Unfortunately, the daily fantasy sports market has been getting stale. Other than Jock MKT, no brands seem willing to experiment. I mean, how many times can you rework drafts and roster selections? Well, this ParlayPlay review seeks to show that even drastic changes can be useful. Today, we have a site that seemingly blurs the line between sports betting and DFS.
But how do they do it? Instead of drafts and leagues, ParlayPlay offers player props and lets you use them as legs in a parlay. Some might consider this far removed from classic DFS, but our team likes the innovative approach. So, let’s take a look at how ParlayPlay handles payments and usability before analyzing their fantasy model in detail.

ParlayPlay has a straightforward, user-friendly interface that makes it easy to slide and start playing. The platform’s cleanliness makes it easy to learn all the features. And even though parlays are traditional to sports betting, ParlayPlay does a great job of explaining them to DFS players.
Additionally, ParlayPlay offers a comprehensive selection of resources, helping users build parlays faster. Just go to the FAQ section, and you’ll easily understand how things work. This is important to us when we’re working with a new concept. Thus, Gambla is pleased with how ParlayPlay introduces newbies to the fold.
Unsurprisingly, ParlayPlay is a mobile-first fantasy site. You can find the apps on the App Store and the Play Store. Even the PC version is vertically designed. Design-wise, we like how the developers based the whole front end around yellow and white. This is a risky combination in iGaming apps, so we’re pleased to see it flow naturally. You can access all the features, perhaps even more easily than on your Mac or PC. Since this is a fairly new DFS site, we’re eager to see future updates.
ParlayPlay only accepts credit cards and bank transfers (ACH). In terms of banking, we consider them an old-school provider. Although PayPal would be nice, withdrawals via ACH are surprisingly speedy for such an old technology. You can deposit up to $250 per day, while withdrawal limits vary depending on your region and activity. Most importantly, ParlayPlay pays withdrawals in full and on time.
ParlayPlay lets you contact support via live chat, phone, and email. For live chat correspondence, though, you have to be logged in. The support team is more than capable of explaining everything, including how different types of parlays work. Furthermore, the ParlayPlay DFS website features a tidy and informative FAQ section. In Gambla’s experience, it’s so good that you won’t even have to talk to agents most of the time. That’s what we call efficiency.
As a reliable and trustworthy DFS provider, ParlayPlay DFS holds licenses in several states. This ensures compliance with industry regulations and standards. For what it’s worth, ParlayPlay has had a clean reputation ever since its launch in 2021.
When it comes to availability, the site is open to players from every state except Idaho, Hawaii, Louisiana, Washington, Nevada and Montana. Thus, ParlayPlay is one of the top daily fantasy sites in our availability rankings. As the remaining jurisdictions are inching towards legalization, we expect to see them spread in the future.
ParlayPlay isn’t all that invested in the rewards side of things. But when we’re looking at the site as a whole, it’s more like every parlay contains multiple rewards. Instead of banking on odds, ParlayPlay multiplies your wager if you get one or more picks right. For instance, getting three picks give you 6x. At the same time, a perfect 4/4 lets you leave with 10x your wager. The Hit It prop format gives leeway, so the rewards aren’t really as nonexistent as they initially seemed.
ParlayPlay centers its offers around parlays. Although there are multipliers and boosts, the novelty factor is enough to keep things going on their own. In addition, Gambla noticed that ParlayPlay also has some limited-time offers. These are mostly reserved for special occasions, so keep your eyes peeled to their homepage for more info.
ParlayPlay doesn’t offer traditional prize pools. Although it seems like an unfortunate thing to hear, the parlay-heavy format makes up for it. Realistically, individual parlays give you a better chance of winning than traditional freerolls or even leagues with friends. Since there are only 2-4 picks per slip, there aren’t so many factors you must pay attention to. So, in a way, things are easier for beginners without prize pools.
One thing we like about the fantasy sports selection here is the wide array of niches. You’d think that such a revolutionary format would be limited to just US sports. Of course, the majority of events target US sports. The NFL and NBA expectedly lead the way. But the props themselves are quite creative. Compared to other fantasy sites, ParlayPlay offers by far the most steals/blocks-oriented markets.
Surprisingly, NCAAF and NCAAB also comprise a large chunk of the homepage. Gambla has always been saying that college football would be ideal for fantasy. Not only is it chaotic, but it also results in you following teams you otherwise never would. Aside from the US side of things, there’s a decent amount of soccer props. Throughout our visits, we’ve seen props for La Liga, MLS, Premier League, Serie A and even the World Cup.
MMA is where ParlayPlay shines the most, though. They cover each and every UFC event, with all undercard performers being regularly featured. NHL props are quite abundant as well, too. We don’t know whether you’ll like parlays like this, but it’s clear that there’s no shortage of worldwide coverage.
If you were expecting to see traditional H2H tournaments, leagues and contests, you’ll be disappointed. But don’t worry – the real gist lies in the Parlays section. Yup, even the Gambla team was surprised to see that word on a daily fantasy sports site. Even though it’s in their branding, we didn’t quite expect ParlayPlay to take things this seriously.
