Over the last 6 months, we have been heads-down working to create a brand new game format for fantasy sports players across North America! We are excited to start welcoming users onto the platform and introduce the new product to the world.
What Is The Weekly Salary Cap Game?
OwnersBox tournament contests feature a unique lineup builder with larger prize pools. Similar to Daily Fantasy Sports offerings, our tournament offering supports single & multi-lineup contests. Prize pools range anywhere from $500 all the way up to $1,000,000. In order to enter, users must select 10 players within the salary cap limit. You can also manage your team based on positional game limits. Exceeding the game limits by position results in a best-ball scenario for that position.
The biggest differentiator of this product versus a typical DFS experience is that users compete over a 7 day period instead of just a single-day slate. Over the course of the 7-day contest, users are able to strategically manage their lineup to maximize the number of fantasy points their team accrues. The best way to maximize the output of your lineup is to make swaps as the contest progresses. One key thing to note is that each swap you make comes with a 20% swap fee based on that player’s remaining salary for the week.
At the end of the 7-day contest, the users in the payout zone receive payouts, and the users below the payout zone do not. Our tournament game provides payouts in guaranteed prize pools to roughly the top 25% of lineup submissions. Here at OwnersBox, we don’t want only the top 1% of users to win, we believe that the users who progress through contests and display their skills deserve to be rewarded too!
How To Play Our New Salary Cap Game:
The purpose of this article is to provide you a step-by-step walkthrough of how to sign-up, enter a contest, and WIN on our platform!
How to enter a contest & play:
- Sign-up for an OwnersBox Account
- Join a tournament salary cap contest from the lobby
- Pick your team: Each user must select 10 players within the salary cap limit. You can also manage your team based on positional game limits. Exceeding the game limits by position results in a best-ball scenario for that position.
- Manage your lineup over 7-days: Monitor the performance of your team over the course of the week and make strategic swaps to maximize your number of fantasy points
- Finish in the payout zone and Win!
While we know this game format is different than any fantasy sports product out there, it’s extremely engaging and really easy to master once you start to play! If you’re on the fence and want to try the game RISK-FREE, we are giving away $5 entries to all new users.
Head over to our lobby, pick your best 10 player lineup, and enter code “MLBBETA5” for a chance to win large prizes (It’s free, not sure why you wouldn’t want to give it a shot)!
Stay tuned for more articles and content around our new game over the coming months! In the meantime, make sure to follow OwnersBox on Twitter because we will be giving out tons of free entries for the rest of the baseball season.
