Fantasy sports forum set for BostonThe daily fantasy sports business is the focus of an “educational forum” to be held Thursday in Boston at the Hynes Convention Center.

The Commission has invited “a number of industry experts and stakeholders” to participate in a series of presentations and panel discussions on the current status of fantasy sports.”

The list of topics to be covered includes but is not limited to business models, risk models, internal controls and the “growing pains” associated with what has been a controversial industry in a number of states.

Live streaming of the day-long series of presentations and discussions can be accessed through the Commission’s website at or follow the live tweets with MGC’s @MassGamingCom throughout the meeting.

State Attorney General Healey has said she believes daily fantasy sports in the form of contests offered by FanDuel and DraftKings can continue to operate if the regulations that insure integrity and consumer protection can be put in place.
