You’re invited to flex your fantasy muscles, and play in the DraftKings $1,000,000 Chase for the Crown! Our goal was to develop the Premier Fantasy Football Tournament Program in all of Fantasy Sports, and the huge prize pools will not come up short! Here’s what the program is all about, and how you can cash in huge this NFL season!
WHAT IS THE “CHASE”?
DraftKings’ $1 Million Dollar Chase for the Crown is an exclusive Weekly Fantasy Football Tournament Program running during the 2012-2013 NFL season, with over $1,000,000 in Guaranteed Cash Payouts, plus a trip to the 2013 Super Bowl in New Orleans on the line. It consists of several tournaments running each week of the NFL season. DraftKings is guaranteeing total prize pools of well over $1,000,000 in the Chase Events.
The Featured Event of the Chase is a $250,000 Guaranteed Main Event in NFL Week 16, where one player will turn their $200 entry fee into a huge, $100,000 top prize. 200 total players will cash in the event, which is capped at 1400 entries. You can enter into this contest as many times as you want to maximize your chances of winning $100,000 top prize.
You don’t need $200 to play in the Main Event. Sure, you can buy in directly to all Chase events including the $250,000 Main Event. But for the big ones, you can also win an entry ticket through our low cost qualifiers. Cash qualifiers start at just $11. DraftKings is also running weekly super-qualifiers as well, where we guarantee a large # of entries to the top finishers.
In addition to the Main Event, there will be 5 (five) $50,000 Guaranteed Prize events throughout the season, each carrying a $10,000 top prize to the winner. The first $50,000 Guaranteed Event is in WEEK 1, and has an entry fee of just $10. The other $50,000 Guaranteed Events are running in Weeks 5, 8, 11, and the week of the Championship Round in the Playoffs.
IS THERE A TOURNAMENT LEADERBOARD WITH PRIZES?
YES! The Chase Leaderboard will reward players who perform well in Chase for the Crown events. You’ll earn Leaderboard Points every time you finish in the top 50% of the field. The bigger the field, the bigger the buy in, and the better you finish - the more points you earn.
The overall top performer in the Chase for the Crown will win an all-expenses paid trip to the 2013 Super Bowl in New Orleans ($10,000 value)! The remaining Top 10 finishers on the Final Chase Leaderboard will win cash prizes as well, totaling $5,000. Each week, we will also crown a Weekly Leaderboard winner, who will receive $500 cash.
