ParlayPlay may not be a jack-of-all-trades, but they do one thing really, really well — parlays. There's much more to this DFS platform, however, which we uncover in our ParlayPlay review.

It's not one or the other, like some DFS sites, but instead, it's an all-inclusive bonus offer—
Claiming the bonus is straightforward.
You need to sign up on ParlayPlay, verify your account, and make your first deposit.
When you sign up, you'll have the opportunity to add in your promo code. That's where you'll enter "EWD" during signup.
Once you deposit a minimum of $5, the bonus is granted in the form of promo entry coupons.
On top of this excellent bonus offer, one of the things we love about ParlayPlay is that they don't just offer bonuses to new users but to their current users as well.
The quality of a bonus is typically tied to terms. Some are better than others, but fortunately, we felt that ParlayPlay offers pretty relaxed terms for their promotions.
These bonus terms are reasonable compared to other DFS sites, so we're going to give ParlayPlay high praise for their bonus.
Some DFS sites offer a plethora of game options. From head-to-head to pick 'em style contests to tournaments.
But with ParlayPlay, it's all in their name. They do one thing really well, and that's parlays.
What's a parlay?
It's multiple picks that all must win for you to cash out. It's different from a money line bet or a point spread, as with those, all you have to do is pick one team, and you can win. With parlays, like at ParlayPlay, you have to pick two or more winners, and all must win.
It's an exciting format, but we do wish they'd expand their selection.
To change it up a bit: ParlayPlay does offer two different styles of parlays — all-in or insured.
So, what's the deal with these two?
|Higher risk as you must win all picks to get the payout.
|Lower risk as you can still win some cash without winning all picks.
|Higher payouts with a multiplier effect based on the number of picks.
|Reduced payouts compared to All-In, reflecting the lower risk.
|Suitable for players confident in their picks and seeking higher rewards.
|Ideal for players who prefer a safety net and are okay with smaller winnings.
|Number of Correct Picks Required
|Must correctly predict all selected picks.
|Can win with fewer correct picks, offering a more forgiving gameplay experience.
You can select which format straight from your bet slip. They'll even tell you how much you stand to win for each so you can make an informed decision.
ParlayPlay's free-to-play tournaments are a hotbed of excitement, where the competition is fierce, and the rewards are real.
We separated these contests from their typical game formats as they follow the same parlay standard and are one-off contests that come around occasionally.
Here's how it works—
Now, you might be wondering what's up for grabs. Here's a breakdown of the prizes—
We recommend you get in on this action. You get to compete against the best and aim for those fantastic cash prizes without spending a penny.
When it comes to the digital landscape of ParlayPlay, we were struck by the perfect blend of simplicity and functionality.
Whether you're using the app or visiting the website, you'll encounter an interface that's polished, responsive, and incredibly user-friendly.
Overall, we were pleased with the app and website. Both have the same functionality and are easy to use. That says a lot about a DFS operator.
|Google Play Store
|Apple App Store
ParlayPlay has garnered impressive ratings across both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store, reflecting the overall satisfaction of its user base.
With a stellar 4.4-star rating on Google Play, supported by over 500 reviews and an astounding 10,000+ downloads, it's evident that ParlayPlay strikes a chord with its audience.
Apple App Store users are equally content, rating it a commendable 4.6-star rating, with over 2,600 ratings and a notable ranking of 65th in the Sports category in the store.
There's not too much you can say about the ratings — they're simply solid.
A common thread among user feedback is the appreciation for ParlayPlay's simplicity and user-friendly design. While a small fraction of users mentioned occasional hiccups related to deposits and withdrawals, these appear to be isolated and not indicative of a systemic issue.
Everything we thought to be true about ParlayPlay seems to hold up with the masses.
Most DFS players don't even consider customer support until it's too late.
With ParlayPlay, you might be a bit disappointed because we were.
ParlayPlay only offers two options for support — email and FAQs.
|Contact the ParlayPlay customer support team at email@example.com
|Parlay has one of the most extensive FAQ sections we've seen. See their FAQs here.
That is the bare minimum any DFS site or even a sportsbook should have. After all, you're pumping money into their system; the least they can do is be available when you need them.
Despite this, their email response is still pretty good. The response time is above average, as it took them 8 hours to respond to one of our inquiries.
On top of that, their FAQ section is pretty robust. They answer just about every question you can have, which is suitable for the most part.
Sure, both options deliver quality, but sometimes you need a representative ASAP, as a game is about to start. That's where live chat or a phone option would come in.
To get a top-tier rating for customer support, we'd like to see them have both of these options. Unfortunately, this is where they'll take the biggest hit in our ParlayPlay review.
ParlayPlay stands out with its user-friendly interface and rewarding bonus structure, making it an excellent choice for DFS players.
Its focus on parlays offers a unique gaming experience you don't get to see at other sites, but a broader range of game types would be welcome.
While customer support is adequate for most, adding more immediate contact options could enhance the overall experience.
Overall, ParlayPlay is a strong contender in the DFS space, deserving a rating of 4.6 out of 5.0 stars for its blend of simplicity, engagement, and user-centric approach.
We would recommend this DFS platform every day of the week. 4.6 stars is not a bad rating at all.
