If you have ever participated in an office pool of any kind centering around the NFL season, March Madness Super Bowl, or other sports, you are already somewhat familiar with DraftKings Betting Pools.
Unlike betting through the sportsbook where you are essentially trying to beat a sharp line against the sportsbook, Pools are played with other bettors.
There are a variety of different betting Betting Pools available at DraftKings:
Pick'em pools, which are the most common type of pools on DraftKings, are available in a variety of formats including for Game Winner, Against the Spread, Single, Game, and 3-way.
The prize structures of the betting pools range from Guaranteed Prizes, Pari-Mutual with Rollovers and Pari-Mutual Guaranteed. The guaranteed prize pools have a fixed prize pool with a fixed number of entries. Pari-Mutual pools feature a growing prize pool with "rollover" pools, rolling over to the next pool if there are no winners.
How do I win at DraftKings Pools?
You will win a prize from DraftKings Pools by correctly choosing a set number of picks for a given pool. The prize will be shared with all winners, who met the threshold. Since the payout structure can vary by pool, check the full contest details and prize structures before entering.
