    Join DraftKings where it all started, in the heart of Boston for a special 3-night VIP trip. Qualifiers will get the opportunity to hangout at the DK office, meet the founders, relax in 5-star accommodations, enjoy a Red Sox game from a luxury suite at historic Fenway Park, and compete for a $50,000 top prize on the roof deck at one of Boston’s most popular sports bars. Overall, not a bad long weekend.

    Almost forgot to mention the best part, you can qualify starting tomorrow night (5/19) for only $27!

    Check out the King of Boston Promo Page to learn more.

    Looks like a great tournament but that’s pretty weak to schedule on the same day as another live event. I thought you guys were beyond this after last year. It would be one thing if you announced it the same time Fanduel announced the Playboy but to wait 2 months is wrong.

    Contest A – 100k Top Prize, Playboy models, California.

    Contest B – 50k Top Prize, Sports bar, Massachusetts.

    Is this really a debate on which people would choose to attend given the choice?

    Haha I hear ya but that’s really not the point. 50k top prize in a 12 person tourney with a great weekend experience is a very cool tourney. More about the tit for tat and how easily it could be avoided. Considering DK took the“high road” last year just find it funny that it is starting again.

    Unfortunately as the live event schedule continues to grow for both experiences and events with live GPPs there is going to be overlap between the various sites. The fact is that there were not very many weekends that we could achieve this goal (having an opportunity to attend a red sox game and then play the red sox in the game set the next day) and we simply have to accept that in all likelihood people going to other events will not want to participate in this specific promotion.

    This is quite a bit different than other situations where both events were qualifying at the same time as qualifying for PB is 90% complete and for the most part the people who have failed to qualify can go for the king of boston and those that have won their way in will choose to avoid this one contest. In the end we don’t expect more than a few dozen players to be unable to participate in this promotion as a result.

    I understand that there are many who have qualified for PB who are frustrated here but we plan to continue offering a packed calender of trips and experiences over the course of the year for you.

    Thanks for posting, Jon.

    When I first heard of this promotion, I didn’t read it as direct competition with the Playboy Mansion. It seemed like another opportunity to qualify for a great live experience. DraftKings has been running similar promotions for a while now, like Tiger Jam last weekend, the live Preakness/Derby events, the “throw a first pitch” contest Jason Robins mentioned on CNBC, and others. If anything, the fact that it’s in Boston makes it likely they’ll run this contest again on a different date if it’s popular. I think it’s great to see more options.

    +1 on this, as the industry continues to grow live events are going to continue to pop up which is great. Inevitably there will be overlap.

    As a side note, Tiger Jam was an awesome event.

    Definitely going after this one, I’ve always wanted to go to Fenway. Does the winner get to spend a night with Ethan??

    Ethan’s parents’ house is an exquisite, quaint BnB accommodation. Highly recommend, and should definitely be included in the DK package. — Just don’t dunk on the basketball hoop like @Riley did. It’s prone to exploding into 2 pieces, which subsequently unleashes the wasp nest housed inside it into a fury, chasing all guests up-and-down the driveway. — Overall rating: 4.5 stars out of 5.
