    Not that big of deal, but just another bump in the DFS road.

    Fanduel is not taking Texas entries either. This sucks!!

    I got the same email. Unreal, all the AG did was offer an OPINION. Regarding Fanduel, I am in TX and can still enter consts there. I haven’t gotten an email from them saying that we can’t.. I used to play on FantasyDraft but quit after they stopped allowing Illinois people to enter. I just find it unacceptable to stop taking entries because the AG offers an opinion, which doesn’t really change anything. I refuse to support sites with that mindset.

    My guess is the smaller sites are more or less being forced to suspend operations due to directives from payment processors . This wont help the cause for anyone :

    Fantasydraft pulled out of Vermont last week. Fanduel and Draftkings are still OK.

    I loved playing on Fantasy Draft. I have nothing bad to say about them as it really isn’t their choice to pull out of these states. Like it has been said before it all has to do with their payment processors, the people that actually handle the entry fees and pay outs, that are causing this to happen.

    FanastyHub had an issue with Paypal and found alternates, they used Dwolla. If there’s a will there’s a way. They could find alternate payment processors if they really wanted..
