Be a Legend in DraftKings League of Legends Championship
DraftKings is searching for the ultimate king of fantasy sports. There are nine live championships scheduled this year, with more than 40 competitions. The guaranteed prize pool will be over $100,000,000.
One of this year’s competitions will be the DraftKings League of Legends (LOL) Championship. There will be $100,000 on the table in this contest. In addition to cash awards for every finalist, there will be a spot in the Tournament of Champions.
Part of your trip to the Tournament of Champions will be a ticket to the Super Bowl to be held in Tampa next February. There are a couple of ways you get yourself a spot in the finals. Here’s everything you need to know to get in the game and earn your trip to Tampa.
How to Get into the Finals
There are two ways to punch your ticket into the DraftKings LOL Championship final. You can take the buy-in route for $555. However, you can also put your fantasy skills to the test by entering a satellite contest to win your way into the finals.
Each of the satellites will have players post their best League of Legends lineup. The winner of the contest will earn a $555 ticket into the finals. Satellite contests have a preset number of total entries, so don’t waste time thinking about getting an entry, sign up for every satellite change available.
LOL Lineup Structure
You create a lineup using the standard salary cap structure of $50,000. There are five individual spots on the lineup card, plus a team slot and a crown spot will generate 1.5 times the point value.
The DraftKings League of Legends has a guaranteed $400,000 prize pool, including $100,000 to the eventual winner. Remember, that LOL Champion also earns a ticket into the DraftKings Tournament of Champions and a pair of tickets to the Big Game in Tampa.
Second and third place at the LOL final will net $40,000 and $20,000 respectfully. Each of the 206 qualifiers to the finals will win cash at the finals. The lowest 91 scores still bring home $850.
There are going to be dozens of exciting competitions on DraftKings over the next few months. Each one will have a huge prize pool, along with special perks such as tickets to major sporting events. The DraftKings League of Legends Championship is one way to win money and punch your ticket to see next February’s ultimate football game.
