The Ultimate Guide to Winning Big with DraftKings Pick6

DraftKings has revolutionized the fantasy sports industry once again with its innovative Pick6 format, offering sports enthusiasts a way to test their knowledge and intuition.

This engaging game combines strategy, sports expertise, and a bit of luck, providing a thrilling experience that's both rewarding and, might we say, highly entertaining.

While it's a one-of-a-kind offering, it is worth mentioning that DraftKings Pick6 is a spinoff of some other DFS-style game formats such as that of Underdog Fantasy and PrizePicks.

However, with the big name of DraftKings behind it, Pick6 stands out among the competition. We think you'll like what they're bringing to the Pick'em market.

What Makes Pick6 Stand Out?

Fundamentally, Pick6 is about precision and prediction. Straight and to the point.

Unlike traditional DFS games that require drafting entire teams, Pick6 focuses on selecting a small group of athletes and making predictions about their performance.

This twist adds a layer of strategy and depth that's surprisingly (yet refreshingly) different. 

What undoubtedly sets Pick6 apart is its peer-to-peer competition model. Instead of going up against the house or predetermined odds like you would with a sportsbook, you're directly competing with other Pick6 players. 

This format fosters a community of engaged sports fans, all trying to grab a piece of the prize pool, making every selection and game outcome feel personal and impactful — which it is.

Sure, there is a bit of commission on each play, but that's to be expected when you're playing peer-to-peer. That's about the only downside we could find.

How to Play DraftKings Pick6

Playing Pick6 is straightforward but requires a strategic mindset. Here's a breakdown of how to get started—

  • Build Your Pick Set. Select between 2 to 6 athletes from the same sport (i.e., NBA, NHL, NFL, etc.). For each athlete, you'll decide if they will achieve "More" or "Less" than a specific statistical outcome in their upcoming game. This is where your sports knowledge comes into play, as making accurate predictions is key to success.

  • Enter Contests. After finalizing your Pick Set, determine your Entry Fees. Each dollar you enter equates to one contest entry, allowing you to spread your chances across multiple contests. The distribution of entries is strategically managed to maximize your engagement and potential rewards.

  • Win Big. Prizes in Pick6 are guaranteed and known in advance, which means you'll know exactly what's at stake. If your predictions hit the mark, you'll win a share of the prize pool based on the accuracy of your picks.

That's all there is to it.

There are really only two steps, and the third is just the bonus that you're after. We'll get more into the details of how it works.

Strategy and Flexibility

A distinctive feature of Pick6 is the flexible contest entry system. This is one of the things we love the most about the new DFS platform.

Your entries are automatically distributed among eligible contests, prioritizing those where you have the fewest entries or no entries with your current Pick Set.

This system ensures that you're always in the game, maximizing your chances for success.

That's not to say someone can't outpick you, but the challenge is for you to take on.

The Thrill of the Win: Prizes and Payouts

The prize structure in Pick6 is designed to reward accuracy and risk-taking. The more you risk and the more accurate you are with your picks, the more you win. 

For example, in an NBA contest with a $10,000 total prize pool, correctly predicting all 5 out of 5 outcomes could net you a significant portion of the $8,000 grand prize, while getting 4 out of 5 right still offers a chance at a slice of $2,000. 

This tiered prize system adds more excitement, as every prediction counts towards your winnings. If you stick with a 2-pick, the prizes aren't as much as if you went all in on a 6-pick.

On top of that, the Estimated Prizing feature gives you a glimpse of potential winnings based on historical data, adding to the anticipation and strategic planning of your game play.

Why Pick6 Is a Game-Changer

Pick6 isn't just another fantasy sports game; it's a testament to DraftKings' commitment to innovation and community engagement.

This is fairly obvious the first time you sign into the platform (which you can use your current DraftKings DFS or Sportsbook login).

By emphasizing strategic, knowledgeable play over sheer luck or volume, Pick6 offers a more nuanced and satisfying experience. 

Just take a look at the layout and how easy the games are to get in on. You're immediately greeted with picks from the various games going on that day. You don't have to pick all of them, but choose the players you think have the best chance of getting it right.

Whether you're a seasoned sports aficionado who's able to rattle off stats or a casual fan looking to get more involved, Pick6 provides a platform to showcase your skills, make predictions, and potentially win big. We're hoping you win it big.

Think DraftKings Pick6 Is For You?

DraftKings Pick6 marries the excitement of sports betting with the strategy of fantasy sports, creating an entirely new playing field for sports fans. 

Its unique peer-to-peer format, strategic entry system, and guaranteed prizes make every game not just a bet but a thrilling competition of wit, knowledge, and sports savvy. 

Whether you're in it for the fun, the competition, or the potential prizes, Pick6 offers a compelling and engaging experience that's hard to beat.
