The first presidential debate between President Trump and former vice president Joe Biden is scheduled to take place Sept 29.
The pool is the latest in the US operators’ range of political free-to-play offerings. According to a company press release, DraftKings was encouraged by the success of its Democratic Debate Pool launched in March.
The operator is also currently running a Presidential Election Pool, which is the second largest of the operator’s pools behind the NFL FTP Survivor Pool. This is offering up to $100,000 in total prizes and has more than 210,000 entries.
In addition to political free-to-play products, DraftKings has also launched a number of sports betting free-to-play competitions.
Earlier this month, the operator announced it would be releasing a free-to-play Pick ‘Em game for New York Giants fans after signing a new partnership with the NFL team.
On September 5, DraftKings launched its Run for the Roses free-to-play pool for sportsbook patrons looking to win money on the 146th Kentucky Derby horse racing event. This offered up to $146,000 in prizes.
