With over 13 million followers, Dan Bilzerian is known as the King of Instagram. On his account, he regularly posts images of his high-octane lifestyle, including plenty of shots with scantily clad models, his extensive gun collection and his high-stakes poker exploits. Now, you too can live this lavish lifestyle, if only for a few days, through a DraftKings promotion which is awarding a VIP trip to Cabo, Mexico, to party with the social media star.
Top 10 players win
All you need to do is enter a DraftKings Cabo qualifier and score more points with your own line up than Dan does with his. Make it that far, and you’ll be entered into another contest in which the top 10 scorers will win the all-expenses-paid trip.
The package includes a flight to Cabo in a private jet, weekend stay in a beachside mansion, and a party which the winners will not likely soon forget.
Bilzerian has recently been promoting the once-in-a-lifetime trip on his Instagram account. “So I guess DraftKings figured they hadn’t spent enough money running commercials so they gave me $250K to spend on a 3 day Cabo trip hosted by a bunch of models,” he said.
Not one for modesty, Bilzerian goes on: “I usually spend $150K for 4-5 days, so it will be a bit of a challenge to spend it, but I’m sure I can find a way. They are gonna flight some of you guys out, click the link in my bio and beat my picks this week to qualify.”
Who is Dan Bilzerian?
Even as they live vicariously through Bilzerian’s Instagram account, many of his fans still don’t know who he is or how he has so much money. The social media star is the son of infamous investor Paul Bilzerian, who was convicted of securities violations during attempts to take over several companies in the 1980s.
Bilzerian is a veteran of the U.S. Navy, who went through training to become a Navy Seal, but failed to graduate. From there, he enrolled at the University of Florida and majored in business and criminology.
He later made a name for himself as a high-stakes poker player, who had a knack for getting invites into the most exclusive private home games in Los Angeles. It was not uncommon for Bilzerian to play Texas hold ‘em with A-list Hollywood Stars like Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Toby Maguire (whom he once called a “pussy” for playing too tightly).
Instagram was the perfect platform for Bilzerian, who exploded in popularity after various online media publications published stories about his popular account. Now, he spends his time as an investor, high-stakes poker player and jet setter while documenting it all for his millions of fans.
