Pick6 Rules and Scoring

NFL


Overview


Pick6 is a peer-to-peer daily fantasy sports (DFS) contest variant offered by DraftKings. Build a lineup, also known as your “Pick Set”, by choosing between 2-6 players and selecting whether you believe they will outperform their stat projections. Compete in contests against other users’ Pick Sets and win prizes by making the required number of correct picks.

The entries you compete against are determined by the number of picks you decide to make in your Pick Set (your “Pick Level”). Your Pick Set will only compete against entries of the same Pick Level. The pool of available athletes and their associated stat projections is called a “Pick Group”.


Available Pick Stats

Stat

Scoring Notes

Passing Yards (PaYds)

Sacks do not count negatively towards player passing yards, but forward passes that result in negative-yardage plays do.

Passing Touchdowns (PaTD)

If a player completes a pass that ultimately results in a different offensive player scoring a touchdown via lateral without a change in possession, a passing touchdown is still awarded.

Receiving Yards (RecYds)

On passing plays that eventually involve laterals to other players, receiving yards are awarded to the player who caught the ball up until the first lateral pass.

Rushing Yards (RuYds)

Includes yards accumulated on lateral plays and yards lost on kneel downs.

Interceptions Thrown (INT)Forward passes caught by the opposing defense. If the defense fumbles the return and the offense recovers to regain possession, the interception is still awarded.
Passing Attempts (ATT)Only forward pass attempts are counted.
Rushing Attempts (RuAtt)Includes kneel downs to end a half or game. Excludes passing plays that result in sacks.
Receptions (REC)Awarded if a pass-catcher receives a forward pass
Completions (COMP)Forward pass completions only. Includes balls batted at the line and caught by the offense for negative yardage.
Rush + Rec Yards (Ru+Rec)Adding together the rushing and receiving yards categories as described above.
Kicking Points (KPTS)1 KPT per extra point made, 3 KPTS per field goal made. Touchdowns or safeties scored by the player do not count towards this total.
Total Touchdowns (TD)Includes rushing, receiving, kickoff return, punt return, and offensive fumble recovery touchdowns. Excludes passing, defensive fumble recovery, interception return, and field goal block/punt block touchdowns.

Two-point conversion plays will not factor into the accounting of any of the above stats.

Stat counts are determined by official third-party stat providers of DraftKings and the NFL.

Minimum Play Requirements

For Pick6 NFL contests, the player must record at least one (1) snap (offense, defense, or special teams) in the game to be considered as having met the minimum play requirements.

If a player does not meet the minimum play requirements in their game, all picks associated with that player will be scored as a loss, regardless of selecting more or less for the pick.


Scoring and Payouts

DraftKings uses statistics from third party providers, such as, but not limited to, STATS, LLC, for the purposes of providing game results and real-time entertainment value to its end users. DraftKings may change third-party providers from time to time without notice. For more information, please contact DraftKings customer service at support@draftkings.com.

Live scoring updates are strictly for the enjoyment of DraftKings customers. DraftKings’ official scoring validation process begins once all games within the Pick Group are final. This process ensures that DraftKings scoring matches official stat providers when contest results are finalized and paid out.

Once contests are finalized, a Pick Set status will change to “Completed”, and the Pick Set will move from the Live tab to the Recent tab on the My Picks page.

On occasion, official scorers may issue a stat-correction after games have ended and the official scoring validation process has completed. These corrections are rare, but can occur days after a game is played. Therefore, any changes to official scoring that occur after contests have been finalized will not impact those finalized contests. Conversely, if a correction needs to be made after contests are finalized due to a bug with the data feed or the finalization process, while extremely rare, the finalization process (including payment) may be reversed and redone correctly.

Pick stats and their more/less outcomes are intended to align with final game box scores at the time of Pick6 payouts, independent of contest payout timing for other DFS formats in the same sport and involving the same games. While rare, it is possible for a final stat amount on Pick6 to differ with other DFS formats based on when contests from each format were finalized and paid out.

Note: The official scoring validation process is solely to ensure that DraftKings contest results are determined based on official scoring. Delays during this process may occur as a result of data collection or other technical difficulties. DraftKings will not attempt to make judgments on scoring rulings.


Special Payouts Cases

A Prize Tier is defined as the amount of picks correct and the resulting award for an entry finishing with that number of correct picks. For example, a Prize Tier in a contest could award $500 split among all entries that got 6/6 picks correct and $200 split among all entries that got 5/6 picks correct.

What Happens if No One Finishes in a Prize Tier?

If no entry meets the requirements for an individual Prize Tier posted within a contest, DraftKings will award that tier's prizes to the highest (most picks correct) Prizing Tier. If no entries finish in any posted Prize Tiers,entries with the highest number of correct picks in that contest will be declared the winners and awarded an equal share of the contest’s guaranteed prize pool. In the event no entry has a single correct selection, no winner can be declared and DraftKings will refund all entry fees.

Example Scenarios for When No Entries Qualify for a Prize Tier

The table below explains what course of action DraftKings will take in the event that 0 entries qualify for a posted Prize Tier. The example contest is a 6-Pick Level contest with the following prize structure:


  • $500 split among all entries with 6/6 picks correct.
  • $200 split among all entries with 5/6 picks correct.
  • $100 split among all entries with 4/6 picks correct.
  • Entries with 0/6, 1/6, 2/6, or 3/6 picks do not win a prize.

All scenarios assume the non-mentioned payout tiers have at least one qualifying entry. For example, “No entries with 6/6 correct” assumes there are entries that got 5/6 and 4/6 correct.


Scenario

Outcome

No entries with 6/6 correct

The $500 for 6/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 5/6 correct ($700 new total prize value for 5/6).

No entries with 5/6 correct

The $200 for 5/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($700 new total prize value for 6/6).

No entries with 4/6 correct

The $100 for 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($600 new total prize value for 6/6).

No entries with 6/6 correct and no entries with 5/6 correct

The combined $700 for 6/6 and 5/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 4/6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 4/6).

No entries with 6/6 correct and no entries with 4/6 correct

The combined $600 for 6/6 and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 5 ⁄ 6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 5/6).

No entries with 5/6 correct and no entries with 4/6 correct

The combined $300 for 5/6 and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 6/6).

All entries have 3/6 or fewer correct

The combined $800 for 6/6, 5/6, and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with the highest number of correct entries. (e.g., 3/6 correct;if no entries with 3/6 correct , then 2/6 correct, etc.).


In the case of a contest in which all entries get 0 picks correct, regardless of Pick Level, all entry fees are returned back to players.


Is It Possible for an Entry with Fewer Correct Picks to Win More than an Entry with More Correct Picks?


On occasion, more entries could finish in a higher Prize Tier compared to the one below it. For example, many more entries getting 6/6 picks correct than 5/6 picks correct. This can lead to the per-entry prizing amount for getting 5/6 correct being higher than the per-entry prizing amount for 6/6 entries because entries within a Prize Tier split the prize.

