DraftKings 2016 Fantasy Hockey World Championship Qualifiers

Sport Betting Canadian Hockey MascotQualifiers for the $500,000 Fantasy Hockey World Championship begin tonight at DraftKings.  I’ve been having success with NHL fantasy at DraftKings this season and I will definitely be working hard to secure a seat in this contest.  The 2015 Fantasy Hockey World Championship at DraftKings only featured a $200,000 prize pool, so with it more than doubled this year, it’s definitely the biggest live fantasy hockey contest we’ve seen to this point in the industry.

I know a lot of my readers are also big into the daily fantasy hockey and play a lot at DraftKings, so I wanted to write up this quick post outlining some features of the DraftKings Championship.

What You Win

  • Each seat is valued at $18,000 and you also win $1000 to be put towards airfare.
  • There are 40 seats, which means of the $18,000, $12.5k goes towards the prize pool for the 2016 Fantasy Hockey Championship.
  • The other $5,500 then goes towards the package, which includes a 5-night stay in San Diego (March 16th-21st), viewing parties throughout the week and exclusive DraftKings excursions.
  • The $500,000 prize pool is broken down with first place winning $100,000 and the worst you can do is go home with a $5,000 win.

How To Win

DraftKings will be running qualifier contests for the next two months, leading up to the March 16th-21st trip dates.

Tonight, which is the first night of the qualifiers, there is one $3 and one $1000 entry contest.  Throughout the next couple of months I expect qualifiers to come in the form of $3, $5, $20, $27, $100 and $1000 buy-in contests.

The Legacy

On top of the $100,000 top prize the real allure of this contest, at least for me, is to attempt to become the Fantasy Hockey World Champion.  It has quite a nice ring to it.

So if that’s something that is of interest to you, don’t wait.  Start working on qualifying right away because there are only 40 seats available.
