Ifrah, Brennan to Discuss Regulating DFS Sector as Nevada Prepares to Take Actio

The American Gaming Association considers Daily Fantasy Sports gambling.  As such they believe it should be licensed and regulated….by them of course.

David Payne Purdum of ESPN broke the news via Twitter Monday:

Nevada Gaming Control chairman AG Burnett has begun legal analysis of daily fantasy sports and welcomes communication from DFS operators.

Gambling911.com founder Chris Costigan will be hosting the legal panel at next week’s Daily Fantasy Sports Expo in Miami Beach. 

“Two of our panelists, attorney Jeff Ifrah and long time gaming industry consultant Joe Brennan, Jr. believe that train has left the station a long time ago,” Costigan tells us.  “The AGA was slow to get on board the DFS bandwagon, now they want a piece of it.”

Mr. Ifrah, who has represented a number of online gambling titans in recent years and now acts on behalf of a number of top Daily Fantasy Sports sites, will present a slide show detailing the amount of investment money flowing into the industry from some of the most powerful business executives and enterprises, including the National Football League.

“At this point in time, it’s really the AGA against everybody else if they want to pick a fight,” suggests Costigan, who confirmed that the gaming association will not be attending DFSE, nor will any of its members, barring any last minute registrations.

“We are getting a few of the land-based Tribal casinos registering last minute,” reveals DFSE organizer Marc Lesnick. 

Up until now, the biggest fear among some in the industry has been the potential for certain state Attorney Generals to come after Daily Fantasy Sports, especially in Southern States where professional sports teams are non-existent and College Football rules the roost.

“The Attorney General of Mississippi is looking at regulation,” Ifrah says.  He is the only Attorney General to hint at such.
