    I am entering these things like crazy after seeing who some of these people are picking in the early rounds. Like Brady in the 3rd.

    YES!!! Was going to ask the same question.

    Is that Free ticket contingent on entering something else first? I thought I saw that originally, could be wrong though. Yet I have the ticket regardless.

    I had the same problem on the App. But I was able to on the desktop. Went to Ticket and clicked on it. took me to the NFL page. Hit enter with tickets and it showed their. Hope that helps.

    I’ve already maxed the $3 over the last month or so but yea my free $20 tourney was super soft, and it makes me want to enter more but it’s not in my bankroll. Had a guy last night draft ceedee lamb 6th overall then rivers rd 2 and proceeded to draft 4 qbs by the end of round 6.

    Welp now it looks like the $20 milly best ball will get close to filling after all those free entries they gave to people. Kinda messed up many getting a free ticket while others pay with their hard earned cash.

    Must be some sort of collusion to draft like that.

    Many entered yesterday with cash for the Week 1 Countdown promo yesterday which gives you a free $20 only if the Thursday game goes over 45.5 points. DK has to have a massive liability on that one with how many entered yesterday. I know I only entered another $20 entry yesterday for this promo and the chance to get a free $20 ticket. I have 3 entries in now as I took an offer a few weeks ago to enter the $20 Best Ball Milly maker for a free 2nd entry. So have $40 cash in for my 3 entries with a chance to pick up another $20 free ticket if the Thursday game goes over.

    So the optimal strategy is just to wait to draft til the last few days then DK will flood you with offers…….. Ok got it.

    How do you guys get all these free entries. I never get free ones

    Thanks, though I’m still getting the same problem. When I click on the contest it only gives me the option to enter for $20…doesn’t say enter with ticket 🤷‍♂️

    These offers are available to everyone unless you already have maxed it out with 150 entries. Just watch the promo page as they pop up all the time and you can’t blame people for taking advantage of offers when they are presented as otherwise I would have had 0 entries in the $20 as I only planned to put 10 into the $3 when Best Ball rolled out. DK is smart to run these promos as it gets people like me to enter something I had 0 interest in a month ago.

    On the app click the “view all promotions” daily and they have offers that pop up all of the time that you can take advantage of. Right now they are putting out a new promo everyday via the Week 1 Countdown. Today is not quite as good as yesterday but if you enter the $10 Milly Maker showdown on Thursday and if any Texans WR catches a TD you get 1,500 crowns which is worth $2.72 to cut down the cost of the entry a little bit.

    Is Ohio really the only state that residents can’t play Draftkings Best Ball?

    That’s the dumbest thing I’ve seen in quite some time.

  • emnj69

    I got a free entry-wow is that draft frustrating-I guess I set it for slow mode and one person was taking FOREVER to pick-and it said hours are allowed or something to that effect-after a few picks just went auto draft

  • emnj69

    slow draft is slow death-

  • emnj69

    it was free and I will like I was ripped off due to time involved lol

  • monarch

    I agree on the TE strategy. What ive been doing is grabbing Ertz then Higbee and finally adding Goedert as Ertz insurance.

    I can see where teams end up with no QBs and TEs in the playoffs in this format.

  • yisman

    If you have a ticket just go to the app, find best ball millionaire contest, click enter

    It takes the ticket first, not cash

    DK sure got rid of all the 20 dollar overlay in a hurry. Maybe the other price points will overlay.

    I don’t understand why everyone is saying it’s impossible to win if you drafted prior to yesterday now? Isn’t it week 1-14 vs your 12 then a redraft vs a new group of people who won? Probably easier to make a winning team yesterday vs the fish but gahh doesn’t do you much good in the tournament format where you’ll klay other sharp people going forward? Or are these lineups being carried over through the end of the season?

    Did the slow draft last night with the free ticket and I honestly don’t mind it, because I started it last night and the allotted time is only 10 minutes per pick. Eight hours would’ve killed me. The problem now is that they switched to eight hours overnight, which I agree with, until 10 AM. But one person picked shortly before 10 and the clock won’t switch back to 10 minutes until this person’s clock is up and it’s still at about six hours. I’m sure the kid will make a pick, but that’s a little flaw in the changing the clock from 10 minutes to eight hours and back to 10 minutes system that they probably didn’t foresee.

    It is a redraft for the playoffs?

    I agree with this as I had 6 slow drafts going into yesterday and 1 of those had someone who timed out on the 8 hour close so we didn’t get to the 10 minute timer until 4pm so naturally that one didn’t finish yesterday and spilled into today.

    I honestly don’t mind having a few slow drafts going with a 8 hour clock. It takes usually about 14-15 days to complete but you don’t have to worry about being autodrafted as that is way more than enough time to make a pick around a busy schedule. However after doing a few fast drafts as well I found I could make better teams in the fast draft with people making mistakes and getting autodrafted with guys who have opted out or are on IR and out for the season.

    No you have the same team all year. So if you win your 12 man league you will be up against other winners and there will be some overlap of the same players.
