    editing lineups today and sometimes it will save my current lineup to the contest I enter in into, and sometimes it will randomly erase it and double up by entering my previous lineup a second time. NOT COOL!

    With changes to sports gambling laws, is there any plans to remove the entrant limit cap and fixed payout amounts?

    Same issue again today and has been recurring past few days. Definitely a problem, especially if editing a lot of line ups.

    Another recent problem, every few times I go to edit a line up it comes up blank. Have experienced the issue on multiple pc’s the last few days.

    Another recent Line Up page issue. The Filter resets after every edit so one needs to re-click ‘Apply’ after edits to just see Upcoming line ups. This becomes an issue when attempting to edit a group of night slate line ups while a day slate is ‘Live’.

    Would love to see some feedback from the DK team as to what, if anything, is going to be done to improve the function of the Line Ups page.

    Have you tried contacting DK support? I mean the community team is here for different reasons, not support issues. Just a thought.

    Yes Definitely. Hmm I must be coming across way more dumb than i thought if you felt the need to suggest that. Feedback taken.

    I will say that Line Up page’s issue’s definitely affects the volume I am willing to enter daily/weekly. I may be alone in this, but if not I would also like to try to get the message through this channel as well. I won’t play multi sports, and i want to, because not interested in hundreds of other line ups bogging down the page while trying to edit for MLB.

    Today for first time in years I feel like I need to have all my multi entries withdrawn because edits are randomly not taking and/or being applied to different events.

    These example’s led me to believe this post was ok here. My apologies.

    No reason to apologize. I meant to help you escalate the issue, that’s all.

    entering of duplicate lineups, my biggest win was only 250$ because the guy in front of me had 10 of the same lineup entered so he took 2nd through 12th place. should have been like 4-5000$ i cant remember but there should be something in place to where if you enter the duplicate lineup you only get the entry fee back, rather then taking a large chunk of the winnings because you got lucky.

    edit: this could be linked to collusion.

    Your website editing function is broken and support suggested it was my browser when its obviously a website issue as reported by multiple people. Pretty bad to have a website where editing lineups doesnt work. As you can see from this thread, going through support is getting nowhere.

    Its lol to think DK is going to be approved to allow sports betting with this issue, among others, lurking. Casino competitors should have no problem arguing that DK is not a suitable gambling provider. Hopefully that changes down the road.

    no i dont

    you shouldn’t be able to win over 50% of the prize pool with one lineup because you entered it multiple times, thats where it becomes luck and not skill based.

    Entering dupes in a typical gpp is lighting ev on fire.

  • gravitymaze

    I really like the 2 dollar Tablesetter DK keep it up. It’s great for us guys that don’t like to or can’t enter a lot of lineups yet still compete.

  • JH822547

    The multiple duplicate line ups argument is stupid.

    Imagine if you entered a single team in a 1000 team GPP and the other 999 line ups were identical, that would be an incredibly good situation yes?

    The same principle applies on a smaller scale if 10 of those 1000 teams are identical.

    I play a little on fanduel also mostly on Draftkings, I like there .25 cent everyone wins contests. For a smaller player, multi entering is fun and at least I’d win something, but won’t break the bank. Maybe I’ll hit on a day or break even. I’d like to see something like this on DK. Fun way to still keep engaged as a DFS player and a sports fan than taking a losing night and not playing each and every night.

    We appreciate your suggestion, it is a good idea but we feel our customers are better served by offering a $.25 contest like our MLB $5K QUARTER JUKEBOX [JUST $0.25!].

    A $.25 “everyone wins” contests is really a $.15 contest marketed as a $.25 contest where $.10 is returned to all players. While we agree that some players would love this option, we would also be concerned that marketing a contest this way might be viewed negatively by some users. That is why we don’t currently offer this format, but we can remain open minded to your suggestion.

    Why? We always reserve the right to change our opinion in the future if we see that this is what most players want, its our job to listen.

    Am I losing my mind or was there a big mini max for the US Open? Did that already fill and replaced by a much smaller one? It is 5 days before the event how is this possible, at least replace it with one or equal size.

    Just a friendly reminder. While there can and should be more changes, I’d like to say thanks DK for the honest answers, putting forth the effort and improving your process. I personally have played more recently because of it.

    Thanks! Feedback like this is so rewarding to everyone at DraftKings, it helps us to work extra hard to serve players who see the effort are putting in to make the ecosystem grow. Much love!

    DK, when’s the next $0.25 MINI-MAX?

    Golf: PGA $10K Mini-MAX [150 Entry Max, Just $0.25!]

    NASCAR: NAS $7.5K Mini-MAX [150 Entry Max, Just $0.25!]

    In MLB we are less likely to see $.25 mini-MAX contests again because we offer the “Scoring Position” Major League Achievements mission promotion that allows you to earn a signifigant amount of bonus FPPs when you enter 150 max lineups in a single contest, but we did offer a very affordibly priced $.50 mini-MAX on Thursday this past week: https://rotogrinders.com/threads/draftkings-community-what-would-you-like-to-know-2498166?page=19#reply-2555237

    Please email support@draftkings.com to explain your situation. We suggest that you include screen captures, explicit step by step of your experience, and a link to this post for reference so our great team will be empowered to research the issue and help to provide answers as quickly as possible when addressing your issue.

    Everyone at DraftKings is excited about the possibilities opened by the overturn of PASPA and will be exploring all opportunities to expand both DFS and SB to sports fans everywhere.

    I really like the 2 dollar Tablesetter DK keep it up. It’s great for us guys that don’t like to or can’t enter a lot of lineups yet still compete.

    I might be confusing it with a baseball slate but wasnt there a .50 cent like 25k ? I just thought I remembered seeing the PGA with a 4 figure 1st prize and it perking my interest.

  • beezchild

    Sorry if someone asked this already, but has Draftkings given any thought to bringing back College Fantasy Football/Basketball? Since I’m sure Draftkings will take bets on these sports in the future, does it stand to reason that the Fantasy aspect come back as well?

    @elementasrat said...

    Don’t you think that’s kinda problematic? Why should I have to email them to withdraw entries? What if the contest fills within that timespan as I’m emailing them?

    I’ve just contacted DK through Twitter and they’ve had no issue of cancelling my entries, even if it’s filled.. Only thing they can’t cancelled is h2h’s..

  • TheRealJosh5

    any idea why we can not get the 150 max in the .25.. I mean it only filled 3 times the first time you guys ran it.

  • mike291md

    @DraftKings_CM Thank you for bringing back the 10K MLB quarter buy-in!

  • kantiger77

    Please stop the obsession with single-game contests and get back to real slates. CFL ,for instance, doesn’t have a full weekend slate up yet but you have the one game up. There is nothing remotely interesting about single game contests.

  • kantiger77

    Also, please bring back dime games
