DraftKings Reveals WWE SummerSlam Contest For U.S. Bettors
One of the biggest annual events in WWE starts this Sunday as SummerSlam is nearly here. European residents can bet on WWE events but there are no legal betting markets in the United States for WWE.
DraftKings, however, has introduced a contest for American residents interested in making money off of WWE's summer event. The SummerSlam Challenge allows players to answer a series of questions, with each set of questions worth a certain amount of points. Some questions are worth five points, whereas others are worth 10.

Users can select answers to all of the questions, then sit back and watch SummerSlam to see if their predictions come true. The questions are basically prop bets written in the form of a question, such as the amount of RKOs Randy Orton connects within his WWE Championship match against Kofi Kingston.
