Often this relocation is outside of the State of Ohio.

"What we have here is a failure to communicate"

This blog’s title is from the 1967 movie, Cool Hand Luke, in which the late Paul Newman was cast as the wisecracking hero, Luke. In the movie, Luke gets drunk and foolishly knocks the head off of a parking meter in a small rural southern town.

Draftkings and Fanduel: Legal in Ohio

Online daily fantasy sports have exploded in recent years. Draftkings and Fanduel are the two most prominent websites offering daily fantasy sports. While these websites are incredibly popular, they may run afoul of state criminal laws. Individual states have different positions.

Some states have such restrictions that Draftkings and Fanduel do not operate in Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, and Washington. The remaining states have not clarified the issue entirely or require a license (Nevada). The current state of the law in Ohio does not address whether online daily fantasy sports are, in fact, legal. Approximately 2 million people in Ohio participate in online fantasy sports. With an estimated population of 11.6 million, that is 17% of Ohioans that could be affected or at least must consider the consequences of any potential legislation affecting Draftkings or Fanduel.
