    Just got a notice that I was in a restricted state when I logged into my account. I’m in Florida. Mistake? Or did I miss some news?

    Hey, I just got this in Idaho as well. I reloaded the page and it was gone. I was freaking out for a second there.

    I wonder if they’re testing out their restriction procedures, either for the states where it should have been banned from the beginning and they just got nailed in the recently-released NY AG court docs, or for the upcoming foregone conclusion of the banning of NY.

    If you’re using any type of mac device, turn on location for DK web page and you’ll be fine.

    I had this happen earlier.

  • robey23

    Yeah once I refreshed it was gone. I had already enabled the location thing as you mentioned Stevie. Might be onto something there Jeff.

  • SouthernShield

    After seeing this thread, I went to DK. I was restricted. I refreshed. No longer restricted.

  • IronMonkey415

    Yes do exactly what stevietpfl said if you are on a MAC.

    I’m In California and almost started to tear up when I saw the word restricted in red next to my name.

    Was just entering some lineups for tonight when above my name on Draftkings it said restricted and wouldn’t let me enter anymore contests but now its back to normal. Anyone else have this happen?

    Just saw this. I had replied to a Schneiderman thread…..I’m in NY though so I thought there was breaking news.

    It’s a location services kind of deal. nothing big. honestly easier on them than having to sift through hundreds of thousands of users who play in NY

  • Georgesteele

    Is it bad that I am postponing going to NYC because I can’t afford to not play DFS? I’ll wait until football season is over.

  • Captkirk07

    its happened to be a few times must me and glitch or something. Dont panic its fine

  • sgaffney

    Happened to me as well but I haven’t been able to get rid of it yet even by allowing the site to know my location, refreshing/reloading a bunch of times and then out of frustration changing my settings to ‘allow all sites to know my location’ but still no luck.

  • Colin408

    Same thing happened to me, refreshed and solved!

    Same for me.

    My account was just restricted for traveling internationally. Draftkings told me you are no longer to play while traveling outside USA at all.

  • eperson911

    I just tried to modify my NBA entries that I created earlier today on DK and I got an alert that my location is restricted. I am in PA. Did something happen to cause DK to block PA that I missed?

  • fpm2015

    refresh the page

  • eperson911

    OK, maybe I jumped the gun on that one. It seems I inadvertently blocked the geo-location in Firefox. Cleared the permission and I am OK now.

    Does anyone know exactly how/what geo-location checks? I assume it’s not simply the location of my IP address, but I don’t know what the difference is.

    Thanks.

    I presume this doesn`t include canada

    Same for me.

    I seem to be ok now, I re started my computer after refreshing a few more times and it eventually seemed to work so hopefully you’re the same. I guess it’s happening to thousands of people in different locations so some places are taking longer than others.

  • HungryHungryHip

    You have to turn on your location settings. I’m in Missouri. I’ve gotten the same thing numerous times over the past month or so whenever I turn off the phone or had to re-install the app(for bug issues.) Doesn’t happen often but has happened a few times.

  • eperson911

    To fix it in FireFox, I clicked the Key icon next to the URL and allowed location.

    I just don’t know if that’s any different than than the IP location check that the site was already doing.

  • ClownShoes

    I use Chrome and went through the steps many times still no luck.