If an entry in a lower Prize Tier is awarded a higher per-entry prizing amount than an entry from a higher Prize Tier, DraftKings will manually credit entries in the higher Prize Tier the difference between the higher prize awarded to winners in the lower Prize Tier and the prize awarded to winners in the higher Prize Tier. This credit may occur after contest payouts.


Example for Credits When a Lower Tier Makes More Per Entry Than a Higher One

In this example, assume a 6-pick Pick6 contest awards $500 in prizes split among all entries that got 6/6 picks correct. The Prize Tier below it awards $200 in prizes split among all entries that got 5/6 picks correct.

If 100 entries in the contest got 6/6 correct, that $500 payout would award $5 for each of those entries ($500 / 100 entries = $5 per entry). If only 25 entries got 5/6 correct in the same contest, that Prize Tier’s $200 payout would award $8 for each of those entries ($200 / 25 entries = $8 per entry).

Because entries in the 5/6 Prize Tier earned more than the entries in the 6/6 Prize Tier, DraftKings will manually credit each player with entries that got 6/6 picks correct $3 per entry (the actual per entry difference between the 6/6 and 5/6 Prize Tiers). There is no change to the prizing for entries that finished in the 5/6 Prize Tier.


Pick Set Requirements

Eligible Pick6 Pick Sets must contain players representing at least two different teams.

Once a player is selected, they cannot be selected again for a different pick in the same Pick Set. For example, an NFL player can be picked for passing yards OR interceptions thrown, not both.


Player Pool

Once stat projections for each pick are published they will not be changed.

DraftKings reserves the right to add picks to a Pick Group at its discretion after the initial group of picks has been published. Pick options will not be removed from the pool once published. However, a pick will be graded as a loss if the player does not meet the minimum play requirement, regardless if the pick is more or less. Additionally, picks that remain in the pool can be disabled from being added to future Pick Sets (for a reason such as an OUT injury designation).

Pick groups will only contain athletes from one sport. In other words, it is not possible to have an NBA pick and an NFL pick in the same Pick Set. Picks must be made within the same Pick Group. The Pick Group is a particular set of games and available picks. To change Pick Groups, there is a filter on the Home pick experience.

Pick Set Edits

Pick Sets may be edited at any time leading up to games. Each individual player will become "locked" at the scheduled start time of their team’s game. A locked player cannot be added or removed from a Pick Set. Locked picks for all entries are displayed on the My Picks page.

Edits for Pick6 are done at the Pick Set level. Therefore, any swaps made to a Pick Set will be applied to all contest entries of that Pick Set.

When editing a Pick Set, the original Pick Level cannot be changed. For example, if a Pick Set was originally created with 5 picks, any edit to that Pick Set must contain 5 total picks to be valid.

If the scheduled start time for a game changes after contests for a Pick Group containing that game become available, DraftKings will take measures to ensure the change is reflected on the pick experience and for Pick Set editing purposes. In the rare case that a game starts before the scheduled start time, all players within that game will become locked as soon as our feed reflects that the game has begun. Additionally, any swaps that were made after the real-life start time of the game will result in those Pick Sets being disqualified and refunded.


Canceled, Postponed, and Rescheduled Games

In the event that a game is canceled or postponed & rescheduled to a time within the original scoring period, the game will be included in the Pick Group and picks listed to play in that game can be graded as either a win or a loss (subject to minimum play requirement).

If a game is rescheduled for a time OUTSIDE the original scoring period, the game will be disabled from the Pick Group. Picks from that game will be graded as losses. Players will become locked if the start time of their game passes. In some cases, if the start time of a disabled game has not yet been reached, DraftKings may move the start time of that disabled game to be equal to the start time of the latest game in the Pick Group in order to allow for those players to be unlocked and swappable, provided DraftKings could move the start time before the disabled game’s original start time passed.

The scoring period for NFL is defined as the timeframe between the scheduled start of the first game within the Pick Group and 11:59PM ET on the first Wednesday after the last scheduled game within the Pick Group.

DraftKings may choose to adjust the scoring period for a Pick Group at its sole discretion to accommodate schedule changes any time before 12:00 AM ET on the day after the Pick Group is scheduled to start.

DraftKings may move a Pick Group or a game’s start time if it is known that a game will be starting at an earlier or later defined time than originally announced.

Games are "known" to be canceled or postponed once their status is updated as such by DraftKings’ NFL stats provider(s).

DraftKings may move the start time of a game if the NFL has given an official definitive new start time and the original start time of the game has not yet been reached. Games with a “delayed” start (due to weather or otherwise) that have no definite new start time will stay on their original start time.

If canceled or rescheduled games result in a Pick Group including zero active games, all contests for that Pick Group will be canceled and refunded.


Suspended or Shortened Games

If the NFL declares a game "suspended" then the statistics generated before the game is suspended will count in Pick Groups containing said game. Any statistics generated outside the scoring period will not be included. The scoring period for NFL is defined as the timeframe between the scheduled start of the first game within the Pick Group and 11:59 PM ET on the first Wednesday after the last scheduled game within the Pick Group.

In the event that a game is suspended due to an injury or other “Force Majeure” type instance (determined at the sole discretion of DraftKings), and the game does NOT continue by 11:59 PM ET on the first Wednesday of the last scheduled game within the Pick Group, then the following applies:


  • If the Pick Group involves two or more games, all stats accrued up until the time of stoppage will count towards the grading of picks.
  • If the game is part of a single-game set, the following will apply:
    • If the suspension occurs in the first half of the game, the Pick Group will be refunded.
    • If the suspension occurs at halftime, or in the second half of the game, the Pick Group will be paid out as scored at the time of suspension.

  • $100 split among all entries with 4/6 picks correct.
  • Entries with 0/6, 1/6, 2/6, or 3/6 picks do not win a prize.

All scenarios assume the non-mentioned payout tiers have at least one qualifying entry. For example, “No entries with 6/6 correct” assumes there are entries that got 5/6 and 4/6 correct.


Scenario

Outcome

No entries with 6/6 correct

The $500 for 6/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 5/6 correct ($700 new total prize value for 5/6).

No entries with 5/6 correct

The $200 for 5/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($700 new total prize value for 6/6).

No entries with 4/6 correct

The $100 for 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($600 new total prize value for 6/6).

No entries with 6/6 correct and no entries with 5/6 correct

The combined $700 for 6/6 and 5/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 4/6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 4/6).

No entries with 6/6 correct and no entries with 4/6 correct

The combined $600 for 6/6 and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 5 ⁄ 6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 5/6).

No entries with 5/6 correct and no entries with 4/6 correct

The combined $300 for 5/6 and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 6/6).

All entries have 3/6 or fewer correct

The combined $800 for 6/6, 5/6, and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with the highest number of correct entries. (e.g., 3/6 correct;if no entries with 3/6 correct , then 2/6 correct, etc.).


In the case of a contest in which all entries get 0 picks correct, regardless of Pick Level, all entry fees are returned back to players.


