You can win $1 billion by drafting the perfect lineup in our FREE $100k contest

Please accept our Official Challenge Rules

Check out the Official Challenge Rules.

$1 billion is a lot of money.

We anticipate you have a lot of questions.

What's the Billion Dollar Lineup?

It’s the lineup that scores the most DraftKings fantasy points that could possibly be scored within the salary cap and position requirements. The perfect lineup will be determined by calculating all possible lineup combinations for the NFL Week 1 player pool that fit DraftKings lineup requirements, and the highest scoring out of all possible lineups will be the perfect lineup.

Scoring higher than all other DK users may not be enough to win unless your lineup scores the most fantasy points that could possibly be scored out of all possible lineup combinations. For clarity, it is possible that no DK user will draft the perfect lineup and therefore no DK user will be eligible for the prize. For tiebreaker rules and other conditions, please see the Official Rules.

How do I enter?

Create or sign in to your DraftKings account. Once you’re in, draft a lineup from the FREE $100k contest player pool that fills all the position requirements and stays within the $50,000 salary cap. Submit your lineup before the games kick off at 1PM EST on September 10, 2017. One entry per user. Please see the Official Rules for additional details.

How do I win?

Watch as your players rack up points (hopefully lots and lots of them) throughout the day. If you’ve got the perfect lineup, you could take home the $1 billion prize.

Am I eligible?

To get in the game and win $1 billion, you must have a valid DraftKings account, be 18 years of age (19+ in AL and NE, 21+ in MA) and be located in the United States, District of Columbia, Germany, the United Kingdom, or Canada (excluding the Province of Quebec). Additional eligibility restrictions apply. Please see the Official Rules for details.

I usually can’t play DraftKings where I live. Why can I play in the Billion Dollar Lineup challenge?

In certain states (AL, AZ, HI, ID, IA, LA, MT, NV & WA), DraftKings doesn’t offer paid entry fantasy sports contests. However, eligible residents in all 50 states and the District of Columbia are allowed to play free DraftKings contests. The Billion Dollar Lineup challenge is not a standalone contest but will run in connection with the free $100,000 NFL Week 1 contest. You will be prompted to enter into the Billion Dollar Lineup challenge before submitting your lineup. Prizing for the $100,000 NFL Contest will be available on the draft screen.

Can someone actually win this?

This is the most challenging promotion we’ve ever offered. You aren’t going to win a billion dollars by drafting a good lineup or even a great one. To win $1 billion, you’ll need to draft the “perfect lineup.” Anyone who plays fantasy football knows how tough the challenge really is. This promotion can be won, but to conquer this ultimate test of skill, you’ll need to be perfect.

Insured by top rated insurers in the world with A or A+ ratings or better and market cap of over $250 Billion combined.
