Doesn't look like this contest will fill but FanDuel are keeping the prizes at £15,000 so you can get more value for your entry fee today.

Currently my teams are the top two in a works league. Used all my three transfers now as only two weeks until they renew. Worth the risk.

Mahrez(out) Hazard(in)
Gray(out) Negredo(in)
Shaw(out) Terry(in)

Going for the extra points in tomorrows game. Predicting Hazard to be the magic man. Keeping all my City players in based on the extra fixtures.

Agreed Benny...makes the old Totel football guys look good! I entered teams last week, won a bit and tried to enter this but can't! This is because I am not verified apparently so a couple f emails to customer service and they confirmed that I have to go through the compliance checks. Done all that, emailed back 3 times and they have never got back back to me and I can't enter teams or withdraw the £175 in my account!

I mean this post has clearly been ignore, just like my last 10000 emails for my random and illegitimate suspension. I said I'd literally said you my Dna to get verified! Anywho, this post is just for show and I think you and the team have been complacent about handling customer service enquiries as there has been little to no communication between you and other members. Anywho continue to destroy the games reputation, unlike draft kings, the American players won't bail out incompetent customer service.

Anywho continue to destroy the games reputation, unlike draft kings, the American players won't bail out incompetent customer service.

As I mentioned, it would be unfair to discuss any individual accounts on a public forum, however I can assure you that the experience you have had is not typical of most users, but there is good reason for this.

As much as we need to keep the site safe and comply with regulations we also need to recognize the user experience and make sure that we don't ask users to just through hoops if there's no need. We also need to communicate the requirements and processes, because we're here to help our users out, not make things more difficult.

Therefore we've made our verification policy more prominent on our FAQ's page:
https://ukfanduel.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/ ... ion-Policy
https://ukfanduel.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/ ... -identity-

We're being proactive in contacting unverified users who we need verification from, so there's no late surprises when entering line-ups. We're also continuing to try and reduce the number of users that require verification. Again it's balance of security and user experience, but as a new business in the UK football industry we do have to vigilant, with the potential for suspicious financial activity and fraud. We'll continue to monitor this and I'll make sure the ideals of great customer service is consistently applied.

I've verified my self 108000000000000 times, sent my passport, billing proof even a sexy selfie (shaved my facial hair just for it). Anyway this is pathetic, my brother experienced the same problems and we've never ever had problems with fantasy football and as you can see above another person had similar issues. I'm not going to attempt to do anything, your support team are literally ignoring my emails and failed to explain properly anything. Such lack of clarification has left me infuriated and I do not wish to chase this matter anymore, my username is the same as my fiso one, if you want, then you can try, however I've given up the battle for this mediocre fantasy application.

Hello fiso,
i have been playing fanduel / draftkings Daily FF since they started in uk, mondogoal before that.
i am up slightly in winnings so this doesnt come from a losing point of view.
i would like members thoughts on my question.
would it be possible for staff at opta ( whom provide all stats across the sites ) to intentionally skew the data. whether by omitting a stat, not recording a tackle hear and there, recording chance created when there wasn't, etc.
Those type of stats provide half the points in fanduel.
the point of opta staff doing it is, would it not be possible for staff to play DFF sites indirectly ( i.e through a friend)
i would appreciate anyone who is interested in daily fantasy football views on this?

Interesting thought Revvies. While I'm not sure how one might prove any of that, having played it since the start too I like to think of it as legit. I watch a lot of football and analyse the points for nearly every game for my site www.fandueltips.co.uk and on the whole when I review the player stats I feel they are quite fair.

FanDuel NOT now in the UK.

Part of a recent email.

Unfortunately, we will not be offering contests in the UK this upcoming season. We hope to be back in the future, bringing you more of the games you love.
