Recently, I was able to connect with Ben Lipson, Founder at SportsTradex. I’d heard rumblings of a big time $10,000 GPP and I wanted to go right to the source to learn more about what’s going on this Saturday over at ST. I was really happy that Ben was able to find time in his schedule to sit down with me, not only to talk about the GPP (that everyone needs to have a seat in), but some of the unique games that they offer to DFS players. You really owe it to yourself to check it out – and to get you ready for your experience there this weekend...
Brian Rucker – LuDawgs (BR) – With so many daily fantasy sports sites constantly being added in the daily fantasy sports community, what makes SportsTradex stand out from the rest?
Ben Lipson – Sports Tradex (BL) – We offer a variety of unique, fun games. At the moment, we are one of the leaders in non salary cap daily and weekly real money fantasy games. Our most popular games are the pick’em games. You pick which pre-set fantasy teams will outscore each other. For example, do you think a team of Drew Brees and Michael Crabtree will outscore a team of Peyton Manning and Donald Brown? You will make seven of these types of picks in pick’em contests. The SportsTradex user that makes the most correct picks wins!
(BR) – While browsing the SportsTradex website, I have noticed HUGE tournaments with tons of overlay, how excited are you guys about throwing big tournaments that are currently listed?
(BL) – We are really excited to enter the realm of extremely attractive prizes. In 2013, SportsTradex paid out $155,000 in cash prizes and we are set to do 10-20 times that in 2014. I bet most readers would be impressed…if I do say so myself.
(BR) – Ok, lets quit the small talk lets talk about this $10,000 Quadruple Up GPP! There are currently only 24/100 entries with a $108 entry fee. Doesn’t that seem like free money sitting out there for the taking?
(BL) – It does! Surely, the contest will begin to fill up between now and Saturday’s start, but there will probably be good overlay value for those that like to go after it. The great thing about the quadruple up is that it is a balance between a GPP and a 50/50. You can enter up to 10 times and an individual could potentially win as much as $4000 or 40% of the prize pool. At the same time, the top 25 will place in the money so the odds are fairly high.
(BR) – For any users who do not want to pay the $108 entry fee are there any qualifiers?
(BL) – Yes, we have a few qualifiers left that will run Friday as fantasy basketball contests. That will be the last chance to qualify, so all the DAWGS out there should claim their spots. It is going to be a popular day of qualifiers.
SportsTradex users can also earn a free spot by referring 5 depositing users. This offer compliments our already great “Refer A Friend” program. For every depositing friend a player refers, they get a $25 bonus and the friend gets a $25 bonus. If you reach for 5 referrals and fall short, you will still have bonus money for the referrals you introduced to SportsTradex.
(BR) – All of the members of LuDawgs should know about SportsTradex by now, but why should they join one of the most underrated sites in daily fantasy sports?
(BL) – We are intensely focused on customer service. I am proud of our player friendly policies. For example, bonus money at SportsTradex is available immediately as cash – the first dollar a user spends with just a minimal 3X rollover requirement. Our current users would probably agree that we are always extremely fair, transparent and responsive. I am proud of the SportsTradex team for always making the daily players our top priority.
(BR) – Do you have any special deposit bonuses or offers towards members of LuDawgs?
(BL) – Dawgs receive a first time bonus of 30% using deposit code “LUDAWGS” and as I mentioned, the deposit bonus is available immediately with no drip. Additionally, DAWGS are entitled to unlimited Lute cash outs. So if you make a deposit of any size and you have a lot of Lute, cash it out through the cash out page here at LD – we’ll add it all to your playable account as cash. I hope more members of this great community take advantage of those offers.
(BR) – So that about sums it up! Make sure you head over to SportsTradex and check out the $10,000 Quadruple Up GPP on Saturday!
