We just had an update we wanted to pass onto everyone. You may have heard that Attorney General Ken Paxton is reviewing the legality of fantasy sports in Texas, and may make a decision as soon as early 2016.
We’ve had other threads posted on similar topics, but the best action you can take is to contact your Attorney General (AG) & local State representatives. — If you live in Texas, here is the link to do so in a time-efficient manner:
Thank you everyone who has reached out & continues to do so.
Official Statement from DraftKings for Texas
“If you’re like us and you believe that daily fantasy sports are fun, entertaining, games of skill, click here to tell Attorney General Paxton and your state legislators directly that you would oppose any measure that harms your ability to play fantasy sports in Texas.
As adults, we are fully capable of choosing how we want to enjoy sports and deciding which games we want to play. But some of your government officials seem to believe that the government should be making those decisions for you.
Fantasy sports build community. You play DraftKings because of that community, and we are proud to provide you with the contests you love. Now it’s time for our community to stand together to make our voices heard; help us protect that which we have all worked so hard to build together. Send your officials a note telling them that you oppose any effort to ban fantasy sports.
With your help, we can protect the game we love.
