    First is was Nevada, now the possibility of Pennsylvania, Florida, and Illinois. Is this eventually gonna hit all states? I myself live in Tennessee and can easily drive 3 hours to a casino and lose way more than I ever do on DFS, but I like DFS better. This is getting crazy.

    All dfs players just move to Ohio. We don’t even have laws on online gambling. and legislature would have to push through a bill to outlaw. so were safe for now.

    And its burning out of control!! how did this happen????????

    I know, here I am waiting on the NBA to start, only sport I really care about and boom! the world blows up and now I’m doubting there will even be a game available to play. All the people, this site, all the time invested, more than likely just poof! gone.

    I am curious…. where does it stop? Based on the definition in Illinois, that also means that we can’t enter contests on sites like ESPN for season long fantasy, streak for cash, etc.

    The NFL obviously has a vested interest in the future of DFS.

    Any chance we can get Roger Goodell to have an “independent” investigation of daily fantasy sports?

    I live in Florida, should I just go all in this weekend or do I have any chance to play long term anymore?

    If Florida goes the whole thing is done so I wouldn’t worry about it more than anyone else

    They are not losing much from the states its not allowed in, but if florida, or penn banned dfs it could get ugly.

    Florida, Illinois and Pennsylvania almost 15% of US population. Not good.

    Is the Illinois verdict already in? I thought it was just proposed today

    Nothing is in except Nevada and a lot of misinformed trolls

    My point was that 3 states totaling 15% of the population even considering a ban is not good.

    Regulation and ban are not the same thing

    Even Nevada is merely asking them to get a gambling license

    this is awful. those of us that came from the online poker world have seen this movie before. its a shame, and I really feel for those of you doing this for a living. I’ve been in your shoes, prepare properly and get your ducks in a row and keep a min balance. I had 92k stuck on full tilt for years. don’t make my mistake just my advise. we don’t truly know the liquidity of FD and dks pay line and I’m not certain they can handle a run on the banks.

    as a Florida resident this is disgusting and I will make sure not a dime of my money EVER goes to a casino interest again in any of these states.

  • qatman

    No idea, but I’ve seen this rodeo before in other aspects of life. I’m withdrawing all but a bit on each site until this all clears up and will just reduce action greatly. Of course there are no guarantees on what will happen but why take a chance.

    Then again the only reason I play DFS is that sports betting is illegal. When/if that is changed, I doubt I’ll ever play DFS again.

  • Bighodges93

    I keep minimum money on the sites anyhow since the big poker debacle. I can almost see the sites being told to halt all action soon, possibly before NBA tips off. Domino affect is in full swing it appears.

    I don’t see how they can hold your money without giving an opportunity to withdraw it. It’s been legal to play since the beginning and then out of the blue it’s banned?

    (NOT SAYING THIS IS ACTUALLY THE CASE)

    The issue would not be whether they are allowed to pay you but whether they have enough (liquid) funds to process all requested withdrawals in a timely fashion. I have no reason to believe this is not the case, but personally I agree with electrichaz3 and am not willing to risk much.

    Since it hasn’t been considered gambling they wouldn’t need to.

  • electrichaz3

    they cannot hold the money and say haha I’m not paying any of you! point is you never know. i always played on sstars 75% of the time and tilt 25%. I knew that in pokerstars case, if they were to ever halt operation and shut down my money was safe in had an RSA security token and everything.their policy was to segregate funds for players into their accounts, in accordance being able to accommodate any cash out request at any time regardless of any outside factors. I made the false assumption that full tilt also did the same. they did not have liquid funds, eventually the govt stepped in and played back most of our cash.

    we do not know what dk and FD structures look like we don’t know if they are liquid. So use common sense. keep only what you need and what you won’t mind missing for a while.

    The reason why the money was seized and held was because it was considered unlawful gambling when the shut down took place. DFS hasn’t been characterized like that.

    there is nothing unlawful about DFS – everyone pays their taxes. maxDalury probably paid over 500K of taxes on his winnings, all was fair.

    What is considered “unlawful” to begin with?
