Hit and Run: Amaya for DFS Regulation; Harry Reid “Online Gaming Is Scary”; PokerStars Sets Another Record

Staff : October 7th, 2015


DFS still in the mainstream media’s crosshairs. Glantz triumphs at Parx. Amaya Gaming calls for regulation of the DFS industry. And more.

Outside the Lines Tackles DFS Tuesday AND Wednesday

On Tuesday and Wednesday, ESPN’s Outside the Lines has devoted the bulk of their half hour afternoon timeslot to the current situation unfolding at DraftKings. On Tuesday the show had attorney Daniel Wallach, ESPN reporter Darren Rovell, ESPN fantasy expert Cynthia Frelund, and Ben Brown, the owner of DFSReport.com, the site that broke the story.

On Wednesday DraftKings was able to give their side, as none other than CEO Jason Robins appeared on the show, followed by a brief segment where he and Daniel Wallach had a polite back and forth about the direction DFS is headed and what the data leaks mean in a broader sense.

The video with Robins’ segment is not yet available.
