    DraftKings Admits They Want Only Losing Gamblers

    DraftKings does not want sports betting customers trying to turn a profit as it tries to build out a sustainable business model, according to its CEO.


    That was the message Tuesday from DraftKings CEO Jason Robins, who told a Canaccord investor summit that sports betting is entertainment first and foremost.


    “This is an entertainment activity,” Robins said. “People who are doing this for profit are not the players we want.”

    Hell, 5Dimes used to give me horrible lines because I won a few dollars over there. I'd literally be in the same room with a friend and my account was sometimes 1.5 points off.

    Of course not- but to come out and say it is pretty stupid.

    They aren't making money and who knows if/when they will. They have resorted to trying to scam their VIP players, too.

    Absolutely ridiculous book- not sure how anyone could prefer this USA book garbage to offshore. Draftkings has attempted to scam me more than all offshore books combined.

    Yeah apps started here in fall 2019. I got down like $2k on MGM and they would always send me $50 with little rollover, but I mainly bet at the casino or FD. Then I hit one of their $50 for like $1500 during baseball and now I get nothing since I'm up a little

    Yes, of course! That’s why they give all the bullshit away. Make them all feel warm and fuzzy in the short term and bury their asses long term.

    At some point in time, beyond my time on earth, but it will happen. There will be absolutely no gambling on any type of sporting events.. It's got to happen at some (who knows when the point is).
    I think of funds in my bank that I have saved and worked for plus inherited and the Government say you are protected up to $250,000 for a savings acct.
    Sportsbooks..... (check with your favorite politician Trump) LOST in the gambling business and that was some years back.. He was "suppossed " to be the greatest, But declared bankruptcy with a couple or more of them.
    We are living in times that are absolutely nuts in all venues from soup to nuts....

    FD lines are bad.. but I do like they allow you to move the points on a teaser well pass 7 points... I think it goes to 10 (in football).

    Crypto super easy- USD is worthless- not sure why anyone would prefer using it over bitcoin.

    My experience says otherwise. Did you have a bad experience or are you just guessing?

    As for the thread, Draftkings may say they only want losers, but so far they continue to tolerate and accept winners to a decent extent, moreso than most. I'm aware that may change at any time.

    He's a smart guys and knows what he's doing, but you don't know what you don't know. I don't think he knows. If I didn't know, I might not believe it either. Ya know?

    It doesn't matter which book .... if they can't make a profit on the front side ( their business---sports bets) nor turn a profit for their "ghost ownership" however that may be set up via lawyers and who knows what angles they use, THEY ARE GONE!!!! LOL

    That's like a health insurance CEO saying we only want the healthy people to buy insurance and pay premiums. We don't want those suckers who get cancer and have heart attacks.

    For sure They love mug players when they drop $$ on their sites.He says this is for entertainment only?? Then why DK offer money wagering?? Let them offer just free play then.He expects to have 100% mug players?? He should know that offering money wagering has also risks and a tiny % will profit even that there is math behind it and it can't happen in long term.
    Bottom line online gambling websites wordwide make trillions $ a year all together.
    The only ones who profit from online gambling are the the gambling sites,affiliates and money processors all on the expenses of the players.that dream to win easy money.
