    DK Cancelled the 7 PM NBA and NHL contests but NOT the 7 PM MMA (and why that’s ironic)

    Do you guys see the irony in this?

    All players could not edit any lineups for any sports from like 615-7. That even applied to NFL even though NFL is for Sunday and not 7 PM.

    However there was a 7 PM MMA slate. DK didn’t cancel those and let them run as usual even though you couldn’t edit those either. They cancelled and refunded 7 PM NBA and NHL.

    Hope you guys can see the reason why. It was never about the small time customers. It’s all about their bottom line. There is no way they cancel and refund the NBA slate if some high dollar max entry pros didn’t complain. If we complained about it they would have done nothing.

    Since no or very little high dollar max entry pro plays MMA really, they were ok with that slate running. But if they let NBA run the max entry pros might get mad and quit since they weren’t allowed to edit their lineup.

    I bet they weren’t even going to cancel NBA or NHL until some high level pro like Awesomeo or youdacao or ChipotleAddict or likewise emailed them. Once one or a few of them emailed them DK was probably like crap we don’t want to lose him so let’s cancel, but only in the sports he complained about in since he doesn’t play MMA anyways. After all one of these pros contributes more to the rake than like 100 of us combined so our 100 emails don’t mean anything compared to his 1. Just think about it and see they didn’t cancel MMA and the evidence is quite obvious.

    Hope you guys see how much DK cares about small customers. Do you wonder why their new promotion to make up for this involves a “deposit”. It’s all about the bottom line for them.

    DK probably saved one of those colluding brothers or those two colluding players youdacao and his buddy tons of money today. Given they never have been banned, DK clearly has catered to them in the past and I’m sure they’ll continue to cater to them. One email from them saying I have 150 lineups and I can’t edit them can you cancel everything please and there you go they get their wish.

    you guys should give your money to companies that want your business. They screw up and u guys are depositing more? lol I withdrew everything today from DK. They care about themselves not you…they saved millions by cancelling, anf they are giving back 5% in buy ins and deposit play thru bonus lol lol

    Yeah it’s gonna be kinda fun again to try out different sites and see what’s out there. I guess that’s the one positive to the “apology”.

    So where do I go to enter the free tourney tonight? I click on the ticket and it says it can’t find the tourney.

  • yisman

    pretty annoyed because I e-mailed on Saturday night due to the issues, was told I’d be entered into freerolls and they never credited me with the tickets

  • whitepuma

    To make things worse I know ZERO about NBA and only have one NHL ticket so yeah lol

    Disaster

  • w3stcoastoff3ns3

    DK will only change if we force them, with that said I’m off to work on my line ups. Lol

  • B_Edelman

    The one dollar I’m probably going to win tonight is probably more than I would have made if the slate had run. So I guess that’s a win. The sad thing is that it seems like DK’s biggest concern is that they lost revenue for one night, which they are trying to make up for with the rake-back scheme. And I’m sure the biggest players emailed them claiming that they missed out on a paycheck as well. On a separate note, why doesn’t DK do more rakebacks for existing players? It seems to be a good marketing system on gambling sites.

  • yisman

    for someone who actually got the tickets and wasn’t stiffed, which days/slates are the contests for?

    Yeah, but I think it has been proven to be successful otherwise why would they do that, unless they think it damages the game of skill argument.

  • yisman

    Up over 20 e-mails with DK now over this issue. They’re still refusing to enter me into the freerolls.

    For people who are always saying bigger players are treated more favorably (and that’s true in other cases), I play more than the vast majority of users. Over $20,000 a month on average on DK alone, which I’d guess places me in the top 1% of people as far as money put in play.

  • whitepuma

    Yisman that is ridiculous, have you tried forwarding the email to a team leader or anything ? What is the reason they wont enter you ?

    They claim I wasn’t on the list of users to be entered into the freerolls. I was entered into two contests for Saturday night and I was definitely impacted.

    I even made multiple posts on rotogrinders about my difficulties editing and entering contests.

    I’m curious to see how much money they’re costing me here.

    For anyone who got the tickets, please provide details on the contests.

  • whitepuma

    I guess they have been removed from your history on DK too ? How annoying, I would try and forward it to a team leader (there should be a option at the bottom of their reply to forward it but you probably already know this)

  • tristanwolf

    the tickets are 30k nba freeroll tonight, 15k nba (pickem tomorrow) 10k nhl wed, 20k nba thur, 25k nba friday.

    i ws emailed this at 3:56pm and just saw it 20 minutes ago, so obviously i missed the biggest one. 2 hours notice really? they couldn’t wait 24 hours so everyone could play the big freeroll? i realize they said information monday but i checked my email 3x at work, do we have to check it every hour?

  • Escotch

    @DK_Assist Still never had a response as to why you cancelled NBA and NHL but not MMA which started at the same exact time????????????💰💰💳⚖️

    they finally responded. thought i would share

    We apologize for the inconvenience, however, all users that participated in 7 pm EST MMA contests on Saturday have received entry fees minus any winnings for these contests.

  • yisman

    Can someone post a link to tonight’s freeroll?

    I want to see how much DK is costing me here.

    Capela, Gordon, Barnes, DSJ, Barea, LeVert,

  • internetfamous

    I have a weird question… Would I be able to deposit enough to clear the 1k max on the bonus, and instantly withdraw whatever I deposited and keep the bonus?

    No, you have to play through it. To earn that $1,000 bonus, you have to play in $25,000 worth of contests in a span of 90 days.

    Many didn’t enter a lineup (which affects your EV), but for those curious I’m going to try and get the links:

    https://www.draftkings.com/contest/gamecenter/48989574 EV of 66 cents
    https://www.draftkings.com/contest/gamecenter/48998056 EV of 17 cents

    note that yesterday’s contest had a lot less entrants because they didn’t give much notice before the contest actually began. Maybe 3 hours.

    The NHL one will I’m sure have a lot less than today’s.

    Actually, DK decided to auto-enter the qualified users for the rest of the free contests this week. Tonight as well as the remaining contests all have the same amount of entries which is around 85,000.

    I don’t mind the cancelling of contests, but I do highly mind the collusion between pros specifically in cash games.
