With one Millionaire Maker in the books, and another one coming up in just a few short days, DraftKings is making millionaires left and right. See what I did there? For $27, it is hard not to take a shot (all it takes is once, right?), but don’t forget about all the other action going on, because while the Millionaire Maker might be your best shot at getting rich, it’s probably not your best shot at building that bankroll. Good luck.
