Opening Day is here. Usually, that means spring is here, complete with a potential for a magical Phillies ride! Instead, this year you’ll get Aaron Harang. But don’t let the Ruben behind the curtain dampen your excitement for the great American pastime. Let Draft Kings provide your entertainment.
– Both start Monday, April 6 at 1:05 PM EST
– Salary Cap Style Drafting. $50,000 to select 10 players: 8 fielders and 2 pitchers
– Roster format: 2 P, 1 C, 1 1B, 1 2B, 1 3B, 1 SS, 3 OF
And that’s where the similarities end. In the Freeroll, there is no entry fee and you can win your share of the prize money — first place wins $1,000 — as long as you finish in the top 3,845 spots. No risk at all.
But in the Moonshot, you can win much more money while the risk is still incredibly low. The entry fee is $3 (FREE if you’re a first time depositor) and you can walk away with $10,000 if you finish in first place. And if you don’t? You still get paid as long as you finish in the top 7,850 (the top 20%).
Watching the Phillies is going to be a bit of a bummer, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy all that Opening Day has to offer while trying to walk away with some cash. You can choose your lineup for the FREEROLL and MOONSHOT leagues now.
