    Who’s ready to play DFS 1 quarter at a time? Will be interesting to see how many players are losing early so they chase losses in an afternoon third quarter only slate. This is perfect for the degenerate gambler but I can’t see myself ever playing a 1 quarter slate.

    I would assume that the payout structure is fixed as a percentage of the total prize pool.

    You are right, my tone came across as too negative. I dislike the confusing way DK is marketing this as a pool of “bonus money” available to the players but the overall impact would be positive for both DK and the players. The UIGEA requirement of pre-determined prize pools is arbitrary and anachronistic. It deserves to go away. Providers should be free to experiment with other prize pool models and this is certainly one of them.

    DK is handcuffed by regs even if they are anachronistic. Calling it bonus money is a little bit of a misnomer, but another tool in the toolkit to adjust pool sizes could be beneficial to players. Particularly if it can be used, in part, to lower the rake to something more reasonable than 13%-15% (although, if we are being honest, some of the secondary contests are actually better tournaments even though they have smaller top prizes. Thinking of some of the golf millie makers in particular. So eliminating those secondary contests isnt that beneficial in and of itself)

    Hi Dan. The game format is not yet complete, additional tweeks are in progress thanks to user feedback. We will be sure to share the details with the RG community once they are finalized.

    Yeah I scooped some tickets I otherwise might not have since I build Wednesday night and there were some just opening as I got in. I’m not sure this would be applied to ticket contests though so we still should get those secondary ones. I try to avoid the MME ones but up to 5 entries is ok I suppose.
