Default Does anyone do fanduel.com?

I hear these commercials on the radio all the time for fanduel where people are supposedly making all this money playing daily fantasy football. Sounds like a scam to me. Anyone ever try it?

Not a scam, it's pretty fun actually. You basically put money in and create a team for the week, and you either win double or nothing...

It is the real deal. I enjoyed it everyday of the baseball season and am having fun with football. Your winnings can be transferred to Paypal usually the same day. If you join you'll notice quite a few screen names from here that are members there. PM me if you like for any other details - I've referred several people and both sides receive a bonus for doing so.

I've seen the tv commercial several times, seems interesting, but sketchy.

Yes - You pay using Paypal. You could use other forms of payment I suppose but I just use Paypal. If I ever suggest or refer somebody to something my reputation is on the line. I take that seriously and only have positive things to say about Fanduel. I don't work for them and don't want to come across as a solicitor. I know I've thanked the person who pointed me in their direction and would be happy to pay-it-forward to anyone who cares to check it out. I've already received a couple PM's from this thread - keep them coming - there is no sign up fee and we both receive a bonus for the referral.

I play also its fun. It is also tough to win in the multiplayer tournanments. Don't expect to get rich by playing unless you are willing to wager a lot of money, on lots of bets. Good luck and welcome aboard.

the radio commercials are some of the most annoying I have heard. The guys sounds like tools. Cool to hear it isn't a scam. I might have to check it out.

It's really fun. It can get you really pumped up about winning $4.

If anyone is thinking about joining, pm me and we can split the referral bonuses.

Be warned: It's addicting.

Ill be playing around.

Soooo remember that one time I mentioned a referral program I immediately had people ready to lynch me (no offense to op) but what exactly is the difference between my apptrailers and this referral program? Just a question.

FanDuel is a GREAT site! Highly recommend it. If/when you win a contest, you get paid within 24 hours! Here's a pretty remarkable success story that I experienced haha:

Last year, I had never tried FanDuel. They were offering a $5 free sign-up bonus, so I figured "why not!" and signed up. Of course, the $5 is a bait in hopes that you lose and say, "AHHH! So close! I'll go deposit more money since I'll win next time!"

Well, I entered and won my first 5-person fantasy league and took home $22.50 in winnings. At the end of the year, I ended up winning a total of $300 without spending a penny of my own money! Really cool website and very legit!

To me, I got pretty lucky, and I'd never go all in (I typically deposited 75% of my winnings into my PP account, and reinvested 25% back.)

I'd definitely give it a try!

Well one, the OP was asking about it not telling people to try it.

And two the fact that you spammed all the forums with very low posts and no feedback, which makes it look like your a spam bot or a scammer.

Really pretty simple.

I just joined after this thread was made, just threw $1 down in one of those HUGE tournaments, hoping to get at least 250th place and triple my investment
