FanDuel’s Players Club
FanDuel rewards it’s users through the FandDuel’s Players Clubs. This loyalty program rewards you when you enter a contest. Everytime you pay a entry fee you will earn FanDuel Points. Whether you enter a lot of low entry fee contests or a few high entry fee contests, you can quickly earn FDP as it is based on the total amount you spent on entry fees. As of writing, you earn 5 FDPs for every $1 you spend on entry fees. If your entry fee for a contest is $10, FanDuel will give you 50 FDPs to your account.
Just a reminder, your FDPs will expire if you are not active earning FDPs for one year. But once you start entering paid contest, you will see how easy it is to have fun playing.
Use FDPs to Enter Paid Contests
Once you have accrued enough FDPs, you can use your points to fund your payment for a paid contest. That means the free FDPs you earned, gives you another chance to win free money by entering a contest of your choice.
To pay using your FDP balance instead of from your account account balance, you will choose that before submitting your roster. When you enter a contest of your choice, you can fill out your lineup as usual. Once you are ready to submit your roster you will see a blue link that lets you enter using your FDP, showing the total FDP needed. This will be right next to the green “Enter” button.
How FanDuel Works
FanDuel offers you daily fantasy sports contests that gives you a chance to win money prizes. Similar to fantasy leagues, you select a roster for a particular sport of your choice. Depending on the scoring system and games available for that day, you will assemble your roster of available players that you believe will give you the most points. If you place in the winners’ prize bracket you will receive cash prize to your account once the contest is over.
When you go to the FanDuel Lobby, you can choose the contest that best fits your expertise. From the Lobby you will first select your sport of choice: NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, PGA, etc. Then you can choose the contest type: Tournaments, Beat the Score, Multipliers, etc. Contest type will have different scoring rules, also the types of positions you select to fill your roster and the percentage of people who can place for a cash prize. Once you start playing, you will find out which contest type you prefer to give you a better chance of winning. Some of the important factors to consider when choosing a contest is entry fee, players who already entered, number of entrants, single or multiple entries asllowed, prize payout and games/players eligible.
