    they advertise you could win 50k…they do not say a share of 50k….no way anyone wins that much as the final amount split is 20k so unless everyone who entered on the first day loses but you it is impossible to win that amount…i just wish they would be more honest in their advertising. Basically you spend a fortune and try to win a very small share of the final amount. It seems like a gimmick to get as many fish as possible to enter multi entry contest to win little of nothing.

    Remember the first touchdown or longest touchdown etc etc where you won 1.80 LOL

    anyway obvious reply would be …well dont play….i get it but just think so much advertising is not clear…remember when they used to have commercials saying i won 100k and then got in trouble for not saying it was not the NET it could be the person actually lost money as they spend 200k to win 100k

    I think it’s an awesome promo, but I might be biased because I’m planning to win the 50k! Last week two of the streak contests were 5 max and single entry. If they continue having things like those the number of winners is going to drop quickly. I just noticed that the streak is top 50% of the contest, so I think it could have been slightly improved if it only counted cashes.

    I liked the longest TD, but that’s because I won a share of the jackpot. I think my prize was about $38.50

    I can not access Fan Duel. These gimmicks are laughable, what next ? Longest touchdown, first touchdown etc… is lotto/ bingo dressed up as daily fantasy.

    Wish the platforms focused more on efforts to reduce rake, have decent payout structures and be creative to make innovative game formats.

    Read a little closer, longest streak will split 50K. Currently there 118 users at 11 in a row, meaning if they all kept the streak up til the end, they would get $423 each. I got knocked out at 9, after just missing the single entry by 2.5 points…

    Someone, or some people, will split the 50K:

    Only lineups in featured contests marked “Streak Eligible” from Thursday, November 1st through Friday, November 30th will count towards the promotion.
    Not entering a featured contest will not count against your streak.
    In the event of a tie between two or more users for the longest streak of the month, all tied users will earn an equal share of the $50,000 prize.
    Max (1) milestone reward per user. Users will be rewarded on the highest milestone achieved, and will not earn milestone rewards lower tiers achieved.

    Plainly says “In the event of a tie between two or more users for the longest streak of the month, all tied users will earn an equal share of the $50,000 prize.”

    Hey all,

    To answer the question about the payouts (with some assistance from danliebl):

    The total sum of the money paid out is $100K. $50K will be won (or split) by the user(s) who have the longest streak at the end of the month. As of now, there are 118 users who have an 11 contest win streak. If this was the last day of the month, those users would split $50K. The other $50K comes from milestones along the way:

    5 streak – Split $5K with everyone else who achieved it
    10 streak – Split $10K with everyone else who achieved it
    15 streak – Split $15K with everyone else who achieved it
    20 streak – Split $20K with everyone else who achieved it

    Only your longest streak gets rewarded. So if you go on a 15 contest streak, you’d split $15K with the others who did and you wouldn’t be eligible for the 10 or 5 streak payout.

    As Awesomo mentioned, we’ve been offering a variety of contests that are streak eligible. Outside of our marquee NFL contests, these will get more difficult as the month goes on. Single entry and limited entry contests have seen a nice boost in demand from the promo, so expect to see more of those in NBA and NHL. Given that, the final count should be much less than 118. To the point about using cashes instead of the top 50%, it’s certainly something we discussed. For the first iteration of the streak we wanted to appeal to as many people as possible. Cashing is hard enough, at least you can extend your streak if you don’t cash. Having said that, the cash line or a slightly more difficult “streak extends” threshold is something that we’ll definitely consider in the future. Looking forward to seeing how this plays out!

    somehow it dropped from 120 to 118 and now 2 tiers of in the hunt have been added…i thought if you lost a night you were out but i guess you can start your streak anytime you want…i do not think its fair you can skip a single entry night and pick up your streak the next day…..seems like skipping at bats vs randy johnson to keep your batting avg alive…please give feedback on this as seems to defeat the purpose…

    i too am at 11 so hopefully a lot will miss soon..the single entry took its toll on a good chunk…

  • mogizzle

    Skipping the single entry is a strategic decision to possibly hit one of those 10,15,or 20 milestones. But you basically forfeit your ability to win the contest as I believe somebody or multiple people will end up with a 30 streak. I don’t have a problem with it. I do think they should have limited this contest to 5 entry max contests with several single entry contests thrown in. I think they’ve only had 1 single entry contest as a streak eligible contest in 12 days. By contrast, a lot of the streak eligible contests have been the sunday millions, tnf, mnf, etc which basically guarantees that this contest will be won by a mme shark.

    The streak eligible selections are pretty transparently a way for fanduel to bolster entries in their top-heavy lottery gpp’s…

  • mambaland

    if i reach 10 games in the first 10 days and someone else goes on a streak later and gets to 10 how do they split that or is it the first one to get to 10? the 5 streak was given out on day 5? they do a poor job if explaining who is eligible for the streaks since they can start at different times.

    it should just be a continuous contest for 20 days and you play them all

  • mambaland

    so its down to 74 people…when it gets down to 10 do we start talking about a split between those left? calling awesomeo

  • danliebl

    problem with that is you will have people right behind you, with a streak waiting to catch you guys if you all lose. Heck, if i was one of the 74, i would ask for a split right now and be happy!

  • mambaland

    those people almost can not catch us as there is not many of them and the month running out of days soon…i was thinking more about when it comes down to a few days left…i still say you should have started on day one and have to play daily…oh well rules are rules..i cant see how people lose on the nights when its multi entry single games

  • conndia

    Does anyone know whether or not the winner(s) of the 50k grand prize would also receive their share of the 20k milestone? Don’t want to get too far ahead of myself as there are still 27 others out there and ten days left, but I can’t find anywhere in the promo description that states whether or not the grand prize is treated as a “milestone”. Ultimately isn’t going to make a huge difference to whoever is lucky enough to win, but 4 or 500 bucks is still 4 or 500 bucks

  • Ccsammy21

    From FD website:

    Max (1) milestone reward per user. Users will be rewarded on the highest milestone achieved, and will not earn milestone rewards lower tiers achieved.

  • conndia

    Right.. but it does not list the 50k grand prize as one of the milestones.

  • mambaland

    funny i got email said hot streak at whatever the lead was…won that night and then got one saying i was at 1…whatever..split will be about a buck 20

  • conndia

    Ten people left makes the split a minimum of 5k

  • walleye734

    Anyone see the results of this posted anywhere besides the 3 scores showing on the app?

  • celtics2448

    Does anyone know when this pays out? O

    I was one of the 4 with the longest streak and I got paid out this morning.

  • celtics2448

    Congrats dude! Good to know, I only hit 10 but I have not received anything.

  • mogizzle

    Received $333.33 for hitting 20

  • Fantasyfun83

    I have not seen anything for the hot streak either…

  • Pbasniper

    0.33 for a 5 streak! I only play NFL, tried to sneak in a NHL contest to get to 10 because I suck at NBA and I failed. I hit the streak line for all 9 NFL contests I played.

  • FDRep

    Hey all,

    All streaks have been paid out. Here’s the breakdown:

    30 Streak – $12.5K (4 users)
    20+ Streak – $333.33 (60 users)
    15-19 Streak – $96.15 (156 users)
    10-14 Streak – $5.42 (1,845 users)
    5-9 Streak – $0.33 (15,103 users)

    Thanks for giving this a shot on our first run! Four extremely talented users were able to go the distance for a nice $12.5K payout. Be on the lookout for a new streak promotion with some different rules within the next month or so.
