MMA $300K KNOCKOUT KING TERMS & CONDITIONS

CONTEST DESCRIPTION: DraftKings is pleased to announce an exciting new contest, the MMA $300K Knockout King (the “Contest”), exclusively for DraftKings Players.

MAXIMUM NUMBER OF ENTRIES

Once a Player has accumulated three (3) entries to the $300K Knockout King Contest, the Player is no longer allowed to win additional entries into the $300K Knockout King Contest from Qualifiers. If a player chooses to play in additional $300K Knockout King qualifier contests after they have won their third entry to $300K Knockout King 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 at the time their third entry was accumulated, they will receive the cash value of their additional qualifiers. DraftKings will rerun those additional qualifiers.

QUALIFIERS

If one or more DraftKings Players tie in a Qualifier, in which the tie determines who wins the “ticket” to the $300K Knockout King 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.

ROUNDS IN THE $300K KNOCKOUT KING

Round 1

The 100 Qualifiers will compete in Round 1 of the $300K Knockout King by drafting lineups on a date to be determined later by DraftKings. The top 50 finishers will advance to round 2 of the $300K Knockout King. If one or more DraftKings Players tie for the 50th spot, there will be a tiebreaker playoff contest between the tied DraftKings Players, to determine who advances. The scheduling of the tiebreaker playoff contest will be solely determined by DraftKings.

Round 2

The 50 DraftKings Players that advance beyond Round 1 will compete in Round 2 of the $300K Knockout King by drafting lineups on a date to be determined later by DraftKings. The top 25 finishers will advance to round 3 of the $300K Knockout King. If one or more DraftKings Players tie for the 25th position, there will be a tiebreaker playoff contest between the tied DraftKings Players, to determine who advances. The scheduling of the tiebreaker playoff contest will be solely determined by DraftKings.

Round 3 (Final Round)

The 25 DraftKings Players that advance to the Final Round will draft lineups on a date to be determined later by DraftKings. In the event of a tie for any position, DraftKings’ standard tiebreaker rules apply.

First Place Winnings

The first place winner will receive the $100,000 top prize. In the event of a tie, there will be a tiebreaker (run in DraftKings sole discretion) to determine a first-place winner. The first-place winner, as decided by the tiebreaker, will win the Grand Prize.
