    Draftworld has a small site that I played some college football on earlier this year. You may have heard the news that they’re moving to a rake-free platform. In the process of making that transition they’ve failed to issue a withdrawal that I requested over a month ago. With the FantasyAces news I made sure to clear out some balances I had at smaller sites and I’m sick of waiting.

    I’ve made repeated requests for updates and for payment, but they keep stalling. It’s not a large amount of money I have held up but this experience has been enough for me to state publicly that this is no longer a business I trust, even if they get rake-free up and running.

    Hey Colonial, I remember going up against you from time to time – you are a great player.
    Myself and others have documented our experiences with withdrawals. I also talk to a lot of players on Twitter, and some had issues but eventually they did get resolved and they got their money.
    I did not know about FantasyAces, but can’t say I’m surprised.

    I didn’t know about them going “rake-free”. They did recently switch to a new site, but there are definitely issues with it. I have contacted them a few times about these issues and they were slower to get back to me than usual. And I would say these are major issues.

    So personally I have had mostly good experiences with FanPicks, but I think in general most of these sites will need massive capital infusions for them to survive long term. A lot of VC’s don’t wanna touch DFS. So it’s definitely disconcerting.

    Fortunately, I don’t have a great deal left in my acct in contrast to what I have withdrawn. I hope Fanpicks works out all these issues they seem to be having, cause I like the site. Good luck with everything. – Nick

    PS If Rosterdamus is reading this, do you know the issues I am talking about? – edit, I saw on the CBB forum, I guess everyone is aware of the problem. I saw you only did one LU tonight so if that’s why I don’t blame you. Maybe they should go back to the old site ?!

    The same thing is happening to me. I requested a payout over 30 days ago and still haven’t received anything. They shut down the gaming interface, and said payouts would be temporarily postponed. This is not happening.

  • dailydimes

    Is the withdrawal issue with Draftworld or FanPicks. Thought the post was for Draftworld but the first comment is about FanPicks.

  • nickrock23

    Oh shoot… my bad!! I assumed Colonial was talking about FP because I recognized him from the site. I only played Draftworld once, i think I still have a few bucks in that acct.

    But I just signed onto FanPicks to look at “My Account”, to check my balances and stuff, and it gives me an error page. So I don’t know what’s happening. Hopefully it’s just them fixing an issue they had. Like normally I get credited my affiliate $ on the 1st of the month, without fail. Well since they redid the site and it went live right before March 1, that part is nowhere on “My account” section so obviously I never got paid.

    I hope FP gets everything straightened out, like I said I really like the site and the people I’ve spoken to there.

    edit: Eileen, I just tried to enter an NBA contest and it let me pull up games… lmk if it works for you, I assume you’re doing CBB today?

  • ColonialRampage

    The big issue is Draftworld. I’d avoid it completely even if/when they get it running.

  • nickrock23

    That’s too bad. Sorry to hear about that.
    I heard yesterday that another company assumed Aces debt so I think the players will all get their $.
    Please keep us posted.

  • eileengalloway

    Just received my payout. Thank you Draftworld.

  • iwrestle

    They still have my money. Stay far far away, withdraw and pray you get it.

    They operate in states with out proper licensing. Just a matter of time before they go the way of fantasy aces.

  • kantiger77

    Is the Draft World site down? I was going to check their status and it’s dead.

  • kantiger77

    I also can’t get into my fanpicks account and can’t get it to send me a security key…?

  • ScottatFanpicks

    Hey kantiger77 has this been resolved if not please pm and I will address.

  • kantiger77

    Yes it was thank you.

  • ScottatFanpicks

    Ok great and please let us know what you think of the new product.

  • kantiger77

    It looks good; holding my money til college football, as that’s the reason I’m there. So keep that product going. Only suggestion is to do more variety of slates – and stay away from monster 20 game slates. Do a few 5-7 game ones.

  • kantiger77

    Update on DraftWorld – their site came back on and I made a $25.19 withdrawal request (which promptly brought my amount to $0) but I have no e-mail confirmation and no notice from PayPal that I’ve received it. I sent a request to their customer service…but thought I’d let everyone know.

  • BrownsfanNSB

    I recognize a lot of you guys from Draft World. I played as Buckeyes. I’ve been waiting on my money over 2 months and I’m sure I’ll never see it. Is Fan Picks legit? Is there anywhere else to play daily college football?

  • ScottatFanpicks

    We are legit and to my knowledge we are the only DFS site offering both college football and basketball.

  • kantiger77

    Draft World says they are mailing my check. Keeping my money on FanPicks, which always had a more legitimate vibe. Main suggestion I would have, Scott, is to have a variety of college slates and keep them modest in size. Like, 5-10 games versus, say, 25.

  • BrownsfanNSB

    Update. My draftworld check arrived this week. Maybe they aren’t as bad as I thought.
