New York State is back On-Line for Daily Fantasy……

NEW YORK is now open for Daily Fantasy…..

The NY State Gaming commission has approved and gave the go ahead for DraftKings and Fan Duel to start accepting Fantasy Players from NY State.

Each site had to show exactly what contests they would be offering, show compliance for customer fund safety and how they would monitor where players are located when they are playing on the site.

In total, the 4 Big Players: DraftKings, Fan Duel, Fantasy Draft and Yahoo have been awarded Temporary Daily Fantasy Operating Permits and all expect the formal licensing process to be completed without issue.

That Means all New Yorker’s can reload, research and get ready for the 2016 NFL Fantasy Season which will be starting in just a couple of weeks.

Quote from NYSGC:

The Commission has completed a legally required thorough review of the temporary permit applications from these five companies, ensuring required consumer protections, player safeguards and advertising restrictions are in place.

“As the newly enacted law requires, the Commission regulates all aspects of interactive fantasy sports, including ensuring the operators put important consumer protections in place,” said Commission Executive Director Robert Williams. “While the Commission continues work on formal regulations for these games, these temporary permits get companies up and running in New York State while assuring resident players that safeguards are in place.”

Comments from DraftKings CEO Jason Roberts:

“MLB pennant races are heating up, an exciting NFL season is just around the corner and we are thrilled to be able to bring DraftKings back to millions of New York sports fans. We thank the New York State Gaming Commission for being thorough and expedient in approving the return of fantasy sports to New York.  We are proud to be a leading sports-tech and entertainment company that delivers an unparalleled fantasy sports experience, with state of the art technology and a mission to bring fans closer to the sports they love than they ever thought possible.
