You can win $1,000,000 for FREE by predicting the stats of the featured athletes in our PlayLine Perfect Line Bonus contests!
What is the Perfect Line Bonus?
The Perfect Line Bonus Contest (“PLB Contest”) is a PlayLine exclusive feature that rewards users with up to one million dollars in prizing if they can predict, with perfect accuracy, the required stats for the featured athletes in that particular contest. For clarity, it is possible that no PlayLine user will set a PlayLine that matches the exact stats of the featured athletes, and thus, no PlayLine user will be eligible for the prize. For tiebreaker rules and other conditions, please see the Official Rules.
How do I enter?
Create or sign in to your PlayLine account. Once you’re in, set your PlayLine by predicting the required stats for the featured athletes for the specified real-world sporting games. Submit your lineup before the games kick off at the specified time . Users may enter the PLB Contest up to, but not exceeding, the specified maximum number of entries stipulated per contest. Please see the Official Rules for additional details.
How do I win?
The closer your PlayLine submission is to the featured athletes’ actual performances, the more fantasy points you get. The more fantasy points you get, the better your chances of winning a portion of our guaranteed prize pool. However, if at the end of the PLB Contest, all stats predicted in your PlayLine submission match the exact statistical totals of the contest’s featured athletes, in the specified statistical categories, then you’ve won the Perfect Line Bonus prize! PlayLine receives stats data information from SportsRadar, and the contest will be deemed officially closed at the time specified in the contest lobby or at the sole discretion of PlayLine. By entering the PLB Contest, you agree to make no legal claims against PlayLine, SportsRadar, or our partners for any discrepancy between stats data displayed and information found through other sources.

I thought playing Fantasy Sports was illegal in my jurisdiction. Why can I play in PlayLine’s Perfect Line Bonus contest?
In certain states (AL, AZ, HI, ID, IA, LA, MT, NV, TX & WA), PlayLine doesn’t offer paid entry fantasy sports contests. However, eligible residents in all 50 states and the District of Columbia are allowed to play free PlayLine contests. The PLB Contest is not a standalone contest but will run in connection with the free guaranteed prize pool contest.

Prizing for the free contests will be available on the PlayLine entry screen.
Can someone actually win this?
A: Absolutely. It won’t be easy, but the more research you put into the PlayLine you set, it is reasonable to assume that your chances of winning will increase. Study the past performance of your favorite players, and take every factor into account as you compete in his skill-based prediction game.
Does PlayLine have a $1,000,000? How about the One Billion Dollars I see you’re advertising?
As is common practice with these sort of promotions, PlayLine has insured our PLB Contest with top rated insurers that are capable of covering such enormous sums of money. For clarity, while PlayLine pledges to make available up to One Billion Dollars in prizing during its first year, this claim is predicated on no more than $2,000,000 in Perfect Line Bonus prizing being awarded to winning participants in the PLB Contest. Upon payment of this $2,000,000 PlayLine reserves the right to modify these claims. By signing up for a PlayLine account, you agree to hold PlayLine harmless should these marketing claims be modified or cancelled, at PlayLine’s sole discretion. PlayLine reserves the right to cancel contests at any time. Please see our general Terms & Conditions for more information.
