Draftstars Announces Australia's Largest Daily Fantasy Sports Prize Pool of $500K
PlayUp Global CEO, Daniel Simic commented: "Our Draftstars players have an opportunity to walk away with the $150,000 first place prize simply by entering a Draftstars Live Final Qualifier Contest and picking their favourite AFL fantasy team. $500,000 is the largest Fantasy Prize Pool ever to be offered in Australia and we are proud to be hosting the hugely popular competition and Live Final. As Draftstars grows, so do our prize pools. Next year we are aiming to have a $1m competition."
PlayUp Australia CEO, Paul Jeronimo commented: "We might not have been able to host last year's Live Final in person, but the Virtual Event in 2021 was still a huge hit with a massive $250,000 prize pool won. This year we're back, bigger and better than ever."
Everyone over 18 in Australia is welcome to join and to win a ticket to the $500,000 Live Final, players need to simply win any AFL Qualifier Contest. There's a Qualifier Contest available on selected AFL slates throughout the season until the Live Final. There will also be additional qualifier contests available on select matches for other sports throughout the period.
The AFL $500k Live Final contest will be held at The Timber Yard in Port Melbourne on August 21st 2022. The match for the final contest is yet to be determined pending the release of the fixture for that round.
