HOLLYWOOD, Calif., June 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sports Vote, a campaign by The New Sports Economy Institute (NSEI), publishes a detailed commentary and analysis on the June 18, 2016 daily fantasy gambling bill in New York. The following is an excerpt:
"Pop quiz of the day. Which one below is correct?
a) Chickens are not animals
b) Betting on horses is not gambling
c) Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) is not gambling
The answer? NONE OF THE ABOVE, of course.
Lawmakers would beg to differ. Louisiana apparently once excluded chickens from the definition of "animal" to allow cockfighting. Betting on horses is exempt from the gambling definition in the state of New York. At the very least, however, appropriate procedures were followed when betting on horses was allowed in New York in 1939.
Lawmakers bested those efforts on June 18, 2016 when they passed the daily fantasy sports law in the State of New York sending the bill Governor Cuomo's way for signature."