Is It Possible for an Entry with Fewer Correct Picks to Win More than an Entry with More Correct Picks?


On occasion, more entries could finish in a higher Prize Tier compared to the one below it. For example, many more entries getting 6/6 picks correct than 5/6 picks correct. This can lead to the per-entry prizing amount for getting 5/6 correct being higher than the per-entry prizing amount for 6/6 entries because entries within a Prize Tier split the prize.

If an entry in a lower Prize Tier is awarded a higher per-entry prizing amount than an entry from a higher Prize Tier, DraftKings will manually credit entries in the higher Prize Tier the difference between the higher prize awarded to winners in the lower Prize Tier and the prize awarded to winners in the higher Prize Tier. This credit may occur after contest payouts.


Example for Credits When a Lower Tier Makes More Per Entry Than a Higher One

In this example, assume a 6-pick Pick6 contest awards $500 in prizes split among all entries that got 6/6 picks correct. The Prize Tier below it awards $200 in prizes split among all entries that got 5/6 picks correct.

If 100 entries in the contest got 6/6 correct, that $500 payout would award $5 for each of those entries ($500 / 100 entries = $5 per entry). If only 25 entries got 5/6 correct in the same contest, that Prize Tier’s $200 payout would award $8 for each of those entries ($200 / 25 entries = $8 per entry).

Because entries in the 5/6 Prize Tier earned more than the entries in the 6/6 Prize Tier, DraftKings will manually credit each player with entries that got 6/6 picks correct $3 per entry (the actual per entry difference between the 6/6 and 5/6 Prize Tiers). There is no change to prizing for entries that finished in the 5/6 Prize Tier.


Pick Set Requirements

Eligible Pick6 Pick Sets must contain players representing at least two different teams.

Once a player is selected, they cannot be selected again for a different pick in the same Pick Set. For example, an NBA player can be picked for 3-pointers made OR turnovers, not both.

Pick stats and their more/less outcomes are intended to align with final game box scores at the time of Pick6 payouts, independent of contest payout timing for other DFS formats in the same sport and involving the same games. While rare, it is possible for a final stat amount on Pick6 to differ with other DFS formats based on when contests from each format were finalized and paid out.

Note: The official scoring validation process is solely to ensure that DraftKings contest results are determined based on official scoring. Delays during this process may occur as a result of data collection or other technical difficulties. DraftKings will not attempt to make judgments on scoring rulings.

Special Payouts Cases

A Prize Tier is defined as the amount of picks correct and the resulting award for an entry finishing with that number of correct picks. For example, a Prize Tier in a contest could award $500 split among all entries that got 6/6 picks correct and $200 split among all entries that got 5/6 picks correct.

What Happens if No One Finishes in a Prize Tier?

If no entry meets the requirements for an individual Prize Tier posted within a contest, DraftKings will award that tier's prizes to the highest (most picks correct) Prize Tier. If no entries finish in any posted Prize Tier, entries with the highest number of correct picks in that contest will be declared the winners and awarded an equal share of the contest’s guaranteed prize pool. In the event no entry has a single correct selection, no winner can be declared and DraftKings will refund all entry fees.

Example Scenarios for When No Entries Qualify for a Prize Tier

The table below explains what course of action DraftKings will take in the event that 0 entries qualify for a posted Prize Tier. The example contest is a 6-Pick Level contest with the following prize structure:


  • $500 split among all entries with 6/6 picks correct.
  • $200 split among all entries with 5/6 picks correct.
  • $100 split among all entries with 4/6 picks correct.
  • Entries with 0/6, 1/6, 2/6, or 3/6 picks do not win a prize.

All scenarios assume the non-mentioned payout tiers have at least one qualifying entry. For example, “No entries with 6/6 correct” assumes there are entries that got 5/6 and 4/6 correct.


Scenario

Outcome

No entries with 6/6 correct

The $500 for 6/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 5/6 correct ($700 new total prize value for 5/6).

No entries with 5/6 correct

The $200 for 5/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($700 new total prize value for 6/6).

No entries with 4/6 correct

The $100 for 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($600 new total prize value for 6/6).

No entries with 6/6 correct and no entries with 5/6 correct

The combined $700 for 6/6 and 5/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 4/6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 4/6).

No entries with 6/6 correct and no entries with 4/6 correct

The combined $600 for 6/6 and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 5 ⁄ 6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 5/6).

No entries with 5/6 correct and no entries with 4/6 correct

The combined $300 for 5/6 and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 6/6).

All entries have 3/6 or fewer correct

The combined $800 for 6/6, 5/6, and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with the highest number of correct entries. (e.g., 3/6 correct;if no entries with 3/6 correct , then 2/6 correct, etc.).


In the case of a contest in which all entries get 0 picks correct, regardless of Pick Level, all entry fees are returned back to players.


Is It Possible for an Entry with Fewer Correct Picks to Win More than an Entry with More Correct Picks?


On occasion, more entries could finish in a higher Prize Tier compared to the one below it. For example, many more entries getting 6/6 picks correct than 5/6 picks correct. This can lead to the per-entry prizing amount for getting 5/6 correct being higher than the per-entry prizing amount for 6/6 entries because entries within a Prize Tier split the prize.

If an entry in a lower Prize Tier is awarded a higher per-entry prizing amount than an entry from a higher Prize Tier, DraftKings will manually credit entries in the higher Prize Tier the difference between the higher prize awarded to winners in the lower Prize Tier and the prize awarded to winners in the higher Prize Tier. This credit may occur after contest payouts.


Example for Credits When a Lower Tier Makes More Per Entry Than a Higher One

In this example, assume a 6-pick Pick6 contest awards $500 in prizes split among all entries that got 6/6 picks correct. The Prize Tier below it awards $200 in prizes split among all entries that got 5/6 picks correct.

If 100 entries in the contest got 6/6 correct, that $500 payout would award $5 for each of those entries ($500 / 100 entries = $5 per entry). If only 25 entries got 5/6 correct in the same contest, that Prize Tier’s $200 payout would award $8 for each of those entries ($200 / 25 entries = $8 per entry).

Because entries in the 5/6 Prize Tier earned more than the entries in the 6/6 Prize Tier, DraftKings will manually credit each player with entries that got 6/6 picks correct $3 per entry (the actual per entry difference between the 6/6 and 5/6 Prize Tiers). There is no change to the prizing for entries that finished in the 5/6 Prize Tier.


Pick Set Requirements

Eligible Pick6 Pick Sets must contain players representing at least two different teams.

Once a player is selected, they cannot be selected again for a different pick in the same Pick Set. For example, an NHL player can be picked for assists OR blocked shots, not both.

Player Pool

Once stat projections for each pick are published they will not be changed.

DraftKings reserves the right to add picks to a Pick Group at its discretion after the initial group of picks has been published. Pick options will not be removed from the pool once published. However, a pick will be graded as a loss if the player does not meet the minimum play requirement, regardless if the pick is more or less. Additionally, picks that remain in the pool can be disabled from being added to future Pick Sets (for a reason such as an OUT injury designation).

