    Woke up to this unfortunate gem: http://www.legalsportsreport.com/9130/fanduel-draftkings-reach-ny-settlement

    Thoughts with you guys in New York.

    Statement from FanDuel

    FanDuel made the following statement via a company spokesperson:
    “We are announcing that as of today, FanDuel will cease offering paid contests in the state of New York per the terms of a settlement reached with the Attorney General on certain aspects of the ongoing litigation.

    New York is a critical state for FanDuel. FanDuel is headquartered in Manhattan, where we employ more than 170 young smart, passionate fans who are committed to innovating and providing the best fantasy experience possible. We are proud to be one of New York’s largest startup companies, and while it is disheartening for us to restrict access to paid contests in our home state, we believe this is in the best interest of our company, the fantasy industry and our players while we continue to pursue legal clarity in New York.”

    Statement from DraftKings:

    DraftKings Statement Regarding The Settlement with The New York Attorney General

    “Effective today, as part of a settlement reached with the Attorney General’s office, DraftKings will stop offering paid daily fantasy sports contests in New York State.

    We are an industry leader in technology, innovation and consumer protections, and we are grateful to the hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers who have enjoyed playing fantasy sports on DraftKings for the last 4 years. We will continue to work with state lawmakers to enact fantasy sports legislation so that New Yorkers can play the fantasy games they love.”

    MODERATION NOTE: Now more than ever, we all need our voice to be heard. Make Your Voice heard here. Please stay on topic in this thread, we understand people are mad and/or frustrated.

    So… like I have friends are openly discussing illegal stuff in plain view of “cops.” And I’m not sure what to tell them. Don’t know why I decided to bring that up but just needed to get that off my chest.

    Hey for no reason, I’m gonna put this link here and it has nothing to do with the above sentence like at all.

    New York has to be one of the most crooked and backward states in the country and it’s mostly because of those that live in NYC and feel superior to the rest of us.

    Nobody is tricking their own VPN or anything like that, they’re just moving to a different state to enter contests

    huh?

  • tvsfrink

    I don’t live in NYC and I feel superior to everyone.

  • Moxieland

    I find myself checking box scores and convincing myself that every scrub that’s doing well would have been in my lineup. The joys of living in a nanny state.

    So a question, I’m from buffalo, I go to Canada 3 days every week in the summer. I can enter contests (even if legal in ny by that time) in Canada and since they don’t pay taxes on prizes I wouldn’t have to pay taxes on contests I entered there?

    I hear what your saying and agree with you, but I don’t think I could be exempt from paying taxes because Im a ny resident who plays in Canada. Worth asking thou

    Sorry I could have wrote that clearer.
    NYS considers you a resident and that you owe NY taxes if you reside in NYS at least 183 days for the tax year.

    My big win plan was to move to a no income tax state like Florida so long as there is 6 months left in tax year, thereby not owing NYS income tax.

    NY tax on $1 million dollars
    NYS $66,871
    NYC $38,535
    Total $105,406

    Fortunately my employment situation would accommodate this maneuver.

    Yea, that makes sense

    I just spoke with DK support. I asked: “If I enter a lineup in New Jersey, then travel to New York later that day, can I edit that lineup from New York?”

    The response was positive.

    “Hi Max,

    Yes, you may edit a lineup in New York, however you cannot enter a paid contest from New York.

    Thank you,

    Adam D”

    If this is the case this is HUGE for me. If all I have to do is actually enter my lineup in New Jersey and then I can make all the edits I want in New York this basically puts me back in business.

    Likewise. I work in Downtown Manhattan right near the PATH train, so can hop over to NJ and enter pretty easily. I have had a few people on Twitter confirm that they are able to edit when back in NY, so will be trying it myself later this week—-probably tomorrow.

    Its not as conveient for me because I live in Queens but its doable. I’m going to try it either Friday if I have to go to jersey for my part time job or Saturday when I am off.

    Yeah I’m like 5 blocks from the WTC PATH, so I’m running the experiment this afternoon

    A man with a plan. So if you executed this plan, you would pay zero dollars in tax and get to keep the entire 1 million for yourself?

  • chris360xx

    great news guys I emailed DK and they said it’s 100% location based and not residenct based, so you can enter contests if you’re in a different statemail that allows playing and if you win or cashout or whatever you can in ny or whatever its prohibited… you just can’t ENTER tournies while IN NEW YORK…major win for me living 15 min away from the border of Ct

    Yeah I’m on Chambers. Just got back after taking the 1:27 to Hoboken. Got off on Exchange, went towards the exit and reset the phone, put in an entry on DK, grabbed the next train back, and was able to edit lineup back in the city with zero problem.

  • myb821

    I work in jersey city so should be able to play.

    How long did the train from WTC to Exchange take? What does it cost? Great news.

  • Jaws1002
