This week FanDuel introduced an interesting new promotion which aims to get players engaged in a variety of sports this summer – the FanDuel Summer Buzzer Beater Challenge.
This unique challenge is only being offered for a limited time, but it’s creative way of getting daily fantasy sports players to experiment with other games – and earn a bit extra while doing so.
How’s the Summer Buzzer Beater Challenge Works
The Summer Buzzer Beater Challenge runs just for a few days, but its a concept that aims to get players excited for daily fantasy sports in general.
Players who take part in predetermined challenges can earn points towards FDP point prizes and contest entries that give away up to $5,000 in cash. The challenges are awarding 1 to 3 points for completing each challenge. And earning points for completing challenges is easy. For all 15 challenges, a player needs to simply enter a specified contest.
Generally, the more difficult the challenge, the points will be awarded.
Here are the challenges available for the Summer Buzzer beater which runs through July 4th.
1 Point Challenges:
Enter any MLB contest
Enter 2 or more MLB Head to Head Contests with Buy-in of $1 of more

Prizes for Earning Points
The more points that are accumulated during Summer Buzzer Beater Challenge, the largest the prize will be. Points are not extremely difficult to earn – you just have to play a variety of different contests. We don’t expect the value of these rewards to be extremely high, but they will add to your overall value.
Players earn FanDuel Points as well as any entry to a freeroll contest based on the number of points earned.
