In one of the most unique promotions we’ve seen, Profanity Sports, a daily fantasy sports site that happily takes real money play from the United States, is sending one of its members to the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles. The ESPYs dole out accolades to sports superstars and can be seen on ESPN. One lucky Profanity Sports user will be at the gala in person, undoubtedly gawking at athletes and the assembled media alike.
Sign up for Profanity Sportsand be sure to use the bonus code FIVES.
The grand prize is the opportunity for you and a friend to head to Los Angeles. You’ll get two round-trip flights to the City of Angels and a complimentary one-bedroom suite to call home during the ESPYs. You’ll get two passes to the awards show, $500 in spending money to wine and dine yourself, and private transportation to and from the L.A. airport. It’s a unique prize package that we’ve never seen anywhere before.
Qualification for the ESPYs runs from February 28th to April 15th, which is a span of seven weeks. Thirty players will enter the finale of the promotion. According to text found on Profanity’s website, “The finals begin on Monday, April 16th with a one-day 50/50 game. The top half of the field moves on to Wednesday, April 18th, where we will have a one-day Grand Prize Game. The user with the highest score that day will win a trip to the ESPYs.”
Three weekly qualifying routes exist: the highest daily NBA game score each week, where a week is defined as Monday to Sunday; the highest NBA cash total each week, which can come from Daily, Multi-Day, and Survivor NBA games; and the champion of the four-day GPP Featured Game each week. There are also three different Survivor Challenges that will send their top three finishers to the ESPY finals.
It’s important to note that in order to win the ESPY prize package, you need to live in the United States or Canada. Residents of other countries can claim the cash value of the prize by e-mailing Profanity Sports’ support staff. So, no matter where you’re from, you can put your daily fantasy sports skills to the test at Profanity Sports and try to win your way to the ESPYs in L.A.
As if a trip to Southern California to see sports history weren’t enough of an incentive to check out Profanity Sports, you can get entry into an exclusive $300 freeroll on Wednesday, March 14th at 7:00pm ET that’s only open to players who create their Profanity Sports accounts through PocketFives. No one else will be allowed access to this freeroll, which will take the form of a daily NBA contest. If you’ve never played daily fantasy basketball before, the freeroll is a cheap way – $0 – to give it a shot.
The $300 freeroll that’s only open to Profanity players tracked to PocketFives features a basic salary cap format where you’ll build your NBA dream team for one night with a $100 million budget. You’ll be wise to exploit factors like injuries, match-ups, and streaks when picking your team.
That night, the Chicago Bulls will face off against the Miami Heat in a game that’s sure to feature plenty of players that could be considered for your one-day squad. Eleven other NBA games will also be played.
