Rhode Island Attorney General Says DFS Is Legal

Rhode Island Attorney General Peter Kilmartin said he conducted a review of daily fantasy sports, which he found mix chance and skill and are legal under state law.

Kilmartin explained that, in Rhode Island, the question depends on whether chance is a dominant factor in determining how prizes are distributed. He found that daily fantasy sports are a mixture of chance and skill and are therefore allowed. He also encouraged lawmakers to establish regulations.

“Despite daily fantasy sports being legal, I believe there should be strict regulations imposed on the operation of these sites to address the issues we have experienced with gambling in Rhode Island, including infiltration of the criminal element, youth participation and addiction issues,” he said.
