If you’re looking for some fantasy sports DFS action without drafting a full team, or playing through a full season, PrizePicks may be one of your new best friends. PrizePicks offers fantasy players a new, simpler way to play fantasy sports for real money.
PrizePicks is classified as a DFS game, but it has a lot of similarities to props. We’ll run through everything you need to know about PrizePicks in this post.
PrizePicks is a fantasy sports platform that was founded in 2018 and is headquartered in the USA.
Unlike other popular DFS platforms like DraftKings and FanDuel, you play against the house on PrizePicks — not against other players. This can offer a nice change of pace for fantasy sports players, as you aren’t up against hundreds of thousands of other contestants every slate. Instead, all you have to do is beat the lines.
PrizePicks is available on the web or via a mobile app, available on both the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. You can sign up using this PrizePicks registration link and code FTN for a deposit bonus.
Flex plays are essentially hedged picks. You win the top prize if you get 100% of the card right, but you can still win some money (or make some of your entry fee back) even if you don’t get everything right.
Pick 5 players: Go 5-of-5 to win 10x, go 4-of-5 to win 2x, or go 3-of-5 to win 0.4x
Pick 4 players: Go 4-of-4 to win 5x, go 3-of-4 to win 1.5x
Pick 3 players: Go 3-of-3 to win 2.25x, go 2-of-3 to win 1.25x
Pick 2 players: Go 2-of-2 to win 2x, go 1-of-2 to win 0.5x