Pick groups will only contain athletes from one sport. In other words, it is not possible to have an NHL pick and an NBA pick in the same Pick Set. Picks must be made within the same Pick Group. The Pick Group is a particular set of games and available picks. To change Pick Groups, there is a filter on the Home pick experience.

Pick Set Edits

Pick Sets may be edited at any time leading up to games. Each individual player will become "locked" at the scheduled start time of their team’s game. A locked player cannot be added or removed from a Pick Set. Locked picks for all entries are displayed on the My Picks page.

Edits for Pick6 are done at the Pick Set level. Therefore, any swaps made to a Pick Set will be applied to all contest entries of that Pick Set.

When editing a Pick Set, the original Pick Level cannot be changed. For example, if a Pick Set was originally created with 5 picks, any edit to that Pick Set must contain 5 total picks to be valid.

If the scheduled start time for a game changes after contests for a Pick Group containing that game become available, DraftKings will take measures to ensure the change is reflected on the pick experience and for Pick Set editing purposes. In the rare case that a game starts before the scheduled start time, all players within that game will become locked as soon as our feed reflects that the game has begun. Additionally, any swaps that were made after the real-life start time of the game will result in those Pick Sets being disqualified and refunded.

Canceled, Postponed, and Rescheduled Games

In the event that a game is canceled or postponed & rescheduled to a time within the original scoring period, the game will be included in the Pick Group and picks listed to play in that game can be graded as either a win or a loss (subject to minimum play requirement).

If a game is rescheduled for a time OUTSIDE the original scoring period, the game will be disabled from the Pick Group. Picks from that game will be graded as losses. Players will become locked if the start time of their game passes. In some cases, if the start time of a disabled game has not yet been reached, DraftKings may move the start time of that disabled game to be equal to the start time of the latest game in the Pick Group in order to allow for those players to be unlocked and swappable, provided DraftKings could move the start time before the disabled game’s original start time passed.

The scoring period for NHL is defined as the timeframe between the scheduled start of the first game within the Pick Group and 11:59 PM ET on the day after the last scheduled game within the Pick Group.

DraftKings may choose to adjust the scoring period for a Pick Group at its sole discretion to accommodate schedule changes any time before 12:00 AM ET on the day after the Pick Group is scheduled to start.

DraftKings may move a Pick Group or a game’s start time if it is known that a game will be starting at an earlier or later defined time than originally announced.

Games are "known" to be canceled or postponed once their status is updated as such by DraftKings’ NHL stats provider(s).

DraftKings may move the start time of a game if the NHL has given an official definitive new start time and the original start time of the game has not yet been reached. Games with a “delayed” start (due to weather or otherwise) that have no definite new start time will stay on their original start time.

If canceled or rescheduled games result in a Pick Group including zero active games, all contests for that Pick Group will be canceled and refunded.

Suspended or Shortened Games

If the NHL declares a game "suspended" then the statistics generated before the game is suspended will count in Pick Groups containing said game. Any statistics generated outside the scoring period will not be included. The scoring period for NHL is defined as the timeframe between the scheduled start of the first game within the Pick Group and 11:59 PM ET on the day after the last scheduled game within the Pick Group.

In the event that a game is suspended due to an injury or other “Force Majeure” type instance (determined at the sole discretion of DraftKings), and the game does NOT continue by 11:59 PM ET on the day after the last scheduled game within the Pick Group, then the following applies:

  • If the Pick Group involves two or more games, all stats accrued up until the time of stoppage will count towards the grading of picks.

  • If the game is part of a single-game set, the following will apply:

    • If the suspension occurs before the 10-minute mark of the second period, the Pick Group will be refunded.

    • If the suspension occurs at or after the 10-minute mark of the second period, the Pick Group will be paid out as scored at the time of suspension.

PGA TOUR Full Tournament Pick6


Overview


Pick6 is a peer-to-peer daily fantasy sports (DFS) contest variant offered by DraftKings. Build a lineup, also known as your “Pick Set”, by choosing between 2-6 golfers and selecting whether you believe they will outperform their stat projections. Compete in contests against other users’ Pick Sets and win prizes by making the required number of correct picks.

The entries you compete against are determined by the number of picks you decide to make in your Pick Set (your “Pick Level”). Your Pick Set will only compete against entries of the same Pick Level. The pool of available athletes and their associated stat projections is called a “Pick Group”.

Minimum Play Requirements

For Pick6 PGA TOUR contests, the golfer must record at least 1 stroke in order to be considered as having met the minimum play requirements.

If a golfer does not meet the minimum play requirements, all picks associated with that golfer will be scored as a loss, regardless of selecting more or less for the pick.

Scoring and Payouts

DraftKings uses statistics from third party providers, such as, but not limited to, Sportradar, for the purposes of providing tournament results, stat counts, and real-time entertainment value to its end users. DraftKings may change third-party providers from time to time without notice. For more information, please contact DraftKings customer service at support@draftkings.com.

Live scoring updates are strictly for the enjoyment of DraftKings customers. DraftKings’ official scoring validation process begins once all competitions within the Pick Group are final. This process ensures that DraftKings scoring matches official stat providers when contest results are finalized and paid out.

Once contests are finalized, a Pick Set status will change to “Completed”, and the Pick Set will move from the Live tab to the Recent tab on the My Picks page.

On occasion, official scorers may issue a stat-correction after competitions have ended and the official scoring validation process has completed. These corrections are rare, but can occur days after a competition is played. Therefore, any changes to official scoring that occur after contests have been finalized will not impact those finalized contests. Conversely, if a correction needs to be made after contests are finalized due to a bug with the data feed or the finalization process, while extremely rare, the finalization process (including payment) may be reversed and redone correctly.

Canceled, Postponed, and Rescheduled Tournaments

In the event that a tournament is canceled, DraftKings will cancel and refund all contest entries. DraftKings will consider a tournament canceled if no tour prize money is paid out and no winner is declared, or if the tour itself declares the tournament canceled.

Suspended or Shortened Tournaments

A golf tournament may enter a suspended or postponed state due to weather, darkness, or some other reason. DraftKings will wait until the tournament’s officials make a ruling on the outcome of the suspension, postponement, or other delays, before taking any actions related to paying out or canceling contest entries. If it becomes clear, as determined by DraftKings in its sole discretion, that the tournament will not be completed in full or the intended number of rounds will not be played, DraftKings will cancel and refund all contest entries.

In the case of a contest in which all entries get 0 picks correct, regardless of Pick Level, all entry fees are returned back to players.


Is It Possible for an Entry with Fewer Correct Picks to Win More than an Entry with More Correct Picks?

On occasion, more entries could finish in a higher Prize Tier compared to the one below it. For example, many more entries getting 6/6 picks correct than 5/6 picks correct. This can lead to the per-entry prizing amount for getting 5/6 correct being higher than the per-entry prizing amount for 6/6 entries because entries within a Prize Tier split the prize.

