Approximate Retail Value of the Prize: $1,800.

The exact nature and duration of the ceremonial first pitch experience and batting practice viewing experience shall be determined by DraftKings and Houston Astros, LLC (“Houston Astros”) at their sole discretion and subject to availability and the rules and regulations of the Houston Astros.
In the case of a tie for the winning spot in the Contest the winner will be the DraftKings Player with the higher single-player fantasy points result for each drafted player in the lineup. For example, if DraftKings Player A and DraftKings Player B tied in the daily game, and Player A’s highest fantasy point scoring player was Max Scherzer with 22 fantasy points, and Player B’s highest fantasy point scoring player was Johnny Cueto with 20 fantasy points, then Player A would be judged the winner.

In the event of two identical rosters, the DraftKings Player that submitted the winning lineup first will be deemed the winner.
