Leading daily fantasy sports (DFS) operators DraftKings and FanDuel Monday reached a deal with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to “stop taking bets in New York State.”
The agreement represents a major victory for Schneiderman who’s been trying to oust both sites from New York since October of last year. His primary contention — DFS games violate state gambling laws because they’re based on luck, not strategy.
