Re: DFS Industry Discussion Thread

I was at a party yesterday with someone that works at NV Gaming. I asked it any DFS operators are licensed in NV and she turned me on to these folks:

They are available at the Palms. http://www.usfantasy.com/locations/

I am close to some of the parties involved in the PaddyPower and PlayDraft deal, and frankly, I was shocked when I heard the news. Never expected a top EU sportsbook brand to pick up a turn-based, liquidity, DFS company that has low margins for $19m up front, and 20 more to follow (and not many customers as well!?) Maybe they have alot more traffic than anyone thought, I don't know.

Re: DFS Industry Discussion Thread

I don't think they do. Never heard anyone mention playing on them.

The owner of PlayDraft is the same guy that owned StarStreet before it went under/was bought by DraftKings. Seems like he cashed out.

Re: DFS Industry Discussion Thread

The GAME ACT repeals sports gambling prohibition. Will this pass? If it passes, do dfs sites become obsolete as legal bookmakers flood the market with full fledged operations?

Federal Sports betting is a while out yet. Even so, I think DFS is a different product and will survive in some formats.

Betfair just acquired Draft, so I'd say so.

Re: DFS Industry Discussion Thread

I've been giving DFS a rest for several weeks, but thought about making a deposit today, so I went to the deposit page and then decided not to. Not long after that, I get an email from DK saying that they saw I was on the deposit page, but didn't deposit. Creepy.

I'd also love to see some niche darts contests when the majors are televised.

Awesome concept and opportunity. Any chance it becomes available outside of NJ this season?

DK to launch pickems:

https://www.legalsportsreport.com/14...antasy-sports/


These should be juicy, at least at first. OTOH if they make sharp enough tiers and keep the 15% rake they may just get rid of those pesky winners once and for all with an unbeatable rake trap.

Re: DFS Industry Discussion Thread

I like the sounds of this pick'em.

I normally only play football, but with something like this, I could dabble in other sports too, since it gives me the feeling that I would be less of a dog given that format.

i.e. I'm not missing a very obvious lower priced guy that all the experts use for salary relief etc...
