Daily Number is the newest, simplest, and most exciting way to play daily fantasy sports. Rather than competing against other users, your fantasy sports lineup competes against a fixed target score known as the Daily Number. No need to outthink the pros and other stat crunching nerds. Simply outscore the target and win.
Daily Number also gives you full control over your lineup and potential payouts. For football, pick any 7 professional football players you want. No salary cap (or advanced college calculus) required.
The strength of your lineup will determine your potential winnings. Pick all superstars for the best shot at victory, but expect a modest prize. Or fill your lineup with role players for the opportunity to win BIG. Let’s play!
ENTERING A CONTEST
Once you have created an account with Daily Number, you may enter contests that are available on the app’s home screen.
Before entering any paid contest, you will be required to verify your age, identity, and current location. You must be 18 or older (19 in NE and 21 in MA) and located in AK, AR, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, KS, KY, IL, MA, MD, MI, MN, NE, NM, NC, ND, OK, OR, RI, SC, SD, UT, WV, WI, or WY. If you are determined to be eligible, you may enter a contest for real money by selecting your desired entry fee. Entry fees are deducted from your available balance at the time you submit your lineup.
If you are not eligible for a real money contest you may enjoy the free to play experience, but you are blocked from depositing funds, entering paid contests, and being eligible for cash prizes
You are allowed to have a limit of 5 active lineups at a single time.
CONTEST START TIME
Contests start at the scheduled start time of the first game that is included in the contest. Start times are posted in the app for each contest.
EDITING & CANCELLING LINEUPS
You will not be able to edit a lineup once it has been submitted. However, you may cancel a lineup at anytime before the contest starts by selecting “Cancel Entry” from your Upcoming Lineups screen. When a lineup for a paid contest is cancelled, the entry fee is refunded to your available balance.
LINEUP RATINGS & PRIZES
Every lineup is rated based on the strength of the athletes selected into the lineup. The lineup strength rating is primarily determined based on the projected fantasy sports scoring totals of the athletes selected. A contest may have between 5 and 10 possible lineup ratings with 5 stars being assigned to the strongest lineups and 0.5 stars to the weakest lineups.
Potential prizes vary based on lineup strength rating. Prior to entering a contest, you will be able to view the potential prize associated with each lineup strength rating level. Potential prizes do not change after a contest is posted. You will be able to view your lineup’s rating and potential prize before submitting your lineup.
Free contests do not offer cash prizes. For paid contests, the prize values displayed represent the total prize available for a winning lineup. For example, consider a contest with a $10 entry fee and a $20 prize. When you enter the contest, $10 is deducted from your available balance. When the contest is over, if your lineup has won, $20 will be added to your available balance.
