    Almost 2 million entries? woooo
    Quite ridiculous sorry to say and it remains one million for 1st place and drops to 100 grand for 2nd.
    Why why why?
    3.00.entry fee so quite possible many will play the 150max entries

  • petesdynasty

    I’m fine with it. It’s the first week of the year, they want to start with a bang and make the top prize a milly.

    Milly makers are always severely top heavy. You play them to win or just flat out lose, not to min cash.

  • MRCOOKONUTS

    Yes its a nice lotto game for 3.00,but still prefer more balanced,higher amount prizes and elimination of the small prize winnings..I am fine with top 10/15% of pool winning all prize money on the million dollar games.

  • ActionJunkie

    HELLLLL YEAHSSS! Love it. Way better than a powerball ticket.

    And they said DFS was dead… go get em DK/FD!

  • baseballislife93

    That is the correct answer. Maybe one day DK or FD will realize that the low risk/high reward is what attracts new players.

    For cheap thrills? $3 is the only ‘odd’ that matters… Load ‘em Up!

    Are you shitting me? Look at that heaving cesspool!.. Finding weirdos to play is Not a problem on that slate. You people with your ‘Ownership” issues… Too Rich ;’].

    hard to believe they’d already have the salaries set. Lots can happen considering we haven’t had the first preseason game yet. Gonna be some unbelievable value plays!

  • TheRyanFlaherty

    I wonder how many of those entries they’ll end up comping?

    I prefer less top heavy GPP’s but I don’t think it’s an issue with something like this week 1. If you don’t want to play this one there are plenty of other options for opening week. As a lower stakes player I’m actually happy it’s only $3. How can you not take a shot?

    but are you planning to cash with that lineup?? For a million you’d think they’d include Monday, plus last season most Monday nights they’d have live video of 2 or 3 with the best shot at winning.

  • awilson45

    I like it. This tourney is obviously supposed to be top heavy in nature. This price point allows the customer to play 6-7 lineups compared to the cost of 1 entry from previous milly makers. Great move by DK IMO

  • cleanslate

    I love it as well, major props to DK. Your odds of winning are slim to none, but with a 150 entry max the whales lose a HUGE edge compared to the rest of the field, as quite a few people can afford $450 in total entries, and even if you max enter you still don’t have that high of a percentage of winning. In years past, the milly maker was at a higher buy in level with higher max entries, and all this did was massively tilt the odds in favor of the whales winning. Seeing this negated in and of itself makes this contest significantly better.

    Also, the top 27% cashes. While a min cash isn’t very good at only 67% ROI, if you build solid lineups you should be able to at least break even on max entries with the huge (albeit slim) upside of hitting that winning lineup.

    Is this really going to fill without a commercial blitz on television? Having said that there’s going to be people max entering and blowing $450 that have no business doing so.

    cute that you think this will actually fill. i doubt any rake will be paid but the possibility of getting 17% is more than reasonable considering the likely overlay

    Wow

    Isn’t it 15% rake?

    $5,882,100 in total entry fees- $5 mil paid out= $882,100 rake

    $882,100/$5,882,100=14.996%
