DRAFTKINGS CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES EVENTS
There are three primary contests tied to this fall’s DraftKings Championship Series as part of this site’s online sportsbook.
The first event is the Pro Football $4 Million Pick’em Tournament. This contest has become known as “the world’s largest online pick’em tournament” in the sports betting industry.
The entry fee is $1,500 with a guaranteed first-place payout of $1 million. Another $3 million in guaranteed prize money is up for grabs. This is the ultimate test of anyone’s pro football handicapping skills.
PRO FOOTBALL $4M PICK'EM TOURNAMENT DETAILS
This contest covers the 2021 regular season schedule from Weeks 1 through Week 17.
Each week of the contest you will pick five NFL teams to win against the spread. Each contestant’s top 16 weeks of picks count towards the final score. This allows for one miss or bye during the first 17 weeks of the season.
The contestant with the most winning picks pockets the $1 million first prize. The rest of the prize money is distributed among the other top 135 finishers.
As a bonus, any player getting all five picks right in a single week will earn a $100 DraftKings free bet.
The next DraftKings Championship Series event is the $1 Million Pro Football Millionaire Survivor. This event has grown to become the largest online survivor pool.
The entry fee is $333 with the grand prize set at $1 million. This is a winner-take-all format with all ties splitting the money evenly.
This contest covers the entire NFL regular season. Each week, contestants have to pick one NFL team to win its game straight-up. If that team wins, they advance to the next round. If that team loses, that contestant is out of the competition.
The key rule to remember is that any of the 32 NFL teams can only be used once as a weekly pick.
$1.25M MILLIONAIRE POOL
The final event for this season’s DraftKings Championship Series is the $1.25M Millionaire Pool. There is a $25 entry fee to join this contest with an Oct. 10 deadline.
Each week of the NFL season starting Oct. 10, contestants will have to submit their picks for the straight-up winner of 10 designated games. Points are awarded for each correct pick.
Cash prizes are awarded based on total points earned at the season’s end. The grand prize is $1 million. The remaining cash prizes are awarded to the next 100 participants with the most points.

WHY IS THE 2021 DRAFTKINGS CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES WORTH COMPETING IN?

The available prize money alone is a compelling reason to enter any or all of these Championship Series events. Millions of dollars in prize money is guaranteed to the top contestants in each event.
