FanDuel is legal
Those who are new to daily fantasy sports might wonder if this is all legal and what the difference between FanDuel and a Las Vegas style sports book might be. Rest assured, if FanDuel will accept a deposit, the site is legal in your state or province. FanDuel is a U.S. based company operating under a specific exemption written into the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (UIGEA) that allows for fantasy sports contests. Some states; Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Nevada, and Washington have their own laws in regard to fantasy sports so if you live in one of the aforementioned states, FanDuel will not accept your entries.
What you can win at FanDuel
