Europe players?

Is there any chance that Europe players can play on DraftDay?

I don't understand why they don't open their service to european customers. I'm from Poland, and I would love to deposit money and play on your site.

Re: Europe players?

I guess they want to be careful in regards to the whole gambling vs. skill game issue. Although it seems to me it's pretty obvious it's a skill game.
Doesn't seem to me they should have a lot of problems in europe, I mean we can already play the season fantasy sports on yahoo, fox and the like

I'd like to know too where non US/Canadian players can play real-money fantasy football. You mention Yahoo, but I understand their "pro leagues" are restricted to US residents.

Re: Europe players?

Can very well be, that is also kinda weird. I guess I just don't see a difference between a free league and for actual money.

Re: Europe players?

The same reason US residents can play on Poker Stars play tables but not real money tables.

Re: Europe players?

There's no law that prevents companies from offering fantasy sports gambling to, say, UK customers. Are you saying that to circumvent UIGEA US-based fantasy companies have to restrict to US customers? That'd be weird.

On the same note, is there any chance that PS might start offering fantasy sports any time soon? Sounds like a logical next step after casino and sports betting.

Re: Europe players?

No and I was trying pretty hard. Maybe for some countries like UK, but not for EU players in general.

Re: Europe players?

FFPC claim (email) UK players are welcome. They only do season-long, not DFS though. Any reason why they they would allow players from pretty much any country, while DFS operators don't?

Re: Europe players?

I guess the operators seem to think so. Which is weird because I don't think there are a lot of countries know what it even is.

Re: Europe players?

Its considered gambling in Europe - so high taxation, complicated regulation etc. Doing this bussines in US is much easier. And normal sport betting is legal in EU, so there might not be such high demand for DFS like in US where it supplements sport betting for many people.

Re: Europe players?

you do realize that countries have their own regulations. They just can't have a monopoly in order

I can't believe that Draftkings have Ed Norton in their commercials and he isn't even appearing in it. But the can't be open to the whole world. Shame.
