&#8230- is a shitty bill&#8230- since it excludes sports betting.

RELATED: A news article (in French) implies, between the lines, that BetFair (who always respected the US laws) should be later granted a license to operate in the US, the day it becomes legal, while InTrade-TradeSports (who didn&#8217-t) should not be granted a license. Hummm&#8230-

Playing fantasy sports is not gambling. The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act includes a specific exemption for fantasy sports, provided the prizes are determined in advance and the imaginary teams dont correspond to any real teams.

I expect TradeSports and BetFair to join this industry, one day.
