The History of Daily Fantasy Sports Betting
Betting on daily fantasy sports is a relatively new phenomenon. The game itself has been around for years, but it wasn’t until the past few years that states began to seriously consider legalizing and regulating it.
The first state to pass legislation specifically legalizing and regulating daily fantasy sports was Nevada, in the year 2016.Since then, a handful of other states have followed suit. These include Arkansas, Colorado, Indiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.
The process by which these states have legalized and regulated daily fantasy sports betting has varied from state to state. In some cases, such as Nevada and Pennsylvania, the legislature passed a bill specifically authorizing and regulating the activity. In other cases, such as Colorado and Indiana, the activity was authorized by a ballot measure put forth to the voters of the state.
The regulation of daily fantasy sports betting has been overseen by a variety of different entities in different states. In some cases, such as Nevada, it is overseen by the existing gaming commission. In other cases, such as Pennsylvania and Tennessee, it is overseen by a newly created commission or board specifically tasked with regulating this activity.
The landscape of daily fantasy sports betting continues to evolve as more states consider legalization and regulation of this activity. It remains to be seen how this will progress in the future.
The States that Currently Allow Daily Fantasy Sports Betting
The legal landscape of daily fantasy sports (DFS) has been changing rapidly over the past few years. While the activity was once considered to be illegal gambling, many states have now legalized and regulated it. As of 2019, there are 19 states plus Washington D.C. that have passed laws specifically legalizing and regulating DFS.
In addition to the 19 states that have explicitly legalized DFS, there are several others that have passed laws that could be interpreted to allow it. For example, Tennessee passed a law in 2016 that could be interpreted to allow DFS, but the law is currently being challenged in court.
The following states have passed laws explicitly legalizing and regulating DFS:
