I know I’m a couple years late with this but recently been thinking about it as it still hasn’t set well with me.
Joined DK in 2013.. helped me out during some rough times keeping my mind off of things. Fast forward a year or two and I really started focusing on the RAF program (since its not always an option to deposit) as a way to earn some DK dollars to stay in the game. Worked extremely hard through mma/fantasy forums to get 18 people to sign up through my link.
After making 10-15 dollar a month off of their entry fees, it allowed me some entertainment in my low stakes games.
Fast forward again to 2016 and they change the program out of no where stating that if you don’t “ have 4 or more people sign up in a 6 month span we have the right to terminate your previously invited friend.” In one swoop all the work I had put in was out the window and was next to impossible to find new people through your link as every 2 seconds on Tv there was another draftkings commercial.
Now I will shout out that they did credit me $50.00 because of the inconvenience after I showed my displeasure but recently had me thinking again that $10-15 for 3+ years would have allowed me and would still allow me to be playing more often. It’s funny because In some of the contests I’m in I see some of the people I refereed so who knows how much it would be a month now.
Anyway I don’t expect much to come of this but it still kinda stinks that people who put in the work referring before DK was this massive company lost out on a lot of their hard work… would have been nice to see people grandfathered in who went out there and brought people to the company.
Hopefully this won’t get deleted because it’s still a great company and fun site to play when I do.