If an entry in a lower Prize Tier is awarded a higher per-entry prizing amount than an entry from a higher Prize Tier, DraftKings will manually credit entries in the higher Prize Tier the difference between the higher prize awarded to winners in the lower Prize Tier and the prize awarded to winners in the higher Prize Tier. This credit may occur after contest payouts.


Example for Credits When a Lower Tier Makes More Per Entry Than a Higher One

In this example, assume a 6-pick Pick6 contest awards $500 in prizes split among all entries that got 6/6 picks correct. The Prize Tier below it awards $200 in prizes split among all entries that got 5/6 picks correct.

If 100 entries in the contest got 6/6 correct, that $500 payout would award $5 for each of those entries ($500 / 100 entries = $5 per entry). If only 25 entries got 5/6 correct in the same contest, that Prize Tier’s $200 payout would award $8 for each of those entries ($200 / 25 entries = $8 per entry).

Because entries in the 5/6 Prize Tier earned more than the entries in the 6/6 Prize Tier, DraftKings will manually credit each player with entries that got 6/6 picks correct $3 per entry (the actual per entry difference between the 6/6 and 5/6 Prize Tiers). There is no change to the prizing for entries that finished in the 5/6 Prize Tier.

Pick Set Requirements

Eligible Pick6 Golf Pick Sets must contain at least 1 “more” pick and 1 “less” pick.

Once a golfer is selected, they cannot be selected again for a different pick in the same Pick Set.

Player Pool

Once stat projections for each pick are published they will not be changed. 

DraftKings reserves the right to add picks to a Pick Group at its discretion after the initial group of picks has been published. Pick options will not be removed from the pool once published. However, a pick will be graded as a loss if the golfer does not meet the minimum play requirement, regardless if the pick is more or less. Additionally, picks that remain in the pool can be disabled from being added to future Pick Sets (for a reason such as an OUT injury designation). 

Pick Groups will only contain golfers. In other words, it is not possible to have a Golf pick and an NFL pick in the same Pick Set. Picks must also be made within the same Pick Group. The Pick Group is a particular set of Golf rounds and available picks. To change Pick Groups, there is a filter on the Home pick experience.

Pick Set Edits

Pick Sets may be edited at any time leading up to the Pick Group start time. Each golfer will become "locked" at the scheduled start time of the round. A locked golfer cannot be added or removed from a Pick Set. Locked picks for all entries are displayed on the My Picks page.

Edits for Pick6 are done at the Pick Set level. Therefore, any swaps made to a Pick Set will be applied to all contest entries of that Pick Set.

When editing a Pick Set, the original Pick Level cannot be changed. For example, if a Pick Set was originally created with 5 picks, any edit to that Pick Set must contain 5 total picks to be valid. 

If the scheduled start time for a round changes after contests for a Pick Group containing that round of Golf become available, DraftKings will take measures to ensure the change is reflected on the pick experience and for Pick Set editing purposes. In the rare case that a round starts before the scheduled start time, all golfers playing in that round will become locked as soon as our feed reflects that the round has begun. Additionally, any swaps that were made after the real-life start time of the round will result in those Pick Sets being disqualified and refunded.

Canceled, Postponed, and Rescheduled Tournaments

In the event that a tournament round is canceled before the round starts, DraftKings will cancel and refund all contest entries. DraftKings will consider a round canceled if the tour itself declares so.

Suspended or Shortened Tournaments

A golf tournament round may enter a suspended or postponed state due to weather, darkness, or some other reason. DraftKings will wait until the tournament’s officials make a ruling on the outcome of the suspension, postponement, or other delays,  before taking any actions related to paying out or canceling contest entries. If it becomes clear, as determined by DraftKings in its sole discretion, that the round will not be completed with all 18 holes being played, DraftKings will cancel and refund all contest entries.

MLB


Overview

Pick6 is a peer-to-peer daily fantasy sports (DFS) contest variant offered by DraftKings. Build a lineup, also known as your “Pick Set”, by choosing between 2-6 players and selecting whether you believe they will outperform their stat projections. Compete in contests against other users’ Pick Sets and win prizes by making the required number of correct picks.

he entries you compete against are determined by the number of picks you decide to make in your Pick Set (your “Pick Level”). Your Pick Set will only compete against entries of the same Pick Level. The pool of available athletes and their associated stat projections is called a “Pick Group”.

Minimum Play Requirements

For MLB, the player must make an appearance in the official MLB box score for the game in order to be considered as having met the minimum play requirements. Actions that get a player in the official box score include being listed in the official batting order, making at least 1 pitch, or making an appearance as a hitter, runner, or defensive substitute.

If a player does not meet the minimum play requirements in their game, all picks associated with that player will be scored as a loss, regardless of selecting more or less for the pick.

Scoring and Payouts

DraftKings uses statistics from third-party providers, such as, but not limited to, STATS, LLC, for the purposes of providing game results and real-time entertainment value to its end users. DraftKings may change third-party providers from time to time without notice. For more information, please contact DraftKings customer service at support@draftkings.com

Live scoring updates are strictly for the enjoyment of DraftKings customers. DraftKings’ official scoring validation process begins once all games within the Pick Group are final. This process ensures that DraftKings’ scoring matches official stat providers when contest results are finalized and paid out.

Once contests are finalized, a Pick Set status will change to “Completed”, and the Pick Set will move from the Live tab to the Recent tab on the My Picks page.

On occasion, official scorers may issue a stat-correction after games have ended and the official scoring validation process has completed. These corrections are rare, but can occur days after a game is played. Therefore, any changes to official scoring that occur after contests have been finalized will not impact those finalized contests. Conversely, if a correction needs to be made after contests are finalized due to a bug with the data feed or the finalization process, while extremely rare, the finalization process (including payment) may be reversed and redone correctly.

Pick stats and their more/less outcomes are intended to align with final game box scores at the time of Pick6 payouts, independent of contest payout timing for other DFS formats in the same sport and involving the same games. While rare, it is possible for a final stat amount on Pick6 to differ with other DFS formats based on when contests from each format were finalized and paid out.

Note: The official scoring validation process is solely to ensure that DraftKings contest results are determined based on official scoring. Delays during this process may occur as a result of data collection or other technical difficulties. DraftKings will not attempt to make judgments on scoring rulings.

Special Payouts Cases

A Prize Tier is defined as the amount of picks correct and the resulting award for an entry finishing with that number of correct picks. For example, a Prize Tier in a contest could award $500 split among all entries that got 6/6 picks correct and $200 split among all entries that got 5/6 picks correct.

What Happens if No One Finishes in a Prize Tier?

If no entry meets the requirements for an individual Prize Tier posted within a contest, DraftKings will award that tier's prizes to the highest (most picks correct) Prizing Tier. If no entries finish in any posted Prize Tiers,entries with the highest number of correct picks in that contest will be declared the winners and awarded an equal share of the contest’s guaranteed prize pool. In the event no entry has a single correct selection, no winner can be declared and DraftKings will refund all entry fees.  

