    I recently had my fanduel account suspended. I got in contact with the account team and they told me it was because i had multiple accounts. Now i am guilty of having multiple accounts, but i have only been using 1 recently and have not been using the others. I am trying to assure them that i would like to keep using my 1 account that i have been using for about 3 weeks now, but their response time isnt exactly speedy. I still have money i have deposited from my bank in this account so i would really like to keep using this account. Pretty sure they forfeited my wins that i obtained from the NFL last night, but i am not too worried about that. I just want my account back re-opened!

    Man.. This sucks. I’ve been playing on FanDuel for so long. I get that I broke a rule, but I’ve never profited big on FD and I definitely don’t have multiple accounts to cheat. I didn’t even remember that I had a another one. Pretty shitty.

    What’s the purpose of multiple accounts in DFS? I don’t see the advantage unless you want to enter 1000 entires into one event.

    The ability to have multiple entries in single entry contests.

    Sites like RotoGrinders offer their premium subscriptions for free to new users who sign up under their link. Suppose you’ve been wanting RotoGrinders NBA incentives, but you don’t want to pay. You already play at FanDuel but if you create another account you can use the RG link and get a deposit bonus plus RG incentives for free.

    In that situation FanDuel is paying RotoGrinders and you to re-acquire a customer they already had.

    There’s also the scenario where you can use your first account to refer your second account in order to collect referral money on your own play.

    Last but not least, is people who wish to start a new account in order to remain undetected by others. If multiple accounts were allowed high-volume pros like Saahil, Condia, etc would constantly create new handles in order to get H2Hs action from people unaware that they are playing some of the best players in the game.

    Good news for anyone that truly made a mistake. After a week of investigations, FanDuel came to the conclusion that it was clear I did not use multiple accounts for any sort of competitive advantage. Therefore, they closed the other account in my name (that I don’t even know about), and opened up my “real” account.

    Honestly, super impressed by FanDuel and I’m glad I stayed calm about everything. They took the time they needed and made right by me. And vice versa, I understand why I was suspended & if there were multiple accounts linked to my name then it’s all in fairness.

    So to anyone who feels they don’t deserve to be suspended, be patient. FanDuel is clearly doing their due diligence to simply make the game fair for everyone.

    So stoked right now.

    Thanks FanDuel.
