Yeah, I know. The mobile app worked fine up until my account got restricted. If they don't unblock my account I won't be too burned up since I was playing with house money anyway.

Gotcha. All those geolocation things suck. So I started using app only. Especially since for work I always have a VPN on.

I would try just emailing them. Customer Service is pretty top notch for these companies, shockingly.

I really am well on my way to losing all eight of those bets. I still have a few pending on the national championship Monday, and I put one on the Bengals winning the superbowl. But I’m otherwise 0-4. I keep trying to hit basketball parlays. I almost had one last night, I missed on Jrue Holiday getting the over on 16 points which he’s done ten out of the last eleven fucking games. But apparently he was a game time decision minutes restriction for being sick. Sweet. 

At least I haven’t lost any actual money and don’t intend to. Guys like me have no business betting apparently.

Follow whatever book you use. They post any and all injury/sickness/whatever up to a few days in advance.

It was definitely self-inflicted. I tried on my desktop and laptop several times and geolocation flat out would not work. As a last-ditch effort, I spun up a generic Windows 10 virtual machine which got me restricted because Virtualbox is a prohibited app.


I should've just left it alone and continued using the app on my phone.


I suspect the root problem is that my ISP got bought out in recent memory. They've been juggling shit around so it's tough to get an accurate location reading for me.


I opened a ticket on Monday night and they've been slow to respond. I suspect they're slammed with other inquiries over the Bengals/Bills fiasco.

Anyone have any good parlays for the golf Majors? Saw a couple interesting ones with huge payouts if you hit. Obviously, nearly impossible - but some pretty serious coin if you hit lol

Nope. But I bet golf almost weekly. Ill post my stuff on here and hopefully we get more traction with it legal in Ohio. QO does a decent amount but I think thats mostly pools around the big tournaments. You will quickly find that I am drawn to Morikawa almost every time he tees it up haha

  • Mori - 22/1
  • Vik - 23/1
  • Deki - 38/1
  • Poston T10 - +440
  • Harmon T5 - +550
  • Mori T10 - +130
  • Mori over Im H2H - +110

Had a great night tonight. Put about $300 of free bets across various sites on Purdue +1.5. Had a parlay with Purdue Moneyline and Boston -2.5 and a $50 on the caps to beat the bluejackets by 2. Hit on everything.

Update-- this has absolutely not been the case with Draft Kings thus far:

I submited a ticket saying that my account is currently in a restricted status because of the geolocation app. I admit that I probably caused my own problem by attempting to use it on a virtual machine and have since removed everything. I also mention that I have given up on accessing via computer and just want the restriction lifted so I can bet on my phone.

Two days later the support person replies with a copied/pasted KB article telling me to remove the offending software (despite me already detailing this in my orginal request). I reply to him that I have already done that.

18 hours pass. The support person replies with a second, unrelated copied/pasted KB article and then immediately marks the ticket as resolved.

I opened a second ticket saying that my first ticket was unresolved and that my account was still restricted. A different guy grabbed it, apologized for the hiccup, and said he had forwarded my ticket to another section for review. However, I can tell on their support site my ticket is still assigned to him with the problem description being Deposit Limit Increase and the status of ticket as 'Awaiting your reply'.


I don't expect this to get resolved.

Damn that sucks. I havent had any issues with them when I have had issues. Ive even gotten my money back before games start after a late injury happens.

After I wrote my post up, I decided to just try and withdraw the $228 I earned playing with the free bets and it processed immediately and went into my Paypal account.


If DK's support staff were competent, they would've fixed the problem and I would've ultimately pissed my balance away on careless bets.


Instead I'll just walk away with $228 worth of house money. Fuck em.

The love hate with golf. Entertainment for 4 straight days, but you can see the finish line only for it to crash and burn. 

Loooong way to go.

I finally signed up on FanDuel and got a lot of the free bet money. Did $50 on the Ohio boost bet for a single point scored in the Bengals game.

I look forward to joining you all in your degeneracy.

Jags were plus money ALL night after the early 10-0 hole. And it always seemed they were gonna pull it out. I even got -105 on +4.5. 

Need Chubb to hit 71 yards today and Morikawa to hold on (plus Poston and Harmon go low) and it will be by far my best week of betting in terms of number of wins.

Like I said…

I’ll still be profitable with his T-10 and over Im prop. But boy oh boy that could’ve been a huge week. Sigh.

That blows. Rahm was T5 for me, and kicking myself for not going all in on him now but oh well.


I hopped on your Chubb bet and that was profitable.


Got A. Rodgers and A. Jones for GB going over 200 passing yards and 40 rushing yards at right now.

It is tough. One guy I follow is really into the NHL and does a lot of "in regulation" lines. Likes Buffalo a lot tonight.

Have to invest enough initially to lose a bunch. Otherwise, you just chase bets trying to get ahead. If you deposit $100, you will never win. I usually deposit $500, as that is plenty to work with for a while. And any morning I wake up, I withdraw it back down to $500. I havent tracked it too closely, but feel that keeps me closer to even than if I waited until I was up $500 or something.
