered by some of the bigger sites. Available only through qualifiers, these feature hotel and expenses paid trips to exciting destinations like Las Vegas, monstrous prizes up top, and the gala, fanfare, and pressure of live sweats in the biggest contests of the year. DraftKings recently rolled out an industry-first: a live fantasy golf championship with $600,000 in prizes split amongst 25 qualifiers. Live baseball, football, basketball, and hockey events have qualifiers running each season almost as soon as they're announced. Winning these five-figure packages is among the most exciting things in DFS.

Additionally, for the poker players in the DFS crowd, DraftKings has partnered with both the World Series of Poker and the World Poker Tour to offer satellites year-round into huge live poker events.

Check out all of these, as well as satellites into big GPPs, under the "Qualifiers" tab in the main lobby.

Bonuses and Promotions

DraftKings offers a slew of bonuses and a continually updated series of promotions for new and existing players to take advantage of. The social referral program is another benefit players can take advantage of. If you have friends who would enjoy the excitement of DFS, simply send them your easy-to-find referral link (click on "Refer-A-Friend" in the top right options wheel) and you'll get a cut of the rake they pay, usable in any DraftKings contest.

Simply hover your cursor over the "Promotions" tab in the top right of the main lobby page to see what DraftKings is currently offering. There's always a huge contest coming up with plenty of satellites running and a colossal prize up top, often for a very affordable buy-in.

If it's rewards and customer loyalty you're wondering about, DraftKings runs a program based on their FPPs that offers the ability to trade in the points for tangible prizes. You can grab yourself some DraftKings gear or buy some small buy-in tickets for just a few thousand FPPs, or you can horde your FPPs and save up for huge prizes like private coaching and nosebleed buy-ins.

Summary

One of the premier DFS destinations, DraftKings has earned its position in the top tier of the industry. From awesome game selection to satellites to huge live events, DraftKings truly has it all. Furthermore, the team running DraftKings has proved time and again they're committed to being on the cutting edge of the DFS scene, pushing the established boundaries with things like the Millionaire Maker series and being one of the first sites to offer MMA games. You'll be hard-pressed to find a more attractive room to play DFS.
