The time seems right to stop dancing around pretending that the UIGEA was a stay out of jail free card under existing State gambling laws. Get to lobbying for legislation at the State level and at the federal level, to amend PASPA to provide for real States' Rights regarding sportsbetting and DFS.

Keep in mind the status of these same companies in the UK, where they received real money gaming licenses. The NFL should man up and admit its fan base LOVES to gamble on its games.
If you read the NFL commissioner's comments I don't think they will ever come out publicly for full scale sports betting. He will not even publicly support the dfs sites even though some of his owners have investments in the sites. NBA may actually support and mlb does have some partnerships with Dfs.

The NFL commissioner is a hypocrite. He pretends publicly the game is above gambling but it benefits tremendously from it. The NFL is a product that is getting worse and worse because of rule changes that needed to be made for player safety but it's rating keep going up due to gambling and fantasy.

I've seen it come on for a few seconds and then go away. I see little software bugs a lot with DK, but overall, considering what's being asked of the software, I'm surprised its not crashing all the time. Have no idea what to tell you about your situation except good luck with it.

Re: DFS Industry Discussion Thread

So if that's the case for you. Someone who is just visiting Nevada should be able to play there if you can't play visiting some where else

Why doesn't it work like online poker? I can play online when I'm in Nevada. You should be able to play DFS when in a state they allow.

Intermittently on DK when I try to enter contests I get the "your account is in a restricted state" error. Then I refresh and it works again.

99.99998% sure they would NOT know "that".

My guess is that something else flagged you as a Nevadan seeking to access their games.

.... maybe they flew a black helicopter over your house to verify your IP location ?

+1 VPN not working in NV for DK/FD, while travelling last week was able to play in an allowable state but cannot even access website while in NV, as a bonus I get multiple emails everyday from DK/FD reminding me I have a balance and wouldn't I like to play this weekend, which isn't annoying at all.

Yeah. Who've thought anything could go wrong when you use "computer-generated winning numbers".
