BallR.com Review – Daily Fantasy Sports

Gambling911.com has your BallR.com review below as we point out the pros and cons of this nearly one-year-old Daily Fantasy Sports site that, on the surface, appears to be going down the right path of success and has mustered up some good feedback within the Fantasy Sports community to date.  The site is based out of Las Vegas.  You can check out the site here.

The site offers Daily Fantasy Sports for NFL, NBA and Major League Baseball.  BallR.com has fresh content on its site daily, which is a very positive sign.  Despite this, they stopped being active on Twitter back in August even though they have over 14K followers. 

Games offered here are standard salary cap. 

Daily fantasy games are offered at buy-in levels between $1.10 and $108.  The number of entrants typically ranges between 2 and 100.

The site offers a standard rake structure as seen below.  

Pros – 200% signup bonus up to $500, which is well above standard for the Daily Fantasy Sports sector.  The roster building page is among the first you will be landing on and this can prove helpful to many a Fantasy player.  Solid mobile interface.  Compete with friends with a maximum of 10 entries where you are in charge of determining the tournament rules.  Site is user-friendly for the most part. 2-player to 10-player games.  Limited number of grinders so more frequent (though smaller) cash wins potential. Decent signup bonus up to $500 (200% based on a $250 deposit).  Ability to create and archive lineups that helps in development and testing of strategies. Top-of-the-line tutorial.

Cons – Draft room navigation can use improvement.  Relatively new site and daily purses will be low in the foreseeable future.  Much smaller cash prizes when compared to more established sites like Draftkings or Fanduel.  Bonus is forfeited if not claimed within 10 minutes of signing up.  Player dashboard can be difficult to navigate and there is a bit of "information overload". 

Scoring Systems for NBA and Major League Baseball, which features a salary cap of $100,000.
