    See on facebook Draftkings has a special announcement coming up on Feb. 26th. They have a teaser video. In it he says it will have your Cup running over. Could it be Nascar? Anyone have any idea?

    A super hyped announcement to let us know we can give them money to wear items to advertise for them. Awesome. A simple email would have been fine. Anything more is pretty embarrassing really.

    And I know this is the same as what DS had, pokerstars has, etc. I just don’t remember them blowing up my email and twitter feed with a world premier of a commercial to give the date of an amazing announcement that tells us we are now allowed to buy stuff from them.

  • huitcinq

    Yeah exactly. I’m sure everyone is happy about the swag store but the way they hyped the announcement was pretty ridiculous.

    Holy shit guys, I get that it was over-hyped but does everyone need to be so cynical all the time? Try to have a little fun .. I’m sure the DK team was enjoying themselves putting together the video and rolling out a new store.

    Things like turning FPP points into a Kentucky Derby trip is pretty awesome and with their other partnerships I could see some sports tickets etc down the road.

    I probably should have put my 48,000 FPP’s to better use…..he didn’t even give me his algorithm.

    Nice work DK. You continue to be a step ahead of the rest of the industry.

  • mgovas

    Love the store n i dont play on dk very often.

    Not gonna lie, some of this stuff is pretty cool. However, it is definitely geared toward people that are high volume players (and I’m fine with that), as evident by the fact that you have to play over $1,500 worth of games to have enough for a white t-shirt.

    What I am still waiting for is a site that offers games with the winner getting a shirt, hat, etc. on a regular basis (I know DK does some event tournaments). Most people are small time players. I think sites would be surprised to see how many people would love to play for something like a shirt instead of $1.80 in some small time $1 50/50 when they know how much work it is going to take to get them to a BR they like.

    I definitely will be buying the golf towel and possibly the ProV1’s at some point in time, but I was really hoping to see a NASCAR tab in the contest lists instead……

    I know it’s a poker style coaching session, but there’s 0 chance I am paying the equivalent of 400$ for a one hour session, where 5 mins is getting to know each other to talk DFS.

    Unless of course he is walking me step by step how to use his algorithm and spreadsheets. If not. LOL.
    But carry on

    Ahh ok, so your issue is with the pricing. That makes much more sense. I thought you were implying that learning from CSU (who I believe is one of the best in the industry, bar none) would be a losint propositon haha

    Here I am to toot my own horn. .

    Something you don’t know…little easter Egg I guess. The door he goes into at the end when it fades to white is the swag room where all the swag is kept. :)

    I’m from Quebec. DK only opened up for us after the NFL season was over, though I’m sure glad they did!

    they also corrected their pricing on the $5 ticket. used to be underpriced by 50fpps compared to every other ticket

    So for people that care about money and not hot sauce the rewards got a little worse today?

    to be honest they should have corrected it a while ago…every other ticket was 550fpps per $1 but for some reason the $5 one was discounted $5

    C’mon guys. this is definitely the very first time DraftKings has ever, in the history of their company, even remotely over-exaggerated anything.

    Cut the largest daily fantasy site some slack.

    it is good advertisement though having tons of people wearing a brand

    Yeah, they gave you a 100% dollar match on your initial deposit. Why stab them in the back?

  • Voltzwagon

    The draftkings apparel is a trap. Way overpriced for their production. The tickets are a must play for me until draftkings gets their salaries right.
