    DraftKings VIP

    Curious - is DraftKings VIP all that valuable ?

    They just started targeting me with offers - seems pretty decent - but how long will it last. For example latest offer is $100 wager credit for every $1k in settled bets (up to -200 odds) - good for 4 days and up to 2k in bonus bets:

    Also giving NoSweat SGP - up to $100 risk - no legs greater than -500. Not highly valuable to me - but hey sure beats the $10 limit they put on the NoSweat typically.

    Will say payouts are lighting quick - which is super nice. BetEd took a full day to decide their system was down and cancel on me - and then never notified me.

    Live lines are sometimes very opinionated - which is a nice change in the sea of copycat lines. Overall had a good experience- but just wondering if itís worth making them my #1 choice and swinging majority of my action to them for the perks - or will it end after they realize Iím not a long term loser.

    If you're actually a long term winner and a live bettor, you know that different outs and live lines are invaluable. Worry about getting shut down when it happens.

    Actually surprised they have been as accommodating to me as they have - but also view it as I’m relatively new - so they don’t view me as a “long term” winner - just a schmuck who got lucky a few times.

    Been away from the scene for a while / started back in as the legalized gaming and bonus offers were just too tempting to pass on. It’s been a very good season so far - yet some places continue to toss out bigger and better offers.

    Yea - the options are great right now too - feels like the “good old days” being able to fund simply - having 3 or 4 outs and solid bonuses. Last night Ok State / St Bonn was a perfect example of some of the great opportunities presented in live betting - getting +154 from DK when others hanging -130ish on St Bonn - never get rich pounding these mids / but add in the bonuses and rewards and being able to repeat a few times and you can get eek out a nice little profit week to week that makes the hobby worthwhile and enjoyable.

    They must send out a lot of VIP offers...I got 2 at different times. Did not respond to either. Not a big player...and you absolutely KNOW it's likely not going to end well for someone.

    2 new offers today

    $100 bonus bet for every $250 SGP (up to 5x - good for 48 hours - each leg must be -200 or higher)


    up to $2500 in gift and bonus bet based on volume (through Sunday - bets -300 or under) 10k gets you $100 50k- gets you $500 - caps out at $2500 for 250k. Single game is 1x points and parlay is multiplied (so a 2 leg gets 2x - up to 10 leg @ 10k).

    Decent offers both of them - I’ll probably nab all 5 of the SGP bonuses - don’t know how far I’ll get into the second offer - but combine that with Heritage no juice offer and some of the half juice / low juice offers could yield some easy volume.

    They phase out after awhile.

    Deposited 5,000 when it was a 20% FP, 1x roll intro. Immediately got the VIP offers. Lost there over the course of the year, including losing large bets hedging risk free bets on other sites. Got a few 20% cash offers. Haven't had anything in a year. Still down at DK, but not in 2023. Haven't heard anything since 2022 in VIP, likely bet around 5,000 a week or so.

    Keep hearing that - but hey - I’m here for a good time/not a long time.

    Im sure the offers will dry up as they realize my play is not the most “attractive” - and I’ll move on. Till then just soaking up the freebies and letting my bonus/winnings grow themselves. I’ve walked away with my initial stake back - and that’s what matters - now it’s just taking a bit of profit at a time and trying to keep the profit train moving as long as I can.

    Also curious to see how BetFred VIP treats me - they were pretty nice to start last week with their comps. Just wish they would get the PP issues fixed - can’t payout using that method presently and cannot get ACH to work - which leaves me with check in the mail as only option.
