    Governor signed it today. Not sure when we will be able to legally bet on sports but it looks like we can play of Fanduel and Draftkings immediately.

    FINALLY. I can finally use my own money on FD and DK in the near future. I just cannot believe it took this long to allow me. That is all.

    I just tried to play and it wouldn’t let me. I think I heard it won’t be ready until just before the start of the NFL season (they are still tinkering with some of the rules).

    *EDIT: This is from the article posted above

    “Those rules would likely be implemented in July or August, before college sports and NFL games start in the fall.”

    anyone know if Draft Kings sportsbook will be available in iowa?

    i don’t live in Iowa but its only a 10 minute drive. i would love to place some bets with my DK account

  • FSG22

    In the article it states these rules take effect immediately. I was thinking when they said July/August that was the sportsbetting part.

    That is my understanding as well. I reached out to draftkings and Fanduel support. Neither one had an idea when it would be available to play, both said the legal teams are working on it.

  • snellman

    Do Fanduel, Draftkings or any other sites have any information on when Everything may be a go? Football season doesn’t start for a while, but would be fun to get a little baseball in.

  • unageo09

    They just popped up here in Alabama about 2 weeks after the governor signed the bill. I don’t know what the bill in Iowa says but they are probably going through some procedural legal stuff. Congrats and welcome back!

  • moped_jones

    Still not able to play here in Iowa. Hoping it gets resolved before the start of football.

    Lol at the thought of even living in a place like Iowa.Wasting life

    Maryland was one of the ones on the tweet I saw that was going to allow college but its also not showing on DK and won’t let me join any CFB contests.

    I hope this is just something they have to adjust rather than wrong info we were given.

    Pretty sure I saw that DFS in Iowa might not be until spring 2020. Don’t quote me on that. Betting actually should be happening first i think.

  • JENSGT

    DK said Maryland is still not a go. Bummer

    That was a very thoughtful and informative comment. Thank you for being so brave to say that.

    I travel there once a year to hunt. Great state. I’d rather live there than on any coast for a 1/10 of the price.

  • snellman

    From what I have read lately it looks like the 15th of this month might be a day to keep an eye on.

    Will see if the DFS follows or not.

    Say it, brotha! Love the West Coast (born and raised), but ended up in Midwest for work. Miss those mountains but love living like LeBron on a middle class income.

    From a Ceder Rapids Paper today: https://www.thegazette.com/subject/news/sports-betting-iowa-rules-casinos-20190815

    “Are the daily fantasy sports sites ready?
    Not quite yet. Daily fantasy sports sites like DraftKings and FanDuel are working with but not yet licensed by the state, Ohorilko said. But he expects they also will be licensed and ready in time for the football seasons.”

    The funny part is he’s probably not doing anything productive with his life, yet takes a dump on an entire state that he knows nothing about.

  • RBs_Dont_Matter

    Still no update from DK or FD on this topic. They say there’s no time frame.

    You’d think they’d really want to push to make this happen before Week 1 of the NFL season to take advantage of all the new players.

  • catcakes

    I read an article a couple weeks ago that DK had applied for their license. I’m surprised it has taken this long to be approved
