Contest Spotlight


NFL Survivor Tournament
  Las Vegas isn't just for high rollers when FanDuel's running the show! Their $250,000 Survivor is a small stakes player's dream come true with a $5 entry fee and $25,000 lined up for first place. All finalists will be flown out to Las Vegas in style to compete in the live final at the Cosmopolitan. On October 4th, the rounds begin. Enter Round 1 for just $5 per entry and if you finish in the top 43,000 players in Round 1, then you'll advance to Round 2. Keep advancing to the final round and you'll win a trip for two to Las Vegas!


Footballguys FanDuel Championship
  It’s just $10 to play and the top-500 (out of 1,130) double up their cash each week. Plus Footballguys' own Joe Bryant, David Dodds, and Sigmund Bloom will be entering the contest too. And if you finish ahead of those three, you’ll be playing in a final round in Week 11 that offers $40,000 in FREE prizes. You do not want to miss out on this contest.


Sunday Million
  FanDuel's largest prize pool is once again the Sunday Million, but that doesn't mean the prize pool has stayed the same. Instead, that prize pool has grown from $5 Million to $6 Million. And the best part is that it's still just $25 to enter and first place still wins $1 Million. All that extra money that got added to the prize pool trickles down and will hit the pockets of the top-55,300 entries. As a warning, this contest filled last week, so not everyone was able to enter.


Sunday Rush
  The Sunday Rush keeps getting bigger and better! It's still just $5 to enter, but the total prizes has grown from $1.5 Million to $2 Million and the first place prize has risen from $100,000 to $150,000. And all you need to do is finish among the top-90,800 entries to win cash. This contest has filled early every week, so be sure to enter sooner than later.


World Fantasy Football Championship
  $12 Million on the line, $3 Million to the World Champ, and all 120 finalist get paid. It's not just fantasy football. Make it to Vegas for FanDuel's World Fantasy Football Championship and you're part of history. The world will be at your fingertips during a weekend that you'll never forget.
