    I see they are really digging deep with the 3% off 27 dollar entries. What a steal! In all seriousness they do not really owe us anything, but I think they could have done a lot better with this promotion.

    I think this is a great promo, anytime we can get some help with rake, I think it’s something to take advantage of. They didn’t have to do anything.

  • tysim19

    I concur. What I am saying is I think that if they expanded it even more, they would see entries skyrocket tomorrow and be in the same place if not better off

    The deals are lame.

    Buying 10 sharpshooter tickets and not even getting one for free is a pathetic promo.
    Can you please clarify how this is a great promo.

    You have to go upwards of 20 entries per contest to remotely get some for free and this is the lowest buy-in.

    Oh yeah did anybody else enjoy the great free rolls on thanksgiving? I didn’t b/c there weren’t any.

    Draftkings has gotten a ton of money from people that cannot play on fanduel in the last 7 days and this is what they give in return lol.

    I took it more as an intentional Black Friday” joke what they did..
    I think it was meant to be comedic but at the same time still offering a little savings..

  • JSteele

    I agree, I thought it was hilarious.

  • depalma13

    It would have been a much better promotion if they gave you a 50% off the price of one player.

    yeah i hate free money too

  • edro990

    Further proof that no matter what the sites do, someone will bitch about it. SMH………..

  • NGJSkillz

    only problem i have is it says “for all players”, but it doesn’t offer any NFL discounts.

  • tysim19

    This was not meant to turn into “bash DK” thread, and I thought I made that pretty clear from the OP. All I am am saying is I think if they made the promo bigger they could have actually made more money.

    My god, people are pathetic. In what universe are $250k GPPs with only 6.5% rake (Sharpshooter) and 7.5% rake (Crossover) lame?

    You’re literally getting 50% off rake in the Sharpshooter. Unbelievable that people complain about it.

    DraftKings wasn’t required to give anyone a darn thing here.

    If I got offered to enter a $3 contest for $3 or for $2.79, I think I would much rather enter for $2.79.

    You are missing the point. I am not complaining about a site giving me free stuff. I am arguing that from that site’s standpoint this seems like something they threw together in five minutes. What I’m saying is that they could have potentially done some really cool stuff with this promo but they did not.

    It wasn’t thrown together in five minutes; they did the same thing last year.

    What are some examples of really cool stuff they could have done?

    You do understand they cut your rake in half, right?
