    FD Slam

    Slam already full when I went to join at 12:30 PM EST today. Any plans for FD to increase the number of entries into NBA GPPs?

    In general, we’ll keep bumping up the size of contests that keep filling way early. I think this may have been the best NBA Thursday schedule in a while, so we didn’t have anything to compare it directly to…and apparently underestimated demand.

    Good point, that makes sense. Most of the time you can’t run Thursdays because there are only 2 games.

    Yeah, I think they’ve been a mix of 2 game days (where we’re running Thu+Fri contests) and 3 game days (which just don’t get a lot of action).

    We did put up another $10K Slam just now…currently at 11 of 446.

    One complaint I would have with Fan Duel is not having enough contests or not expecting the demand. I think last Sunday they put up 5 different bombs and they all filled. No Thursday contests for NFL all that money from the Thursday games they usually get has to go somewhere. Same thing seems to happen for Tuesday’s NBA once people get paid for NFL they dump it into NBA that day and all the contests fill so quickly.

    Waiverwire, what was FanDuel’s reasoning behind not having a DFBBC this year? Basketball seems as popular as ever on FD.

    We’ve never said we won’t have a DFBBC this year.

    The slam is almost full today right now. The slam should be $100k every Friday.

    $100K would mean 4,460 entries. (2,230 now for $50K). I don’t think they would fill it unless they posted it on Tuesday. They posted this one sometime Wednesday I believe. Maybe Alex can clarify. But with NFL going away I assume all NBA contests will be filling much quicker, so maybe $100K is realistic.

    If you build it, they will come.

    Maybe $100k is high but 75k definitely isn’t.

    I agree, I think $75K is easily doable, especially once NFL is over with.

    Hey, at least FD listens. I see they pumped out a $2 Friday NBA Shot #3 already/just now. That’s how it needs to be every night. Once you crest 80% in a GPP, pump out another. Especially with several hours before tipoff. In the past, it would be #1 and #2 and that’s all. There’s really no excuse for how much manual effort it takes once the tournament is already created. At that point, you’re simply changing the name. The other values should be updated programatically.
