Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are common. Essentially, a third-party sends thousands of requests per second to a web server in an attempt to overload it with traffic and cause performance issues.

Sportsbooks and websites in general which receive large amounts of traffic are sometimes the recipient of these issues, but during the course of blocking these requests real players can experience delays until all normal traffic is filtered from rogue addresses. DDoS does not interfere with account credentials or security.
