Do you like MMA? Of course you do. How would you like to win a free, VIP trip to UFC 189 in July? Well, Heavy’s partners at DraftKings have created the UFC 189 VIP Trip contest for Saturday, May 23, which will send the winner and a guest to Las Vegas for the ultimate MMA experience.
You can turn your $3 entry fee for Saturday’s (May 23) contest into a free VIP trip to Vegas for UFC 189, which includes travel and hotel, weigh-in tickets, VIP tickets to UFC 189, pool parties hosted by the Octagon Girls, tickets to the UFC Fan Expo and an event poster signed by Dana White. Not a bad deal at all.
And if you’re new to DraftKings and just made your first account deposit, you will receive a $3 voucher which can be redeemed to play in the contest for free. The voucher expires a year from when it was issued.
UFC 189 is set for July 11 and it features a main event of Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor in a Featherweight title fight. The contest calls for the winner to be able to travel from July 8-12 and the prize may not be substituted for another event nor is it redeemable for cash.
As a first-time user, when you sign up and are prompted for a DraftKings promo code, enter “HEAVY.”
The VIP contest will consist of choosing fighters for your fantasy lineups from Saturday night’s UFC 187. Lineups must be set by 6:30 p.m. Eastern on May 23.
The game is open to the first 2,100 participants, so reserve your spot now.
Also for first-time players, when you sign up you get a 100 percent deposit bonus up to $600. You put in $600, DraftKings will match your $600.
The rules are simple: Fill a lineup of 5 fighters with a fixed salary cap of $50,000. The better your selected fighters do, the better your fantasy team does, and the better the chance you’ll have to win a trip to UFC 189. The player pool will consist of all fighters expected to be participating in UFC 187. Of the full card, you must select 5 total fighters for your fantasy team.
Editors note: Heavy’s partners at DraftKings have entered the auto racing fantasy game business with one-day contests designed to make you big cash.
