    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.

    Since DK is unable or unwilling to enforce its own TOS and since part of the community see rules as a general annoyance to which one should find its way around…. than it would be way more honest to have the mega contests free of “pretend rules”

    So that’s why I asked my question. Apparently (according to multiple users above who are more informed than me), this is not a DK rule but a state rule in some states, so in that case, it’s super tricky to get rid of the rule. They can just choose not to enforce it, but they can’t just get rid of it.

    But acting as a syndicate/colluding IS against the rules.

    Yes I know that. I was pointing out that the 150 entries is not arbitrary and can’t be just waived

    Sam I think won it. The guy with 700 plus was Mark something I believe.

    There’s a decent chance that this prompts some state legislators to revisit banning DFS in states where its still legal. Especially if DK has a tepid conclusion to its “investigation” which unfortunately is what I believe the response will be.
    Not a good thing for any of us.

    Well with all this being said, maybe I’ll get lucky to win the 1 M someday. At least I’ll get a positive thread about me lol (DFSx42 I apologize =p).

    Anyhow, I think I made my points. Collusion does suck, and circumventing rules is unfortunently still happening, but as I said above, it is just super hard to prove and given previous cases have been ignored (brothers, mazwa/raginigphillip), I don’t see this as being any different as everything can be explained. As several other users have pointed out, there are techniques to analyze this, but those are not really transparent so no one even knows what investigation has been done in the past/what will be done in the future. Finally, as others have pointed out, the 150 rule is actually a state rule (not a DK rule), so I guess if you guys are super passionate about this, you can take this up with someone else besides DK. Anyhow with that said, hopefully we are all lucky to win the 1 M someday.

    He wasn’t around yet. I am sure it was Mark something. Somebody will remember.

    SAMENOLE was the first winner. Read his bio on his RG page. Also the link I sent above

    Is Saahil still around?

    Oddly enough the only time I see him in contests is on FD playing soccer. Not joking.

    Unbelievable story. Why would they not just mix up the QB exposure between the two of them? Then they have plausible deniability. Also, there is a Bachelor contestant who is a tout on Awesemo??

    Separately, who even wants to supersize Milly Maker exposure this week? Obviously it worked out for him/her/them (for now), but it’s an even more terrible payout structure than usual.

  • gvn2fly1421

    Honest question here, (1) If the guy would have won, would this even be a big deal? and (2) If this wasn’t made such a big deal by DK and Randone on social media (and of course her name being her actual name and a previous contestant on a reality show) would this be a big deal?

  • msg365

    Answer: No

    Honestly nobody would have put any of it together if Randone didn’t tweet anything

    I’m guessing out of laziness/stupidity. We wouldnt be having this conversation if they actually thought that far ahead.

    I think CANT_STOP_BEASTMODE should be looked into in regards to The Bachelor Draftkings Millionaire collusion. Played 39 Brady lineups, 66 Cousins lineups, and nothing else. Would fit into the puzzle nicely.

    What do you mean?

    Obviously there wouldn’t be publicity and wouldn’t have been noticed if they hadn’t won and if they hadn’t started blabbing on twitter!

    But the fact that IN EVERY BIG CONTEST the TOS is broken and DK is unable or unwilling to enforce it IS A BIG DEAL and cases like this simply bring it to light

    That people brake the TOS, collude and circumvent the max entry limit and DO NOT win first place… doesn’t make it right or doesn’t make it a non issue.

    Is like saying…. if the guy DUI didn’t kill that kid, wouldn’t have been a big deal.

    1. Isnt her husband reality star “famous” as well? So yes, I’d say it still would be a big deal as there are people out there that every week look for cheating connections with these big contests.. The connection between the two would not have been difficult to find. Has nothing to do with a woman winning or quite frankly, with them being “famous”. It would have been found out eventually and the evidence would have been put up on twitter.

    Seems like these 2 have been colluding like this in a lot of sports

    We’ll get the DFS police right on that. Yeah would be shocked if there wasnt a third person involved here.

    Didn’t mean anything by it, just thinking out loud. Wondering how many others do this and have won prior (know about the brothers) but do not have the notoriety? And how the possibility of a couple things going there way and they might have gotten away with it.
