DraftKings Sportsbook is gearing up for plenty of NFL action this year and they’re gearing up for a massive survivor pool that will see the winner cash a cool $100 million. The $1 Million NFL Survivor Pool will pay out up to $100 million in prizes with the biggest winning taking home that $1 million.
That’s right. DraftKings Sportsbook is giving away $100 million in prizes on a survivor pool that’s free to enter. And because this is a free-to-enter contest, it’s available to residents in states where sports betting is not yet legalized.
Survivor pools are one of the best things about the NFL season and it’s safe to expect DraftKings Sportsbook to deliver a great contest. DraftKings always has a number of pools for users that included contests on UFC, NHL, NBA, MLB, and even the presidential election. NFL is still the king when it comes to sports betting and survival pools reign supreme during football season.
How To Play DraftKings $1 Million NFL Survivor Pool
This pool is free to enter so you don’t even need to have any money deposited into your account to start. Once you have an account with DraftKings Sportsbook, it’s easy to join the $1 Million NFL Survivor Pool.
- Pick one team every week to win (no spreads involved).
- Picks must be made by 1 p.m. ET every Sunday (Thursday picks must be in prior to game time).
- If your team wins, you “survive” and advance to next week.
- Picks cannot be repeated. (i.e. If you take the Patriots in Week 1, you cannot take them in Weeks 2-17).
- After Week 17, the last user standing wins.
- If there are multiple users left after Week 17, the prize pool will be split.
There are a few different strategies to employ in an NFL survivor pool. Some people like to take the best teams early and just take things on a week-to-week basis. Others like to hone in on one terrible team and pick against that team every week.
