    Remember that PPD a week ago for the WSH vs BAL game where they cancelled it despite no rain? i begged them for my money back cuz i had players from that game and they gave it back to me, 200 bucks. how fair is that to everyone else?

    i wasnt going to say anything, but i am seeing the recent posts about DK and ive had enough of the “integrity” team, which is total garbage.

    Looking at that picture in your profile…It makes sense how angry and scorned you are. It’s not your fault, repeat it in first person over and over whenever it’s late and night and you are alone with your 9 cats and quarter entries into the one thing in life you have which brings you a smile big enough to show all of those brown teeth.

    ROFLMAO And now your true character is revealed. Feel better?

    Have you tried looking at this from draftkings perspective? They show your lineup scoring 111. You didn’t edit it before they messed up the slate, not that it would have mattered if you did. So your evidence for your first place lineup(which is also crazy to assume you get first) is a piece of scrap paper with hearts and doodles on it. Would you have emailed them if your lineup scored 50 points and asked them to remove the funds from your account because you would have lost? I don’t think so, so yea you are asking for a free handout because you had the best lineup ever, except the only proof of it existing is on a piece of paper.

    So back to the original question, how did you expect dk to handle this situation?

    P.S. No one cares you are a female you can probably stop trying to drive home that point in every post.

    Since this is a sensible comment I’ll be myself with responding politely. …..You realize I asked for nothing and that has nothing to do with any of this lmfao. I literally asked for nothing you do….Get….That right?

    I did however edit my contests and it said accepted before leaving my home and they stayed in the emails that most did not go through if trying to edit after a certain time.

    I wouldn’t have said a word had that lineup even scored in the 150 range tbh. It’s about being the best at something even for a day . I refuse to not be the best I can be at everything.

    Again I didn’t ask them for anything…Except an explanation on what occured which LED TO THEM CREDITING A BS TICKET AND BONUS I NEVER ASKED FOR. THE ISSUE WAS THEM DOING AS THEY PLEASED AND NOT HAVING TO EXPLAIN IT TO A PAYING CUSTOMER. A “VIP” AT THAT. The man lacked integrity and cancelled my account and literally had no reason to do so and even have a bs reason just cause he had been stumped and was upset and felt like what’s this peon doing questioning mighty draftkings.

    I’m not driving home I’m a female people made a big deal of me mentioning it when it’s common sense this is a male dominated industry and I bet most people doesn’t know a single woman that plays and really understands it. I’m not trying to argue with you or anyone and why you are all taking the side of a company who most likely you are in the hole too as 90% of players are or whatever the number is ….You’d think you’d want to be understanding and come together with strong people who don’t fret from a challenge.

    I didn’t want to quote the whole horrible post, so I picked the most benign part of it. It’s become clear that you are the type of person the DFS community can do without.

    Can you screenshot or copy/paste the entire email exchange?

    Your entries were refunded, along with everyone else’s, and they attempted to compensate you on top of that, what is not to understand? They had a technical difficulty and had to cancel the slate, it was handled poorly but I’m not sure what else you expect them to do. They emailed everyone explaining why it was cancelled.

    I can’t believe I am responding to this thread again. You’ve made some truly unnecessary posts either mocking others or telling us how great you and your life are. All of that is completely unnecessary and no one cares.

    But to the above, what the hell explanation were you looking for? It was posted at various places and even discussed here. I am sure DraftKings sent an email to all users affected. I did not even play the slate and I know the explanation. DraftKings tried to push the start time of the games back as the first two games of the slate were already postponed. When trying to push it back to the next game which I believe was 4:05, they accidentally put it in as 4:05 AM instead of PM. This caused players to lock at around 1:50 before many people were able to edit their lineup, especially those that had reserved entries. So DraftKings decided due to the number of users that were affected, they had to cancel the slate. It is unfortunate you “happened” to have a great lineup, but they really do not owe you anything more. There was nothing additional to explain.

    I’m feeling pretty wonderful ATM. Dont have to sit around praying to be out thousands of others in order to get ahead in life . I’m diverse and honestly it’s quite similar to the lottery in some ways. There are so few of you who would ever be able to understand how easy things like money come when you are a strong, confident and more importantly happy person. You , my dear began the insults and chose to pick what you could not see and give your opinions based on assumptions. I shot back with my opinion of your appearance. No reason to be upset as we all have opinions right ?

    Yeah I went full contrarian on that slate and was really pissed initially because I felt like I had the nuts. I didn’t even get invited to the freeroll…but it’s all good. Life goes on! Maybe I’ll shoot em an e-mail and ask for a .25 arcade ticket.

    Back on topic though. Did this Ryanzan dude really make a new profile as a “pregnant woman” just to prove a point? Holy shit dude. Absolutely no way this profile is legit.

    30 minutes ago you had a massage in 15 minutes…Now you are still posting

    Either you were lying or we are going to see a great explanation of how your massage got cancelled 10 minutes beforehand.

    What I dont understand is how come someone articulate, well spoken isnt driving this issue.
    correct me if I am wrong but the issue is

    1) DK cancelled a full slate of contests after the contest went live.

    we dont need the crazy stories and the needless jabs back and forth. THIS IS A REAL ISSUE. DK fucked up and everyone who was winning got F**Ked. Anyone that was losing…well they could/did benefit.

    My understanding is that the contest went live before the stated contest start time because of a technical error, and then the contest was ultimately canceled before the actual first pitch of any game. If the contest was cancelled after players apart from those in the PPD games began accruing scores, then that’s a more serious issue.

    I’d never ask for money back from a site for a PPD or scratch or anything bc it is what it is playing this game so maybe I have a biased viewpoint…

    But the sites should give 0 refunds/tickets/credits to anyone ever unless it is directly related to an error that with 100% certainty was on their end.

    I can see they are trying to give a good customer experience, but they need to stop with that s#!t. You lose money? Deal with it.

    I was told by 1 person he had accrued fantasy pts. I cannot vouch for any information tho.

    Also, canceling a contest can be done at thier discretion I guess, but this instance by the guidelines they show, it should not have been. So anyone with sour grapes needs to be a squeeky wheel to get something out of it I guess.

    They reserve the right to ban anyone for any reason they choose. She clearly gave them a good reason, you don’t really hear about this happening often.

    Not saying that she should or shouldn’t have been banned. I do find it interesting that this will get someone banned while certain players allegedly collude to cicumvent entry limits and nothing can be done without a sworn affidavit and forensic accounting analysis.

    I’m sure we are all fully aware that Casino’s give their sharks preferential treatment as well, no?

    I don’t actually know to what extent that’s true.

    What I absolutely know without question is that they give their marks preferential treatment.
