StarsDraft Pulls Out of Florida Amidst Indictment Fears

News of a grand jury convening in Florida to review possible violations by Daily Fantasy Sports companies has sent PokerStars-backed StarsDraft packing.

In recent days customers of StarsDraft, formerly Victiv.com, began receiving the following email:

For now, we are not able to accept deposits or allow Florida users to enter contests. Florida customers will have access to login to their accounts and the ability to request withdrawals via the StarsDraft platform. As one of the most licensed online gaming operators in the world, we review each potential DFS market on a case-by-case basis. Please know this decision was not made lightly. We will continue to review the opportunity to provide StarsDraft in Florida and hope to be able to offer StarsDraft to our Florida customers with clarity and confidence in the future.

Florida-based gaming attorney Dan Wallach told Legal Sports Report that he was advised of the grand jury investigation late Friday.  Details of the probe were not immediately available.
