That means the former runner-up will take the top prize.
"All customers affected by the updated standings will be notified directly. It is our general policy not to comment further on such matters," DraftKings told USA Today.
It's unknown whether Tolbert, 33, will take legal action against DraftKings. Her Twitter account is now private, although her husband, Tanner Tolbert, still has a public account.
The Tolberts, both of whom gained fame from "The Bachelor" franchise, were accused of unfairly working together to win DraftKings' Milly Maker tournament.
Jade Tolbert publicly celebrated the win when she confirmed she was the top-standing player and noted that Tanner Tolbert, 32, advised her against playing Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf.
The Tolberts told Fox News in a statement before Jade Tolbert lost the prize: "We respect that Draft Kings feels they must do their due diligence in regard to Jade winning their $1 million dollar prize for the fantasy contest for the NFL's wild-card round this weekend. Though we must ponder, would the questions, accusations and curiosity about this win be the same if the winner had been male and someone who wasn't already in the public eye? It is incredibly important for us to establish that Jade’s win is nothing more than pure luck and we are confident that Draft Kings will determine the same."
FOX Business' inquiry to DraftKings and a representative for the Tolberts was not immediately returned.
