I want to talk about how horrible the payouts are for many big tournaments on DraftKings. Makes absolutely no sense to me and I want to see if anyone agrees…
In the poker world, a final table will normally secure a decent score even with a 9th or 8th place finish. So even if you make the top 9 you are reasonably happy.
The DK payouts are setup so that 4th-9th place should come with set aside counseling and suicide watch prevention consulting. Doesn’t make any sense at all…Its a total marketing ploy.
They pay out 25% of the field and then make it so 1st place is MASSIVE and then 6th-9th place is devastating.
Look at the big $600k NFL this week…ARE YOU JOKING ME with these payouts? The difference between 1st and 7th can often be one pass at the end of the game and yet they make it a 99k difference, its really stupid and I think a big issue they need to address:
7th – 10th $1,000.00
