In case you have been on a desert island for an extended stay, the hottest thing in sports fun and betting is fantasy sports, particularly daily fantasy sports.
A couple major players dominate this industry, but that might change now with a major new contender, Fantasy Draft. They will be doing everything right.
Unfortunately this weekend they did it so right that their servers were jammed and the site failed for hours.
You can understand why. They had three contests, $5, $10, and $25 that guaranteed $50,000, $100,000 and $250,000 respectively. They needed 10,000 players each just to break even.
Because of the problems, they only had about 4,000 players. The not only are honoring all of their guarantees, but ADDITIONALLY they are returning all entry fees to people who were not winners.
That is strong, impressive, and professional.
That first weekend $300,000 hit that they are taking will probably make them millions.
