A new prop betting site called Monkey Knife Fight is causing a stir on the internet. MKF is not your average daily fantasy sports site because it solely focuses on making DFS easier.
After launching in the fall of 2018, Monkey Knife Fight has quickly risen to become the third biggest daily fantasy platform in North America, behind industry giants FanDuel and DraftKings. Naturally, it is also the industry’s fastest-growing daily fantasy sports gaming platform.
Let’s find out exactly what this innovative new DFS platform has to offer.
First things first, let’s discover what kind of offers will entice you to join Monkey Knife Fight?
MKF’s tagline makes it as simple as can be: “Play prop games. Win money. Online sports gaming is here, and it’s ridiculously easy to play. Just click the button below and follow a few simple steps that even a drunk monkey could complete.”
The emphasis on mostly smaller monetary amounts is not what one would see on the bigger betting and daily fantasy sports sites out there.
Monkey Knife Fight offers a 100% match on your first deposit (up to $50).
Creating a Monkey Knife Fight account is quick and easy. Firstly, visit the MKF site and then click on the orange sign-up button. After choosing a username, password and entering an email address, tick off the box that indicates you have accepted the site’s terms and conditions.
Next, MKF will request your name, address and date of birth (you must be 18+ years and live in a legal DFS states). Finally, click “Continue” and your new account will be created. Make your first deposit and you will receive a generous 100% match worth up to $50.
Simply, Monkey Knife Fight works on the premise that prop games are fun.
There is a main difference between MKF and say, DraftKings or FanDuel. Daily fantasy focuses on picking players to achieve specific results (goals, assists, points, etc.) The more the selected athletes perform, the more a score goes up. That increases your chances of winning in combination with other players.
With its contests, on the other hand, Monkey Knife Fight focuses on a set amount.
One guesses the over/under on a player, e.g., will Eli Manning throw for 289.5 yards against the Cowboys? The idea is choosing the over or the under. It is that easy.
Monkey Knife Fight’s focus is on picking players based on projections. Sports betting has some considerable similarities based on prop structure, but the differences lie in the presentation and the fact that MKF operates a fantasy sports game of skill.
The mechanics of playing with Monkey Knife Fight are also user-friendly.
First, select the players based on the choices given for that prop.
Second, choose the amount you want to have at risk (typically between $2-$500).
Lastly, how much you win depends on the odds. With props on Monkey Knife Fight, there is a specific multiplier that is prominently displayed.
MKF does use a decimal format, which may require an adjustment period. So, if you put $50 on a prop, and it paid out 2.28 times, that would constitute a payout of $114. That is a $64 profit.
The allure of this kind of prop is all player focused.
With Monkey Knife Fight, everything is geared to make the experience fast and user-friendly.
Picks can be made quickly with easy-on-the-eyes visuals. The website is easy to navigate, which helps users immensely, although there is an app in development.
Features include ways to deposit money by credit and debit card. You can make withdrawals from where the deposit originated or via PayPal. The banking works much in the same way as DraftKings or FanDuel.
Software, as far as the platform, is simple enough.
Everything is about keeping the user experience quick, fast and fun.
There are live chat options via social media as well for frequently asked questions. Responses to questions come in a rather prompt manner, a pleasant surprise compared to some of the more prominent DFS sites.
It’s as easy as choosing a game and picking between choices. With so many visual aids, using the Monkey Knife Fight site is truly a pleasant experience.
The highly interactive nature is a user’s dream. There are no complications or inhibitions. Just play away, watch the game and hopefully let the cash flow.
There is one additional feature that separates Monkey Knife Fight from most sites.
It offers “experts” who are incredibly knowledgeable in the field. Scott Cullen (formerly of TSN.ca) is one of the best and brightest in baseball, basketball and especially hockey. This adds a nice touch on the site to see prop picks that are fully explained by these experts. It makes for a useful learning tool as well.
Football will be available again in the fall. With the multitude of sports available, there is no downtime on Monkey Knife Fight.
Simply select a game and go. Choose if each player will either go over or under his projected amounts, and that is it.
In this example, you can win 2.1 times what they put down on an entry. For those who do not like exact certainties in life, there is even a 2 out of 3 option on the site. That is correct. You can pick among three over/under scenarios and if two convert — then they win. Yes, the multiplier is less, but it is an option that is unique in the industry.
This game asks for players to pick players based on a series of head-to-head player matchups. If you win, you take home two times your stake. However, you must get all the predictions correct. There is no 2/3 option here.
Here is one that has become quite the favorite. It has multiple applications in other sports. This is called “Putting Up Points” in hockey but has the same, basic premise. It is all about accumulation points based on a variety of stat types.
For example, pick three hockey players and you can win anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times a stake depending on how high you want to go (3.5-5.5 points). Other props can be in a 2 to 5 times range as well. It is as easy as just picking and placing a wager.
Again, wagers can be from $2 up to $500. Some props are a little less, so keep that in mind. The one listed above is up to $250 only.
The depositing options available at Monkey Knife Fight are currently limited to just credit or debit cards.
In terms of cashing out, MKF will initially refund withdrawal requests equal to the player’s original deposits amount. Any remaining balance withdrawals can subsequently be made via check, which generally take between three to five business days to process.
To be eligible for a Monkey Knife Fight, you must be 18+ years of age and a resident of one of the following states:
Monkey Knife Fight is one of the most user-friendly sites out there, period.
It’s fun, fast and you can make a few dollars while doing it. The ease of use makes it a winner in the DFS industry and has given Monkey Knife Fight a leg up with players.
