Vancouver, BC, Canada / ACCESSWIRE / August 21, 2014 / DraftTeam Fantasy Sports Inc. ("DraftTeam" or "the Company")(CSE:DFS)(OTCPink:DTFS-F) is pleased to announce that it will launch a suite of new Pick 'Em games, including a new daily $1 Million Perfect Roster Bonus starting August 25th, 2014, and its $100,000 Tournament of Champions for its Daily Fantasy Sports platform DraftTeam.com.
In response to customer demand and emerging trends, DraftTeam has created three new salary-cap-free Pick 'Em games; Pic3, Pic5 and Pic9. These fantasy games are available in the four major sports, NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL and geared towards players who like the fast-paced style of daily fantasy sports without the need to stay under strict salary structures. These thrilling games will allow members the ability to play more games, more often and in less time than it takes to draft their teams using regular salary caps.
As a bonus for members who play the Pic9 format, DraftTeam is offering a daily $1 Million Perfect Roster Bonus to anyone who can correctly select the top performing daily fantasy athletes in each of the nine positions. This bonus is in addition to the regular cash prizes available for each contest and costs nothing extra to play other than the standard entry fees.
DraftTeam.com is also proud to announce the return of its annual $100,000 Guaranteed Tournament of Champions. With qualifying already underway in fantasy baseball, members will also be able to qualify through football, basketball and hockey for the finals that take place NFL Week #16 on Sunday, December 21st, 2014. Qualifying tickets are as little as $2 and it only takes "One Win & You're In!" for a chance to win a share of $100,000 and the $25,000 first place prize.
"We are excited to launch this new suite of Pick 'Em games and larger prizes. We see a trend from users towards a faster paced Daily Fantasy Sports experience so we've accommodated this demand by offering improved roster management tools and a new quick draft format. Our continued member growth has enabled us to increase our prize pools and offer more guaranteed contests than ever before. We're even starting off week #1 of football season with a $10,000 Guaranteed NFL Kickoff Tournament whereby certain qualifying depositors will be able to gain free entry, "said John Buttedahl, CEO, DraftTeam Fantasy Sports Inc.
