    I’ve never heard of ‘Draft’ – are they legit? like “your money is 1000% safe”?

  • jockpostdt

    I’ve had no problems getting my money out of the site thus far, for what it’s worth @bluewurm.

  • jmm92

    bluewurm I’ve been playing on Draft for a few months now and its completely legit. You can deposit and withdraw through paypal just like on the major sites. Its definitely a fun way to play DFS since it combines the fun of drafting a team and DFS together.

    Just wanted to let this here for anyone that doesn’t read the fine print. This is copy and paste from their site:

    “If you registered with a promotional code and have received bonus cash, you will see it in your profile page. All bonus cash expires 90 days from 1st deposit. Bonus cash is released into your main money account at a rate of 4% of entry fees in paid out drafts. For Best Ball and Tournaments, bonus cash is released once the Draft or Tournament is filled.

    Bonus Cash Example: You enter a $100 NFL H2H draft. When all games have been played and the draft pays out, $4 will move from your bonus cash account to your main account where you can use it to enter drafts or withdraw.”

    So unless I’m misunderstanding, the deposit bonus is a bit of a joke unless you are an incredibly high volume player. It might as well read “get 4% of entry fees back over your first 90 days.” However, that doesn’t sound as enticing. If my math is correct, and it’s been known to fail me, you’d have to compete in $15,000 worth of tournaments to claim a $600 bonus. This really irritates me. To be clear, I like the concept of the site, and I am definitely going to try it out. I just want people to understand this deposit bonus. The rake per tournament as best as I see is 10%. So in a $100 per entry 12 person draft, that’s $1200 in entry fees, they pay out $1080. That’s $120 rake, of which $10 is your contribution. To cover $15,000 in entry fees you’d have to enter 150 of said tournaments. 150 x $10 = $1500. Pay them $1500 in rake, and they give you $600 of it back. From that perspective, the term “bonus” is a joke for I’m assuming a significant portion of us. However, RG writeups are entertaining regardless, so that’s where the real bonus lies.

    To be clear pretty much every site runs their bonuses this exact same way.
