Washington State players are now restricted to free games

We regret to announce that we are no longer able to accept paying players from Washington state.

We constantly monitor the legal environment in which we operate. This means in the last 2 years we were able to open up to two previously restricted states, Maryland and Vermont, who passed legislation allowing fantasy sports.

However in a recent legal review our lawyers have advised us that we should exit Washington for paid games. Note, there is no specific event that has caused us to make this change. This means Washington joins Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana and Montana on the list of states that we must restrict. The change now brings our list of excluded states in line with major fantasy providers like CBS Sports.

The restriction affects both new and existing players.

We sympathize with players in Washington who have enjoyed playing for real money on FanDuel. We are currently working with the Fantasy Sports Trade Association to get the laws changed or clarified in these five restricted states. In the meantime we invite you to enjoy free games on FanDuel, and of course to withdraw your account balance if you have one.
