State lawmaker introduces bill regarding fantasy sports sites

A state lawmaker says he wants to make it clear that a lot of what Fantasy sports sites like Draft Kings and Fan Duel are doing is illegal in Ohio. Republican Senator Bill Coley of the Cincinnati area says daily fantasy sports sites are essentially gambling pools for profit which are already outlawed in Ohio. Coley has a bill requiring that 100% of the money paid into these games must be sent back out to the winners. The Ohio Attorney General’s office has said in a memo that the laws on pools for profits are unclear when it comes to daily fantasy sports.
