    The contest is tomorrow and I’ve not received any email or notice. Nothing pops up in the lobby. Gold Status for April. How does this work?

  • lpdev

    You should get an email and the contest will appear undrafted in your contests list. It hasn’t happened yet for April, but should be soon.

    Thank you!

    These contests are getting more and more useless with the increasing amount of players in each one due to the ease of hitting levels with the promotions. Just another in a long list of DK promises under delivered. Meaning a couple years ago changing FFP value for our benefit.

    I agree with this. I miss the days where the Gold and Platinum freerolls used to pay out the top 15-25% so you had a decent shot to cash now and then. This month now the Gold pays out top 4% and Platinum top 8%. I am guessing the Diamond and Black are pretty decent still but not in reach for most players.

    Diamond is not very good anymore.

    I got over 111,000 FPPs and narrowly missed black.

    My reward for all that is this:

    Diamond EV: $37.10
    Platinum EV: $19.06

    Both diamond and platinum are worth half of what they were worth a mere two months ago, due to all the players making the tiers now with achievements.

    The “rewards” are almost not worth playing anymore.

    Yeah Gold is all the way down to an EV of $3.85 which is crazy since it actually used to be a decent free roll. They added more people so it really pays out less than 3% and not the 4% I originally posted. Of course with all the extra promos I hit 13,000 FPP’s vs. my normal 7500 so I get to play in the Platinum one as well.

    Am I the only one annoyed that Platinum is today and not 5/4 along with the black freeroll? For the ones that get to play in two it would be nice to have them on different days so it would work well to group Gold and Diamond on one day and Platinum and Black on another.

    First time in a while I didn’t make Gold this month. I’m in the silver freeroll. Ev is like 50 cents and the top .8% cash. Might as well just stack against aces haha.

  • yisman

    I had good lineups in platinum and diamond (did a different lineup for each, but they scored within a few points), but didn’t cash.

    Platinum paid out 8.6%.

    Diamond paid out 12.5%.

    A lot better than gold still, of course.

    I got 15th in the Diamond this time! I have been playing in these every month for a while and I’m not sure I have ever won anything prior to this one.

    Nice I have been really lucky with these free rolls. Never hit anything big like that but I did get another min cash for $50 in the Platinum contest last night. For the last 12 months I now have 4 – $50 cashes and 2 $100 ones which isn’t bad considering I usually only quality for Gold which is super top heavy.

    Damn nice! Congrats for that. That should churn you for a while I imagine.

    I picked 4 of the right guys (Strasburg, Paxton, Upton, Yelich) then the rest scored 0, 2, or 3. My final score was 123.1.

    Last year I had the nut NBA lineup picked for the platinum free roll (Day when draymond had triple double without points) on zero research bc I had a busy day but then had 10 min to look stuff up before lock and pivoted from 15k to $50….

  • Coheedrodeo

    i reached platinum for the month and just threw one of my lineups in that i had built for the $8.. it put up 180 which in the $8 netted $25… but in the platiumn freeroll that put me in 67th place for $200.. never cashed in a freeroll before i think cause its like 8% was a nice surprise
