Hello New York FanDuel Fans,
As you have no doubt seen, earlier this week the New York Attorney General sent us a cease and desist letter regarding play on FanDuel contests from New York. We want to take this opportunity to update you all on the situation – and make you aware of some changes that are going into effect.
FanDuel is one of the largest tech startups in New York, employs hundreds of people in this state, and has been a source of entertainment for all of you over the last five years. We are honored to have helped build this community of fantasy players and will exhaust all legal options in our pursuit to continue to be a part of your lives.
As such, it is with great disappointment that we will begin the process of limiting access to users located in New York while we pursue the opportunity to be heard in Court.
For now that means the following:
– The full slate of this weekend’s contests across all sports will run as scheduled.
– However, we will stop allowing new deposits on the site, from New York, as of today.
– All users in New York can and will be able to continue to withdraw their money as always.
The situation is developing and we will continue to keep you all updated on any changes, while we pursue our day in court.
