FanDuel is combining two new recent concepts for “March to the Playoffs,” a promotion that celebrates the run-up to the NBA playoffs in mid-April. The promotion will combine the Beat the Score concept with the most recent college basketball bracket contest challenge – with a big twist and a share of $10,000 at stake.
Instead of filling out teams in a bracket, YOU are potentially the team — and you must qualify between March 15th and March 22nd.
Key Points of March to the Playoffs
To participate in the “March to the Playoffs” Tournament bracket you will first need to be one of 16 qualifiers – 2 each day through the 22nd.
The mode of entry into the tournament is through a $3 “March to the Playoffs Beat the Score” NBA contest, which you will be able to access from the FanDuel lobby. If you finish with one of the two highest scores of the night in a designated “Beat the Score” contest you will qualify for the March to the Playoffs Tournament, which will start on March 26th. In addition to the two qualifiers, players who beat the score for the contest will also receive the standard Beat the Score prize.
Here is what a qualifying contest looks like:
If you are one of the 16 players who qualify for the March to the Playoffs Tournament, you will guarantee yourself a portion of the $10,000 prize. The longer you last through the tournament, the larger your prize.
