Does DraftKings Offer a Loyalty Program?
DraftKings offers a loyalty program, that rewards players from entering paid contests. From the moment you enter your first paid contest, you earn what is called Frequent Player Points, often referred to as FPPs throughout DraftKings.
The rate at which you earn FPPs is at a 1-to-1 ratio. That means, for every $1 you spend on a paid contest entry fee, you will receive 1 FPP in return. If you spend $50 to enter a contest, you will get 50 FPPs credited to your FPP balance. If you enter a free contest, you will get 0 FPPs.
You can then use your FPPs to purchase tickets to paid contests, giving you a chance to win cash prizes again with your free loyalty points.
The higher your entry fee, or the more paid contests you enter, the quiker you’ll see your FPP Balance increase.
Completing Daily Missions for FPPs
DraftKings gives an additional way to earn FPPs even faster through “Daily Missions”. The missions are often simple to earn the FPP rewards. One of the common ones is entering a paid contest of $1 or higher. The FPPs you’re rewarded are often at a higher rate than 1-to-1 you get for paid entries. So if you play everyday, just one contest that meets the Daily Mission requirement, you will see this is the quickest way to earn FPPs.
The FPPs you earned from Daily Mission are the same as those earned through paid contests, so they will be added to the same FPP balance.
Daily Mission can only be completed once a day and usually need to be completed by Midnight EST everyday.
Buying Tickets with my FPPs
To purchase contest tickets with your FPP balance, you must go to the DraftKings’ Shop. If you are unfamiliar where this is, click on your profile in the top right, then in the drop down menu, click on the DraftKings’ shop link.
Now that you’re in the shop, you can view all the contest tickets to paid contests you can purchase with your FPP balance. The current exchange rate for $1 in contest tickets is 550 in FPPs. Tickets to paid contest start as low as $0.25, or 150 in FPPs.
These tickets to paid contests give you an opportunity to win free money. Whether you play frequently or occasionally, you can quickly turn your FPPs into another opportunity to compete again for money prizes.
How Does DraftKings Work?
DraftKings offers contest that are either free or paid. Both giving you the chance to win money prizes. In all contests, they are first come first serve so once you find one you like, it is best to get your roster in early. Once you set your roster, you will be competing against those pool of players only.
Depending on the type of contest you select, there are different scoring rules. The type of contest also affects the number of people that can finish in the payout bracket, as well as the amount of payout you will receive. For exact details about the rules and payout, make sure to read the “Contest Rules” and “Details and “scoring” tabs for each individual contest. This will also affect the strategy you use to fill out your line-up. Contests are usually 24-hours in length for most sports, while some are up to 1 week in duration.
Winning in Daily Fantasy Sports is easier than you may think, since you do not have to finish in first to win cash prizes. Depending on the type of contest you enter, you will see that some contests can have a distribution of cash prizes for nearly half the contestants, with a payout that decreases as you finish lower in the rankings.
Just like regular fantasy sports leagues, you can use your sports knowledge of players and teams to outwit other players in your contest. So make sure to study the rules and take your time to create the best roster that you feel gives you a better shot to win.
If you are new to daily fantasy sports, you can search for “Beginners” contests that allows you get your feet wet. The best thing about “Beginners” is that you are competing with similar skilled players, as this is only available to players with less than 50 contests enter.
