If you’re going to try your luck at NJ online casinos anyway, why not have that play go towards a chance to win part of millions of dollars in prizes? That’s exactly the opportunity that New Jerseyans have with the DraftKings Casino State Legend Series.

For about the next two weeks, NJ gamblers who opt-in will earn points toward the tops of NJ-specific leaderboards by playing DraftKings Casino games. The leaders at the conclusion of the series will earn some great prizes, in addition to whatever cash they’ve won along the way.

How the DraftKings Casino State Legend Series works

If you’ve already got a DraftKings account, you’re almost there. All you need to do is sign in on the app, opt-in to any of the leaderboards on DraftKings Casino, and then start playing. It doesn’t matter which leaderboard you opt into. Also irrelevant is which games you play.

From now through April 19, all your casino play will earn you points toward the top of the NJ leaderboards. Every dollar you play on the slots earns you five points. Live dealer and DraftKings games get you 1.5 points for every dollar wagered.

For every dollar you bet on table games and video poker, you’ll earn a point. Once the series ends, the leaderboard standings will determine what prize you earn. The top 10,000 players get paid in DK Dollars, which is site credit. The top prize is 100,000 DK Dollars, while the smallest prize is five DK Dollars.

In addition, there are Hot Seat prizes. This is a prize that will change daily during the series and winners will be chosen at random among those who qualify. Qualification parameters will change daily as well. For example, on April 13, all players who earn at least 250 points on slots qualify. Of those players, 1,000 will win 50 DK Dollars.

Sweetening the deal even further are non-cash prizes for leaderboard toppers. Those include boats, cars, sports equipment, and vacations. Altogether, the value of the prize haul up for grabs in NJ is $3.5 million.

Winning any of these prizes would be rad, but what would be even more tremendous would be winning some cash in the process, too. Here are a few recommendations for games to try as you attempt to scale the leaderboard.

A shortlist of popular games to earn points on

The best way to maximize your bankroll in this contest is hitting the slots, as you earn five points per dollar wagered that way. DraftKings has some of the most popular titles in online slot play available. Those include:

  • 88 Fortunes – This title has gained a strong reputation for frequent line hits and entertaining aesthetics
  • Starburst – Slots players all over have come to love the appearance and function of this game, along with the generous payouts
  • Wheel of Fortune Megaways – Themed after the classic TV game show, the jackpots in this title can be seriously huge

If you get more enjoyment out of other types of games, of course, play your own way. As always, play responsibly, but as long as you’re playing, you might as well try to earn some DK Dollars at the same time.
