    I just wanted share about my experience with Fanpicks, over 2 weeks ago I requested a withdrawal and told I would receive my money within 3-5 business days. Well as those days past I began emailing support as to why I hadn’t received it, initially was told there was a delay I would receive it shortly. After a few days had past emailed again and was told there processor was down once again assured I would receive my money, that was approximately a week since then they have stopped responding to my email request. This is nothing but a scam. I was initially skeptical and should have known better but we live and learn.

    I haven’t used Fanpicks so I’m not sure of their integrity. I’ve only used FanDuel and DraftKings for DFS and haven’t encountered any payout issues. I know when I withdraw from my offshore books I often encounter processor issues.

    I would be shocked if it is a scam. Scot from fanpicks responds a lot, and I had no trouble withdrawing

  • madmanjayWV

    Not sure it’s a scam at all — I’ve got one good buddy who plays there for college football and he’s had no problems. Weird. I just wish they would get PAYPAL up and running.

    I’ve been playing there all year. The withdrawals do seem to take a bit longer than they state on the site. However, I will say I’ve gotten my $$ every time.

    Sirchad I assure you we are not a rip off job nor are we scam artists. If you were at all familiar with credit card processing you might have a better understanding of the issues companies like ours have securing solid processing solutions. When you add the fact we have yet to secure Paypal it just magnifies the issues and I do apologize. If you would like to discuss this in person I will be happy to give you my personal number so we can do so. I have worked with several guys here on the site personally and am positive they will vouch for me being the real deal and doing all I can to accommodate everyone. So you can either PM me or call our office and I will be happy to do all I can to rectify this situation as soon as possible.

  • Sirchad

    I don’t care about how credit card processing works. I was told I would receive my money in 3-5 days, that was over 2 weeks ago, that’s what I care about. If you would like to help resolve this it would be appreciated.

  • Sirchad

    Just wanted to pass along that Scott has resolved my issue and payout was received. thanks for the help Scott.

  • dtrain187

    I can vouch that I had multiple withdrawals successfully at Fanpicks. It was a little slow at first, but I always got my money.

    Scott I tried to enter some NFL games this AM and no luck on mobile on either my phone or wifes. Whenever it got to TE slot , it would only pull up defenses. It also happened for the utility slot so I couldn’t do anything. I made it back to my hotel room around 12:55 and managed to get into one contest on the laptop.

  • nickrock23

    update, my last withdrawal hit today so T+5. All good.

    Can you guys post some 50/50’s for CBB? I would prefer some 20-50 man fields. That will be key if I am going to deposit any $ on this site.

    Please, pay more than 10% of the field at least in the 1 dollar GPP

  • ScottatFanpicks

    Hey Joe we will have a full slat of games including lots of 50/50 that will spawn on the 9th. The games you see now are just appetizers till the system spawns all of our regular contests so check back then . If you still don’t see what your looking for give me a shout. Also all of the slates have lots of games but that is only because of the massive opening day schedule.

    Hey Scott. Why can’t we see user created games like we could last season? I don’t like that I have to check off “show user created games”. Do you guys know how much money you’re losing out on? Last season it was no problem to join a created league. Now they’re nowhere to be found. I created one a league and not one person entered because they can’t see it. No on is going to check off that option to see a user created game. Fix that if you guys want more revenue to be generated.

  • icebergslim

    That’s for any sport Scott. Especially nba and cfb.

  • icebergslim

    Also…why are we not rewarded for WRs and RBs that run a kick back for a TD? That’s pretty crazy. If an offensive position scores a TD it should be points on the board. What’s that about? I’m all ears…well eyes…so break it down for me please. I’m failing to see the logic in the issues I’ve brought up.

  • ScottatFanpicks

    We are currently working on resolving that issue and hope to have in addressed in the near future and I agree its crazy. Unfortunately we did not design the software and have had to deal with lots of bugs. Please stick with us and I assure you we will get it right.

    Can you tell me specifically what issue you’re talking about? I mentioned more than one. Vagueness doesn’t help much. Specifics do.

    The last response was about – Also…why are we not rewarded for WRs and RBs that run a kick back for a TD? That’s pretty crazy.

    We chose not to display user created games as it makes lobby entirely to cumbersome. All one needs to do is simply select show user created games and they will display. We have set show user created games as a default when selecting H2Hs as the majority of our user created games are H2H. Hope this is specific enough for you if not let me know.

  • icebergslim

    But your league selection is sparse in nba. There’s like no tourneys worth joining. People will play user created 20 person leagues. Way more than the 2 guaranteed leaugues that are $1. There’s no money in that. It wasn’t an issue last season. Every contest I created was filled. Not one failed to fill. This season…no one even knows it’s there. Why? Because no one is looking for “show user created games”. They should just be there. Y’all put up pointless non-guaranteed leagues that never fill. Those are what make the lobby cumbersome. The best payout but they never fill up because they’re 50 man leagues with no guarantee. Add to that, the fact that your money is locked in because you guys won’t allow any entry cancellation. It’s just a trap. A 20 man will always fill up with nba. It would be more logical to just show the user created games rather than show the useless ones that you guys put up with no guaranteed payout. $2 20 man will fill every time. $5 20 will fill every time. 50 man isn’t gonna fill. 40 man isn’t gonna fill. There’s no guarantee from you guys. There are a lot of players out there like me that would risk the $5 20 man winner take all. Know why? Because your limited leagues don’t pay well. Some of us wanna take a shot at a larger prize. Actually a lot of us do.

  • icebergslim

    Really, you should look into it. Wouldn’t you prefer more money being generated? Because this season is really weak for nba on fanpicks. Really weak. I’m trying to give good ideas that are proven to attract players…but it seems you guys want to cap the action. Why I do not know. Isn’t that less money?…for you guys?

  • ScottatFanpicks

    I have put up a $2.00 20 player top 3 Guaranteed up for NBA and will see how it goes. If they fill Ill do a $5.00 20 player top 3 moving forward. Ill disagree that if we build it they will come as we currently don’t always fill the very few G games we post. Ill also disagree with that fact the your contests are not filling due to not being in main lobby. But that being said I willing to do all I can to accommodate our players as long as it makes sound business sense for Fanpicks.com.

  • joe123

    I withdrew on Nov.14 and still have not received a payment. The same excuse was given a delay with the payment processor. Yea, I am not buying that excuse. Fool some other newb

  • ScottatFanpicks

    Joe assume you have been paid if not contact me directly and I will get it sorted out.
