How DraftKings Works
DraftKings has two game formats. The first is “Contest”, which gives you the opportunity to compete against others to win money. The second is “League”, which is good for competing in a private setting.
In the “Contest” format, you join a contest with an entry fee and compete against a limited amount of contestants. Once all entries are filled, a contest will be closed, but you will still be able to edit your lineup. Each contest will have different scoring rules, entry fees, amount of contestants and prize payouts. When you enter a contest, make sure to read the info about “Contest Rules” and the “Details & Scoring.”
If you want to play against friends for free, you can create and join a private “League”. Here you can set up scoring and other rules for your “League”. Once set up, you can email and invite them to your private “League”. Here you can compete with your friends for bragging rights.
Entering Contest for Beginners or Higher Experience Levels
If you are beginner, you can enter contests that are in the “Beginner” game type. Only people that played less than 50 contests can enter these games. In many of the contests, you do not need to have the highest score, just finish in the top bracket as describe in each contest’s “Contest Detail” tab, that shows the prize payout breakdown.
You can also enter contests that are open to a larger field. When you click a contest, you can see the entrants as well as their DraftKings’ experience by looking at their Experience Badge icon.

To differentiate big winners, there is “Big Win” (won $1,000 in at least 3 contests or won $2,500 in 5 contests), “500 Plus Big Win” (500 contests and won $1,000 in at least 3 contests / won $2,500 in 5 contests) and “1,000 Plus Big Win” (1000 (500 contests and won $1,000 in at least 3 contests / won $2,500 in 5 contests).
