DraftKings Boosts Its Fantasy Esports Offerings
When the COVID-19 pandemic brought sports to a halt, DraftKings used its innovative spirit to add more esports games to its Daily Fantasy Sports roster. Daily Fantasy League of Legends has been a DraftKings staple since 2015, but in March 2020, DraftKings launched three new esports — Call of Duty, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), and Rocket League.
Call of Duty
Get ready for war. Daily Fantasy Call of Duty contests let you melee the moolah. Classic salary cap lineup construction consists of five players and a team. One of these six roster slots is your captain, who costs 1.5x in salary but returns 1.5x in fantasy points. As the pros compete in best-of-five matches, you’ll compete to rack up points for their kills, bomb plants/diffuses, captures, and more. The higher you score, the higher you’ll camp on the leaderboard. So, aim down your sights on some cold hard cash.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO)
Daily Fantasy CS:GO is the greatest thing to come out of North American CS. Draft six players, one as your captain, as they spray, clutch, defuse their way through a 30-round map. You’ll score points for frags, assists, clutches, and more. Bonus points are awarded for rounds not played and match sweeps. Finish high on the leaderboard to win cash prizes.
Looking to focus on just one match? DraftKings also offers Single-Game Showdown contests for CS:GO. All the same rules apply except you’re just drafting four players — two captains and two flex.
Rocket your way to cash prizes in Daily Fantasy Rocket League contests. Draft four players — two captains and two flex. Score points for each shot, goals, save, assist, and more. A bunch of bonus categories give you even more shots at a huge score. At the end of the action, you’ll be turning GG’s into real G’s.
Largest Daily Fantasy Esports payouts in the industry
Since March 2020, DraftKings has paid out over $100 million in esports contests. Compared to other competition within the Daily Fantasy Sports industry, prizes in DraftKings’ esports contests are much higher.
