IMPORTANT! PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THESE CONTEST RULES (hereinafter, “Contest Rules”) BEFORE ENTERING THE NBA $200K SHOWDOWN SHOWCASE AS THESE RULES AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS.
DraftKings is pleased to announce an exciting new contest, the NBA $200K SHOWDOWN SHOWCASE (the “Contest”), exclusively for the 100 DraftKings Players who qualify by finishing first in at least one (1) NBA Showdown Qualifier Contests and receive an entry ticket (the “Entry” or “Entries”) (the “Contestants”). Contestants will then compete in the Contest and will have the opportunity to win a Prize (defined below).
PRIZES IN THE NBA $200K SHOWDOWN SHOWCASE
The 100 Contestants will compete in the NBA $200K Showdown Showcase held on December 25, 2019 and featuring the results of the NBA game between LAL and LAC. The 100 Contestants will win prizes associated with their final standings in the Contest (“Prizes”) as outlined below:
The Contest will begin on December 25th, 2019 at the start of the game and continue until after the game is completed (“Contest Day”). Previous to the Contest Day, there will be regular NBA DFS contests chosen by DraftKings where Players may gain Entry to the NBA $200K Showdown Showcase Contest by winning and subsequently, earning tickets (“NBA Showdown Qualifier Contests”). Contestants may earn up to a maximum of three (3) tickets to the Contest.
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF ENTRIES
Once a Player has accumulated three (3) Entries and becomes a Contestant to the NBA $200K Showdown Showcase Contest, the Player is no longer allowed to win additional Entries into the NBA $200K Showdown Showcase Contest from NBA Showdown Qualifier Contests. If a player chooses to play in additional NBA Showdown Qualifier Contests after they have won their third Entry to NBA $200K Showdown Showcase and they happen to win an additional NBA Showdown Qualifier Contest, they will receive $0 for their additional entry and the ticket will be awarded to second place.
If a Player wins multiple NBA Showdown Qualifier Contests at the time their third Entry was accumulated, they will receive the cash value of their additional NBA Showdown Qualifier Contests. DraftKings will rerun those additional NBA Showdown Qualifier Contests.
FIRST DEGREE RELATIVES
First degree relatives living in the same household are subject to the same max entry cap for the Contests in the Contest Series. For example, a husband and wife with separate usernames can only have one (1) combined entries to each Contest in the Contest Series.
If one or more DraftKings Players tie in a NBA Showdown Qualifier Contest, in which the tie determines who wins an Entry to the NBA $200K Showdown Showcase Contest, there will be a tiebreaker playoff contest between the tied DraftKings Players, to determine the NBA Showdown Qualifier Contest winner who will become a Qualifier. The scheduling of the tiebreaker playoff contest will be solely determined by DraftKings.
If two or more players tie for 1st place in the NBA $200K Showdown Showcase Contest, they will split the first place prize and second place prize and all other prizes up to the amount tied for. For example, if there is a four person tie for first place, the four players will split prizes 1-4. This will apply if two or more players tie for any position.
RULES OF PLAY
Players must be 18 (19+ in Nebraska and Alabama and 21+ in Massachusetts) years of age or older and a legal resident of the United States. Entrants who have not met the age requirements will be removed from the Contest. Prior to any prizes being paid out, all ages of any winners must be verified with DraftKings.
