The Big Trey Payday is the new promotion from DraftKings Sportsbook. In fact, this promotion actually works for DFS players at DraftKings as well, but our focus is on the sports betting side of their operation, so that’s what we’ll key in on here.
The Big Trey Payday gives users the opportunity to get a free entry into a $100,000 contest this week. This promotion will be active on the NBA’s Opening Night on December 22, on the big card for December 23, and on the Christmas Day games on December 25.
You do have to opt-in to the promotion before you can participate, so check out the Sportsbook Promos section to ensure that you have checked the right box.
Quite simply, all you have to do is opt-in to the promotion. No purchase necessary, no bet required, and you don’t have to sell your soul to the gambling gods to hope for the best.
All you need is a three-pointer to be hit in the final minute of the fourth quarter of select games and you’ll get a free ticket to a $100,000 contest this week presented by DraftKings.
The select games are:
Warriors vs. Nets
Clippers vs. Lakers
Bucks vs. Celtics
Mavericks vs. Suns
Pelicans vs. Heat
Warriors vs. Bucks
Mavericks vs. Lakers
Clippers vs. Nuggets
Like we said, all you need is to be able to opt-in to the promotion. On the sportsbook side, that means having an active account in one of the states serviced by DraftKings. Those states are Indiana, New Jersey, Colorado, Illinois, Tennessee, Iowa, and West Virginia.
Sign up for DraftKings in any one of those states and you’ll receive a Welcome Bonus on your First Deposit up to $1,000. The bonus amount will be split between a Risk-Free Wager and a Deposit Match Bonus.
This is not a new user bonus, though. So you may want to look at signing up on Tuesday for the +75 Boosted Odds promotion on Opening Night or the 100-1 Boosted Odds promotion that runs from December 23-30. You’ll still be able to get your free ticket to the $100,000 contest because that promotion is active for new and existing users.
In other words, this is the best week that we have seen to sign up for DraftKings Sportsbook.
