Contest Structure

Welcome to the NBA Draft 2017 Challenge (“NBADC”). The NBADC will take place solely through the Official One-Day Fantasy Game of the NBA hosted by FanDuel at fanduel.com/nba. The NBADC will consist of four (4) Official NBA One-Day Fantasy Basketball Contests (each a “Contest”), with each Contest running on a separate day during the NBA Conference Finals between May 14, 2017 and May 22, 2017 (“Promotional Period”). The NBADC will have a cumulative leaderboard (“Leaderboard”) to track the aggregate of each participant's top two (2) scores (“Total Score”) from all four (4) Contests. The exact dates of the Promotional Period are subject to change based on the NBA Conference Finals schedule. Participants may enter each Contest through the Contest landing page, available here: fanduel.com/nba.

Each Contest will award 150 prizes (see below). Exact prizing will be specified in the entry screen for each Contest. The prizing structure will be tiered, with at least the top 150 position levels in each Contest winning a prize (each position level may include multiple contest players). In the event a prize is unavailable, FanDuel will use its sole discretion to provide the winner with a suitable alternate prize. FanDuel will set the maximum number of participants prior to each Contest. All prizes are non-transferrable. In addition, the NBADC will award prizing based on users' Total Score as shown on the Leaderboard. Users must enter a minimum of two (2) Contests to be eligible for any Leaderboard prizing.

Each Contest is a single entry contest and no entry fee is required to enter. Any instance of registering multiple accounts on FanDuel in order to gain more than one entry into a Contest will result in automatic disqualification from the Contest and the NBADC as well as potential suspension from FanDuel.
