    Yahoo is getting in the holiday spirit with a $1M prize pool contest for NFL Week 15, including $250K in GUARANTEED overlay. I suspect actual overlay will be much more, but hopefully not too much more so we can run this a few more times this season. We’re looking forward to a fun 2019 across Yahoo Fantasy, and wanted to end 2018 with a bang.

    Click here when making your first deposit and use promo code ‘grinders30’ to get $30 worth of free play, and as always feel free to reach out with any questions or feedback.

    P.S. Sorry, we still don’t operate in FL and Canada.

    yep, congrats to Yahoo on that. hopefully this will be an impetus for similar contests in the future. Yahoo is a superior platform to FD and DK. They just need the player base

    you have to be joking..that platform is 10 years behind even the sites that are now no longer around…

  • mogizzle

    not joking. I guess if you’re a MME pro then yeah the other sites are better but Yahoo’s rake and overlay is far superior to the other 2 sites.

  • ElSlappo

    Glad to see they are close to filling this, likely means more contests of this size in the future. I really like Yahoo, particularly the 10 max format and reasonable rake. I would say the interface could be updated a bit but it is functional and rarely crashes

  • mogizzle

    yeah, I should have worded it better. Yahoo’s UI could be better, sure, but it does the job. I will admit that FD and DK might have better UX teams but the main thing players should care about is rake, especially when the big 2 keep raising it to almost unsustainable levels for the casual player

  • ElSlappo

    Is Yahoo still tracked as part of the RG rating? I don’t see it on the ‘edit user name’ page any more

  • mogizzle

    I don’t think it is. you can put your username on your profile page but it doesn’t track stats

    That’s unfortunate because it’s the only site where I’m able to scrape out a win every now and again :)

    Thanks for running this contest, ended up 800-something and will definitely use the winnings for more tournaments!

  • Nosuckoutplz

    This was sick! So glad I saw the banner and got the kick in the ass I needed to finally join and play yahoo, something I’ve been meaning to do for years. I need some help now though, I used the grinders30 code…

    Bold to try and catch a RG rep’s attention:

    AM I GOOD TO GO ON RG PREIMIUM AND HOW DO I GET IT GOING? I’m short on time and zero yahoo experience, yet there’s more of these overlay games and I’m going head on into them again later today, so could use a little advice to spot the values, as this salary system is totally foreign to me. Thanks. Edit: Governmentflu is the name on yahoo

  • ElSlappo

    They’re doing it again next week wow

    Tonight’s NBA contest also along the same lines! Good time to be a DFS player :)

  • flip4flop

    Great promo and finally got me to sign up over at Yahoo. Ended up winning a bit and looking forward to next week.

  • bucherpsu08

    I would def join if there were other options to deposit aside from PayPal.

    I can’t get deposit to work. Are you allowed to play Yahoo DFS from NY?

  • Srmustangs

    Great that the contest is back this week as I will deposit again! Do the promo codes still work for new users? I have had issues though with people saying link doesnt work, or they cant see where to enter promo code if they are doing it on phone, and those that say that when they do enter code it says it is not able to be used . Wish it was a cleaner of a process for new users as Im sure others who get stopped at these points don’t continue the process. But keep up the good work and spend that marketing budget before the New Year!

    Yes—if you are having issues send me a DM and I can take a look.

    It’s easy on phone and I had no issues, I think some of the issue might be that they give their player points as the reward and maybe some people are confused when they don’t see it pop up saying it’s giving you $30. I didn’t even use the link just the code and it worked fine.

    Any Idea when FL will be available?

    Hey Daniel, what’s the usual turnaround on payouts?

    I’m not Daniel but I requested a w/d on Saturday and received the Paypal about 3 hours ago

    Instantaneous. You withdraw whatever you want, it instantly goes to PayPal. PayPal has it the next business day and can be withdrawn from there to your bank account. That takes another business day. It’s as easy as it can be (assuming you can wait the 2 business days for it to process in PayPay first and then your bank account second).

    Not sure about that, my account history still shows “Pending Approval” next to my request. Maybe has to do with the amount? I finished 4th in the big contest Sunday.

    Wow. Congrats on that 4th man. That’s very impressive. I have cashed out every month for the past six months or so. You pretty much just click on withdraw funds, type in the number you want to cash out, and then your account balance instantly updates with the amount removed and off you go. I believe it says “pending approval”, but there is indeed a wait time for it to be processed in by PayPal. I would guess since today is Monday….and one business day has not passed…that it will be in your PayPal account tomorrow. The key to remember is it takes one business day to go through (which would be today).

    Thanks, I don’t mean to sound impatient, more curious than anything about their turnaround and to make sure it wasn’t an issue with the amount for processing time.
