    I've been using Fanduel for about 6 months and switched over to draftkings last week. Most of you have seen on the news that states are slowly beginning to make DFS sites illegal. I personally find it absurd that the government needs to get involved in these sites. They claim it to be gambling. These sites involve a lot of skill to actually win money. I do agree that since it's at the click of a button it could really ruin some lives, but it's about self control. Myself I've put about 500$ into both sites and have about a 780$ profit margin. The most I've won was on a 20$ ticket I got a prize of 500$ I've lost a lot too. So I want to know what your guys take on DFS sites are, and if you play how well you do at these sites.

    Just read the fine print at the bottom of the screens. Something along the lines of "these results are not typical, odds of winning, one in Infinity -1, etc"

    I think these sites are a huge ripoff. If you like gambling and you like sports do some real sports betting. Bovada is a great place to start, message me if you have any questions about it. Trust me, it's a lot more fun and you have a much better chance of winning if you know what you're doing and you're an intelligent sports fan.
