[Updated] PrizePicks down, not working, or crashing? You’re not alone

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on Jan. 20, 2023) follows:

PrizePicks is a popular ‘Daily Fantasy Sports’ service that allows users to participate in multi-sport fantasy leagues.

Unlike other Fantasy services, PrizePicks allows you to wager real money. So, it is quite important that its servers are running correctly so that everyone can set their teams at any time.


Unfortunately, currently the PrizePicks servers are in the middle of an outage, so the service is down or not working for many, also causing a crash in the app.

PrizePicks down, not working, or crashing

According to multiple reports, the Fantasy Sports platform is currently inaccessible to its users. This makes them unable to login to their accounts to tweak their lineups before key games, check balance, etc.


I’m gonna be pretty upset if I hit on the players I picked and then all of a sudden @PrizePicks goes down 🤦‍♂️

Y’all fumbled big time.. app goes down during time for the promo.. really?

In addition to being unable to access their PrizePicks accounts, users are reporting a crashing issue in the app as well.


PrizePicks giving us a “Free Square” then crashing then servers right away

@PrizePicks thanks for the free square I got a total of 0 entries due to your trash app crashing thanks! 😁

Considering that the platform allows real money betting, an outage is especially serious as it can mean losing the entire balance of users who were unable to tweak their teams before a match.

Also, the outage started on the same day that the company was giving ‘free squares’, which allow for additional entries, but no one has been able to take advantage of them.


There is still no official acknowledgment of the issue from the PrizePicks team. We will update this story as events unfold.
