Greg Gemignani (Member, Las Vegas) was recently quoted in the Wall Street Journal article “DraftKings, FanDuel Face Test of Their Business as They Go It Alone.” One big unknown of the industry is how would daily fantasy sports fare if sports betting becomes more widely legal in the U.S. The U.S. Supreme Court recently agreed to hear a case that challenges a federal ban on sports betting in much of the country. Greg told the Wall Street Journal that he doesn’t see how daily fantasy could compete in a world where “you can bet on sports directly instead of having to use this somewhat clunky process.”
