Weekly DFS Review: PrizePicks
Here at MFST we have decided to introduce and review a new DFS site and app once per week.
This week we would like to introduce to you, an up and coming website called, PrizePicks.
Located out of Atlanta, Georgia, PrizePicks finished a private beta in 2018 and was official released in October. PrizePicks has set out to create the most simple, fast & fun fantasy game on the market.
PrizePicks isn’t your ordinary fantasy game. There are no lineups or salary caps and there’s no need to answer questions about a matchup. In PrizePicks you simply pick from a select group of players and guess if they will go over a specific amount of fantasy points.
To start, pick 2-4 players from various sports such as NFL, NBA, AAF*, MLB, NHL, MMA, and many more. Once your players are selected, you then choose to say if they will go over or under the specified amount of fantasy points. Once all selections are made, you can then follow your players live to see if they went over or under the amount given. Choose them correct and win.
For example let’s say that Todd Gurley’s fantasy points are 19.4 and Leonard Fournette’s are at 16.6. You would then select those two players and decide if they will go over or under that amount. In this case we will say that Todd will go over 19.4 and Leonard will go under. Now we will put that Todd got 24.4 points and Leonard got 5.6 fantasy points. This would result in Todd going over and Leonard going under which in turn means both picks were correct which equals a win.
To place a pick you must start with at least two players from different teams. You can then choose how much you would like to place an entry for. The minimum entry is $10 and a maximum of $100. Payouts on this site are determined by how many players you pick. A 2 player pick pays out 2.5x, a 3 player pick pays out 5x, and a 4 player pick pays out 10x.
PrizePicks has a wonderful advantage of being a website. There’s no need to download anything. On their website they have a clean interface with your own personal dashboard. On this dashboard you will see your winnings, balance, withdrawal tab, and any promo funds or free entries you have earned through their generous referral system. For you iPhone users – PrizePicks is also located in the App Store.
First time players, upon depositing, receive a free $10 entry, and a 50% deposit match. For all other users there is the option to deposit funds. You can deposit via eCheck, credit card, or Paypal ranging from $20 to $250 (Update: There is no limit on PayPal deposits).
