World Series of Poker Champ Greg Merson Competes At DraftKings.com
Play Daily Fantasy Sports Tournaments For Cash
When he’s not tearing up his opponents on the poker tables, World Series of Poker champion Greg Merson competes at DraftKings.com, playing daily fantasy sports contests for huge guaranteed cash prizes.
Merson also enjoys the comfort and security of playing on a 100 percent safe and legal website. In 2006, the U.S. government classified fantasy sports as a game of skill, ensuring that DraftKings can offer a superior gaming experience without the worry of shady software or slow payouts. Player deposits are instant and secure, while player cash withdrawals are quick and easy.
There are a few frustrating things about playing traditional fantasy sports, and one of the worst is the long-term time commitment. By mid-season, many players want to quit as their teams drop out of contention.
With DraftKings.com, time is no longer an issue. Drafting your team is easy and can be done in as little as 2 minutes. Each day, you draft a new team for each competition.
Players can compete 1 on 1 with other DraftKings users, or take on a bigger pool of players in tournaments that boast big fields and even bigger prizes. Contest buy-ins range from just $1 to $200, offering something for bankrolls of all sizes. Much like poker, players can also use Steps Tournaments to satellite their way into bigger buy-in contests.
At DraftKings, players can compete in NFL, NBA, NCAA Football contests. College basketball will be available soon. With their specialized contest lobby, users can easily sort between sit-n-gos, multi-entry, steps, qualifiers, winner take all and double up tournaments.
Right now, you can start qualifying for the NFL Week 16 main event, boasting a guaranteed prize pool of $250,000, with $100,000 set aside for the eventual winner. DraftKings is running a $1 Qualifier for entry into this contest.
