StatHero Promo Code

Love daily fantasy sports AND survivor pools? StatHero, the newest DFS platform, is for you. Combining the best of fantasy sports and survivor contests, compete against StatHero in smaller, multi-day daily fantasy survivor pools. No need to spend hours on research to beat thousands of other lineups, including some of the best fantasy players in the world — at StatHero just pick a sport, make a lineup, and survive by beating StatHero head-to-head! Not only do you avoid the sharks that typically lurk in DFS lobbies and tournaments, but the multi-day survivor pool provides both instant gratification and an extended sweat. Here’s how the game works.

What is StatHero?

StatHero is a survivor-based DFS hybrid contest, where you compete against StatHero’s team and no one else’s. Lineups at StatHero consist of only 4-5 players. Simplifying the DFS lineup-building even more, you challenge StatHero by building your lineups from one team from a particular sport. There is an exception, however. In Round 1, lineups consist of 5 players, four from one team plus a bonus player from a different team. Once you advance to the second round, your lineups will consist of four players all from the same team.

This means you’ll want to choose teams from games with high point totals. Now let’s talk survivor pools, and more specifically, StatHero’s survivor pool structure(s).

What is a Survivor Pool?

You already know what DFS is, but you might not be familiar with survivor pools. Sometimes referred to as Knockout or Elimination pools, the concept is simple: the goal is to survive from one round to the next. To survive your team needs to score more points than the team posted by StatHero (the “House”).

Normally survivor pools last months and months, if not a full season. With StatHero, you can enter contests daily and on average a contest last 9 days or less.

StatHero contests begin with a certain amount of people, and those who fail to beat StatHero are eliminated; those who beat StatHero advance to the next round. It’s that simple. Beat StatHero, you pocket some cash, and you survive to play again.

As the survivor pool gets smaller each subsequent round, payouts get larger until only one person is left.

Does StatHero win money by beating me? Nope. The site only takes a one-time flat commission from each initial entry. No fees are added after the first round, so outside of the initial commission fee, all money goes to players.

When do I get paid out? One of the best parts about playing on StatHero is that you get at least part of your entry back as soon as you advance past the first round. So not only is there that instant gratification, but you also have something to look forward to the next day (and hopefully the next few days after that).

What if StatHero beats everyone? If StatHero takes out the entire pool in a given round, the pot will be split amongst those eliminated.

And if we tie? If a lineup ties with StatHero, then that lineup is eliminated. The good news is that StatHero will show you their team pick before you make yours.

Tell me more about payouts. StatHero splits the entry fees into two buckets. Half is designated as a final prize to the last remaining survivor. The other half is designated for round-by-round prize pools. So let’s say there’s a 200-player contest. If 50 of the 200 players are eliminated in Round 1, the 150 survivors split the round 1 prize pool. As the survivor pool gets smaller each round, payouts increase.

What if I want to split the pot? StatHero gives you that option, too. If you’re in the final 10% of survivors, the remaining players can vote to split the pot with a unanimous vote. If it’s not unanimous then the contest continues until one contest is left standing.
