Georgia State Lottery Demands Answers From DraftKings, FanDuel

ATLANTA (Associated Press) -- Georgia Lottery officials are questioning whether the daily fantasy sports industry can legally operate in the state.
In a Sept. 23 letter to the CEOs of FanDuel and DraftKings, Georgia Lottery attorney Joseph Kim says the companies appear to violate Georgia law. Kim says gaming is generally banned by Georgia's constitution, except for state lottery-run games.
Representatives for FanDuel and DraftKings didn't immediately respond to emails requesting comment.
Kim told The Associated Press neither company responded by the Friday, Oct. 16 deadline given in his letter. He says lottery officials are considering their next step.
Several states are examining the fantasy sports companies after it was revealed that employees often played on competing sites. Nevada regulators have ordered the sites out of that state unless they get a gambling license.
