Fantasy Bad News In Texas, American Pharoah World’s #1 Horse, Big Losses At Australian Open

FANTASY

DraftKings and FanDuel continue to get bad news. Texas joined New York and Illinois in declaring daily fantasy sports sites violate state law. Texas’ Attorney General claimed that any site that takes a cut for the house is illegal. DraftKings and FanDuel claim they offer games of skill so shouldn’t be penalized. It remains to be seen if these fantasy sites continue to operate in Texas and elsewhere.
