    • 2019 FanDuel WFFC Finalist

    Have others noticed that the overlay that is the norm for FanDuel has disappeared in the last couple weeks? Can’t say if it’s in all sports, but specifically the NBA where I play it definitely is gone. Historically were dozens of contests every night (most satellites) that went off 50-75% full. But in the past weeks, hasn’t been even one. Clearly was a strategy change somewhere at FanDuel and just wondered if anyone had insight.

    The overlay always tempted me into contests that I otherwise wouldn’t have entered- so in some ways was probably good for FanDuel’s business. But obviously I understand they’re losing profits as well when there’s overlay. Either way, I wish it would come back!

    I would add that I noticed FD entices people to enter thinking there is overlay (1/5 entries with like 15 seconds left to lock) where after entering, it shows as a full lobby. You can also see before entering by going to game (where it shows 0/5 or 1/5 in lobby) and then seeing entries where there are registered players already.

    Before calling it coincedence that maybe 3 others thought same thing all at once, this literally happens every time…especially with the $25 5 man winner takes all.
