    Ipoker vote is today. I hope everyone supported that as well and sent in emails etc…If poker passes, there is little doubt dfs does as well.

  • tommykarate

    if it passes by the 16th, what are we looking at as an ETA to get back to action?

    Obviously DK and FD would want back in asap. It would most likely be up to what they are required do by the bill. One would think they know what is in the bill and could go ahead and get that ready ahead of the bill passing.

    It would be wonderful if NY was back for Friday the 17th and I live in Kentucky. NY being legal should impact other states and bring them into line.

    If it passes, I imagine it will take weeks probably months for them to get up and running again. The govt will need to implement the regulatory scheme. The companies will need to do various things to comply. The govt will need to do their part to ensure that the companies are complying. Not so simple as handing over a check.

    Really? I’d imagine they would have most regulations in place and would be up quite quickly. Poker on the other hand would take weeks/months. Just a hunch, but DK/FD know what the requirements are, and will have most in place from the jump. Not sure the sites can afford to wait months to get New Yorkers back.

  • paulmsr

    No one will know the requirements 100% till that thing passes, they’ll keep making tweaks till they get the votes

    Senate Bill S6783A states:

    S 2. This act shall take effect immediately, however, an entity that
    13 was offering interactive fantasy sports contests to New York residents
    14 prior to November 10, 2015, may continue to offer interactive fantasy
    15 sports contests to New York residents until their application for regis-
    16 tration has been approved or denied, unless such entity fails to file an
    17 application with the commission within ninety days of the issuance of
    18 emergency regulations pursuant to article 15 of the racing, pari-mutuel
    19 wagering and breeding law, as added by section one of this act.

    This.

    Plus let’s not kid ourselves. We have limited insight into what is going on behind the scenes. FD/DK (and their lobbyists) have pretty much full insight, including a fairly decent knowledge of how the votes will go.

    And I know I’m reaching here, but I still believe they had some sort of under the table agreement in place w/ Schneiderman that if legislation didn’t/doesn’t pass, wheels will be put into motion to allow both companies to resume operations by the start of the NFL Season. Both companies, with seperate legal representation, agreed to fold NY and let him have his public win, on the same day?!

    Interesting mention that the session could spill into Friday if necessary. Hopefully it won’t come to that.

    Why’s that not good? It says the bill will be passed, then edited in the next few months. Id be fine with that

  • myb821

    Because if cuomo decides he doesnt like it he can veto it.

    Scroll up and read the excerpt from the bill

  • Chuky

    Lmao as expected nyga filed a complaint yesterday that fd, draftkings and fantasy sports for all that their lobbying efforts are being done illegally. See the trend? They trying to use the same bogus tactics they used in Chicago. I hope legislation passes Thursday night or Friday so I don’t have to hear anymore garbage from these casino clowns. All it takes is for dfs to win one big state with a heavy casino presence and their argument will be mute everywhere else. Cmon NY let’s do it!!!
