New Improved Offers from DraftKings

Post by admin » 07 Sep 2016, 20:27

This week is a big week at DraftKings with a range of promos and contests for their UK audience.

WELCOME OFFER
This week they have changed up the welcome offer for UK customers; new DraftKings users can take advantage of four free entries when they deposit only £5 to use on any contest in the lobby.

Where to spend your entries though? Kick things off by celebrating the return of the Premier League by entering the EPL $28K Golazo contest that has a top prize of $5,000 to first place.

If NFL is more your bag, the $5M Fantasy Football Millionaire contest has a huge prize pool and dishes out $1 million to the player that finishes in first place.

FOOTBALL
DraftKings continue to see great growth in their Football product and this has fuelled growing prize pools each week; DraftKings offer the biggest prize opportunity in the space; this week users can win a share of $28,000 and for a meagre $3 entry.
