    There’s a lot of post showing up about this, and we are going to put them all in one thread. I know a lot of people have a lot of questions, but we don’t need a lot of threads talking about the same thing.

    What happens to our money in our accounts? Do we still get to withdraw it? I’m sure this has been answered already, but I couldn’t find it

    I would at least be cautious. Don’t forget what Black Friday did to the online poker world. It took some people 3-4 years to get paid their account balances.

  • Turn2gold

    I just won $3,000 I left 10% for this weeks contests and cashed the rest ….I don’t see any reason keeping a huge balance especially with whats went down lately …If I need to deposit more then I deposit more

    Here’s something that has me on tilt….

    I’m from Florida, currently having one of my most profitable NFL weeks, and 95% of the winnings are a lock before the MNF game is play…… BUT it seems active contests were cancelled in Nevada once it was deemed illegal. It makes me wonder, if DFS were to be cancelled in Florida before the MNF game is over, would sites simply refund me my money for all contests or allow me to ride these last victories out? If you knew my luck, you really would think the worst lol. I can’t wait to withdraw if Florida makes it through the night. lol

    I live in Nevada and had no issues withdrawing from draftkings , yahoo, or fanduel,

    How do the sites verify my location? IP Address? Address for Credit Card on file? If it’s just IP Address I could still play if I just crossed the border to GA (I live in FL) to set lineups right?

  • rgreuli

    That might not work as Georgia is now looking into DFS.

    I don’t know if you read this or not, but it’s the most relevant thing that has come out about TN.

    My guess (emphasis on guess) is that they use IP addresses. That would be why you’re required to have your location services turned on when accessing the app on a smart phone or tablet.

    Online poker used this method to track players when Black Friday hit. Several players figured out ways to disguise their IP addresses but the practice was considered extremely risky because if caught playing online poker in the US it could be considered a violation of the Terms of Service that could result in your entire account’s balance being confiscated.

    Can you still withdraw all of your balance even if you have a pending bonus/balance still? Fanduel and StarsDraft

    “In a Sept. 23 letter to the CEOs of FanDuel and DraftKings, Georgia Lottery attorney Joseph Kim says the companies appear to violate Georgia law.”

    Sounds quite serious… GA may drop soon too.

    You don’t get it when you play on a site in a state that isn’t allowed you risk the entire sites integrity. Dk and Fd dont won’t you to play because it will fuck them and everyone else.. But this is a me first industry and no one cares

  • RockyTop55

    I’m a low stakes player that plays for the fun of it. My account rarely has more than $50 in at a time. I’m willing to take the chance my account is confiscated if I get to keep playing. It’s not going to make or break me. Thank you for your concern though.

  • IronMonkey415

    They can have my $3.57 on Draftking if the Feds take over. Matter of fact I hope they choke in it.

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Live in GA and have Never played the lottery and never will.

    If the sites were SHUT DOWN, then it’s hard to envision a scenario where you can’t get your money out, as whatever authority orders the shut down will likely stipulate that players be allowed to withdraw their money.

    That said, there is no reason to leave any meaningful amount of money on these sites. They don’t charge for deposits or withdrawals. Many things could happen. If you value your money, why leave it in the control of others when you aren’t getting anything in return for it?

    I want to leave it in because I still wanna play dfs while I’m able to. That’s why I’d rather wait until I absolutely have to before taking out my money

    PokerStars paid out right away. The reason that Full Tilt didn’t pay out right away was because they were basically insolvent and didn’t have enough cash in the bank to pay out player balances. Balances on any of the major DFS sites are much safer as these sites are all run by American companies that would actually face legal repercussions if they were to not pay out. Still wouldn’t recommend leaving any life changing money on the sites, especially since it’s relatively easy to transfer money back and forth, but don’t think there’s much to worry about here IMO.

  • Motovin

    Both of these companies pushed too hard on advertising entering this NFL season. Had they just kept the same course and allowed themselves to grow at a steady rate we wouldn’t be in the middle of all this.

    I live in Florida and if it gets banned, will I still be able to participate in free contests? I am currently in a season long league that uses draftkings every week for lineups
