Can I Play on Monkey Knife Fight From New York State?

New York residents are reportedly allowed to play on Monkey Knife Fight even though New York is not explicitly listed among the site's permitted jurisdictions.

Monkey Knife Fight is an online fantasy sports prop hybrid site born out of a May 2018 US Supreme Court decision that now permits sports wagering nationwide, essentially testing the limits, but not quite crossing the line.  It utilizes a prop game platform.  MKF is considered a Daily Fantasy Sports-prop hybrid game/platform.

You will select a prop such as the OVER/UNDER on the total number of points a player scores.  More than one player must be selected (parlay).

Current sports offerings are: NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, Soccer, and Golf.  College is excluded at this time.

The site should prove especially popular with New York State residents even though their home teams tend to suck these days.  Yes we're talking about you Knicks, Giants, Jets and Rangers.

The Yankees should once again be a powerhouse in Major League Baseball, thus providing a demand to Monkey Knife Fight year long.

Though it appeared as if daily fantasy sports outlets would be prohibited in New York, the NY State Gaming Commission soon opted not to oversee DFS regulation back in November 2018.

The two largest Daily Fantasy Sports sites - Draftkings and FanDuel - provided their own interpretations when confronted by Legal Sports Report.

"We understand that the State will be taking an appeal from the court’s decision, and DraftKings plans to continue to operate in New York while the courts and the State continue to sort this out.  … Any impact from the decision (if it ultimately stands) will be stayed while any appeals are pending."

The law regarding fantasy sports in the state is simply not in effect despite some earlier stronghold tactics by former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.  This might explain why Monkey Knife Fight is currently allowing New York residents to play on the site without expressly encouraging them to do so.
