Setting Up Your PrizePicks Account

Register for an Account

During registration, you’ll be asked to provide your name, email address, date of birth, address, and a password. We require personal identifying information such as your address and date of birth to ensure that you meet state mandated age and location requirements governing daily fantasy sports. 

After that, you’ll be asked to provide a PrizePicks promo code. Many of our partners have their own unique promo codes. If you were referred by a friend, you can use their referral code to ensure they get a $25 bonus. However, if you don’t have a code yet, you can use “Playbook” for an instant 100% deposit match up to $100.

Verify Your Identity 

Privacy and member data protection are paramount to PrizePicks. One way we ensure that protection is with identity verification.

Our verification tools allow us to confirm and authenticate your identity, comply with applicable laws, and safeguard PrizePicks and its players from fraud and bad actors so that we can continuously offer our world-class real money DFS game in the safest environment possible.  

Once you correctly enter the requested information and have submitted valid legal identification you will be ready to fund your account and start playing PrizePicks! If you have any issues verifying your identity or come across PrizePicks second-level identity verification please do not hesitate to reach out to our 24/7 customer support HERE to help finish getting your account set up.

Complete Your Deposit

Once you pass through the verification process, you’ll be able to claim your welcome offer by completing your first deposit. 

Many new users will deposit at least $100 in order to get the maximum value out of their welcome offer, but you can deposit as little as $10 if you just want to give the game a quick test drive. In most states, PrizePicks accepts the major credit and debit cards, as well as PayPal.

  3. Choose more or less on each projection
  4. Select your lineup fee

Once your lineup is locked in, you'll be automatically placed into a group of other contestants who:

  • Have the same number of projections in their lineup

These groups are created on a first come, first served basis so the faster you lock in your lineup, the faster you can get paid!

How to Win PrizePicks Pick ‘Em Arena

One of the best parts of this real money fantasy sports game is that there are 2 ways to win! Either get 1st place in your group OR pick a perfect lineup to win up to 10x your lineup fee.

Get 1st place in your group:

By selecting the best lineup in your group and collecting the most points, you’ll win payouts up to 10x your lineup fee! 

The points system is scored as follows:

  • Correct pick - 1 point. 
  • DNP (Did Not Play) - 0.5 points
  • Tied Projection - 0.5 points
  • Reboot - 0 points
  • Incorrect pick - 0 points

Whoever has the most points within your group can win up to 10x their lineup fee. If there are ties for 1st place, all 1st place winners share the payout unless there are perfect lineups in your group (see below for details) 

Pick a perfect lineup:

If you pick a perfect lineup, you’ll get paid, no questions asked! 

4 correct picks = 10x your lineup fee
3 correct picks = 5x your lineup fee
2 correct picks = 3x your lineup fee

There can be multiple perfect lineups in a given group. In that case, all perfect lineups will receive the full cash prize. No sharing!

If your lineup qualifies for both payouts described above, you will receive whichever amount is HIGHER between the two. Payouts do not stack.

*DISCLAIMER: Some payouts may earn a different payout than the standard rates listed above. This usually happens when multiple projections in a lineupfeature players from the same team or the same game. You can double check your payout rate by visiting the “My Lineups” tab in the app.

Remember: Always confirm your lineup fee and potential payout before submitting your lineup to avoid any doubts about payouts.
