RotoGrinders King of Winter
The year is almost at an end, but before we say goodbye to 2017 – let’s crown a King!
RotoGrinders is partnering up with DraftKings to bring you a special seasonal event! With $8,000 (DraftKings dollars) in added prizes, your lineups will be put to the test against your competitors, with the top DFS player earning the title of the King of Winter!
Here’s how you can enter:
The $8,000 in added DraftKings dollars for this event will be distributed as follows:
Each day there will be a designated King of Winter contest. The contests will be:
|December 23||NFL||$1M Saturday Championship Kickoff||$8|
|December 24||NFL||$1.5M Santa’s Eight Reindeer Special||$8|
|December 25||NBA||$10,000 NBA Christmas Special||FREE!|
How to Play
The King of Winter promo is open exclusively to RotoGrinders members. In order to participate:
1. You MUST have your DraftKings screen name in your Grinders Profile by the end of each contest.
2. Play in each King of Winter event. Your top finish in each contest will automatically accumulate points towards the King of Winter leaderboard, assuming you completed Step 1 above and have your DK screen name added to your profile here on RotoGrinders.
Our scoring will be based on percentile finish in each contest. Not playing in any of the 3 contests will give you a lower score than being in the “lowest” percentile, so be sure to enter into each of the contests to maximize your overall score!
*Your results will only be added to the leaderboard if you add your DraftKings screen name to your RotoGrinders profile, so make sure you’re all set before the first contest!
**Full-time RotoGrinders employees are ineligible for the added DraftKings dollar prizes.
Each participant’s top finish (yes, you can multi-enter) will be scored with its exact percentile in that contest. This will help us normalize variations in contest sizes and scoring.
The person with the highest average percentile across contests wins.
Please note that we reserve the right to correct any scoring or display issues throughout the contest
Here’s an example of the scoring process so you have a better idea of how your results impact your overall score:
Player X finishes 182nd out of 143,750. We calculate the percentile finish using the formula:
Percentile = 100 – (place_finished) / entrants x 100)
Player X’s result is the 99.8734th percentile.
We repeat this calculation for each of the 3 contests and then get an average percentile score to determine the final overall percentile score. The player with the highest score after all 3 contests is the winner!
A special thanks to DraftKings for partnering up with us for this seasonal event!
