    It says for all contests going forward. Is the lobby going to be blasted with ads now?

    Run away. Run away fast.

    withdrawl and redeposit every night

    Unless you have to watch a 30 second video every click I cant see how this is sustainable. With rake going up everywhere there is no way this is going to work. Common sense rule here says run away screaming or at least play knowing you are playing with what could essentially be monopoly money.

    Beware—coming from personal experience.

    Who needs rake when you’ve got player deposits.

  • Messiah717

    It’s sad that FantasyAces and some other sites have pretty much painted everyone with the same brush. Unfortunately, that’s the way it is and just like the poker sites it’s now impossible to really know who and what to trust.

    There was an old SNL skit called the Change Bank.

    You bring in a dollar and we’ll give you back 4 quarters or 10 dimes or 20 nickels. People always ask, How do we make money? The answer….volume.

    You beat me to it.

    Joe123, you and anyone else, if you value your money get off of that site NOW. Don’t even listen to any advice about how to minimize your risk on it. Get off while you can or don’t be surprised when your money goes poof.

    Rake-free means your deposit is the only money they have coming in. Small time ads can’t pay for the site. Do the math.

    Looks like they operate in New York and do not have a temporary permit. Same with Indiana.

    Just a matter of time, run now while you still can.

    Same with VA.

    Guys, this is literally the exact same thing that happened with FantasyAces. If Draftworld files your bankruptcy I don’t want to see any complaints from you guys.

  • Jcb890

    Everyone should probably max deposit and get some of that rake-free action. What could go wrong?

    I would withdraw immediately while you still can

    Joe did you look at TOS? That site is a scam and you will be powerless (Terms 5, 6, 7) when they go down.

    How many red flags do you need – they offer College sports, rake-free, and have no state permits.

    Not only that they botted likes on their instagram page. 100 followers averaging 10-20 likes on each photo, and the very last one suddenly has 300 likes.

    Dude run.

  • wolfjb1

    If it weren’t for the terrible publicity this would cause, I wish someone would forward this thread to the New York AG. Those guys who cooked up the case against DK could probably set up a sting and arrest these thieves.

    Anyone who doesn’t think “rake free” is a red flag is an idiot. The term “rake” is roughly translated as “the way the sites make a profit.” A site is a for-profit business. So, yeah, a company has decided it no longer plans to make a profit? And the company wants you to send them money?

    Uh, ok…

    I was not looking for advice here for those directing it to me. I keep a 10 dollar max on all dfs sites even fanduel and draftkings. Imo the great danwahoo must have been hired here. I withdrew all my $ from fantasyup after a few months there. Draftworld seems to be headed that same direction. As i said before i have never had problems with my 5+ withdrawals at draftworld

    Well sorry Joe123 you’re getting advice because that site is a dumpster-fire waiting to happen and threading “Draftworld rake free” might attract innocent victims.

    No rake and a referral program. They are happy to give money away or rather take you money and disappear

    Lol topic is draftworld going rake free. Not head to draftworld and join a site like fantasyup. It was simply a statement. Please troll elsewhere

  • RotoHester

    Thanks for the warning, all. It’s information from you guys that keep some of us safe.

  • somethingfresh

    Your “topic” may as well literally be an advertisement. I motion for the mods to take it down.

  • ScottatFanpicks

    Hey boys we charge 15% rake for both NCAAB and NCAAF and are happy to do so and will continue charging rake on all sports as well it’s how we survive. This is very expensive business and rake is an absolute must to pay the bills. So come over to Fanpicks.com and lets us charge you some good old fashioned RAKE!!!!
