Commented Ed Andrewes, Owner of EAGC, lead consultant to Resort Digital Gaming: We originally designed FastPick to accommodate every sports fan who wanted to get a slice of the action but didn’t have the time to compete effectively against those predatory DFS sharks.

“Now, in an evolving sports betting landscape, this fast-growing, easy-access take on head-to-head betting fuses the best of sportsbook props and DFS with some towering jackpots. Our players just love taking on the house in a series of one-on-one performance markets, featuring the superstars of US sports.

The US state of Alabama has regulated and legalised daily fantasy sports (DFS) again. The state has imposed a tax on DFS as well. This is a significant move, as the state banned DFS activity about three years ago, forcing companies like FanDuel and DraftKings to shut down their business in the state.

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey signed the DFS bill, which allows the attorney general’s office to oversee and regulate the industry, as well as to ensure compliance with fiscal obligations.

According to the provisions of the bill, bigger operators – those who make over $10 million nationwide – will have to pay a fee of $85,000 each year for their DFS license. Smaller operators need to pay $1,000. There will be a flat 10.5% tax on the gross revenue for all operators.

The legislation considers that DFS is a game of skill, not a game of chance. It means the DFS does not come under the purview of the state’s gambling laws.

The bill’s primary sponsor, Representative Kyle South, felt confident that this was the year for DFS and he was right. He said of DFS, “One thing you can point to are all these major league baseball teams, these professional sports teams are going to an analytics-based system for choosing their players, and that’s all we’re doing here.”

Walt Disney Acquires Stake in DraftKings
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Walt Disney Company has secured a stake in DraftKings, daily fantasy sports-turned-sportsbook, as part of its acquisition of 21st Century Fox.

Disney secured the stake as part of its $71.3 billion purchase of the film and entertainment business. The revelations come just a few weeks after Disney CEO Bob Iger said Disney doesn’t “intend to go into the gambling business.”

“We’ve already done some things that we would integrate it into our programming, but not to the extent that we would be facilitating gambling as an entity. In other words, we’ll provide programming that will, I guess, be designed to enlighten people who are betting on sports. But that’s as far as we would go,” Iger said on a conference.

Disney also intends to use the studio to have a presence at sports betting events that are hosted in Las Vegas. NHL’s Golden Knights and the NFL’s Raiders will move to a stadium just off the Las Vegas Strip in 2020. On the call with analysts, Iger pointed to NFL Sunday Ticket and said there has been “some exploration as to whether there was an opportunity there.”

“I think we all believe that there are opportunities to strengthen our relationship with them,” Iger said.
