Everyone familiar with Daily Fantasy Sports has heard of DraftKings and FanDuel. Combined they have raised over $1.2 BILLION. They are the unquestioned industry leaders offering some contests with prize pools in the millions. At first glance, it might seem like there is no reason to play daily fantasy sports anywhere else, and it is likely that almost every daily fantasy sports customer has an account with both of them. But many daily fantasy customers have voiced complaints and Fantasy Factor has an answer for those customers. Here are the top 3 reasons customers are displeased with the market leaders.
1) I NEVER win!!
Here is a dirty little secret (although not so secret anymore) about those huge million dollar contests: Only 5% of customers really had a chance at the big prize payouts. Until recently, the experienced players were able to enter the same contests THOUSANDS of times. For example, if a $1,000,000 grand prize contest had a maximum cap of 200,000 entries, one player was allowed to purchase 3% of the entries, or 6000 entries. Many experienced players did exactly that, giving them an exponentially better chance at a top finish than a customer who entered a single lineup. The industry has begun to catch on to this customer fatigue, and Draftkings and FanDuel appear to have lowered the maximum to 150 entries for most of the big contests. At Fantasy Factor, ONLY SINGLE-ENTRY contests are offered. This gives every player a fair shot at a payout. Fantasy Factor is the ONLY site that is exclusively single-entry. That’s right, every customer can only enter any given contest ONE TIME.
2) It’s too confusing.
When you first sign up with DraftKings and FanDuel, chances are you were overwhelmed. There are so many game types, buy-in levels, icons, tabs, graphics, and countless other bells and whistles. It’s sensory overload! At Fantasy Factor, simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. Fantasy Factor knows what you want to do, and we get you there quickly and simply. It shouldn’t take you weeks to learn how to use a site to play daily fantasy sports.
3) I’d like to try out the site before I deposit.
At DraftKings and FanDuel, you must deposit in order to play the contests, and even see the lobby. They expect customer to take a leap of faith in order to play. Daily fantasy sports are not for everyone, so at Fantasy Factor we are more than happy to let you play for FREE. Fantasy Factor has a FREEROLL going in every sport ALL the time. This allows players to give the site and platform a try to see if they like it.
The bottom line is Fantasy Factor is about fun. Watching sports is entertainment, so should playing daily fantasy sports. We keep the contests small, and the contest prize pools are flatter that other sites, which means more customers get paid out each contest, and we do our best to ensure the environment is fun and recreational by constantly offering fun and creative promotions.
