Is FanDuel legal?

Yes, FanDuel’s contests are legal under Federal and most states’ laws. Fantasy Sports is considered a game of skill and received a specific exemption from the 2006 Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA). FanDuel uses the same rules as season-long fantasy sports games; the main difference is that our games last only a day (or multiple days in some cases). In addition, the vast majority of states consider fantasy sports a game of skill and, therefore, legal. In the states where the law prohibits fantasy sports, we do not offer games.
