TIEBREAKERS

If one or more DraftKings Players tie in a Qualifier, in which the tie determines who wins the “ticket” to the FBWC Contest, there will be a tiebreaker playoff contest between the tied DraftKings Players, to determine the Qualifier Winner. The scheduling of the tiebreaker playoff contest will be solely determined by DraftKings.

MAXIMUM NUMBER OF ENTRIES

Once a Player has accumulated five (5) entries to the FBWC Contest, the Player is no longer allowed to win additional entries into the FBWC Contest from Qualifiers. If a player chooses to play in additional FBWC qualifier contests after they have won their fifth entry to FBWC and they happen to win an additional qualifier, they will receive $0 for their additional entry and the ticket will be awarded to second place. If a player wins multiple qualifier contests that were live at the time their fifth entry was accumulated, they will receive the cash value of their additional qualifiers. DraftKings will rerun those additional qualifiers. First degree relatives living in the same household are subject to the same max entry cap for the Contest. For example, a husband and wife with separate usernames can only have five (5) combined entries to the FBWC Contest.

Fantasy Basketball World Championship

The 100 DraftKings Players that advance to the Fantasy Basketball World Championship will draft lineups for the online final on August 17-18, 2020 (the “FBWC Contest Day”).
