DSBBC: $250,000 Guaranteed DraftStreet Basketball Championship

The DraftStreet Basketball Championship is here! And the prizepool this season is mind-blowing. $250,000 will be paid out between now and March 8th, with the DSBBC Champion taking home $50,000. You can qualify for the finals of this amazing event for as little as $11, and qualifiers are running multiple times each week.


While the DraftStreet Football Championship finals will be held live in Las Vegas, DraftStreet has opted for an online finale’ for Basketball season. The DSBBC will have a 3-day online-final similar to last year’s DraftStreet Baseball Championship, with a few minor tweaks. Per usual, DraftStreet put incredible thought into the structure of this championship event. There will be 30 finalists for the DSBBC, with 3 rounds (1 round per day) until the winner is determined. It will be exciting to sweat the finals this season. If you’re not yet a member of DraftStreet, make sure to check out our site review for a 40% DraftStreet Bonus Code link.

This marks the fifth massive-prizepool event since September for the Daily Fantasy Industry, and it’s shaping up to be another epic one for Grinders to be a part of! It rewards the skilled players, and pays out a ton along the way. This drastically reduces your risk, since you can still leave with a solid profit in the event you don’t win it all. Kudos to DraftStreet for another great job of structuring a fun-to-play, fun-to-watch event with a massive prizepool. Best of luck to all Grinders in the mix.
