Just got this nice email
We want to let you know that you will now see golf contests available in the FanDuel lobby, but they will — unfortunately — not be available to New York users. While we are very excited about offering fantasy golf, we are currently unable to offer these contests to users in New York because the New York Gaming Commission has not yet authorized fantasy sports operators to launch paid contests for sports they did not offer prior to November 2015. Until the New York Gaming Commission finalizes the regulations with a process that allows us to offer new sports to users located in the state, we will block paid entries in new sports.
We are disappointed about this development, and we know you may be frustrated also. We did not anticipate this result and do not believe the temporary permitting process was intended to preclude New York users from being able to participate in fantasy contests that comply with the New York statute. We hope that this is a short term issue, and that we will soon be able to offer our full range of products to our New York users.
New Yorkers can participate in free entry golf contests, and we plan to offer a number of such contests with prizes targeted to New Yorkers as we work to resolve this issue. Click below to enter this week’s $1K PGA Free Play.
Offer Terms: The $1K PGA Free Play contest is only open to users who are physically located in New York. Users physically located in New York are not able to play in paid FanDuel golf contests. Users physically located in AL, AZ, DE, ID, HI, IA, LA, MT, NV, TX, and WA are not eligible to participate in paid FanDuel contests. Additional state limitations may apply.
