DraftDay Offers PokerTips Readers $100 NFL Fantasy Sports Freeroll

Promotions, 2011-10-25, by Ozone

The following promotion is only available for residents of Canada and the United States.

The people who brought the poker world the training site CardRunners have launched a new site called DraftDay.

DraftDay is a daily fantasy sports (DFS) site where you can legally compete for real-money prizes in one-day fantasy sports leagues.

Most of us are acquainted with traditional fantasy sports leagues where you draft a team that you're stuck with for the season. DraftDay is different in that you only have a team for a single day. So you can play when it's convenient for you and not have to worry about constant upkeep on a fledgling season-long roster.

Here's an example of how it works:

- 10 players come together for a $10 buy-in NFL league.
- Each player is given $100,000 in fantasy salary dollars with which to draft a standard NFL fantasy roster (1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 D/ST, and 1 K).
- Marque players like Tom Brady might cost around $18,000 while scrubs like Carson Palmer cost around $7,000.
- After carefully constructing your roster, you pit your hopes on them for real-money payouts just like a poker sit-'n'-go for only that weekend or day's games.

DraftDay is running two cool promotions, one of them exclusively for PokerTips readers:

1. Create a roster for free through their Perfect Lineup promotion. If you predict the highest scoring players at every position for that week's NFL action, you win $1,000,000. Understandably, this is a very hard thing to do, but the cool part is that DraftDay gives out $400 in prizes to the 25 highest scoring rosters for the week.

2. Enter a $100 freeroll exclusively for PokerTips readers for this weekend's (10/30/11) NFL action. After you visit the site and create an account, click on "NFL" then "Private". Look for the 3-letter league named after the acronym for this site (I'll give you a hint: it starts with a P, ends with an O, and has a T in the middle). Sign up for that league using the password ptipsftw and create your NFL roster where you'll compete with other PokerTips readers for $100 in prizes. You can then use those winnings to enter into DraftDay's real-money games. For you hockey fans, they will be rolling out NHL leagues very soon!

If you choose to deposit at DraftDay, they will give you a 20% first-time deposit bonus. The bonus is released as 50% rakeback on fees you pay when playing in the site's games.

You can also check out the DraftDay blog for tips, strategy, and information about DFS and follow them on Twitter for news about latest promotions and player information.

Finally, check out this thread on PokerTips for strategy and discussion about the games at DraftDay where you'll also find a little challenge being thrown down by yours truly.
