What is Draftbug?

Draftbug offers daily fantasy sports contests, where you pick a roster of players for the current day's games, and win or lose based on their performance that day. Registration is free and only takes a minute. You can play for free, and win small cash prizes, in our daily baseball freeroll. Once you're ready to play for higher stakes, you can use your credit card to make an instant deposit. After you've made a fortune in Draftbug contests, you can receive your withdrawal via check.


How do you sign up for Draftbug?

Registration for Draftbug is free and easy. When you click on any of the Draftbug links or ads on this page, you'll be brought to a web page that looks like this:


To access the registration screen, click the 'Create Account' button circled in yellow in the picture above. The registration screen will look like the image on the right.

You'll need to fill out the requested information (please enter “dbi” as the promotion code), and then click the "Registration" link in the lower left corner of the screen. You now have a Draftbug account, and will find yourself logged into the site and viewing a list of currently available contests.


How do you play in Draftbug contests?

Playing in contests at Draftbug is easy, fun, and profitable (for the winners). When you first log in to the site, you'll be looking at a screen that looks like the one on the right:

The main, tabbed panel of the screen shows a list of the contests that are currently open for entry. From left to right, the columns show a unique id number, the sport, the entry fee, the total prize pool, a short description of the contest, the salary cap for the contest, the number players currently entered and allowed to enter, the deadline for entering the contest or making roster changes, and the type of contest (usually 'public').


To learn more about a specific contest or to enter a contest, you'll click on the hyperlinked "Description". Since this will be your first contest, we'll assume that you haven't deposited any money yet, and that you want to try out the daily freeroll contest. These contests are free to enter, and pay out a total of $5 to the top two finishers. Look for a contest (often the first one listed) with a description like "MLB Tuesday Freeroll", and click on it. You'll now be viewing a screen that looks something like this one:

The top left section shows roster requirements for the contest. By default, this will be a 1B, a 2B, a 3B, a SS, a SP, a RP, and 3 OF. The top middle section shows which games are included. Some contests will only use night games, while others will use all games. Typically only the second game of doubleheader will be used. The upper right section shows contest prizes. The lower left section shows scoring rules for the contest, while the lower right shows who has already entered the contest.


If you're ready to enter the contest, click the "I Agree" button to accept the terms of the contest. You will then be looking at a screen that looks like this one.

The upper section shows the positions available for the contest. The position highlighted in green is the one that you're currently selecting. If you want to skip to another position, simply click on it.

The middle, left section shows the players available at the current position, and their prices. If you have enough salary remaining to select a player, there will be a green checkmark to the left of the player's name. To select the player, click on the checkmark.

When you're done picking players, click the "Enter Team" button on the right side of the screen. You can come back to this screen at any time prior to the lineup deadline (which is usually a few minutes before the scheduled game time), by going to the "My Contests" tab on the main Draftbug screen, and clicking on the contest description.

Once the deadline has passed, you can view your opponents' picks and live scoring by going to the "My Contests" tab on the main Draftbug screen, and clicking on the "View Results" hyperlink.

If you're ready to try Draftbug now, all you need to do is click here to register and enter the daily freeroll to get started!