Example Scenarios for When No Entries Qualify for a Prize Tier

The table below explains what course of action DraftKings will take in the event that 0 entries qualify for a posted Prize Tier. The example contest is a 6-Pick Level contest with the following prize structure:

  • $500 split among all entries with 6/6 picks correct.

  • $200 split among all entries with 5/6 picks correct.

  • $100 split among all entries with 4/6 picks correct.

  • Entries with 0/6, 1/6, 2/6, or 3/6 picks do not win a prize.

All scenarios assume the non-mentioned payout tiers have at least one qualifying entry. For example, “No entries with 6/6 correct” assumes there are entries that got 5/6 and 4/6 correct.

ScenarioOutcome
No entries with 6/6 correctThe $500 for 6/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 5/6 correct ($700 new total prize value for 5/6).
No entries with 5/6 correctThe $200 for 5/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($700 new total prize value for 6/6).
No entries with 4/6 correctThe $100 for 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($600 new total prize value for 6/6).
No entries with 6/6 correct and no entries with 5/6 correctThe combined $700 for 6/6 and 5/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 4/6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 4/6).
No entries with 6/6 correct and no entries with 4/6 correctThe combined $600 for 6/6 and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 5/6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 5/6).
No entries with 5/6 correct and no entries with 4/6 correctThe combined $300 for 5/6 and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 6/6).
All entries have 3/6 or fewer correctThe combined $800 for 6/6, 5/6, and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with the highest number of correct entries (e.g., 3/6 correct;if no entries with 3/6 correct , then 2/6 correct, etc.).

In the case of a contest in which all entries get 0 picks correct, regardless of Pick Level, all entry fees are returned back to players.


Is It Possible for an Entry with Fewer Correct Picks to Win More than an Entry with More Correct Picks?

On occasion, more entries could finish in a higher Prize Tier compared to the one below it. For example, many more entries getting 6/6 picks correct than 5/6 picks correct. This can lead to the per-entry prizing amount for getting 5/6 correct being higher than the per-entry prizing amount for 6/6 entries because entries within a Prize Tier split the prize.

If an entry in a lower Prize Tier is awarded a higher per-entry prizing amount than an entry from a higher Prize Tier, DraftKings will manually credit entries in the higher Prize Tier the difference between the higher prize awarded to winners in the lower Prize Tier and the prize awarded to winners in the higher Prize Tier. This credit may occur after contest payouts.


Example for Credits When a Lower Tier Makes More Per Entry Than a Higher One

In this example, assume a 6-pick Pick6 contest awards $500 in prizes split among all entries that got 6/6 picks correct. The Prize Tier below it awards $200 in prizes split among all entries that got 5/6 picks correct.

If 100 entries in the contest got 6/6 correct, that $500 payout would award $5 for each of those entries ($500 / 100 entries = $5 per entry). If only 25 entries got 5/6 correct in the same contest, that Prize Tier’s $200 payout would award $8 for each of those entries ($200 / 25 entries = $8 per entry).

Because entries in the 5/6 Prize Tier earned more than the entries in the 6/6 Prize Tier, DraftKings will manually credit each player with entries that got 6/6 picks correct $3 per entry (the actual per entry difference between the 6/6 and 5/6 Prize Tiers). There is no change to the prizing for entries that finished in the 5/6 Prize Tier.

Pick Set Requirements

Eligible Pick6 Pick Sets must contain players representing at least two different teams.

Once a player is selected, they cannot be selected again for a different pick in the same Pick Set. For example, an MLB player can be picked for hits or total bases, but not both.

Player Pool

Once stat projections for each pick are published they will not be changed.

DraftKings reserves the right to add picks to a Pick Group at its discretion after the initial group of picks has been published. Pick options will not be removed from the pool once published. However, a pick will be graded as a loss if the player does not meet the minimum play requirement, regardless if the pick is more or less. Additionally, picks that remain in the pool can be disabled from being added to future Pick Sets (for a reason such as an OUT injury designation).

Pick groups will only contain athletes from one sport. In other words, it is not possible to have an MLB pick and an NBA pick in the same Pick Set. Picks must be made within the same Pick Group. The Pick Group is a particular set of games and available picks. To change Pick Groups, there is a filter on the Home pick experience.

Pick Set Edits

Pick Sets may be edited at any time leading up to games. Each individual player will become "locked" at the scheduled start time of their team’s game. A locked player cannot be added or removed from a Pick Set. Locked picks for all entries are displayed on the My Picks page.

Edits for Pick6 are done at the Pick Set level. Therefore, any swaps made to a Pick Set will be applied to all contest entries of that Pick Set.

When editing a Pick Set, the original Pick Level cannot be changed. For example, if a Pick Set was originally created with 5 picks, any edit to that Pick Set must contain 5 total picks to be valid.

If the scheduled start time for a game changes after contests for a Pick Group containing that game become available, DraftKings will take measures to ensure the change is reflected on the pick experience and for Pick Set editing purposes. In the rare case that a game starts before the scheduled start time, all players within that game will become locked as soon as our feed reflects that the game has begun. Additionally, any swaps that were made after the real-life start time of the game will result in those Pick Sets being disqualified and refunded.

Canceled, Postponed, and Rescheduled Games

In the event that a game is canceled or postponed & rescheduled to a time outside the original scoring period, the game will be disabled from the Pick Group. Picks from that game will be graded as losses. Players will become locked if the start time of their game passes. In some cases, if the start time of a disabled game has not yet been reached, DraftKings may move the start time of that disabled game to be equal to the start time of the latest game in the Pick Group in order to allow for those players to be unlocked and swappable, provided DraftKings could move the start time before the disabled game’s original start time passed.

The scoring period for MLB is defined as the timeframe between the scheduled start of the first game within the Pick Group and 11:59 PM ET on the day on the last scheduled game within the Pick Group.

DraftKings may choose to adjust the scoring period for a Pick Group at its sole discretion to accommodate schedule changes any time before 12:00 AM ET on the day after the Pick Group is scheduled to start.

DraftKings may move a Pick Group or a game’s start time if it is known that a game will be starting at an earlier or later defined time than originally announced. 

Games are "known" to be canceled or postponed once their status is updated as such by DraftKings’ MLB stats provider(s).

If canceled or rescheduled games result in a Pick Group including zero active games, all contests for that Pick Group will be canceled and refunded.

Suspended or Shortened Games

If the MLB declares a game "suspended" or “postponed” then the statistics generated before the game is stopped will count in Pick Groups containing said game. Any statistics generated outside the scoring period will not be included. The scoring period for MLB is defined as the timeframe between the scheduled start of the first game within the Pick Group and 11:59 PM ET on the day of the last scheduled game within the Pick Group.

