Fantasy Sports Legislation

Legislation is quickly becoming a very concerning issue in the Fantasy Sports Industry.  As a consumer, you need to be aware of the changes in the landscape for fantasy games like MFL10s, especially if you live in one of the states that is actively trying to pass new laws to regulate and potentially limit your ability to enjoy your hobby!

Background and Overview  If you are new to this topic, then be sure to start by reading our Fantasy Sports Legislation Overview page.  This is the best place to start to quickly get up to speed on all of the issues.

Attention residents of Ohio!  Your immediate action is needed if you want to keep your access fully intact for fantasy leagues with entry fees and cash prizes (such as MFL10s leagues). The recently proposed bill in Ohio  would prevent us from offering our MFL10s leagues to residents of Ohio in the future if it is passed.  Click here for more info on how you can help fight to keep your hobby in Ohio!

State by State Legislation

Be sure to check our State Legislation page to see where you stand with respect to the legality of fantasy sports, and whether or not your state has active or pending legislation that may directly effect your ability to play in leagues like our MFL10s! If your state has pending legislation, then be sure to Contact your Representatives to let them know that you object to any laws that would be prohibitive for small companies to operate in your state.

Season Long vs. Daily

One of the primary sticking points for all of the legislation is the difference between Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) and traditional, Season Long Games. Almost all of the legislation is focused on regulating DFS, but the language is broad enough that it encompasses season long games and contests as well, even though many of the terms and concepts don’t even apply. Check out our Season Long comparison page for more details and background on this conundrum.
