Fantasy Sports Games are Legal Again in New York
You no longer face the threat of a criminal charge for trading Eli Manning. Fantasy Sports is again legal in New York State.
Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed a law allowing and regulating daily fantasy sports in the State immediately.
Fanduel and Draftkings were among sites shut down this spring by the Attorney General, who claimed they were illegal gambling operations.
The popular sites claimed fantasy sports was a game of skill and not a game of chance.
The legislation signed by the Governor specifically calls the contests games of skill, clearing up the issue.
