    Did anyone else see that FanDuel is going to be having a promotion where they put money in random accounts and you have to use it by the end of the day? It popped up and I read it, but now I cannot find any more info on it. I believe it is from June 25-July 1. Thanks in advance

    Well………..

    Just wondering b4 I look at the MLB slate for TUESDAY?

    How many RG peeps got $$$$ put into their accounts from FANDUEL today? — MONDAY — not quite TUESDAY on the west coast, yet.

    I guess FD users (a majority of them) — were given-sent (EMAILS….i still wonder, truly, if it’s actually FD “SPAM b/c Y would a company send emails to a ‘banned’ player?) stating to check ur account each day this week for POTENTIAL $$$$$$$$$$$$ they will “DEPOSIT” into your (read: 1s, ones) account….

    My good buddy in NY — well — he was stoked as all get out — FD gave him $0.01 — he’s a poor grinder, like me, so please don’t be a H8R……….

    Anyhoots — I know RG here promotes — or notes — a lot of times how much RG members “WON/CASHED” on any particular DFS DAY — how did the RG COMMUNITY? or even if someone (YOU) is new here? DID U GET SOME CASH?

    DID U RISK IT?

    or DID U NOT RISK $$$ u had no clue about and LOST IT (FD stated if u don’t play it’s gone)…

    This promo run by FD is similiar the same promotion that is run by TVG. Both are owned by Betfair/ Paddy Power so I am assuming this was a sucessful strategy with TVG…only difference is with TVG as long as you log in to see the bonus 1000 posted to your account its yours to do as you wish with it. I have a friend who actually won the 1000 on TVG.

    Very interesting, so I thought I’d put it out there. Maybe we have a better chance then we think because Fanduel said that not everyone is in the promotion.

    How did you find this out?

  • jckjck

    @cbalcom tweeted something to Fanduel support and they responded. I saw it by searching “finders keepers Fanduel” on Twitter.

  • MichaelHendricks16

    In their response they said only the players that received the email are eligible. this apparently is a pilot for future promos…

  • Taterchipdip

    I am checking my Fan Duel account now daily!

  • tmarohl

    So basically to our knowledge, no Rotogrinder FD user has reported getting any of these free funds, correct?

  • rush1228

    They gave away 10,800 yesterday and only 1,200 was used.

  • blackout8

    So they gave away $5,000 to one account, $1,000 to one account and $100 to 48 accounts

  • bucherpsu08

    The 5k account has probably been idle for an extended period of time. I highly doubt these are generated at random.

    I was hoping the $5000 would go to Ryazan and he would get back in the game. I miss him.

  • tmarohl

    Still no Rotogrinder winners?

  • blackout8

    My guess is they are targeting accounts that only play during NFL and/or NBA season as their “random” winners to try to get them into others sports (MLB, Soccer, PGA, Nascar, etc). So if you’re like me and play MLB on daily basis you are probably SOL haha

    How bad would that suck when you log back in and see the missed notification that you missed out on wagering 1 or 5k.

    Today would be a nice day to “win” as it’d allow you to get in on the PGA contests.

    From what I read, the money must be used in contests that start on the same day the money was awarded. So using today’s money on tomorrow’s PGA would make it even worse!

    They updated the totals through Tuesday. Looks like they gave away another $6800.00 yesterday for $17,600 total. Only $2, 313.42 has been “found”.

    So that’s Monday: – 5k to 1 accounts – 1k to 2 accounts – 100 to 48 accounts

    Tuesday: – 5k to 0 accounts – 1k to 2 accounts – 100 to 48 accounts

    Dumb question: what if I am registered in $300 worth of contests by the time $100 enters my account? Do I have to register for $100 more after the money is applied to my account? Basically, doesn’t this encourage low stakes players to wait for 4pm to begin mass registering for cash games?

  • wolfjb1

    What a joke. They can say they GAVE AWAY A LOT OF MONEY!!!!! which is technically and legally true, but for practical purposes, they gave most of it away, knowing it almost certainly wouldn’t be used.

    Play like normal and don’t expect to get free money. If you check at 4:00 and have the free money diversify a few lineups and scoop up some higher dollar double ups and head to heads.

    It’s on the original e-mail they sent out

  • Supersharpie

    I received a free ticket to a $.25 contest which I turned into a $20 profit. Does that count?

  • jckjck

    No that does not count. Most people got that yesterday

  • thegeneral391
