Sites With The Best Promotions
There have been a number of daily fantasy sports sites popping up seemingly out of nowhere over the last few years. As each new site is added to the market it becomes increasingly difficult for a new player to decide where to deposit money.
More often than not, the deciding factor for where a player ends up playing comes down to the number of promotions offered as well as the bonus offered for first time depositors.
Variety of Promotions
While most sites do offer promotions for daily fantasy sports with some element of regularity, a decent amount of them tend to favor promotions for one particular sport more than any other. If you’re someone who anticipates playing only one type of fantasy sport (football, basketball, baseball, golf, etc) it is vital that you know how often a given site offers promotions and what sport there are most often promotions for.
Two of the best sites for offering a consistent batch of promotions that are fairly evenly spread across the daily fantasy sports types are Fan Duel and Draft Kings. At any given time, both of these sites tend to have at least one promotion for each in-season sport. Draft Day and Draft Street do offer their fair share of promotions, but they tend to be dated and often go weeks at a time without updating their offering of promos.
Another factor in determining whether a promotion is worth entering into or not is the amount and quality of the players you will be facing as well as the top prizes. Because Fan Duel and Draft Kings are the two most popular daily fantasy sports sites around, they regularly stack promotions with more players and larger prizes than any of their competitors.
Just to give you an idea just how big the prize pools can be, Draft Kings recently offered a promotion with a $1 million prize pool. The first place finisher in this promotion walked away with $100,000; these are prizes you can find on few other sites.

In most cases, if a site offers any type of promotions, they usually also offer satellites that allow you to qualify for the promotion without paying the full entry fee. Though you may not have multiple hundreds of dollars to spare solely to take part in a certain promotion, some have satellites that will cost you as little as $2 and give you the chance to win your way into the promotion.
