Easy! You earn FDP every time you enter a money game, whether you win or lose. The number of points you get for entering a contest is 10 times the contest entry fee. Sometimes we’ll even run promotions that increase the rate at which you earn FDP, rewarding you even more!
You can view your current balance of FDP's and how many FDP's you have earned this month in 'My Account' found by clicking on your username on the top right of the page.
You can use your FDP to enter any paid contests. Simply choose the league or tournament you wish to enter, and on the draft screen you will see a link under the entry fee that lets you use FDP to enter instead of cash. After you enter, your FDP spent will be deducted from your FDP balance. Your monthly total of FDP earned will remain the same.
Based on how many FDP you earn in the month, you can also qualify for entry to our monthly FDP free play contests. You don’t need to spend FDP to enter these free play contests – it’s just our gift to you! Note that FDP will count towards the month in which they are awarded. Since FDP are now awarded when games settle, FDP for contests entered on the last day of the month will often count towards your total for the following month.
The October free play contests will be held on Sunday, November 6th with NFL. The levels are as follows:
You may enter as many of these four contests as you've exceeded the minimum FDP threshold for. So if you have earned 16,000 monthly FDP, you may enter Gold, Silver, and Bronze. The date of upcoming FDP free play contests will be posted to this page a few days before the end of each month. The free play contests themselves will be posted in the lobby the night before and will be visible only if you are qualified to enter. If you have qualified and do not see the FDP free play contests even once they've been posted, it probably is because of your Home screen filter settings. Make sure that you are not filtering out free contests and that you have selected a 'Start Time' of either 'All' or 'Next available'.
We certainly have future plans for FDP and our rewards program. Keep your eyes peeled for news! Watch the Promos tab for details. We will often run promotions allowing you to earn FDP faster than normal.You earn FDPs by entering any paid contest on FanDuel. The earning rate may vary, and we may award FDPs for other activities in future. If contest entries used to earn FDP do not run (e.g. if you are not matched, or cancel the entry) we will reclaim the FDP gained. If such a claim renders you ineligible for a free play contest due to threshold restrictions we will remove you from that free play contest. Only FDP earned prior to the end of the month and prior to the start of the monthly FDP free play contest starting count towards entry and monthly FDP do not carry from month to month for monthly FDP free play contest qualification purposes. FDP cannot be redeemed for cash. We reserve the right to award or reclaim FDP.
