Player Rewards Updates

After four years we’ve learned a lot about how players want to be rewarded for playing on DraftKings. To date, fewer than 1 in 10 of our players have used our Frequent Player Point (FPP) program which awards points that can be redeemed for contest tickets and cool gear in our Store. We think we can do much better. We’re announcing an exciting new series of player rewards to get everyone in on the rewards action – and it all starts April 1st!

You can now earn extra FPPs by completing daily special missions, gain access to over $150,000 in monthly exclusive free contests, and play in Flash Bonus contests containing extra prizes – PLUS you’ll still earn 1 FPP per $1 in entry fees. (Previously, our program solely awarded ~3 FPPs per $1 in entry fees.)

These additions will give all of our players the opportunity to enjoy even more rewards on DraftKings. We look forward to growing this program in the upcoming months and years as we continue to provide the best experience in Daily Fantasy Sports!

FAQs:

Q: What are Frequent Player Points (FPPs)?

FPPs are points earned for playing on DraftKings that can be redeemed in our Store for contest tickets and cool DraftKings apparel and merchandise.  FPPs are earned by playing paid contests and/or completing missions.

Q: Does this impact FPPs that I already have?

No.  The points that you already have will remain completely intact, and the prices for items in the VIP Store will not change as a part of this redesign.

Q: When will the contest entry FPP rate change?

All contests posted going forward will use the new rate of 1 FPP to 1 dollar entry fee.

Q: Will this change the number of FPPs awarded for contests that have already been posted?

No.  Contests that were posted prior to this announcement will award the same amount of FPPs as originally posted.

 Q: How does the new Missions platform work?

Check out our Missions overview page for more information.

Q: These missions don’t seem like they’re for me.  Can I get different missions?

We understand tailoring missions to individuals will result in a much better experience for our players, and we plan to evolve the platform accordingly.  In the meantime, we will be posting a variety of missions to keep our players challenged, so make sure to check back each day!

Q: Will these changes affect how my Deposit Bonus will release?

Your deposit bonus will continue to release at the same rate (or faster) as it has in the past, relative to entry fees paid into contests.

To reflect the change in FPPs earned for entering paid contests, we have increased the rate at which FPPs release deposit bonuses.  Previously, deposit bonuses released in increments of $1 for every 100 FPPs earned through contest entry.  With this change, deposit bonuses will now release in increments of $1 for every 25 FPPs earned through contest entry.

Please note that FPPs earned through missions will not count toward deposit bonus release.

Q: Are my rewards better or worse with these changes?
