    How Come Fandual And Draftkings Have Monopoly USA Betting Market?

    Not one company can even dent them

    MGM gets its share and maybe Caesars but the rest tiny books including Circa

    I guess everyone just plays commercial books

    Speaking of Fanduel, anyone ever hit a parlay over 300-1? I just made that "mistake" and now I'm "excluded", until I'm not, hopefully. My fault, I shoulda known better. I think I screwed myself.

    I think the state has to check the account for any back taxes, child support, etc. Not concerned about that, but I'm always concerned about my account getting further limited. Because the more and longer I play, the more I win. Eventually, they'll tire of it and I'll get sayonara. I just fear I brought it to their attention. I'm more stupid than I thought I was.

    Is Rhode Island the only actual state-owned book in the country? It's a weird setup where Wiliam Hill is the oddsmaker, IGT runs the software, and Bally houses the two locations, but they are merely contracted, the book is owned by the RI Lottery, a state department.

    They wonít limit you within reason if you are betting main sports and typical type bets. Iíve definitely hit during football 300-1 parlays and nothing has changed.
    Theyíll cap some of your bets once you start betting over mid five digits on a game but I think thatís reasonable

    I use FanDuel a lot because their app is quick to bet and they refresh live lines fast. They donít block live lines as much as other books.
    Also so far I havenít seen any limits from them and Iíve won a sizeable amount and been betting pretty large with them

    We'll see. I'm a different animal, trust me. I know I'm already limited to 10% of the normal max, but that's still pretty good. I just don't want to get slashed further. Not sure what you mean by typical types. Lately, I've been winning with MLB same-game parlays, believe it or not. In the past, mostly live major sports (where I'm already on a wager delay).

    "Large" is relative, I'm pretty sure.

    So youíre saying that you can only bet 10% of what others can bet on an mlb game moneyline?
    Typical bets I meant moneyline, run line, totals, spreads. No unique lines or exotic type bets.
    When you say you are on a wager delay how long? You put a bet in and then how long does it take to post on Fanduel?

    their app is the quickest for me. everything runs nice and smooth with them. no delays, hiccups, postings that might not have posted, etc. that goes a long way.

    You really need to stop referencing “USA Books” without mentioning there is a big difference between Nevada and all the states who recently allowed legal sports betting. It’s not the same.

    Yeah, FD's app is quick.

    To answer JJ's question, FD and DK perfected Daily Fantasy a dozen years ago.
    They already had a head start.

    10% across the board. Anyone can see the normal limit when you are logged out and you type in an amount.

    Wager delay for LIVE only. It's pretty lengthy. Guess close to 15 seconds. If it changes during this time, I don't get it.

    BetMgM is pretty good. I'm up there overall and they gave me 50% or 100% reload bonuses every time I quit playing there for over 2 years until recently

    Are you kidding? When I go to the lace a live bet in Nevada it gets accepted as long as the line isn’t frozen. None of this offshore spin for 15-20 seconds until they can lock you into a bad number and if the number you try to bet ends up being a good number “bet not accepted” you can’t be serious. Offshore love platforms are manipulated beyond belief. What about that guy in New York or Jersey that got like 125/1 on that Broncos Raiders game? Guy got paid. Offshore would of kept his money and fukkkng banned him.

    Fanduel is like the 4th or 5th best option in AZ and that's only because of their futures. DK is trash. Caesars, Wynn, Barstool, MGM are all better overall. MGM & Wynn would step up if they improved their app.

    As far as legal books are concerned far and away the most betting options for stuff like obscure soccer leagues is Bet365ÖThey blow dK and Fanduel away as far as options on all sports. Also the best software as well. No buggyness.

    They are kind of a competitor of SBR, if Opti or somebody wants to take this link out it's cool.

    Draftkings good for UFC betting. Even better than most offshore. But that's about it.
