    What an exciting time! I’m sipping champagne. Huge victory for DFS. Dom Twan congrats on getting your job back! Yeah time to wait because DFS is rolling with the big boys (regulators) now. It may be even longer for DK based on the strict requirements I’m reading. Sports like nascar and golf might have serious problems with regulators, plus they have wayyy more sports than FD. I’ll be surprised if DK and FD get up and running at the same time. DK may have to remove some of those sports.

    Hey guys, just a quick update here. Media reps from both FD and DK have told me this morning that they haven’t been given a firm timeline, but they’re expecting to be operational “soon,” as in a matter of days, as opposed to weeks. We should have a full story on the situation when we get more info.

    I spoke to the person at the Gaming Commission who is running this. It essentially comes down to them reviewing each application, I think they have 3 last I heard including ours, and approving them as they get through each. They did not give any information on timing outside of saying the process was set up to be completed in a timely fashion. Of course if they need any changes made it would make the process longer for that operator.

  • nychas

    How about “hours as opposed to days” or “minutes as opposed to hours”?

    Thanks everyone for the updates! Can’t wait!

  • KindGuy

    Lol I remember someone on this thread saying they won’t get excited until the very second they can enter a contest while being physically located in New York. Looks like they were right….. The wait continues…. Sigh

    Ugggh, what happened to all this being streamlined for the companies that were in operation prior to the ban. They made it sound like all they had to do was apply and it was an auto grant of the license and the sites would be operational within hours. Would love for DK/FD to chime in too. It’s a little ridiculous that FantasyDraft is the only company actually communicating.

    Yeah, didn’t they promise us in an email that they would be fully operational within 24-48 hours?

    That timeframe is about to expire, and I am more anxious than ever to get back out there and play.

    I never received any email about operations back within 24-48hours.

    Nascar and golf are not part of any new regulations.
    As much as I know,that wasnt part of the DFS bill.
    It is only college sports that are banned…

    Draftkings just sent me an email to verify my information. I did and now it seems we here in NY are good to go

  • jokerdpo

    So Z1DANIEL, you are able to enter a contest like the $3 Moonshot, from a NY location? I have not yet received an email from DK nor can I enter any contest that is not free to enter.

    I get this when tried: Paid Contest Restriction

    What does this mean?

    Due to your current location, you are not allowed to deposit or enter paid contests. Users located in Alabama, Arizona, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Montana, Nevada, New York, Washington, Puerto Rico, and Guam are only allowed to enter free contests.

    I got the verification email as well. It explicitly says to verify “so you are ready to play once Draftkings is registered with New York” —- nothing is accessible yet from NY.

    Really hoping today was my last CT drive. Took me an hour and a half to go 20 miles thanks to I95 traffic.

    All depends if they got the permit today.
    You can expect an email from DK and FD once NY is rolling again.

  • pabloplyr

    We should play by Monday. Cuomo stops working on Thursday