Instead of creating lineups, you play against the house. To compete, you must choose individual players and wager money on them reaching certain statistical milestones. If you ask purists, this is straight-up sports betting. Nevertheless, Gambla disagrees. You don’t depend on team results most of the time, so you can tip the scales by knowing the players well enough.
But if we had to describe this type of DFS gameplay, we’d call it sports predictions. One of the best things about prop parlays is that you don’t depend on other people. If your fan league is dead, it stops being exciting. At ParlayPlay, though, you know there’s always an opportunity to compete.
This variety allows players to explore different gameplay styles and strategies, enhancing their overall experience and enjoyment.
As we said, the main focus of ParlayPlay is hybrid prop parlays. In a nutshell, you pick the players you want and try to capitalize on their stats in upcoming games. Our experts love this change of scenery, honestly. In traditional NFL and CFB fantasy leagues, for instance, you’re still affected by the team’s performance. The ParlayPlay approach, on the other hand, lets you isolate the player and analyze them correctly.
One of our reviewers is a big advanced stats guy when it comes to the NBA. And throughout his testing spree, he concluded that it’s really easy to apply theoretical knowledge here. ParlayPlay’s user-friendly interface also comes into play. It accentuates key stats and makes placing a bet really easy.
But how can you actually capitalize on stats at ParlayPlay? One would expect it to be a simple O/U format, but this DFS expands upon it. Let’s take a look at what ParlayPlay lets you bet on.
Your goal is to pick a player prop and choose whether the player will have more or less of a certain stat. For example, the O/U on points for Giannis Antetokoumpo is 33.5. If you pick Over and he scores 36, that particular leg wins. We like this one, as it provides a simple basis for beginners. Once you get a hang of things, you can try other stats and more specific ParlayPlay props.
We’d be pleased with the H/L bet option, but Hit It takes the concept to a new level. At first glance, it sounds like a binary bet. The player either does or doesn’t have X in a certain stat category. But you actually have to pick a range in which the player will accumulate stat points.
For instance, the Bengals are playing the Bills, and you want to potentially profit off the exploits of Joe Burrow. Instead of picking the O/U, you can pick one of the following yard ranges:
This increases the difficulty significantly, but don’t worry. The payout reflects the curve. And our favorite part of this innovative DFS prop is its flexibility. You’ll get the highest possible payout if you pick the exact range, but the neighboring ranges offer a cut of the winnings, too.
Honestly, Gambla says why not. If you’re tired of the same-old DFS leagues and endless strategizing, it’s a nice change. The payouts may not be as flexible, but you can use multipliers and capitalize on the increased flexibility in the Hit It format. Sure, it’s hard to pick the correct range of a player’s stat, but the potential payout is worth it. What’s more, ParlayPlay bets always feature 2-4 legs, which keeps things reasonable and urges you to bet responsibly.
Instead of building a traditional roster, you’ll get to choose between two and four player props. These can be either primary or secondary, with specific rules depending on the sport. You can pick the players to hit an exact range of a state (Hit It) or bet on the O/U (H/L).
Building a competitive mini-roster is a critical aspect of playing at ParlayPlay. Thankfully, the site provides an array of tools and resources to assist you in this process. Thus, you can browse in-depth player statistics, get expert advice, and filter between different props. Even though the format itself is a bit out there, ParlayPlay keeps things simple.
But then again, the lack of roster building at ParlayPlay might be a downside to some. Purists might miss the strategic part of the equation. Gambla, however, disagrees. Some beginners might be better off with simple picks and straightforward payouts. After all, fantasy sports are all about small, incremental successes.
ParlayPlay doesn’t use traditional ways of scoring in fantasy. Instead, you pick between 2 and 4 players from various sports and focus on their stats. The more picks you get, the more multipliers get added to your wager.
No, once you place your wager and select your picks, it’s done. If you made a mistake, try and contact support.
Withdrawal limits may vary based on factors such as player status and jurisdiction. However, you can deposit a maximum of $250 per day. Keep this in mind when planning out your strategies.
ParlayPlay DFS may offer deposit bonuses and free tickets for new players. Check the platform’s lobby for available contests at any given time.
Yes, you can enter multiple contests using the same 2-4 picks. However, you can also focus on different stats and take multiple approaches to the same players.
In conclusion, ParlayPlay DFS offers a comprehensive and engaging daily fantasy sports experience for players of all skill levels. This time, the observation holds even more weight. It’s very difficult to keep players engaged while offering a completely new product. We like ParlayPlay’s take on DFS.
It’s almost as if they took the best parts of sports betting and fantasy and fused them together. Since ParlayPlay allows for 2-4 picks, you won’t be forced to take big risks. And considering the innovations in prop betting, you won’t get bored quickly. So, if you’re tired of traditional fantasy leagues, this site will take you on a ride.
