California Tribes Want In On Daily Fantasy Sports

by | Feb 11, 2016 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

In an effort to capitalize on the explosive Daily Fantasy Sports industry, California Tribes are seeking answers to legal questions surrounding the activity.

“The Internet looms large in the future of gaming, therefore our future,” CNIGA Chairman Steve Stallings told delegates to the association’s annual meeting at Harrah’s Resort Southern California near Valley Center.

“Whether it’s iPoker, daily fantasy sports (DFS) or sports wagering, we are going to have to face this digital monster,” Stallings told the group’s 32 member tribes.

“My hope is that we can find a way to be unified on this new political battlefield.”

Some 60 California Tribes were slated to meet with state Assemblyman Adam Gray, sponsor of three pieces of legislation to regulate and tax sports betting, DFS and Internet poker.

For over five years now, lawmakers in California have attempted to push through legislation that would permit real money Web poker in the state.  They have met with opposition from some tribes, mostly related to what they perceive as deficiencies in the bills language.
