    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.

    DK had lots of overlay in many different contests due to their insanely top heavy payouts. Many people are getting tired of the 25-40% to first place and 20% or less are mini cashing only 1.5X. If DK isn’t careful only the pros and/or cheaters will be left to play on their site.

    This….

    Just dont give your money to them, plain and simple.

    you sure, maybe DFSx42 or blenderhd will convince you.

    WTF?

    I was the one calling for a DK boycott due to the burrito brothers blatant TOS violations in the first place.

    Stop trying to generate an argument that doesn’t even exist. I’m the OP of this thread ffs.

    Bro’s, the lineup basically wrote itself this weekend cause of the poor pricing… The sites need to do a better job. I do not collude with anybody and I landed on that lineup…

    Oops, landed on the wrong “shady part of the industry” thread…

    I have a related question that I’ve always wondered. If someone does get caught cheating what happens to the winnings? Let’s say that I sign my wife up for an account. I’m blatant about it and even use my credit card and enter the lineups on my cell phone. I enter a beginner only contest with the “new” account and take down $3000. DK catches me red handed and bans my account. What do they do with the money I won? Shouldn’t it go to whoever would have won? Has this ever happened? I’ve never heard a single person say they were later contacted by DK because they won some additional money. So the only logical answers are 1.) DK just keeps the money 2.) No one has ever been caught?

    I think the real answer is 3) DK looks the other way as they don’t want to upset the apple cart that is the large team players who enter $250,000+ a day. They will never be transparent on this issue but I am guessing no one has ever had winnings taken away for collusion. The worst penalty ever given is more than likely getting your account shut down after the fact so you can’t do it again.

    Jade Roper Tolbert (Winner of the Milly) tweeted on August 28, 2017 – “I get fantasy football, but I don’t get why guys have to be in 97282913 different leagues. @ttolbert05” then added the eyes. Nothing to see here folks…

  • generosorizzo18

    I bet you neither one of them knows the difference between a football and a baseball but when u give them 300 shots at it anything can happen!

    DraftKings seems to have deleted the “rose” tweet. Why would they do that if they didn’t see anything wrong? Times like these when I’m glad that I’m too cheap to play the MM…

    I guess I should have added a third option where the person gets paid and then banned. I just can’t see DK let that happen. Honestly, every now and then you will see a post on this site where a person hits a huge win and they are having trouble getting paid so they start a public post hoping to add some pressure. We usually don’t see the results of those threads though. It just doesn’t seem legal that the player would forfeit the winnings and the site just keeps it but again I’ve never heard of a single person getting additional winnings because someone above them had to forfeit those winnings.

    Yeah I bet they thought they were all smart and counting their money from all the women that are gonna join dk. Bet they had some marketing team working on the ads with this porn/reality “star” already in the works today. Hell they might even still do it despite all the evidence her and her husband cheated by COLLUDING.

    You WILL start seeing class action lawsuits or at the very least, you’re going to start seeing people contact their state attorney’s offices. Enough is enough.

    Has anyone done the digging on how much play the wife’s account gets on a regular basis? Because unless this is unusual, then nothing can be done if she signed up on her own and has proper credentials.

    I guess my question is why does DK even have a rule regarding skirting the 150max limit ie “Colluding with any other individual(s) or engaging in any type of syndicate play” if they think it’s impossible to enforce? Just allow collusion and be done with it. Either that or actually enforce their own rules.

    Up until a few minutes ago when dk evidently deleted their “rose” tweet, they saw it as a marketing opportunity.

  • hammer74

    Yep this trumps ethangate by a mile plus all other scandals over the years

    Tweet wasn’t deleted, just not pinned anymore

    Eh I wouldnt go that far….yet. I would say #1 ethangate , #2 changing the rules to accommodate cheaters , then what happened yesterday as #3. Of course that could very easily change within hours as it gets legs bc this potentially could reach a much wider audience than just the dfs/gambling world. So ultimately I think you’re going to be correct.

    Due to the controversy we will pretend to be investigating. Then after a few days pass and interest dies down we will release a nonsense statement.

    They will say the results of the investigation are private and please stop talking about it so we can fill next week’s Milly Maker.

    It’ll be really interesting to follow this. There have been plenty of accusations over the years of wrongdoing/cheating what-have-you, but they’ve largely been contained within the DFS community. Mainstream media is all over this.

  • EandE

    I know this might be a hot taek here, but shouldn’t we let this one slide. Yes, I understand the idea that side stepping the 150 max entry rule is bad. But doesn’t all the positive mainstream publicity outweigh it in this case? Do we really want a cheating scandal to be grabbed by the media, and then politicians? I’d much rather a positive spin and new players coming in.

    Lets keep our complaining inside the RG forums, and off the twitter machine.

    Lol I’m trolling you.

    And no btw we all posted THESE POSTS well before you posted yours in the NFL thread. Notice the timing of your OP post is “2 hours” (today), but my post was yesterday.

    That’s why I’ve got the best prediction models in the industry =p.

    On this actual topic, I already discussed it a lot of times, but there’s really nothing anyone can do.

    Too late for to keep it off twitter. Look, this is just about as blatant of a case as you are going to get. If DK does nothing about this, just get rid of the 150 max rule and allow unlimited entry (of course I“d imagine some state laws would have to change).
