Scam!! Contests disappear!!!

ZohTop

Pay attention to your contests; HOW MANY YOU'VE JOINED(it won’t always count you as joined, even after you’ve submitted a lineup)(the app stacks contests that are the same, so if you don’t pay attention to what you’ve joined, it’s easy for these scam artists to discount one or seven of your lineups.) and HOW MUCH MONEY YOU'VE INVESTED EACH WEEK(it’s easy to catch these dip sticks in their scam if you keep track of all your investments. It’s also easy to lose track of what you joined and spent. These evil people prey on that inattentiveness and relish the opportunity to simply delete what you’re not keeping track of.). I bought into this before I researched it. Don’t be ignorant like me. However, I have been able to make $20 last 5 weeks. But, I’d be sitting on thousands if what they are doing was actually legit. In other words, you have a better chance of actually winning in Vegas(not playing this kinda thing). Be mindful that Vegas loves these guys because this thing rakes in naive idiots and if allowed, will create an idiocracy that we supposedly fear.

That being said, if you can properly manage your entries and identify the games that drunk betters play so they can place bets on their favorite player, and/or driver, you can make a little money(if these cons don’t pick up on it first). The house doesn’t like not winning and they always win. Remember that.

DraftKings iPhone Review

Kolgrímr

I started playing DraftKings at the beginning of the 2015 NHL season with a $50 deposit. My first couple of matches were bad, though I believe it's due to how many people I was playing against. Most of the recommended/featured matches have many thousands of entries which makes it difficult to win. If even one of your players gets zero fantasy points it's almost guaranteed to result in no winnings. There is too much competition with far too many variables in those multi-entry matches, so I avoid them at all costs. I've been having much better success playing 50/50 Double Ups and betting small amounts each time ($3 or $5)

At the time I signed up DK said they will match any deposit up to $600. After reading the fine print you will see that each bonus dollar requires 100 Frequent Player Points to unlock, AND the bonus expires after a few months. I'm getting anywhere from 10 to 25 FPP per match. At this rate I will be lucky to get $10 of my bonus before it expires.

Despite the lame multi-entry contests with THOUSANDS of competitors, and DK's cheap bonus offer, I still give the app 5/5. I'm enjoying it because I love ice hockey and wanted to put my fantasy skills to the test.

No algorithms here.

*****************

2017 Update: I've taken a year-long break from DK and have returned to see it's still as great as it was in the past.

Lineup lock

murder_i_wrote

Lineup lock for NBA is absurd. It makes it a game of luck instead of a game of skill which seems like dangerous territory for DFS. You can do all the research you want but if you have a player that is ruled out after lineup lock it doesn’t matter how skilled you are or how much research you put in. All it becomes is a game of luck by picking players who won’t be “surprisingly” ruled out after lock. And whoever avoids the injury landmines are the ones who will benefit from it. It’s killing my enjoyment in playing nba anymore. I know the response will be that you do offer a late swap feature however it is obvious that it’s a lesser product only implemented to justify keeping it off the classic slate. I don’t play DFS on any other site but this issue has me contemplating of playing NBA elsewhere or just stopping NBA play all together. I hope that lineup lock on the classic slate gets resolved soon because i really enjoy the rest of your product and want to continue as a loyal customer.
