    Hey guys,

    New here. Does anyone have any experience with FantasyAces and their withdrawal times? I requested a $600 payout to PayPal 7 days ago and still have not received it. Their website says 24-48 hours.

    I would assume these smaller sites would have a heavier focus on customer service, which is why I chose FantasyAces (along with the smaller GPP games). Apparently not?

    MOD NOTE: FANTASYDRAFT PULLS OUT OF ACES DEAL, 1/30: In an official statement from FantasyDraft, the company has said “Unfortunately, because of issues identified during our due diligence, we are unable to purchase the assets of Fantasy Aces. We will continue to provide the best possible daily fantasy experience for our users, and are committed as always to putting our Players First.” We’ll post any additional news as it’s confirmed.

    MOD NOTE (Feb 1, 1:53 AM EST): FANTASY ACES HAS FILED FOR BANKRUPTCY Initially reported here.

    MOD NOTE (Feb 13, 8:40 PM EST): HUGE NEWS VIA FANTASY DRAFT, REIMBURSING FANTASY ACES PLAYERS Initially reported here.

    FANTASY ACES HAS FILED FOR BANKRUPTCY

  • paine

    Fantasy Aces has $2,419.86 is their players bank account, and $118.52 in operating account. $1,301,907.98 in various user accounts.

    I’m ashamed to have ever worked for Tom, Trent, Bryan, and whoever else knew about this.

    And it begins…… ONCE AGAIN.

    Why can’t we go ONE YEAR without a DFS scandal? I really hope this isn’t the end guys……

    To those who had money on the site, my condolences. Hang in there and don’t lose hope.

    What a shame.

    And the 2k of Fantasy Aces stock I bought in the summer just went up in flames.

  • tnib

    fucking disaster….my bankroll was on Aces….lucky I put $50 on Fantasy Draft when I learned of the “buyout”. That’s up to $250 now….completely starting over.

    Well there’s a nice gut punch to end the night.

    I thought you are a sharp player. You won all the monopoly money in NBA and NHL that last night. You must be out a bit too.

    Well, I’ll definitely miss aces. But geez there are some super original sharps in this thread that I’ve looked up to for a long time. Rayofhope is here for goodness sake. We need some kind of think tank or something, I don’t know.

    I want to vomit. They’ve owed us money for a while, which is not uncommon for big or small companies in this industry over the last year. Every time I’ve talked to them they were on the verge of some big deal, and now this. I had a lot of misplaced trust in these guys, especially Tom, and I should have drilled into their actual situation a lot more.

  • JimKronlund

    What could have anyone done differently. They were not paying out in December 2016. It looks like they had no intention in honouring any debts. All they would do is verbally dodge it until chapter 7 came out. Maybe a lawsuit prior to chapter 7 would put you closer up the line of creditors, but I am not sure about that.

    You said you were hearing rumblings at the FSTA conference, and thet RG itself was owed money? RG should have been the ones to bring this to the forefront of the DFS community. You are our voice and our biggest advocate………right?

    I reached out to Aces after hearing rumors at the conference and was told an announcement was coming soon, and then they announced the FantasyDraft acquisition. My mistake was made in trusting them beforehand and not digging in deeper earlier.

    One thing that bothered me and made me slightly suspicious of the site was the player point system. For over a year they didn’t do what they said on the site and convert them to something that could be used to play in money contests. They were useless. The wins bonus they were paying to those of us who already winning and had some coin at the end of the month was nice but was that a “bet” made by them? I repeatedly sent them e-mails asking when they would make good on the player points….every freakin’ month. I had a chat with Bryan. And, what do you know….they finally released the player points to play games with entry fees on shortly before this happened. It cost them nothing to finally do it. This all stinks to high hell. The amount that they paid themselves over the past year….that should cover how much they owe the players. My head is spinning.

    Hello All. Yes you are correct with the pending news. We cannot release any info yet but it is good news. This has caused a slow down in several areas and we apologize. Stay tuned.

    Filing for Bankruptcy 7 is good news??? Why don’t you have the balls to come on here and come clean with all of us who you owe money?? Just be decent human beings.

    When that was posted, I think it is safe to assume that they were referring to FantasyDraft acquiring FantasyAces as the “good news”.

    Edit: To clarify, I believe Aces should have issued a statement immediately after they found out that the deal was no longer going through, but that’s not what my post above that I’m quoting was about. I believe that Aces thought FantasyDraft acquiring them was “good news” at the time they made the above mentioned ‘forum post’. (which was almost 1 week ago now, from the time of my posting this now)

    Thanks for giving us misinformation at every turn. The individuals running FantasyAces committed fraud and theft, I hope you get what is coming to you………a cold and dark jail cell!

    Curious what FantasyDraft discovered… surely Aces wasn’t trying to sneak it past them that they only had $3500 in cash.

  • ItzJamesFTW

    Unreal.

    Aces played RG, they played their userbase, they played the FSTA, they played sharps, they played us all.

    I was always a big Aces fan as were 95% of people in this thread. And yes, because some people feel the need to keep bringing it up, I was a big defender of them in the past, but again, that’s based off of my own personal experiences with them. No one KNEW that this would be the outcome and there was nothing to predict this. (And because someone will be like “I knew it would happen!” you didn’t, just shut up)

    So fuck you FantasyAces.

    Have you checked their bottom line the last 5 years?
    Nothing to predict it?
