I don't see why they don't let people from Holland, the nordic countries etc play. They don't need another license and people from these countries know english so there is no need for a new website or new support staff.

I just read this article (http://www.legalsportsreport.com/134...antasy-sports/) where is says:-

DraftKings told LSR it will not be launching contests for Bundesliga, the top German soccer league, in the middle of the current fixture. Instead, DraftKings will hope to have contests go live in the fall, for the start of the next season.

Sounds good, Bundesliga could add to the Interleague slates as well. Hopefully add more fixtures to them so we are not looking at a 2 game slate every night with every Cash LU being the same and waiting to see who luckboxes the right GK to cash.

If you are playing betstars sports jackpot, make sure that your $ tournaments winning are credited to you in $. Mine were credited in £ automatically, so that every entry was subject to currency conversion fee both ways. Every team edit as well because you actually withdraw and resubmit!

I send a complaint email. I had stopped playing poker just before Amaya too over Stars, so I haven't been affected like most. How crap have they become, esp. considering how good Stars was before customer-wise.

Thanks for the heads up, I haven't had the problem yet. The withdraw and resubmit is just odd.

This is the only one (Zweeler) I know of and they been around for a while offering multi-sports with a variety of game play. Think you will see more DFS sites pop up in Europe, so far only established brands from Italy in the U.K.

Re: Soccer (EPL/CL/MLS etc) DFS Thread

BetStars deposit and withdrawal works a treat in few minutes, lesson for other sites who drag on with it especially when it comes to withdrawals. Interested to see how BetStars plan to add MLB, NFL, NHL to their sports jackpot format. Guessing a sports jackpot eventual winner will come from their NBA game, hence why it is capped at a lesser amount. For football (goalie scoring) and golf (missed cut) it is very difficult to nail the jackpot. Anyway guess we will see more platform offering fantasy, betting, poker, casino etc... all in one platform. I like their polished platform.

Anyone still playing on Fan Duel regularly ? They seem so scared of tiny overlay and offering only one sport is a strange business decision. They are not even running qualifiers and end of season championship. Struggled to work up much enthusiasm to play Fan Duel's games.

Multi-sports by Betstars, DK, Yahoo is much better. Yahoo should be commended for offering games in the local currency (£) saving us the hustle of conversion.

Also does anyone know one what happened to Bet4thebest ? The site is gone off-line and no email to explain why. Hope they have not done a runner and honor customer fund withdrawals if they have decided to close shop. My experience with them was positive but no surprise to see them struggling to fill their games.

Besides that few innovations, Premier Punt adding a sports book product. Play Dribble are now available on Android. Fantasfida are live too and impressive product. Draft Fantasy will have a DFS launch next season as well.

Hey Garrincha, nice post, I've missed your industry updates

I still play and don't mind the format, I just think since the merger talks they have lost some focus. The web site doesn't feel as though it has improved in months but it clearly needs it, some sort of checkmark to show if a player is actually playing and an easier way to manage multiple line ups would really help. Also why the pools aren't merged with the US is crazy. I also heard that that they haven't had late swap or 11 men size teams in the US which all seems pretty disjointed

So far I've really enjoyed Yahoo, like the game, like the site and really like how supportive they are, everything is very solid. I really enjoyed the free game they ran over the last two weeks as well. I expect big things from them next season.

Ive logged on today and made a withdrawal request, everything seems in order. They have always paid the withdrawals within a decent time frame and I've never really had a problem with them in that regard.

I think thats a great idea for them, I take my DFS really seriously and yet throw away money on sports betting so I can see people who have DFS money in their account will use it to take some betting action as well. Will be interested to see what happens.

Pretty solid launch by Fantasfida, I've been impressed with their site. However I hate with a passion when sites class contests as guaranteed but then in the small print say they need a minimum number of entries before they run. Nothing worse than spending your time building line ups to find out after the event that you have been refunded because not enough people entered, it really gives the industry a bad rep. Fantasfida have been really bad for it as well as Sportito but I've recently noticed FantasyBet doing it and PlayOn also do it on a smaller scale.

Re: Soccer (EPL/CL/MLS etc) DFS Thread

Nice to hear fro you Dan. Yes, this thread has gone a bit quiet. Bet4thebest have come back on-line yesterday and they are running games as usual, good to see. They just need to fix their interface a little bit, import/export tool and also being able to edit teams once entered into a contest is not much to ask from them.

On contests being classed as guaranteed, I am in full agreement. It is misleading and there is no need for it. They should just label it as progressive prize pool and we can decide whether it is worth the effort/homework to do line-up's to enter it. It is hard as it is playing across sites and they should be transparent.

For sure look forward to Yahoo's games next season, they said additional leagues will be added alongside their EPL/UCL contests.

Re: Soccer (EPL/CL/MLS etc) DFS Thread

I'm still owed money by mondogoal. It's been over 6 months now. I can't be the only one, see the email quoted below:


Please accept my apologies for the delay in getting back to you. This has been an on going issue. Unfortunately we have not resolved this matter yet, the player funds are in a separate bank account but we are still liaising with the bank to allow further player refunds.

We are hoping to know the outcome shortly, I will keep you updated.

This is truly ridiculous and hope they sort it out for you. I got all my funds credited back last February after a three month delay from the initial request. Have cut my play down from a lot of unreliable platforms and sticking to a few trustworthy ones. Best to make regular withdrawals still and not leave much laying around.

I actually got paid on 16/05. I hope everyone else got their money, badgering their ADR seems to do the trick otherwise.

They also owe me money and reject every time I try to withdraw the money.

They are obviously busto and this whole "players funds are in a separate bank account" excuse is a lie.

Its been announced that Mondogoal have been bought, I'm sure if you give the purchasers some grief they'll make sure it is sorted:-
