    Can you do a daily pool on what time the President’s corona virus news conference starts each day? Everyone gets to pick one time, then that time is unavailable to others. I notice a lack some days of free prize pools. This is one that happens every day for at least the next 7 days.

    Wonder what my D K “mission” will be tonight.
    Need 3,000 more crowns for diamond.

    Is there any possibility the Mastercard Deposit play through requirement can be extended past the current deadline of 4/9/2020? Obviously with the suspension of every sport I am not going to be able to hit my max deposit bonus like I had planned.
    bq. I won’t be able to make my monthly goal of 25,000 crowns for Diamond level rewards. Only get about 19,000.

    We are in the process of evaluating where adjustments are in order across the board for all of our loyalty and promotional campaigns. Given the magnitude of the impact that sport/league delays have had across the board, we are taking a very holistic approach with the big picture in mind. Please keep an eye on the FAQs posted at https://www.draftkings.com/about/covid-19/, that is where all decisions will be compiled.

    We’re exhausting all available resources and leaving no stone unturned, but unfortunately, it’s too early for us to commit to anything because we cannot predict the future (yet).

    Creative idea, but it could be offensive to people who are affected.

    I just want to know how all the DK employees are doing, especially in the Boston area. Hoping you all and your families are healthy and safe in these crazy times.

    We shared this post with the rest of our colleagues at DraftKings and your sentiment is very much appreciated by everyone in Boston, New York, New Jersey, Ireland, San Francisco and Las Vegas. The pandemic has challenged us all. The small gestures of kindness, such as yours, that have kept us together.

    Everyone has a part to play, and through thorough social distancing, we can help limit the spread of COVID-19!

    P.S. If you haven’t heard already, we’ve partnered with United Way to raise money in support of COVID-19 relief efforts. Now, we’re challenging the RotoGrinders community to help! Post a selfie showing off your rally cap, use the hashtag #DKRally, and tag friends to do the same! DraftKings will donate $1 to United Way for every post with the hashtag #DKRally, with a goal of raising $1,000,000. Take it from our good friend Nate… https://twitter.com/nateburleson/status/1242531463679086600

    I never ever thought I’d play ESports, but here I am. Good luck to everyone.

    Also, although this is from that accursed place known as HAHVAHD, it’s worth reading.

    Just curious how Pat Mahomes can have 4 passing TD in tonight’s NFL sim and KC has 21 points?

    Edit I guess I’m an idiot because now KC has 35, maybe I saw them transposed? Oh well move along, nothing to see here. Stay safe out there

  • leib0039

    Can a DK rep explain if/why there are no paid contests for the NBA SIM yet? Is this a non legal thing money wise? The freerolls are a tiny lifeline but with like 50k people and like 4 good prizes its pretty blah. Even a small like $1 gpp or a big $5 DU something just to not have to be in the top .01% to make money would be great.

    If you enjoy DFS eSports, we have good news for you. More DFS eSports! Check out our first-ever FPS DFS offerings: https://www.draftkings.com/lobby#/CS:GO

    CS:Go Go Go!

    Keep your eye on the lobby, there’s more to come soon. What can we say? eSports is taking off like a Rocket!

    We do not offer paid DFS contests for NBA SIM because, at this time, simulated games have not been approved as a game of skill by industry regulators.

    Please get Fortnite in there also those 25$ milli make NBA tickets should probably be converted to cash right about now.

    All tickets should be converted to cash or they should put up contests for things like “Opening Day”, First Golf Major etc

    They also should extend the deadline for our deposit bonus play through

    If we were to offer Fortnight, how would you propose we build a DFS-friendly contest? Fortnight is different from other esports games such as CS:GO which has structured leagues that only paid teams participate in, and regularly scheduled contests. Additionally we must follow regulations when it comes to player age. Toss us your ideas – the team is listening!

    Its no secret that we always listen to all user suggestions, as a reminder we also track all product and feature requests emailed to support@draftkings.com.

    It seems like DraftKings could offer Nascar iRacing that the Cup drivers are doing, It is a contest of skill because the actual drivers are virtual racing, it’s not a sim and the scoring could be similar to a regular race?

  • panters

    Add me to the list of small stakes crown-chasing players. I’ve played every NBA and NHL slate pre-shutdown.

    We miss you DK and thanks for your ginding efforts. Be safe and stay safe!

    Draftkings are you going to extend our deposit bonus play through dates or not? Mine is April 9th and I’d really appreciate it

    I am in the same boat with April 9th. I had plans to clear everything out on The Masters but without the PGA I am going to come up way short :(

    As we stated a few days ago, our team members continue to evaluate how we adjust for all loyalty and promotional campaigns. It is too soon to make any long term decisions while the future is unpredictable. Please keep an eye on the FAQs posted at https://www.draftkings.com/about/covid-19/, that is where all decisions will be compiled.

    On a related note, we think everyone will be happy once they see how we are adjusting for next month’s daily rewards. Log into DraftKings tomorrow to see! https://www.draftkings.com/lp/daily-rewards

    I have been entering the free pools and I now get a message asking me to sign into my account. It wont allow me to because I’m Canadian. Are Canadians restricted from these?

  • bigez952

    I just saw the addition of April eSports achievements which I think is an awesome idea and gives a good incentive to play every $10+ every day.

    Thank you for grandfathering the March rewards tier into April, DraftKings! Very generous and a nice surprise

    So I wasted 10K crowns this month as I was Platinum in March and threw in saved crowns to be platinum again in April.

    Ouch, sorry to hear that. I figured there wouldn’t be any sports so there wasn’t any point in trying

    Canadians are not restricted from entering free-to-play pools. Please log out of your account, refresh the page, log back in, and try again. If the problem persists, please contact our support team at Sportsbook@draftkings.com and they will be happy to assist you.

    We’re happy you like it! Like we said, the demand for eSports DFS is booming. For anyone that hasn’t seen the eSports Achievements program, check it out: https://www.draftkings.com/lp/achievements#/esp/April

    Thank you for grandfathering the March rewards tier into April, DraftKings! Very generous and a nice surprise

    Due to the many sports schedule alterations made in March, we have decided to extend March status tiers through the end of April. If you achieved a higher tier in April than you did in March, the earned higher tier will be honored. This is our way of thanking our loyal customers who play daily on DraftKings, despite this past month’s unexpected changes resulting from the pandemic.

    Everyone at DraftKings is proud of the many new sports we have added during the past few weeks and we will not rest as we continue to add new sports. We hope that you enjoy these new games as you continue to play and earn crowns for status moving forward. To learn more, visit our COVID-19 FAQ page here: https://www.draftkings.com/about/covid-19/

    What are the chances you may offer in near future, for League of Legends DFS, some type of Online ‘Live Final’ style event for which we could play qualifiers for?
