Jan/24/2015 Review – Daily Fantasy Sports has your review below for this Daily Fantasy Sports site that launched over the past NFL season.  You can learn more here.

Founded by Chicago Mercantile Exchange trader Russell Scalise, the site states: “Our goal is to provide the fantasy sports fan with captivating and exciting new contests, combined with our innovative scoring system, and lead fantasy sports to new heights”. With our ‘all-in’ scoring system, novice players can compete with the so-called professional handicappers and always be in the game.”

The site looks to incorporate poker and blackjack into the overall Fantasy Sports experience.  They do offer an "all in" wagering style Texas Hold Em' combined with a patented scoring system.

Pros – “All-In Game Plan” is an exclusive feature of the site.  It is a twist on poker and blackjack, only with fantasy sports thrown into the mix.  Their Pick 3 and Pick 4 game plans are also unique features.  H2H Tournaments also available.  PayPal, credit cards accepted.

Cons – Limited marketing and Internet presence means smaller player pools.  The site does not have an active social media presence at this time.  The site admits it is difficult for anyone without a grasp of poker or blackjack to understand how works and, as such, promises an extensive Q&A dealing with this concept.  It does not yet appear on their site however.  No affiliate program, just buddy referral system where customers can earn credits.  NFL only.
