Escot4 turned $2 into $2,000,000 to become the 2014 WFFC Champion
29 December 2014
(PRESS RELEASE) -- That's no typo - in Week 15, Scott Hanson, a FanDuel
rookie who played his first game in September, took down $2 million! That prize is the largest single payout in the history of fantasy sports - and it happened to a guy with $35 in TOTAL entry fees prior to the finals. A 1,000,000x ROI on his first game!
This is the greatest story daily fantasy sports has ever produced - and what better way could there be to get new users in the door? Once they see the champ in front of the private jet hired by FanDuel
to take him home, holding his $2 million check, who WOULDN'T want to be him??
Even second place took home $1 million - the same prize as last year's champion! Second-place finisher Vahomeboy also made it to Las Vegas from the $2 qualifier - proof that there's a real chance for every bankroll to reach the finals!
