Our good friends at DraftKings are making it easier than ever to pad your summer fun budget. They’re even giving you a free $5.00 contest entry, which you can turn into $125,000. That’s right, any first-time user who deposits $5.00 or more will be automatically given a free ticket into a $500,000 Midsummer Classic qualifier where the top prize is $125,000.
We’re talking about a real chance at real money here. The winner of DraftKings’ latest baseball contest walked away with a cool $20,000. You could use that type of dough.
You don’t have to be a crusty, old-school baseball guy to take home the prize either. Just select a team of players under a predetermined salary cap, sit back, and hope for the best. The thrill of victory and agony of defeat is infinitely more tangible when you’ve got some skin in the game.
What are you waiting for? Take them up on their offer and turn up the heat.
