Monkey Knife Fight

Daily Fantasy Review

Players must be at least 18 years old to join the site, and it is available in the following states: AK, AR, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, IL, KS, KY, MA, MD, MI, MN, NE, NH, NM, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, RI, SC, SD, TX, UT, VT, WV, WI, WY. Monkey Knife Fight currently offers parlays for basketball, baseball, hockey, football, golf, and soccer.

Pros:
  • Great graphics and funny jokes throughout the site
  • Contests cancelled if one or more players in the prop don’t play
  • Quick withdrawal system
Cons:
  • No mobile app

How To Play

The first thing to do when setting up a bet on Monkey Knife Fight is choose the sport to bet on. This is done at the top of the page. Once the sport is chosen, the user must choose which game they would like to place a prop bet on. There are multiple bets listed under each game. Users must choose if they would like to play over/under, stat shootout, fantasy challenge, or rapid fire. The descriptions of each are listed below. Once a bet is selected, all a user has to do is root for their selection to win. With live stats on the site, it is easy to follow how each bet is doing.

Types of Games

  • Over/under: In the over/under game, a user has to select over or under for a set of stats for two players. For example, if the Houston Texans are playing the San Francisco 49ers, an over/under might include the receiving stats for DeAndre Hopkins and Deebo Samuel. The user would have to correctly predict both players’ over/unders in order to win the bet. As more players are added onto the parlay, the payouts increase. There are certain selections where a user can win for getting three out of four or four out of five but other selections where a user will need to win each leg of the parlay in order to receive a payout.
  • Stat Shootout: Stat shootouts hold a different name throughout all sports. The name will pertain to the specific stat being gambled upon in the prop bet. For example, Reception Connection is a popular one for the NFL. In this game, three players are given a target goal for total receptions between all three players. Users can choose one of three tiers to place their bet on. Tier 1 has the lowest number of receptions but lowest payout while Tier 3 has the highest of each.
  • Fantasy Challenge: Fantasy challenge is very similar to stat shootout but revolves around fantasy points. Three players are given a target goal for total fantasy points between the three players. Just like stat shootout, users can place a wager on Tier 1, 2, or 3 with Tier 1 having the lowest number but lowest payout and Tier 3 having the highest of each.
  • Rapid Fire: Rapid Fire is a game in which a user has to select a parlay of how certain players will do against each other. For example, in a Milwaukee Bucks vs. Boston Celtics game, a Rapid Fire game might have the user select who will have a higher total of points between Giannis Antetekounmpo and Gordon Hayward and also who will have a higher number of rebounds between Brook Lopez and Enes Kanter. In this scenario, Antetokounmpo is likely to score more points in the game, so Hayward might start the match being given +7.5 which will factor into the user’s bet. Some of these Rapid Fire bets require all of the selections to be correct while some allow the user to miss one.

Pros

Monkey Knife Fight has an amazing website that is a lot of fun to scroll through. It has funny jokes and great graphics throughout the site while also providing a beautiful interface on the actual bet selection pages. It is a unique site that can be quite addicting because of its constant prop bets for each game. It is also a nice change of pace from having to set daily fantasy lineups that require attention to a large group of players as opposed to just a few like on Monkey Knife Fight. The site provides a very nice feature where contests will be cancelled if a player does not end up playing in a game. This can be especially nice for the NBA where lineups are not announced until late in the day. So, if a prop bet is placed on a player that ends up not playing, the full amount of the bet is refunded. Also, Monkey Knife Fight has a very quick withdrawal system that does not keep you waiting for your money. It has contest promotions like free contests and deposit bonuses, so it is always advised to Google current promotions before using Monkey Knife Fight.

Cons

One of the biggest cons affecting Monkey Knife Fight right now is that it does not have a mobile app. Users can still play on their phones by using their mobile browser, but the lack of an app can be off-putting for some. Monkey Knife Fight does not offer props on all of the sports played, so this will be something to keep an eye on for the future. A selection of more than just six sports would do a lot towards creating more intrigue to this prop betting site. Monkey Knife Fight does not currently accept PayPal for deposits or withdrawals.

How To Deposit

The first step for new users will be to sign up for an account on Monkey Knife Fight. This can be done either on the pop up that appears when first visiting the site or through the sign up tab which can be found on the left side of the screen. There is no obligation to deposit money when signing up, so a user can sign up and look around the site before deciding if they would like to deposit their money.

Monkey Knife Fight accepts any major credit or debit card at sign up with a $10 deposit minimum.

Currently the only form of withdrawal on Monkey Knife Fight is a mailed check which takes three to five business days.

Conclusion

Monkey Knife Fight is an absolute blast, especially for people looking for a change from the typical daily fantasy formula. Not having a mobile app or connection to PayPal is frustrating, but the ease and fun of the rest of the site more than makes up for it. This is a great site for both new users and experienced gamblers who like to place money on prop bets and make the games they are watching a little bit more interesting.
