Indiana

Last Updated: 8/1/2016

The state of Indiana passed a new law that becomes effective as of November 1st, 2016. Unfortunately, this new law makes it impossible for us to offer our MFL10s Leagues to participants from the state of Indiana for the remainder of the 2016 football season and the foreseeable future. Therefore, we have updated our Terms of Service so that residents of IN can no longer join MFL10s leagues when the new law goes into effect. Note that this new development only applies to residents of the state of Indiana. All other users will be able to continue playing MFL10s the same as before.  And Indiana residents can still use our commissioner league service as always for their own private leagues.

This is certainly a frustrating development for fantasy sports enthusiasts in the state of Indiana, but it is also a major burden for the entire fantasy sports industry — especially for season-long contest operators and companies like ours that want to offer leagues with entry fees and cash prizes, such as the MFL10s. As part of the efforts to regulate these types of leagues and contests, the new Indiana law contains some very onerous fees and requirements, which effectively forces us out of the market for customers in Indiana. For example, the licensing fee is $50,000 for any fantasy sports company that wants to operate in the state of IN. Needless to say, we are not able to comply with that type of fee and still be able to stay in business, so we are forced to shut down our operation of MFL10s in the state of IN as part of this new legislation.

Here is an article about the Indiana Law if you want more details and background on it.
