FanDuel has introduced yet another new game, this time for soccer and it’s just in time for the World Cup. World Soccer Pick’em allows users to select winners of games for a chance to win free entries and a piece of a daily jackpot.
The action begins June 14th with the start of the World Cup. FanDuel is giving away over $135k in free prizes during the 2018 World Cup. Best of all, this game is entirely free for all FanDuel users.
How it Works
Each day during the World Cup, FanDuel will give users a chance to win free entries and cash prizes.
To participate, simply pick the winners of World Cup matches before the games begin to get a chance at a prize. Users will be able to select their picks the night before the games up until game time. The first jackpot prize will be awarded on June 14th and will be for $3,000.
There are two ways to win prizes each day of the World Cup — Pick the Winners or Pick the Scores.
Pick the Winners – Get the outcome of every game correct to receive an entry into the World Cup Free Play.
Pick the Scores – Users who hit the score for the day can also win a share of the Daily Jackpot.
You can find the Soccer Pick’em under the promotions in FanDuel or at the top of the FanDuel lobby. Before each match, users will make a selection for the winner as well as the score as seen below:
