    VIPs

    Hi all. I used to be in Draftkings VIP program and loved all the promos and contests especially during football season. Unfortunately my account there is essentially nuked and they arenít willing to consider changing their decision.
    Im looking for some legal books VIP that offer similar promos. Barstool is pretty good. Looking to move my action to Fanduel and Caesars for the football season. Would love to get in to there VIP program in time for any possible football promos. Anyone have any tips on how to make that happen? Emailed fanduel multiple times but they donít give up much info.

    They usually want to find you themselves after assessing your play I think.

    legal books with good promos hard to come by but if you haven't played at places yet there should be nice welcome bonuses.

    BetFred

    email them at vip@betfred.com

    I’ll give you the short and sweet / they want to see 10k in volume weekly.

    Email them and will give full details - but nice little welcome offer to start after your first week win or lose. They basically want to evaluate your action over 6-8 weeks to start.

    And as Optional correctly states - host will find YOU - based on volume. Simply not all action is created equally and losing doesn’t make you a VIP - sharp books know long term big winning and big losers can’t keep it up - you keep losing, you will go broke. Winning - they want to see a variety of action and at an amount that’s attractive. Play dogs and make big bets and you will be golden to many of these legal books who draw primarily small square bettors.

    And FWI - I personally think Caesars sucks ass - aside from the BetTheBoard promo (which paid a few this week) on NFL - I find little value there.

    FanDuel sucks worse - threatened to boot me for asking if there was any sort of reup bonus.

    MGM is very vanilla - but will toss a small reup after 2-3 weeks of inactivity.

    DK has been very nice to me - funnily just got an email from my host wanting to thank me for my action this weekend and to drop a few DK dollars into the account.

    If you don't bet any casino or lose big in sports you won't keep VIP. I started off down $150,000 on DK and they gave me Red Sox tickets, Nintendo Switches for my kids, over $50,000 in deposit bonuses, infinite DK merch, entry to a Baccarat tournament at Foxwoods with Kevin Hart.

    But when you go up on them- a lot of that stops. One thing that they can't take away from me though is that I've earned Onyx like 3 times this year so I have enough tier credits to get free tickets to the Super Bowl + experience (whatever that means).

    If they remove you from VIP though I have heard it's unlikely you will get it again unless you start losing a lot more.

    Thanks for all the great responses on here.

    Barstool actually had a nice VIP program that hooked you up with a Rep. Haven't seen as many good offers since the switch to ESPN Bet.

    I've played a ton on FanDuel and lost a good amount. Still No VIP offer and I'm limited there.

    Draftkings still pretty great with their offers VIP or not... when you aren't targeted by them as a winner.

    In Illinois, so no BetFred. Getting HardRock and Fanatics soon though.
