Free rolls are fine, but I'm never wasting money on a sport I know next to nothing about. I can name maybe eight basketball players off the top of my head. Maybe.
I'm in for $1 on basketball tonight. I just find sites that have good info and try to use their lineups. Maybe i'll get lucky.
Fan Duel has a link up stating no new deposits from New York State residents..
Won the Quarter Arcade tonight... Turned 25 cents into $100 lol
Overall, turned $3.25 in buy-ins into $107.
How is it rigged?
Can we still bet? I withdrew money like last week
I believe we can until the hearing on the 25th, but I stopped playing until we get the final word.
DraftKings is letting you do it, but FanDuel is playing it safe and has stopped taking NY bets. I still have $8 worth of points that I didn't get to use. Oh well.
If you lived out of state but had a credit card with a NY billing address, will it allow you (or, well, me) to play?
Sorry NY bros. It's been a good run.
$hame the government feel$ the need to get involved in the$e affair$$$.
I fully expect dominos to fall, especially in states that already have "legalized" gambling.
idk, I figured that the big money influence that backs these sites, including the sports leagues themselves as well as many major networks, would have some pull in state capitals to keep this legal. oh well. thanks for ruining my fun government
I'm sure his friends at the NYGA gave him a call when this thing started going down reminding him of their
in reading some of the forums it sure looks like past posting is occurring in some instances and other instances of one player having way more entries in a particular game that what is allowed.
its para mutual wagering and neither company has come forth and told the public how the pools are being protected. When your'e dealing with money on this scale sharpies will always look to see how they can steal it, or rig it... human nature.
what's not illegal but should give the average player pause however is the percentage of ''dead money'' in these pools. it is somewhere close to 90% with the largest percentage of big winners coming in around 1.7%. Essentially you have the sharpies coming in with their algorithmic programs and wagering huge sums of money and looking to gain a rate of return, say 8%. to them that's all they are looking for and they are the same guys who came in and corrupted video online poker.
so the average player who comes in and wants to play a few bucks a week in reality has no chance to win a large pot. the odds would probably equal playing the lotto.
this is where the gov't should step in and force regulations on the games. Of course its self serving because they also all want their cuts but rightly so especially given the economic state of some of the local gov'ts these days when there having a rough time making pension payments and such.
No one is trying to kill this. They are trying to regulate it, tax it and in the end it will be a pre cursor to legalized on line betting in all sports.
Well, your first point has been dealt with. Employees have been banned from participating. Whether or not that person actually benefited from that information is still unclear, but it's a moot point because action was taken.
The rest of your rant seems focused on the lack of "fairness" in the games. However, that's not a rigging of the games. They're unfair because some people are better than others. A guy who is a full-time daily fantasy player, has algorithms and whatnot should not be vilified because he gets a much higher return than the guy who puts in a few bucks a day. That's the whole argument around the "game of skill" aspect that DFS is trying to align itself with. It's not just mindless gambling (slot machines, lottery, scratch-offs, etc. [all legal, by the way]). It's something you can get "good" at (in relative terms) if you spend enough time on it.
So what if the odds of hitting a jackpot are equal to playing the lottery (which is perfectly fine, legal gambling in the eyes of practically every state)? That's the gamble. That's the wager. You don't need to hit jackpots to have fun. You don't even need to hit jackpots to turn a profit.
You say that's where the government should step in and force regulations? What needs to be regulated in this regard?
so the injunction was temporarily lifted a few days ago. I didn't fully read the email and went straight into depositing money. Well that $10 is gone now, now big deal. But further down the email it apparently said they can't accept new deposits from NY. So for some reason they let me do it before. But now I can't.
put up 48 points last night, which typically would be enough to win some good money, but it was such a high-scoring night that it wound up not being much. I hit a triple up, and cashed in a $1 single entry tournament and a $2 tournament for $16 total. not bad, but considering how well my team actually did I was hoping it'd be more
My brother and 3 friends put a few entries into the $25 tournament, finished in 2nd out of 689 people and hit for $1000, if Filpulla doesn't score in the last 30 seconds of the Lightning game, he would have finished in first and took home $1500
you should tell us your brothers entries in exchange for half of the overall prizes. I'd be happy with that arrangement lol
