    What on Earth are they doing with the “Twelve Days Of Giveaways” “promotion”? All but two of the days have been laughable that they are even trying to disguise this charade as marketing. I know they don’t have to do this, but next year they probably shouldn’t because this is a joke.

    Nah, we’re reading your posts accurately. You constantly stick up for the sites no matter the issue.

    I wish DK would give it a rest with the gimmicks, ploys and tricks and focus on simply making their product better. Their large field $3-$8 contests typically fill 1 hour early every day (basketball and baseball) for the past 2 years. How hard is it to look back at recent similar contests to know your sizing is not even in the ballpark? They’d get way more entries and could lower rake this way. Nobody wants to play in the weak secondary GPPs.

    I don’t even “unwrap” these so called gifts. A gift usually means receiving something at no personal cost. A gift where they make you spend to receive is just off putting for a billion dollar corporation. We can go on and on about the big FU that DK has layed on us the past couple years with rake increases, late swap takeaway, screwing over affiliates, ruining fpps, and creating a laughable refer a friend program claiming they would make it better. I bet they get barely any referrals as I’m sure many love getting 25% of a friends deposit of 10 . The contests keep filling and rake keeps getting paid. Only DK can spin things to make it seem we are receiving gifts when in actuality we are paying for our own gifts AND their gifts. Happy Festivus!

    No, you must be reading these posts wrong. The emphasis is on people constantly complaining. Complaining about late swap not being offered. Then when it is available, complaining about the size of the prize pools. I’ve even seen people complaining about the late swap bigger tourneys the other night “being buried”. People complained about DK’s billion dollar giveaway. Sure it was a marketing stunt and no one was going to win, but how about just have fun with it rather than complaning. And now complaining about a DK promotion that does give free stuff if you play certain contests. That’s my issue. DFS is fun, the sites try to make it fun and people just complain way too much in my opinion.

    I would add the perfunctory Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays here to lighten the mood, but some clownface would complain about that too.

    The sites try and make it fun? Lmao what a joke. The sites are in it to MAKE MONEY. they don’t care about you .

    Here’s my question: who was “flopper,” the reindeer from NY who lost his starting job to Rudolph? I figured out all 11 of the others, but not that one.

    So I guess I don’t understand your thought process on this part. Free stuff if you play certain contests.

    Soooo where was the free stuff? I see where you had to pay to play in a contest (and sometimes up to 3) to get $3 DK bucks.

    Not sure what your definition of free really is.

    I mean I could give you a free hat as long as you pay my contest entry tonight in the $20 NBA GPP. So is that hat free in the end?

    I got an $8 ticket for paying $11 in entry fees so it was nearly free.

    That was their 3 day “super giveaway” and the only one that was somewhat decent. Most of the other days were spend $5-$10 to get $0.25 or less in value which is what triggered this thread.

    these promotions are pretty much bullshit ..I have been a TVG account holder since the day it started for the most part..and I remember one day putting like 8-900 in wagers in one day via their website and I didnt even earn enough wagering rewards to get 5.00 LOL I am sure now I have a shit load of wagering rewards but I don’t need them so I barely ever look I am sure by now I have maybe 1000.00 I mean I sure as shit hope I would but who knows..now they do whats called a money back special but the max is 10.00 well I do not think I have made that low of a win bet on a horse in 20 years. I am not a high roller by any stretch, but when it comes to the horses I do my fair share of wagers but never once do I ever get a solid bonus or hey thanks for giving us your business for over a decade here is 100.00 voucher…everything is geared towards getting new players, they dont care about the old ones once they see your not going anywhere. Its the same with DK the giveaways are a waste…you have to spend 8.00 to get a 3.00 contest what is that 3/5 odds? Would you take 100.00 and bet a 3/5 shot? I wouldn’t. It just doesn’t make sense.

    But these giveaways really are not geared toward people like us..its just a lot of show boating to get new suckers….errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr…players into the DFS game.

    Is there any details on the “free ticket” for today’s promotion? I can’t find any.

  • pokerman64

    Then New Years hits and they roll out another shit promotion, although not as bad as Christmas, but pretty bad.

    it’s for a sunday nfl freeroll

    10k

    going to end up with quite a lot of entries

    they credit it the afternoon after you do the task (losing in a contest)

    The FPP ones are worthless (27 bonus FPPs or 63 bonus FPPs, depending on the day, for contests with 15% rake or more)

    the free ticket ones have an EV of about a dollar
