Draftkings PLayer First Initiative


As the leader in daily fantasy sports, we place an importance on listening to our valued players. We are proud
to announce our newest product features, applicable across all sports, that improve the DraftKings experience.

New Updates


Enhanced Contest Eligibility

All low entry fee contests are available to everyone except the highest-volume DraftKings players.
The highest-volume players are ineligible to enter contests if the entry fee is less than $3.
They are also ineligible to enter contests when the entry fee is less than $5 if the prize pool
is less than $25,000 guaranteed.

Multi-Entry Limit

All contests with an entry fee less than $5 are 20 entries max.


Based on feedback from the player community, we also offer "mini-MAX" contests at
low entry fees. These will allow players to experience the excitement of entering
up to 150 lineups in a single contest.
