Our Products Are Legal In All Jurisdictions.
The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (“UIGEA”), the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (“PASPA”), the Wire Act, and the federal Prohibition on Illegal Gambling all address “betting or wagering” on sporting events. The UIGEA, however, contains a specific exemption for fantasy sports contests fulfilling certain conditions:
Participants pay a one-time, non-refundable entry fee in exchange for the experience of participating in the Promotion.
All prizes and awards offered to winning participants must be established and made known to the participants in advance of the contest, and the value of those prizes and awards may not depend on the number of participants or the amount of any fees paid by those participants.
All winning outcomes must reflect the relative knowledge and skill of the participants and be determined predominantly by accumulated statistical results of the performance of individual athletes in multiple real-world sporting events.
Lastly, none of the results may be based on the outcome of the game, including the score, point-spread. The performance or performances of any single real-world team or any combination of such teams are not the deciding factors in our product.