In the event that a game is suspended due to an injury or other “Force Majeure” type instance (determined at the sole discretion of DraftKings), and the game does NOT continue by 11:59 PM ET on the day of the last scheduled game within the Pick Group, then the following applies:

  • If the Pick Group involves two or more games, all stats accrued up until the time of stoppage will count towards the grading of picks.

  • If the game is part of a single-game set, the following will apply:

    • If the suspension occurs before the bottom of the 5th inning,the Pick Group will be refunded.

    • If the suspension occurs at or after the bottom of the 5th inning, the Pick Group will be paid out as scored at the time of suspension.

Special Payouts Cases

The table below explains what course of action DraftKings will take in the event that 0 entries qualify for a posted Prize Tier. The example contest is a 6-Pick Level contest with the following prize structure:

  • $500 split among all entries with 6/6 picks correct.

  • $200 split among all entries with 5/6 picks correct.

  • $100 split among all entries with 4/6 picks correct.

  • Entries with 0/6, 1/6, 2/6, or 3/6 picks do not win a prize.

All scenarios assume the non-mentioned payout tiers have at least one qualifying entry. For example, “No entries with 6/6 correct” assumes there are entries that got 5/6 and 4/6 correct.


ScenarioOutcome
No entries with 6/6 correctThe $500 for 6/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 5/6 correct ($700 new total prize value for 5/6).
No entries with 5/6 correctThe $200 for 5/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($700 new total prize value for 6/6).
No entries with 4/6 correctThe $100 for 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($600 new total prize value for 6/6).
No entries with 6/6 correct and no entries with 5/6 correctThe combined $700 for 6/6 and 5/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 4/6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 4/6).
No entries with 6/6 correct and no entries with 4/6 correctThe combined $600 for 6/6 and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 5/6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 5/6).
No entries with 5/6 correct and no entries with 4/6 correctThe combined $300 for 5/6 and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 6/6).
All entries have 3/6 or fewer correctThe combined $800 for 6/6, 5/6, and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with the highest number of correct entries (e.g., 3/6 correct;if no entries with 3/6 correct , then 2/6 correct, etc.).

In the case of a contest in which all entries get 0 picks correct, regardless of Pick Level, all entry fees are returned back to players.


Is It Possible for an Entry with Fewer Correct Picks to Win More than an Entry with More Correct Picks?

On occasion, more entries could finish in a higher Prize Tier compared to the one below it. For example, many more entries getting 6/6 picks correct than 5/6 picks correct. This can lead to the per-entry prizing amount for getting 5/6 correct being higher than the per-entry prizing amount for 6/6 entries because entries within a Prize Tier split the prize.

If an entry in a lower Prize Tier is awarded a higher per-entry prizing amount than an entry from a higher Prize Tier, DraftKings will manually credit entries in the higher Prize Tier the difference between the higher prize awarded to winners in the lower Prize Tier and the prize awarded to winners in the higher Prize Tier. This credit may occur after contest payouts.


Example for Credits When a Lower Tier Makes More Per Entry Than a Higher One

In this example, assume a 6-pick Pick6 contest awards $500 in prizes split among all entries that got 6/6 picks correct. The Prize Tier below it awards $200 in prizes split among all entries that got 5/6 picks correct.

If 100 entries in the contest got 6/6 correct, that $500 payout would award $5 for each of those entries ($500 / 100 entries = $5 per entry). If only 25 entries got 5/6 correct in the same contest, that Prize Tier’s $200 payout would award $8 for each of those entries ($200 / 25 entries = $8 per entry).

Because entries in the 5/6 Prize Tier earned more than the entries in the 6/6 Prize Tier, DraftKings will manually credit each player with entries that got 6/6 picks correct $3 per entry (the actual per entry difference between the 6/6 and 5/6 Prize Tiers). There is no change to the prizing for entries that finished in the 5/6 Prize Tier.

Pick Set Requirements

Once a fighter is selected, they cannot be selected again for a different pick in the same Pick Set.

Fighter Pool

Once stat projections for each pick are published for a specific fight they will not be changed. In the case of a rescheduled fight with new opponents, DraftKings reserves the right to publish new picks for the fighters involved in the rescheduled fight. However,any picks associated with the originally scheduled fight will be marked as incorrect, even if one of the original fighters is rescheduled to a new fight within the same Pick Group.

DraftKings reserves the right to add picks to a Pick Group at its discretion after the initial group of picks has been published. Pick options will not be removed from the pool once published. However, a pick will be graded as a loss if the fighter does not meet the minimum play requirement, regardless if the pick is more or less. Additionally, picks that remain in the pool can be disabled from being added to future Pick Sets (for a reason such as an OUT injury designation or being related to a canceled fight).

Pick Groups will only contain fighters. In other words, it is not possible to have a UFC pick and an NFL pick in the same Pick Set. Picks must also be made within the same Pick Group. The Pick Group is a particular set of fights and available picks. To change Pick Groups, there is a filter on the Home pick experience.

Pick Set Edits

Pick Sets may be edited at any time leading up to the Pick Group start time. Each fighter will become "locked" at the scheduled start time of the Pick Group, not necessarily the start time of their scheduled fight. A locked fighter cannot be added or removed from a Pick Set. Locked picks for all entries are displayed on the My Picks page.

Edits for Pick6 are done at the Pick Set level. Therefore, any swaps made to a Pick Set will be applied to all contest entries of that Pick Set.

When editing a Pick Set, the original Pick Level cannot be changed. For example, if a Pick Set was originally created with 5 picks, any edit to that Pick Set must contain 5 total picks to be valid.

If the scheduled Pick Group start time changes after contests for a Pick Group become available, DraftKings will take measures to ensure the change is reflected on the pick experience and for Pick Set editing purposes. In the rare case that a fight within a Pick Group starts before the scheduled start time of the Pick Group, all fighters within the Pick Group will become locked as soon as our feed reflects that the fight has begun. Additionally, any swaps or new Pick Sets that were made after the real-life start time of the fight will result in those Pick Sets being disqualified and refunded.

Canceled, Postponed, and Rescheduled Events

In the event that an entire fight card is canceled, all player entries will be canceled and refunded. If an entire fight card is postponed or delayed for a reasonable amount of time, as determined by DraftKings in its sole discretion, the contests may remain live until which time the event is completed. After final results become available, the contests will be finalized and settled.

Canceled, Postponed, and Rescheduled Fights

In the event that a fight is canceled, any picks associated with the originally scheduled fight will be marked as incorrect, even if one of the original fighters is rescheduled to a new fight within the same Pick Group. DraftKings reserves the right to publish new picks for the fighters involved in the rescheduled fight.

While rare, it is possible for a final stat amount on Pick6 to differ with other DFS formats based on when contests from each format were finalized and paid out.

Note: The official scoring validation process is solely to ensure that DraftKings contest results are determined based on official scoring. Delays during this process may occur as a result of data collection or other technical difficulties. DraftKings will not attempt to make judgments on scoring rulings.

