    So much for doing the TD Hunt this year as it appears that it is broken now

  • tippycat

    Am confused like many of us about the new system. However, the rewards system has been reduced for awhile. DK must serve two masters, players and investors. Disclaimer: I own DK stock. Does DK stay by the Players were they are #1 or look for other options? In my State there are at least 12 other casino options. Sportsbook everyone and their mother has open one.

    I will stay loyal the DK. Despite the current turmoil. For the Fantasy players the awards are still the best around. If someone knows better, then let me know.

    DK TD Hunt up for me.
    Got credit for Sun + Mon night TDs, only need a NYG now to complete.

    Every casino you walk into.

    I’ve never been to a brick-n-mortar casino in my entire life that didn’t offer substantially more perks and rewards than DK.

    It was laughable for a while. Now, I kind of feel like this is probably what the DFS community deserves. I mean, how often can you let someone run all over you before you become responsible for allowing that to happen?… Same with rewards. DK gets a pat on the back for, in the grand scope of things, a really awful rewards system that gives players micro-pennies on the dollar (and sometimes per $100)…

    Then they make that awful rewards system even worse and we wonder why they’re doing it.

    And they talk down to us, like the rep on this thread for instance, or their CEO. Unloaded my DK stock over a month ago. I would encourage everyone to do the same. The company’s about three years away from ending up on that tv show American Greed if you ask me. And once the state gaming commissions start tearing apart their Marketplace (likely the reason for their continued silence), it’s probably all going down in a blaze of glory.

    Damn Giants. I wanted all teams before Dec 1st to get the 5k before December (meaning i’d get the 5k + 1k 20% bonus). Thousand crowns a lot to leave on the table over the damn Giants.

    Also hopefully DK comes back and clarifies about the reward. If we’re all pushing for the higher tier since were close to next tier already, but there’s no Welcome reward on January 1st I’m going to be seriously pissed. More than I already am over this rollout

    The DK rep has already been here today. You can check their login via clicking on their screenname.

    Would’ve been nice to clear up the rewards questions before Dec 1st.

    Make it reign.

    Wished I sold. 52 week low today. I don’t deal with the Market Place, but have read the thread and it seems like mess. Reminds me of the days of the “beanie Babies” fad.

    I’m more worried that there’s no guarantee the Giants even score a TD this week.

  • pmg119

    Well two weeks ago the giants Offensive tackle scored and last week it was the practice squad tight end. I don’t think anyone started those two players for the TD hunt. There is a chance no one will finish the achievement if a real player doesn’t score this week.

    You couldn’t start the OT, they aren’t even listed in the slate. Won’t lie, I won’t even be mad if I miss out on this because the Giants don’t score a TD this week, ill be laughing too hard. (Though my gut tells me, DK will honor the 32 week deal if they don’t)

    Anyone want a gift of 3 months of Diamond status? I posted one $5 NFL H2H in the lobby for Sunday’s slate. If someone snaps it up and wins, I’ll gift the Diamond status. If I win, I’ll post again on another slate.

    Bummer, hope I catch this earlier next week and hope you win haha

    So I won 2 weeks ago and wasn’t able to do it last week. Just posted a $5 H2H if anyone is interested! Reply here or PM me so I know it wasn’t randomly scooped.

    Snagged it – fun idea!

    MLB has apparently entered work stoppage. I don’t think the entire season will be cancelled, but I’m wondering how DK will respond.

    Is this perhaps a good time to expand hockey contests? I’d love quarter games with top prize bring 20 dollars. Or something mid sized with a decent payout.

    @DraftKings_CM Where have all the casino promotions gone? Prior to the rollout of the new rewards program, there was at least one fun little casino promo every day (e.g. play $X on some game and receive $Y in free credits) and now they’re completely gone. These weren’t big money promos so they didn’t move the needle in terms of profitability, bit they game us a fun reason to log in every day and place some wagers. I honestly find myself getting bored with the DK casino product now… leaderboards simply aren’t enough to keep me playing. Please bring these promos back!

  • yisman

    Yes I emailed them about that last week. No casino promos in weeks.

    Used to be one every single day.

  • yisman

    My TD Hunter is still showing 0/32 so I have no idea what teams I need.

    I live in VA, where we don’t have Casino (which I’m thankful for), but I was in CT for Thanksgiving, and there were promos every night, as well as weekly promos.
    Stuff like play $10 at a specific blackjack table get $5 credits to play. Play $20 get $5 credit and a $5 free bet, etc etc

    They just launched in CT recently, so I’m not sure how much it has to do with the changes in rewards, as it is about flooding new markets with promotions in an attempt to get people hooked.

  • FuzzyOzzy

    yelp, unless DK wants to be nice, looks like hardly no one is completing the NFL TD hunter, unless they played a TE that had 1 target in 11 weeks on the Giants lol

    I really wonder how many of us missed the TD Hunt at 31/32. With no NYG of course.

    Bingo! I live in NJ, which has had the Casino product for awhile now and it appears that DK has lost interest in offering promos. And as a result I’m losing interest in playing their casino games 😉

    DK is serving 2 Masters. The players and Shareholders. You know the adage about serving two Masters. The golden days of DFS on all sites are fading.

    Yeh thats rough. The only people to complete it used every active player in showdowns. The NFL TD hunter is tough with bye weeks and shitty offenses and only having 3 weeks. Trick is to just time dime the full rosters on the crappy teams in showdowns. Lucked out with the chiefs and had mahomes on a team since that offense is just as bad as the giants these days.

  • Tapindouble

    I’m sure they’ll honor the giants
