DraftKings Sportsbook’s biggest NFL pools are now available to join. The contests are headlined by the $4M Pro Football Millionaire Pick ‘Em Pool and the $1M Pro Football Millionaire Survivor Pool, which both pay out $1 million to the winner. The NFL season is still a few months away, but there are limited-time early bird sign up offers now available as well. All of the relevant information can be found below!

Head over to the DraftKings Sportsbook Pools page to participate.


$4M Pro Football Millionaire Pick ‘Em

How it Works

Each week for 16 weeks, you’ll make five picks against the spread. Week 18 is excluded and there is an additional bye week for you to choose (this can be any week from Week 1 to Week 17) so there are 16 weeks of picks for 80 picks total. The winner will be the person with the most wins throughout the season, for a top prize of $1,000,000.

Scoring System

Each correct pick is worth one point (0 for an incorrect pick). All of the lines to choose from will have a half-point spread, ensuring that there won’t be any pushes — the picks will all be settled as either correct or incorrect. The leaderboard will be updated at the end of each week (Tuesday morning).

If There’s a Shortened Season

All entries will be refunded if there are less than 12 weeks in the NFL season. If at least 12 weeks of games take place, all winners will be paid as normal. If the NFL calendar is changed or shifted, the contest will proceed with the adjusted start and end dates.

Which States Can Participate

Participants located in CO, TN, VA, MI, PA, NH, NJ, and WV are allowed to play. It is not required that you reside in one of these states, but picks must be made from these locations.

Full Payout Structure

$1M Pro Football Millionaire Survivor

How it Works

Each week — for all 18 weeks — you’ll pick one team to win straight up. If you choose a losing team in any given week, you’re eliminated. The last person standing will win the $1M top prize, and if multiple people last all 18 weeks, they’ll split the prize money. You can only pick each NFL team one time during the season.

If There’s a Shortened Season

All entries will be refunded if there are less than 12 weeks in the NFL season. If at least 12 weeks of games take place, all winners will be paid as normal. If the NFL calendar is changed or shifted, the contest will proceed with the adjusted start and end dates.

Which States Can Participate

Participants located in CO, TN, VA, MI, PA, NH, NJ, and WV are allowed to play. It is not required that you reside in one of these states, but picks must be made from these locations.