ScenarioOutcome
No entries with 6/6 correctThe $500 for 6/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 5/6 correct ($700 new total prize value for 5/6).

No entries with 4/6 correctThe $100 for 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($600 new total prize value for 6/6).
No entries with 6/6 correct and no entries with 5/6 correctThe combined $700 for 6/6 and 5/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 4/6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 4/6).
No entries with 6/6 correct and no entries with 4/6 correctThe combined $600 for 6/6 and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 5/6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 5/6).
No entries with 5/6 correct and no entries with 4/6 correctThe combined $300 for 5/6 and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with 6/6 correct ($800 new total prize value for 6/6).
All entries have 3/6 or fewer correctThe combined $800 for 6/6, 5/6, and 4/6 correct is awarded to the entries with the highest number of correct entries (e.g., 3/6 correct;if no entries with 3/6 correct , then 2/6 correct, etc.).

In the case of a contest in which all entries get 0 picks correct, regardless of Pick Level, all entry fees are returned back to players.


Is It Possible for an Entry with Fewer Correct Picks to Win More than an Entry with More Correct Picks?

On occasion, more entries could finish in a higher Prize Tier compared to the one below it. For example, many more entries getting 6/6 picks correct than 5/6 picks correct. This can lead to the per-entry prizing amount for getting 5/6 correct being higher than the per-entry prizing amount for 6/6 entries because entries within a Prize Tier split the prize.

If an entry in a lower Prize Tier is awarded a higher per-entry prizing amount than an entry from a higher Prize Tier, DraftKings will manually credit entries in the higher Prize Tier the difference between the higher prize awarded to winners in the lower Prize Tier and the prize awarded to winners in the higher Prize Tier. This credit may occur after contest payouts.


Example for Credits When a Lower Tier Makes More Per Entry Than a Higher One

In this example, assume a 6-pick Pick6 contest awards $500 in prizes split among all entries that got 6/6 picks correct. The Prize Tier below it awards $200 in prizes split among all entries that got 5/6 picks correct.

If 100 entries in the contest got 6/6 correct, that $500 payout would award $5 for each of those entries ($500 / 100 entries = $5 per entry). If only 25 entries got 5/6 correct in the same contest, that Prize Tier’s $200 payout would award $8 for each of those entries ($200 / 25 entries = $8 per entry).

Because entries in the 5/6 Prize Tier earned more than the entries in the 6/6 Prize Tier, DraftKings will manually credit each player with entries that got 6/6 picks correct $3 per entry (the actual per entry difference between the 6/6 and 5/6 Prize Tiers). There is no change to the prizing for entries that finished in the 5/6 Prize Tier.

Pick Set Requirements

Eligible WNBA Pick Sets must contain players representing at least two different teams.<

Once a player is selected, they cannot be selected again for a different pick in the same Pick Set. For example, a WNBA player can be picked for 3-pointers made OR turnovers, not both.

Player Pool

Once stat projections for each pick are published they will not be changed.

DraftKings reserves the right to add picks to a Pick Group at its discretion after the initial group of picks has been published. Pick options will not be removed from the pool once published. However, a pick will be graded as a loss if the player does not meet the minimum play requirement, regardless if the pick is more or less. Additionally, picks that remain in the pool can be disabled from being added to future Pick Sets (for a reason such as an OUT injury designation).

Pick groups will only contain athletes from one sport. In other words, it is not possible to have a WNBA pick and a MLB pick in the same Pick Set. Picks must be made within the same Pick Group. The Pick Group is a particular set of games and available picks. To change Pick Groups, there is a filter on the Home pick experience.

Pick Set Edits

Pick Sets may be edited at any time leading up to games. Each individual player will become "locked" at the scheduled start time of their team’s game. A locked player cannot be added or removed from a Pick Set. Locked picks for all entries are displayed on the My Picks page.

Edits for Pick6 are done at the Pick Set level. Therefore, any swaps made to a Pick Set will be applied to all contest entries of that Pick Set.

When editing a Pick Set, the original Pick Level cannot be changed. For example, if a Pick Set was originally created with 5 picks, any edit to that Pick Set must contain 5 total picks to be valid.

If the scheduled start time for a game changes after contests for a Pick Group containing that game become available, DraftKings will take measures to ensure the change is reflected on the pick experience and for Pick Set editing purposes. In the rare case that a game starts before the scheduled start time, all players within that game will become locked as soon as our feed reflects that the game has begun. Additionally, any swaps that were made after the real-life start time of the game will result in those Pick Sets being disqualified and refunded.

Canceled, Postponed, and Rescheduled Games

In the event that a game is canceled or postponed & rescheduled to a time within the original scoring period, the game will be included in the Pick Group and picks listed to play in that game can be graded as either a win or a loss (subject to minimum play requirement).

If a game is rescheduled for a time OUTSIDE the original scoring period, the game will be disabled from the Pick Group. Picks from that game will be graded as losses. Players will become locked if the start time of their game passes. In some cases, if the start time of a disabled game has not yet been reached, DraftKings may move the start time of that disabled game to be equal to the start time of the latest game in the Pick Group in order to allow for those players to be unlocked and swappable, provided DraftKings could move the start time before the disabled game’s original start time passed.

The scoring period for the WNBA is defined as the timeframe between the scheduled start of the first game within the Pick Group and 11:59 PM ET on the day after the last scheduled game within the Pick Group.

DraftKings may choose to adjust the scoring period for a Pick Group at its sole discretion to accommodate schedule changes any time before 12:00 AM ET on the day after the Pick Group is scheduled to start.

DraftKings may move a Pick Group or a game’s start time if it is known that a game will be starting at an earlier or later defined time than originally announced.

Games are "known" to be canceled or postponed once their status is updated as such by DraftKings’ WNBA stats provider(s).

DraftKings may move the start time of a game if the WNBA has given an official definitive new start time and the original start time of the game has not yet been reached. Games with a “delayed” start (due to weather or otherwise) that have no definite new start time will stay on their original start time.

If canceled or rescheduled games result in a Pick Group including zero active games, all contests for that Pick Group will be canceled and refunded.

Suspended or Shortened Games

If the WNBA declares a game "suspended" then the statistics generated before the game is suspended will count in Pick Groups containing said game. Any statistics generated outside the scoring period will not be included. The scoring period for WNBA is defined as the timeframe between the scheduled start of the first game within the Pick Group and 11:59 PM ET on the day after the last scheduled game within the Pick Group.

In the event that a game is suspended due to an injury or other “Force Majeure” type instance (determined at the sole discretion of DraftKings), and the game does NOT continue by 11:59 PM ET on the day after the last scheduled game within the Pick Group, then the following applies:

  • If the Pick Group involves two or more games, all stats accrued up until the time of stoppage will count towards the grading of picks.

  • If the game is part of a single-game set, the following will apply:

    • If the suspension occurs in the first half of the game, the Pick Group will be refunded.

    • If the suspension occurs at halftime, or in the second half of the game, the Pick Group will be paid out as scored at the time of suspension.
