Yahoo Daily Fantasy Responsible Gaming Policy

Yahoo Daily Fantasy is committed to providing you with the support you need to play Daily Fantasy responsibly. We offer a range of features and options to help you manage your Daily Fantasy activities.

Deposit limits

Limit the amount of money you spend on Daily Fantasy contests by setting a deposit limit.

Transaction history

Easily access your history of deposits and withdrawals using the steps in our View your Daily Fantasy transaction history help article.

Time-out and Self-exclusion

We offer short term time-out or long term self-exclusion options to help Daily Fantasy users if they feel they need to take a break from playing Daily Fantasy in order to regulate the amount of time or money they spend in it. Once you've submitted your time-out or self-exclusion request, you won't be able to cancel it.

  • Time-out: Lets you decide how long and how often you want to stop playing Daily Fantasy. You'll be prevented from playing Daily Fantasy for the entire period chosen.
  • Self-exclusion: Deactivates your access to Daily Fantasy for a specific period (6-month minimum) and Yahoo will take reasonable steps to prevent your access to Yahoo Sports Daily Fantasy using a new or different Yahoo ID.

Can I open a new Yahoo account to access Daily Fantasy during the self-exclusion period?

No. During the period of your self-exclusion, you must not attempt to access Daily Fantasy or create a new Yahoo ID for the purpose of playing Daily Fantasy.

What happens to Contests that I participated in before I requested a self-exclusion?

Any unsettled Contests will be settled on the result of each Contest. You can contact our Customer Support team to arrange for the payment of your winnings to be made.

Can I close my Yahoo account permanently?

Yes. If you wish to close your Yahoo account, follow the steps outlined in our help article.

Important: This account closure will also deactivate your Yahoo account on any other Yahoo properties including, but not limited to, Yahoo Mail and Yahoo Finance.

Parental controls

We take our responsibility to prevent access by underage users very seriously. We, or third parties acting on our behalf, may carry out appropriate checks to verify your age. If you suspect that someone underage is playing Daily Fantasy, please contact us immediately.

While we do carry out age verification checks, if you're a parent or guardian and use a computer that's shared with a minor, we advise that you install software to appropriately restrict the access of children/minors to age-inappropriate internet content.

Some examples of internet filtering software that you might find useful:

  • Netnanny  - software that protects children from inappropriate content
  • Cybersitter - software that allows parents to select websites to block

You can get additional information on Parental Controls by calling 800-250-1701.

Additional help

You can reach the NCPG via their 24-hour confidential toll-free helpline by calling or texting 1-800-522-4700 or chatting with them at: http://www.ncpgambling.org/help-treatment/chat.
