Draftstars Announces $200,000 AFL Grand Final Contest

Sydney, Australia, Sep 23, 2021 - (ABN Newswire) - Draftstars, Australia's No.1 Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) platform owned by next generation and entertainment group PlayUp, are celebrating the highly anticipated 2021 AFL Grand Final between Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs by posting a $200,000 contest for the big game.

First prize will be $20,000 with payout all the way down for the top 2900 contestants, all for only a $20 entry fee. One contestant who may consider entering is Tom from WA, aka Tommysgunnns, who recently took home a record $100k from the $300k prize pool when he claimed victory at the live AFL Final event during the Round 23 Western Bulldogs v Port Adelaide game.

Having won his way into the Final after claiming a Golden Ticket throughout the season, Tom beat over 130 other contestants to take out the main prize with a winning score of 894.
