LAS VEGAS - A law f irm hired by DraftKings to investigate claims an e mployee used valuable inside information to win a$350,000 second-place prize on a competing daily fantasy sports site contest confirms that it didn’t and couldn’t have happened. T he Boston-based daily fantasy sports company released a short two- page summary Monday saying it would have been impossible for the employee to use the information to win on FanDuel because he didn’t receive the helpful data until 40 minutes after that site’s contest closed. The comp anies’ employees aren’t allowed to bet on their o wn sites but until recently could play on competing sites. W hen the allegation j umped from online message boards to front p ages, the unregulated daily fantasy sports in- d ustry had already begun attracting scrutiny from regulators, lawmakers a nd observers inundated by advertisements prom- i sing to make millionaires out of players competing on the sites. Customers pick player lineups much like season-long fantasy sports games, wagering a couple quarters to thou- s ands of dollars in some cases, and win based on the points earned during a single day. The company’s announcement came days after Nevada gambling regulators told daily fantasy sites to get out or get agambling license, federal lawmakers repeated calls to hold a Congress ional hearing looking into the industry, several l awsuits hoping to become class-action suits have been filed and lead- e rs in several states have n oted they’re looking at the contests’ legality. I n Massachusetts, where DraftKings is b ased, the state’s attorney general’s office has been reviewing daily fantasy s ports. Spokeswoman Cyndi Roy Gonzalez said, “ there is little question that this industry will need to be regulated in order to protect consumers, and we intend to make our findings and recommendations public at the end o f this review.” In Nevada, it appeared that DraftKings hadn’t entirely left the state since the cease and desist order Friday. Nevada Gaming Control Board chair A.G. Burnett said his agency was monitoring the situation after it was told the company has to adjust its software plat- f orm in order to comply. Daily fantasy sports s ites have insisted they aren’t gambling, clinging to an exemption for fanta- s y sports in a 2006 federal l aw and argue what they offer is a game based in s kill, not chance. The investigation was l ed by the former U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts, now with firm G reenberg Traurig, and confirmed DraftKings’ o wn earlier internal review. The claim of possible insider trading raised questions beyond the single incident, including who has access to internal i nformation and when, and what consumer protections were in place. Major League Baseball, an investor in the site, expressed surprise at the time that employees were known to play on competing sites. Shortly after the story surrounding the employee caught fire, DraftKings and Fan- D uel both announced they were changing their poli- c ies to bar employees from playing on competing sites. D raftKings, when they a nnounced Greenberg Traurig would investigate t he incident, said the firm had already been retained t o review the company’s policies and procedures. The results of that review h aven’t been made public, yet. C hris Grove with site which has been closely tracking daily fantasy sports industry developments, said at the time the employee allegations at D raftKings wasn’t the story. “The lack of a coherent, transparent system for ensuring fairness, the inability of the industry to provide credible answers, and the sheer amount of money being risked by players within this system is the story,” he said. “This one incident is just t he first genuine peek into the attitude sites take tow ard these critical issues.” LegalSportsReport- . com reported Monday t hat a lesser-known daily fantasy site, StarsDraft, h as taken the step to pull its real-money contests o ut of all but four states where the legal landscape is more clear: New Jersey, M assachusetts, Kansas and Maryland. I t is operated by Amaya, the same Canadian company that owns Po- kerStars. StarsDraft had already pulled out of Nevada, Florida and Michigan.
