Orange County Register, January 4, 2016

Interpretations of relevant California law are not exactly clear-cut, given the sheer complexity of state gambling statutes. But the lodestar of the industry’s legal argument – that daily fantasy is a game of skill – might not be much of an impediment in the state, according to I. Nelson Rose, a gaming expert and professor of law at Whittier College.

Rose says the existence of a learning curve for daily fantasy players – a major sticking point for operators – would be enough to prove that skill serves a “predominant purpose.” The test alleges that chance can play a part, but must not outweigh skill. Under the same requirements in Massachusetts, the attorney general’s office ruled daily fantasy legal.
