Behind industry giants FanDuel and DraftKings sits FantasyDraft, a newer site endorsed by a handful of professional athletes including Drew Brees and Shannon Sharpe. In addition to the endorsement of many pros, FantasyDraft offers hundreds of thousands of dollars in guaranteed tournaments each week during the NFL season.
If that wasn’t enough, FantasyDraft also features a nice 100% up to $600 bonus that all new players are eligible for when they sign-up.
100% up to $600 Sign-Up Bonus
Details of the FantasyDraft Bonus
The FantasyDraft first deposit bonus, known on FantasyDraft as the “Double Down Bonus” matches a first deposit at 100% up to $600, meaning if you make a deposit up to $600, you will have that amount matched and placed into a bonus account. Once your deposit has been made, you can release your bonus by playing real money contests.
For every $1 in contest buy-ins, you will have $0.04 released into your account. If you enter a $10 contest, $0.40 will be moved from your “Pending Bonus” into “Fantasy Cash.” This is the equivalent of approximately 40% of the rake that you pay to enter real money contests, an excellent value for any new player and a great return compared to many other daily fantasy sports sites. This extra bonus awarded can turn a losing player into a winning player at FantasyDraft, especially when considering the lucrative overlays the DFS site has been awarding recently.
For this reason, if you have $600 to spare and you play a lot of daily fantasy sports, it is recommended that you deposit the full $600 to maximize the bonus, as you wont get the opportunity to take advantage of it again. The bonus does not expire, so you will be given plenty of time to meet the terms of the sign-up bonus.
Bonuses are awarded incrementally in the form of Fantasy Cash as your contests are completed. FantasyCash can be used to enter real money contests but can not be withdrawn. However, if you enter a real money contest with FantasyDraft and win cash, you will be able to make a FantasyDraft withdrawal.
To monitor the progress on your bonus, simply go into your account. You will see the balance mixed with your cash balance and Fantasy Cash balance. You will also be able to see the amount of bonus credited to your Fantasy Cash account once the contest as been completed.
How to Take Advantage of Your Fantasy Draft Bonus
When you register at FantasyDraft, you will be asked if you want to make a FantasyDraft deposit. You can also make a deposit from your account page at any time after you have signed in. That deposit bonus screen looks like this.
Select one of the choices given to you by FantasyDraft, or enter a custom amount. Any deposit over $600 will still yield the maximum $600 bonus. Don’t worry if you don’t make a deposit within the 10 minutes or so FantasyDraft gives you. You can come back at any time and complete your deposit and still receive your bonus.
Your Bonus will be credited immediately to your FantasyDraft account once you have made your deposit.
