On NFL wild-card weekend (Jan. 4-5), Tolbert finished with the top score in DraftKings’ Millionaire Maker contest.
She bested more than 105,000 entries and thought she had won the $1 million top prize.

Controversy ensued, however, and DraftKings began looking into allegations that Tolbert had worked with her husband, Tanner Tolbert, a known high-volume daily fantasy player, to circumvent entry limits into the contest.
On Saturday, DraftKings announced that it was updating the standings for “several contests” and began notifying impacted customers. Tolbert was no longer listed as the winner of the Millionaire Maker contest. An entry with the username spclk36, who had been in second place behind Tolbert, was now at the top of the leaderboard.
Tolbert was no longer listed and as recently as Tuesday had not received the $1 million prize, according to her husband.
