A comparison can be drawn with Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) companies which have been working to ensure the continued legality of their business. A very key difference with our platform and service is you are the player and how well you play within the game will determine your success, as compared to choosing a lineup of players who will compete in a contest which you cannot directly influence.
With DFS, as they fight their legal battles, the key aspect of each ruling is the determination as a “game of skill”.
In the United States, the legality of DFS has been determined on a state-by-state basis based on local gambling laws and other rulings. The federal Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIEGA) contains language dictating that fantasy sports are not considered an unlawful wager under the act; however, the act only prohibits the electronic transfer of funds from unlawful gambling as defined under state laws.
