Flu season might be over but it seems jackpot fever has well and truly gripped NBA fans with Friday's Draftstars Big 400 Target prize pool peaking at a record $40,000.
The Big 400 Target competition requires Draftstars players, for only $1, to choose nine NBA players on any one day (two point guards, two shooting guards, two small forwards, two power forwards and a centre) within a $100,000 salary cap. Points are scored for each stat accumulated, with the winners crowned if they reach 400 points at completion of all games.
Draftstars Chief Executive Matt Sanders said Friday would be one of the best chances for this jackpot to be won with high scoring teams such as the Russell Westbrook led Oklahoma City taking the court.
Matt Robertson, who won $34,000 in the AFL version of the Draftstars Target competition has some advice for people new to Draftstars.
“Look for matchups and target good teams playing rubbish teams. I like to choose mid-priced players over superstars and you definitely need an ounce of luck,” he said.
Draftstars, is Australia’s fastest growing fast fantasy sports platform, and achieved notoriety for their $15 entry fantasy competition on AFL Grand Final day where the prize pool of $110,000 eclipsed every record for daily fantasy sport seen outside the US.
A Joint Venture between Seven West Media, Fox Sports and Crownbet, the Draftstars daily fantasy concept is driven on giving sports fans another outlet to be more invested and entertained around live sport.
