    I came here with popcorn in hand but was pretty shocked to find no discussion of it.

    Worst part about it is that DK has an obvious case of cheating and yet promotes the win.

    This is just horrible. This tweet here sums it perfectly.

    Vote with your wallets folks. Boycott Draft Kings. We can’t just continue to sit back, watch this and continue paying rake when there’s so many other options out there.

    Definitely not expecting them to make an announcement, but surely someone who knows Jade or her man would know if her funds are out of DRAFT KINGS “ purgatory” as was mentioned earlier.

    Just would like to know if she finally got access to them. I’m sure the brains behind the operation wants his cut!

    My guess is they will be paid and told not to comment on it. It definitely wouldn’t be smart for them to cause a further controversy by going public with anything.

    The worst part of this controversy is it chased the DraftKings rep off the RG forum as he hasn’t been around the last 3 weeks to answer other questions like why they changed the PGA achievement rules after I entered a bunch on contests at the TOC.

    Rovell just tweeted that Roper is no longer the winner and they updated the standings.

    Lol the DK statement is stupid.

    So, they didn’t win. And immediately after they were informed, the friendship with Randone died a fiery death.

    I got an email from DK this morning saying that as a result of updated standings in various contests in November/December 2019, I’m getting an extra $70 added to my account. None of those contests were the Week18 MM (and too bad for me, they didn’t make a late scoring change to the week where I lost the MM by 0.4 points). I wonder if it’s a result of disqualifying these same people from prior contests.

    So like the reply, do we think they got paid a portion or none at all?

    We should know for sure as if they got nothing there would be no way Jade & Tanner don’t file their own lawsuit in court as they already have a lawyer representing them. If they do nothing and just walk away quietly I am guessing they had to get something in exchange for their silence. No one would just leave a million go without a fight.

    Just got off the plane and I got an email from DK notifying me they put a bunch of money in my account. The explanation was that they adjusted some Milly Maker NFL contests on 11/17 and 11/24 ??? At first I thought it was something more recent from The Bachelorette – Milly scandal. Pretty weird to get a bunch of money back to November.

    Anyone else get an email ?

    I’ll look in the other RG threads later but just saw this.

    they took the mill away from the bachelor dude. and maybe removed his previous contest 300 entries. kinda shocking imho but good on dk finally.

    What is a bunch of money? Do you only get the email if you cashed that week and they just move you up the standings? How do you move up that much to make a lot of money since most times I see payouts are like in blocks of thousands of places.

    I didn’t get an email, but definitely something is happening because when looking at recent contests in my DK phone app all the MM I played into this season are showing instead of just the last 7 days contests…. plus the “in the past 7 days you’ve won” amount is far higher than it should be…. however no email and no $$ in my account yet

    I also have not gotten any email. It would nice if they can clarify exactly what they did with the payouts. Like for example did they just rerun the entire contest without their entries?

    Does this apply to the non Millionaire Contests they participated on? Best result was a Slant 9 dollar contest this year so I hope they retroactively do it.

    I moved up from just below the cash line to just above the cash line in 2 milly makers and 1 Slant contest. I moved up 78, 72 and 46 places, respectively. That seems consistent to me with 300 entries being tossed out/disqualified and everyone else moving up accordingly (i.e. 78 of 300 entries cashed in the one contest, and so on).

    My sense from this is that DK tried to do the right thing here, since if their goal was just to reach a settlement with Jade + Tanner and the second place guy in the Week 18 Milly Maker, they wouldn’t have any need or incentive to go back and DQ Jade + Tanner from prior contests and make a bunch of back payments to other people who moved up in the standings, effectively resulting in a retroactive overlay of those contests.

    Oh ok I see. Did you do a lot of entries per week? I guess for a 4-5 entry type of guy it might not have that much effect since it’s unlikely to be on a border with so few entries.

    Yeah, I had 100+ in each of those three and I agree with you. If it’s the case that Jade + Tanner’s 300 lineups got tossed, relatively few people from each contest would be getting the email (maybe 40-75 out of ~175,000 entrants who passed the cash line, plus a few more who moved up from one cash tier to the next)

    Same. The Christmas day NBA Milly Maker is in my recent too, which is interesting. I guess this isn’t just NFL specific.

    Sadly, I’m so awful at NFL, that I don’t believe any adjustment in standings is going to be bringing me any extra money, since I didn’t get an e-mail, yet my currently won is higher, like yours, because they’re showing those contests in my recent stuff even if my payouts won’t be adjusted.

  • madmanjayWV

    Where did DK release its statement @ btw?

    Is it nothing more than what’s in the Darren Rovell tweet?

    Also, did the poor sap in 2nd place for the MM that week get the difference of what he should’ve won?

    At least brothers and friends can still work together :)

  • Penguin3200

    Same for me with several milly makers and the nba one showing up in my pst 7 days. Now waiting for email and balance change………grabs popcorn.

    they still didn’t overlay

    almost all (if not all) the milly makers filled entirely so what you got was some reduced rake. Maybe 10% rake rather than 16% depending on how exactly this was handled (did Tanner keep the winnings from past milly makers and they paid him as well as the people moving up, or did they simply refund all his entry fees and make it so he broke even in past milly makers?).

    I think I only played one or two milly makers and I guess I didn’t get anything back.

    I have no idea how much I should get back but something for sure:

    I played almost all mm (two weeks only 1-3 lineups as I focused on the slant)
    I maxed the $10 one and played a lot of lineups in several
    It’s impossible than in the maxed ones you wouldn’t have a bubbled out entry now cashing or one cashing at a higher $ amount

    I am guessing the volume of the work is such that it will take them a while to get to everyone

    Sorry, it was almost $200 which is a “bunch” more than the usually DK emails telling me I won $4 in a promo or something similar but I was playing 30-40 Milly lineups each week for most of the season so I’m guessing I had a few lineups be just outside the next pay level and moved up from $40, $50 and $75 wins and turned into a $50, $60 and $100 a few times.

    I’m guessing the guy who finished 2nd (and sued DK) also got an email saying he got more money but his said they put $900K more in his account !!

    It’s also possible that you could play all year and not get any more money as the key is you had to finish behind one (or more) of their lineups and be close enough to the next pay level to move up.

    Is definitely possible.
    I only checked 3 contests comparing the RG DBResults which aren’t updated vs the results in my recent history that just showed up updated by DK…. based on just those 3 contests all my entries moved up. Some of them surprisingly little, kind of shocking… (guessing the guy wasn’t really good with his 300 entries) and based again on this very small sample DK would owe me a whopping 50 cents from the NBA Chrismas milly… all the other entries moved up but not enough to cash more
