    I’ve noticed both FanDuel and DraftKings bumping up their rake for certain leagues. It’s happening even in qualifiers where contestants would be double raked if they won their Q. Can one of the programming geniuses here at RG make a tool/browser extension that will easily clarify what rake equals for each specific game? It can be a color-coded system that breaks up rake into multiple categories (green-6-9%, yellow 10-12%, red 13=+%). This industry is going from bad to worse by the minute for the player. Only way to fight this is to be better consumers and to be more informed on where our $$ is going. It’s becoming ridiculous on how high some of these raked contests are getting. Only one winner in the long run if they keep squeezing us this badly….

    yes please, this would be a great way to make the rake transparent. Calling all the technically capable folks to help!

    dfskehd already built them. Read the thread and find the links. They work great.

    i think having rake in satellites and then again in the tournaments is double rake take. I see they add slam tix to happy hour then raise the entries to cover it.

    I bet total rake on the trip events is close to 68 percent. Well maybe that is a tad high

    thanks, just read the full thread and got the links. Appreciate all the work that dfskehd put into it!

    FYI on the satellite subject of this thread. We only charge 1% fee for our FAWBC satellites to the weekly Qualifier on Fantasy Aces. We realized the attractiveness of minimizing the fees on these contests for our members.

    Thanks FA. May be giving your site a deposit soon.

    dfskehd, you are da man! Appreciate it.

    Maybe the FD/DK reps will see that this is gaining steam.

    Thanks dan…

    I got a couple PMs about how it works / it not working. Copied from earlier in the thread:

    There are two extensions, two different links. Check Chrome Settings > More Tools > Extensions to see what you have installed.

    These extensions take cpu resources, so they don’t run unless you click the icon, which only appears while on FD or DK, in the Chrome omnibox (‘search bar’), on the right, near the ‘Bookmark Star’. If you are on the page with the respective extensions installed and still don’t see an ‘R’ icon in the omnibox, let me know.

    The DK rate colorator is broken now that DK changed its lobby. This is a plea to dfskehd to see if we can get an update (also send a PM). Thanks so much!

  • djjoeyg

    The only one in the NFL lobby that is green (under 10%) for GPP’s is a $5300 buy in on DK

  • dfskehd

    I don’t have the new lobby yet, but if I get it this weekend, I’ll fix it.

    Hard to know when to switch it if they are releasing so slowly. I don’t want to break it for people who don’t have it yet.

    Any RG guys know if they’ll announce when its live for all?

    Is this extension working for you guys? It does not work for me?

  • dwoods5

    No. No colors and I get “[NaN%]” where the rake % should be.

    Doesn’t work for me either.

  • topscout

    they will not make them show rake any longer i do not think

  • pmnsports

    Still getting the [NaN%] symbol on my end.

  • srolleDFS

    the problem for players is that only the decent players care about rake. the more i vote with my wallet, the higher rake you are willing to pay, and the more you vote with your wallet, the higher rake i am willing to pay to play in the tournament, because you are no longer playing. i like the vote with your wallet method (i pick which sites to play more at with every different slate), but i dont think it works very well for the player in this particular situation.

    the only solution, i think, is to educate all of the players, regardless of sophistication level. prolly the only way for that to happen is with a law/regulation, like how food has to list its ingredients.

    i just hope the equilibrium rake has already been achieved, because i dont think that regs or laws are coming any time soon.

    Rake is the sole reason why FD and DK have switched their main cash game format to double ups from 50/50s. With these double ups they are able to sneak in an extra 2% on rake.
