What is King of the Hill?
The premise behind King of the Hill is simple:
Day 1 and 2: – Two qualifiers will run in the DraftKings lobby. The winners of each of those qualifiers will face each other in the first King of the Hill head-to-head on Saturday, May 9th that pays $10,000 to the winner.
Day 3: The first “King of the Hill” battle will take place between the two qualifiers from Days 1 and 2 (on Saturday May 9th). The winner of that head-to-head will win $10,000 and become THE KING! Meanwhile, there will be another qualifier running on Day 3. The winner of the Day 3 qualifier will take the place of the loser, as THE CONTENDER of the head-to-head battle and fight to become the next “King of the Hill”
This process repeats itself over the course of the MLB season. If you are in the King of the Hill head-to-head and win on any given day, you get $10,000!
