Daily Fantasy Sports Industry

The Daily Fantasy Sports industry was created to provide instant gratification to a small group of fantasy sports enthusiasts. The industry has since transitioned from an idea into the mainstream and has become a billion dollar business with millions of active participants. It has also led a number of people to question if daily fantasy sports is gambling or not.

Daily Fantasy Sports have been in existence in Europe and legal since 2014, it has followed the same consumer-facing model as North America. Global Daily Fantasy Sports Inc. hopes to disrupt the competitive landscape by being the first true fantasy platform that was built for both regulated markets and exclusively as a B2B network. They plan to offer flexible avenues for gaming operators to enter the DFS space by allowing them to protect and expand their audience with simple integration of both player databases and existing online wallets.
