    Just deposited 50 bucks. Is there a premium section for this site? Has anyone enjoyed using the site? It would be cool to see DFS players give their opinions on picks and such

    Hi, there aren’t any immediate plans for premium Monkey Knife Fight content but Grant has a free MKF video every Monday/Wednesday/Friday. Today’s video us up now: https://rotogrinders.com/videos/nba-player-props-picks-turd-ferguson-the-monkey-knife-fight-wednesday-january-16th-2876662.

    Thanks. Yea I tried tailing his picks but I didn’t have the same prop options as him. Do they change them?

  • d735123

    I’ve been looking at the numbers. They pay even money on events with roughly 35-40% chance of happening. No thanks.

  • d735123

    Actually, some are more like 25% chance to get even money payoff. Insane rake.

    The pros say that parlays are sucker bets. That’s pretty much what monkey knife fight is.

    just checked it out and wow, why on earth would anyone ever use this site? you should just withdraw that $50 OP, you’d get significantly better odds doing an actual sportsbet – which is still a suckers bet on it’s own – that’s how terrible this is

    I also just checked this out and I agree people would have to be insane to put money on a site like this. You can bet 2 over / unders to win 2.35X your buy in. So if they treat this like all other DFS sites you bet $10 and would cash out $23.50 since your buy in probably disappears. If you do the same $10 bet on two -115 player props at a sports book you would be paid out $34.95. Sports betting is hard enough the way it is so if you factor in the reduced payouts it would be hard living to be profitable on a site like that.

    Agree with the majority. These guys have worse odds then the sports lottery here in Ontario and that’s saying something. I signed up to receive the free $5.00 and turned it into $100, which I’ll continue to wager with until it’s gone or up to a decent amount to withdraw.

    same… i joined for the deposit bonus only to find out they dont take paypal so i wouldnt be able to get money on the site that evening… cruised around and looked at their odds and they were ludicrous

    Its literally a parlay where you don’t get your initial bet back if you win. Site is a scam.

    You should never lose your stake on a winning wager.

    I figured I’d give them a try with the 100% deposit bonus. I lost my first “wager,bet, contest” whatever they call it since this is technically a fantasy site. Was not impressed with their offerings and many of the lines they set are where you can only bet overs and the overs are easily 15-20% higher than a fair line should be set at. Then you don’t get the stake back on your wager which is ridiculous. This is highway robbery.

    Went to the site a while back, saw that I wasn’t allowed to play (live in VA) and was initially bummed, as I like to try new products/ways to play…now seeing this thread, it looks like I should be thankful for that.

    I’m guessing VA is excluded because they don’t want to pay the operating fees. While it sometimes seems annoying that I can’t play everywhere, I’ve noticed the last couple years, the majority of the site, any site that’s unwilling to pay the operating fee, has wound up being a site I’m glad I didn’t put any money on. So it’s actually worked great as a protection for consumers.

    Fear not, with WV already having legal sports betting, and DC and Maryland getting it soon (hopefully this year, maybe even by summer in DC), you should be in easy distance of a place that takes proper sports bets soon. Unless you’re on the southwest side of VA. I don’t know what the situation is there.

    Anyone else having issues with this site?
    they run match promos or promos to refund if you lose and never refund it unless you harass them
    They also ran a promo with RG for a tshirt if you signed up and never even received that…. anyone else having the same issue?
    im getting worried whether i will actually be able to get my money out when the time comes..

    The only positive I found from this site is that their 2nd half bets are usually easy to pick from, as most of the lines don’t really account for game script (example, Patriots up 31-3 at half, Tom Brady O/U like 210 yards passing.) Took advantage of this to break even and cashed out, really don’t like that you don’t get your initial bet back, really the only reason I won’t play on there anymore.

    The site isn’t a scam

    Buddy hit a 5 of 5 for 18-to-1 odds got $36 for $2…

    It might be a suckers’ bet — but to each their own
