Baseball is back in like three weeks, it’s NBA and NHL Championship Week here at DraftKings, the PGA tour is heating up, and there is some college basketball tournament starting up just two days from now. And also soccer. It’s almost too much to keep track of, so the Playbook is here to help. It’s a great day to be alive. Good luck.

The PGA offers up a chance at some of the most captivating fantasy action of the summer, including it’s very own Millionaire Maker coming up in April to coincide with the season’s first major. But don’t wait until then to get your practice rounds in – building these lineups presents some unique challenges, and you want to be prepared for the big one. And if you want to skip a chance at the big payout this weekend and instead concentrate your efforts on as many satellites as possible to get yourself a few shots at a million bucks, who could blame you?
What: $250,000 NBA Thunderdome
When: April 4th!
The Thunderdome itself is a pricey ticket – it’s not cheap to compete. But it’s the next shot at a big prize on the horizon, if your focus is on the NBA, and there are still cheaper satellites running between now and then. Good luck!
What: NHL $50K Top Shelf
When: April 4th!
The Championship passes, and just like that, there is another great chance to capitalize on your knowledge of hockey, right around the corner. There are satellites running where you can win your way in, so you don’t even need to pay through the nose for your seat – you just need to be right – a couple of times. Good luck.
When: Sunday, May 24th
If you love fantasy soccer, or big prizes, you’re going to love this one. There has never been a better chance to cash in on your soccer knowledge, and all you have to do is be right twice, and you get get in on the action cheaply, by winning one of the many satellites running between now and then.
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.
