How To Monkey Knife Fight: MLB - HR Derby

The Home Run Derby is an annual event in the MLB, but on Monkey Knife Fight, we’re doing it every dang Friday for the 2021 season, where winners will be splitting a prize pool of $5,000!

Come Opening Day we’re kicking things off with a $20,000 jackpot that’ll be split amongst those can who guess three players to hit a dinger across the entire Opening Day slates, or any specific game(s) you choose to play on Monkey Knife Fight. 

If you haven’t played the HR Derby on MKF before, let’s go over the rules of how to to play and then to win. It's important to note that the bonus prize pool is separate from a regular HR Derby contest on Monkey Knife Fight.

  • Then, set your total HR goal + the buy-in you want. If you select 0.5 HR’s, you’ll need one combined dinger, two for 1.5 and three for 2.5.

If the sum of home runs from your trio of players exceeds your goal, you win your MKF contest! To win a share of the $10,000 bonus prize pool, all three of your selections must hit a home run!

*You must play a minimum of a $5 game to qualify for the bonus prize pool*

While it's certainly possible to pick three players to hit a home run in the same game, we recommended playing the slates, as you'll be able to pick from a bigger pool of home run hitters.

If nobody selects three players to homer for that specific day, the $5,000 prize pool will roll over into next week’s jackpot, meaning $10,000 will be up for grabs on the following Friday. Bookmark your calendars, because this will run every Friday of the MLB season!

Play a $5+ Home Run Derby contest to be eligible for the prize pool.

The prize pool will be split evenly between all entrants with winning contest entries. Entrants with multiple winning entries will receive a share for each winning entry. Prize will be awarded in MKF Dollars. MKF Dollars cannot be withdrawn and must be played through once in order to be eligible for withdrawal.
