Recently, Massachusetts Gaming Commission Interim Executive Director Todd Grossman said the commission will evaluate daily fantasy sports (DFS) offerings in the commonwealth as DFS operators are recently experiencing increased scrutiny for their offerings nationwide.
Grossman revealed the commission would begin a review of DFS operator and offerings in the state in light of several public examinations across the country.
“There’s been a great deal of activity surrounding the boundaries of sports wagering and daily fantasy sports and whether there’s some overlap between the two. That is to say, whether there are certain activities offered by DFS operators that may be considered sports wagering activity. That’s been addressed in a number of jurisdictions now and has been discussed publicly. I wanted to note we are certainly aware of this issue and we’re in the process of reviewing it,” Grossman said.
