What: DraftKings and Poker
When: All Spring and Summer Long
Wait, you like daily fantasy sports, and you like poker? Well, last season, DraftKings sent 12 players on all-expense paid VIP trips to World Poker Tour Tournaments. Sound interesting? This year, that number will be over 40, culminating with one lucky player’s trip to compete in the World Series of Poker 2015 Main Event, in Las Vegas. Curious yet? Well, long before the WSOP Main Event, there is money on the tables at other poker tourneys, all over the country, all the time. So get in on the action – start by trying to win your way into a seat at the WPT event in Los Angeles, in just a few short weeks. With satellites and qualifiers running constantly, you could win the $10,000 buy-in you need to compete, and the luxurious accommodations you’ll need to be at the top of your game (and you’ll win DFS and poker bragging rights simultaneously – what could be better?)
But if you’re on our site, and looking for some action, it doesn’t matter if one of our big promotional tournaments is going on – every single day, there is plenty of daily sports for everyone, whether you love to watch the hoops or hockey, soccer or golf, or even MMA.
